As a body builder you will likely see the value and importance of a few choice supplements. Buying supplements can often be cash dependant, more cash might equal more to play with, but there are always the essential buys. Let’s delve into a list of sports supplements that will get you the essentials to provide for your goals: Whey protein: likely the top of everyone’s list. Whey fills in when you are short on food as a shake, or as a shake to enable you to bump up your calories to hit your daily target. But we ultimately value whey protein for its convenience and anabolic role after a workout. Whey, derived from milk, is highly anabolic in its nature, partly due to its amino acid profile. When taking post workout opt for a whey isolate shake, but for the use of snacks and meal replacements opt for a blend that contains whey isolate, whey concentrate and maybe one of two others like egg protein. Creatine: the most researched supplement there is, something you would be a fool to exclude from your supplement stack. Creatine is proven to increase the gains you experience in the gym as a result of increasing energy storage in a muscle. So more reps and weight = more muscle gains over a prolonged period of time. It will also help your physique look fuller by drawing more water volume into your muscles. Either buy creatine on its own or as part of an all-in-one post workout shake. Pre workout: there are many pre workout supplements, all with their own fan base. Many will contain similar ingredients, and at varying doses, and a lot of the time this means that you need to do your own research and take a leap of faith and try one. Many have been around a long time, and that’s a good thing, that means they are tried and tested and are lasting the test of time. A pre workout formula can increase your overall gym output through many targeted ingredients that up regulate your nervous system and overall mood and provide many nutrients that help you go harder for longer. BCAA’s: with the popularity of fasted training and intermittent fasting it is important to fuel yourself with amino acids to limit muscle breakdown and provide your working muscles with fuel for the session. 10g of BCAA’s before and 10g during a workout can up regulate anabolism, prevent muscle loss, increase fat loss and keep you going for longer. They are also great for recovery when added to a post workout shake. Multi-vitmain: this might seem obvious, but when training hard your need for all the essential vitamins and minerals increases, which can leave you deficient through a normal diet. Make sure you have all the bases covered, especially as a good multi is not expensive. Simple sugars: when making your own shakes, especially post workout you will benefit from some fast acting sugars like dextrose, vitargo, maltodextrin or paltinose to add to your whey protein. This is going to boost your recovery and amino acid uptake in the muscle. 30-50g post workout will be sufficient depending on the intensity and volume of the workout. All-in-one: a lot of the above can be found in an all-in-one shake, but this will all depend on when and how you are going to take your supplements. An all in one will have simple sugars, whey proteins, creatine, as well as other amino acids for recovery and anabolism. So weigh up your options and choose the best strategy for you, your goals and your training and diet structure.
