100% whey golg
Hello to all.
I am 22 years old, I measure 179 for 67 kg and I started weight training to draw myself a little more, and obviously gain a little weight.
I have established a program that seems coherent to me in relation to what I can do, namely: Full Body 2 to 3 sessions per week, without too much effort (1 hour, cardio included).
Here I am ectomorph (but you guessed it
), and I am looking for a food supplement that matches my body type and the training I am doing. I mainly want to gain muscle and little fat. By educating myself on the right and the left, I understood that 100% Whey gold could be adapted for my type of build. What do you think? What is the difference with a gainer (I understood that we took more fat with it, and that the training had to be more intensive).
Here I leave it to you, because in general, on this forum I had only good advice
Any help, advice please?
However, it’s not hard to find
Whey protein can help you gain muscle mass, just like the weight gainer.
It is enough to know how to use these two products, each having a utility according to the cases and the people.
When gaining muscle mass, most people go for a weight gainer, while sometimes whey is a much better ally to facilitate your muscle gain.
The weight gainer is not always the best solution :
– The weight gainer is a good solution for those looking to gain muscle mass and are unable to gain weight. In this case, it is because their caloric intake is too low, the sheather can then help them easily increase their caloric intake as part of their mass gain diet. It will therefore facilitate weight gain by making it possible to make one or more additional meals quickly and easily.
– In return, the calories provided by the gainer are not always of the best quality. They can sometimes contain a large part of lipids, but especially many fast sugars. If the gainer is used incorrectly, and these fast sugars are not supplied around training, the risk of gaining fat becomes very high.
We must therefore be careful, a weight gainer is not always the best solution. It is especially so if you are low on calories. It all depends on the situation and the quality of the weight gainer used.
Whey and muscle mass
If you are not in the 1st case (very difficult to gain weight because of a lack of calories), you are therefore more interested in taking whey protein during mass gain (and after ), and not the weight gainer.
Preferably used just before and after your weight training session, whey will allow you to facilitate muscle recovery and quickly stop the catabolism due to training. The recovery will be much faster, which has an influence on muscle growth.
If necessary, to increase your protein intake during the day, you can also use whey protein (coupled with casein if possible). The advantage is that you will be able to increase your protein intake, while limiting calorie intake, and especially without unnecessary sugars.
A thousand thanks for your very well constructed answer.
With my 2-3 workouts per week, is it wise to take a weight gainer?
I tend not to gain weight at all regardless of my diet, I gain muscle faster than fat (I am very lean by nature).
If I may, one or the other, for me, it’s the same thing: in other words, nonsense!
Food supplements are unnecessary except in the case of very specific pathologies. You should know that there are many studies which show that the use of a food supplement (vitamin or mineral) has as much effect as a placebo, while an appropriate diet has statistically proven positive effects.
A very simple basic principle to explain this and which also works for your proteins: the components of a food are much better assimilated when they are swallowed during the consumption of the food than when they are consumed in the form of isolate, for example, if you take vitamin C, your body will absorb it less than if you eat a fruit rich in vitamin C. On the other hand, there is a complementarity between the different components of a food that makes efficiency of each of them more important.
To summarize, you buy your proteins a fortune, a large part of what you consume will not be assimilated, so there is no point in the direction of the stool, what you have assimilated will be less effective and moreover largely above your real ones. protein needs, and since the body does not store protein, the urine goes. So basically you throw your money not out the window but at the puppy and on top of that you flush the toilet! Not to mention that overconsumption of protein leads to kidney deficiencies.
In fact, you could get the same positive results, without the negative effects, with a diet appropriate to your desire to gain muscle.
He wanted to know the difference
I simply took back a document explaining what whey is and a gainer …
I did not say, in any part of my answer, that I was advocating, to take this kind of thing
If you eat healthy, balanced and suitable for sport, no need for that
Indeed, I had noted your impartiality, it is heaventouch that I aimed with my post. I wanted to inform him about the risks of this kind of practice.
