Top 3 supplements when starting a resistance training program
This weeks blog I will go over the top 3 supplements you should be using in your strength training program and why. Even with a well balanced diet these supplements will help aid performance and recovery. The supplements below will aid in weight loss and muscle building.
Whey protein Whey protein is the fastest digesting protein ideal for after workouts to feed the muscle quickly. It’s has a high amount of essential aminos acids which can aid in muscle recovery and protein synthesis (muscle building). Whey protein is low in sugar, carbohydrates, and fats. It provides the most amino acids and protein per scoop, making it very economical. We suggest 24g-30g post workout.
Creatine Creatine is a molecule that is naturally in the body. During high intensity training like strength training or sprints, it helps your body to produce energy by producing a molecule called ATP. ATP stands for adenosine triphosphate, which is your body’s energy source kind of like gas for your car. Creatine helps recycle ATP faster between sets or breaks which allows you to do more reps and more weight which then promotes more lean muscle. There are many types of creatine on the market but we suggest creatine monohydrate because it’s the most clinically studied and cheapest in price. We recommend 5 grams before and 5 grams after your workout. Taking creatine Before aids in muscle endurance and after aids in recovery.
Multivitamin Multivitamins are a great way to get all your essential nutrients you might not be getting in your daily diet. They make multivitamins for active adults adding electrolytes, aminos, and performance blends that will aid in your training.
