it might blunt hGh response (ala Art Devany), but it achieves an insulin elevation, which will help preferentially shuttle carbohydrate and amino acids into muscle cells and encourage protein synthesis.

PWO nutrition is a HUGE point of contention.

and it depends on your goals. if your goal is gaining muscle mass, i'm a big proponent of the pre-workout protein shot and post-workout protein + carbs shot. if you're trying to lean out, i'm a big proponent of training in a fasted state and remaining fasted for a while after training. there isn't a single protocol that's best for everyone.

Yeah. No lie on that PWO nutrition point.

Relying on the neurohormonal response is a huge point of contention as well.
