Recovery status of physical exertion is measured by the polypeptide GH gradient upon elevated secretion via somatotroph cells of the pituitary gland.
GH relation to AA, noticeably Ornithine alpha ketoglutarate, Arginine pyroglutamate and Lysine, were not found to act as neurotransmission reciprocal agents, binders or catalysts.
Though research findings proved the majority of the test subjects to have increased GH (Percentiles differ between experiments), the control groups who had been given placebo supplementation had over 95% match in GH increments.
The matter is still being researched, though concrete regulation between GH and AA have not yet been correlated scientifically. The general placebo remains constant.
Sensation of hunger has been proven null to claims of deprivation years ago. Glycemic stores in the liver and bloodstream are durable to self sustain and avoid depletion (Via gluconeogenesis) for a period of 3 days. That entails a full fasting period of that time, given only the non-energy yielding nutrients- Water, vitamins and minerals, while having complete sustenance of FFM during the 72hr period.http://www.lef.org/protocols/prtcls-txt/t-prtcl-160.html

This is nothing new to me, I feel like im re-reading the same things i have read time and time again.
However.. I NEVER just stand by what i read... I stand firm by EXPERIENCE alone.
I always put the scientific facts up in my head as I try certain things, but never does it stop me from trying new things.
If you truly bodybuild and are learning your own body, you know that rule 1 is : break the rules.
This is how i have come to certain techniques and quirks that work for me. Sometimes i recommend them to others, sometimes i don't. If it works for me it may or may not work for someone else.
Good post though, very informative. Especially the part about hunger, but I will always stand by what has worked for me, and its eating on a timely basis just BEFORE i feel hunger set in.This post was edited by ]GS[ Controller on Apr 14 2012 01:44pm
