Amino Acid requirements adjusted to focus on pre-exercise production of myoglobin, creatine-kinase-m, and creatine
 
The table shown below on this page, is based on the extrapolations illustrated in the table at http://coolname001.angelfire.com/sportbiofuels.htm.
 
The question had become, if one is to focus on giving the body what it needs to produce myoglobin, creatine, and creatine-kinase-M, whose production and use by the body increase when the body is exercising, then, to what extent should actual official and estimated daily requirements for consumption of the various amino acids be adjusted to account for the fact that the focus is on myoglobin, creatine, and creatine-kinase-M production by the body, since the snack/meal being planned for is a pre-exercise snack/meal?
 
The table on this page shows standard official pronouncements, and (where no such proclamations exist my own personal estimates) re the daily requirement for the various amino acids (with the so-called 'non-essential' amino acids, official proclations re daily requirements rarely exist).
 
The problem with this accepted conventional wisdom that entails dismissing of certain amino acids as "nonessential" in the diet, is: the scorned "nonessential" amino acids are considered "nonessential" because of the body's ability to cannibalize "essential" amino acids in order to produce "essential" amino acids; even those who degrade certain amino acids as "nonessential" admit this.
 
Yet obviously, if the body sacrifices "essential" amino acids to produce "nonessential" amino acids, shortages in "nonessential" amino acids could lead to shortages in "essential" amino acids, meaning that the "nonessential" amino acids are (even proceeding according to the postulates of those who declare such amino acids to be "nonessential") actually not "nonessential" in that their absence leads to shortages of "essential" amino acids.
 
The table shown below on this page shows the official proclamations re amino acid requirements and my extrapolations and estimates re what such requirements are for amino acids that have not been proclaimed for by the official authorities.
 
The table also shows, how I would alter such official and estimated daily requirements, in order to account for a focus on providing precursors for myoglobin, creatine, and creatine-kinase-M, whose production in the body increases when the body is exposed to physical exercise.
 
The idea being that providing the body with what it needs in order to maximize amount of energy expended before onset of fatigue, can help to produce improvements in general (and also specifically cardiac) health.
 
The formula used in the table is based on the extrapolations and estimates described in the text and the table at http://coolname001.angelfire.com/sportbiofuels.htm.

Formula Used to revise the daily requirement estimate, to focus on the production in the body specifically of myoglobin, creatine kinase, and creatine:
 
original estimate times ( ( 72(% of myoglobin wt / % total official & est requirements) + 20(% of ck-m wt / % of total official requirements wt) + 7(% of creatine wt / % total official & est requirements wt) ) / 99) = adjusted estimate
