    Why Use a Weight Lifting Supplement?
    Copyright © 2005, Aaron Anderton

    What is the big deal about nutritional supplements for athletes? 
    Is a sports nutrition supplement going to make that much of a 
    difference?  If you have ever asked yourself these questions, sit 
    tight and be prepared to find the answer right here.  The answer 
    is an unequivocal "YES!"  Let me tell you why.
    
    The other day I was driving past a high school with my family. 
    It was late afternoon and the athletic teams had just finished 
    their practices.  About 4 or 5 boys were walking nearby with 
    their shirts off, and they were ripped!  Not an ounce of fat on 
    them, and they had some muscle also.  My wife said to me, "I 
    donít remember the guys I went to school with, looking like 
    that."  I told her that I knew some, but that she was right. 
    There is no doubt that the athletes today look leaner and more 
    muscular in general than they did 20 years ago.  There is a 
    reason for that too.  The biggest reason for the improvement in 
    the physiques of athletes over the last 20 years is the 
    advancement in weight lifting supplements.
    
    Some people like to say that training has changed dramatically as 
    well, but let me tell you, it has not.  Sure there are new 
    innovations now and then, but most of the "New" ideas are just 
    recycled workouts from the past.  Now, I am not saying that 
    training has not improved, because it has, but the biggest 
    improvement in the training of athletes, is that training 
    knowledge is more readily available.
    
    Some others would have you believe that the improved physiques 
    are due to steroids, but that also, is pure nonsense.  Again, I 
    know that some athletes use steroids, but a smaller percentage of 
    athletes use them now, than used them in the 1970ís.  Besides, 
    when you look at the athletes from the seventies, even the ones 
    who used steroids, the average athleteís physique then cannot 
    compare with the physique of the average athlete today.
    
    The biggest reason for all of this is Weight Lifting Supplements. 
    Protein shakes 20 years ago were low-quality, grainy and 
    relatively hard to find.  Nobody knew about creatine 
    supplementation, fat burners, and quality meal replacement 
    powders.  Many nutritionists will tell you that you can get all 
    of the nutrients you need from regular food, and they are right. 
    The only problem is that it takes time and money to prepare the 
    highest quality food into proper meals with the right balance of 
    protein, carbohydrates, and fats.  Many people have realized that 
    taking a multi-vitamin is one way to make sure that they provide 
    their bodies with all of the vitamins and minerals they need, 
    just in case they donít get it from whole foods.  The same holds 
    true for protein, carbohydrates and fats.  We know that some 
    forms of these are better than others, and sports nutrition 
    supplements address this issue by providing us with the best 
    forms available.
    
    Protein powders and bars are available now that provide a person 
    with the best, most useful forms of protein available in 
    delicious flavors.  You donít have to cook or refrigerate them, 
    and you can take them with you anywhere.  Quick and easy.  Can 
    you believe that there are protein supplements now that provide a 
    continuous release of protein into your bloodstream for 12 hours?
    
    That means that even while you sleep, your body will have an 
    endless supply of building blocks to repair and build new muscle!
    
    A meal replacement powder allows a person to consume a meal with 
    all of the nutrients they need without all of the extra calories. 
    This is fantastic for building and maintaining muscle mass while 
    losing extra body fat.  If you replace one or two whole food 
    meals with a meal replacement powder, you will be consuming less 
    calories, and providing your body with more nutrients than you 
    would have gotten with the whole food.  If you add a fat burner, 
    you will dramatically improve those results.  Many of the weight 
    lifting supplements called fat burners, are made to concentrate 
    on causing the body to not only burn more calories, but to take 
    those calories from your fat deposits!
    
    Creatine supplementation was THE breakthrough of the 1990ís.  The 
    idea that you could force more energy into your muscles so that 
    they could perform more work for longer periods of time was 
    finally a reality.  The next step was to add a form of 
    carbohydrate such as dextrose to elevate your insulin levels when 
    you consumed creatine, causing more of it to be absorbed into the 
    muscles.  Now we have new generation formulas of Creatine that 
    increase the effectiveness of the supplement while eliminating 
    the water retention and upset stomachs that some of the older 
    versions caused.  Creatine is definitely the top nutritional 
    supplement for athletes interested in improved strength, speed 
    and stamina!
    
    Weight lifting supplements are very affordable today.  Because of 
    the great demand for these amazing sports nutrition supplements, 
    there is a lot of competition between companies selling them. 
    This competition has caused the prices to drop, which is great 
    for everybody who wants a better body!  It is unbelievable to 
    think that we now have access to all of these great weight 
    lifting supplements, with more on the way everyday, and that we 
    can get them so quickly and cheaply.  You can go online and order 
    any supplement in a matter of minutes, and have it delivered to 
    your door in only a few days!  How can you beat that?
    
    You can find great deals on all of the best weight lifting 
    supplements at http://www.nlpbodybuilding.com/supplement-
    directory.html .
    
    All of this talk about food and supplements has made me hungry. 
    I am going to go drink a protein shake and have a protein bar 
    right now.  What are you waiting for?
