The Do’s And Don’ts Of Sports Nutrition Supplements

To reach the top of any discipline takes guts and determination. This is especially true in sports and perhaps nowhere more true than in the sport of bodybuilding. In bodybuilding, like marathon running extreme dedication to an itinerary consisting of extremely early morning training sessions and a dedication to a diet that demands refuelling almost every hour of every day is par for the course. Combine this with the necessity to withstand and recover from pain and injury and you have a recipe for what many people see only as a refined sort of masochism.

Thank goodness there are today sports nutrition supplements that mitigate the effects of the punishing training schedule, as well help athletes reach peak physical condition, lose fat and put on lean muscle mass. These sports nutrition supplements usually come in one of two types, those available as shakes (many of these are protein shakes) and those available in capsule format, many of those being fat burners.

As with all supplements there are some common sense rules when purchasing and using these scientifically formulated nutritional add-ons. Firstly, and perhaps most importantly, the athlete should ensure that the sports nutrition supplements are manufactured by a trusted name in the business. If your trainer claims that he or she can get sports nutrition supplements directly from the manufacturer and these are supplied in plain, unmarked containers, be very very wary.

Many sports nutritionists have claimed that there is insufficient quality control always governing the manufacture of sports nutrition supplements. Be aware that some black market versions of popular sports nutrition supplements may be adulterated by substances that can do the serious athlete harm. Always deal with a trusted name like SSN.

Training Schedule

Throughout my bodybuilding career I would say a big challenge for me was to prove that conditioning rules and not size.

I train 5 to 6 days per week. I prefer to train 1 muscle group per day and I totally exhaust that group with 4 - 5 exercises.
