Proteins: The No. 1 substance for muscle-building
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.
What is the optimum supply?
Efficient fitness training starts with the right preparation!
For a successful workout, you should make sure that you have a sufficient supply of fluids and minerals even before the workout. Drink 500 ml Mineral Pur Drink 1 hour before the workout.
If you are training with the aim of losing weight or during low-carb phases, a pre-workout snack is not necessary. However, training on an empty stomach is difficult - try it out carefully!
Feed your muscles with carbohydrates if required, and don't forget to drink!
For intensive or long training units:
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.
For low-carb-diet or losing weight:
Drink Mineral Pur Drink regularly.
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 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.
