What is the best protein powder to build muscle?
My guess is that you are just like me in regards to whey protein and that it doesn’t matter what brand you get, it just matters the amount of grams per sitting. I thought the same thing for many years and after drinking just about every shake that I could get, I was always left with that heavy bloated feeling for a while. I have read before that whey protein is hard for your body to digest and to some degree that is true, it depends on the how the whey protein was made truthfully.
So what is the best protein powder to build muscle? Read my finding below.
I found a better whey
So with me being a big MMA fan and also trying my hand at BJJ training, I needed to find a good protein with fast recovery without leave me feeling like taking a nap somewhere afterwards. Well to be quite honest that is a lot to ask for but is it?…..Not this day and age.
As some of you may have heard the name Mike Dolce before if you watch the UFC or any MMA for that matter, he was and still is a personal trainer for a lot of high level MMA fighters and helps them make their weight cuts being weigh ins.
He now has brought some of that knowledge into a new whey protein product which actually is one of the better forms of whey protein on the market today. Like anyone else, I tried it and to this day I keep a bag of it in my kitchen in case I need that extra bit of muscle recovery. It comes unflavored so you don’t have to worry about what you mix it with to get a good taste out of it. I have mixed it in with smoothies that I make along with my every morning protein shake before work at 5am.

Mike Dolce also has several different books that share great knowledge regarding how to eat properly to meet tour goals whatever they may be.
As a MMA leading trainer for a lot of UFC fighters he was voted the MMA trainer of the year for 2013, 2014, 2015 which is an award given to the leading and most influential strength and conditioning advisor of MMA.

My morning shake
12 oz of almond 30 calorie Silk Milk
1 scoop of Dolce Whey (25g protein)
1 scoop of Hemp Force protein Vanilla flavor
I mix these three ingredients together to get my main protein from the Dolce Whey, the sweetness from the Hemp force, and the Silk milk as the filler or the base. This gives me the nutrients that I need and kills my craving until about 10am which is about 5 hours later. All of this together is my best way to build or maintain muscle and not gain anything unwanted weight.
