Why don't you lift every 36 hours, /fit/? Thats how long enhanced protein synthesis last for after a workout: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8563679
I lift in the morning, then the next evening, then take a rest day. Fat gains are minimal. I can't believe I used to eat a surplus 36+ hours after lifting
I am so sick of everyone thinking their CNS is push beyond threshold. Damn near 100% positive you have no idea what it's really like to have an exhausted CNS which is in need of recovery.
You need to learn the difference between CNS, muscle, tendon & ligament (endurance, fatigue, damage)
No rule saying you have to be fat to sumo.
Definitely sumo, which is what happens when you don't cycle calories and bulking more than 24h after a workout
There are people who lift 3x a week and are eating big 60h after a workout
>No rule saying you have to be fat to sumo.
correct, but the more mass the better, generally speaking.
and there is a pretty strict limit to how many pounds of muscle you can put on naturally.
plus you want that low center of gravity.
desu i am surpised you don't see more sumo working on their squat mobility and plyometric strength.
not saying they need to be doing weighted squats or anything, but at least ATG squat hops would help develope some explosivity.
>Bulking into fat sumo mode
he should ask /plg/ for advice on how to get the bodyfat % higher.
That doesn't mean you should train at those intervals. MPS has nothing to do with stress/overtraining
Trying to re-derail from a sumo thread to a MPS thread
>muscle protein fractional synthesis rate still alive and kicking 48 hours after workout (3 h = 112% above rest levels, 24 h = 65%, 48 h = 34%); muscle fractional breakdown rate returns to rest level after 48 hours thou
>w/o considering training; "the 24-h mixed muscle protein fractional synthesis rate was 25% higher in the EVEN (0.075 ± 0.006%/h) vs. the SKEW (0.056 ± 0.006%/h) protein distribution groups" where EVEN group=broteins administered evenly between breakfast, lunch and dinner while SKEW=broteins administered mainly at dinner.
>"The consumption of a moderate amount of protein at each meal stimulated 24-h muscle protein synthesis more effectively than skewing protein intake toward the evening meal. "
>Muscle protein synthesis is suboptimal following a typical carbohydrate-rich breakfast
>"In conclusion, compared to the typical carbohydrate-rich American breakfast, consuming a moderate amount of protein (30 g) at breakfast may promote increased utilization of dietary protein and enhanced muscle synthesis in adults."
>20–25g (corresponding to~8–10g EAA)  of a rapidly absorbed protein [6, 8, 53] may serve to maximally stimulate MPS after resistance exercise in young healthy individuals.
