Legal performance enhancers

Legal performance enhancers for athletes.

 

Are you looking to improve your athletic performance, without taking banned or illegal substances?

These days many athletes – even amateur and recreational ones – take performance enhancing drugs such as testosterone, anabolic steroids and human growth hormone.

Whether this is right or wrong is a discussion for another time, but what is obvious is that many ‘users’ are utilising performance enhancers before they have reached anywhere near their full ‘natural’ potential.

Try these natural and legal performance enhancers to improve your performance in both strength and endurance events:

 

Beetroot.

  • Lowers blood pressure, improves circulation and boosts oxygenation, improving performance in endurance events.
  • Increases insulin sensitivity and assists in fat absorption, aiding fat burning.
  • Reduces chronic inflammation, aiding training recovery.

 

Caffeine.

  • Improves muscle power, alertness and concentration levels, making it ideal for endurance events such as triathlons.
  • Reduces the perception of fatigue, giving athletes increased ‘mental edge’.
  • Was a banned substance until 2004 and is still monitored for in testing to this day.

 

Creatine Monohydrate.

  • Creatine is an organic acid produced in the body and used to help supply energy to the muscles.
  • Increases muscle strength and size, making it useful for strength training.
  • Improves recovery after both endurance training and sprint or explosive training.

 

D-Aspartic Acid.

  • D-aspartic acid is an amino acid produced in the body and related to testosterone regeneration.
  • Improves muscle production and energy production.
  • Boosts testosterone, which in turn improves red blood cell production, improving oxygen delivery to the muscles.
  • Inhibits cortisol, reducing the likelihood of the body storing fat.
  • Regulates sleep patterns, aiding muscle growth and general recovery from training.

 

Now you know about some of the best natural and legal performance enhancers, get yourself down to your local shop, farmers market or independent health food shop and stock up!

Best of luck with your training!
