Can whey protein shake work the same for physical fitness as weights?

Can whey protein shake work the same for physical fitness as weights?

Hmmmm. . .: Not unless you have really heavy cans of whey protein and lift them a lot. :-) I agree with dr. Henning that whey and other proteins can support your muscle growth while you're also doing a weight resistance program. But why does not have the same functions as weights. Lifting weights train your muscles; drinking whey supports their growth. Other forms of protein include pea and soy.

Is it a good idea to take whey protein isolate as a recovery drink after I do the insanity fitness program? And before bedtime?

Is it a good idea to take whey protein isolate as a recovery drink after I do the insanity fitness program? And before bedtime?

Maybe, but..: Insanity is a vigorous exercise program that engages all major & core muscle groups, stimulates the release of glycogen stores and the rapid and efficient uptake of oxygen to fuel activity. Recovery from the demands of such a program requires some protein and also a high GI food to promote growth and replenish glycogen. Adding some fruit or dextrose will do the trick!

What is better, chocolate milk or strawberry whey protein shake for afte workout?

Either: The whey protein shake likely has more protein, depending on how much is added. Base your decision on the nutrients and what you are looking for- which has more protein? Number of fat grams? Amount of simple sugars? Does the shake have added vitamins and minerals? What tastes the best? Both sound like reasonable recovery drinks.

Hi doc. Is goldstndrd whey protein suitable for people around 58 years old and high blood pressure issue whishes to start the light fitness exercise?

Dietary supplements: Age & blood pressure are immaterial to starting exercise regimen. Just do it! Great idea to start slow & low and gradually build up speed & strength/weight. Dietary supplements are not necessary for most adults in States although I can't speak to Pakistan etc. Certainly, there are no studies demonstrating any benefit from dietary supplements. When starting exercise program, don't need whey protein
