Default Boxing suppliments

Coming from a powerlifting/bodybuilding background, making a transition into boxing was one of the toughest things in my life. All the cardio and muscle endurance was something that my inflexible body found hard to adapt to.

Back in the day's of lifting, supplements where some good ****. Mainly using protein, creatine, pre-work out and on some occasions BCAA's. However when transferring to boxing I immediately dropped all supplements and just did whatever I was told to do. But now that I think of it, what supplements would a boxer benefit from? Moving up in weight is not a problem for me, as I'm not looking to compete at lower weight devisions, so having supplements that cause water retention is no problem. But if anyone has experience with supplements and boxing please leave some insight or advice.

Creatine on its own does seem to help me recover a bit faster or maybe it's a placebo but I felt I trained with more intensity. I had no problem with retaining water, maybe it was the sweat suit but to me creatine was ok.

Edit: I didn't do that loading week either I started and ended with 5gr a day, 40 mins before I got to the gym.

Do you take any protein or vitamin sups? Or just Creatine prior to working out?

I don't take protein, I was tempted but I don't know if it would hurt me while I maintain weight. As far as vitamins I haven't taken them either, some dudes in my gym take the usual animal pack. I've felt beet juice also helped me out a bit.

Before you start taking any supplements make sure your diet is on point. You should be able to get almost everything your body needs from the foods you eat.

Only once you have that squared away should you even bother with the little extras to fill in the cracks.

Supplements won't help skills. I know it's off topic but hell it is what it is. Just workout hard and eat well With plenty of water. Fuk sups

I personally never saw the need for supplements if you're training in boxing.

However, if there is any that reduces fatigue, so you can do homework afterwards without dropping your face on the book every 5 seconds, then do tell?

I used to be one of those guys when I was younger obsessed with all the supplements. Wasted a fortune on them all!

Then I discovered that things like "creatine" and that were in meat anyway and in fact most all of these isolated nutrients were in natural foods.

The only difference is that the companies have isolated these nutrients for you instead of your guts doing it.

Even IF it enables those things to be absorded more readily by your body this way, as soon as you go off them, those benefits are lost.

Might as well just eat natural foods, like we were supposed to!

Protein shakes are my particular hate! It's proven that endurance athletes like boxers need even more protein than bodybuilders, but the amounts promoted by the status quo are way out of proportion.

What most people don't realise is that you will piss out any excess protein which your body doesn't use (which isn't that much anyway, less than 100g even in an elite athlete UNLESS...) UNLESS it's in the presence of animal fats, those saturated ones that health fanatics rave about. Because animal fats contain natural STEROIDS which enhance muscle growth and repair by forcing more of the protein into the muscle cells. Animal meats, milk and eggs are greater than protein shakes in my opinion which offer no accompanying fats and therefore a very expensive trip to the toilet, irritating the kidneys and liver on the way through.

I'd not against supplements altogether of course, but I'll save me dollars and laugh at a kid wasting his coin on the ****.

I will accept free samples of course

As others have said ensuring your diet is on point before considering supplements is a must. Stuff like creatine or pre-workout is absolute rubbish, especially for a sport like boxing.

What can be useful is something like glutamine which helps a lot with recovery. A low carb protein shake as a meal replacement can be useful when cutting weight.

I understand what everyone say's about eating a balanced diet, and my diet is fairly balanced. I still somewhat stick with my old powerlifting diet of high carbs and high protein with fibre and green vegetables occasionally.

But majority of everyone seems to hate supplements. I would have at least thought that protein shakes provide some sort of recovery boost for some. Or pre-workout to get you energised before sparring or bag work?
