It’s been a while – a little late to say Happy New Year – but I have a good reason. I’ve been working on something for you guys.
Go ahead and check out the SUPP UP. 5-Day Military SSE Workout Challenge now. It works best on Chrome (laptop or phone), is free to use and you need little to no equipment so start today – you have no excuse, so get to it! Let me know how you made out by commenting on it when you finish.
Before Christmas, we went over how to get bigger, stronger, healthier shoulders with just one exercise. This time around it’s all about a simple question that’s been asked more times than I can count…
Workout Nutrition DIY: How Much Protein To Take On Rest Days
So how much is enough – and should you be taking in the same amount you would on your training days?
The answer is just as simple as the question.
You’ll remember I went over the importance and benefits of L-Leucine on rest days on an earlier post a while back. While that’s meant to help you when you don’t hit your protein intake, whole food is still an important part of the equation (that’s why it’s in the name of the SUPP UP. Nutrition Guides, after all).
If you’re working out regularly, your body is still working even on your rest days – it’s as simple as that. The thing about understanding the body and muscle is so straightforward – you’re either gaining or losing muscle at any one point in time.
One of the issues with not using your muscles is that anabolic resistance starts to kick in. This hinders your protein synthesis in response to your ingestion of protein – so ultimately, it’d be a good idea to keep your protein levels at a good baseline, if not high.
For those of you that bought either SUPP UP. No Bull Whole Food Military Nutrition On The Go or SUPP UP. No Bull Whole Food Military Nutrition At Home, you’ll know exactly how to calculate how much you PERSONALLY need. If you haven’t well, you know what to do – pick up your copy today over at the SUPP UP. store and if you get them as a bundle, I’ll get my team to send you over a free SUPP UP. ball cap.
Whole foods versus protein shakes are the next question – which ones do it better? I always say whole foods first – if you don’t know how or what to cook on a daily basis, that’s what the SUPP UP. No Bull Meal Planner is for – you can get it as a bundle if you haven’t bought the guides yet, or on its own, if you have already.
Once you’ve got 3 solid meals figured out, there’ll be times when you’ll want to just top-up protein, and this is where protein shakes come in – you’ll remember I also broke down the best types of protein shakes according to your goals to take in another blog post. In my opinion, Micellar Casein is the best option for in-between meals.
That’s it, kids.
