Don’t feel left out when dessert time rolls around. This brownie is the bomb, and it won’t derail your bodybuilding diet. Besides an avalanche of chocolate cheat flavor, you get 78 solid grams of protein from Six Star professional-strength whey powder, plus 6 additional grams from a large egg. To save you the math, that’s 84 total grams. The best part? You don’t even have to turn on the oven.
No matter how you slice it, a sandwich is still a carb-heavy meal—not what you want when you’re trying to sculpt a lean bod. Skip the bread and blend up an oldie but goodie, smoothie style, instead. Creamy peanut butter and sweet strawberry jam are whirled together with Greek yogurt, Six Star whey and a splash of milk for a frosty, drinkable lunch with extra protein punch.
Hit the gym, then hit the kitchen. You’ll score triple the post-workout nutrition and triple the flavor with this punched up, three-berry smoothie. Berries can’t be beat when it comes to antioxidant power—they’re packed with the protective nutrients you need after exercise unleashes a flurry of free radicals to hammer your healthy cells. Blended with flax, strawberry protein power and a bit of milk, they make a smooth, refreshing recovery drink that blows boring chocolate and vanilla versions away.
Guys, get your aprons—your next workout’s in the kitchen. You throw back protein like nobody’s business. Shakes, smoothies, anything to up those grams, right? But you don’t have to burn out your blender or go broke buying boxes of pre-wrapped snacks. It’s easy to make your own bars, and this way you know you’re getting “clean fuel” from real, whole food ingredients. Each one of these chewy, chocolaty babies brings home 22 grams of quality protein, thanks to wholesome ingredients and top-of-the-line whey powder.
I scream, you scream, our muscles scream… for ice cream? Give your body what it craves with this protein-packed frozen treat, made from non-fat Greek yogurt, frosty-cold blueberries and a scoop of quality whey. Blend a batch before you hit the gym to fuel up or right afterward for a refreshing, replenishing cool-down dessert.

I was never blessed with shapely, round glutes. I squatted for them. You can always buy yourself a chest, but if you want firm, great-looking glutes, you’ve got to put in the work. During contest prep for my first bikini competition I was under the impression that shoulder-width squats on the Smith machine, leg presses and lunges would give me the glutes I wanted. Wrong! With the help of my degree in exercise physiology and my experience as a personal trainer, I was able to figure out a system that really worked.
Is your fridge stuffed with holiday leftovers? Here’s a tasty way to make some space. When you tire of turkey sandwiches, use what’s left from the big feast to make this hearty chili. A steaming, hot bowlful serves up 46 grams of lean protein to fuel those late-fall, early-winter workouts.
