MUS­CLE F OOD

Cycling Plus - - YOUR BEST YEAR EVER -

The big fear with re­sis­tance train­ing is that you will build mus­cle and add weight, but Dana­her has a ba­sic plan for pow­er­ing up with­out bulk­ing up. “To in­crease strength with re­sis­tance train­ing you need to pro­vide the mus­cles with pro­tein foods taken in in­ter­vals spread through­out the day. For an 80kg male, this would trans­late to four por­tions of good-qual­ity pro­tein, like a chicken breast, a tin of tuna, a high pro­tein yo­gurt or a whey pro­tein shake made with milk.”

Pro­tein is vi­tal for build­ing and re­pair­ing mus­cles
