Intra-Workout Supplements are fast becoming one of the most popular supplement categories on the market. Intra- Workout refers to the usage of supplements WHILST training. Whether it is whilst cycling, in-between sets at the gym or in-between stages of triathlon, intra-workout supplementation can provide massive performance benefits. These include improved recovery and muscle repair as well as an increase in Nitric Oxide production which will boost blood flow to the working muscles. Intra-Workout supplements will allow you to train harder for longer whilst getting you closer to your fitness and physique goals. The Intra-Workout supplement category's popularity seems to be growing by the day. Staple Intra-Workout supplements include BCAA Supplements, Carbohydrate Supplements, Nitric Oxide Boosting Supplements and several combination/all-in-one supplements.
BCAA Supplements are fantastic for promoting endurance, enhanced muscle repair, an environment for muscle hypertrophy (growth) and increased protein synthesis. Typically mixed in water and consumed whilst training, BCAA supplements ensure you are never deficient in these very important Essential Amino Acids.
Carbohydrate supplements are great for providing tons of energy to utilise whilst training. Carbohydrates are the body's preferred energy source whilst training, so if you provide your body with fuel it will be able to perform at optimal levels, allowing for enhanced results over time. Not only do carbohydrates provide fuel for the body, they also enhance muscle fullness and provide the muscle “pump” that many gym goers chase.
All-In-One Intra-Workout supplements usually combine the above supplements into a convenient and ready to mix supplement for ease of use, rather than having to mix 3 or 4 separate supplements. All-In-One Intra-Workout supplements usually combine a mix of Carbohydrates, BCAA's, Creatine, Nitric Oxide boosters and perhaps a handful of other nutrient absorption ingredients or electrolytes, depending on the supplement brand.
