Beta Alanine – What adding this simple supplement could do for your training.
I’m pretty sure if you’ve had a few pre workout supplements and felt the little tingly feeling that some give before a workout. When you get this feeling, you know that you’ve had beta alanine but are you aware what some of the benefits adding this amino acid to your pre workout regime actually are?
Beta alanine is actually a non-essential amino acid meaning the body can get by without it but that doesn’t mean we don’t get massive benefits from using it. No matter what your training and goals, beta alanine can maximize your performance and boost your results. When we say anyone who trains can benefit we aren't joking... Here is a quick snap shot of the people who could be making massive improvements by including this amino acid... Weightlifters, bodybuilders, mma fighters, cyclists, cross trainers, footballers and rugby players... The list goes on and on!
Studies, backed by universities show Beta to increase muscular strength and power, increase muscle mass, increase your aerobic endurance and your anaerobic endurance and even delay muscular fatigue. Delaying fatigue and increasing your aerobic endurance are very crucial benefits to any activity and will optimise your training sessions.
When we train our Ph levels drop. This occurs whether you feel the burn or not and hinders our muscles ability to contract and makes it harder to overload them. beta-alanine works to fight the drop in pH within our muscle and so you are able to train harder!
I usually add a teaspoon of beta alanine when I have my serving of leucine alongside my Warrior Greens drink in the mornings and then once again in my pre workout shake so around 10g per day. Previously I have cycled for about 8 weeks using Bodybuilding Warehouse Beta Alanine.
