In this video we will talk about whether you should or if it is necessary to take protein for your workouts, Vamos! I get this question a lot from people who want to start training or that they are already training. If they need
to drink protein or if I drink protein for my workouts. First, you have to understand
that a lot of foods contain protein and supplementation would be necessary only
if your body is missing this substance. The producers of proteins exaggerate the need of protein for the body saying that you need a gram and half or two grams for each kilo of their body weight to increase muscle mass. Actually these numbers are very inflated
and they are created specifically to create the protein market and for you to think that it is something necessary to be able to grow mass Actually, the person who is starting to
train or who is training normally will not need supplementation
of protein to grow and increase its muscle mass. A regular person gets from their daily diet is generally enough to to be able to recover their muscles and be able to build more muscle. For example a protein shake Will contain twenty, thirty, forty
grams of protein and it’s pretty much the same than in a piece of chicken breast. So this
protein supplementation is not something out of this world, it’s something that you can really
get from a regular meal. Commercial Proteins are very heavy to digest
and they also have a lot of different things added, so consuming this you really
you do not know what are you putting into your body and you are actually also consuming something
that really is not so necessary for your training. In fact, a new study that showed that almost in all known brands of proteins, they
contain very high levels of heavy metals Such as arsenic, cadmium – which are
very toxic metals for your body and thus consuming something that you think will benefit you will result
doing you a lot more damage than good. It is a little different when you
you train in a very heavy way practically every day of the week, let’s say two three
hours or more in each training. So for your muscles to recover, you would need
some additional sources of protein because only with your food you can not receive
enough. That way your muscles could enter in a catabolic process when they are not growing
if you are not eating enough your muscle mass will go down and not increase. But in this
case what I would recommend is amino acids and it is what I am currently consuming.
When your body receives a protein molecule, it has to work it in order to produce amino acids.
So by consuming amino acids directly you omit all the process you have to do
your body to dissolve the protein and justly in this there is a big difference because practically
all commercial proteins are made out of animal milk. Taking a protein shake is as if your were drinking a lot of concentrated animal milk, but our digestive system really is not designed to process such large quantities and it’s really too heavy for your intestines
and that’s why people who take protein you can see that your stomach is usually
pretty inflated. The amino acids that I take are made out of meat, they are called Carnivor
and again, it’s not a requirement but if you consider that you train quite heavy
and if you want to give your body what is necessary to be able to recover and to be able to build
new muscle is something that will help you. Other than amino acids in fixing your damaged tissues
and also help build the new muscle, It will also help you to last a little longer in your
training. When you are training you are damaging the tissues of your muscles and having
these necessary blocks in your blood – your body can begin to fix the tissues. this way the point of fatigue is delayed a little when your muscles can no longer contract.
But again – if you’re a beginner or if you train two three times a week in a non-heavy way neither protein nor amino acids will make you see the difference. Being a beginner
you’re just going to worry your head with things that really are not that important.
It is better that you focus on your workouts and with time you will reach a level that you feel
that your recovery could be a little more efficient, a little faster – so you already can seek for supplementation. Supplementation is necessary only to compensate for what
lack in your diet and for most people – they receive everything in their diet.
what is necessary to be able to recover well and to be able to grow the muscle. If you have not yet
