It's a long-standing idea that post-workout carbs increase protein synthesis and should be ingested soon after your workout.
I recently watched a seminar with Kai Greene and George Farah (I'm sure some of you have seen it) where George made a strong case for not taking any sort of carb post-workout because it kills your GH levels.
Upon reading up on this, I've found (mainly inconclusive) support for both sides of this idea. Now, I thought I'd try to spark the debate with 3 questions-
1.) Do you believe in post-workout carbs, and why or why not?
2.) Has anyone read an actual study showing that post-workout carbs boost protein synthesis?
3.) Should we stop the post-workout carb craze in order to maintain our GH peaks after lifting?
I'd love some knowledgable input. Thanks in advance!
