Last week I had 3 articles released on MyProtein.com. I may sound a little biased here, but collectively they pretty much tell the entire story on Protein shakes and amino acids, or the story that’s worth telling anyway. Trust me when I say the info I’ve put in these articles, without waffling on or putting in too much sciencey mumbo jumbo; will provide you with a few knowledge bombs that you can drop the next time you get in an argument at the gym about protein shakes.

THIS article about the Branch-Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s) and in particular the BCAA Leucine provides some background about amino acids, how they can be effectively used, and how leucine could be the next big thing you’re not taking!



In THIS article you will find out pretty much everything you need to know about protein shakes, what happens to the body around resistance exercise, how protein shakes fit in, and what THE most effective dose of protein is to take around your workout.  Hint-hint 50g 😉

THIS final article covers the topic of bedtime protein, what happens to the body overnight and during fasted periods, and how certain proteins could help combat muscle protein breakdown.

And here’s a little bonus, if you haven’t had enough by now and want to know the full story around protein shakes,THIS article on Myprotein.com I had published about a month ago covers why protein shakes may be more beneficial pre-workout versus post-workout.

 If you have any questions about protein, amino acids or anything else then interact with me over Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter (click the icons at the bottom of the page to connect). Happy reading!
