General Strength Training

General strength training is a style of training that has no “specific” goal in the sense that the strength you build can only be expressed in specific ways. For example, if you only trained to be a high jumper and did high jumps, your ability to jump high is going to be pretty specific just high jumping. On the other side of the coin, getting stronger, say in a squat doesn’t guarantee that you jump higher in the high jump, but it does build the strength of those muscles that perform the high jump. However, those leg muscles that you build your squat can also be used in say baseball, sprinting, basketball and a whole slew of other sports. In this case, general training is not specific to any sport because the training itself is useful for just about any sport as long as the skill of the sport is trained to use that general strength. General strength is essentially the base of your pyramid. The larger the base, the taller the pyramid can become.

To help build that pyramid, sufficient protein intake is key to both your post-workout recovery and subsequent strength and hypertrophy gains. Each serving provides 22 grams of some of the highest-quality whey protein out there. The ingredients are all-natural - we only use cocoa powder, Himalayan rock salt, and Stevia for flavoring - resulting in a protein that quite simply tastes amazing. On top of that, each batch of our whey isolate undergoes a strict quality control process that includes independent third party testing to ensure that our protein is exactly what we say it is, free of any harmful substances or contaminants.
