Recovery Method – Whey Protein

Recovery Method – Whey Protein

Protein is a primary component of the human body and its functions. Your hair and nails are composed of protein, it’s the foundation of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood and it helps build and repair tissue. Unlike fat our body doesn’t store protein, therefore, we must replenish it to keep our body running like a well-oiled machine. Whey protein is a supplement that can be used to help restock our protein reserves.    

If you’re not familiar, whey protein is a complete protein source, meaning it contains the 9 essential amino acids necessary in our diet.  Whey protein is commonly thrown around as a needed supplement to acquire the “gains” desired, but it also aids in the recovery process.

Soreness and pains after an intense workout are your body’s response to the micro-tears in the muscle fibers which cause inflammation and stimulate the repair response. Branch chain amino acids (BCAA) found in whey protein help your body build and repair muscle tissues. The BCAA, Leucine, elevates muscle protein systems and decreases the breakdown of muscles after a workout. 

Athletes typically use whey protein in their post-workout smoothie. A smoothie containing whey protein and complex carbs are the best combination for recovery. The whey protein provides the amino acids required for recovery and helps prevent muscle loss. The carbs boost your energy supply because building muscle requires energy and provides the essential nutrients your body craves after burning all those calories. 

Here’s an example of a protein-packed recovery smoothie:


  • 1 cup of 2% milk
  • 6 ounces of Greek yogurt (plain or flavored)
  • 1 scoop of MPact vanilla whey protein powder
  • 8 fresh or frozen whole strawberries
  • 1 whole banana
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 1 handful of ice

Blend and enjoy!

Consuming whey protein after a workout will not only help you recover faster, but it will also help you lose fat and preserve the lean muscle mass. While a smoothie is the most utilized way to consume whey protein, the supplement comes in many different flavors and can be added to any of your favorite baked goods like pancakes, cookies, or muffins, and after a hard workout will give you the same recovery benefits of a post-workout smoothie.
