So, my understanding is that after a weight lifting session, significant energy (prefering protein?) is used in rebuilding damaged muscle.
During obviously more cardio based TR sessions, my legs ache and I wonder if this is somewhat similar damage (albeit in lesser quantities) to that done in weights? If so, then does this also lead to energy use after the TR session itself? Would these calories be negligable, and if not, are they included in those estimated by TR?
I’m honestly interested, and not just trying to justify post workout cakes.*
- might be trying to justfy post workout cakes.
