Protein Calculator

Protein is extremely important for muscle repair and for anyone doing physcial activity of any kind. People are often amazed at how much protein they should actually consume – have a look at the following calculator for an idea of what you require. There is nothing wrong with supplementing your diet with a high-quality protein. We take some every morning and especially right after working out to ensure our body has all the protein it needs to fix itself! The Firefighter-Hybrid Workout would definetely fall under ‘intense’ – but we feel a better representation of the level for protein requirements for our beginner through advanced programs would be to select ‘3-5x per week’ when doing your calculations.

This isn’t an ‘absolute’ you MUST do type of calculator, it’s just a rough idea.

To help you better interpret the results obtained from this calculator – please view our Protein Supplementation article.

As with everything else in life, use common-sense – if you have any medical conditions, questions, or concerns – speak to your health-care professional before blindly following any advice you find on the internet!
