What are intra workout supplements?

Intra workout supplements are meant to be taken during workouts in order to fuel the body and keep you performing at top form.Over the years, several science studies have highlighted the importance of following proper nutrition strategies during physical activity in order to delay muscle fatigue. 

Intra workout nutrition has been present in endurance activities such as cycling and running for many years, namely through the consumption of energy gels and drinks rich in carbohydrates and electrolytes. During long-duration activities, athletes lose fluids and electrolytes which in turn can impair sports performance and even endanger their physical integrity if not aptly replenished.

Thankfully, modern science has revealed that a protein-carbohydrate combo is a lot more effective in speeding up glycogen replenishment and muscle recovery than a carbohydrate drink alone. This is because amino acids (the building blocks of protein) can be used as energy source during strenuous exercise. Supplementation with either protein or free amino acids is key to preventing the body from breaking down muscle proteins in order to support energy metabolism.

Intra workout supplements help to keep the body's temperature at bay, speed up the resynthesis of ATP (the body's energy) and remove waste by-products that stack up during energy metabolism. As a result,you'll be able to exercise for longer and will need less time to recover. 

Best intra workout supplements

The most popular intra workout supplements are fast-acting carbs - such as dextrose and maltodextrin, and amino acids - such as BCAA’s and glutamine. 

Supplementing with dextrose and maltodextrin can be very useful during high intensity exercise in order to keep your muscle fibers performing. In the same way, BCAA play a fundamental role in ensuring muscle proteins are kept where they should be (in the muscle) rather then being used as an energy source.  

Glutamine is the most abundant free amino acid in the body... and for a very good reason. Glutamine is key to maintaining a strong immune system as immune cells are known to fed on this amino acid as its main source of fuel. Grueling physical activities can leave your immune system somehow feeble and unprepared to deal even with the weakest of infections. This is the reason why glutamine can be extremely useful for sportspeople.
