You probably thought Joe Wicks already had his own range of protein powders and other fitness supplements (we did), but you (OK, we) were wrong. The king of fitness is launching his range of 14 supplements with MyProtein on 1st January 2019, just in time to help with any New Year health kicks you might be planning.
The range includes protein powders, as you’d expect, and they’re named as followers of Wicks would expect. There’s “Bangin’ Whey Protein” and “Proper Vegan Protein”, with vanilla, salted caramel, chocolate brownie and turmeric latte flavours available.
There are also BCAA powders for omnivores and vegans alike, described as “Fruity”, which could be a reference to the flavour or a Wicks buzzword. We’ll confess to not being entirely sure on that front, but we’ll let you know when we try them out.
Beyond protein powders you’ll find vitamins and minerals, including multivitamins, D3 and omega 3 fatty acids. There’s some real food thrown into the bargain as well, with the Wicks MyProtein range including gluten-free oats, crunchy or smooth peanut butter, and almond and cashew nut butters.
Although this is Wicks’s first range of Body Coach-branded supplements, he has been linked to MyProtein for several years and recommended its supplements to use alongside his fitness plans. A few classic Wicks recipe, such as his 15-minute protein pancakes or these super-quick no-bake protein brownies, use protein powder as an ingredient.
Supplements are a useful training aid when time is tight or you can’t face stuffing a full meal in your gob between tough gym sessions, but it’s always a good idea to try to get all the nutrients you need from your regular diet. Fortunately Wicks has always been a good man to go to on that front as well. Here are 15 of our favourite recipes from Wicks to consider, alongside a cracking 30-minute tandoori cod burger recipe to try when you do have a bit more time in the kitchen.
