for example if i workout today with back only and take 2x protein of my body weight. my question is, if i workout the next day with chest, do i need more protein than the amount of protein i took yesterday since TWO body parts are already worked out? or does 2x protein of my body weight enough to be absorbed for my back and chest?

what i mean is do i need to make more protein for working out more often or should i just stick with the guideline always which is to take protein that is twice your body weight?

1) You don't need 2g of protein per lb of body weight regardless of what you are or are not working out on any particular day
2) Calculate your macros based on the sticky and hit your protein requirement daily.
