Classes such as Grit Strength and Burn focus on lifting weights to encourage muscle building. Never tried Les Mills classes before? We recommend trying lots of different classes to find your favourites.
Another important factor in gaining muscle is eating adequate portions of protein! Protein is the building block for growing muscle, therefore, eating adequate amounts of protein throughout the day helps you maintain your muscle mass and promotes muscle growth when you do strength training. It is recommended that your daily intake of protein is at least 1.2-1.7 grams per kilogram of bodyweight. Examples of high-protein sources include; meat, dairy products, beans and protein supplemented foods such as protein powders.
Numerous studies show that eating plenty of protein can help increase muscle mass and strength. If you’re physically active, lifting weights, or trying to gain muscle, you need to make sure you’re getting enough protein. You can split your protein portions throughout the day, in your breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks! Stay tuned over the next coming weeks for some of our favourite high-protein meals and snacks! Check out our blogs on everything you need to know about protein, and use our meal plans as nutrition packed inspo!
