I have never taken a protein supplement in my life and I recently found myself wondering if I was missing out on something because I see so many people in the gym doing it.
And when a practice member asked me if they should be, I have to be honest that I didn't have the best answer for them so I decided to update my knowledge and do some learning!
It is one thing for your "ripped" friend to tell you that you should take a protein supplement, and a completely different recommendation if it comes from high-quality peer-reviewed research.
In this episode of the BEAP, we look to recent research to figure out:
1) How much protein do you need to consume for optimal gains from resistance exercise training?
2) Do different people have different requirements?
3) Does it have to come from a supplement or a specific type of protein?
4) Does the timing of the meal/protein matter for your training gains?
I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I enjoyed putting it together and having a better answer to this much asked question.
