MUSCLE BUILDING STACK
When stacking supplements, it’s important for us to focus on one goal at a time. By doing this, we’ll be able to avoid taking multiple compounds that have opposing effects, which will then cancel each out. So, here’s a look at supplements that you may wish to include in a muscle building stack, as well as the reasons why stacking these products will optimize results.
● Protein (Whey and Casein): We all know that protein is the building block of all the cells in our body, and that its primary function is to build and repair muscle cells
● Creatine Monohydrate: a combination of three amino acids (glycine, arginine, methionine). Has been shown to improve performance in high-intensity exercises, as well as stimulate protein synthesis.
● BCAAs: made up of the amino acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine. Have been shown to improve Growth Hormone levels improving muscle gains.
● Testosterone Boosters: typically a combination of herbs, and other botanicals that help to improve testosterone levels supporting muscle mass and gains.
Energy and strength go hand in hand. Therefore, a stack that enhances energy levels will also help you with your overall strength. Here are some supplements to consider for your energy stack
● Caffeine: A central nervous system stimulant, caffeine has the ability to pump us up whenever we need a much-needed jolt.
● L-Theanine: Combining L-theanine, which is a naturally occurring amino acid in tea, with caffeine may help increase energy and cognitive performance.
● Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10): CoQ10 is an antioxidant that improves energy and strengthens the immune system.
● Pre-workout: formulas that are designed to increase energy, endurance, and focus during your workout. You can find formulas with or without stimulants. If you’re sensitive to caffeine or already consuming a lot of coffee during the day, opt for stimulant free versions.
● Intra-workout: formulas designed to be taken during your workout to help you push harder and longer.
