04 May Health Supplements: These 4 are all You Need.
For a lot of our students, the word “supplements” seems to have a negative connotation. It is associated with artificially induced strength, growth and fat loss. However, AQ Fitness believes that the correct supplements taken in moderation promote sustainable, natural muscle gain, fat loss and give you tons of energy to keep you active and positive!
Here are the supplements we recommend:
1. Isolate: a purer form of whey protein, isolate is perfect for those who want a low calorie protein punch that doesn’t irritate the stomach, particularly if you’re lactose intolerant. Protein shakes should be consumed within 45 minutes of your work out for the fastest muscle recovery.
2. Fish Oil: Omega 3s provide you with joint lubrication you need to avoid chronic pain from your fitness routine. Experiencing knee pain from too much time on the treadmill or an accidental landing in a power jump? Add fish oil in to your diet to reduce inflammation overnight and accelerate your recovery.
3. Pre-work out: get the essential nutrients and energy you need to amp your energy and endurance so you can give your 100% during a killer work out. Make sure your supplement contains Betain, Beta-Alanine, Creatine, Tyrosine and Taurine and B-Vitamins.
4. Green Tea Extract: We all know the benefits of green tea. Fat loss, heart-health and immune function. So what’s better than this millennia-old source of health and wellbeing? A concentrated dosage of it, of course. Add Green Tea Extract (GTE) to your supplement intake to reap the fat-burning benefits of drinking 5 cups of green tea daily.
