Why Protein is Essential to Athletes

Posted by Rivalus on Aug 6th 2020

Have you ever wondered why protein is essential to today’s top athletes? Protein (and protein powders) are an important building block in the formation of muscles and muscle recovery. In 2018, an analysis of 49 different studies determined that protein supplements significantly improve muscle size, strength and recovery in healthy, active adults that take part in resistance training.

Weightlifting, the most common resistance exercise, can cause muscle soreness and fatigue. To speed up recovery after a workout, athletes often use protein powder, like Rival Whey or Promasil, to help repair damaged muscle tissue.

Whey protein is one of the most popular types of protein powder among athletes. It mixes easily with water and contains all the amino acids that the body requires from food. If you’re looking for a great new protein, that comes in a variety of delicious flavors, check out the links below:
