A Case for Carbohydrates and Strength

Into strength training? Then you may know about the importance of protein for your muscles. But you may be less aware of the role that carbohydrates play when it comes to total body fitness. Carbohydrates are to…

Ingredients That Count

You put everything into your workouts, so get everything out. CLIF BUILDER’s was crafted with ingredients that “count” so you can get the most out of your workout.

The right nutrition is key to accomplishing your goals. BUILDER’s can help by providing protein to build and repair muscle, carbohydrates for sustained energy, and ingredients that serve a purpose.

Vitamins and Minerals

Vitamins and minerals serve many roles in the body. Many are essential for protein and energy metabolism to occur while others play a key role in the body’s ability to recover from physical stress such as injury or even surgery. To help you meet your daily requirements, BUILDER’s is fortified with a carefully considered blend of vitamins and minerals functioning in 3 key areas of muscle health and total body fitness:

  • Involved in energy metabolism and delivery to muscles
  • Involved in protein metabolism
  • Involved in recovery from physical stress

If your Body can’t use it, Neither Will We

Sometimes what’s NOT in your food is as important as what is. BUILDER’s never contains the following ingredients, because they don’t contribute to muscle health:
  • No partially hydrogenated oil, which is the source of trans
  • No artificial sweeteners, that provide zero energy
  • No sugar alcohols, that can give you a sour stomach
  • No artificial flavors, contrived from non-food chemicals
  • No ingredients sourced from genetically engineered materials

Protein to Build and Repair Muscle

More muscle means more strength - we know this. But workouts are only half the equation. Helping muscles BUILD and REPAIR by feeding them the right kind of protein - at just the right time - is also important. BUILDER’s is made to help your muscles finish what they start.

Workouts won’t do much for you without the right type and amount of protein, to build and repair muscle. Even timing plays a crucial role. Here are a few quick tips to help you get the most out of your workouts.

How Much?

Your body needs protein all the time, but after workouts it needs even more. Depending on your weight and activity, your total daily protein needs could range from 70-200g per day. After an intense workout, a boost of 10-35g of protein will boost and speed muscle recovery. BUILDER's contains 20g of protein in each bar, just the right amount to kick start ‘repair mode’.

Calculate It

What Type?

There are ten essential amino acids required by the body, and proteins that contain all ten are considered “complete”. Complete proteins vary in the level of amino acids they provide which is why it is important to consume a variety of protein sources each day. BUILDER’s provides complete protein from soy, the only non-animal protein containing all of the essential amino acids.

When?

Your body is always breaking down muscle which is why you need to eat protein-rich foods throughout the day. Exercise causes muscle to break down even faster so the most important time to eat protein is within 30 minutes of completing a workout. The right timing can help muscles recover quicker when you’ve pushed them to their limits.

Energy To Sustain Your Workout

Strength building requires energy. Fast fleeting energy isn’t going to cut it. BUILDER’s offers energy to your hard working muscles, so you can last as long as your workout does.

Carbohydrates translate to energy. Whether it's your first
set or your last, carbohydrate–based energy is what helps
get you through. Carbohydrates break down into glucose,
which is the main source of fuel for your moving muscles,
and your brain. Sugar, grains, and starch are sources of
carbohydrate that deliver sustained energy to
working muscles.

Post-workout, eating carbohydrates and protein together is the ultimate 1-2 punch for total body recovery. The carbohydrates replenish your energy stores and the protein helps rebuild muscle tissue. BUILDER’s contains an adequate carbohydrate source to promote muscle movement and replenish muscles post-workout. Watch out for protein bars that contain artificial sweeteners that provide zero energy or claim ‘low carb’ as they may not provide the energy needed to get through your workout and activate the protein needed to build and repair muscle.

Protein and the Sport You Play

Despite what you may have heard, protein is not just for bodybuilders. In fact, all active men need protein to help build and repair the muscles they use during exercise. Your individual protein needs will not only vary based on your body weight, total caloric intake, and overall health, but also by the training program or sport you participate in. Put simply, your body will require more protein for a 2-hour, high-intensity workout than it needs for a 10-minute run.

Men in a general fitness program, one where they exercise moderately a few times a week, can meet their protein needs by consuming protein at or slightly above the Recommended Dietary Allowance, which is 0.4–0.5 grams of protein per pound of body weight per day. For a 200-lb. man, that’s approximately 80–100 grams of protein per day.

Athletes who engage in intense exercise on a regular basis—for example, sprinting, obstacle race training, CrossFit, soccer, MMA training—need more protein than those doing less strenuous exercise because of the physical demands placed on their body. Athletes participating in intense exercise typically need up to 0.9 grams of protein per pound of body weight per day, approximately 180 grams of protein per day for a 200-lb. man.

Endurance athletes in particular need to pay close attention to protein. While these athletes may not be focused on building muscle size, protein enhances recovery by repairing the microscopic damage to muscle tissue caused by long bouts of exercise. Adding protein to a carbohydrate-rich, post-workout meal enhances protein synthesis in muscles and helps to restock an endurance athlete’s fuel tank.

Take a look at the chart below to determine your protein needs (both daily protein needs and “window of opportunity” needs in the first 30 minutes after activity) based on the sport that you play:

Intensity of Sport Examples Daily Protein Needs “Window of Opportunity” Protein Needs
Low to moderate endurance activity Jogging, recreational racquetball 0.4–0.5 grams per lb. body weight 0.09–0.23 grams per lb. body weight
Moderate to intense activity Football, basketball, ultimate Frisbee, team sports 0.45–0.68 grams per lb. body weight; more likely at the upper end of this range for those playing at an intense level 0.09–0.23 grams per lb. body weight
High-intensity endurance activity Marathon training, long-distance swimming Up to 0.73 grams per lb. body weight 0.09–0.23 grams per lb. body weight
High-intensity sport or training CrossFit, weight lifting, obstacle race training, MMA training, competitive triathlon 0.68– 0.91 grams per lb. body weight 0.09– 023 grams per lb. body weight

Check out the Protein Calulator for more specific recommendations on protein needs based on body weight and activity level, and suggestions for high-protein foods.
