LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire -04/11/12)- Whether you're training to become a personal trainer or you hit the gym regularly as part of a healthy and active lifestyle it's likely you'll be upping your protein content.
After a heavy workout most of us use protein shakes as these are a great way to get the protein you need while avoiding potential fat intake from meat.
Let the Training Room guide you through the different options out there for you.
Soy protein coming in powder form is virtually fat free, as well as being low in cholesterol and free from lactose. It's also high in powerful antioxidants.
Egg protein is another powder than can make good post workout shakes. Containing all the amino and fatty acids for optimum growth and maintenance of active tissue, a shake like this could well become a vital part of your workout regime.
Whey protein powder can potentially repair and re-build muscle faster than the other powders available to you. It doesn't just come in powder form either as you can also get it in bar or fruit punch shot.
It's important to think about the timing of your protein shake. Try and have it as soon as you can after your workout.
Many of us have to train in our spare time around our work commitments. If this applies to you try and ensure your protein intake doesn't come too late at night as this can result in indigestion as well as disrupted sleep patterns. Sleep is a vital part of your workout regime so you wouldn't want to do anything to interrupt it.
