Default Protein intake ???

Hi,

Just a quick question....

Is it okay to eat the same amount of protein on a day off from training as you would on a training day ?

cheers, Duncan

Yes, ideally aim for 1gm per 1lb of bodyweight.

if you want to gain lean muscle you need over 250g protein in my opinion, and then that increases depending on your direction o goals within your workouts

i try and shove 300g of protein down my neck and maybee 350-400 on training days.

its also good to have one day of pure protein intake a month, to kick start your body into shape, but dont do it much more as it will have a negative effect on muscle growth

let me know how you get on mate!



remember if it doesnt hurt, make u sweat and thik i cant lift this, then your not doing it rigth! lol

I take on about 300g of protien a day, and just under 100g of carbs.

Trying to cut as i have "some" extra weight i need shifting....

I do lower it a little on weekends, but i train 4 to 5 days a week so mainly on chicken, eggs and shakes....

Just try and stay off the red, steaky meat. I know how tempting it is but it's not that great for you.
