Building large amounts of muscle mass is known to require three factors; training hard, eating well and sleeping good.  If you have these variables under control and are looking to add serious strength and muscle gains then keep reading!   It has been researched that certain anabolic amino acid supplements can be added to a routine to enhance muscle size and strength.  The supplements that accomplish this best are Creatine Monohydrate, L-Glutamine, L-Arginine, HMB and BCAA’s.

Creatine Monohydrate increases ATP production in the body, which is the primary fuel for muscular contraction. It increases the amount of water and nutrients inside the muscle cell as well as IGF levels in the body. What this means is more explosive workouts and faster recovery time; resulting in more mass! By following the program attached to this article you can expect to gain up to 8lbs of bodyweight and increase 20% of strength on all compound movements from the creatine alone!

L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the muscle cell and helps to restore cellular energy and promote new muscle tissue. It is the primary source of fuel for the gut, improving assimilation of nutrients in as well as boosting the immune system.  It will improve your recovery time between workouts, keep you healthy and increase muscle fullness.

L-Arginine is an amino acid that increases growth hormone and nitric oxide production.  It helps create new muscle tissue and improves blood flow to the trained muscles.  It causes a serious pump in your muscles allowing you to train harder for longer.

HMB is a metabolite of the amino acid L-Leucine and has been shown to increase size and strength by reducing muscle protein breakdown during training. 

BCAA’s, or branch chain amino acids, improve muscle size and strength. They comprise the three amino acids L-Leucine, L-isoleucine and L-Valine that work together to stimulate quicker repair of muscle tissue while training.

Consider following the 8 week program below and review the suggested timing of the supplements to create a program that will give you a serious anabolic boost in your quest for more muscle!
