Is It Good To Take Protein Supplements?

Your primary diet should come from food. Protein powders, as the name suggests, are dietary supplements. Using it as a food can cause side effects. Regarding your trainer, it's time to get a new one. You're a beginner, and with proper diet you can see benefits, and not just from pumping up on protein powder. It is obvious that your coach is trying to sell you things or has something to do with the product supplier. I've known such people personally who trick newbies into high doses of protein.

Slowly build up your stamina by doing cardio. Nothing magically comes overnight and you shouldn't wait for it. Remember, your journey towards health is a marathon, not a short sprint.

Your last 2 sentences are really very, very motivating and it builds some trust in me. Thank you Sir. Actually, I was worried and afraid that I won't be able to do bodybuilding the way I was told

We are happy to help and are very welcome. You can do it, it just takes time. Some people are tough, so just keep doing a good job. Your competition should be with you, you should aim to be better than what you were. Don't compete with others, you may never know where they are going. Relax and focus, you will do just fine.

Protein supplements like whey protein powder can be very useful, especially for strength trainers and bodybuilders. If your stamina declines due to malnutrition (such as a calorie deficit), protein supplements can improve your stamina. However, when you are malnourished, you will find it very difficult to build your muscles.

Multiple sets of 20-25 reps are not ideal for increasing muscle strength or size. They are essentially a form of metabolic conditioning. Instead, consider three sets of five reps of compound barbell movements, such as: B. Squats, deadlifts, and overhead presses.

Do you really think that more repetitions won't build muscle because more repetitions mean more movement and more growth? Please correct me if I am wrong

@Learning, yes, high-intensity, low-repetition training stimulates muscle growth better than low-intensity, high-intensity training. The general adjustment syndrome is relevant here. Strength is the ability to generate force against external resistance, and the ability to generate muscle force is closely related to muscle size (cross-sectional area). To a Force adjustment (and to achieve muscle growth) we need adequate burden apply: In this case the body needs to generate more force (lift heavy).
