How-to: Build and maintain muscle

August 2, 2016

You’re across it: Protein is the ammunition you need for arming your body.

But getting enough high-quality protein and getting it when your muscles are most receptive to it (after a workout), is what separates the haves from the have nots.

Supplements come in handy, when there’s only so many poached chicken breasts and grilled salmon fillets you can stomach. If you’re looking to build and maintain muscle, these are your two best options. BYO, shaker.

Concentrate (Whey): The most affordable type of protein supplement. It’s usually about 80 percent protein, so it has more fat and carbs than the products which undergo an extra filtration step. Still with the same basic muscle-building benefits.

Isolate (WPI): Superior due to its increased protein concentration and therefore pricier, this powder is handy for those with food allergies and low-lactose and carb needs.
