When you’re working out several days a week while making small dietary changes, consider dabbling with some basic supplements to help meet your nutrition and energy needs. 

Pre workout

Gold Standard Pre-Workout

Optimum Nutrition’s new Gold Standard Pre-Workout unleashes amplified energy, focus, and supports enhanced endurance to help you reach the pinnacle of your game, crush your next set, get that last rep, and achieve some true gains. This formula raises the bar by providing you with only what you need to achieve your true strength — made with select ingredients, including caffeine from only natural sources (tea and coffee bean) to help dial in intense energy, mental alertness, and sharp focus before you hit the gym.

ON GS Whey


Whey Protein Isolates (WPI) are the purest form of whey protein that currently exists. WPIs are costly to use, but rate among the best proteins that money can buy. That’s why they’re the first ingredient you read on the Gold Standard 100% Whey label. By using WPI as the primary ingredient along with premium ultra-filtered whey protein concentrate (WPC), Optimum Nutrition packed 24 grams of protein into every serving to support your muscle-building needs after training. Additionally, this superior quality powder has been instantiated to mix easily using a shaker cup or just a glass and spoon. Get it here.

Gold standard casein


Right before or after training, rapidly digesting whey protein helps start recovery, a process that can take up to 48 hours. Between meals and before bed, when nutritional support won’t be available for a while, casein protein can help provide long-lasting amino acid support. Casein proteins are pH sensitive and become a gel in the acidic environment of the stomach. As a result, it can take longer for caseins to be broken-down into their amino acid subcomponents than whey and other proteins. Because of their unique slow-digesting qualities, caseins are described as anti-catabolic or muscle-protecting proteins. Get it here.

ON Protein Energy

Protein Energy

Your active lifestyle doesn’t leave much time to spare. Now there’s a convenient solution to help fuel your day with premium whey protein and caffeine from natural sources. Protein Energy is ideal first thing in the morning, late in the afternoon or anytime you feel the need for 20 grams of quality protein stacked with 120 milligrams of caffeine – about as much as a 10-ounce cup of coffee. Each two-scoop serving also delivers Green Tea Extract, Vitamins B6 and B12 and Vitamin E to help fuel your day. With just 100 calories, one gram of carbs and less than a gram of sugar, Protein Energy is the perfect complement for anytime you need that extra boost. Get it here.
