Since this week is a de-load I️ took today’s squat workout as an opportunity to practice my breathing and bracing. And honestly practicing bracing and breathing tired me out! Do you practice your bracing?
P.S this picture was taken on the seated calf raise machine and no calf raises were done 😂
R1 Whey is @ruleoneproteins
standard blended whey protein. The macro nutrients on this whey blend are on par for industry standards, with a total of ~130 calories per serving. They make all of the industry's "must flavors" while having some more novel flavors as well. What sets them above the industry, in my opinion, is the quality and manufacturing.
Probably the least eye catching thing about R1 Whey is the macronutrient profile. It is set at a high but standard 24g of protein per scoop serving with ~2g of fat and ~4g of carbs (flavor dependant). I say least eye catching because this is, imo, a baseline profile a good whey blend should have. Sources of the blend come from concentrates, isolates, and hydrolysates of strictly whey. Some companies, honesty or not, will add in other protein fractions in their blends. So its good to not see that here as this advertises as a whey only product.
The flavors of R1 Whey are widely varried with some really interesting options. I have only had cookies and cream and red velvet options which were both exceptional. The flavor profile for both were dead accurate for a protein (i mix in milk). They mix up a bit better than I anticipated for a blend, but it still has a classic milkshake thickness most blends have. They have crazier flavorslike sherbet and shamrock swirl which I am curious about in a protein. It's unique nonetheless
Rule 1 is a company thats built on experience and learning from the mistakes of the industry. They manufacture the majority of their in house at their very own NSF and GMP facility. Anything they do outsource comes from extremely reputable sources like Creative Compounds or Compound Solutions array of trademarked or patented technologies. For the protein manufacturing however I love to see this done in a facility like this. The level of scrutiny and the detail it requires to have those two titles ensures that I am at the very least not getting something contaminated. This puts them right up there with Nutrabio. Not something thats easy or often done in the industry.....yet.
You know you’re busy when you’re driving to the gym and can’t remember what muscle groups you’ve worked this week! 🙇🏼♀️. Oh yeah, I already did two leg days, and it’s Thursday. 🤦🏼♀️. Busy yes, but never too busy to work out. Exercise is therapy; make time for it! Happy Thursday! 🙌🏼😘.
Back home and back in the hustle... Chest day it was
