Why is protein so important to achieve exercise results? Read on to find out!
Consuming protein is just as important as your exercise regimen for muscle maintenance and athletic performance. That’s because protein is the building block of your muscles. Here are five reasons why protein is key:
Numerous studies have shown that there is a positive relationship between protein supplementation and improvement in muscle building and performance enhancement. For that reason, it’s crucial to make sure that your protein needs are being met. In order to enhance athletic performance, it’s recommended to consume 1.2-2 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight each day. For someone that is 150 pounds, or 68 kilograms, that is 81-136 grams of protein per day. The exact amount depends on several factors – exercise intensity, exercise duration, weight goal, and frame goal.
Timing of protein intake is also important, especially if you do resistance training. Protein should be consumed about 30 minutes after a workout to help repair muscle breakdown and further build upon the muscle. OWYN’s High Protein Shakes are the perfect snack after a workout. They provide 35 grams of protein to help you reach your daily protein needs.
