“Are sport supplements only for men?”

“Will it make me ‘bulky’?” 

“I don’t want to look like a bodybuilder.”

 

These are few common questions and unknown concepts made by many females, but are they true? Will supplements really make females too masculine? Are sport supplements safe to use for ladies?

 

In this article we will decipher some of these possible misconceptions and put some of these debates to rest. 

 

It is important to note that sport supplements serve various purposes and can assist in multiple ways. Very often these supplements are perceived as unsuitable for females due to the incorrect perception that supplements are loaded with testosterone boosters and ingredients which will give you a “bulky” physique. However, this is not the case. USN offers a full range of various products, catering towards every individual’s specific needs. Below is a breakdown of the most popular training goals amongst females, with the relevant products available to assist with the respective goals.

 

Lean Muscle + Toning 

The most important factors to focus on (in training terms) when trying to obtain your ideal lean and toned figure, is to ensure that your training programme combines light weight/resistance training with cardio. As previously mentioned, there is a very cautious approach adopted by ladies when it comes to weight training because of the “weight training leads to big bulky muscles” ideology. This is not the case. Adopting the correct approach when it comes to weight training (low weights – high reps) will ensure that you develop that ideal, toned physique that you’ve been working so hard for.

Some products we don’t advise for females:

Testosterone Boosters (Testo Tribulus, Testo gH, 17 Testo, EPIK Test gH)

High Stimulant Pre-Workouts and Fat Burners (XTS Black/Lipo X Black) – High stimulants may be too strong for lighter body weight individuals or females who are more sensitive towards stimulants in comparison to males (in general cases), use your own discretion. 

Mass Builders (Hyperbolic Mass, Fast Grow Anabolic) – Unless you are wanting to add weight (which majority of females do not want) we would not recommend high calorie protein shakes. 

 

In summary, it can be concluded that sports supplements are safe to use for ladies when used correctly and responsibly. There is an extensive range of products available and suitable for females which can give you, as a lady, the reassurance and comfort in knowing that what you’re putting into your body will only render enhanced effects and assistance.

 

Train hard, eat well and supplement accordingly!
