Should I Use Supplements for Other Sports?
by Christian Duque
Back when I was a kid, I remember traveling to my mother’s country, Chile, quite often, and being a sports buff (even then), I often looked for American sports there. Basketball had some adherents, baseball & hockey were much less popular, and American football was nowhere to be seen. There was ‘futbol’ (e.g., soccer) that dominated not only athletics but life in general, however. I wasn’t really familiar with that sport because it was barely popular in America. Over the years, I’ve become more familiar with the grueling regimen of soccer players, both on the field, in practice, & in the weight room. Wait a minute! Soccer players lift? Heck yeah they lift!!
We here, at Tokkyo Nutrition, are keen to the fact that our supplements are helping athletes from all walks of life achieve their fitness goals. One product that’s increasingly popular is whey protein. We’ve spent many blog entries discussing the powerful benefits of this particular fast-acting product, but endurance athletes also require it because of the fact that they may have several training sessions per day. A soccer player might do stretching sessions in the morning coupled with pt, then running in the afternoon, & lifting at night. He/she will need protein immediately after each session to ensure optimal recovery & growth.
Growth is also a big misnomer. Often times when we think of it, we think of developing large muscle, but muscle grows differently depending on the athlete. A runner will never look like a lineman, but both depend on specific types of muscles that develop in their own way. The unifying factors, however, are such that protein, quality aminos, & a pure, potent glutamine must always be somewhere nearby. Fortunately, Tokkyo Nutrition has made it a philosophy, an ethos, to have the very best natural supplements money can buy, always in stock.
