After a gruelling session, your body gets depleted from glycogen, which should be replaced straightaway for better muscle growth and recovery. When you train the main fuel source is muscle glycogen, which is composed of long strings of glucose molecules. The glucose will break from the glycogen chain as needed when exercising in order to generate ATP.
What do Carbohydrates do?
Carbohydrates give the body the energy needed to get you through a hard session. When it’s ingested carbs are broken down into simple sugar (glucose and fructose), which will then be absorbed in the bloodstream for energy. Some of this sugar is then converted into glycogen, and it’s stored in the liver.
Liver glycogen is converted back into glucose in between meals to be used as an energy supply. After a strenuous gym session, that glycogen that was stored gets depleted. Restoring the storage of it is essential to replenish the body for better results.
