Best Supplements for Olympic Weightlifting and Powerlifting | 3 Hacks for Strength Power Speed


I’m going to show you how to hack an old
supplement for strength power speed using my NASA research, and we are
getting started right now! What is going on my name is David Barr [CSCS CISSN RSCC] if you’re
looking to get bigger faster stronger, get leaner, go longer, hit that Subscribe
and then the little bell, so you don’t miss the latest tips, tricks, and things
you need to fix! Speaking of fixing there’s three things you need to know
about this supplement, things we need to revisit so we can really use it -tap into
our strength power speed. Because right now it’s a bodybuilding supplement, and it’s
not even really great for that but based on newer research, and based on
some of my NASA research experience I think there’s a way we can hack this to
really tap into our neurochemistry, and that is the fundamental component of
this series. My goal is to gently introduce neurochemistry, neuroscience
-nice easy applied way to really tap into that strength power speed that we’re
missing out on. Because right now we’re in the Dark Ages and we need to get out of
that, we need to advance the conversation and the field. And at the end stay tuned
for the three tips you need to take full advantage of this information. So this
one kicked off working for NASA the Johnson Space Center I’m looking at
countermeasures for muscle wasting and spaceflight trying to get Elon Musk to
Mars and that kind of thing, and one of the things we were looking at was the
conversion of fiber types and we actually did not want to see a
conversion to a faster fiber type because that meant that the muscle was
wasting -in space our default fiber type is going to be the fastest fiber type
it’s only when we’re in gravity what we’re loading, we’re fatiguing -that makes
us slower and it doesn’t make a lot of sense at first but then you realize key
adaptations to mitigate fatigue so if there’s no stress on the muscle we’re
going to have a faster fiber type this is important for you because what it
means is that the signals that we need for strength power speed -they are minor
signals they’re secondary signals and when we get more powerful fatigue signals
like hydrogen ions, acid, even at a very small level, it’s going to override those
secondary characteristics that we want -those secondary signals. So we have to
eliminate those more powerful signals as much as we can so consider that you
train with lower reps and longer to eliminate those signals it’s not just
about the signals you’re providing it’s about the signals that you’re
eliminating so if we really want to maximize that strength power speed we
need to eliminate the fatigue signal as much as possible and there’s research
out Poland showing that there’s a neurotransmitter that could be
advantageous for this. Second key is working through a neurotransmitter
called GABA we don’t want this one it shuts us down!
Neurotransmitters can get very complicated, we don’t need the details
right now but it is important to know well just summarize GABA is a shut down
neurotransmitter -it’s not great for learning it’s probably not great for
strength speed, that kind of thing so we want to eliminate it as much as possible
without dipping into pathophysiology, we want to have normal but low levels and
there is a common supplement that could mitigate the potential effects of this
GABA. I talked about this on my second ever Muscle & Fitness article back in the
day, we’re talking centuries ago, but the theory still holds. This supplement that
we typically use for fellow meatheads for a bodybuilding again doesn’t really
work that well for it I show how to fix it in another video but there is a hack
that we can use and it could potentially mitigate the effect of GABA. If you’re
thinking about going the more “hardcore” route of pharmaceutical blockage of gaba
antagonists we don’t want that there potentially dangerous they could cause
seizures it’s something we don’t want to mess with that’s why we’re talking about
extrapolated theory and supplements trying to keep this as safe but as
potent as possible we have to consider the potential syn genic effect which is
a novel emergent synergistic effect when using this supplement with others that’s
why you need to check out the other videos in the series to tap in your
neurotransmitters and make sure you’re optimizing your strength power speed,
again we’re in the dark ages this series is designed to get us out of that. Now
the third key this is the big one this is what you’re after it’s the actual
supplement and you’ve heard of it you’ve probably used it but there’s a trick to
it we have to use it in a certain way to actually work for us I talked about this
in another video where we’re just expecting to take a supplement and you
know expect it to do all the work we have to work with this supplement if
we’re not working along the same mechanism of action as a supplement it’s
not going to do anything so there’s a hack
to this so stay tuned for that so this key supplement this key ingredient
common amino acid beta alanine. Now again I know you’ve heard of this probably
haven’t heard it discussed in this way before because we’re talking about GABA
antagonism blocking GABA, or potentially some of its effects, and we’re also
talking about mopping up those hydrogen ions that acid that even a little bit
could cause a shift to a slower type of muscle now of course is an extrapolated
theory but still there is research behind this so the keys to using this are
A – use it when your protein fasted. that will ensure maximum transport
through the gut through the blood into muscle. B – Secondly I use this about 45
minutes before a lift trying to make sure that the blood levels are high
getting across the CNS blood-brain barrier trying to get to the CNS get to
the brain, where it can do its magic and lastly C – Dosing if you haven’t used this
before you might experience some of that Paris Lygia the tingling some people
love it some people don’t but if you’re brand new to it I would start off with a
lower dose say 2 grams work your way up I think to be maximally effective you’re
going to need more probably 4 or 5 grams at a single dose because again we are
not using it just to load our muscle up we are using it as an antagonist for
GABA, we’re using it to mop up those hydrogen ions and that’s going to be
more of an acute effect so here your 3 next steps that you can use to take full
advantage of this information number one consider the concept of signals this is
a paradigm shift we need to rethink how we’re looking at signals it’s not just
the signals that we’re providing it’s also the signals that we’re eliminating
in this case it’s going to be the hydrogen ions eliminating as much as
possible because they are a master regulator -they are very very powerful
signal that we want to get rid of secondly consider using beta alanine
this one’s pretty simple right I don’t make any recommendations prescriptions
doesn’t matter what the certifications are behind this legally this is just a
cya thing. So just consider using beta alanine in this way and why we’re using
it in this way lastly check out the other videos in
this series -again we’re talking soon genic effect this entire series is built
around optimizing our neuro cameras optimizing our neurotransmitters it
sounds big and scary and that’s probably why we haven’t touched it but there’s a
ton of info out there that we need to use apply to advance the conversation
advance a field in your strength power speed. So there’s your three next steps,
you have your marching orders, this is the best supplements for Olympic
weightlifting and powerlifting series, thanks for watching I’m David Barr, until
next time Raise The Barr
