Max-OT Nutrition Basics Continued…
I’m not going to get too elementary nor am I going to get overly scientific about nutrition here. I am going to show you an effective way to calculate your calorie, protein, carbohydrate, and fat requirements for maximum muscle growth. This will lead into next week’s course detailing how to eat, when to eat, what to eat, what supplements to take, when to take them, what supplements to avoid, which ones work, which ones don’t, and finally how you can design a diet and supplement program tailored to you as an individual.
I’m going to remove the guesswork and provide a clear path for you to follow. I will specify several different supplement and diet programs that will allow you to take advantage of the specific cellular environment each Max-OT workout puts you in.
A major misunderstanding about muscle growth is that it occurs in the gym. This is not correct at all. Muscle growth occurs not in the gym, but during the recuperation period – the time that you are not training. Max-OT training “sets up” the process for muscular growth. This is important to understand as it has a direct impact on how you structure your supplement and diet program. You’re not growing while you are in the gym. You are just “preparing” to grow.
This bit of understanding contributes to specific diet and supplement structures that will provide the nutrients your muscles need when they need them and when they can be utilized most effectively and efficiently. It only makes sense to work with your body and the physiological pathways that Max-OT training creates to optimize nutrient utilization.
A haphazard supplement program coupled with a haphazard diet will make building muscle a next to impossible task no matter how you train
You don’t want this. In fact, you want to take advantage of every possible opportunity the molecular environment within your muscles presents to encourage rapid muscle growth.
You spend hours and hours in the gym literally punishing your muscles and yourself, so compromising your results because of a misguided nutritional approach is nothing more than self-abomination. You owe it to yourself to extract the most from your efforts. The more you understand what proper nutrition provides to muscle growth the more prepared you’ll be to maximize your muscle growth.
