Athletes need greater amounts of protein in their system than do non-athletes. This is largely due to the stress that strength training and a lifestyle of high impact activities has on the body. According to the website pumping station.com, "Strength training has been shown to decrease carbohydrate and fat storage, which increases the protein requirement significantly. Whey protein gives the muscles the extra fuel needed to repair, rebuild, grow and stay healthy." Whey protein is most sought after for athletes because it is digested and absorbed more efficiently than other protein.
