Nutrition // 12WBT Staff

We all know that having protein after working out helps build lean muscle mass. This is super-important to keep your metabolism firing and reduce body fat.

The proteins found in dairy – whey and casein – are the most common proteins used in nutrition supplements designed for muscle gains, as they provide all the essential amino acids needed to build and maintain muscle mass.

Just 20g of high-quality protein after resistance exercise will kickstart lean muscle growth and repair.

So, after your next workout, take 200g of plain Greek yoghurt and use any of these DIY combinations, thanks to Legendairy.
