How to build muscle and get stronger

Sweat the gym, don’t sweat your diet

Regular load-bearing exercise will trigger your body to build muscle and make you stronger, but diet is equally important. Hitting the gym without adequately fuelling your body will leave you fatigued, demoralised and short of your goals. 

Follow these three key steps to start building muscle quickly and efficiently.

It's key to building muscle

Resistance training leads to muscle hypertrophy (muscle gain)
Food and supplements alone will not increase muscle mass

Putting muscles under repeated stress with weight-bearing exercise triggers muscle repair which ultimately increases muscle mass and strength.

This means lifting heavy (to you) stuff, under supervision (or with appropriate knowledge) to avoid injury, at least twice a week.  

To help maximise muscle gain

Protein is required to repair and build muscle after exercise
Your body can only use around 20-30g of protein per meal 

Eating huge amounts of protein will not lead to bigger muscles. You can achieve optimal muscle protein synthesis (muscle building) by simply eating protein with every meal, spreading your protein intake throughout the day.

Purition typically contains 20-25g per serving when prepared with milk or yogurt.

How Purition can help...

With 20-25g protein per serving when prepared with milk or yoghurt, Purition is an easy way to get the protein you need at every meal to support your training.

  • Contains all 9 essential amino acids
  • High protein breakfast, lunch or snack
  • Quick & easy source of high-quality protein
  • Made with minimally-processed whole foods

You'll have more energy to train

A whole food diet naturally provides essential nutrients and energy you need to support exercise
A whole food diet will also provide the mental clarity to keep you motivated

Nutritionists and health professionals agree that eating whole foods is key to a healthy diet. It provides more vitamins, minerals, fiber, healthy fats and protein. The result? You'll feel your best, have more energy to train and get the results you want, faster.

Purition is made from minimally processed whole foods, unlike other protein powders that are ultra processed powders. That’s whole, ground or chopped seeds and nuts, plus a little extra vegetarian or vegan protein to support your protein needs.
