Pre-Workout Supplements Etc.

(Left to Right) Super Pump 250 by Gaspari Nutrition $65, Only One Multi Vitamin by Irwin Naturals 60 count $25, Whey Protein Shake by Gold Standard 2 LBS $48, Platinum Pump Fuel by NDS $68
Some of you have asked about supplements, vitamins, and protein shakes that I take so I wanted to share with you my favorites.
Since I am doing weight lifting, pre-workout supplements for energy and strength have helped me out tremendously. I have worked out without them and I move like a snail and can't lift as heavy of weights..it's awful!
I go back and forth between 2 kinds: Platinum Pump Fuel and Super Pump 250 both are from GNC. (Side note;they are having a sale $39.99 instead of $70) Normally, I add a half of scoop to a half filled water bottle and down it 20 minutes before my workout. The label suggests to add 1 scoop of powder but it makes me too jittery and hyper.
As for a multi vitamin I really love Only One Liquid-Gel Multi because aside from having the essential vitamins and minerals of a multi, it also has Omega-3 Oils and Antioxidants Green Super Foods. That way you don't have to take fish oil vitamins too.
Now for a protein shake my favorite one is Whey by Gold Standard. It doesn't make me feel bloated or gassy which so many of them do. But it still has 24 grams of protein which is awesome.

Thanks for reading!

  15. Sarah, great to see models promote healthy eating & exercise as the way to go to "stay lean"! (rather than letting the uneducated think that you need to starve to look great) I was just wondering, do any of the PWO powders make you feel bloated? I went in to a supplement shop today and asked about the SuperPump Max, since they didn't have the size I wanted (I just wanted to try a little before buying a big jar) he recommended something else (I think it was Allmax Muscle Prime) and said that most women like that one because it doesn't have Creatine in it. Then he proceeded to explain how Creatine usually retains water in your muscle, and how women naturally retain more water than men from the start, so it's uncomfortable (or girls just don't want to look "big") and that's why they choose something without Creatine.

    Does anyone know or have tried? I guess I'm a little hesitant because of the possible "bloating"...
