The best protein powder for muscle gain

To gain weight and build muscle your body needs an excess of energy. In other words, you need to consume more calories than you burn each day. Regardless of how hard you train, if you are not consuming significant protein and calories daily, your muscle growth will be limited. Protein is particularly important for muscle growth; it provides the building blocks for muscle repair and redevelopment. Quality protein can be found in foods such as lean meat, fish, eggs, dairy and plant-based protein sources. Supplementing the diet with whey protein powder post-training and between main mealtimes, is highly recommended by athletes and Sports Nutritionists. Whey protein has a naturally high protein content and an excellent amino acid profile. It is easily digestible and quickly absorbed by the body, making it a popular choice for post-workout recovery and muscle growth. To support your muscle-building journey, Gwen Gothard – Senior Sports Nutritionist suggest you use Musashi Bulk Extreme.

Musashi Bulk Extreme contains higher protein, higher carbohydrates, and higher calories, when compared to regular protein powders. Bulk Extreme is perfect for those with fast metabolisms or thin builds. The unique inclusion of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) makes Musashi Bulk Extreme stand out from the crowd. MCT fats are rapidly absorbed by the body and quickly convert into energy. MCT fats are also stored slightly differently to other fats and for this reason they increase overall calorie intake without increasing body fat. Musashi Bulk Extreme was originally designed for one of the top sailing teams competing in the America’s Cup. It was determined that the sailors were not obtaining an adequate calorie intake to sustain their extremely high energy needs during training and competition. By including Musashi Bulk Extreme as part of their diet, they were able to boost overall calories and sustain optimal performance. The collaboration with the team led to the creation of Musashi Bulk Extreme. Musashi Bulk Extreme is now used by thousands of athletes each day across an array of sports and exercises to fuel muscles, assist with healthy weight gain and ultimately achieve muscle gain. A consistent training program, a well-balanced diet and the right supplementation can put you on the right path to achieve the goals you desire.
