What would be the recommended dose (in grams) of protein you would suggest for somebody that is trying to build muscle. I'm going to be a cop so I want to be intimidating lol, I don't know if there is a formula or whatever, if it helps I'm 5'10" and weigh 185, looking only for a slight weight gain, more interested in switching over my flubber for lean muscle.
And would supplements for lifting like whey protien be negative for me? Or do you think that would be enough to reduce meat consuption to 0? I also used to take creatine but read that it can have bad side effects on the liver, although it has many positive effects too, I'm debating wehtere to continue taking it.
based on genetics and being a male (helps in building muscle) If you were to clean up your diet that would show your muscle and then lift weights , males lift differnet them women Rage, I have a trainer i can tell you what I did my trainer had me get each muscle group accustomed to lifting lite weights high reps i could feel it but never strained i did this for 6 weeks then she switched me to a building stage which was enough weight to take me to failure never more than 2 sets per excersice and 8-10 reps never more than 3 times a week whole body each time i did that for 3 months , On the eating she said the vegan diet is superior so i wasn't sent to a nutritionist..i litereally had people coming up to me asking what i was doing also cardio 3 times a week...i now maintain it takes very little to do that i just switched back to my original routine...i would suggest the Ymca its cost effective and they give so much help trainer, nutritionist ect.....They'll even help you with the fiancing if you need it.....
