Are you concerned that all of your hard work in the gym might go to waste when you don’t get in enough protein? Actually, if you are lifting hard, and heavy…you need more protein that the average Joe. The ones that want those torn down muscles to rebuild and repair need somewhere around 1 – 1 1/2 grams per lean pound of bodyweight of protein daily.
The best and easiest way to make sure that you are getting the right amount, is to drink your protein. Forget wasting precious time digesting…we want those muscles to get their fuel now! Besides, who can carry around chicken, tuna, and turkey, let alone a steak on the heavy gym days? Besides the cooking, and the money spent on lean and healthy proteins, sometimes you don’t want to EAT protein 6 times daily, even though you know you should. That is exactly where a shake comes in to play.
Not just any protein powder either, but premium protein powder. Zero fillers, zero fake sugars, zero additives. Only the best for me, and only the best for you.
I choose either Sunwarrior Warrior Blend which is plant based, contains the full amino acid profile, and is gluten free and vegan on the mornings that I have a shake for breakfast. I drink a different shake every morning. It just depends on what flavor I’m in the mood for!
After my workouts, I choose Isagenix IsaPro whey based protein powder to make sure that my body gets the right type of protein to get my muscles into the repairing phase. I never want my hard work in the gym to get wasted by thinking I would be eating in 30 minutes, and all of a sudden over an hour has passed. I have spoken before of the “golden window of opportunity” and that window is not much more than 30 minutes. That is why a liquid protein gets into your body and into your bloodstream faster than a meal.
So give your body exactly what it needs to get you into the best shape of your life.
Drink a shake, take one with you, and see those muscles start popping out before you’re ready to bare your bod next spring!
