“There is plenty of scientific research investigating the importance of protein in athletic training and performance. There are a number of factors that are worth considering; protein type, protein quality and protein timing. These issues are important for my athletes in the context of pre-season where we hope to make the biggest changes in body composition.”
“Irish Biltong provides a lean source of protein with a full complement of amino acids and their single serve packet provides just the right amount to optimally support recovery from training.”

“Regular protein intake is important for the whole population to maintain muscle mass and sustain better overall health throughout life. Nutrition is essential for players to be able to train to their maximum capacity, if player nutrition is poor the improvements and adaptation to training simply won’t happen. A vital aspect of this adaptation is their recovery nutrition and a regular protein intake throughout the day (especially straight after training) ensures that players are supporting both muscle growth and the essential repair processes.”
