Our tips for building muscle.
A sufficient supply of protein is essential for our health. They are the most important nutrients for our body. Proteins have several crucial roles in all the cells of the body and come in many forms. They are found absolutely everywhere, and we need them to enable various functions: muscle contractions, tissue structures, skin resistance and flexibility, transport of other substances such as vitamins and minerals.
For sportsmen and women with the objective of gaining muscle mass or achieving optimal recovery, proteins enable the repair of muscle tissue damaged during various physical exercises. It is this reconstruction mechanism that allows the muscle to grow progressively, provided that regular, intensive and adapted training is carried out, accompanied by a healthy diet rich in proteins.
It is therefore essential to pay particular attention to protein intake.
The protein bar is a logical solution. Quick, practical and rich in protein, it allows you to add a nutritionally recommended supplement to your daily diet. As a meal or snack, it replaces other bars that are often high in sugar and low in protein. The protein bar is an effective contribution to a normal diet, whether at 10am or 4pm, before or after training, or with meals in the case of meal bars. Feed.
Be careful, the simple indication of "protein bar" or "rich in proteins" that you find in the shops does not necessarily ensure the effectiveness of these bars. To avoid that it is only a simple treat, it will be necessary to choose it rigorously by concentrating on its composition and its contributions.
It is important to ensure that the protein in the bar chosen contributes to more than 20% of the energy intake of this bar. The low sugar content (-15%) is a real plus, to avoid gaining weight or fat mass, especially when the consumption of protein bars is regular. A high fiber content (> 6.5g) can help control glycemic peaks and ensure satiety with the help of protein. This will be the case with all protein bars Feed.
Depending on the time of consumption of a protein bar, the effects produced will not be the same and will allow different objectives to be reached:

The consumption of a protein bar will be perfect during a very long activity (>1h30) (e.g. long distance race - half marathon / triathlon / trail.) which requires a strong demand on the muscles. Protein bars, consumed in small bites progressively, will allow you to make up for energy losses, limit the degradation of muscle fibres and avoid the effects of fatigue.
After a physical effort (training or competition), protein intake is important to optimise the reconstruction of muscle fibres destroyed during the effort and thus maintain or increase muscle mass. Recovery will be quicker and will allow you to continue training more quickly.
