How much protein is too much protein

Ever wondered if you could just consume the majority of your protein in one protein shake and call it a day? I mean chugging on a protein shake every 3-4 hours, just to make sure you get in the maximum amount of protein you need for the day, can be pretty exhausting and sometimes a task that cannot be accomplished.

This is an interesting topic because of the fact that a lot of us don’t have the luxury to eat that many meals throughout the day and require consuming large amounts of protein to either maintain our muscle mass or actually grow some.

I have taken the time to look over some research and provide the break down found in them, to help ease your mind on this matter.

How to calculate caloric intake

Nutrition is considered the MOST important aspect of fitness training. A lot of people who initially get into fitness training of any type, particularly those who are more focused on the bodybuilding component of it, fail to recognize the importance of nutrition. They focus mainly on what’s happening in the gym and neglect to develop a proper diet or to calculate the right amount of calories they are suppose to consume to get a particular goal they are seeking.

Myofibrillar Hypertrophy

In the community of weight lifters, there are two types; bodybuilders and power lifters. The latter group focuses more on strength gains and sometimes disregards aesthetics, or physical appearance for those gains. The former group is focused on sculpting the body, to that of a Greek god. For those who may be unaware on the physiological and biological components that are involved in each type of weight lifting, power lifters focus on a different aspect of the skeletal muscle, to gain those strength. The same goes for bodybuilders, who are focusing on another type of aspect of the muscle, when it comes to their training. Just lifting up a weight and putting it down, doesn’t train all of the muscles. It’s only part of the muscles that are being trained. So, doesn’t it make sense to incorporate or develop a weight training program, that targets all of the muscles for optimum and maximum gains? Continue reading the article to learn about myofibrillar hypertrophy and why it should be incorporated into your current weight training program.
