His overall size should determine how much he can get away with. I have doubts as to many 120lbs guys being able to do much with 80gr of protein at one time in a shake.
I weigh 212lbs and am roughly (this is a guess b/c I haven’t had it measured in several years) around 18% bodyfat. I have a hard time putting on muscle, but can put on bodyfat like a champ!! Currently doing a modified version of Joe Defranco’s WS4SB program.
My protein shakes range from 70-80gr of protein, however, I also weigh just under 260lbs currently. There are no studies showing how much someone can get away with at certain weights and much is speculation.
I can only tell you that with my background/education, it would seem to me to be a bit much for someone your size in one sitting aside from possibly directly after training. Either way, in the end you will have to find what works FOR YOU and no one can work that out for you.[/quote]
Thanks!! Well, before bumping up the protein in the shakes I was taking in about 210g on non-training days and 240g on training days. I am going to continue w/ the 60g protein shakes for a while and see what happens. Thanks for the help!!!
