Default Around WO nutrition and meal timing

How does the 3-5 hour meal frequency relate to the around workout nutrition recommendations, which can be so close together?

If that isn't clear, I'll try to explain. I was having trouble wording the question.

How long it takes for something to digest depends on

size of meal
form of meal

a small pre-workout drink won't take 3-5 hours

So does the small size of the pre-workout drink also directly relate to the body's utilization? It doesn't make muscle insensitive to the effect of aminos?

Or am I reading it TOTALLY wrong.

Thank you so much for your time.

"Essentially, providing amino acids too frequently appears to decrease the body’s utilization of those aminos. Rather, having discrete meals where blood amino acid levels first increase (stimulating protein synthesis without overloading the body’s ability to utilize AA’s) and then decrease for some time (so that muscle can become “sensitive” to the effect of aminos again) would seem to be ideal."

It's a good question, isn't it?

But around workout nutrition sort of 'lives' in a different place than the rest of the data which wasn't looking at nutrients around training.

I kinda thought that it did, but I was wrong one time before, so just wanted to check.

Thank you for your time! I really appreciate it.
