If you’re going to the gym and lifting weights, and not supplementing with protein, you’re not going to have any benefit and you’re just wasting your time. Your body requires protein both before and after a work-out to build and repair muscles. Pre work-out, you need to consume about 10 grams of protein and some carbs. Carbs raise your insulin levels, slowing down the breakdown of protein in your muscles. Most importantly, you won’t be using stored protein for energy. Post work-out you should consume another 15-25 grams of protein to help muscles repair and strengthen faster. For an extra boost, try taking amino acids, like Monster from CytoSport, which give a boost to muscle recovery.
Tasting just like a berry-bursting creamsicle, the Muscle MLK Love Your Muscles cocktail will have both your taste buds and your muscles loving this refreshing, post-workout drink. Plus, there’s a whopping 25 grams of protein in each bottle, so it’s a perfect way to kick-back after a hard workout at the gym.
