Space Out Your Protein

Did you know your body can only absorb up to 40 grams of protein at a time?

That means protein powders boasting 60 grams of whey protein per serving or meal plans that encourage 8 oz. of meat for dinner for a resistance trained athlete are not providing the full bang for their buck!

To build and maintain lean muscle, space your protein intake throughout the day and aim for about 15-25 grams per meal.
