Weight Lifting Programs - Why You Shouldn't Rely on Weight Lifting Supplements

 


Visitors: 230

If you're counting on weight lifting supplements to make up for an inadequate diet plan or training regimen, you might want to think about saving your money instead. So many people have found out the hard way that taking muscle building supplements is not a shortcut to gaining lean muscle mass.

Protein powders, for example, are relatively helpful supplements but should not be used as a substitute for a healthy meal plan. You may assume that you can simply drink protein shakes and build muscle, but you should get most of your calories from whole foods.

The bottom line is that everyone can achieve massive muscle growth by adhering to the basic principles of progressive resistance training and increasing caloric intake. In other words, lift more, and eat more. Repeat until you achieve the desired results. Only when you have mastered the fundamentals and are trying to get a slight edge in your training should you consider something like creatine. I say slight edge because these products will not do all the work for you. If you decide to go with supplements as a shortcut, you'll likely end up wasting all of money without much to show for it.

If you're now convinced that weightlifting supplements are not shortcuts to muscle growth but still that have the knowledge to train on your own, consider investing some time (and even some money) in a comprehensive muscle building system. Learn the basics of how to train, how to eat, and how to recover. Doing this will be much more effective and much cheaper in the long run than relying on the latest supplements fad.
