Protein Supplements

Protein supplements

The main supplement in any bodybuilders diet is extra protein.  There are 3 types of protein supplements to choose from: Whey, Casein and Soy.  I have always used whey protein because it is the most highly recommended amongst professionals and I had success using it so I never stopped.  

Having enough protein in your diet is essential to building muscle.  Muscles are made out of protein and its best to have a protein shake after a workout but within 45 minutes after you are done.  If you wait too long, the protein doesn’t have the optimal effect.

These are the brands of whey protein powder supplement that I recommend.

1. GNC Whey ISO Burst

- This is a GNC product so it can be trusted.  It is very high quality whey isolate with an exceptional protein percentage and is low in fat and carbs.

2. MuscleTech NITRO-TECH

- Also a very high quality product and I really like the taste of this in a protein shake as well.

3. Allmax ISO FLEX

- This whey protein isolate tastes great as well, especially when you consider how little sugar is in it; highly recommended.
