TFW Kansas City

Should I Take Whey Protein Before or After Workout? That is a question I get asked quite a bit. Technically speaking you should eat protein before and after a workout if your sticking to your diet. From a performance standpoint consuming protein before a workout isn't as crucial as it is after a workout. First lets discus the different types of protein out there as it can be confusing on what types to take. Here are 7 different types of protein to take into consideration. Types of proteins.

It's time to make some changes and continue to live a positive life and healthy life. Whats one of the top new year eve resolutions you hear way too often?

Learn How to Get in Shape in a Month! I've always been a pretty active guy my whole life playing every sport imaginable. Everything from track, 5Ks, football, baseball, basketball, soccer, swimming, cycling and now rugby. Every now and then injuries pop up and forcefully sat me out of competition... I wasn't fun to be around when I couldn't enjoy the one thing I love doing, competing. Injuries take time to heal, maybe its a few days, or a week, or months. In my eyes a day without training is a day wasted in my books, but injuries require rest/rehab in order to get back to 100%.
