In this video, Guest Blogger, Hannah Giangaspro, Exercise Science and Nutrition Intern explains the three ingredients that make the perfect protein shake.
We’ve all seen those big dudes at the gym walking around like the Incredible Hulk, poking their chests out, and staring at themselves in the mirror. I can’t help but acknowledge that there must be something that they are doing right. I mean, those muscles don’t just come from nothing!
The next time you go to the gym, take a look at all those well-built people in there. You will notice that 90% of them have something in common: they bring one key piece of equipment from home. “What might this magical tool be?” you ask. I’ll give you a hint; it isn’t used until after the last grueling rep of your workout. Have you guessed it yet? It’s a protein shake.
Protein Shake 101

Watch this video to learn why and to figure out what three simple ingredients you should be putting in your protein shake!
