The Secret Weapon for Performance

 Pre-Training

  1. Kamikaze – Science shows ingredients such as caffeine, beta alanine and betaine reduce perceived working efforts and increase fatigue resistance. Kamikaze has it all! The combination of powerful ingredients makes it one of the most advanced pre-workouts on the market, guaranteed to push you towards reaching your performance goals and taking your training to the next level!

  2. Carbs - Carbohydrates are the fuel to your fire. Give yourself a quick top up of around 20-40g of simple rather than complex carbohydrates around 30-60 minutes before you hit the gym to give your muscles easily accessible energy – watch your performance peak!

  3. Creatine - Creatine is one of the most well-known, reputable and highly research backed supplements in the world that is highly beneficial for performance. Creatine is found in muscle tissue and is used to create what is called AT, the energy carrying molecule that fuels your workouts. The more creatine, the more energy, the more force, power and strength you’ll have! By adding Athletic Sports Creatine into your pre-workout drink, you’re guaranteed to see results

Intra-Training

  1. BCAAs: Athletic Sport Aminos can be a fantastic source of amino acids during training to reduce muscle breakdown and add to your protein consumption throughout the day.

  2. Carbohydrates: If you are training over 90 minutes, quick absorbing or simple carbohydrates can be extremely helpful to ensure you are sustaining the right amount of energy throughout your whole session. Examples of intra-training carbs can be orange juice, sports drink, ripe banana or lollies. Remember, sports nutrition on occasions looks a little different to general health nutrition.

 

Post-Training

  1. Protein: Ensuring you’re repairing muscle tissue fibres; your post training meal should consist of a good quality source of protein. Aiming to have around 0.4g/kg of body weight is ideal. Smoothies are a quick and easy post training meal. Adding in a scoop of Athletic Sports Whey + Collagen Protein is a great addition to a healthy and nutritious post training smoothie.

  2. Carbohydrates: Replenishing your muscle carbohydrate stores is vital for recovery. It will also reduce the risk of cravings later on. Science shows a 2:1 ratio of carbs and protein, therefore, 0.8g/kg of body weight, is an adequate target for post training replenishment.
