A busy leading man and now MuscleTech’s new Chief Creative Director, Henry Cavill has a pretty jam-packed schedule – or, as the native Brit might say, “a lot on his plate”. If he’s to keep up with the demands of his profession, which would give an athlete a run for their money, he can’t afford to have gaps in his nutrition strategy.
Cavill typically wakes up between 4am and 5am, particularly if he’s filming and has to fit his training in before he’s due on set that day. (If you thought famous actors have all the time in the world to work out, think again.)
For breakfast, Cavill has a protein shake with oatmeal. His go-to is MuscleTech’s Grass-Fed 100% Whey Protein, which contains 20g of protein and just 140 calories per 35g serving but no artificial colours or flavors. It’s also free of growth hormone and gluten, plus non-GMO.
Whey is a high-quality, highly absorbable and highly convenient way to hit your daily protein intake, whatever your body composition or performance goals: whether you’re a lifter or runner, bulking up or slimming down. Upping your protein intake increases muscle gain, when combined with resistance training, and helps prevent muscle loss when dieting.
Consuming protein before exercise has also been shown to reduce muscle soreness after, improving recovery. And pound for pound, or gram for gram, whey is one of the best protein sources around. Particularly between 4am and 5am.
MuscleTech Grass-Fed 100% Whey Protein is also available in Triple Chocolate flavor but Cavill’s preferred variety is Deluxe Vanilla: “Because there’s blueberries in ma shake and those two things go very well together.”
