If you’re failing to supplement intra (or during) your workout, you could be short-changing yourself of potential gains. Whilst this is a relatively newer supplement category, an increasing amount of studies are justifying the need to supplement during your workout. Apart from the obvious benefit of rehydration, intra-workout supplementation can assist muscle glycogen replenishment, reduced muscle catabolism, increased synthesis of muscle protein, improved immunity, improved muscle growth & recovery, as well as an improved training intensity level1. Ideally & for the best gains possible intra-workout supplements should be stacked with your pre-workout supplements, post-workout supplements & a quality protein powder.
During and Intra Workout Supplements are commonly presented & sold as Formulated Supplementary Sports Foods in Australia. During workout supplements are not a sole source of nutrition and should be used in conjunction with an appropriate physical training or exercise programme. Not suitable for children or pregnant women. Should only be used under medical or dietetic supervision. Always read label prior to use.1.
