Maximizing Progress: Our Supplement Guide for Maximizing Results

There are a ton of supplements on the market today. This can be confusing for someone looking to make progress in the gym, lose weight, or get stronger. What is good to take, and what is a waste of money?

First, identify with clarity what you’re looking to achieve and why.

Are you looking to lose 5-10 lbs?

Are you looking to get stronger and build resilient bones?

Are you looking for more energy during your workouts?

Here’s our guide on supplements:

  1. Add a protein powder to your regimen if you are looking to build muscle, lose fat, or improve your bone density.

We recommend to our clients to get a minimum of 0.7 grams of protein per pound of body weight (there are exceptions). It is typically very hard for the average individual with a busy schedule (demanding job, kids, etc.) to consistently get this amount of protein. This is why we recommend supplementing with protein.

  1. Consider a Creatine supplement if you’re looking to get more out of your workouts/lifts.

There is a negative narrative around creatine, but it is the most vastly studied supplement on the market. The science says it is good for you if you’re looking to get more out of your workouts. Some studies also say it’s good for brain cognition. The way it works is, when your muscles run out of energy in the form of ATP, creatine kicks in as a backup energy source, letting you get an extra rep or two. This over the span of weeks can lead to improved progress in the gym.

  1. Magnesium Biglycinate or Threonate for recovery and sleep.

Magnesium supplements are commonly used to support various bodily functions, including muscle and nerve function, energy production, and bone health. These two are better absorbed via the brain. We recommend these for people who want better quality sleep and nervous system health.

These are some essentials, although we have a much broader list depending on your goals.

***As with any supplement, it’s important to consult with a healthcare professional before adding magnesium biglycinate or any other supplement to your routine, especially if you have pre-existing health conditions or are taking medications. They can provide personalized advice based on your individual health needs.*** (This is not medical advice)
