    Default Recommended dosage for whey and protein

    Hi Loh, would appreciate if you could let me know about the recommended dosage of whey and protein, as I afraid that if I overdose, I would have built up undesired muscle mass, become bigger and eventually affecting my badminton performance, which agility and flexibility are crucial.

    Thank you in advance.

    Yes that is myself and my husband (Also a world champion powerlifter). Both strength athletes, although I am training for a different sport at the moment and have been involved in many sports in my career. Please note weightlifting, powerlifting and bodybuilding are all very different sports. In the same light it is like calling badminton - tennis!!

    Whey and creatine are NOT just for strength athletes. The benefits of the two have been proven, study after study, to provide performance enhancement for nearly every single sport. Creatine as I have said in previous posts is the most widely used sports supplement WHY?? BECAUSE IT REALLY WORKS! It is not just for strength gains - please refer to previous posts for explanation.

    Strength sports give a fantastic insight into how the body responds to certain activities. Depending on the competition/event depicts how you alter your training and nutrition, which is why many successful strength athletes go into the world of training and nutrition advising other sports how to improve their performances.

    To answer your question regarding weightlifters and bodybuilders, it is very rare for either of the two (baring in mind the two are very different) to just stop training. If bodybuilders wanted to decrease their muscle mass, they would change their nutrition and training to have the desired effect on their body. It also depends on the actual person as to what he/she decides to do. As I have said before, it is the goal that is very important.

    Any athlete, including badminton players, that stops training will indefinately loose muscle mass, strength and skills. This DOES NOT mean they will look saggy! It is a combination of diet AND training alteration, and being aware of your bodies changes.

    Hope this answers your question

    I would strongly advise against taking any creatine supplement. The body makes its own creatine in the liver, pancreas, and kidneys from foods, mainly from protein foods like meat and fish. Taking protein or creatine supplements in excess result in too much chemical wastes for your kidneys to handle.
    This can cause kidney damage.
    If you take protein and creatine supplements you must know what you are doing. Always periodically check your kidney function with lab tests. A very rough guide is to look at your urine and see if there are bubbles or foam that do not disappear after a minute or so.

    I strongly prefer natural nutrition always. I think my game has remarkably improved ever since I started including Chia seeds in my diet. You can be sure of getting just the adequate supply (O-3) of nutrients without any apprehension of being bulky or side effects on kidneys etc. They just need to be soaked in water before consuming. I travel a lot. So, If in case these are not available at a place, I rely on gel made up of Chia seeds.

    There are no researches whatsoever pointing to creatine causing kidney damage.
