Muscle Cell Volumizing
To reiterate from my previous post, Muscle Cell Volumizing it optimized when the muscle cell is Super Hydrated; which literally pumps up the muscles That is the reason your arm size increased.
Cell Volumizing is maximized with…
1) Carbohydrate Loading
The protocol involves dramatically decreasing carbohydrates for three days and then essentially over consumption of them for three days.
There is a dramatic decrease in body (water weight) with the three day decrease in carbohydrates.
The three days of Carbohydrate Loading produces an increase in body (water) weight.
Cyclical Ketogenic Diet
This diet employs about five days of the Ketogenic Diet followed by two days of Carb Loading.
Years ago, I and two of my friend used the Cyclical Ketogenic Diet for out Strength Training.
In a two day Car Load, I would gain just over 6 lbs of body weight. My two friend would gain over 10 lbs of body weight; they were much larger than I was, thus the difference.
All of our measurements and lifts jumped up after the Carb Load.
Downside of Cyclical Ketogenic Diet
Research Dr Jacob Wilson, University of Tampa’s Human Performance Lab, determined that two issue with the Cyclical Ketogenic Diet are…
After Carb Loading, it took individual approximately 4 days to get back into ketosis. Thus, the body was only in ketosis for around 1 day a week.
Greater fat mass was gained on the Cyclical Ketogenic Diet.
Now back to,
Muscle Cell Volumizing…
- Creatine in most individuals (Responder Sensitive) produces increase Muscle Cell Volumizing; Super Hydration in the muscle cells.
Non-Responders are individual that don’t obtain the Cell Volumizing Effect with creatine; such as myself.
- Certain Anabolic Steroids
Dianabol and Anadrol are notorious for Super Hydration/Muscle Cell Volumizing; which increases muscle size and Maximum Strength.
- Increased Sodium
As we know, one of the issue with the Ketogenic Diet is that sodium is initially depleted on a low carbohydrate diet due to water weight loss.
However, once Keto Adapted, the body finds a way to rehydrate body and muscle cells.,
Sodium Intake Prior To Training
This method ensures an optimal training session.
An increase in sodium, increases the amount of fluid/water in the body; since water and sodium have an affinity for each other and are companions.
Individual on a Ketogenic Diet should consume something like…
Chicken Bullion Beverage
Most Chicken Bullion contains over 800 mg of sodium and over 210 mg of potassium. It’s a pretty tasty drink. .I usually add a little bacon fat to it because I like the flavor.
Consuming some type of high sodium beverage prior to training ensures a good workout.
High Salt Diets & Athletic Performance w/ Dr. James Dinicolantonio
This is a great interview with Dr. James Dinicolantonio on the value of increasing sodium intake for healthy individual and especially for Keto Adapted Athletes.
- Muscle Cell Volumizing prior to training and maintaining it, ensures optimal training results.
While Dehydration produces a decrease in performance and muscle size.
Super Hyperdation is on the opposite side of the See Saw; producing and increase in performance and muscle size.
Multiple Method of Producing Cell Volumizing
Creatine is effective with most individuals who are Responder Sensitive.
Carb Loading is effective: consuming a high carbohydrate intake, especially prior to training.
Certain Anabolic Steroids (Dianabol and Anadrol) produce Cell Volumizing.
Prednisone, and other corticosteroid, produce water weight gain, as well.
- Chicken Bullion Beverage
A high sodium beverage like Chicken Bullion for Keto Adapted individuals increases Cell Volumizing prior to training, as well as maintaining hydration while on the diet.
Water and sodium have an affinity for each other and are companions. Chicken Bullion has both.
