Consume Extra Protein During Periods of Intense Training

Consume Extra Protein During Periods of Intense Training
Many recent studies have shown that consuming protein before or after intense workouts stimulates protein synthesis, but few studies have examined the effects of dietary protein intake during prolonged training cycles.

Kevan Tipton and colleagues from the University of Birmingham in the U.K. showed that high-protein intake (3 grams per kilogram bodyweight) was superior to normal protein intake (1.5 g/kg) during intense training periods. They concluded that additional protein reduces symptoms of psychological distress in athletes performing intense training loads, and might reduce symptoms of overtraining.
