FIRST, WHAT DO WE ACTUALLY MEAN BY "CUTTEN"?

The muscle mass for which you are in worked really hard during the winter, finally gets the definition it deserves.

  1. Casein & Whey protein powder

Proteins play an important role in the recovery process and maintaining lean muscle mass during the cut period. There are various types of protein supplements, of which Whey protein is the best known. One less known protein type is casein.

The main difference between these protein types is the degree of recording. Whey is absorbed by the body more quickly than casein protein. As a result, the release of amino acids is slower with casein because this over one longer period.

Unlike whey, casein reaches the muscles a lot slower, but this "slow protein" has the great advantage that you last longer can benefit from it.

Often casein protein powders are used before sleeping so that enough protein is available to you during the rest period restore muscles

Just like the creatine supplement, L-Carnitine is also a body substance. L-Carnitine is an amino acid. About the usefulness of this supplement, opinions are very divided, but under the motto "every bit help "it is certainly worth a try to experiment with it.

3. Caffeine

A cup of coffee in the morning is one day without worries. And that does not seem to lie. Caffeine has proven to have a mild stimulating effect on the central nervous system. Most people experience a more energetic feeling, better focus, and more alertness greater stamina. Something where we both at strength and at Cardio training reap the benefits.

Except the resting metabolism, caffeine stimulates the metabolism after a meal, in other words, the consumption for the processing of food. In addition, caffeine provides ensures that more energy is obtained from stored fat instead of from carbohydrates.

Caffeine is found in: coffee, soft drinks, chocolate milk and to a lesser extent also in tea. Due to the favorable effects on fat burning, caffeine is also the main ingredient of it fat burners and pre-workouts. It is advised not to exceed 4 to 5 daily cups of coffee per day.
