Bodybuilding Supplements 101

February 17, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 130

The physical training of ones body is not a walk in the park. Intense workout sessions, the tear of a muscle here, the twitching of a nerve there, and other related quibbles are the scars that your average body builder has to essentially bear. Thankfully, there is some form of aide along the road to that ideal body. This help comes fashioned as body building supplements.

A bodybuilding supplement is a dietary alternative used by those who are in the field of athletics and bodybuilding. The operative word here is alternative - not meal replacement. These proxies are classified into different groups; the grouping of the supplement comes down to the particular biological chemical processes affected by the proxy. Some of these proxies are as follows: protein, amino acids, fatty acids, creatine (an organic acid), just to name but a few of this products. These are disposed of either in powdered form or as a capsule.

As a body builder, the assumption is that your choice of a particular supplement is dictated by the subjective goal being pursued. For instance an individual who wants to build up muscle and ensure that torn muscle recovers properly will go the way of consuming a protein diet or amino acids; an individual who would want to shorten recovery time during periods of intense work out might elect to go the road of Cretin; and so on and so forth. A word of caution though, the body builder has to have more than a rudimentary understanding on the proxies that they are consuming. The points to ponder are as follows:

  • Foremost ensure that you know the ingredients of whatever you are consuming and their effect on your system. This is important because of the fact that some of these could have side effects on your system.
  • Secondly ensure that your steer away from supplements that might not be legal in the strictest sense of the word. In mind are products such as hormones -whose legal definition is dicey - the main reason for this is that the side effects from their consumption can be devastating (androgyny and other such related effects).
  • Lastly ensure that you get the guidance of a nutritionist, your fitness instructor, or a medical professional. This folk are best equipped to give you a run down on what likely impact on your kidneys, hormone system, and muscular system, a particular drug is bound to have on you. They are also best placed to elect on whether you are suited to even partake in any of these regimens (body building supplements).
