A Protein For Each Occasion

Sep 11, 2008
Bodybuilders have been able to find many different advantages from consuming different proteins taken at various times in order get the most out of their workout and daily schedules. The following is a detailed list of the four primary protein sources that bodybuilders can choose from, and when each source will provide the most benefits to your routine.

Whey
One of most popular proteins with bodybuilders and strength trainers would have to be whey protein. This can be taken for regular daytime use such as meal replacements and your post-workout meals, which are considered very important. Approximately twenty minutes after completing a workout session you should take 50 grams, which is usually around 2 scoops with most of the popular brands, it should also be taken with 25 grams of dextrose. It is also very easy and beneficial to combine whey with meals. If you're having a meal that you know is going to be a little short on protein, it's not a bad idea to take a scoop of protein with water to better round out the meal.

Casein
This type of protein is made from milk sources and will be burnt a lot slower than most types of protein available. For this reason, there are a lot of trainers who believe it is a good idea to consume casein right before you settle down for bed, this is because it will stay with the body for a greater amount of time than the whey protein, which will burn much faster. It is also beneficial when casein is taken in conjunction with whey for both faster and slower protein absorption rates.

Food
Generated proteins are great and can be very helpful, but food protein is usually the most preferred by bodybuilders and trainers alike. One of the reasons it is better is that it's unprocessed and can digest much easier. Real food was designed for consumption by human beings, which is the reason it has sustained human life for millions of years. Protein powders are not the primary option; these are simply supplements that bodybuilders and trainers use to assist food in meeting their abnormal demands for the body. Real food should always be your first source for acquiring protein when it is possible to do so.

Soy
This is not the greatest source of protein. Soy is developed from plants and can perform for bodybuilders as a good supplemental protein, due mostly to the benefits it can provide to the body's digestive system. Usually soy is used and consumed by vegans or vegetarians that are unable to meet their protein requirements without the consumption of any meat or any animal products. This is not an ideal protein source for bodybuilders.
