Protein Stack For Building Size

Protein Stack For Building Size Many aspects of physical performance can be improved through training. If you count building lean mass among your goals, a study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research suggests a protein stack you might want to include in your post-workout recovery program.

Thirty six experienced men in their early 30s lifted weights for 10 weeks splitting up muscle groups to train 4 days per week. Their controlled diet was supplemented with either 48 grams of carbohydrates per day, 40 grams of whey protein plus 8 grams of casein per day, or 40 grams of whey protein with 3 grams of BCAAs and 5 grams of glutamine daily. Although all groups experienced significant gains in one rep max, the whey/casein stack produced the biggest increases in muscle size.

True Strength Moment: A 'stack' is defined as 2 or more complementary ingredients that combine to produce better results than any component used by itself. If you're thinking about putting this whey/casein combination to the test, ON's Platinum Hydrobuilder takes the concept to another level by adding a full daily maintenance dose of micronized Creapure Creatine to 30 grams of hydrolyzed whey protein and micellar casein.
