BEST Supplements for Muscle Growth 2018
So you want to find the right natural supplements to help you build muscle faster but you find yourself stuck and confused because of the absurd amount of supplements and supplement companies out there to choose from between MuscleTech, Optimum Nutrition, Gaspari, mhp, nutrex and the list goes on and on. And this is without mentioning the fact that each one of these companies also has a bunch of different forms of protein different forms of creatine and a whole ton of additional supplements that you can choose from.
Now add on top of that the fact that you have supplement advertisers with some of the biggest pockets in the fitness industry blasting you with ads telling you that you NEED certain supplements. You also have some Fitness Experts and fitness gurus that are sponsored and they depend on that money so they have to push their supplements. This leads to many people especially young guys buying a whole bunch of different supplements that they don’t need but regardless they wind up easily spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars just to have an expensive piss. Trust me I know about this because I’ve been there. I used to have a whole dresser with every supplement and vitamin from A to Z. Now I want to share with you guys exactly what I learned and exactly what natural supplements you actually need that will have minimal side effects and maximum gains. Before I start I just want to say I do not have any kind of sponsorship whatsoever, not supplement wise or anything I don’t need it because I own a couple gyms so I’m able to come here on YouTube and speak freely about which supplements you should actually take. Part of that freedom allows me to tell you right off the bat that building muscle is waaaaaaaay more dependent on your nutrition…. what you eat and how much of it you eat then it is dependent on the supplements you take. Supplements WILL give you a boost….of maybe………………. they might make up for 5% of your results that’s it. 5 percent could be all you need to take it to take it to the next level but you will never take it to the next level with supplements alone. Okay so now that you know the truth about supplements the first one that you want to get is protein powder. When you do intense bodybuilding workouts in which you’re trying purposely to break down your muscles you’re going to need one gram of protein per pound of body weight. Drop lower like three-quarters of a gram of protein per pound of body weight and you’ll still be fine. Taking protein powder is not just going to build muscle. I know that might seem obvious to some of you but trust me I work with a lot of people so I have to clarify it’s not just going to build muscle just by taking it. The protein shakes are just there to help you meet your protein requirements for the day. Keep in mind the protein that you get from real food is a lot more beneficial for building muscle so the majority of your protein should be still coming from real food. I definitely don’t recommend that you take more than two protein shakes a day. As far as the protein shakes you can choose from so many different ones. And I don’t want to confuse you so I’m just going to keep this simple. If you’re looking for a protein powder to take after your workout you want to go with a whey protein isolate. If you want a protein as a meal replacement you want to go for the casein because it’s a lot slower digesting sometimes taking up to 4 to 6 hours to digest. So the protein will release slower more like real food. As far as hardgainers you don’t need them please don’t waste your money on them. You can start with your protein powder in a blender and then add a cup of oatmeal, three to four whole soft-boiled eggs, a tablespoon of regular sugar for flavor, a tablespoon of coconut oil, and then add high-calorie almond milk, cashew milk or even whole milk if you’re not lactose intolerant. It’ll be a cheaper and a far more effective HardGainer Shake
