Protein co-ingestion....

This one popped out of Pubcrawler the other day. I'm not sure if this is applicable to real life training....eating while training?

Protein co-ingestion stimulates muscle protein synthesis during resistance type exercise.

In contrast to the impact of nutritional intervention on post-exercise muscle protein synthesis, little is known about the potential to modulate protein synthesis during exercise. ...............We conclude that, even in a fed state, protein co-ingestion stimulates whole-body and muscle protein synthesis rates during resistance type exercise.

Sipping on BCAA's during training is common advice.

Thanks Neal. Looks like some support for that practice then.

I'm not really in the whole bodybuilding scene much nowadays so may not be up to date with that sort of advice.
