In the world of fitness supplements, more isn't always better. As NutraBio's CEO & Founder, Mark Glazier, I often address queries about combining supplements like PRE and ENS. Here's a guide to effectively using NutraBio's PRE, POST, ENS, and CarboMax to enhance your workouts and recovery.
Understanding PRE and ENS: PRE and ENS are comprehensive supplements, but they aren't designed to be used together. Both contain high dosages of creatine, arginine, citrulline, and beta-alanine. Using them simultaneously could lead to excessive intake without additional benefits. Discover more about PRE and ENS.
The Ideal Combination: PRE + POST: The synergy between PRE and POST is where the magic happens. PRE, designed for pre-workout use, boosts training intensity and focus. POST, meanwhile, focuses on muscle recovery, an aspect not covered by PRE. Learn more about POST.
Alternative Options: PRE + ENS or ENS + ENS: For those seeking a more convenient option, combining PRE with ENS or using ENS alone can be effective. ENS serves as an all-in-one muscle building and recovery product. Explore ENS for more details.
Timing Your Supplements: To maximize efficacy, separate your pre-workout and recovery supplements. For morning workouts, take PRE beforehand, protein immediately after, and POST or ENS later in the day. For evening workouts, reverse this schedule. Read about the benefits of POST.
Incorporating CarboMax: CarboMax is versatile and can be used at different times based on energy needs. It’s excellent for early morning workouts mixed with PRE, post-workout recovery with protein shakes, or during workouts mixed with BCAA. Discover more about CarboMax.
My Routine for Maximizing Supplement Use:
- PRE with ½ scoop CarboMax pre-workout.
- BCAA with 1 scoop CarboMax intra-workout.
- Whey Protein Isolate post-workout.
- POST between meals.
- Additional BCAA and Micellar Casein before sleep.
- Non-stim PRE in the morning.
- One dose of BCAA.
- POST between meals.
Conclusion: Navigating the world of supplements doesn't have to be complex. With NutraBio's PRE, POST, ENS, and CarboMax, you can tailor your supplement intake to your workout schedule and goals for optimal performance and recovery.
Stay Strong, Mark Glazier, NutraBio CEO & FounderOn non-workout days, I follow pretty much the same routine with some slight variations. I use the PRE non-stim version in the morning instead of the extreme version, so I’m not taking caffeine every day. I also drop from 2 doses to 1 dose of BCAA per day by skipping the morning intra. I then move my POST to between lunch and dinner. PRE comes in three versions: the extreme, which is the full formula with stimulants; a non-stim version, which is caffeine free; and a creatine-free version. The creatine-free formula is mostly used by fighters who need to make weight, such as MMA fighters, boxers, and wrestlers. I hope this was helpful. Let me know how it goes. – Mark Glazier, NutraBio CEO & Founder.
