Proteins: The No. 1 substance for muscle-building

proteins

In general, sportspeople are recommended an increased protein intake totalling 1.2-1.7g protein pro kg  of body weight per day. In particular after severe muscle fatigue (for example caused through fitness training), the adequate supply of high-quality protein is important. 

In this way, muscle building and the retention of developed muscle mass is supported. After all, amino acids, which are provided through proteins, represent the "building blocks" for fatigued muscles.
 

Tip: The neutral flavour of whey protein makes it suitable for the targeted protein enrichment of meals or beverages.  Depending on taste preferences, stir into foods such as muesli, yoghurt or creamy soups. Alternatively, it can be dissolved in water, milk or a fruit shake.

PREPARATION:
Efficient fitness training starts with the right preparation!

With a small pre-workout snack consisting of carbohydrates and proteins, the foundations are laid for successful training. For example, a Crispy Protein Bar eaten approximately 1 hour prior to starting training supplies you with the required nutrients. Also: don't forget to drink water! 

DURING TRAINING:
Feed your muscles with carbohydrates if required, and don't forget to drink!

In general, always make sure that you drink sufficient water during fitness training. In case of intensive and long training units lasting over an hour, you should also supply and protect your muscles through carbohydrate intake. Small quantities of isotonic energy drink are recommended for the purpose. 

REGENERATION:
Now proteins and fluids are important!

A supply of 20-30g protein, if possible directly after training, has proven ideal for regeneration purposes. Higher intakes do not increase the advantages. In addition to the quantity, the protein source influences the effect. Whey protein is particularly effective, due to the relatively high leucine content. 

Protein drinks or bars are suitable for supplying your muscle cells quickly and conveniently with high-quality protein. You can comfortably eat 25g protein via 300ml Protein-XXL - especially recommendable dissolved in cold milk. The powder can be effectively mixed using the Comfort Shaker. It is best to drink your Fitness Shake ½ hour after sports.

After a highly extensive or intensive training, carbohydrates are also important in addition to muscle-building protein. The Crispy Protein Bar or the Protein Regeneration Turbo supply an optimum protein-carbohydrate combination.

PREPARATION:
Efficient fitness training starts with the right preparation! 

If training is conducted alongside targeted weight reduction or during low-carb phases, the focus of your snacks should be placed on proteins and small quantities. In part, snacks are waived altogether. However, training on an empty stomach can be difficult - it is essential that you try it out first!

 

DURING TRAINING: Remember to drink, and only eat carbohydrates if required!

In general, always make sure that you drink sufficient water during fitness training. You should only supply your muscles with carbohydrates during very intensive training or fatigue. Small quantities of isotonic energy drink are recommended for the purpose.
