PowerBar Protein Plus

Now that the off season is right around the corner (or may even have started for some), many people will hit the weights, indoor bikes, or treadmills in preparation for the upcoming season.

I wanted to write a quick update about one of my favorite PowerBar products that I plan to use during the off season. It's called Protein Plus Powder and it comes in Vanilla and Chocolate. Basically this powder can be mixed with milk or water (or even add it with your smoothies!) to add 20 grams of protein. Now the protein used is a Tri-Source blend which means that three forms of protein are used : Soy, Whey, and Casein. All of these proteins are absorbed at different rates - slow, medium, and fast. What that means to you is that the protein will start being absorbed right away ANNNND last a long time too!

I have been taking the protein plus powder throughout the day when I need a snack to hold me over. It is nice that the calories are under 200 per serving, so you don't have to worry about packing in the calories if you are trying to watch your intake.

I highly recommend this product...and best yet....go onto PowerBar.com and order a canister for only $9.95 and use FREESHIP to get free shipping!

Happy off season training...as for me, I'm preparing for a HUGE next year. I can't wait and the training has already begun :)

Coach thanks for helping me get through the Ironman, I couldn't have done it without your help. Especially how you rode 100's of miles with me and swam with me too. That really helped me become a better rider and swimmer. It was nice to have someone help me with my nutrition intake because like you said, nutrition is half the battle. Thanks again
