Protein is without a doubt, the most important nutrient for packing slabs of lean muscle mass onto your body. You may lift weights until you turn purple or consume all the carbohydrates, fats, and other micro-nutrient in the world, but if you fail to feed your body with adequate amount of protein, you can forget about having a lean muscular physique. High protein consumption is a must for serious mass development and also for repairing muscle tissue damaged after an intense iron blasting workout.
How much protein must one consume daily to build muscle successfully? For proven results, the general rule of thumb should be approximately 1 to 1.5 grams of protein per pound of body weight. So if you weigh 150 pounds you should strive to consume about 150 grams to 225 grams of protein per day. Now how does one consume a large amount of protein on a daily basis? No worries as I’ve compiled a list of 7 high protein foods that can help you build muscle in record time.

5️⃣ Red Meat
WOW What a way to finish the 5th low day on the bounce than with a monster back session with the man mountain @matt_dohertyyy this guy seriously pushes me! Finishing a back workout and failing on 220kg deadlift... that's what we mean by putting in the work!
I am SO ready for tomorrow's refeed 😈
Flat as a pancake and soft in places so I know it's time to fill back up 👊🏻💪🏻
I've had some questions about "spot training" from various people. The honest truth is that it requires the individual to lose overall body weight in order to obtain the desired look in a specific area. This picture shows my current cut over 11 weeks, 216 vs 198 a few % lower in body fat. Some areas are smaller even though they were not directly trained, like love handles for example. It's also worth realizing males and females hold fat in different places. Men, typically their "tire" lower stomach area. Women, typically their arms/upper body. Just a few examples. This could also change depending on individual genetics as well.

Aftermath. One hour and forty minute workout. Chest and back. Absolutely killed it. That sweatshirt is covered in sweat. Only the bottom by the pockets is dry. Three people came and went, arriving after I started & left before I finished. Barbell bench press flat, then incline, and decline. Finished with some flyes. Then some one arm rows, deadlifts, one arm lat pulldowns, and finished on some cable rope rows. It was a good day back after a day of rest.
