1. Caffeinated drinks Pre Workout Supplement! Caffeine rises your cortisol level and it increases your adrenaline, in this way you will be able to recruit more muscle fiber during workout, therefore able to lift heavier!

2. Branch chain amino acid. By taking this 15 min before and during training can help to improve recovery during training. BCAA is the only anti-catabolic and anabolic amino acid available, by taking it during training not only helps to improves recovery and prevent muscle from breaking down, it is also shown that after training people who takes BCAA recover faster. 15 to 20grams per training is recommended.

3. Creatine taken daily can help to increase strength and explosive power during training. It helps to replenish the ATP inside the body during your training. You will probably be able to lift more reps on the same weight after 1 week of creatine. No cycling is required for creatine, recommended 5 grams a day.

4. L-Carnitine is a fat transporter. It helps to transport more fats into mitochondria where most of the energy is produced. Especially Acetyl-Lcarnitine it can pass thru the blood brain barrier and this will help increase your focus during training as well. 1 to 2 grams is recommended.

5. Arginine helps to dilate the blood vessel so more blood can flow thru. This helps to transport more nutrient during training and it also gives you a better pumped. Commonly found in preworkout supplement, recommended about 2 to 3gram per serving.

6. Glutamine helps with anti inflammation. By taking it before and after training it helps to prevent muscle from breaking down and recover better during sets. 5 to 10grams is recommended

7. Fast acting carbohydrate (waxy maize) immediately after training can help increase spike your insulin level, boost your testosterone and reduces your cortisol level in the body and therefore making your body very anabolic after training.

8. Beta-alanine help to increase the endurance during training. It gives most people a tingling sensation on the skin! This is mostly found in your pre workout supplement but if you want you can purchase it separately as well!

9. Vitamin C taken every day, especially after workout can help to reduce your cortisol level. This aids in better recovery and boost of your immune system! I take about 2 gram a day!

10. Fish Oil, taken daily helps with anti inflammation, depending on individual the fatter you are the more fish oil your body is able to take. For me i take about 3 to 5grams of fish oil a day.

MusclePharm Creatine Powder Review

Creatine is normally found in your meat and creatine is naturally produced in our body as well.

when ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) is used it is change into ADP (Adenosine Diphosphate), what creatine do is by changing your ADP  back into ATP. ATP is a fuel for muscle, so the more ATP you have the more you can do. Creatine will cause volumization as well, which means it will pull water into the muscle. Showing increase in water weight.

What result can see get?
You will see an increase in strength by taking your creatine. Performing more reps and higher weight. This might sound too good, but this is by far the best supplement that I have ever taken.

Why choose musclepharm creatine?
First of all is the taste, it’s suppose to be unflavored but this creatine gives me a sour taste. Which I kinda like it, I don’t have to mix it with any other drink, plain water is okay!

Suppose to be a advance formula creatine so no loading is require unlike normal creatine monohydrate which require you to load in the first 5 days.

Not much bloating for me after using this creatine. As you can see the picture attached below.

Doesn’t really mix that well, will give you a sandy texture. However if you leave it there for 15 to 20 min the creatine will dissolve. Anyway it’s only 5 grams of powder you can easily drink it down so the texture doesn’t affect me much.
