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 outsideof 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.*
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:
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.*
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:
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.*
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.*
