Steak is a great source of red meat and is one of the very best providers of Iron and Protein. Eating steak will help you build muscle and give you lots of energy.
Many body builders take a Creatine supplement to give them more energy for a more intense workout. Creatine is found in red meat such as steak which is why it is especially important for muscle gainers to eat plenty.

Here are the most popular cuts of beef steak.
- Filet mignon, better known as medallions or tenderloin steak is the most expensive but the most tender.
- The Porterhouse and T-bone are not for the small appetite as the portions are very large.
- Rib eye steak is tender but is better cooked in the oven, not grilled.
- Rump steak is one of the most common although this can sometimes be a little tough so a bit of care is needed when cooking.
- Sirloin steak is more tender than rump steak but be careful when you buy as there are top and bottom "cuts" of which the top is the better one.
