You basically can’t grow muscle without taking whey protein after workouts but that doesn’t mean that whey can’t be better. Slow-digesting casein protein was once believed to have no place around workout time, but newer research suggests otherwise.
In fact, a study from Baylor University (Waco, Texas) reported that men who consumed a whey/casein blend protein shake after workouts for 10 weeks gained significantly more muscle mass than the subjects who consumed a whey protein shake without casein.Try using a protein Like Intek Evolution or Pro Complete 40 both of which combine whey and casein in an ideal blend.
