Train your body to go farther than you ever thought possible! Go in stronger and reach new heights on your next adventure.
This guide is intended to help you better understand the benefits of the supplements you are taking. Not only so you can save your time, energy and money by avoiding supplements that aren’t right for your goals, but so you can start benefiting from the supplements and get in the fast lane to your dream body!
The problem is there is no “one-size fits all” formula but we took the time to break down the products to help you meet your goals based on things such as age and activity level. Let’s crush those plateaus!
Weight management is the trickiest of the goals and we are prepared to tackle it with you! We are going to take a look at several factors from the start and then dive into the goal breakdowns to help you burn the fat that is slowing you down and turn the mirror into your friend and not your enemy. Read through the info below and pick up the products under the category that fits you best to achieve your goals faster.
The name of the game here is clean eating and the proper amount of calories. Some of the most important ingredients to consider with weight loss are those such as: Fiber, iron, protein, and scaling back on the sugar carbs here. Let’s start with calories first.
To get an idea of what you need food and supplement wise you need to understand your BMR (Basic Metabolic Rate), which is how many calories you burn just to stay alive before daily activities and workouts. We have the basic formula below. Add calories based on activity level and then understand that you will want to be in a calorie deficit of 200-400 calories per day based on your weight. One of the most common things we see from people that are trying to lose weight is they are actually eating too few calories and this is going to really shock your metabolism and cause your body to increase fat storages for survival purposes.
Female BMR + 655.1 + (4.35 x weight in lbs) + (4.7 x height in inches) – (4.7 x age)
To get an idea of what your macro breakdown should be we recommend 1g of protein per pound of body weight and then calculate your carb intake to roughly 30% - 50% of your total calorie intake, and keep the sugar carbs low! To calculate that out, 1 gram of carbs and protein are 4 calories each. Fat equals 9 calories per 1 gram.
Now that you have a better idea of how many calories to consume and roughly what your Macros should be, lets dive into the supplements that will work best for you!
For women’s weight loss we are going to focus on Collagen or Whey for protein, The bucked Up or MAN Sports fat burners, Deer Antler Spray for recovery, Greens for digestive health, and a couple pre-workout options with a smoother release and fewer fillers and artificial ingredients.
When you are working towards a weight loss goal, getting the right amount of calories is important and that is going to start with high quality lean protein. You can really go one of two ways here. Either a clean Isolate Protein (meaning no fillers and stevia as the sweetener vs sucralose), or a Collagen protein that aids with hair skin and nails. If you are sensitive to dairy, collagen or the Egg White Protein listed below (which comes in three flavors) are great options to not upset your stomach and help you reach your goals.
With pre-workout options the goal here is to go with something that isn't high in caffeine and gives you good doses of ingredients such as Beta Alanine and L-arginine to increase your energy, recovery, and help hold off the fatigue factor in longer workouts!
Which one to take?
Yeti and Dark Mountain are great industry supporting brands and both contain Vitamin B3 (Niacin), which aid in metabolizing carbs and using them for energy. Some people are sensitive to that however and if you have ever gotten a red itchy skin feeling from a pre-workout then stay away from those two. Pulse has the most science behind it but we recommend taking one scoop and Bucked Up contains Deer Antler Velvet, which is used in medications for centuries to help with everything from healing, recovery, and blood flow.
Creatine has now had over 30,000 peer reviewed studies done, all proving its effectiveness for building muscle and strength faster than those training without it, and the one thing all these studies have in common is that you must take it consistently to see real benefits. Now, the first main issue with most creatine powders, is that they don’t contain enough, or the right kind of creatine. Creatine monohydrate is the lone standout across all these studies, proving it works. Second, most creatine supplements taste extremely chalky and are hard to get down.
Kaged Muscle CreaClear and Bucked Up Six Point Creatine definitely stand out above the crowd here. If you're looking to get a blend of the different forms of creatine that help your muscles to different degrees, then Six Point Creatine is your go to here. CreaClear is a full dose (5g) Creatine monohydrate that introduces a microencapsulated process allowing the creatine to dissolve in water. This is a huge breakthrough in the creatine world because all 5g of Creatine monohydrate can be absorbed through this process where traditionally your body would only absorb a portion of the Creatine monohydrate you ingest, leaving you unable to gain the full benefits it can offer!
Incorporating creatine in your supplement routine is the most important thing you can do when your goal is building strength and muscle.
Greens are recommended as a source of fiber and iron supplementation. Iron helps in increasing your red blood cell count which literally helps you in every way imaginable. Build muscle, repair torn muscles, increase oxygen levels, energy and so much more. Fiber is the staple of digestion and Greens are nutrient rich to increase energy and gut health, which is the foundation of your mood, energy, and recovery.
