Product recommendations for fitness goals
Today I’m going to give you guys and gals some products that I really enjoy for my workout routine. A brief introduction to the products I use are Cellucor C4 Pre Workout, ON Amino Acids, “ANIMAL” Vitamin Pack, Dymatize Nutrition Protein Shake, and Now Sports Carbo Gain. As you may have noticed, I don’t have a specific brand that I use over and over again. This is due to my personal body type and reasons, each person will feel differently with each product, so there are no “right” product supplements to use. These are just the ones that I have found to be most beneficial.
Let’s start with Cellucor’s C4 Pre-Workout Watermelon Flavor, this is a powerhouse of vitamins and minerals needed to get the body going for a maximum impact workout. It’s used about an hour before the gym, as if pre-workout didn’t specify enough, the main ingredients used are what’s called the explosive energy blend. A blend of caffeine anhydrous, velvet bean seed extract, and tetramethyluric acid. This blend gives you a huge energy boost for the gym, so you can push yourself faster and longer. But be careful with the dosage, start small and gradually increase.
Next, I’m going to supplement ON’s Amino Acid. The amino acid is very useful for recovery and muscle development. The best part about amino acids is that you can drink them anytime you need a little pick-me-up. In the morning, afternoon or evening, before, during and after the gym. Going beyond 3 to 4 servings on any given day is not recommended. A body needs to have multiple sources of amino acids.
Next up would be the ANIMAL vitamin pack. This pack is a blend of several performance vitamins, antioxidants, digestive enzymes, and even more amino acids! There are so many vitamins in this pack that you could spend hours just listing them. The ANIMAL vitamin pack is what I use to finish a workout to replenish my body. But you can also eat them before or during a workout to give you that much-needed boost.
The last two supplements I will talk about are Dymatize Nutrition’s Protein Shake and Now Sports Cardo Gain. It is better to use these products at the same time. The protein shake contains 21 grams of protein, 130 calories, 4 grams of basic vitamins, and only 4 grams of sugar. While the Carbo Gainer has 63 grams of carbohydrates and 2 grams of sugar. With this combination it creates a source of energy for muscle repair and growth. Once again, these types of supplements are not really necessary for beginners and definitely not for those looking to lose weight. These are for mass gainers primarily.
