Recovery and Protein

6 results

Whilst carbohydrates are an endurance athlete's main fuel, protein is still a very important macronutrient. Maintenance, repair and growth of muscle mass all depend on protein, plus the immune system function depends on it too.

How much protein does an endurance athlete need?

All endurance athletes need protein, though the heavier the train, the more you need. Recent numbers suggest that athletes should consume ⅔ to ¾ of a gram per pound of body weight. To work this out multiply your weight in kilograms by 1.4-1.7, depending on how hard you train. This is the amount of protein in grams you need per day.

When should an endurance athlete take protein powder?

Post-workout is the obvious time for an athlete to consume protein powder - a fast-acting protein like whey will get to work quickly. Post-workout isn't limited to only protein powders, though - an all-in-one productc like Recovery XS helps replenish electrolytes lost in training, and BCAAs assist with muscle recovery and protein synthesis too.
