Women’s Physique or Bodybuilding Supplement Program
ESSENTIAL: When preparing for any type of physique competition, supplementation is crucial for retaining your hard earned lean muscle while simultaneously losing accumulated bodyfat for that well-conditioned look judges want.
To maintain and gain muscle, start with two containers of UMP (pick your favorite flavors, and be sure to mix it up for variety), 2 bottles of Quadracarn, one Creatine Select and one Glutamine Select.
- Ultimate Muscle Protein at meals 2 and 4 as listed below
- Quadracarn – 3 tablets three times daily (morning, pre workout, and evening)
- Creatine Select – take 1 scoop daily with the meal of your choice
Quick Tip: Choose the same meal each day to more easily remember
- Glutamine Select – 2 scoops mixed in 8-16 oz. water and sipped during training
ADVANCED: Lean Out and 7-Keto Musclean will take your fat loss to the next level, while Density ensures you’re getting the most out of the foods you’re eating.
- Lean Out – 2 with each and every meal
- 7-Keto Musclean – 3 capsules, 2x daily about 6 hours apart
- Density – 2-3 with each meal
COMPREHENSIVE: To really add Lean Mass, even in a fat loss centric diet, choose to add the time tested combo of Mass Amino Acids and Ultra 40 Liver tabs.
- Mass – 3 with each meal
- Ultra 40 – 3 with each meal
MAXIMUM:The final step in achieving your best ever competition body would be to add in Muscularity and Muscle Synergy (can be substituted for Creatine Select also, if it fits into your budget).
- Muscularity – 2-3 with each meal
- Muscle Synergy – 1 scoop (8 tablets) 2x daily; on training days, make sure one dose is taken prior to your workout.
