Awesome Strength or Awesome Power - which one is for me?

"Creatine? That’s just for bodybuilders isn’t it?"

If we had a pound for every time we heard this said, we’d be billionaires! Let us tell you a little bit about this awesome supplement and why we firmly believe that is has a huge part to play in so many aspects of sport and training rather than just the bodybuilding community.

Before we go any further, we should say that creatine is the world’s most researched sports supplement and all the research indicates that if you train for strength, power, hypertrophy or repeated strength endurance, then it’s the ideal performance enhancing addition to your daily routine.

Creatine is actually an essential component of our skeletal muscle. We use our creatine stores for explosive movements, be it running upstairs or lifting a heavy object. Basically whatever requires a quick surge of power. The problem is, we don’t store much of it. By supplementing creatine, we can increase our storage potential by up to 20%. And if you’re vegetarian or vegan, this can increase by up to 40%.

So if you like to lift heavy, add some power to your workout, do repeated intervals or just like being strong, then creatine should definitely form part of your daily diet.

But what if your training is quite multi dimensional. Do you do Crossfit for example, or play a sport that requires mixed modality training? Or do you just like mixing your training up to make you an all round athlete?

If this is the case, let us tell you our best-kept secret....

If you’re a fan of Crossfit, you may have heard 5 time champion Mat Fraser reveal his secret weapon for winning the Fittest on Earth five years running. He supplemented his diet with Beta-Alanine. It’s no surprise that the supply struggled to keep up with the demand after this revelation!

This little talked about supplement does a great job in buffering the build-up of lactic acid. In a nutshell this means that you’re given the tools to train harder and for longer.

And here’s the best bit…

By adding Beta-Alanine to creatine, we have made the perfect solution to maximise strength and power whilst training that little bit longer without losing the intensity.

So if you like to hit a morning WOD or boot camp style session and are desperate to come out victorious, adding a scoop of Awesome Power to your drinks bottle is going to do you a HUGE favour and put you in a winning position.

If before you started reading this blog, you were a little confused about what supplement you should take to make you the best version of you, here is our simple solution:

If you just want to maximise your strength and hypertrophy, take 5g of Awesome Strength every day. Or if you like to do this but also take an additional conditioning approach to your workout, opt for Awesome Power.

Either way, you’ll thank us for it.

Have an awesome workout!
