PRLog - Oct. 6, 2010 - NORWICH, U.K. -- There has been some recent publicity about the use of ‘energy’ drinks by gym-goers suggesting that these could be a waste of money. But leading sports nutrition specialist, Kerry Kayes of CNP Professional, warns not to confuse ‘energy’ drinks with other sports supplements such as protein drinks that are a valuable part of the athletes’ armoury.

“Rather than concentrating on energy drinks gym-goers should be thinking about protein drinks for muscle power so they can enjoy their workout without injury,” explains Kayes. “Too often people set off to the gym without thinking about the pounding they will be giving their muscles. It’s easy to do lasting damage to ill-prepared muscles with a couple of heavy workouts at the gym.”
When people exercise they actually break down muscle tissue. The muscles then use protein in order to repair themselves, recover and strengthen. Protein is the building block of the human body and is essential for maintaining healthy muscles. Gym goers, whether they are professional or amateur athletes, need to protect their muscles by boosting their protein intake on a regular basis.
“The regular use of protein supplements will protect and strengthen muscle tissue,” says Kayes. “The ultimate outcome will be improved performance, better recovery times and an increased enjoyment in your chosen form of exercise.”
Supplements suggested by Kayes for the gym-goer include CNP’s ProMR and Pro MS low calorie, high protein meal replacements and ProPeptide, a high protein drink.
