There are a lot of things about guys but one thing I know for sure is that, we all want look masculine. Yes, you who just made that sound, you also want to look masculine. You might not have thought about that but deep down, you do.So, in your quest to becoming the next strongest and masculine looking guy the world will see, here are some supplements for you.
Mind you, these supplements are not food. They are supplements so make them stay so. Just bear in mind the saying that, too much of everything is bad. While you exercise, the supplements will help you restore some of the nutrients you may loose and help worn out tissues recover faster.
1. WHEY PROTEIN
Whey tops the list of mass-gain supplements because it’s the most crucial for pushing protein synthesis. Whey is a milk protein that has a high level of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs, No. 4 on our list). Bottom line: Whey takes the crown because it digests fast and gets to your muscles rapidly to start building muscle. Whey also contains peptides (small proteins) that increase blood flow to the muscles. This is why we always recommend consuming whey protein immediately after training.
Creatine is a naturally occurring substance within our muscle cells, primarily around the skeletal muscle tissue where approximately 95 percent of the body’s creatine supply can be found. The remainder is stored throughout the rest of the body.
Creatine is made from three amino acids: arginine, glycine and methionine. Anecdotal reports and scientific studies alike find that guys who take creatine gain a good 10 pounds or more of bodyweight and increase strength dramatically. Creatine works in a number of ways. For one, it increases the amount of fast energy in your muscles needed to perform reps in the gym. The more of this fast energy that’s available, the more reps you can do with a given weight, allowing you to get bigger and stronger in the long run. Creatine also draws more water into your muscle cells, placing a stretch on the cell that increases long-term growth. Most recently, creatine has been found to increase levels of insulin like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) in muscles, which is critical for stimulating growth.
Glutamine is touted for its ability to slow muscle-tissue breakdown during intensive exercise which may improve strength thresholds and elevated endurance. Those weight training will find that they can lift heavier weights for longer periods and train more often. Pushing the limits of the muscles inspires the body to produce greater lean muscle to compensate.
Glutamine also has a number of other benefits associated with taking it in supplement form:
I.Preservation of muscle tissue allows your body to burn additional fat; the more lean mass your body has, the more effective your metabolism is. When training to lose weight, the body will also shed muscle mass, so it’s important to slow this muscle loss.
