    Garage Gym Athlete Podcast: The Ultimate Guide to Protein Intake
    In this episode of the Garage Gym Athlete podcast, we dive deep into the world of protein consumption, particularly focusing on the optimal amount you need in each meal to maximize muscle recovery and growth. We'll debunk the myths with a blend of science and real-world stories, starting with the eye-opening journey of a professional athlete's encounter with lactic acid and how staying informed can save you from falling for outdated "bro science."
    Our main discussion revolves around the groundbreaking BASICS study conducted in 2023, involving 36 young, active men. This research challenges the long-held belief about the upper limit of protein synthesis post-exercise, revealing that our bodies can utilize much more protein than previously thought. With a detailed comparison between ingesting 25g and 100g of protein after working out, the study utilized a sophisticated quadruple isotope tracer method to track muscle and whole-body protein synthesis over 12 hours.
    Understanding the critical roles of Muscle Protein Synthesis (MPS) and Muscle Protein Breakdown (MPB) sets the stage for our discussion. These processes are essential for muscle maintenance, growth, and recovery, with MPS needing to outpace MPB to achieve muscle gains. The episode breaks down how a higher intake of protein—up to 100g—can significantly boost MPS rates, ensuring muscle growth and maintenance.
    We'll provide a practical takeaway for athletes and gym enthusiasts: aim for 1g of protein per pound of lean body mass daily. For instance, if you weigh 200lb with 15% body fat, your target is 170g of protein, spread out in meals as you prefer.
    Tune in to this episode for an insightful and practical guide on protein intake, backed by the latest science, to help you make the most of your recovery and muscle growth efforts as a garage gym athlete.

Binge listener

I found this podcast while looking for reviews of the Fiber Fueled book and have been binge listening ever since. I love how they breakdown studies and topics, I feel like I’m learning so much. I’m also a big fan of the shorter episodes you can listen too while cooling down at the gym, and even though I haven’t tried a ‘meet yourself Saturday’ workout yet I really love the idea. I bought & read Killing Comfort too & it’s helped me a lot to reprioritize things & set goals. I’m so happy I stumbled across the pod! Thanks guys! 👊🤙
