But what more supplements could they need in order to accelerate lean muscle growth? Here a list of them that you can take advantage of when you are looking at the fitness aisle and find yourself dazed because of the all-too-many selection:

But what more supplements could they need in order to accelerate lean muscle growth?

Here a list of them that you can take advantage of when you are looking at the fitness aisle and find yourself dazed because of the all-too-many selection:

Multivitamins

Let’s face it. Working out can be exhausting, and it also expends possibly most if not all of vitamins that you need to sustain yourself. Most people who are trying to build lean muscle while maintaining or achieving their target weight goal are vitamin deficient. In order to solve this problem, intake of multivitamins is highly recommended. Not everybody would have the time to work around training sessions and secure a meal. What the multivitamin supplement does is to cut that effort down and let you get the vitamins you need in order to sustain yourself daily. Be sure to take them in in between meals to be able to maximize vitamin absorption.

Speaking of multivitamin supplements, it would be best if the ones that you buy have Tongkat Ali. It doesn’t only make you feel pumped; it also increases performance during sexy time. Trust me; your lovey-doveys will thank me for recommending you this.

Whey Protein

Whey protein is another great supplement to consume right after training to help build muscle mass. It is a milk protein that is easily digestible, has a high level of branched-chain amino acids that gets to your muscles rapidly.  A simple whey protein shake or supplement is enough to help you in terms of performance and promote lean muscle growth. It also has peptides that increase blood flow in the muscles, which in turn, helps repair broken ones faster.  It’s so easy to use and accessible (this is basically, the macho guy’s milk after all) and most of all proven to be effective that a recent review article was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests that using protein as supplement during extended resistance-type training can lead to a significantly more increase in strength and muscle mass, than those who don’t. It’s so effective that gaining access to one is almost as easy as going to the supermarket, which is a plus point in convenience. It’s easy to use, convenient, and it works fast.

Creatine

With its highly-regarded safety profile and a good reputation of added effectiveness when powerlifting, creatine supplementation is usually what comes up on top of a seasoned gym rat’s head whenever supplementation is brought up. What it does is it enhances the energy production, boosts muscle strength, while sustaining better performance. How it does that is it increases the availability of creatine and phosphocreatine (Pcr) in the muscle, helping you maintain that high energy that you need when you are doing your high intensity exercises like weightlifting. It also helps you speed up recovery time in between sets. Long-term supplementation is shown to enhance endurance and strength in training, leading to 5-15% more efficacy versus those who do not take creatine supplementation.

Another study from a group of Canadian researchers concluded that creatine supplementation  together with resistance training increased insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-I) levels by 20%, and that is a good thing because it triggers the anabolic state of the body, which means more lean muscle growth.

Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA)

Not all fats are bad fats. Some are great for lean muscle building. Take Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) for example; also known as Omega fatty acids, these wondrous things help reduce body fat and assist in preserving muscle tissue. The easiest source of CLA is fish oil. Fish oil is an indispensable supplement with a myriad of beneficial effects. The Omega-3 fatty acids in them, which by the way are also very good for the heart, decreases muscle soreness because of its anti-inflammatory properties. For the muscle builder, this also means speedier recovery time. This supplement is even better when you increase your carb intake as it combines with it to promote protein synthesis rates, leading to greater gains in muscle mass.
