The Supplements You ACTUALLY Need Starting Out 💊
What’s up?...more like what’s SUPP😉💊
When I was first starting out on my fitness journey, I was completely overwhelmed when it came to supplements. Which ones do I use? What do they all do? What happens if I don’t use them? Which ones are worth my money? I seriously was clueless and relied a lot on family, friends, websites and reviews to point me in the right direction.
So here’s what I think of some of the most popular supplements out there right now, in hopes to give you a little more direction than I had starting out. 💃🏼
Ok, let’s break it down down now 👇🏼
PRE WORKOUT: primarily based from caffeine but aids in energy, focus, pump and this one specifically doesn’t make me tingle which I love. If you’re working out early morning/late nights and need a little extra kick to get your lift on, this is one to consider adding to your stack.
BCAAS: stands for branch chain amino acids and are essential in muscle recovery, endurance and hydration. If you’re just starting out in your supplement stack, this isn’t one I would rush to get. Reason being, it’s not an essential supplement if you’re eating a high protein diet. Our bodies can’t make the BCAAs it needs for recovery on its own, so it is important to source them from somewhere which is why a high protein diet and training go hand in hand.
HIGH VOLUME: If you’re someone who limits caffeine or just doesn’t want to have a caffeinated pre-workout, this is the product for you. I’ve never tried another product like this one and it’s one of my holy grails 🙌🏼 this is able to be stacked with a caffeinated pwo and also adds serious pump 🤤
CREATINE: if you’re reading this, you can benefit from using creatine. This helps your muscles recover quickly during exercise, improves performance, reduces fatigue, improve brain function. speeds up muscle growth and seriously SO MUCH MORE 🙌🏼
Hope you guys learned a little bit more about some of my favorites today and hopefully gave you some clarity here 🤓
Do you have a product that is your absolute holy grail?! If yes I would LOVE to know what it is, I’m always game for trying new products!💙
