As you may or may not have guessed, we’re pretty into protein powder here at Suppy. And, because we love it so much, we’ve scoured the internet to find some creative ways to use the stuff. Here are a few of our favourites ways to add taste and nutritional value to your diet, in no particular order.
Time is precious. Whether you’re just starting out or you’re an experienced lifter looking to make better use of your time, compound exercises are the most efficient way to train your body and pack on muscle. Because compound lifts require multi-joint movement, they are a great way to engage all of your body’s major muscle groups. Even muscles that aren’t primarily targeted get recruited in a supporting function.
Your body needs protein to support muscle growth and maintain good physical health. But, there are still a lot of questions about protein powder and its place in the modern diet. Many of these misconceptions come from images of the 90s, where primitive formulations of chalky shakes were reserved for bodybuilders with frosted tips and stringy tank tops. Luckily, a lot has changed since then.
Everyone knows that alcohol isn’t the healthiest of beverage choices. But life is all about balance, and I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t indulge from time to time. While the impact that alcohol has on muscle protein synthetic is debated, it’s definitely not doing you any favours. And though a few beers may slow your fitness goals, it's the choices that accompany those drinks that are the real progress killers, like that burrito at 2 a.m. Don’t let last night’s decisions affect your progress. Instead, drink some water, hit the gym, and kick that hangover to the curb.
