Alternative Options For Protein Intake During Vertical Jump Training
OK, this is a good question. This question is from babygurl10507 from YouTube. So her question was,
"I'm not allowed to use protein powder, is there anything else I could use?"

Well, the main reason we use protein powder is for the protein and you could also take an amino acid supplement but my guess whatever is prohibiting your protein powder intake is probably going to prohibit you from taking an amino acid as well. So if you can get that person to watch this video or watch my channel's we can talk about how protein powder is not scary and it's not necessarily a bad thing. I mean some of them have more sugar than others so that's something if you are diabetic, etc.

I mean protein powders are made of different substances, for example, it could be made from milk protein or egg protein, it's basically extracts from that so you can get protein into your body and if you have a perfect diet or have an opportunity to consume protein from natural foods you don't necessarily need a protein shake, but it is a very quick, easy, and safe way to get protein.

It is safe, it is not going to stunt your growth, and it is not going to hurt you. If you take an excess of protein you might just smell bad, you are just going to pass it. As far as proteins shake a day or a protein shake here and there during the day is not a bad thing, it is nothing to be scared of. So I don't blame parents, or whoever it might be, for being wary of anything that people want to sell you to put into your body.

But anyways let's get down to the answer of your question. You can, you need to learn to start reading labels so you can get the protein that you need. You should also realize that not all proteins are created equal, for example, you want to get a full protein and a full protein just means it has a full amino acid profile that your body can use to build muscle.

Meat is kind of the easiest way to get that and meats are going to have a full amino acid profile. So you can eat tuna out of the can, which is really an easy fast way to get protein, you can eat chicken, you can eat any type of meat. If you are going to get vegetable proteins from greens, that is pretty good too. A lot of things are automatically combined like wheat's and dairy, for example like in cereal, when you eat milk and grains together they combine to make full proteins. Beans and rice are the same type of thing.

So I would recommend that you just start reading labels and looking at how much protein, when you take most protein shakes you are going to have anywhere between 15-30 grams of protein, so instead of taking a protein shake eat a can or two of tuna and you are going to have that same protein intake. So the answer is to get your protein from natural foods and start to read labels and learn how to get your protein.

If you have questions on certain items, whether or not they are going to give you a full protein or anything like that just post them below and we will get to them. So hope that answers your question. Protein powder is not absolutely essential, however proper nutrition including protein IS essential. So I will talk to you soon. Bye
