Power Hit Protein Shot
* 33 grams of mass-building protein
* With BCAAs for anti-catabolism
* Less than 1 gram of carbohydrate
* An amino acid profile for maximal anabolic drive
With 33 grams of mass-building protein in purified deionized water, VPX’s new Power Hit is a next generation protein delivery system that gives you the needed building blocks to attain lean mass faster than a Top Fuel Dragster. With whey protein, considered the king of all protein sources, Power Hit gives you the proper amino acids for maximal muscle hypertrophy. In fact, a recent study had three groups of men performed a bout of single leg resistance exercise followed by the consumption of a drink containing an equivalent content of essential amino acids (10g) as either whey hydrolysate, micellar casein, or soy protein isolate. They found gains in muscle protein synthesis is best after consuming whey.1 Another study confirmed that when strength changes were expressed relative to body weight, whey protein supplementation produced greater improvements in strength compared to the casein.2 Scientists have also found that whey protein ingestion improves skeletal muscle protein gain through mechanisms that go beyond the EAA or essential amino acid content.3 But nevertheless, Power Hit contains a compliment of the essential amino acids such as leucine, valine, and isoleucine. With these ingredients, a hit of Power Hit is just what your muscles crave after a mind-blowing, muscle-blasting workout.
