Think Outside The Gym | Supplements For Rowing

Rowing is a sport that requires a great deal of power, endurance and technique, using both aerobic (using oxygen) and anaerobic (without oxygen) respiration. As a result, correct nutrition and supplementation is more important than ever for rowers, to ensure energy levels are always high, and premature fatigue is out of the question. So, what should you be taking to keep your oar game strong?

Joint Effort

Requiring lots of repetitive movements, rowing can be a little harsh on the old joints, bones and muscles. Joint Effort is an awesome multivitamin containing high levels of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin also known as ascorbic acid which has many beneficial properties, particularly within collagen formation and joint health. Supplementing with Joint Effort is highly recommended for those taking part in sports requiring a great deal of power (such as rowing) to prevent the risk of injury. Alongside those fantastic benefits, vitamin C supports iron absorption and immune system function ensuring you’re always ready to hit the water, whatever the weather!

Maca powder

Along with it’s beautifying properties in boosting the health of your hair, skin and nails, Maca powder contains powerful levels of antioxidants and is a fantastic source of vitamin B2 and vitamin C, both of which contribute to energy metabolism and reduction of fatigue. So increase your energy levels to cross that finish line with the myvitamins super-charged Maca Powder.

Feel A-C-E contains a unique antioxidant blend of A,C & E vitamins (because 3 is the magic number). This effective multivit blend provides the best vitamins that protect the body’s cell against oxidative stress caused by toxins and free radicals in the body.  Feel A-C-E also helps to prepare the body’s natural defences by supporting normal function of the immune system, to ensure you always bring your A-game to the water.

Vegan Protein Blend

Following intense exercise, the body is in a state of catabolism, meaning that protein breakdown is at it’s highest (Oh no!). Therefore, supplementation is essential to promote muscle repair and prevent breakdown. Vegan protein provides a gluten free, lactose-free and completely dairy-free source of branch chain amino acids (BCAA’s). BCAA’s are the building blocks of protein which are a MUST for muscle growth and repair following exercise. Adding a scoop of vegan protein blend is the easiest way to get a protein fix (22g per serving), without additional calories from other macronutrients such as carbohydrate and fat, if you want to build lean muscle mass, vegan protein is the way to do so!
