Estimates for essential and nonessential Amino Acid recommended intake in general and prior to physical exercise
 
The table shown below on this page, is based on the extrapolations illustrated in the table at http://coolname001.angelfire.com/sportbiofuels.htm, which show the basis for the multiplier that is used to transform normal resting amino acid requirements into estimated optimal amino acid intakes prior to physical exercise. It is also based on http://coolname001.angelfire.com/nonessentialaminos.htm, which explains why the percentage weight representation of an amino acid in the human body relative to other amino acids in the human body, is an appropriate standard  for estimating intake requirements for nonessential and amino acids.
 
The table shown below on this page produces estimates for what amino acid intake should be prior to exercise and how such differs from general resting state amino acid requirements.
 
Table: Amino Acid requirements adjusted to focus on pre-exercise production of myoglobin, creatine-kinase-m, and creatine
 
Boldface black = essential amino acids for which unambiguous official mg/kg-body-weight intake recommendations exist;
 
Boldface blue = percentage representation of amino acid in terms of weight in body relative to total weight of all amino acids in body; mgs/kg-body weight estimated recommended daily intakes as based on amino acid percentage weight representation relative to total weight representation of amino acids in body. As explained at (insert angelfire page address), I have good cause to respect the weight percentage of an amino acid in the human body relative to total weight of other amino acids in the human body, as an indicator of what the intake of an amino acid should be in the human body. Thus in boldface blue we see the general resting amino acid requirements.
 
Boldface red = the figures in boldface blue, adjusted using the multiplier in J, to produce estimated recommended intake of amino acids prior to engaging in prolonged exercise. The multiplier in J serves to emphasize amino acids which are relatively high in terms of their weight representation relative to other amino acids in myoglobin, creatine-kinase-M, and creatine. Myoglobin, creatine-kinase-M, and creatine, are produced and used by the body in unusually high amounts during periods of prolonged physical exertion. My web page at (insert angelfire web page) explains the basics behind the construction of the multiplier. The formula for the multiplier is shown underneath the table. Hence boldface red shows amino acid requirements prior to physical exertion, whereas boldface blue shows a more general picture of resting amino acid requirements.
 
Note: that column K, which is column G altered with multipliers in column J designed to emphasize amino acids unusually prevalent in myoglobin, creatine-kinase-M, and creatine, totals to 100 just as column G does. Thus column K is a correct and elegant weighted redistribution of column G, and column L is a correct and elegant weighted redistribution of column H. Thus the principle of remembering that there is limited space in the stomach and that one food displaces another in the stomach is adhered to.
 
Comparing the pre-physical-exercise formula to the more general formula, the exercise formula emphasizes: Lysine (77% greater emphasis compared to general formula); Leucine (20% greater emphasis compared to general formula); glutamine (31% greater emphasis compared to general formula) and etc.

Formula Used to produce multiplier figure:For Amino acid blank, _____ mutiplier is:
 
( ( 72(for Amino acid _____ ,weight in myoglobin as % of weight of total amino acids in myoglobin  / for Amino acid  _____, weight in body as % of weight of total amino acids in body {col Q} ) + ( ( 20(for Amino acid _____ ,weight in creatine-kinase-M as % of weight of total amino acids in creatine-kinase-M / for Amino acid  _____, weight in body as % of weight of total amino acids in body ({col R} ) + ( ( 7(for Amino acid _____ ,weight in creatine as % of weight of total amino acids in creatine / for Amino acid  _____, weight in body as % of weight of total amino acids in body {col U} ); sum of this divided by 99.
