Are you ready to make your kettlebell workouts and your recovery even better? Let's talk about a super important friend: Protein! 

Why Protein is Your Workout Buddy

When you get older, your body loves protein even more, especially when you're swinging those kettlebells.

  1. Muscle Magic: Protein is like a magic potion for your muscles. It helps fix them after a tough workout and makes them stronger. 
  2. Feel-Good Fitness: No one likes being sore after a workout. Protein helps you feel better faster, so you're ready to go again! 
  3. Stay Strong: As we get older, our muscles need a bit more help to stay strong. Protein is like their cheerleader, keeping them happy and healthy. 
  4. Bones Like Steel: Your bones love protein too! It keeps them tough, just like superheroes. 
  5. Keep Fit: Want to keep fit and trim? Protein can help you there, making sure your muscles stay and the extra fluff goes away. 

How Much Protein Do You Need?

Think about this: For every pound you weigh, you need more protein than before. Aim for about .7-1.2 grams per pound. Not sure what that means? No problem! Just think "a bit more protein than usual."

Where Do You Get Protein?

Protein is everywhere! You can find it in:

  • Meaty Treats: Chicken, fish, and even a bit of beef. 🍗
  • Dairy Delights: Milk, cheese, and yogurt. 🥛
  • Plant Power: Beans, nuts, and whole grains for our vegan and vegetarian friends. 🥦
