If you want to build muscle fast you’ll find yourself going much further, much more quickly if you pick natural supplements which are specifically formulated to help maximize your gains.
Supplementation can give you that leading edge you won’t get through good diet and exercise alone.
There are thousands of different supplements out there, all promising to bulk you up and get you the gains you’re dreaming of. But how do you know which supplements will really support your muscle-building efforts? We spoke to our mega-sized athletes to get the scoop on which supplements really help them get swole.
5 Key supplements our CrazyBulk athletes swear by:
1 Whey Protein Powder
All protein powders are super convenient to add to your diet plan when you’re training hard. But whey outshines a lot of the others because of its high biological value (which means it digests really well, really quickly in your system). This makes it a great addition to your post-workout shake because protein is important to repair any torn muscle fibers.
You’re best off mixing up a shake that contains at least a 2-to-1 ratio of carbs to protein. The carbs are used for restoring glycogen, while the protein kickstarts the muscle recovery process. You can also pack some whey into your smoothies to sneak some extra protein in there. Try blending up some vanilla almond milk, banana, a scoop of whey protein, honey and a handful of blueberries for a truly tasty post-workout treat.
