Yes, everyone who trains and aspires to be a bodybuilder but many of my clients I take on still don’t know the essential basics…Not only will protein help you build and maintain lean muscle, but it is a vital building block to any weight training program. The number 1 most bio-available form of protein is egg whites because your body assimilates it into the muscle the quickest. The next most important form of protein is whey protein which is your protein powder. You can also get lots of protein through, chicken, fish, lean red meat. To determine how much protein you need you multiply 0.8-1.0 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight. Ex: if you weigh 130 pounds you need 104 grams to 130 grams a day of protein.
