The True Strength of Whey

Whey Protein Isolates (WPIs) are the purest form of whey protein that currently exists. WPIs are costly to use, but rate among the best proteins that money can buy. That’s why they’re the first ingredient you read on the Gold Standard 100% Whey label. By using WPI as the primary ingredient along with premium ultra-filtered whey protein concentrate (WPC) we’re able to pack 24 grams of protein into every serving to support your muscle building needs after training. ON’s attention to detail also extends to mixability. This superior quality powder has been instantized to mix easily using a shaker cup or just a glass and spoon. There’s no doubt that this is the standard by which all other whey proteins are measured.


Directions

Spoon Stirred: Gold Standard 100% Whey is instantized. That means if you forgot your shaker cup or don't have time to get out the blender, just add one rounded scoops of Gold Standard 100% Whey to a glass filled with 6-8 oz of water or your favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon. Stir for about 30 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved. Tip: Adjust the taste of your Gold Standard 100% Whey by varying the amount of liquid that you use to prepare it. For a bolder flavor with slightly more body and sweetness, mix each scoop with 4-6 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. For a milder tasting, less sweet shake, use 8-10 oz of liquid per scoop.

 

Shaker Cup: Bringing a shaker cup with you to the gym is the best way to get a dose of protein immediately after your workout. Just pour in 6-8 oz of your preferred beverage and then add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey to your shaker cup. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds.

 

Blender: Add one scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey to a blender filled with 6-8 oz of water or your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Then add 1 or 2 ice cubes and blend for an additional 30 seconds. Shake Up Your Shake: By adding fresh or frozen fruits, peanut butter, flaxseed oil, coconut and other high-energy ingredients, you can make an even more delicious shake. Stack Up Your Shake: You can make Gold Standard 100% Whey an even better post workout product by adding supplements like Creatine, Glutamine, BCAA, and concentrated carbohydrate powders.

 

Think Outside The Glass: Gold Standard 100% Whey can be used for more than just protein shakes. Try mixing a scoop into oatmeal, yogurt, or the milk that you pour over your morning breakfast cereal. Better yet, increase the protein content of muffins, cookies, brownies, etc., by adding a scoop or two to your baked goods recipe.

 

Suggested use: For healthy adults, consume enough protein to meet your daily protein requirements with a combination of high protein foods and protein supplements throughout the day as part of a balanced diet and exercise program.

 

Store in a cool, dry place.

Stability Ball Exercises for a Total-Body Workout at Home

Originally developed for physical therapy, stability balls are now being used by everyone for home workouts– and for good reason! Besides being an effective tool for core and abdominal exercise, stability balls are ideal for many major muscle groups. They help create more challenging functional workouts that require greater energy and make your muscles work harder and more efficiently, while also improving coordination and balance. Plus, they’re fun to use!

Tips for using a stability ball

Start by choosing the correct size ball for your height: Height – up to 5’1” Size – small (ball height 45 cm/18”) Height – 5’1” to 5’7” Size – medium (ball height 55 cm/22”) Height 5’8” to 6’1” Size – large (ball height 65 cm/26”) If you’re new to using a stability ball, for easier use, deflate the ball slightly. A firmer ball will make the exercises harder, so as you get stronger you can inflate the ball more to make it firmer. Whether using your exercise ball inside or outside be sure to choose an open area where you have enough room to move around. While sitting on the ball, keep your feet flat on the floor hip width apart, knees bent at a 90 degree angle directly over your ankles, and keep your back straight. If you feel unstable while sitting, it’s OK to spread your feet a little wider. As with all exercises, make sure to breathe properly. Breathe in through the nose and out through your mouth during each exercise.

Push ups

  • Next, draw your hips in forward and up with the ball roll under your toes until your rear-end is in line with your shoulders. Pause, then slowly return to starting position.

Leg raises

  • Lie flat on your back with your legs straight and heels resting on the ball. Next raise your hips up to form a straight line from neck to feet.
