Bodybuilding supplements can be a minefield. With so many outrageous claims about sub par products that fail to even remotely deliver as promised or worse yet, companies unconscionably selling an absolutely useless product using the institutionalized fraud that is inherent in most of the muscle media it is no wonder.
The reality as we present in the Ultimate Body Success program is basically that there is a small handful of things that work quite well and the key is to know what they are, what brands you can trust, and exactly what the science says and finally to test it for yourself – after all everyone is different and even though you get a benefit, it may not be enough for you to justify the cost. Getting savvy enough to do this though can take a bit of work but if you are serious about your results then this is definitely an area to put some effort into. It gets easier with time though and I purposefully designed Ultimate Body Success to give anyone a fast-track to a solid grounding in the area of body building supplements.
Complex research aside though, it’s always great to see some ‘real world’ results – as always coming from that small handful of supplements that really work to balance all the hyped up crap that is out there.
I recently had the pleasure of designing a supplementation program for a promising young AFL (Aussie Rules Football) player, who was one of the best 200 young talents to be selected for the annual Draft Camp. Using just three key supplement weapons from my own daily arsenal to boost his recovery and endurance, he managed his all time bests in the key selection trials by a significant margin. Most importantly though the feedback from his brother was that the supplements worked great and that was what gave him the extra edge. Leading up to Draft Camp there had been interest from two clubs in this young player and the latest that I hear from his brother that after his performance at the camp, pretty much every single club is now interested.
On top of that, although he was almost certainly going to be selected in the draft, it looks like now he has moved up perhaps 20-30 picks or more, increasing the likelihood of being picked up by a good club and increasing his starting salary by a healthy margin as well.
The key thing to note here is that, supplements alone won't get you the ultimate, rippling, muscular healthy, fit body you desire. Even the best possible supplements in the market, that are backed by objective and unbiased, solid scientific research are really the icing on the cake - the 10-15% extra that really caps off the work you do through intuitive and intelligent training is what will get you to the peak of your physical prowess. Furthermore, if you really want to know what will skyrocket your results beyond belief, then swap your need for the ultimate supplement/s for the need for the ultimate clean eating regime. Marry clean, functional eating with intelligent training and that's what will absolutely deliver you explosive results. End of story.
