I advocate supplement use
I’m actually an advocate for supplements. A lot of trainers suggest that they’re “useless.” However, a number of research studies have shown us that supplements can be effective at the right dose in the right context.
Get your priorities right first.
Further, once adherence, training, nutrition habits have all been well established, using certain compounds to enhance performance might be warranted.
However, when supplement companies preach genuinely false information that isn’t backed by a large majority of the available science, it leaves a very sour taste in my mouth.
It is already very difficult for people to know what’s true and what’s not in the fitness world due to the plethora of misinformation that exists. Thus, supplement companies need to be held accountable for the message they convey to their audience and provide a form reference for their claims.
What supplements can actually do.
In general, intelligent supplementation can actually be beneficial.
Good training supplements contain ingredients that will allow the lifter to:
✅ Produce a little bit more force.
✅ Get a few more reps out.
✅ Do one, or maybe two more sets.
✅ Decrease perceived exertion or how hard something feels.
✅ Increase “the pump” which may or may not benefit you depending on your training status and age.
Smart nutrition supplementation for fat loss will probably:
✅ Decrease someone’s appetite.
✅ Sometimes improve perceived fullness.
Though, these marketed supplemented cocktails WILL NOT:
❌ Add kilos of muscle to your frame in [insert marketed time frame]
❌ Increase your fat burning potential by “targeting stored fat.”
The more outrageous the claim, the higher the likelihood that it’s false. For more information on smart supplementation, DM the page or contact us at www.marmina.com.au or firstname.lastname@example.org.
