Intra Workout Supplements 

Intra Workout supplements are necessary to keep the body's energy levels elevated during workouts.   This coincides with the need to activate protein synthesis, increase muscle recovery, decrease muscle breakdown and augment energy.  I personally look for ingredients such as BCAA's and glutamine. The most effective intra workout supplements have high levels of BCAA's and proper complex carbohydrate.  Again, I recommend that you avoid supplementation with sugars and caffeine.  I've talked about protein companies advertising at sporting events.  You of course, see Gatorade advertisement common in all sports and all leagues.  However, protein, for instance will do nothing to help your performance.  Sure, electrolytes will and are certainly essential to muscle function but, what is most important to athletic performance is energy and the #1 form of energy for the body are carbohydrate.  There is no better source of carbohydrate supplement than Vitargo.  That is why elite athletes world around, are using it.  Absorbing into your system within 10 minutes, it is exactly what you want to be taking during half time or a time-out of a game or match.   Here's a great quote by the BestWorkoutSupplementsBlog

'The Intra workout supplements make nourishment possible during excessive activity; without triggering performance costly mechanical digestion. Therefore, your muscle building potential will greatly increase in addition to other added benefits. In addition to during-workout muscle building, intra workout supplements are also designed to maximize your performance during the time it is taken."                                                                             - BestWorkoutSupplementsBlog.com

 

So - 

What is protein synthesis?  1) Basically: its the spawning of growth of new muscle

What are BCAA's?  1) Trigger protein synthesis 2) Supply muscle energy 3) Preserves lean mass

What is Glutamine:  1) Prevents muscle catabolism (breakdown) 2) Stimulate muscle growth 3)Boost immune system 

Why take Vitargo as my complex carbohydrate for INTRA workout?  1) Helps carry nutrients into muscle faster

Is water an energy source for my workout?  No. Water has no caloric value and is not a source of energy.  Read here.

What are electrolytes?  Electrolytes regulate hydration in our body.   They are basically salts that carry an electrical charge tells your brain to move a muscle.  Without electrolytes the cells in your body can not talk and thus, hamper performance.  A common sign of electrolyte loss or shortage: muscle cramping.  I used to experience it all the time when I played long hours of water-polo.  Wish someone had given me some Gatorade.
