I’m starting out the 2017 New Year with a new Performance and Recovery Supplement Stack. This covers pre workout and post workout supplements.
Of course the types of supplements remain the same, but I’m trying a new protein and going back to a pre workout that I haven’t taken in a while.
Jan 2017 Supplements
- BSN Syntha-6 Protein
- Scivation Xtend BCAAs
- Universal Animal Pak
- MusclePharm Assault Pre Workout
Pre and Post Workout
The Assault is a solid pre workout supplement, at least for me. The effects from the pre workout I was taking prior to Assault had worn off. I think this happens with most performance enhancing and energy boosting supplements.
I preach this all the time, so I’ll say it again. Your ability to build muscle is mostly based on recovery. That’s why I’m big on protein and amino acids. Supplements like Syntha 6 (or any protein powder) allow you to get fast-digesting protein immediately post workout. And branched chain amino acid (BCAA) supplements like Xtend allow you to increase protein synthesis during your workouts. This keeps you in an anabolic state and ensures proper recovery.
My Supplement Stacks – 2017
I keep my supplement stacks simple. It’s all based around performance and recovery, more so recovery.
For 2017, I plan to continue to stick to the basic supplements. A pre workout is always in the mix because I train in the early mornings. I need that kick. Plus I like the effects on mental focus and the pumps.
The recovery side will remain as protein, amino acids, and vitamins. I’ll throw in a test booster or fat burner from time to time as well (check out my Test Booster Fat Burner Stack).
