Athletic Supplements
When You Need More!

*Note: The below supplements are from our sponsors, but in no way determine the content or outcome of the review. All reviews are non-biased. Most review scores are moderately high, however, due to the fact that we only recommend our favorite supplements...supplements that work! When you buy supplements through the links in the following reviews, you help support Warrior Sciences.

Athletes of all experiences, but especially beginners, are left awe-struck by the sheer amount of supplements available to them. There is a huge problem with the supplement industry, however. It's full of false promises, hype, misinformation, bogus "studies", and none of it's guaranteed.

One of the things we stress to our athletes is that supplements are NOT replacements. You can't supplement yourself to death and then have shitty eating habits and expect results. This definitely pertains to "diet" pills. A majority of your results will come from proper nutrition, hard work, and consistency. Supplements will give you an "edge" only if these other things are in line.

I advocate getting your micro/macro nutrients (vitamins, minerals, carbs, fat, and protein) from whole foods and natural sources. Some goals, however, may require a high amount of protein, for example. This is when supplementation is a viable option.

Pre-workouts, likewise, should not be abused. If you're feeling foggy, then have at it. There is no point in taking a pre-workout on a day where you feel like you could rip a barbell in two and carry it to the top of Mount Everest, however. You'll get a fraction of the benefits and eventually the pre-workout won't be as effective.

Other supplements include intra-workout, which help you sustain energy and endurance, and post-workout supplements which aid in recovery and growth. Be cautious of "proprietary blends". This is one way companies hide the fact that they're using low dosages of certain ingredients, rendering them useless. 

First thing's first; many of the supplements we review contain amino acids. I don't intend to repeat myself when describing what they do for you, so here is a none-conclusive list of some basic amino acids and their benefits.

Vitamins, Minerals, and Other Supplement Reviews

Controlled Labs' Orange Triad (Multivitamin)

The market is flooded with multivitamins, even those geared specifically towards athletes. Orange Triad is a multivitamin that also offers joint protection and a better immune system.

Controlled Labs' Orange OxiMega Greens (Superfood)

One benefit of Controlled Labs' OxiMega Greens is its spearmint taste and the fact that one scoop is supposed to give you five vegetable servings and two fruit servings.

Universal Supplements' Animal Pak (MultiVitamin)

Universal Supplements' Animal Pak is one of the best multivitamins for athletes. Those boys did their research, and provided us with a top-of-the-line product.

Pre-Workout Supplement Reviews

Muscle Pharm Assault

Muscle Pharm Assault is a top level preworkout that you will feel immediately, and the benefits don't stop at giving you an energy boost.

Optimum Nutrition's AmiN.O. Energy

Amino Energy from Optimum Nutrition provides a modest boost, making it great for extended training days, but isn't able to compete with other complete preworkout formulas.

Post Workout Supplement Reviews

MHP's Dark Matter

One of the favorites at Irondom Gym, Dark Matter offers an impressive blend of carbs, creatine, and amino acids to fuel your post workout for maximal growth.
