Pumping Up? How to Pick Your Protein Supplement

Pumping Up? How to Pick Your Protein Supplement
Pumping Up? How to Pick Your Protein Supplement
: Main Image
Our protein supplement guide will help you excel on the court, in the gym, or on the road
If you take your workouts seriously, nutrition should be top of mind too. Protein is a great place to start, and focusing on getting the right types of protein, in the right amounts, and at the right times is key. Our protein supplement guide will help you meet your wellness goals, potentially improving your performance on the court, in the gym, or on the road.

What type?

Whey

Whey protein is quick to digest and provides all of the protein building blocks - the amino acids. Our bodies cannot make some amino acids, and whey is ideal for meeting essential amino acid needs. Whey also supplies branched-chain amino acids (BCAA), and some research supports that they aid muscle recovery after hard workouts.

Casein

Compared with whey, casein is slower to digest, and results in a lower, yet more prolonged rise in blood amino acid levels, which may provide a particular advantage for body builders. At least one study supports that casein outshines whey in terms of promoting strength and lean body mass gains in people following a structured weight-training plan.

Rice

Rice protein is less likely to create allergic reactions than other proteins, and it comes from a plant, making it appropriate for vegetarians. Another potential advantage is that rice protein contains a high proportion of arginine, an amino acid that can dilate blood vessels, possibly enhancing blood flow to muscles. Rice is not a "complete" protein however; it doesn't supply all of the essential amino acids. Some products combine rice protein with proteins from sources like soy or milk to make it complete.

Egg

Egg protein is ideal for people who are looking to build new muscle. It has a very high protein efficiency ratio (PER), which is one measure of how well our bodies can use any particular form of protein. The higher the PER, the more efficiently our bodies can use that protein when we eat it. Egg is off the charts in terms of PER. Egg protein also is a complete protein, and is a good source of essential and branched chain amino acids. Egg protein powder is made from egg whites, and comes in a convenient, pasteurized powder form.

Soy

Soy protein is a high-quality plant protein that provides all essential amino acids, making it a good option for vegetarians. For the body to best utilize soy protein, vegetarians should also eat grain or dairy within a few days. Soy protein comes in two basic forms: soy protein isolate and soy protein concentrate. Soy protein isolate is the most highly purified form, and has a minimum protein content of 90%. Soy protein concentrate contains more carbohydrates, and has a protein content of approximately 70%. Concentrates tend to cost a little less, but if you find soy protein concentrate doesn't agree with you, try isolate, which is easier for some people to digest.

How much?

With protein, as with many nutrients, more is not always better. According to Dr. Doug Paddon-Jones, Associate Professor at the University of Texas Medical Branch and Director of Exercise Studies, "30 grams of protein appears to stimulate maximum muscle synthesis. For athletes, each meal and snack is a chance to hit the 30 gram mark, giving your body several opportunities each day to maximize muscle growth and repair."

Another reason to spread protein evenly through the day is simple efficiency. "Given that your body won't use much beyond 30 grams of protein at a time, it doesn't make sense to load up with more than this," says Paddon-Jones.

When?

  • Breakfast-To support muscle building first thing in the morning, try trading traditional carb-heavy breakfast foods for more protein-rich options, such as a powder protein supplement mixed with milk and cereal.
  • If you're heading into a long strength-training session-Sipping a casein-based protein supplement prior to and during your workout will give muscles sustained access to amino acids. If taken in the evening, casein can provide a steady supply of amino acids while you're sleeping.
  • Immediately pre- or post-workout-Especially if your workout includes aerobic or circuit training, protein manufacturers recommend a whey protein-based liquid or powder supplement.

Comments about Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass - Chocolate:

first im going to start by saying i am not a gnc employee or a optimum nutrition employee i am a regular person who is trying to bulk up. i am only saying this because my post is going to sound unreal. when i started working out about 3 months ago i was 118 pounds at 5'10....yeah i know right! anyways i bought this product on top of adding a whole bunch of foods to my diet and tracking calories with intense workouts 5 days a week and i am now at 152 pounds solid which was my weigh in 2 weeks ago im not even sure where im at now. i stopped using the product because it stopped working after 2 and a half months which everyone can expect it to stop working at some point but what i can say is it works it deffinatly works if you want to gain weight this is the one i would suggest buying a creatine supp and adding it to it something unflavored because it lacks that but overall its a pretty good product i would say 8/10 only because i didnt like the taste that much!on and i would also suggest not taking a whole serving at once its super hard to mix the whole serving and if you do you will be chewing this weight gainer break it in half one scoop in the morning one scoop before bed and use 18 ounces of whole milk it makes it taste les nasty

      I take 1-2 servings daily, usually when i wake, after i workout or before bed. Works great. Gained around 12-15 lbs in 2 months. You will gain a slight amount of fat, but with workouts you start seeing the difference slowly in muscle tone and size.

      Comments about Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass - Chocolate:

      Started taking ON-Serious Mass as I wanted to put on 10-15 lbs and I find it hard enough to eat enough calories already. Along with a solid workout plan (5-6 days a week) and cutting some of the more intense cardio in my regime I've put on 10 lbs in less than a month (little over 3 weeks). Seems to work very well, tastes good if u mix it properly. The shovel used to scoop the powder is so large it doesn't fit in my shaker so I swapped it out for an old scoop from my ON Gold Standard protein bottle (4 scoops of smaller scoop = 1 shovel). Note I only do half the serving size it recommends.

            This is a great product! I workout 5-6 days a week and run as well and I am still gaining the mass that I want to. Before I weighed 212, and I've been talking this for 3 weeks and I am already at 218. The serving size is big (two shovels is one serving) but it tastes pretty good and you don't have to force it down. I usually one scoop right near the end of my workout/after and another 15 min after or a little later.

            I actually bought the 12 pound bag, but it's the same stuff. After one bag, I gained 13 pounds, I went from 125 to 138. The taste is weird, it starts out chocolatey and then gets more and more bitter the farther down the bag you go. But as for the effect, they are pretty good. I noticed a steady gaining and strength increase. There isn't any side effects or sick feeling unless you drink a whole serving with like 20 ounces of milk. This is great for adding lots of extra carbs and calories to your diet. Overall a good product.
