Build Your Muscles

Whey protein can help to make weight training more effective by making muscles grow bigger, according to a study by Canadian and British researchers, published in the Journal of Nutrition. In comparing muscle responses to various exercises, the study found that two factors work synergistically to produce maximum muscle growth: Resistance or weight training until a muscle is fatigued. The load can be heavy or light-the key is to reach the point of fatigue. Consuming whey protein (15 to 30 grams) immediately after exercise will increase muscle growth and speed recovery.
