We can spend hours training every day, beating up our bodies, sweating like crazy, and pushing through pain just to get nowhere. Many of us do that exact thing. We carefully plan our reps and sets, push to beat our last AMRAP score, slap more and more weight on the bar, but yet see no progress in our fitness goals. Like a car stuck spinning its tires in mud, we work and work but can get nowhere. Is it possible that it is not a lack of effort in the gym, but instead what we do not put in our body post workout and in our daily routine? There is probably a missing link, and it is probably protein.
