Intra-Workout (76 products)

 

Intra-workout supplementation can assist muscle glycogen replenishment, reduce muscle breakdown, increase synthesis of muscle protein, improve immunity, as well as an improve training intensity. The most common supplements found in Intra-Workouts are BCAAS (Branch Chain Amino Acids).

 

Intra workout supplements are designed to be consumed during training, to provide muscles with necessary nutrients to remain adequately fuelled and to reduce muscle damage. Intra-Workout Supplements can contain one or a combination of Carbohydrates, Proteins, Amino Acids and Electrolytes. They can be easily added to a during workout drink.

 

Intra workout supplementation may give you the kick you need to push through.

 

An important part of workout performance is endurance. The best intra workout supplement should have something to support your endurance levels. An example of an endurance-boosting nutrient is the amino acid taurine. A 1g dose of taurine has been clinically shown to improve athletic performance in endurance athletes.

 

Benefits of taking intra workout supplements include:

 

  • Muscle Recovery

Muscle recovery is the number one benefit of intra workout formula. BCAA's ability to increase muscle protein synthesis means that you are going to recover faster from your training sessions and ultimately less downtime and more time training.

     

  • Reduce Fatigue

Amino Acid supplementation can also help delay mental fatigue by minimising your bodies output of tryptophan, which is a pre cursor to serotonin. Having high levels of serotonin will increase the feelings of tiredness and mental fatigue.

     

  • Muscle Sparing

Muscle tissue grows bigger and stronger through repairing micro-tears caused by training, however in some circumstances, your body can actually use muscle tissue for fuel in training.

 

Supplementing with a BCAA intra workout product during training has anti-catabolic properties which protect muscle tissue and don't allow it to be burnt for fuel, therefore sparing muscle.

 

If you're after a boost in endurance and recovery check out Mr Vitamins’ range of branch chain amino acids, electrolyte blends and intra workout protein.
