This is what Endura have to tell us about Muscle & Bulk Up with Endura
All athletes, whatever the sport, are out there to achieve! The challenge is to build up physical strength and endurance in order to push past physical and mental barriers, each time lifting a little heavier, or running a little faster or further. Many athletes specifically want to bulk up and build muscle mass, which is a worthy goal for all athletes, not just body builders. Whatever your sport of choice, enhancing muscle mass and strength will improve your athletic performance and help you achieve your goals.
Plan For Success with Endura
It is important to maintain muscle mass during training and competition, however many athletes aim to also increase their muscle mass for additional strength and performance power. For optimal muscle growth, combine adequate energy intake through a nutrient rich diet, with a muscle strengthening program. Building muscle takes time and requires the right nutrients. Individuals have different potential for muscle growth, so make a realistic training plan and use a reputable trainer. Some well-chosen supplements from the Endura range can also help you realise your potential.
Feed Your Muscles
During intense physical activity, your body has increased nutritional requirements, calling on additional protein and carbohydrates for energy, and importantly, to provide fuel for muscle growth during your strength training program. It is important to eat a variety of nutritious foods and include both carbohydrates and protein in the diet as they are essential for muscle growth. Eating and drinking frequently will help meet the body’s increased energy needs while training, and planning meals and snacks ahead of time will make it easier to achieve your optimal energy intake each day.
Fuel in the Form of Carbohydrates
Carbohydrates provide fuel for muscle growth and provide the main energy source during a strength training workout. Carbohydrates are stored as glycogen in the muscles and are used to provide energy. The harder and longer you workout, the more glycogen your muscles need. This means that increasing your intake of carbohydrates in conjunction with training is important.
Endura - Protein Power
Protein requirements are increased during strength training, as protein forms the building blocks for muscle tissue. Physical training can create small tears in muscle tissue and protein is essential to repair and rebuild muscle after a work-out. Protein requirements vary depending on the intensity and duration of your exercise (see Table 1 for current recommendations for protein intake). Adequate protein intake may minimise exercise induced muscle breakdown, boost athletic performance and reduce or prevent other signs of protein deficiency such as unexplained fatigue.

Increase Energy Intake with Endura
Increasing your energy intake from diet alone is a challenge, a pre-exercise and post-exercise shake is an easy and convenient way to increase your energy and meet your nutritional needs during times of intensive training. The following Endura products will increase your nutrient intake during a strength training program to assist in building muscle mass and give you the competitive edge:
Endura Optimizer contains the right balance of protein, carbohydrates and electrolytes in an easy-to-digest formula to meet the needs of athletes whose goal is to gain maximum strength and endurance. It is a complete formula to assist with repair and maintenance of muscle tissue, replenishment of depleted glycogen stores and to maintain or increase muscle mass following exercise.
This advanced formula combines carbohydrates and proteins in a 6:1 ratio, which is the most efficient way of replenishing glycogen stores. It allows the body to use carbohydrates as a source of fuel so muscle mass can be conserved. The whey protein in Optimizer is specifically hydrolysed and pre-digested so it can be absorbed faster than non-hydrolysed proteins and offer greater muscle recovery. This formula is perfect for athletes who need an energy-boosting meal prior to strenuous exercise. For maximum growth and muscle gain, drink one serve 30-60 minutes before your workout and one serve 30 minutes after starting your workout. Taken within 2 hours of exercise, Endura Optimizer can also assist with glycogen replenishment and maintaining muscle mass.
Endura Maintain is a great tasting undenatured whey protein isolate powder that can be used as a convenient high protein drink. It is a high protein, low carbohydrate and low fat supplement to improve body composition and assist with building muscle, making it suitable for body builders and athletes. Each serve of Endura Maintain provides 16 grams of protein.
Keep Creatine in Mind
While it is important to consume adequate protein and carbohydrates to maintain muscle health during intense exercise, keep creatine in mind when you want to enhance muscle mass and strength. Creatine facilitates the body's synthesis of muscle proteins, stimulates muscle growth and increases muscle strength when used in conjunction with an appropriate resistance training program to maximise results. A research study has shown that healthy men supplementing with creatine and engaging in resistance-training for 12 weeks, experienced a greater increase in body mass and muscle fibres, and were able to lift a greater volume of weights during training.2 Endura Creatine Plus combines creatine monohydrate with glutamine and HMB to facilitate muscle growth and increase lean body mass and muscle strength. It can be used before, during and after sustained strenuous exercise.
Be Prepared for Maximum Results
Athletic performance can be improved by strength training and building your muscle mass. To get the most out of your program, it is important to meet your nutritional requirements through an energy rich diet and appropriate supplementation. Let Endura help you achieve your goals to build muscle for peak performance.
