#1 - How much protein do we need?
On this Episode of the Musashi R&D Sessions Podcast, the guys discuss one of the more prevalent questions regarding training and nutrition – How much protein do we need? Ross and Dhiren dive into the different types of proteins, the suggested amount for various types of athletes, and the timing of protein consumption, among many other questions. The guys also recap the latest news in sports, including the events of UFC 248, the NRL’s most recent ad campaign, and the global effect of COVID-19 on professional sports competitions. We also touch on the Women’s T20 attendance record, Chinese swimmer Sun Yang’s doping scandal, and Musashi ambassador Rob Whittaker announcing his next fight against Darren Till in Dublin, scheduled for August 2020. We wrap up with a listener question regarding the trade-off between cardio and muscle-building exercise, and the guys try to guess the origin of a famous quote picked by Hal the Intern. Dhiren applies the philosophy of Miyamoto Musashi to the topic using the quote: You must understand that there is more than one path to the top of the mountain.
