BENEFITS

Whey is available in the following delicious flavors: Chocolate, Chai, Strawberry, Vanilla, and Unflavored.

Protein supplementation is absolutely essential for any hard-training athlete to maintain, repair, and grow lean muscle mass. Hammer Whey, ideal for supporting your immune system, and enhancing recovery between workouts and races, helps you obtain the full amount of protein you need daily.

Whey is the most easily assimilated of all proteins and is packed with a tremendous amount of naturally occurring branched chain amino acids. Hammer Whey also contains high amounts of other recovery-specific amino acids and is glutamine-fortified for immune system support. Hammer Whey is 100% whey protein isolate, so you get more actual protein per serving and less lactose and fat than obtained through the commonly found concentrate form.

Serious endurance athletes have protein requirements far above the normal adult RDA, so make sure you always have Hammer Whey on hand.

Extra Benefits:
Contains only 100% undenatured (non-heated) whey isolate, which is virtually lactose & fat free but rich in immune-enhancing beta-lactalbumins and alpha-lactalbumins. Gram per gram we believe you won't find a higher quality protein at a better value, especially when you compare the whey protein isolate in Hammer Whey to cheaper whey concentrates, most of which contain only 70-85% actual protein and higher amounts of fat and lactose.

Q: Should I use Whey or Soy?
A: Hammer Nutrition Fuels-what they are and how to use them

PRODUCT DETAIL

Maintenance, repair, and growth of lean muscle mass are as important to your training as your energy source. That's why serious endurance athletes also need considerable amounts of protein, far above the normal adult RDA. Low dietary protein lengthens recovery time, causes muscle weakness, and suppresses the immune system. Prolonged protein deficiencies will cancel the beneficial effects of your workouts; instead, you will become susceptible to fatigue, lethargy, anemia, and possibly even more severe disorders. Athletes with over-training syndrome usually have protein deficiency.

Hammer Whey fulfills your post-workout protein requirements, without any added sugars, fillers, sweeteners (artificial or otherwise), or other questionable nutrients

Why Hammer Whey for recovery?

Hammer Whey is the standard for promoting rapid recovery. For rebuilding lean muscle tissue and supporting optimal immune system function between workouts and races, whey protein has no peer. It is the most bioavailable form of protein and has the highest percentage of essential amino acids, the protein building blocks that your body does not manufacture and must obtain from dietary sources. Moreover, 25% of the essential amino acid component comes from the three most important amino acids for muscle tissue repair, the branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) leucine, isoleucine, and valine.

Each level scoop of Hammer Whey contains a huge six grams of glutamine, providing even more muscle rebuilding and immune system-enhancing benefits. Hammer Whey is also rich in two other highly beneficial amino acids, methionine and cysteine. These two nutrients stimulate the natural production of glutathione, one of the body's most powerful antioxidants. Endurance exercise increases free-radical production, so endurance athletes need extra antioxidant protection. Glutathione also supports immune system and liver functions.

Short, four-amino acid chains known as quadripeptides constitute another key component of whey protein. Quadripeptides have a pain-killing (analgesic) effect that can help alleviate the soreness after an intense workout or all-out race effort.

Another consideration when supplementing with Whey is that you choose whey protein isolate, not whey protein concentrate. Whey protein isolate is virtually lactose- and fat-free; many lactose-intolerant people can still use whey protein isolate because it contains only a miniscule amount of lactose. Also, whey isolate checks in at a sturdy 90-97% protein, whereas whey concentrate contains only 70-80% protein. Simply put, whey protein isolate is a purer protein and the best protein you can consume after a hard workout, which is why Hammer Whey is comprised of whey protein isolates only.

How well you perform tomorrow depends on how well you recover today. During the recovery process that your body grows stronger and more fit. Exercise breaks down muscle tissue, depletes energy stores, and stresses your immune system. Recovery builds these back up again—if you have adequate nutrient intake and a sensible exercise regime. Athletic improvement occurs during the rest and recovery phase, when your body responds to the stress of training. Smart athletes follow the formula for success: recover as purposely as you train. Hammer Whey is a key component for superior recovery.

WHEY PROTEIN - USAGE INSTRUCTIONS

Application:
97.9% lactose-free, glutamine-enhanced whey protein. Consume for recovery enhancement immediately following workouts and races or as part of a do-it-yourself Meal Replacement Product (MRP). See chart below to determine your daily protein intake requirements.

Mixing / Usage Instructions:
  • DIY Recoverite #1
  • Mix 1.25 scoops of Unflavored Hammer Whey with 3 servings of Hammer Gel in 4-8 ounces (approx. 118 - 237 ml) of water.

    This provides up to 370 calories from 22.5 grams of protein and up to 66 grams of carbohydrates (the amount based on the flavor of Hammer Gel chosen.

  • DIY Recoverite #2
  • Mix 1.5 scoops of Unflavored Hammer Whey with 3 scoops of HEED in 4-8 ounces (approx. 118 - 237 ml) of water.

    This provides 420 calories from 27 grams of protein and 78 grams of carbohydrates.

  • HGH Booster
  • To support a strong immune system during periods of stress and/or training volume, and to safely raise levels of HGH (up to 400%!), mix 1 scoop of Hammer Whey in 4-6 ounces (approx. 118-177ml) of water only (no carbohydrates) up to 30 minutes prior to bedtime.
Notes:

Whey protein should not be used immediately before or during exercise due to the added glutamine, which tends to produce ammonia, a primary cause of premature muscle fatigue.

For protein supplementation before or during exercise, we recommend Hammer Soy, Perpetuem, or Sustained Energy.

Daily Protein Intake Chart:

How much protein do endurance athletes need? Numerous studies have demonstrated that endurance athletes in heavy training need more protein than recreational athletes do. This chart gives you a good reference as to how much protein you should consider consuming daily from all sources. More information can be found in The Endurance Athlete's Guide To Success.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Protein I love the quality Hammer puts into their products - the Whey Protein is no exception. Great recovery and overall maintenance source of nutrition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought the Chocolate Whey protein to help in my recovery from my workouts. I love putting a scoop in my homemade pancake mix after hard brick sessions. It's also fantastic to take right before going to bed with water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great for after workouts. I would not use anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good I have been using this product for years. It does exactly what I want it to do - I use it to add protein to my diet when I perhaps didn't get enough on a particular day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Protein on the market There is nothing better than one scoop of Chocolate Whey in oatmeal with fruit and honey

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Taste - Love it! I ordered the Vanilla Whey, and it tastes great. I mix it with a smoothie in the mornings, and feel like I have sustained energy all day. I run multiple marathons and ultras a year, and train hard in-between. I knew I needed more protein in my diet, and the Whey protein fills in that gap. I still use Recoverite after longer runs because it has the needed carbs and protein.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent HGH Booster! I have been using Hammer Whey as a morning protein supplement and night time HGH booster for several months now. As a protein supplement, there is nothing better. I take one level scoop with water (no carbs) in the morning with breakfast and never feel hungry going into lunch. At night, one more level scoop with water just before going to bed is the perfect night cap. Hammer Whey is helping me reach my goals!
