Step Two Learn About Supplements
A pre-workout supplement usually includes nitric oxide (NO) boosters, branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), creatine, beta-alanine, and betaine to boost muscle strength and endurance, enhance muscle pumps, and promote muscle growth. Some pre-workouts also include stimulants like caffeine to increase your focus and boost your training intensity.
Pre-workout products are often comprised of ingredients like BCAAs, L-Carnitine, L-Tartrate, and creatine. Taking a post-workout supplement after your training sessions may enhance your body’s recovery, promote muscle growth, and increase protein synthesis.
Whey protein is a fast-absorbing milk protein that can aid your strength gains and muscle growth. Taking this supplement before and after your workouts may help fuel your muscles through future workouts and help them recover efficiently from those tough training days. Protein shakes will also help you get in all the protein you need each day to build muscle.
