Supplements are a great addition to an already good nutrition and training program. Nutrition and training are the most important components of a exercise program, with rest and recovery next to them. Once all of those aspects of your program are maximized, then you can start thinking of adding supplements to your program.
Please understand that supplements do not make up for improper training, or lack thereof, or a low quality diet. Supplements only work when your diet and your training program are optimal.
Here are my recommendations for supplements. I get the majority of my supplements from Bodybuilding.com or Amazon.com because they have the best prices. All of the products listed below are the exact products that I have tried myself and had good results from. If you have any questions about any of them, please send me a message!
All-Natural Protein: Whey protein is well known for its high amino acid content, bioavailability, and rapid digestion, making it the premium choice for post-workout nutrition. All-natural whey proteins provide you with the amino acids you need to build quality muscle without any added artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners. If you'd like to support your muscle-building or fat-loss goals without worrying about what's been added to your protein powder, try an all-natural product!
MRM Reload: Accelerates muscle recovery and stops catabolic muscle damage to maintain lean body mass. It tops off amino acid pools and accelerates muscle recovery, prior to and immediately following intense training and exercise. Maximizing your body’s amino acid reserves prevent deterioration of hard-earned muscle mass, reducing muscle fatigue, and extending energy/endurance levels.
MRM Reload: fortified with branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) is the ultimate muscle recovery formula designed for athletes and active individuals who want to minimize muscle soreness and exercise longer. Branched-chain amino acids cannot be produced by the body and must come from outside supplemental sources. The three BCAAs are leucine, valine and isoleucine. They are the amino acids that are burned by muscles as fuel. Both blood and muscle levels of BCAAs decrease, post-workout, which necessitates replenishment.
