Platinum Hydro Whey by Optimum Nutrition
Plenty of gym rats are familiar with Optimum Nutrition’s Gold Standard Whey. The next step up is Platinum Hydro Whey, which is 100% hydrolysed whey isolate—meaning the isolates are broken down for easier mixing and digestion. Each serving packs in 30g of protein and nearly 9g of muscle-restoring BCAAs. “Plus, I think it tastes a little better than the regular stuff,” Collins says. CrossFit workouts seem to really beat people up, and a lot of the hardcore athletes say that BCAAs help them heal up from that soreness quickly. And because hydrolysed whey isolates are faster-digesting than standard whey concentrate, it helps deliver maximum protein to your muscles fast right after a tough WOD.
