More recently, studies have begun to provide data supporting the contention that pre-exercise ingestion of carbohydrates, amino acids, protein, and creatine prior to resistance training are effective modalities for enhancing exercise training adaptations and decreasing exercise associated muscle damage.
The scientific literature associated with nutrient timing is an extremely popular, and thus ever-changing, area of research. Upon reviewing the available literature, learn what conclusions can be drawn at this point in time.
