More Bodybuilding Basics - Importance of Protein in the Post-Workout Meal
Almost everyone realizes that athletes require greater amounts of protein
than sedentary individuals. In addition to eating more protein, athletes also
need to be aware of the times of day in which they consume both different types
and amounts of protein. The post-workout meal is one of the most important times
and meals of the day regarding protein intake. Researchers have shown that
eating a protein-rich meal at this time can greatly increase protein synthesis
and possibly muscle growth.
In one study, subjects were given an intravenous protein supplement following
either a period of exercise or rest. Protein synthesis was then measured in each
subject to determine how the different types of activities affected protein
synthesis. Results from the study concluded that protein synthesis was doubled
in the subjects who had just performed a session of strength-training exercise.
The researchers in this study concluded that this was more than likely due to
the increase in blood flow to the subject's muscles following exercise.
Since the rate of protein synthesis and possibly muscle growth can double when
protein is consumed post-workout, it is imperative that a meal containing
quality proteins be consumed at this time. When determining protein types for a
post-workout meal, whey protein makes an excellent choice. The reason for this
is that whey protein contains the best amino acid profile of all protein types
and is also absorbed at a very rapid rate by the body.
