Training sessions where your energy just suddenly drops off and makes you feel like leaving early are like a right of passage. We all have those days. Some days you can push past the feeling and some days you can't shake it. Thankfully the last decade has seen a dramatic improvement in intra-workout supplements that combat fatigue, keep your glycogen stores stocked, and provide a steady stream of energy. While pre-workout supplements are great for giving you a much-needed kick to get you going, they do have a limited life. Intra-workout supplements pick up where pre-workout supplements left off and are taken during your workout to keep your muscles flush with anabolic hormones when you need them most.
Intra-workout supplements work by keeping your muscles adequately filled during training sessions and reduce muscle damage post-workout. The most common intra-workout supplements are some combination of protein, carbohydrates, electrolytes, and amino acids. Each supplement is designed to digest as quickly as possible and are often taken in the form of a shake. Protein, carbohydrates, and amino acids preserve muscle mass and keep your energy levels high to give you that extra rep or lap. Electrolytes keep your body charged with the right minerals to balance your bodily fluids, keep your body in the optimal alkaline state, and overall keep you feeling steady and strong. Without proper electrolytes, you end up feeling weak, shaky, and slightly ill. Luckily, ProSupps holds a massive stock of electrolytes and other intra-workout supplements to keep you in the fight when it matters most.
