Step Three Learn About Supplements

Duel: Supps

Pre-Workout | Protein | HMB

Pre-Workout

A pre-workout supplement usually includes nitric oxide (NO) boosters, branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), creatine, beta-alanine, and betaine, not to mention stimulants like caffeine to increase your focus and training intensity, boost muscle strength and endurance, enhance muscle pumps, and promote muscle growth.

Protein

Whey protein is a fast-absorbing milk protein that can help aid strength gains and muscle growth. Taking this supplement before and after you train may help fuel your muscles through workouts and allow them to recover more efficiently. If you're busy during the day, a whey protein shake can even serve as an easy meal replacement.

HMB

HMB (beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate) is a metabolite of the amino acid Leucine. Your body makes it in small amounts, naturally. Supplementing with it may promote muscle mass and faster recovery.
