High Quality Protein Source — Whey Protein Isolate

Hammer Whey

Adequate protein is not a given, especially for endurance athletes. Endurance exercise cannibalizes muscle protein by 10% or even 15% (via gluconeogenesis), so providing your body with high quality protein after exercise is critical.

Personal experience

over the course of training for the 2011 Everest Challenge, I gained 10-12 pounds of muscle in my legs, with most of this gain coming in only 4-5 months later in the season, when I switched to using Hammer Whey protein isolate. Previously I had been lax in making sure I had high quality protein after a workout, and I attribute the muscle gain (in part) to the use of Hammer Whey.

How I use it

Hammer Whey mixes up super easily; I just take one scoop with 12 ounces of water about 30 minutes after my post-workout Recoverite.

For harder workout days, I add 1 to 1.5 scoops just before bed.

For days where I have no time to eat and have to rush somewhere after a workout, I take two scoops of Recoverite (170 calories) plus 2 scoops Hammer Whey (160 calories). This seems to satisfy me for 2+ hours even after a 2000 calorie workout.

Flavor: I prefer the vanilla flavor.
