Welcome back to our bi-weekly blog from our partners NutriKate.
Protein is something that we hear talked about quite a lot so NutriKate are going to help us understand why it is so important, especially when training with EXCAPE.
We hope you all had a lovely Halloween weekend! This week we’re going to touch on protein, taking a particular look at protein post-exercise.
Why do we need it?
Well, we know that resistance exercise is the best way or ‘gold standard’ for building muscle mass. After exercise, both muscle protein breakdown & muscle growth occur at the same time, this is a natural response. The inclusion of protein in your post-exercise meal helps to ensure that muscle growth exceeds breakdown allowing for an overall net gain of muscle protein! So when resistance exercise & protein work in tandem, muscle gain is optimised!
How much protein should I have?
Hope training is going well for everyone at the moment!
Thanks for reading, we hope you learned something new!
