Virtuoos protein supplements are made especially for athletes. Proteins help muscle recovery after physical exercise and support muscle growth. The effect that proteins have on your body depends on the type of training you do. If you participate in a lot of endurance sport, you won’t suddenly build a lot of extra muscle mass. Sufficient proteins ensure optimum muscle recovery and enhance the effects of your endurance training. Protein supplements are certainly also useful for endurance athletes. For bodybuilders, protein supplements help build muscle mass.

Proteins for athletes

As an athlete, your protein needs are higher than those of non-athletes. It is recommended that endurance athletes consume 1.4 – 1.6 g protein per kg body weight per day. It is recommended that bodybuilders consume 1.6 g – 2.0 g protein per kg body weight per day. Protein needs can be higher if the goal is to build optimal muscle mass or if you have a negative energy balance (weight loss). Consuming around 0.3 g protein per kg body weight every three to four hours provides an optimal spread over the day.
