Supplements for Rugby Players

Posted by Mark Hamilton on

As a rugby player, it's important to prioritize a well-rounded diet and training regimen to support your performance and recovery. While supplements can play a role in supporting your goals, they should never replace a balanced diet. Here are some supplements that rugby players commonly use:

  1. Protein Powder: Protein is essential for muscle repair and growth. Supplementing with protein powder can help you meet your daily protein requirements, especially if it's challenging to consume enough through whole foods alone. We highly recommend Quadra Plex Pure Protein Complex as its loaded with L Glutamine and Essential Amino Acids.

  2. Creatine: Creatine is one of the most researched and effective supplements for enhancing strength, power, and explosive performance. It can also support muscle mass and aid in recovery. However, it's important to follow proper dosing instructions and stay adequately hydrated when using creatine. We recommend our Pharmaceutical grade 200 mesh Micronized Creatine Monohydrate

  3. Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs): BCAAs are a group of essential amino acids (leucine, isoleucine, and valine) that can support muscle recovery and reduce exercise-induced fatigue. They can be consumed before, during, or after workouts to help prevent muscle breakdown.

  4. Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Omega-3 fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties and can promote joint health, which is crucial for rugby players. You can find them in fish oil supplements such as Nvrenuf Krill Oil or consume them through fatty fish like salmon.

  5. Stay Hydrated it's absolutely Key to performance. We recommend Viridians Sports Electrolyte Mix or DNA Sports Hydra 1.
