As the summer heat peaks this month, running season is in full swing. With your skin scorching in the sun and feet pounding against the pavement, your body is going into overdrive pushing you to your limits. However, the summertime doesn’t have to put a damper on your workouts. Taking care of your body from the inside out is a key role in your exercise regime. Whether you’re a weekend warrior or gym junkie, supplements are critical for you. Big Daddy’s Nutrition wants you to perform at your peak performance every single workout, and our supplement line has a variety of products that cater to your running needs.
Choosing the Right Supplement
The sheer variety and number of supplements can be intimidating, and with so many options, it can be an overwhelming task to choose what’s best for you. At Big Daddy’s Nutrition, we have a range of supplements that are specific to targeting different areas of interest. Runners operate on endurance and the ability to force themselves to take that next stride. Endurance and maintaining muscle mass are keys to a worthwhile run, and supplements that increase and sustain these two qualities are best to focus on.
The energy needed to push yourself during a run all stems from your endurance. To boost your endurance, BCAA (branched-chain amino acids) and fish oil supplements are the perfect choice. BCAAs are not produced in your body, so they must be ingested; supplements are the most direct way to get them. These amino acids boost your stamina and grant you the power to keep moving forward. Rule 1 Train BCAAs, 5% NUTRITION Drink Sleep Grow Watermelon 30svgs and NUTRA-BIO EAA/BCAA pure blue raspberry are some of the many supplements at Big Daddy’s Nutrition that contain BCAAs.
Along with BCAAs, fish oil supplements are another means of enhancing your endurance. Fish oil has a long list of benefits, but they offer significant advantages for runners, helping to reduce soreness. Fish oil reduces the amount of lactic acid in your muscles and helps to decrease inflammation. By regularly consuming fish oil, the length of your runs can be longer and potential soreness both during and after your workout will be lessened. Big Daddy’s Nutrition’s NUTRA-BIO Omega 3 fish oil is packed with important fatty acids that support joint health as well.
Not only do BCAAs improve your endurance, BCAAs conserve your muscle mass as well. BCAAs enhance protein growth, which in return increase the amount of muscle forming in your body. In addition to BCAAs, whey protein is an effective supplement that helps with muscle growth. Whey protein repairs tense muscles while strengthening the muscle that’s already there. Additionally, it’s a direct way of inciting muscle growth. Big Daddy’s Nutrition has a number of whey proteins: NUTRA-BIO Classic Whey, Rule 1, and even a completely naturally sourced option called Earth Fed Muscle.
Creatine is another supplement that aids in muscle growth. Creatine is a source of energy for muscles, as well as tissues. To properly function and increase in mass, muscles need nourishment. NUTRA-BIO 100% Pure Creatine Monohydrate and BLACK MARKET Bulk are two supplements that specifically include creatine.
Listening to your body and knowing what it needs is fundamental in having a productive workout. The way you treat your body before and after a run is just as important as the workout itself. Supplements are a valuable addition to add to your routine, and Big Daddy’s Nutrition has whatever you need. For more information, nutritional guidance, or workout tips, contact us today!
