⭐ QUALITY MATTERS ⭐
Not only is it important to get protein in your body WITHIN 30 minutes of exercise, but the QUALITY of protein also matters!
➡️ It’s the LEUCINE content that matters most!
Because the amino acid profile of the protein is KEY. Whey is higher in the amino acid leucine. It takes 50g of soy protein to match the bioavailability of leucine of 25g of whey. High intensity exercise and postexercise recovery change the amino acid protein metabolism in your muscles, increasing the metabolism of leucine.
You can eat all kinds of protein, but if you aren’t maximizing your leucine intake, you are never going to get to that tipping point in the muscle to trigger the repair and regrowth.
➡️ That’s one of the reasons why I PRIORITIZE my postworkout shake! I have it IMMEDIATELY after my workout and run, even if it was a short workout and/or run.
➡️ My postworkout is CHOCOLATE, plant based and 100% natural! It uses fast-, intermediate-, and slow-release proteins, BCAAs (leucine, isoleucine, and valine), a small amount of carbohydrates, and a powerful pomegranate extract that work together to:
✅ Speed muscle recovery
✅ Combat exercise-induced muscle soreness
✅ Promote lean-muscle synthesis
✅ Improve muscle strength recovery
It fuels my body PROPERLY and gets me protein, especially leucine, FAST! I’m RARELY sore which allows me to push hard day after day, and it has helped me tone and build significant lean muscle over the last 1.5 years!
Seriously, it is a GAME CHANGER! As runners, food should be PART of our training and it makes all the difference in your training, performance, and recovery!
