In brief: Depends
It all depends on the level of working out.
If you are trying to gain mass, you want more protein and calories in than going out - if trying to tone, you want high protein and less carb/calories. On average for someone your age and working out, id aim for 50-60g of protein (or more) per day.

The amount of supplemental protein intake is dependent on your diet, body size, general health, and work out regimen.
