EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., Dec. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BiPro has partnered with high-flying pro basketball player Larry Nance Jr. Nance, one of the best dunkers in the world, drinks BiPro Whey Protein Isolate after workouts to give himself the protein he needs to perform at his best.
"As a power forward, I need as much strength and explosion as I can get when I'm on the court. The guys I go up against night after night are physical and imposing," Nance said. "I recover from my workouts with BiPro to stay fresh and strong. That way, when I've got a path to the rim, I can finish a possession with a powerful dunk."
Nance started using BiPro because it is one of the few high-quality protein supplements that fits his restricted diet. Diagnosed with Crohn's Disease, Nance pays close attention to the foods and drinks he consumes.
"With Crohn's, I have to really watch what I'm eating. I've done extensive research on protein supplements and found BiPro to be by far the best fit for me because of its high purity and minimal, natural ingredients," Nance said. "I especially love the taste of the strawberry powder, which has real strawberry pieces in it."
Known for coming into games and playing with high energy, Nance frequently shows off his athleticism on the court whether he's blocking shots, getting a steal or dunking on opponents. Nance's impressive vertical jump is featured in his first BiPro video.
"Larry is one of the most athletic players in basketball. We want to not only showcase his tremendous jumping ability, but also illustrate how hard work and proper nutrition help Larry excel on the court," said Jon Davis, executive vice president of Agropur Ingredients.
Before his professional career, Nance averaged 16.1 points and 7.2 rebounds per game in his senior season at Wyoming. The Akron, Ohio native's father, Larry Nance Sr., won the inaugural dunk contest in 1984.
