Protein Intake: AJ & WarbirdWS6
- 01-15-2012, 11:21 AM
Not sure if I'll be able to duplicate the legacy with the Milas RecoverPro thread, but that's not my intention I just want to hear some general consensus.
Well know the more protein the better...
What's over kill and quad enough?
Me personally I think your bodyweight is enough, maybe shotgun a bit and add another 20g on top of your bodyweight.
So for instance I'm 190 and I usually stay between 190-250g a day. I drink amino acids but I don't count that toward my intake.
Warbird I think is taking in around 300+, nothing is wrong with that but is that really needed? If you're hungry why not but I'm trying to save you some $$
So from beginner to pro start to finish, what's your guys take on Protein intake?
Who's right me or my good ole buddy Warbird?
I won't even begin to discuss carbs

lol...........j/k. Believe me, 2 months at double BW in protein is enough for me. I won't do it again for a while. Will go back to BW plus a bit more plus the BCAA/Leucine. Hardest part of this recent stack is not tolerating the supps, or working out, or anything like that....it's eating/drinking all that fuqin protein....and you got the wrong title.....should have said ......."ALWAYS listen to WARBIRDWS6 about protein intake" LMFAO.....

I stick between 1.25g-1.5g/lb while also taking BCAA pre-training and hydrolyzed casein intra/post-training. Most of my calories come from fat, which is about 45-50% of total calories with protein ~30% and carbs ~20%. In the end, people get way too hung up on protein consumption. Even Soviet studies on Olympic athletes show that you don't even need 1g/lb for optimal recovery and getting in sufficient calories for your workload is the most important thing.

Just to add, the 1g/lb should be on lean body mass not total weight.

Agreed that's why 1g for every pound works.Originally Posted by fadi
