Tip to get maximum muscularity
I was recently taken aback by a piece of advice given by multi-Mr. India J. Muniappan.
He told me that competitors who literally live on protein powders while getting ready for a show will not attain peak muscularity!
He explained three reasons, which, to my surprise, were endorsed by world champion trainers such as Charles Glass (‘Mr. Universe’) and Hany Rambod (FST training system founder).
1. It seems that the body has to spend a significant number of calories to break down solid food. If majority of your meals come in the form of powders, they will be absorbed very fast, thereby not giving your body a chance to expend more calories.
2. Solid food will be absorbed a bit slower than powders and hence you may not feel hungry to eat again for the next 2 to 2 ½ hours. This may not be the case with certain fast-acting protein powders. Eating too many meals, more than what your body needs, may be a stumbling block to getting ultra-ripped.
3. Certain supplements have some milk protein which may make your body hold water.
Should you avoid protein powders?
Certainly not…consume a fast-acting whey protein powder with some carbohydrates immediately after a workout. It should be followed by a high-protein solid meal after one hour. The rest of your meals should come only from solid food. Add plenty of amino acid tablets to your diet plan.
Try out this plan and see how your body responds.
