Pro Tip: The Basics to Protein Supplementation @phathippienutrition
______________
Choosing a protein can be tough, there are so many out on the market! Here's a guide to help you choose the right one for you.

Whey Proteins: Most common!
Concentrate- The least processed form of whey. Contains anywhere from 30-85% protein. This form contains the most non protein properties with high amounts of lactose per gram. Basically it's the cheapest & crapiest form of whey. Don't drink this.
Isolate-This form begins as concentrate then is processed to filter out lactose increasing amount of protein per gram. Usually contains around 90% protein. Isolate is typically absorbed within 30-45 min after consumption.
Hydrolyzed- Is highly processed or "pre-digested", allowing extremely fast absorption to the body. This form typically breaks down within 10-15 minutes after consumption.
Casein- Slow absorbing protein, releasing over a period of 6-8 hours. This is a great bed time protein to stay anabolic af through the night.
Plant Alternatives: Good for people sensitive to lactose or someone following a plant based diet. They are easily digested and get the job done!
Vegan/Plant Based- The most common alternative proteins are Pea, Soy, and Brown Rice. The absorption rate is about the the same as isolate. Also they contain a full amino acid profile. Alternatives are just as effective in building muscle and aiding in recovery.
Fillers-WATCH OUT FOR CRAP!
Gums-Used to bulk up the protein and save $ for manufacturers.
Artificial Sweeteners-Chemicals that make your protein taste good but are slowly killing you.
Dextrin/Glucose- Think starch, think unnecessary ingredient.
Carrageenan-Added for mix-ability but is linked to ulcers and abdominal distress.
Simple ingredients are your best friend. My protein literally has 3 ingredients! Yes, I understand you like your cinnamon bun toaster strudel crap filled flavors but suck it up buttercup health trumps taste 10 of 10 times (that's a proven fact lol). Here's a list of my favorite brands: @musclefeast @nkdnutritioninc @earthfedmuscle
Happy Saturday fit fam! #protip

Okay I can't hold it in any longer. We are officially gym owners (@m3athletics)!!
This year has been crazy, full of trials, hardships, and tears. Through it all God has been faithful. We have been praying over, on, and in this building for 7+ months. Some people know, some don't, but this is our third attempt at starting our own place...tons of trial and error. The biggest lesson we've learned is we are NOT in control.
Life lesson: Gods timing is perfect. I'm beyond blessed to have my brother as my coach, best friend and now business partner. God is so good, giving us way more than we ever asked! #thankful
Update: πŸ”¨ Construction has officially begun and the equipment build out starts September 1st! We should be ready to rumble this October (@thefacilitysd)! Keep us in your prayers!
Sidebar: I wish someone told me this would be my career path like 9 years ago, I would've definitely dropped out of college. Haha πŸ˜‚ #lifepr

"If you're willing to endure the short term discomfort that stems from stepping outside your comfort zone and actually working like crazy for awhile, you'll get to where you want to go" -Frank Kern
______________
Get uncomfortable and reap the reward of growth! Stop trying to be safe and secure in your life decisions, security isn't real. Push yourself to get something you deserve. Stop getting distracted by drama, social media, friends, or whatever else and find what you are created to do. I'm so stoked on life right now, so many big things are in the works I can't wait to share with everyone soon. Keep grinding, keep focusing on your goals. Accept change and grow from it.
