One of the most common questions I get is ,”What supplements should I take?” There are so many out there, it may be hard to decide. Each supplement has a different purpose. I’ll share my favorite supplements and break down why I use and recommend each one.
In my opinion, nothing is more beneficial for you than a good, QUALITY protein supplement. These can come in powder form or a ready-to-drink liquid. If you’re not consuming enough protein, it can cause problems ranging from hunger to body swelling, to mood swings.
To ensure I’m getting what my body needs with my training, I aim to eat about 120-150 grams of protein a day. That’s a lot of protein and its hard to get it all by consuming meats and nuts, so I turn to using protein supplements. Here are some of my favorite proteins to use
If you do purposeful workouts, have goals, and are looking to build muscle, recover and take care of your body, then I HIGHLY recommend using a pre-workout. Quality (are you catching my quality vibe here?) Pre-workouts are designed to give your body and mind a boost of energy as well as provide your body with muscle building and repairing essentials (BCAAs, Beta-Alanine, and Creatine). My hands down, absolute favorite pre-workout is Pre-Kaged Krisp Apple, with Total War coming in a close 2nd.
BCAAs are branch chain amino acids. Amino acids are good for several things, primarily useful for muscle building (recovery). You can get amino acids by eating eggs, and meat but sometimes, that isn’t enough. To ensure I’m getting all the amino acids I need, this is what I use
According to recent studies, most Americans don’t get enough Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E. A great way to fill the holes in your diet is by taking a multi vitamin. Don’t be fooled by purchasing each supplement individually. Most vitamin supplements contain far more than what you’re body is capable of absorbing. If you’re looking for something that covers your bases 100% and gives a good range of vitamins, I recommend this multi vitamin from Kaged Muscle
By covering these essentials, you’ll not only be able to be healthier, but also STRONGER.
