Supplement for Greater Gains
Samson uses HOSSTILITY pre-workout on days when he trains earlier in the day. In addition to several high-quality performance ingredients that enhance pumps, endurance, strength, and more, HOSSTILITY contains 300 mg caffeine giving you a much-needed energy boost during tough workouts. On days when he trains later in the evenings, he will use BLOODSHOT non stim pre-workout to support more intense muscle pumps and ensure it doesn't interrupt his sleep.
During his workout, Samson sips on INTRA[R3] intra-workout to support his training. An intra-workout powder should contain fast-digesting carbohydrates like Cluster Dextrin highly branched cyclic dextrin (HBCD) to ensure you have the energy needed to perform and enhance muscle pumps. Intra-workout, also known as peri-workout, is a time when you also want amino acids. While research has shown branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) help prevent muscle breakdown, you need all 9 essential amino acids (EAAs) to build muscle. EAAs include the BCAAs, making the better choice during workouts and any other time of the day. Endurance and strength boosters like PeakO2 mushroom complex and betaine are also crucial for long, strenuous workouts, and electrolytes support better muscle function and hydration. INTRA[R3] intra-workout offers all of this and more, and that is why Samson prepares his intra-workout drink ahead of every training session.
Samson consumes two scoops of ISO[H1] grass-fed whey protein isolate as his post-workout protein, along with a banana. Post-workout is the time when you want to refuel with a high-quality, fast-digesting protein to help repair and rebuild the muscle you have just torn down during training. Intense workouts wreak havoc on your muscles, and they need protein to heal and grow. Grass-fed whey isolate protein is the fastest way to get a heap of protein to your muscles, and drinking it soon after your workout is over ensures your muscles get the protein they need to maximize recovery.
