Ride with the punches: The top supplements for boxing and MMA

Many mixed martial artists can benefit from the correct supplements. MMA and Boxing rely very heavily on cardiovascular endurance and total power output. From a performance perspective, we need to take supplements that will not only boost power and strength but also help assist in endurance.

Let's break down the top supplements for boxing and MMA

Beta-Alanine

This supplement is really a no-brainer for any endurance athlete. Beta-Alanine helps to buffer lactic acid in the muscle; this means you can train longer without feeling the onset of fatigue. Try supplementing 1.5-2g before a workout to help buffer lactic acid and boost endurance in your workout.

Creatine Monohydrate

The most fundamental supplement for any athlete involved in strength-based sports, Creatine helps to improve strength by replenishing ATP (Adenosine TriPhosphate) stores. This, in turn, helps an athlete recover faster, and provides more intra-workout power and strength. Try supplementing 5g/d for 6 weeks and measure results.

Carbohydrate Blend

A complete carbohydrate blend will provide more energy and boost performance during a workout. Carbohydrates are the main energy source for skeletal muscle in the body. For best results try a blend containing mainly glucose polymers and maltodextrin.

Overnight Protein

MMA and Boxing put excessive stress on joints, muscles and overall conditioning. The best time to recover is overnight; this is when testosterone is at its peak, and protein synthesis occurs. To make sure you are recovering as fast as possible try an overnight protein blend that contains a matrix of fast and slow digesting proteins - Phase 8, by MuscleTech is our favorite choice.

High-performance supplementation can mean the difference between recovering in time for a fight or be being too sore to compete. Take control of your sport and supplement with the best products on the market.
