Power Enhancing Supplements
Even though neurological training may feel less stressful on the body than the typical hypertrophy training that makes up bodybuilding programs, it can lead to overtraining if you do not address your nutrition needs. I recommend taking advantage of the anti-catabolic benefits of q quality whey protein hydrolysate/isolate blend such as Muscle Provider for your post workout needs. You may even want to consider bolstering these shakes with a serving of Mass Maker to provide greater recuperation from your training sessions. Creatine Select is also useful for power building as creatine has been shown to provide an immediate increase in explosive contraction ability.
Stamina Enhancing Supplements
Glutamine Select provides large doses of glutamine and branched chain amino acids replenish the body during and post exercise. While this is useful whenever engaging in intense strength training, it is even more vital while including the high rep movements found in stamina building programs. While most directly applicable in the explosive strength programs, Creatine Select by Beverly International also is useful as a preworkout supplement as creatine has been shown to increase rep counts on strength endurance exercises. The phosphates that are a part of Creatine Select also acts to bugger against lactic acid build up, allowing for more reps before the painful muscle burn kicks in. The final stamina enhancing specialty product I would recommend is Ultra 40 Liver. This high quality desiccated liver provides protein, creatine and a variety of vitamins and minerals (particularly b complex and a very absorbable form of iron).
General Sports Enhancing Supplements
Traditional sports nutritionists took such a simplistic view of optimal eating, focusing almost entirely on energy balance. This meant they generally prescribed high carbs in order to fuel training, often recommending simple fast absorbing carb sources.
They now have learned (catching up to bodybuilders two decade later) that high protein levels improve the strength, energy levels, and recuperation of athletes, even athletes that are primarily involved in endurance. Protein powders such as Ultimate Muscle Protein, Ultra Size, and Muscle Provider provide highly quality, convenient protein sources and should be a core component of any athlete’s diet particularly if they are concerned with body composition.
Muscularity BCAAs are an excellent addition to your program and can be used prior to exercise (both in the gym and performance of your sport) to diminish the catabolic effects of muscle breakdown. Super Pak multivitamin/ mineral and EFA Gold should be considered basic nutrient support for everyone, lifter and not lifer alike.
Lastly, Joint Care contains glucosamine, MSM, and chondroitin nutrients that enhance joint health while reducing inflammation, allowing you to continue training or playing harder and for longer.
