Being a business executive or business owner means you have more on your hands than many other people. Unlike people who work for a company, you may not have enough time on your hands to visit the gym to workout/exercise.

People who work for others usually have more time, as after they close from work, they can head straight to the gym before they go home, or they may visit the gym before work, whichever works for them.

What I am trying to say here is you are busier than others, even after your employees leave, you will have to stay back and go through all that was done during the day, and after this, you may be too tired to go or spend enough time at the gym or even workout at home.

People like you have the tendency to be unhealthy or unfit because you hardly have time to take care of yourself.

So, if you are reading this article, chances are, you are a busy executive and you really want to look fit and healthy so you won’t feel awkward at social events and you can even feel good about yourself.

If you are a busy executive who has embarked on your bodybuilding and fitness journey, you need to know that adding supplements would help you get better results, and faster!

While workouts and exercises can effectively help you build your body, strength, endurance, joint and muscle recovery is another issue.

Now that we have realized that whole food nutrition cannot cover our dietary needs, especially for muscle builders, we now know how important quality supplements are for bodybuilding, fat loss and performance.

Prevents Nutritional Deficiency

Supplementation is a much easier way for your body to get enough nutrients to build muscles. It also enhances your training when combined with the right diet. Bodybuilding supplements prevent you from getting any nutritional deficiency.

Faster/Rapid Results

Sometimes, workouts are not enough especially for you busy executives. You don’t have enough time to spend at the gym, and you want results like others’. Supplements help you build your muscle rapidly and naturally and even help you maintain the right amount of body fat.

Supplements like protein will help rebuild your muscles and help them recover after the stress they went through during your workout.

BCAAs are also a very good intra and post workout recovery supplement. Supplements help prevent muscle soreness after workout.

While you are working out towards your goal, you are also beating up your muscles and you are at risk for muscle soreness, which may disturb your workout and general physical activities.

Failure to take recovery supplements causes delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) and no one wants this.

Enhanced performance

You cannot do it alone, trust me. No matter how strong you think you are. You need supplements to perform better. You need more strength and energy. The right supplements will help you take your performance to a higher level.

Creatine is one of the best supplements that improves performance. It improves high intensity capacity, strength, endurance, muscle mass and body composition.

You need this because as a busy executive, you do not have much strength to perform at the gym after a long day at work, or after that deep sleep. You will need lot of strength and energy to perform better during your workout.

Fat Loss

Ok, I know I’m talking about bodybuilding, but I can’t but mention fat loss here, Fat loss is a part of bodybuilding too. Some people are simply skinny and want to build lean muscle, while some people are fat, so they want to lose fat and build muscle.

Some bodybuilding supplements help you shred off excess fat from the body while helping you retain and grow your muscles.

It is important that you know the supplements that work well for bodybuilding. If you have started your bodybuilding journey or if you are looking to start building your body, read onto know which supplements to use.

Not all supplements work for everybody, people respond differently to supplements due to unique of our bodies.

Here is a list of top bodybuilding supplements;


Creatine naturally occurs within our muscle cells. It occurs primarily around our skeletal muscle tissue where 95% of the body’s creatine supply can be found.

Creatine gets converted into creatine phosphate in the muscles. This produces energy for contraction during workout.

Protein forces more water into the muscle cells, thereby creating an anabolic environment while increasing protein synthesis.

Protein synthesis is muscle growth.

Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs)

BCAAs are for fueling the body during intense workouts. It prevents your body from using your hard earned muscle for energy.

BCAAs may also stimulate protein synthesis and ward of catabolic hormones. They are great for both pre-workout and post workout supplements. As a pre-workout supplement BCAAs will fuel your body with energy, so you can safe muscle tissue and it also keep you in an anabolic state for growth.

As a post-workout supplement, BCAAs will enhance protein synthesis for faster and better muscle growth.


Protein is a popular muscle building and weight loss supplements. Protein shakes can come in whey protein, casein protein, egg protein, rice protein, soy protein and more.

Whether you're a beginner or are a seasoned pro, a quality protein powder or shake is necessary.

You must consume protein daily to build new muscle tissue. Your muscle wouldn't exist without it.

Protein provides your body with the building blocks needed to produce amino acids that are necessary for building muscle.

Whether you want to burn fat or build mass, supplementing on protein can give you faster results. Protein helps burn fat, build, repair and maintain muscle.


An adaptogenic amino acid that is present in protein, Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in skeletal muscle. It plays a vital role in immune system health and the wellbeing of the entire body.

Glutamine supports muscle growth, reduced muscle catabolism, Gut health, and Normal, healthy immune system function.

Glutamine is beneficial as post- workout supplement because it can re-synthesize muscle glycogen and glutamine levels that you lost during workout without the release of insulin.


Supplements can never replace proper nutrition, but they can help accelerate your bodybuilding and fitness goals.
