View Full Version : protien ques.

11-18-2003, 05:27 PM
I screwed up my shoulder playing tackle football sunday (im an idiot, i know!). so i'm taking the week off from lifting (needed to anyway, its been a while). the question is should i still eat 1 gram protien/pound of body weight if im not lifting and taking the week off?

thanks, JB

Yes. It'll be just as important in helping maintain muscle as it would building it. (Although one week off normally isn't too stressful and might even be helpful for more than just giving the shoulder time to heal.)

Eating 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight is just as important whether cutting, maintaining, or bulking.

yup :D but while cutting i tend to get 1.2g/lb of BW, since im taking les carbo's and i believe carbo's are protein sparing, so i increase protein a lil bit.. bulking i set it to 1g/lb BW tho.
