Properly designed supplement programs help a powerlifter to perform better and lift heavier. Dietary supplements can play a meaningful role in helping powerlifters consume the proper amount of calories, protein, carbohydrate, and essential fatty acids in their diet, allow the body to recover quickly after a strenuous workout, help lift heavy and help maintain and improve joint health.

Creatines

Creatine is one of the most widely used and the most effective ergogenic nutritional supplement currently available to powerlifters in terms of increasing lifting performances and raising your energy levels. The average gain in performance from the clinical studies typically ranges between 10 to 15%. Short-term creatine supplementation has been reported to improve maximal power/strength (5–15%), work performed during sets of maximal effort muscle contractions (5–15%), single-effort sprint performance (1–5%). Long-term creatine supplementation appears to enhance the overall quality of training, leading to 5 to 15% greater gains in strength and performance.

In addition creatine supplementation may prevent injuries. Researchers examine the effects of creatine supplementation on the incidence of cramping and injury observed during 1 season of National Collegiate Athletic Association Division IA football training and competition. They found that incidence of cramping or injury amoung football players was significantly lower for creatine users compared with nonusers.


 

Proteins

Every strength athletes either knows or should know the importance of protein. Without enough protein, you can't train heavy, and won't get stronger. Proteins are the building blocks of muscles. It has been shown that the protein requirements for strength athletes may well exceed that suggested by the RDA (0,8g/kg/day) because of a greater lean mass, a greater need for tissue repair, and because a small amount of protein is burned during training. This increases the protein requirement for powerlifters to approximately double or triple that of nonathletes. Research has shown that 2.0 to 2.6 g/kg/day of protein are required for periods of very intense weight training. Powerlifters can especially benefit from supplementing with a high quality protein formula because they aid in repair, growth, and development of muscle tissue.


 

Weight Gainers

For most of us this is hard to achieve, but we can supplement with a high quality weight-gain product. Weight gainers are high nutrient density powdered drink mixes, that are consumed in the place and/or beside of a whole-food meal. Weight gainers contain a mixture of carbohydrates, protein, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, free amino acids and other ingredients that are thought to improve your lifting performance.
