How Much Protein Should You Consume Post-Workout?


What is up you guys? Courtney King here
with BPI sports and Muscle & Strength today I’m gonna be talking to you guys
about protein and how much protein you should consume post-workout. So, what is
your goal? If your goal is to put on size put on more muscle and strength you
probably want to consume more protein than the typical person. How much lean
body mass do you carry? The more lean body mass you have the more protein you
will need. What type of training did you do? A whole body workout will require
more protein than a split workout. How much protein did you have today? If
it’s 4:00 p.m. and you haven’t eaten anything high in protein for hours you
may want to consider consuming closer to the higher end of the spectrum. How much
protein is optimal? Those who do split based workouts and have less than 150
pounds of lean body mass can consume anywhere between 20 to 40 grams of
protein. Those who do split based routines and
have more than 150 pounds of lean body mass should consume 40 grams of protein.
Those who perform full body workouts and have 100 to 150 pounds of lean mass can
consume 40 grams of protein post-workout. And finally those who perform full body
workouts and have more than 150 pounds of lean body mass can consume 40 to 50
grams of protein post-workout. So you guys, I hope that gave you all a better
understanding on how much protein you should be consuming post-workout.
