3 Things to Lockdown Before Buying More Supplements

The following is a guest post from Michael Gregory. More about Michael below.

Supplements reign supreme in our current age of quick fixes and “overnight successes.” I’m going to tell you 3 very obvious things when it comes to your journey to a better body before buying more supplements. I’m betting that you’ll shake your head yes the entire time you’re reading. At the end of the article you may still mold whatever I say to fit your current internal dialogue, but I implore you instead to use it as an opportunity to take inventory of where you may be deficient.

I doubly implore you to implement a positive relationship between these statements and your supplement budget. Buying more supplements is rarely the answer. Meaning the more adherent you are to these principles, the more you may (or may not) spend on supplements. Otherwise you could be spending your time and hard-earned money on the wrong things.

My Favorite Supplements for More Lean Muscle

As someone who isn’t into supplements all that much (I prefer real food any day) some really do help me with recovery and performance. These are my favorite supplements for more lean muscle, energy, and overall recovery.

Since I still love to go to the gym and get in some intense sessions I know that I’ll need a little extra nutritional attention if I want to keep doing what I do. And I’m sure you’re in the same boat. The worst thing we can do is repeatedly hammer our bodies day-in and day-out without proper nutrition. Additionally, as we get older our system needs a little help to rebuild, get stronger, and improve on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. Think long term.

3 of My Best Pre-Workout Muscle Meals

Let’s get one thing straight: these pre-workout meal suggestions have nothing to do with pre-workout drinks. You know, those chemical experiments in a can? Who really knows what’s in them other than some underground, unregulated shady manufacturer bent on profit only. But that’s a whole other post.

These are tried and true pre-workout meals that fuel the hard work in the gym to come. Real food with names you recognize and can actually pronounce. I’ll say it briefly here without getting too much into the weeds: nothing is more beneficial to your muscle-building or fat-loss desires than real food. Period.

Favorite, Go-To, Quick, High-Protein Breakfast

I’m probably like most people in that I love breakfast. I wake up hungry and can’t wait to eat. With that said I’ve experimented with many iterations of a healthy, quick, high-protein breakfast meal in the morning. From getting up extra early and cooking eggs to prepping the night before with little success It’s been an experiment. Additionally, cooking can get involved and time-consuming especially when you need to get out the door quickly.

I finally found a muscle-building solution with a good balance of nutrition for staying lean and facilitating muscle growth and eating something that I actually look forward to. I’ve found something that will support all those hard workouts and please my pallet at the same time.
