Top 3 Supplements for Improving Athletic Performance
It’s no secret that the supplement industry is one of the most saturated markets in the world of competitive fitness. Often times the difference between a qualification and a podium spot can be an extremely fine line. That’s why it’s vitally important for you to use the highest quality supplements that will give you the extra boost that you need.
So, in order for you to get that extra edge on your competition, we’ve compiled a list of the most effective supplements to help improve your fitness.
We start at the top with arguably the most effective of them all. Creatine Monohydrate is the most well-researched sports supplement with over 700 studies, that have been conducted over the last 20 years.
These studies have shown that Creatine Monohydrate increases athletic performance as well as enhancing post-exercise recovery and injury prevention. It can also play a role in enhancing rehabilitation and increasing tolerance of heavy training loads.
In summary, if you’re going to take ANY supplement, Creatine Monohydrate should be your first point of call.
Functional Fitness Workouts will test athletes in every imaginable way. The sheer volume that’s standard in most workouts can cause fatigue to set in very quickly. This is where Beta Alanine comes into play.
That burning sensation you feel is a result of hydrogen ions that can make muscle contraction difficult and ultimately lead to fatigue. This supplement increases your body’s stores of carnosine, which can get rid of these extra hydrogen ions and improve your work capacity. An essential part of every workout in the Sport of Fitness.
Creatine and Beta Alanine make for a wicked combination that can help delay fatigue. Both of which are fully dosed in FUEL RXD.
Make no mistake here. Protein is accessible through whole foods and you should always try to have a proper meal when you’re able to. However, as is often the case with most athletes, when you have multiple workouts in a day or you need to run straight to work after an early morning session a protein powder can be extremely convenient. Protein is one of the essential building blocks of muscle building and repair, so when you’ve finished training, you’re first priority - after fist bumps and high fives - should be consuming a quality source of protein.
That’s why we’ve added 26g of protein isolate, which has a quick absorption rate, in our Recovery RXD post-workout. This will make sure you’re as fresh as possible when your next training session rolls around.
