Can sporting supplements help you be better race sailor ?

When it comes to sailing your aerobic fitness will make all the difference. You need to be fit, nimble and agile in order to control a boat whilst being physically prepared to take to the seas.

To do this, you need to be working on minimal body fat. Losing body fat is actually a lot less tricky than most people think. We often tend to unnecessarily over-complicate things when really the whole process is very straight forward. It all comes down to just two things: exercise and diet. If they’re both correct then everything is smooth sailing. Luckily for you, an exercise regime doesn’t need too much thought seeing as you’re out on the sea so often. For your diet, you need to make sure that you’re fairly lean. If you’re carrying excess weight then moving around, changing direction and controlling the boat will be a lot harder.

To lose fat or maintain a fit body then you need to keep an eye on your total calories. To find out your BMR (basal metabolic rate) then multiplying your bodyweight in pounds by 17 usually works. If you eat this amount of calories then you’ll stay at the same body composition you are now. Take away 200 calories and you’ll lose weight, add 200 calories and you’ll gain weight. This makes it easy to sort your diet for building muscle, losing fat and simply staying healthy.There are also certain supplements you can take to aid in your journey. Fat and carb blockers both prevent calories from being digested and force you to excrete them instead. The two best forms of these are Orlistat and white kidney bean extract. These work best for the average person and also have the most research behind them proving their success. Orlistat has been said to help you lose an extra pound per two pounds lost.

Supplements like caffeine, pre-workouts, Winstrol or Anavar will help with your energy levels during a workout.Check out this before and after Anavar picturs to see results of supplementing with Anavar. Supplements allow for you to burn more calories in a session and put more effort in. The most popular and effective supplements are whey protein powder and creatine. Protein powder makes sure that you’re getting in adequate amounts of amino acids to repair your muscles and recover before you next hit the water. It also keeps you full so that you don’t eat as much. Creatine, on the other hand, increases your ATP (adenosine triphosphate) stores which aid with short-term energy bursts.
