What you are looking at is two different measurements of protein synthesis in the human body. “Whole body protein synthesis” is a measurement of the protein synthesis happening in your entire body. This includes things like your liver, heart, lungs, brain GI Track and your muscles. This measurement does not tell you WHICH part of your body the protein synthesis is happening in, just that it is happening. “Muscle protein synthesis” is specifically measuring the amount of protein synthesis that is happening IN your skeletal muscle.
Like they say, if you want to make an omelet, you gotta break some eggs. And DALLAS68’s heavy workout with sets in the 8-12 rep range is going to take your muscle fibers to the breaking point. As opposed to going lighter with reps in 15-rep range, the heavier sets in his workout will bring your central nervous system into play and activate your whole body. It’s this kind of full-body engagement that cranks up your adrenaline to burn lots of calories. Pushing your body with heavier weights while you’re calorie restricted will be a challenge. You just have to push your body so it keeps responding and developing. What works for DALLAS 68 is to keep trying to set new personal records every week, even if they’re just an additional 5 pounds--not only for squat or deadlift, but for everything from barbell curls to triceps extensions. Total body workouts help to bring up many bodyparts, and do it fast. More stimulation in each muscle fiber area helps the body to respond. With the proper nutrition, DALLAS68’s approach can be devastatingly refreshing to those who do the standard two-bodypart-a-day splits. This fat-loss workout provides vital shock to the bodies system which can really boost metabolism that in turn burns more body fat daily—and do it in less time because you’re working more bodyparts.
