We all know how difficult it is to get the right amount of protein in our bodies when weight training. I remember when I first started weight training, I spent a considerable amount of energy trying to get my daily requirements the ‘natural’ way. That’s a good attitude to have but the reality is we don’t have the time and frankly the money to continue down that path long term. That’s why most people including myself turn to protein supplements, taken with a well balanced diet can be one of the best ways to get the results your need.
I’ve compiled some of the most popular protein supplements below with their corresponding prices and nutritional makeup. I’ve chosen to display the largest tubs or packets which means better value for money. If your buying for the first time though it would be a good idea to buy the smaller amounts.
