What is an Intra Workout Supplement?
An intra workout supplement is a supplement you take to help support endurance, replenish essential nutrients and increase your muscle mass during your work out. The most popular ingredients to look out for in your intra workout are branch chain amino acids (BCAA
), these include leucine, isoleucine and valine.
How is an Intra Workout Supplement Used?
As the name of the supplement implies, an intra workout supplement is taken during your workouts. A popular way to take your intra workout is half of the supplement before you train, and then add the other half to your water bottle/shaker while you train.
How do Amino Acids Work?
Amino acids are the building blocks of muscles, branched-chain amino acids (particularly leucine) stimulate protein synthesis, they also support your body by reducing the rate of protein
breakdown. Amino acids both build and repair muscles, so it is essential to incorporate them into your daily routine to get the most out of your training and experience the best results.
Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s) are very well established and are regarded as one of the most beneficial and effective supplements in the sports nutrition industry.
If you are looking to pack on muscle mass, increase energy naturally and speed up your recovery we strongly suggest incorporating BCAA’s into your routine.
