Have you ever wondered how to use your pre-workout supplement and your whey protein to maximize your efforts in the gym? Your pre-workout, like AminoLean, can help support your workout needs and enhance your workout potential. Its combination of both BCAAs and EAAs with a focus and energy blend that can be used pre-workout, post-workout or anytime for a clean energy boost naturally sourced from green tea. Each serving contains 125mg of caffeine that won’t leave you crashing or with the jitters like other pre-workout supplements.


AminoLean contains 5g of essential Amino Acids to help you recover faster and help support lean muscle growth. Not only do BCAAs support muscle growth, studies have shown that they can help with muscle fatigue and soreness. Taking AminoLean will improve your recovery, which will set you up for success during your next workout. 


TrueFit, your grass-fed whey protein powder, can be used post-gym. Consuming a protein shake within 2 hours of your workout is optimal time for muscle growth and is often easier on digestion and more convenient than having a meal post-workout.


Protein after a workout helps repair muscle damage and fasten recovery after a workout, so using 20-40mg of TrueFit protein after exercising may help your body’s ability to recover faster. Since proper hydration is also key in your athletic performance, drinking a pre-workout and post-workout protein drink will help you get in fluids that will help build muscle strength, control and endurance.


Whey protein serves as a good source of calcium, potassium, iron, and vitamin B. You may find that some protein powders contain corn syrup, added sugar, partially hydrogenated oils, artificial flavors, and even chemical preservatives. And while some of them are marketed for weight loss, they contain more added sugar than they do protein. Check those labels! 


TrueFit contains a good amount of protein, fat, and carbohydrates with plenty of fiber so you can stay fuller longer and maintain your energy throughout the day. Together, BCAAs and whey-protein can act as a dynamic duo for lean muscle growth and recovery, with less down-time and faster progression towards your goals.
