"Strength and wieght trainers do not need to consume extra protien to achieve good results".
A silly statement right?
Apparently not. I am in my second year of a degree in exersise science and the above statement is the one i have been given to discuss for a presentation which i have to give to my lecturers and fellow students as part of my assessment for this year.
As a bodybuilder i belive that extra protien is needed to achieve good results and i also belive that it is one of the most important factors to acieving muscle growth. But apparetly there are studys that suggest otherwise (i cant say ive ever seen any - but perhaps as a bodybuilder, ive been looking in all the wrong places).
I have to give the arguments from both sides and i was wondering if any of you guys know of any studys or articles which i could use for my research which could shed some light on either side of the argument. Also it would be interesting to hear your'e personal opinions.
I think the answer is obvious, but this is the statement i have to disscuss so im going to do it as best i can. Any imput, however small is most apprieciated. Thanks guys.
i will be sure to post any interesting reasearch findings in this forum as i go along.
