SBSC Fit Tip: My Go To Contest Prep Supplements #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle
I have been using Saturn Supplement’s products exclusively for over 4 years. They are one of the top respected supplement companies worldwide, for their quality and product selection. They have been in business for almost 30 years!!! In the supplement industry, that is HUGE!!! I am grateful to be a part of the Saturn Muscle Team! They have helped me, not only grow in this sport, but have had a huge impact in improving my physique every year!!!
I do have a go to supplement stack that I take throughout my prep. When I am in a calorie deficit, my body is working harder. I want to make sure that I am providing my body with all of the necessary nutrients it needs as well as macros that have a hard time meeting. These are my go to contest prep supplements:
One ~ Protein ~ Like I stated earlier, I consume a moderately high amount of protein during contest prep. I eat most of my protein, but I also supplement some with shakes. During prep I choose Saturn’s Pro 4100 Hydrolyzed Protein powder. I do this because drinking protein shakes is convenient. It is easy to grab and go. I am getting lean, quality protein in every shake. There is no added fats or carbs. This is great when meeting my macro needs. Bonus is that it is enriched with Branched-Chain Amino Acids and L-Glutamine. In addition, they have enhanced the overall effectiveness of this formula with their Full-Spectrum Vitamin / Mineral / Electrolyte cocktail. I know my body id getting exactly what it needs to fuel my muscles and keep me healthy and strong!
Two ~ Branch Chain Amino Acids ~ My go to is Saturn’s Aminos Pump 50000. It is heads and tails better than any amino complex I have tried! My mental focus is improved. It is infused with Nitric Oxide, so the pump I get while training is insane. And the overall energy boost I get keeps me training at full force, which in contest prep can be hard to do! I drink these during my workouts and throughout the day. When you diet, your body becomes catabolic, meaning it begins to burn not only your fat, but your muscle as well. It also decreases the rate of protein synthesis. Dieting and working out changes the metabolic effects of your body. As you decrease your energy intake, you also decrease your glycogen storage. Your body will become tired and will try to use less energy while training. Your body will begin to burn your hard earned lean muscle for energy. Consuming BCAA’s will not only increase the rate of protein synthesis, but they also increase the cell’s capacity for protein synthesis. Even better, they increase the intensity of your training sessions. Therefore, you can workout harder for longer!
Three ~ Vitamins And Minerals ~ For this I take Saturn’s Outer Limits. They are not only packed with all of the essential key vitamins and minerals my body needs, but also packed full of pre-digested Amino Acids, BCAAs, Digestive Enzymes, Omega EFA’s, Sports Enhancers, Caffeine and other highly supporting muscle actives. When in contest prep, you are in a calorie deficit. This may mean that your body isn’t getting the proper nutrients that it needs t function properly. This is where a strong multivitamin is exactly what you need. These nutrients are not only vital to good health, but also required for strength training and growth. Outer Limits has over 60 muscle building nutrients per serving!
Four ~ Creatine ~ Saturn’s Creatine Silk is part of my supplement regimen year round. I take anywhere from 20-35g a day. Creatine has so many benefits. Increased muscle strength and size, enhanced recovery, enhanced brain function, improved performance in high intensity work, just to name a few. Creatine benefits everyone, from athletes, elderly, children, and many more. It is always a highly recommended supplement!
Five ~ Thermogenics ~ I always get a lot of confusion about thermogenics. Many say, well I thought you said there are no magic pills? I will say it again, there are no magic pills. Without proper diet and exercise, pills will do nothing for you. I take Saturn’s Lipo Ex. They are an Ultra-Pure synergistic complex designed to enhance the body’s natural powder to utilize, energize and metabolize. I cycle them, 4 weeks on one week off. To allow my metabolism to rest and reset. I take them for several reasons. They stimulate your body’s central nervous system, this is why many get the jitters from them. They help promote lipolysis in the body, or the breaking down of body fat to be used as energy. They increase your mental alertness and act as a mild diuretic. With using the proper dosage, proper nutrition, exercise, rest, and hydration. These can be helpful during contest prep as your body begins to feel fatigue. It also gives a boost in fat loss. They are a small, but great tool during contest prep!
