Anabolism = muscular growth
Catabolism = muscular breakdown
The “anabolic window”, whether myth or not, should be viewed in a more realistic term; the period post-workout in which the depletion of glycogen and amino acids has occurred. There are only 21 of these amino acids. Each the building block of macronutrients (protein). I do have a favorite. Arganine.
Facilitates metabolism protein waste
Precursor to Nitric Oxide (think vasodilators products like NO Explode)
Helping the kidneys remove waste products from the body
Maintaining immune and hormone function
But I digress.
Simply put, glycogen helps to infuse protein into your muscle cells for repair. Consuming food shortly post-WOD maximizes protein uptake (growth).
