It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that bodybuilders should be striving to create anabolic reactions in their bodies. The last thing you want is to be in a catabolic state. Unless your body is continously in a state of anabolism, you’re virtually wasting your time in the gym. Muscle growth won’t be taking place. In fact you could be experiencing just the opposite – suffering catabolism and losing muscle tissue. What’s the use of busting your ass in the gym for hours every day only to be losing muscle and not gaining it?
