How Much Protein Per Day For Bodybuilding

The experts on bodybuilding seem to all agree with the research that shows that the best overall protein quantity to take on a daily basis is one gram of protein per pound of bodyweight. But farther study on this reveals that it is also the quality of the protein you are getting that can make a difference.

Protein is without a doubt the most important macronutrient that you can take in on a daily basis when bodybuilding. It gets hydrolyzed or broken down into its different amino acids when digested. These amino acids are then released into your bloodstream where they can get taken up by the muscle cells.

This needs to happen before any protein synthesis can occur which will happen in a linear fashion that is directly proportional to the plasma amino acid concentrations that you have until the plasma concentrations of amino acids are about twice that of the normal plasma concentrations.

Research done on the specific amount of protein needed for different body-types known as somatotypes reveals some interesting details about daily protein intake. The bottom line is that different somatotypes will invariably require different amounts of protein in order to increase muscle gain on a permanent basis.

For example if you are a natural mesomorph who gains muscle quite easily then taking in around 1.2g/lb to 1.3g/lb would be required if trying to lose fat at the same time. All Ectomorphs should increase their protein intake to 1.4g/lb to 1.6g/lb.

Lastly if you are a natural Endomorph then you should take in around 1.4g/lb to 1.5g/lb of bodyweight. This protein will be maximally utilized and maintain or increase the lean body mass that you have while you manage to lose fat at the same time.

It is important to note that if you are on a low carbohydrate diet to lose fat your energy when you work out will be a lot less when training on protein only. It is a long a tiring process to convert your protein into usable glucose in the muscles and will make you feel lazy with not enough energy for your intense workout.
