Abstract:
Subsequent to the analysis of a pre-workout supplement, during-workout supplement, and post-workout supplement, it was concluded that only the post strength training recovery supplement (Optimum Nutrition’s™ Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein) was able to successfully fulfill all of the company’s claims as well as proved the most beneficial. It was noted that the other two types of supplements had some potentially negative effects on a human’s cardiovascular system, were not necessarily beneficial for strength training exercisers, and contained various ingredients with both valid and invalid company claims. This review of the cardiovascular (CV) system in congruence with strength training supplements concludes the vital connections between the two are important and should be heavily considered upon use of supplementation resembling any of the three reviewed.
