When people start the gym, they are often looking for the “best stack” of supplements to use in conjunction with each other. We all have in mind what we want, but what do we need to fuel a good gym session?
Well, that depends on your goals. Are you wanting to lose weight? Are you wanting to add mass? Are you just wanting to increase fitness? Beast Yourself has you covered.
Massive Beast – Mass Builder
In terms of trying to add some mass within the gym, you need calories. You need to be eating more than your body can burn as this will help you build a nice base. This is where Beast Yourself Massive Beast comes into play, it has a whopping 1090 calories per servings which is more than enough to get you hitting your calorie surplus. It only contains 6.6g of sugar which means you’ll keep unwanted fat away. Beast Yourself Massive Beast also provides you with 60g of protein per serving, providing your body with essential amino acids. Protein and amino acids assist with recovery and prevent your body from entering a catabolic state meaning it will inhibit your body from breaking down precious muscle tissue to be used for energy. It also contains a great deal of carbohydrates which can be used as sustained energy release or to restore glycogen levels after training. This can be taken throughout the day if you can’t fit a meal in or it can be taken 1hr 30 minutes before training or used as a post workout shake to help with muscle repair.
Amino Beast – BCAA’s
Another very important product for your stack would be the Beast Yourself Amino Beast. It delivers a huge 5000mg of pure amino acids and also provides you with 500mg of Glutamine per serving.
Glutamine is found in your muscles and is distributed by the blood to the organs & muscle tissue that require it. Glutamine also has anti-catabolic properties that help prevent the breakdown of muscle tissue. We can’t stress enough how important amino acids are for health and fitness, they are one of the fundamental products that every athlete should incorporate into their nutrition & training regime.
Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s) contain 3 essential amino acids. Essential Amino Acids (EAA’s) mean that your body can’t create them but requires them. They are made up of Leucine, Iso-Leucine and Valine. If you do not have enough EAA’s in your system, proteins break down resulting into muscle loss and problems with repair. They are the building blocks of muscle and help with protein synthesis. Whilst training, during contractility of the muscles, muscle fibres are being torn and broken down which require amino acids and proteins to be repaired.
Amino Beast is perfect to sip during your workout to ensure that your muscle are being drip fed with the BCAA’s that they need to sustain growth and repair, simply mix a serving in your shaker with water.
Raging Beast – Pre Workout
Now let’s talk pre workout, Beast Yourself Raging Beast is perfect. It contains 300mg of Caffeine, 2g of Beta Alanine and 5g of Creatine.
Something to really get you energized and in the mood for training. Now, we could sit here all day and talk about pre workouts and ingredients so let’s cut it down to the main ingredients and the best ingredients.
Firstly, Caffeine! Everyone loves a caffeine boost, caffeine effects the central nervous system. It will shut down the effects of adenosine which makes you tired and drowsy giving you a temporary boost in energy and make you more awake. It is also proven to increase mental focus and alertness.
Another great ingredient is Creatine. The most well researched and tested supplement on the market which works wonders! Creatine helps with regenerating your ATP system. ATP is your bodies’ main source of fuel. Once creatine stores in your muscle deplete, energy levels come to a halt. Creatine also alters several cellular processes that lead to increased muscle mass, strength and recovery.
Another top ingredient is Beta Alanine. Beta Alanine help produces Carnosine. This helps with preventing lactic acid build up or the “burn feeling”. This way, it increases work load in a single training session.
Thermo Beast - Fat Burner
So you have a mass gainer/protein shake, you have an intra workout BCAA and you also have a pre workout. Now you need something to help keep your body thermogenic, keep that metabolism blasting while you’re training to shift some unwanted fat.
Beast Yourself Thermo Beast is perfect for this. It’s a very potent & high quality thermogenic fat burner, containing Caffeine, Green Tea and Bitter Orange Peel. Thermo Beast provides 400mg of Caffeine per serving which can increase the body’s ability to burn fat via lipolysis or breaking down fat cells. Additionally, it can increase thermogenesis, or heat production which then leads to burning more calories. Thermo Beast also contains 400mg of Green Tea Extract, which enables increased production of specific hormone levels that assist with the breakdown of fat, which is then released into the bloodstream and made available as energy.
Don’t forget, it also full of anti-oxidants making your immune system strong and keeping those dreaded colds away.
Micellar Beast – Casein Protein
Last but not least, Beast Yourself Micellar Beast.
Micellar Beast is a high quality casein powder and casein is very important. It is often referred to as the bedtime protein. When we sleep, our body is in a fasted state, meaning your body will start to break down muscle as you sleep. Micellar Casein is the slowest of digestion rates in terms of all proteins, this means it will drip feed your body through the night keeping your body topped up on amino acids and nutrients.
It provides a huge 40g of protein and only 0.1g of sugar. Perfect for anyone on a calorie strict diet. It also provides you with 8.7g of branch chain amino acids, this increases protein synthesis and prevents catabolism. Sleeping is when you repair and muscle grows, meaning you must make sure amino acids and protein are in your system before you sleep as you don’t want muscle breakdown whilst you sleep.
Truly, this is a great stack, everything is covered!
- Mass gainer/protein for calories, nutrients, & protein intake.
- Amino Acid powder for workout recovery and endurance.
