Abstract

Muscular Hypertrophy is often thought of together with protein intake. Protein plays a vital role in hypertrophy. However, due to the amount of false information about how protein should be consumed to build muscle mass, many people are unaware of how protein should be consumed to stimulate protein synthesis. Protein consumption allows for an individual's body to go through protein synthesis which increases muscle mass. Therefore, protein intake should be much higher than the recommended value for building muscle mass. The numbers estimated have shown that 20-40 grams of protein contribute to the greatest increase in muscular hypertrophy. The specific time for consuming protein can contribute to a greater increase in hypertrophy. Studies have estimated that consuming protein in the morning and directly after workout results in an increase in muscular hypertrophy. This article will go through the specific findings for how protein drives hypertrophy, the recommended amount of protein and the specific time to consume protein for hypertrophy. Individuals trying to maximize muscular hypertrophy can gain an understanding of the role protein plays in muscular hypertrophy. This includes bodybuilders, people new to exercise, or anyone trying to build muscular hypertrophy.
