How much protein, is enough protein?

The question many tend to ask me over and over again, is the simple one; how much protein is enough protein? There are basic ratios that assist in acquiring the right amount of protein in take, to build muscle mass but, there’s also goals that need to be looked at to assume how much protein is needed for a particular body type.

The Correct Lateral Raises

This entry is going to be short and sweet, and straight to the point. Many of us have been performing certain exercises, in ways that do not directly target the muscles we’re looking to train.
