Les suppléments parfaits pour les débutants en entraînement

The perfect supplements for training beginners

Apr 30, 2024Félix Daigle

Are you new to training and unsure of the best supplements to take to maximize your results?

In the saturated world of social networks, it's easy to get lost among the many supplement options lauded by influencers on TikTok, Instagram and YouTube. Every day, new products appear, but how do you sort through them and determine which ones are truly essential?

Let's be honest, no supplement is absolutely essential, as most of our needs can be met by a balanced diet. However, in today's society where we often lack the time to prepare perfectly balanced meals, supplements can be a great help in optimizing our training results. They'll help ensure you don't have any deficiencies, meet your macronutrient targets and counteract some of the adverse effects of stress and our fast-paced lifestyles.

As a kinesiologist and trainer, introducing supplements is part of my daily work. So here are my top 3 essential supplements for beginners:

1) Multivitamins:

Considered an insurance policy for our health, multivitamins are an ideal supplement to ensure we don't suffer from nutritional deficiencies. With our increasingly fast-paced and active lifestyles, it can be difficult to consume all the vegetables and nutrients we need every day. That's where multivitamins come in. However, it's crucial to choose a trusted brand and check dosages carefully to guarantee their effectiveness.

2) Omega-3:

Omega-3 fatty acids, found mainly in oily fish, are among the most studied and beneficial supplements for health. Their regular consumption is associated with a multitude of health benefits, including reducing inflammation and supporting brain function. If you can't include fish in your diet two to three times a week, an omega-3 supplement can fill the gap!

3) Protein:

Protein is the essential building block of muscle. If you're struggling to reach your daily protein intake from your diet alone, a protein supplement can help you bridge the gap. Whether in the form of protein powder or protein bars, there are many options to suit your individual needs. If you're new to protein powder, take the time to check the origin of the protein you're consuming.

Example of protein sources:

  • Dairy products such as whey
  • Bovine protein
  • Vegan legume-based protein
  • Soy protein, etc.

It may be that your body tolerates certain types of protein better. It's time to test and find the best one for you!

In conclusion, although supplements are not indispensable, they can certainly be useful in optimizing your training results. By choosing quality supplements wisely and integrating them with a balanced diet and suitable exercise program, you can maximize your performance and overall health.

Important note! Take this opportunity to educate and introduce yourself to the components of each supplement you consume. Be sure to read the nutrition facts and the list of ingredients, and don't hesitate to research and compare the different products. Enjoy your research!
