If you are looking to put on some serious size and muscle you are probably wondering, what is the quickest way to put on muscle and size at the same time? There are few ways to accomplish this goal. First get on a weight gainer protein powder that has high calorie and high protein per serving. Second thing to do is to take a look at cell volumizer supplements such as creatine, or a supplement that increases oxygen uptake and nitric oxide levels in the blood stream.
Studies have shown that these supplements (creatine and nitric oxide inhibitors) can drastically increase muscle mass especially when stacking with a protein powder.Compounds like citrulline malate, arginine alpha-ketoglutarate, norvaline histidine, beta alanine, creatine phosphate and creatine magnesium chelate are the powerhouse nutrients that improve strength gains in the gym.
Creatine will typically increase the body’s ability to produce energy rapidly. With more energy stored in the body, you can train harder and more often, more weight being lifted for longer periods of time means more muscle is being built producing faster results. It is an osmotically active substance which means that creatine will pull water into your muscle cells which increases protein synthesis. This is why taking a protein and stacking the two together gives awesome results for gaining muscle mass. Because creatine pulls water into the muscle cells it is important to drink lots of water so that you prevent dehydrating and fighting muscle cramps through out your work out. If you decide to take a creatine make sure that you take advantage of the substances ability to store more energy and hit the gym hard other wise the side effect to not working out while you are on creatine is water weight retention. You get a bloated appearance and loose any weight that you may have obtained because everything gained was just water weight and not muscle.
Athletes are now taking supplements with L-citrulline and L-arginine to increase the flow of blood and oxygen to the skeletal muscle which can augment strength and endurance. Increasing the nitric oxide levels in the blood stream brings the blood cells just below the surface of the skin giving more room for blood flow which in effect when lifting weights gives you a better muscle pump. The nitric oxide also helps with removal of exercise-induce lactic acid build-up which reduces fatigue and speeds up recovery time for your muscles.
Note: If you have an existing heart condition or abnormal blood pressure, please consult your healthcare professional before taking supplements to increase nitric oxide levels
