What Are Post-Workout Supplements?

Post-workout supplements are dietary supplements consumed after your training session is completed. They are designed to support muscle repair, recovery, and growth.*

So often, fitness enthusiasts focus on what occurs before and during training, and they neglect their post-workout nutrition needs. Yet, it's not during training that muscle is built -- it's the time spent outside of the gym when your body recovers and grows stronger, more resilient*

SteelFit® offers a complete lineup of post-workout supplements to promote muscle repair, halt muscle breakdown, and replenish energy stores.*

What Are the Benefits of Post-Workout Supplements?

The post-workout window is one of the best times to optimize your intake of certain nutrients to facilitate glycogen replenishment, muscle repair, and growth.*

Consuming post-workout supplements may help:

  • Boost Protein Synthesis*
  • Combat Muscle Breakdown*
  • Replenish Muscle Glycogen*
  • Enhance Recovery*
  • Reduce Post-Workout Fatigue*
  • Support an Anabolic Environment*
  • Restore Cellular Hydration*

SteelFit® offers a diverse range of post-workout supplements to help athletes recover faster so that they can continue to train hard day in and day out.*

Who Should Use Post-Workout Supplements?

Just about anyone can benefit from using post-workout supplements following their intense training sessions.*

But some specific individuals may notice a more significant impact on their recovery as well as their subsequent training session when using post-workout supplements, including:

  • Individuals who train multiple times per day
  • Individuals who do not eat before training
  • Individuals who perform high-volume/high-intensity training sessions
  • Individuals who train for extended periods (e.g., endurance athletes)
  • Individuals who do not consume enough protein during the day

If you fall into one or more of these categories, you'll likely find that your recovery and growth improves when you start using targeted nutrition practices involving post-workout supplements.*

Which Post-Workout Should I Choose?

Following a hard training session, energy stores are depleted, and muscles are primed to absorb anything, and everything thrown their way.*

A top priority should be protein, which supplies the essential amino acids needed to repair damaged muscle fibers.* Our preferred post-workout protein is either Steel Whey® or Steel Vegan.

Steel Whey® is a premium-quality protein powder using 100% WPC-80 -- the highest quality whey protein concentrate available. What makes whey the ideal post-workout protein source is its high amino acid content, fast digestibility, and high bioavailability.*

Steel Vegan combines four different plant-based protein sources, including pea isolate, watermelon seed, pumpkin seed, and sunflower seed, to deliver 20 grams of protein per serving to help build lean muscle.* Additionally, Steel Vegan provides a complete profile of essential amino acids and 4 grams of naturally occurring branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) per serving to support muscle recovery.*

Another concern following training is restoring fluids and minerals (electrolytes) lost during workouts.*

Replenishing these nutrients is essential to subsequent performance and avoiding things such as dehydration, cramping, etc.*

Steel Fuel® supplies essential electrolytes and 5 grams of BCAAs to support muscle recovery and maintain optimal performance and hydration.*

Last but certainly not least, concerning post-workout supplements is creatine -- the most well-researched and consistently shown effective supplement of all time.

While you can technically take creatine any time of day, consuming it, post-workout might improve its uptake further due to the heightened insulin sensitivity and enhanced nutrient uptake in the post-workout period.*
