Fastest Way to Gain Upper Body Muscle by BRENDA BARRON Last Updated: Sep 11, 2017 livestrong.com
‘…You need protein to build muscle anywhere on your body, including the upper body. As a general rule, you need 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight you have.

Your muscles start to use available protein to rebuild within a few hours of working out, but your body is especially good at absorbing carbs and protein within 45 minutes after your workout—the post-workout window you’ve probably heard about…
