Why is protein important?
When you exercise, you are effectively tearing and breaking muscle fibres apart. The extent of this depends on the intensity and duration of your workout.
Protein, which is broken down into amino acids in the body, plays an important role in providing essential building blocks to the damaged muscle, allowing it to repair and rebuild after each training session. As the body does not store protein, consuming high quality protein around exercise is central to providing the muscle with the key elements it needs to optimise recovery.
How can I increase my protein intake?
Optimum Nutrition products are a great way to supplement your protein intake to allow recovery to take place after exercise.
Their GOLD STANDARD 100% WHEYTM is the world’s best-selling whey protein and contains 24 g of premium whey protein, 5.5 g of naturally occurring BCAAs, all with just 1.3 g of fat, 0.7 g of sugars, and with 1.4 g of carbs. With a selection of great flavours to choose from, these handy shakes allow you to quickly refuel the body, ideally within 20-minute window following exercise, to promote the building of muscle.
Great for satisfying a sweet tooth while you’re on the go, their selection of protein snacks such as their delicious Whipped bars deliver 20g of protein with no added sugar, providing another easy way to up your intake.
