Sick of torturing yourself from dieting and spending hours at the gym?

How fun and easy it would be if you could buy a magic supplement bottle and pop a pill? Well guess what, we have a WONDER supplement that will solve all your problems. For only $79.95 you can have a model hot body overnight and never even have to break a sweat! Just call 1-800.
Okay enough of that boloney. Sorry for the harsh reality but there currently exists no supplement, drug or pill that will get you in shape without a proper exercise program and diet (unless you own a time machine). However if you are an a Olympic athlete and other average joe/jane looking to get in better shape using the proper sports supplements can help you maximize your potential. You don't necessary have to juice up or take some sort prescription power stimulate. The basic supplements of Creatine (especially Creatine ethyl ester), nitric oxide (or the more powerful nitric ethyl oxide), caffeine and BCAAs can do wonders if you time them right. 1.
Creatine Ethyl Ester You would have to be living under a rock if you haven't heard about Creatine. But what you should know there are many different forms of Creatine, some better than others. The traditional Creatine mono hydrate was effective at building muscle. However it came with a lot unwanted side effects including cramps, water retention and bloating.
To be completely effective it also had to be ingested with a large amount of carbohydrates Not exactly a great idea if you are trying to lose body fat. However the new Creatine ethyl ester does not require excess carbs to maximize efficiency. Creatine ethyl ester uses "ester orb" technology to make the supplement more lipophilic. This modification of the original creatine has a much better absorption rate and longer half-life than the original.
2. Caffeine The most widely used drug of the 20th and 21st century. So why waste time with supplements when you got a Starbucks right around the corners? Coffee is just as effective as the traditional caffeine right? Wrong. There are different forms of caffeine, especially caffeine anhydrous in pill form.
Caffeine can sharpen your mental acuity, increase your endurance and there has even been recent evidence that it will immediately increase max bench (by 1.5%). Opt for caffeine anhydrous which is purest form of creatine for maximum absorption and effect. There are many excellent pre-workout supplements that have contain caffeine anhydrous.
3. Protein Protein is a gift from God when it comes to calorie consumption for athletes and bodybuilders. Protein only contains 4 calories per gram compared to alcohol (7 calories) and fat (9 calories). Since it's slow digesting it usually wards off hunger in dieters and is essential for muscle recovery. To get your protein you could be like Sylvester Stallone in Rocky I and down your egg whites at 5 AM.
You could also gulp gallons of milk (which contains the slow digesting casein-.great before bedtime). However wouldn't it be easier to mix some powder in water? Pure 100% whey protein is very extremely important before and after strenuous workouts. Try opting for a whey protein that contains whey isolate, micro ultra filtered whey concentrate, whey peptides and all the essential amino acids.
4. NE2 - Nitric Ethyl Ester A few years ago l-arginine boosters emerged as a viable bodybuilding aid. It was discovered that the dilation of blood vessels could help aid with muscle recovery, endurance, muscle "pump" and increases in the strength and endurance. So far l-arginine supplements have been best thing since creatine. There are even further modifications such as arginine ethyl ester that uses ester orb technology to only further enhance the potency of this supplement.
5. BCAAE2 -Branched Chained Amino Acid Ethyl Ester If you are working hard in the gym or training hard in your sport you will likely encounter the problem of muscle catabolism. Over training, lack of rest and proper nutrition can be counterproductive and actually strip you of your hard earned muscle gains. To combat this you need all of the supplements above plus BCAA (branched chain amino acids). BCAAs aid in muscle recovery and also help activate the growth hormones, IGF-1 and can reduce cortisol secretion preventing muscle breakdown.
There now an even more powerful form of branched chain amino acid supplements called BCAA Ethyl Ester . This product contains Ester-Sorb technology to help improve the absorption. The supplement also contains a potent matrix of L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine. Okay are you ready to empty your wallet on these 5 supplements? Doing so well ensure that you will have that beach model body in 24 hours, done deal.
Don't fool yourself. The word supplement means just that; to "enhance" or "add to". It cannot and will not help you obtain your goal unless you are doing everything else correctly. That means resistance training, cardio, dieting and rest.
Easier said than done. However if you are serious about losing that flab and getting stronger/bigger you must first set a solid foundation of a consistent training program. After you found your base (and most serious bodybuilders and athletes already have) don't forget the details i.e. bodybuilding supplements.
