Some questions are currently unanswered. Please answer all questions before submitting your answers.

1. Whey protein is the gold standard for protein supplements, but which plant proteins have been shown to be as effective as whey for supporting short-term (<12 weeks) strength and hypertrophy adaptations?

2. To maximise recovery the ideal post-workout meal should consist of a high-quality protein, clean carbohydrates and less than 10% fat.

3. Eating multiple small meals throughout the day increases your metabolic rate by forcing your body to process food more quickly compared to eating fewer large meals. This results in more calories being burned over the course of a day.

4. What should you eat prior to aerobic exercise in order to maximise the number of calories burned?

5. You should always eat a meal consisting of protein, carbohydrates and fat 2-3 hours before a workout. Failing to do so can result in muscle tissue being catabolised for energy during your workout.
