Delicious, easy-to-digest whey protein you’ll actually enjoy taking
Your body literally can’t create new muscle without protein. Research proves that taking protein before and after workouts is the best way to speed muscle tissue repair and gain more lean muscle. Whey is the go-to protein to take after your WOD because it’s absorbed faster than other forms of protein. And Driven Whey™ also includes a full array of vital BCAAs and other amino acids to fuel your muscle growth.
Whether your goal is to increase muscle mass, lose weight, burn fat or just add pure, lean protein to your diet, Driven Whey™ is the optimal supplement to help you meet your performance goals.
Why Driven Whey Is Superior
The complete protein solution
The resistance exercises in functional fitness turn on your body’s muscle protein synthesis mechanism(mTOR). Intense workouts shred muscle fibers, and your body wants to repair that damage as soon as possible.
Making the most of this anabolic muscle-building state requires two things:
- Protein (preferably in an easy-to-digest form)
- Branch chain amino acids, or BCAAs(Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine)
Driven® Nutrition’s Whey Protein combines both of these essential muscle-building ingredients in one delicious, easy-to-digest powder that dissolves quickly and completely.
A clean, delicious formula
Driven® Nutrition’s cGMP and ongoing batch testing guarantee purity, and our clean, gut-friendly formulas help you feel good in and out of the gym.
Best of all, Driven Whey™ Protein comes in a variety of truly delicious flavors you’ll really enjoy...without any of the chalkiness, grit or stomach upset of other brands.
What should I take post workout, PostWod or Driven Whey?
Both our Driven Whey™ and PostWod™ are excellent for recovery. While PostWod™ was formulated to be taken specifically after you train, the Driven Whey™ can be enjoyed anytime you want to get some extra protein into your diet.
How Much Protein During Dieting?
Mike T Nelson, CSCS,MSME, PhD “Yo, Bro – how much protein do I need?” I am sure you hear that question all the time. I sure do. While the long lengthy answer is always “it depends,” that answer is not very helpful or applicable, so let’s dive into the research and take a look.
Can You Only Use 30 grams of Protein at one time?
By Mike T Nelson, MSME, CSCS, PhD There is plenty of data to show that protein has many positive effects from increasing lean body mass (muscle yo!) (2,3), assisting with positive tendon changes (stronger soft tissue) (3), to even help recover from injuries (4). But how much protein do you need?
Size doesn’t matter. (When it comes to protein intake)
New research is now showing why individuals with more muscle mass do not necessarily need more protein. Scientists from the University of Scotland have begun to look at muscle growth response from protein intake following full body workouts and split training workouts using large and small individuals.
Metabolic Flexibility with Protein
Athletes are constantly looking for ways to do 2 main things: 1) increase performance 2) improve body composition.
Metabolic flexibility is the ability of the body to use fat as the main fuel during low intensity exercise / rest and to also use carbohydrates to fuel intense training (1,2)
If you can increase metabolic flexibility, you can increase the use of fat without impairing the ability to use carbs during weight training / high intensity interval training sessions; thus, maximizing both aspects.
Nothing gets into a Driven® Nutrition workout supplement unless we’re confident it can help you achieve your fitness and strength goals.Our evidence-based products are formulated according to the most persuasive clinical studies we can find. Here are just a few samples of the available research on the ingredients in our Grass-Fed Driven Whey™ Protein workout supplement.
