  • false. And I would
  • I updated it because I realized it didn't really work with this thread
  • Yeah, I could use some new friends.
  • OH MY GOD. Idea. Let's hear everyone's best impression of Morgan Freeman narrating something.
  • I'd be happy to, but I'm at work right now so... it'll be a little bit yet
  • ...and making America great again
  • It's *kitten* bull *kitten* that *kitten* *kitten* pansies put into effect for the *kitten* soft hearts. Just kitten. :wink:
  • So when you say "carbs" I assume we're talking about glycogen stores, then, rather than triglycerides? edit: Well, no, nevermind, since glycogen stores can be replenished using triglycerides.
  • Looks like everyone's done here. Ah well. Off I go. Next up is fast and slow twitch fibers followed by oxidative and glycolytic fibers.
  • Here's a direct quote: "Figure 10.19 Utilization of Immediate, Short-Term, and Long-Term Energy Sources. The intensity and duration of an activity are important factors in energy utilization. For short sprints, the available ATP and the ATP made available through phosphate transfer are primarily used, whereas for longer…
  • Okay this one I do really want to discuss because I think I just learned the exact opposite in class, and I'd like to see if it's another "no, it's just that _______" like we just had.
  • Well, that said, I'll probably still use LISS as I have before - to give myself caloric room to kill a pint of Ben & Jerry's from time to time and not feel guilty about it (key words there)
  • Also I did look into this, btw, before I replied to you. There's no citation list for specific chapters or sections so it's hard to say who added all that to the part I referenced. I have the main authors and then the reviewers list. It might be in the physical copy of the book, which I have at home, but here at work I…
  • Well, for anyone interested, according to "the book," available ATP and phosphate transfer is used in the first 5-6 seconds, such as a 50-meter run. After that's used up, the muscles begin glycolysis as a short-term energy source. Finally, around minutes 5-6 (after 400 meter run), aerobic respiration kicks off as the…
  • Actually I have a diagram that explains that by comparing different runners on a track, if you're interested... There should still be a "sheepish" emoticon. :blush:
  • It was more out of embarrassment since apparently everyone already knows this and I'm just now showing up to the table. Well, I haven't gotten to that point in the class yet (if it'll be discussed at all, anyway) so I wouldn't know where to begin touching on protein sparing specifically, but hopefully it's coming up.
  • You could... but ultimately it ends up with me realizing "oh yeah... all you're really doing is creating a larger deficit" and thereby making myself look like a total dumb *kitten*. At least how muscle eats got explained, I guess.
  • I guess this can be deleted, then. Sorry for wasting everyone's time. Thank you for the replies.
  • That's interesting... I hadn't thought of it that way. So the cardio is not adding a greater than 500C deficit? If not, I might think they'd be about the same... So I completely see your argument about deficit now. Well the very first reply was me saying I may have put it in the wrong section.
  • Really that just comes down to how long you're in deficit, so the answer is it probably depends... eventually you're going to lose that muscle if you're not using it because the body knows that (muscle atrophy generally occurs beginning at two weeks of non-use). I'd keep lifting. Maintain the demand to keep the muscle as…
  • And since it apparently needs to be stated... if I didn't write it, I didn't imply it either.
  • Man, y'all are missing the point here. I'm not talking about losing weight. (caloric deficit). I'm not talking about what "burns fat quickest." I'm talking about what burns fat at all and how you could, effectively, burn more of it than doing JUST lifting and JUST dieting. No. Caloric deficit does not mean fat loss. It…
  • Anyway, as is typical with the gym community, solid proof - posted with a source and everything - is met with "I don't believe you"s and that's fine. At the end of the day it's still going to be how your body works. Have a great day, everyone. When in doubt, (among other engines) is your friend.
  • No. To burn more anything, you create a caloric deficit. Not just fat.
  • I posted a specific source. You can compare it by finding others, if you like, though. The book only came out in 2014, so it's not incredibly likely the chemistry of how a muscle eats is outdated. I can post the list of peer reviewers if you like, but it's three pages long.
  • Again... I'm not comparing the two.
  • Definitely
