IdealFit BCAAs and Pre-Workout

I’m quite picky about the supplements I take. I like to know that what I am taking is really benefiting my body and helping me through my workouts. They also need to taste amazing, because I am pretty picky when it comes to things like that!

IdealFit have an extensive range of supplements designed specifically for women. They are formulated to help you get the best out of your workouts, assist your muscles in recovery and to help you achieve the body you’ve always wanted!

I am going to review two of their best-selling products in this blog post. The Pre-Workout and BCAAs.

Pre-Workout – Cherry Limeade Flavour

Pre-Workout is ideal to take just before you head to the gym or go out on your run. The IdealLean formula contains Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12 and also Niacin, all of which help to fuel your body and give you the extra boost you need to help you get the most out of your workout.

‘B’ Vitamins are known for their fatigue reducing qualities, as they help to break down food and turn it into fuel.

This pre-workout also contains calcium to help support your muscles, allowing them to work properly, as well as looking after your bones.

The pre-workout comes in a fine powder. You mix a scoop of this powder in with 300mls of cold water, ideally in a shaker bottle to get rid of any lumps! It tastes incredible! It’s very sweet which I love, but is actually low in sugar and super low in calories.

I found it just gives me that extra boost to help me push through intense cardio or really heavy weight sessions. This is especially fab for me as I tend to workout super early in the mornings and often I feel super sluggish at this time!

Grab yours here! Remember use ‘ELLE10‘ for 10% off! They also do some other gorgeous flavours such as blue raspberry or watermelon ice which I really want to try!

 

BCAAs – Raspberry Lemonade Flavour

BCAAs (branch chained amino acids) go straight to your muscles to help support them and also assist in your training efforts. They are fab for those ladies who want to lose some fat but also wish to build some lean muscle mass into the bargain (which I totally want to do!)

They also help to reduce muscle soreness post-workout by aiding in muscle recovery. Fabulous especially if you train often and don’t want to have to worry about aching muscles when you workout!

Your body can’t produce these amino acids by itself so it’s really important to obtain them either from your food or your supplements.

Once again these BCAAs are a fine powder – mix one scoop with 400mls of cold water. I love the flavour of these too! Like the pre-workout, this flavour is lovely and sweet and really does taste like raspberry lemonade but without the guilt!

I like to take mine to the gym with me and sip on it during a workout. You can also take it on your rest days to help aid muscle recovery and growth.

Also be sure to check out the IdealFit Shaker Bottle, which is fab for mixing supplements and protein powder!

Overall I would really recommend both the BCAAs and the Pre-Workout. I have used them for several weeks now and I feel like they are really helping me get the best out of my workouts as well as helping me to build muscle (especially on my arms and my quads!).
