A solid training program, quality food, sleep, stress management are my big bricks for optimizing my physique & performance
I work hard every day to kick ASS in each of those categories, and I trust a few supplements to 𝘴𝘶𝘱𝘱𝘭𝘦𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘵 that work, helping me take my performance and recovery one step further. My 4 “musts” supplements.
🔹𝐂𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐞- The gold standard of sport supplements. It’s the most researched supplement out there, helps increase strength, improves endurance, supports building muscle, enhances cognition & promotes recovery. Recharge is what I take post workout to get my 5 g of creatine monohydrate.
🔹𝗪𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐭𝐞𝐢𝐧- You don’t need to chug a shake right after you lift, and if you’ve read my posts on meal timing, you’ll know I’m not a fan of slamming a protein as soon as you set the barbell down. But, a complete protein ~2 hours post workout & evenly spaced throughout the day is important for building muscle When you don’t have time to put together a meal, protein powder is an easy way to get that protein and meet your leucine threshold.
🔹𝐏𝐫𝐞-𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐤𝐨𝐮𝐭- I like 100mg of caffine for some focus, energy about 30 min prior to workout.
🔹𝐅𝐢𝐬𝐡 𝐎𝐢𝐥- For health supps I usually want to know someone’s diet, history, lifestyle & lab results before giving recommendations. However, fish oil and Vitamin D are I usually recommend across the board as most just don’t get enough. I recommend to get those omega-3’s.
