05-19-16-AMPED-for-Muscle-Building_JIM-IsaFYI--1200x630

This is the second of a four-part series discussing how AMPED™ can improve your performance. In February, we broke down four common types of people who can benefit from AMPED to fuel their performance—those who are looking to improve endurance, gain muscle, improve strength and power, or heighten everyday activity.

What do your goals look like when you step into the gym? Maybe you’re trying to burn fat, improve cardiovascular fitness, or build muscle. There is a lot you can accomplish in the gym, and for many, building lean muscle mass is one of them. It doesn’t matter if you’re a man or woman, professional bodybuilder, or average Joe, everyone’s performance can benefit from building lean muscle.

Who Needs More Muscle?

In the context of performance, everyone. Building more lean muscle mass doesn’t necessarily mean you’re a bodybuilder or fitness competitor, but it is necessary for better strength, speed, and overall physical performance.

What Do You Need To Build More Muscle?

Weight training to build muscle exerts a lot of energy, so people who want to build more muscle need the fuel to power through them through a rigorous workout and the proper nutrition to help recover afterwards. A diet high in protein and carbohydrates helps feed muscles during recovery periods. Also, supplemental ingredients like creatine can safely and effectively help power muscles during workouts.

How Can AMPED Help?

Pre-Workout 

AMPED NOx uses vegetable extracts from beets, red spinach, and celery to support the body’s nitric oxide production, which in turn supports blood flow.† This is especially useful for longer weight-training workouts. AMPED Power uses a synergistic blend of creatine, Nitrosigine®, and citrulline to increase the strength and power of muscles during exercise.†

Mid-Workout

Your body loses a lot of water and nutrients through sweat during exercise, and AMPED Hydrate (formerly Replenish™) helps keep you hydrated while you work out. (You can drink AMPED Hydrate before and after workouts, too).

Post-Workout

This is a big one for building muscle. Muscles break down during intense exercise, especially during heavy weight training, and AMPED Recover uses branched-chain amino acids to support muscle rebuilding.† While branched-chain amino acids aid in the muscle-rebuilding process, your body also needs high-quality protein to help build stronger, more efficient muscles. IsaPro® contains 18 grams of whey protein concentrate to help feed muscles during recovery.

Additional Options

  • e+™ – Natural caffeine plus Adaptogens give you a pre-workout energetic boost so you can get fired up and conquer at the gym.†
  • IsaLean® PRO Shake – A high-quality, high-protein meal replacement shake to help you build lean muscle.
  • Ionix® Supreme – Adaptogens and natural botanicals help combat the negative effects of physical stress.†
