Supplements for Strength and Power
When you train to optimise muscular strength and power, you know that every rep of every set counts. A fast and efficient recovery is essential because every training session should take you closer to your goal. What are the best weight training supplements for strength and power?
Creatine is the most thoroughly researched and credible sports supplement for strength athletes on the market today. All power athletes, from bodybuilders to power lifters, strongmen (and strongwomen) to Crossfit competitors, should be using a high-quality creatine product. Our creatine monohydrate is a pure creatine monohydrate with nothing added and nothing taken away. Simply the best, most trusted form of creatine which has been proven over and over again to help boost power, strength and recovery which should become an essential in your sports supplement stack.
All-In-One Protein Supplements
If your aim is to get stronger, you need to meet your caloric and macronutrient goals. A solid, all-in-one protein supplement like our All-In-One is the ideal way to do it. We combine high-quality whey protein, along with fast-acting carbohydrates (from maltodextrin) to ensure an insulin spike exactly when you need it. Creatine monohydrate, optimal levels of BCAAs, and quality glutamine complete the blend to deliver a post-training recovery drink that will get your body ready for your next strength training session and it tastes great too!
If you want to mix your own pre or post training shakes, you will need l-glutamine as one of the add-in ingredients. This essential amino acid is a must-have for any strength or power athlete putting their muscles and CNS under a lot of strain. The beauty of l-glutamine in powder form is that you can tailor the dosage to your exact needs, dependent on lean body weight and dietary macros. As always with Nature's Best products, you can rest assured that our l-glutamine is of the highest quality and delivers exactly what it promises on the label - nothing more and nothing less.
Another amino acid which should be taken if you lift heavy weights is arginine. Why? Because it is used by the body to create nitric oxide, which dilates the blood vessels to help you get a good pump in the gym. It also assists with flushing away lactic acid and other toxins as a result of hard training. Our arginine tablets are made to pharmaceutical standards, giving you 1000mg of clinical nutrition grade l-arginine per dose.
The final strength training supplement we'd advise for anyone involved in strength and power training is Multi-Guard® Sport. After all, the harder you train, the more pressure you put on your immune and nervous system, particularly as you get closer to your meet, event or one rep max attempt. Cover all your bases by taking this multi-vitamin which has been specifically created for strength and power athletes, with magnesium and antioxidants as well as all the vitamins and minerals you'd expect in a top-quality multi.
Train hard, lift hard - and protect yourself with smart sports supplementation.
