I’m an ultra runner (think scaling and descending multiple mountainous climbs over rugged terrain and leaping through water crossings) wanting to get bigger and stronger for injury prevention and to stay on top of the competition.
Coming from a road running background, I have a pretty lean but small body in terms of muscle. To outrun the best trail runners, I need bigger, more powerful legs and glutes.
I’ve strength trained pretty consistently for a few years but want to get more serious about lifting heavy. I also want to find a way to preserve muscle during racing, which can last up to 24-26hrs.
So I’m looking for:
something to help me get the most quality muscle mass from my strength training.
something I can legally take during training and racing to prevent catabolism and keep me performing while being easy on the GI tract as I run.
I’ve been looking at Mag-10 and Plazma, but am not really sure which is best suited.
I also wanted to know, is it possible, safe and legal to take supplements to boost natural levels of testosterone or HGH? Obviously, I do not want to start abusing hormone drugs, but am curious if there are natural supplements or foods that healthfully enhance my own body’s production.
