In bodybuilding, everyone eventually reaches a point where their potential has been fully utilized, and all that’s left is to give the body additional stimulation through external means. These means can range over a variety of things, but the most popular method of improving your performance when your body is lacking it, are surely supplements. “Supplements” is a very general and broad term, though – they come in all shapes and sizes, and what you’ll end up using depends on your personal preferences entirely. There are some things worth noting though, especially if you want to make sure you don’t end up spending a lot more money than you were prepared to.
First, there’s the general-purpose supplements available at most bodybuilding stores. You should mainly use these to get your daily supply of protein – they can be highly beneficial for this purpose. One thing to note here is to be careful with the flavor – while it’s an option many people tend to ignore and just go for what’s cheapest, you should pay some attention to what your protein shakes will taste like. Plain protein shakes can be very unpleasant for some people, and some even compare drinking them to feeling the taste of sand.
On the other hand, the fruit-flavored stuff usually costs more money – so you’ll have to strike the balance between how much you’re willing to pay, and how comfortable you want to feel consuming it. Still, if you want the cheapest one, we’ve come to notice that strawberry flavoring tends to come out at the lowest prices in most cases, so look for those.
HGH can also be extremely useful for boosting your gains in bodybuilding. If you haven’t heard of it before, HGH stands for Human Growth Hormone, and it’s basically the hormone responsible for the body’s natural development when you’re growing up – things like building bones and accelerated muscle building, etc. However, the body’s natural HGH production slows down as you grow older, until it eventually reaches a point where it halts. This usually happens somewhere in your twenties – and it’s the point that most professional athletes notice their progress severely deteriorating.
Using external HGH supplements, you can stimulate your body’s natural production of the hormone and get the benefits it provides – which include, besides the stimulated growth, increased energy levels and mood, as well as better motivation (yes, HGH does improve your psychological state as well as your physical one!). However, one major note to make here is that HGH is a really double-edged knife, in that it can turn out to be very dangerous for you if you fail to use it with the appropriate caution. Treat it like a very serious substance – because it actually is. In this line of thought, you’d probably have a hard time finding pure HGH supplements as well, so you’ll have to settle for some not so powerful things – but if you do want to try out actual HGH, you should talk to your physician.
