Why is protein so important?
The international studies noted above found that, “athletes consuming daily protein intakes above 2.0 g/kg/d which included protein intakes from both diet and supplements, a 22% and 42% increase in strength was noted in both the squat and bench press exercises during off-season conditioning in college football players compared to athletes that consumed only the recommended levels (1.6–1.8 g/kg/d) for strength/power athletes. (emphasis added).
Note: 1kg =1 lb.
“What would your performance look like with 22-42% more strength? Most male athletes don't realize how protein deficient their diet is.
