The Fallacies of Glutamine Supplementation
Glutamine has played a major role in sports nutrition for more than a decade. With its long history in supplementation it also brings many misunderstandings in terms of its effectiveness and proper use (similar to the fallacies associated with creatine). For those that discredit glutamine supplementation because it is a non-essential amino acid, they need only look at the research that points to glutamine being depleted from high intensity exercise and its need to be replenished to maximize muscle glycogen.
Over training is the result of repeating high intensity workouts without allowing your body enough time to recover. This can result in a decrease in exercise performance and progress towards your training goals. A large percentage of weightlifters suffer from over training and don't even know it. The reality is you can only grow when you recover, and increasing the use of an amino acid responsible for improving recovery time, will maximize your progress towards your goals.
