An overview of the most important aspects

An overview of the most important aspects

  • Bodybuilders and strength athletes have a significantly higher protein requirement compared to normal people.
  • This can range from 1.5g protein per kg body weight for the casual gym-goer or up to 3g / kg body weight for ambitious and well trained athletes, in cases of steroid users and competitors even higher.
  • In a diet, more protein should be consumed to protect muscles from breakdown
  • The diet should be constantly varied in terms of protein sources in an effort to get the most complete amino acid balance
  • Both slow and fast-digesting protein sources should be used, depending on the situation
  • Protein shakes are convenient and can help to reach the optimal amount of protein
  • The most important protein meals are in the morning, after exercise and before bed
