What are the best supplements to gain strength?
There are many doubts about which supplements are the best for strength and intensity gains in training, but without a doubt the best are pre-workouts, creatine, glutamine, amino acids and protein. Next we will explain why these are the most efficient to increase strength.
- Pre-training: the supplement par excellence that helps to gain strength and intensity during training, this is due to the fact that its natural compounds (taurian, caffeine, cyclodextrin) help to achieve a training with greater loads and with greater intensity. It is not advisable to use it every day, or in hours close to night
- Creatine: this supplement is undoubtedly the most used by athletes, this is because it helps both in the gain of muscle mass and in the gain of intensity and strength in training, it gives us that extra that the body needs to train properly and effectively. You should take 1 gram for every 10 kilograms of body weight, that is, if you weigh 80 kilograms you should take 8 grams.
- Glutamine: it is a supplement whose function is not to provide more strength if not muscle recovery, but we well know that without a good recovery you cannot progress either outside or in training, which is a vital supplement for load progression.
- BCCAS and Protein: these are responsible for the creation of muscle mass, so if we combine this with a good structured training, a good rest and a diet according to the gain in strength, we will progress in training both in intensity as in the loads of the exercises.
In stages of muscular and normocaloric gain it is easier to progress in the loads than in definition stages since being in surplus is help for this, in definition it tries to maintain the exercises with the appropriate loads and already trained with them.
