It’s important to get your supplement game dialed in if you want to make sure you are maximizing your training and dieting efforts. Proper supplementation is another piece of the puzzle when it comes to building your ideal physique. Here is my personal Six Star® supplementation plan that I use to help get results!

Pre-Workout

For a pre-workout energy boost and to ensure I get a good pump during my workout, I use Six Star® Pre-Workout Explosion pre-workout formula. Loaded with beta-alanine, creatine, arginine AKG and ultra-clean caffeine anhydrous, Six Star Pre-Workout Explosion will support muscle endurance and strength during tough workouts. The dose of caffeine in the pre-workout formula is clinically proven to boost energy and increase mental focus and workout intensity. It’s not always easy to get excited to go train – some days are a real struggle! This stuff is like liquid motivation. It gets me seriously amped up to get in the gym and train hard so I can get real results.

Post-Workout

After my workouts I like to re-fuel with a protein shake. Six Star® Whey Isolate Plus features protein that is easy to digest, mix and absorb. With 30g of protein per scoop, Six Star Whey Isolate Plus is lactose and sugar free, and has only 2g of carbs and 1g of fat per serving. Each two-scoop serving contains 24g of BCAAs (branch chain amino acids) and glutamine to help with muscle recovery and growth. It also tastes delicious and comes in a variety of flavors. Without adequate protein, your muscles just can’t recover fast enough for your next training session. The amino acids in protein are the building blocks of your muscles! I can feel when I’m not getting enough protein in my diet because my muscles stay sore after a workout for much longer.

Another supplement that I take after I work out is creatine. Unlike the other brand, Six Star® CreatineX3™ features 30% more creatine per serving and less carbs and sugar. Creatine boosts muscle performance by boosting ATP, which is the primary source of energy used during high-intensity training. Six Star CreatineX3 also features a specialized carbohydrate that quickly converts to glycogen when ingested, which helps replenish depleted glycogen stores after an intense workout. In doing so, CreatineX3 helps to boost muscle size, strength and recovery. Having enough creatine in your muscle cells really helps you to pump out those last few reps. It’s the last few reps that really count. You don’t build muscle from those light warm-up sets –  it’s the reps where you are struggling to move the weight and you feel like you can’t do it, but you push through the pain and get it done! That’s when you really start to see results, and creatine helps you get there.

Before Bed

Before I go to sleep each night, I take (2 scoops)  Six Star® Casein Protein, which provides 40g of slow-digesting protein to my muscles. Casein is a much slower digesting protein than whey isolate, gradually releasing protein and amino acids while you sleep at night for increased lean muscle growth and recovery. When you’re really committed to your training and you also have a busy life, it can be hard to recover properly from your workouts. That’s why we need all the help we can get, and making sure your body is getting all the protein it needs while you sleep to repair your hard worked muscle tissue makes a big difference in your recovery!
