Bodybuilding/Powerlifting/Athletics sprints (such as 100 and 200 m, hurdles, long jump, high jump, pole vault)/Athletics throwing (such as shot put, javelin, and hammer)
Strength sports are characterized by the predominance of the anaerobic part that provides short-term extreme efforts; in this regard large amounts of energy in ATP form are required at the muscular level.
Sports of this category tend therefore to further develop strength on one side and muscle hypertrophy on the other. Adult sportsmen over 18 years of age practicing strength sports can therefore consider integrating their diet with protein food supplements.
Protein is in fact a macronutrient that contributes to both the growth and maintenance of muscle mass. Protein food supplements vary essentially according to two main features: source and mode/rate of absorption by the body.
Protein sources can be divided into animal and vegetable protein:
- the most well-known animal protein is milk: whey (concentrate, isolate, hydrolyzed) and casein, caseinates, etc.; egg white protein and meat protein (hydrolyzed beef).
- vegetable protein ranging from classic soy protein to those of rice, wheat or other plant species that are used in recent years.
PRE-WORKOUT: for adult sportsmen over 18 years of age it may be recommended an integration with creatine, a substance that acts as a ready and available energy reserve in muscles that increases physical performance in successive bursts of short-term, high intensity exercise (the beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 3 g of creatine).
POST-WORKOUT: adults in this phase can take amino acids food supplements, especially branched chain amino acids (BCAA) which are particularly suitable for adult sportsmen but also other essential amino acids blends, amino acid pools and HMB, in addition to specific gainer and post-workout products which also contain plant extracts and other nutritional factors.
