Protein shakes & bodybuilding supplements
Staying in shape is one of the most obvious reasons for attending the gym. And protein shakes and bodybuilding supplements are a common way to achieve the physique you're after. With so much choice, it's hard to know where to begin. Luckily, it's all in one place on eBay. And with thousands of products available, one of them is sure to be right for you.
At home or on the go
Shakes and supplements build muscle and add weight. But it's worth thinking about how and where you'll use them before deciding what to buy. A large tub of whey powder is great and will last you a long time, but it's not transportable for weekends away, for instance. Buying in bulk does offer the significant advantage however of being an economical way to purchase protein powder. Just buy one tub and it'll last you for weeks.
Protein capsules, drinks and sachets can be thrown into the bottom of your kit bag and used as and when you need them. Likewise, protein bars can be eaten on the go and take up very little room in your bag.
Protein supplement ingredients
The ingredients of your protein shakes and supplements are important too. Whey protein is the go to choice for many shake enthusiasts. It can be combined with liquid for a quick and easy way to benefit from a protein hit after your work out. Combine other ingredients such as fruit to up your nutritional intake too.
And while protein is important for building muscle, your body and muscles require energy to perform. Choosing a supplement that combines protein and carbohydrate is ideal. Carbohydrates provide a source of energy, so your muscles work effectively, otherwise, your workout won't be as effective.
Finally, it's not only muscle mass that counts. Performance and good overall muscle function make a difference. Creatine can aid performance and support muscle function, so you get the best out of your workout.
