    Pickleball and Piranha

    I play paddle and racket sports when I'm not pumping iron. When it's hot out I break a pretty good sweat and work really hard when I come home my clothes smell like ammonia. I've found this to mean I'm burning muscle. The day after it feels like I jumped in a pool of Piranha and they took little bites out of all my muscles. Not a good feeling. I want to learn if there is something I can eat or drink Pre, during and Post workout to reduce the muscle loss.

    Thanks,
    CK

    Language and writing were also made available, the poetry of Khitai, the philosophy of Sung; and he also came to know the pleasures of women, when he was bred to the finest stock.

    Well, cardio is good for you. The activity you mention should not be 'burning muscle' - it's burning fat. You can lose muscle if you are in a severe calorie deficit and dont have enough fat to burn. Bottom line if you really think you are losing muscle its not the activity, it's your calorie balance. Eat more.
    It's never too late!
