If you want to achieve peak physical production, you will need to tend to your entire body. By strategically combining nutrients, you can enhance your physical performance, stamina, or recovery. That’s why your goal for supplement stacking should always be to stack supplements that work in tandem with each other (and food) to create the best nutrient delivery possible. By being mindful about the supplements in your stack, you’ll be able to avoid taking compounds that cancel each other out.
When stacking supplements, it’s important for us to focus on one goal at a time. By doing this, we’ll be able to avoid taking multiple compounds that have opposing effects, which will then cancel each out. So, here’s a look at supplements that you may wish to include in a muscle building stack, as well as the reasons why stacking these products will optimize results.
Protein (Whey and Casein): We all know that protein is the building block of all the cells in our body, and that its primary function is to build and repair muscle cells
Creatine Monohydrate: a combination of three amino acids (glycine, arginine, methionine). Has been shown to improve performance in high-intensity exercises, as well as stimulate protein synthesis.
BCAAs: made up of the amino acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine. Have been shown to improve Growth Hormone levels improving muscle gains.
Testosterone Boosters: typically a combination of herbs, and other botanicals that help to improve testosterone levels supporting muscle mass and gains.
Energy and strength go hand in hand. Therefore, a stack that enhances energy levels will also help you with your overall strength. Here are some supplements to consider for your energy stack
Caffeine: A central nervous system stimulant, caffeine has the ability to pump us up whenever we need a much-needed jolt.
L-Theanine: Combining L-theanine, which is a naturally occurring amino acid in tea, with caffeine may help increase energy and cognitive performance.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10): CoQ10 is an antioxidant that improves energy and strengthens the immune system.
Pre-workout: formulas that are designed to increase energy, endurance, and focus during your workout. You can find formulas with or without stimulants. If you’re sensitive to caffeine or already consuming a lot of coffee during the day, opt for stimulant free versions.
Intra-workout: formulas designed to be taken during your workout to help you push harder and longer.
Your body fat will need to be low to show off your hard-earned muscles. Lots of people think that bodybuilding is all about mass, but it’s not. Knowing how to stack effective fat burners to get the most burn for your buck is critical for staying big and lean.
Stimulants that increase thermogenesis, or simply body heat, such as Caffeine, PEA, Yohimbine, and Synephrine. Green Tea Extract is also considered to be a potent fat loss ally.
Nutrient and glucose shuttling agents such as R-ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid).
Amino acids that enhance fatty acid oxidation such as Acetyl-L-Carnitine or Propionyl-L-Carnitine also help immensely with fat loss.
No matter what your goal is, there are supplements to support you. It's important to create and outline the most important products and ingredients based on your goals. Stacks can help prevent side effects since most manufacturers put them together knowing what is in each one. If you are not knowledgeable about putting stacks together yourself then this can lead you to taking huge amounts of caffeine or other ingredients if you aren’t careful. Going with a stack that is put together by the manufacturer is a safer way to go. Remember to always consult with your healthcare provider before starting any new supplementation.
