The Fat Burning Supplement’s
The supplements for phase three of the abercrombie workout need to accomplish a few things: 1) help preserve muscle while dieting, 2) increase fat loss, 3) increase energy levels while carbohydrate consumption is low. The supplement stack that was designed specifically to meet these goals is made up of Whey Protein, Glutamine, and L-Carnitine
Whey Protein made the list again, who would of guessed. Honestly by know we know that whey protein is an integral part of every workout program and it’s the key to giving your body the materials it needs to build muscle. We’ve been over it enough times that I’m sure you know more about whey protein then you would ever need to know, so we’ll just leave it at that, most likely you still have half a tub full from phase two so don’t stop using it now.
What creatine is to weight gain, glutamine is to maintaining muscle during a cut. Glutamine is another powerful, naturally occurring amino acid that helps to preserve muscle while speeding overall muscle recovery due to it’s ability to increase protein synthesis and block cortisone induced muscle catabolism.
Glutamine is so effective at boosting the body’s healing capabilities that doctors give it to critical burn patients to help them heal as fast as possible…. if doctors give it to victims of severe burns you can imagine what it’s able to do for broken down muscle tissue during a fitness model workout.
As for a specfic glutamine supplement i recommend, as long as it’s 100% pure glutamine it doesn’t matter what brand you use. Personally i use Bulk Supplements Glutamine since it’s pharmaceutical grade glutamine and sold at a great price. Like creatine, just get a pure quality product. Don’t overpay for something that isn’t going to generate better results, use that money to buy new clothes or better food!
L-Carnitine is about the closest thing you’ll find to a miracle fat loss supplement. Why, because l-carnitine has the ability to force the body to convert fat into energy and guess what, just like every other supplement in the abercrombie workout it’s completely safe and all natural. L-Carnitine is the perfect supplement when on a cut due to it’s ability to increase energy levels by burning body fat, essentially hitting two birds with one stone.
A bonus benefit from l-carnitine is its ability to increase the brain’s functioning resulting in higher concentration levels and quicker reactions. This is beneficial for both athletic performance and weight training performance as it helps to keep you “in the zone” while your training.
Just like glutamine it doesn’t matter what brand L-Carnitine you use as long as it is 100% pure L-Carnitine. So i personally recommend Optimum Nutrition’s L-Carnitine due to its great value and high quality.
Just like whey protein, a multi-vitamin is a staple supplement through out the entire abercrombie fitness routine. Without the right levels of vitamins and minerals the body isn’t able to function at the level it should be. However, by taking a quality multi-vitamin supplement we can solve this problem and increase the effectiveness of our workouts,supplements, and our diet all in one. Only a multi-vitamin has the ability to increase to effectiveness of every other training factor all with one pill. Again, I’ll recommend Optimum Nutrition Opti-Men
Other Recommended Supplements
The only other supplement we recommend is a quality pre-workout supplement like Alpha Gx7. This isn’t a necessity but it’s highly recommended since you’ll be working out on low carb days which will most likely cause you to have lower energy levels that usual.
