Boost your 8 Week Challenge with VPA supplements

As you start your 8 Week Challenge, you’ll want to ensure that you have the necessary tools before beginning this program. Aside from the meal guides provided within the program, supplementation can help you reach your fitness goals, particularly if your diet doesn't provide you with all the necessary nutrients.

We have a few suggestions that can aid you in achieving your fitness objectives. Whey protein isolate, however, is our number one recommendation. The supplements listed below have a solid track record of helping users reach their fitness objectives when used consistently.


WPI/ Whey Protein Isolate

Whey protein isolate is one of the two main whey proteins available today. Whey protein isolate comes from skim milk and has been purified through an ion-exchange process to remove almost all non-protein components such as lactose, minerals, fats, and carbohydrates. The other type of whey product is concentrate, which is made from whole milk by removing most of the fat content (usually about 80%).

The result is an extremely pure form of whey protein (generally more than 90%) that contains all the essential amino acids your body needs without any carbohydrates or fats getting absorbed.

How does it work?

 

Whey protein isolate is considered a high-quality form of whey because it has been filtered to remove most of the lactose and fat molecules, leaving behind a pure form of whey protein.

Because it contains very little carbohydrate, it's less likely to be stored as fat than other types of protein. It also takes time for your body to digest, so you feel full for longer after eating foods containing whey protein isolate than you do after eating foods containing other types of protein.

This can make it easier for you to lose weight by helping you eat fewer calories without feeling hungry.

 

Benefits:

  • Helps build muscle mass and strength
  • Promotes better digestion and absorption of nutrients
  • Increases energy levels by boosting metabolism and providing fuel for muscles
  • Lowers cholesterol levels because it contains no saturated fat or cholesterol
  • Decreases appetite by making you feel full longer

WPC/ Whey Protein Concentrate

WPC is a combination of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. It contains a large percentage of protein, essential fats, vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes. This combination makes it an excellent source of nutrients that support muscle growth and recovery after intense exercise.

 

How does it work?

Whey protein concentrate contains a large amount of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) that are essential for muscle growth and repair. The body breaks down BCAAs to form glucose and uses them as fuel during exercise. This process helps delay fatigue during exercise and makes you more resilient to injury. Whey also contains glutamine, which helps promote muscle growth by improving recovery time between workouts.

Sold out

The body needs more protein before and after exercise than at any other time, so consuming whey before or after your workout can help optimize your results if you're working out consistently with weights or cardio exercises and machines.

Benefits:

  • Provides a great source of protein that helps build muscle mass, which can help with weight loss efforts.
  • Supports muscle growth and repair after exercise.
  • This is great for people who are looking to bulk up.

Muscle Gainer

VPA® Australia's Muscle Gainer is a protein powder designed to help you simultaneously build muscle and lose fat. It contains whey protein concentrate and creatine monohydrate. They contain BCAAs which are essential for muscle growth because they help your body build new muscle tissue.

Our muscle gainer has a combination of WPC, Maltodextrin, Dextrose Monohydrate, and Creatine Monohydrate. These ingredients make it a high-calorie and high-protein supplement that helps you bulk up if gaining more muscles is your goal.

Sold out

How does it work

A muscle gainer supplement contains a blend of carbohydrates, fats, protein, and other nutrients like creatine monohydrate or glutamine peptides. The carbs are used as fuel for your workouts, while the fats provide energy and help with fat loss.

The protein content in these supplements is high enough to help build muscle by increasing amino acid levels in your bloodstream.

 

Benefits:

  • Improves muscle power
  • Increases lean body mass
  • Improves the ability to perform physical activities, including exercise
  • Increases endurance during prolonged physical activity by reducing fatigue

Creatine Monohydrate

Creatine is naturally produced in the liver and kidneys but gets transported to muscles through the bloodstream. There, it helps convert energy from protein, carbohydrates, and fats into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a form of energy used by cells to fuel their activities. The more energy available for work, the better you can perform during exercise.

 

How does it work?

Creatine increases the amount of ATP available for cellular work. This makes your cells more efficient at performing activities such as lifting weights or sprinting short distances at high-intensity levels. It also pushes you harder during exercise because your muscle cells aren't as fatigued.

Creatine also increases protein synthesis (protein building) in skeletal muscle tissue – resulting in larger muscles with more power and strength combined with resistance training programs like weightlifting or HIIT cardio workouts.

Benefits:

  • Increase strength and muscle mass
  • Improve brain function
  • Boost energy levels

Summer FOMO:

Summer FOMOTM is a dietary supplement to help you burn fat and lose weight. It contains a unique blend of ingredients that work together to boost your metabolism and help your body burn more fat.

 

How does it work?

Thermogenic fat burners contain ingredients that increase your body temperature by causing an increase in metabolic rate. The higher your metabolic rate, the more calories you'll burn throughout the day. These supplements contain caffeine and green tea extract that stimulate the central nervous system (CNS) to achieve this effect. This triggers increased heart rate and blood pressure, increasing your energy levels and making you more alert.

Sold out

Benefits:

  • Helps you burn fat faster
  • Burns off fat
  • Increases energy levels
  • Improves mood and mental focus

Lean Shake

Lean Shake is a high-protein meal replacement shake that contains whey protein isolate and is low in sugar, fat and calories. It has been designed as a convenient way to lose weight, build muscle or maintain your current physique by replacing one or two meals per day with a nutritious drink.

 

How does it work?

This meal replacement contains an exclusive blend of ingredients designed to help you feel fuller longer, so you can lose weight faster. It also has vitamins and minerals.

Sold out

It is a low-calorie meal replacement shake that contains all of the essential proteins, carbohydrates and fats your body needs. This means it can be used as a healthy breakfast replacement or as a snack between meals.

Lean Shake also helps you to control your appetite by increasing serotonin levels in the brain. This reduces hunger cravings and makes you feel fuller for longer. It does this without making you feel bloated or cause digestive issues like bloating or gas.

Benefits:

  • Helps you to lose weight
  • Contains high levels of protein and fibre, which help keep you feeling full for longer periods.
  • Helps combat cravings by providing you with all your daily nutritional requirements in one Shake.

L-carnitine

L-carnitine is a compound made of the amino acids lysine and methionine. It's essential for producing energy in cells, especially those that use fatty acids as fuel.

 

How does it work?

The body needs L-carnitine to help the liver use fats, including cholesterol, as fuel. L-carnitine also plays a role in transporting fatty acids into cells' mitochondria — their power centres — where they are burned for energy.

L-carnitine helps transport fatty acids to muscle cells so they can be burned as fuel. It also promotes the breakdown of fat by increasing blood flow to tissues and speeding up metabolism.

Sold out

Benefits:

  • May Improve Muscle Function
  • May Help Burn Fat for Fuel
  • May Lower LDL Cholesterol Levels

ZMA6 Recovery

ZMA6 Recovery is a premium, high-quality zinc, and magnesium supplement. This specific supplement was designed to support a restful recovery.

 

How does it work?

Zinc is involved in many body functions, including the production of RNA (ribonucleic acid) and DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), the building blocks of all cells. It also helps maintain your immune system, promotes wound healing and supports a healthy reproductive system. Zinc also plays an important role in protein synthesis, which is how your body uses protein to build tissue and repair cells.

 

Benefits

  • Better sleep
  • Increased testosterone production
  • Improved recovery from exercise
  • Improved immune function
  • Improved digestion

Pre-Workout PRE-30 V2

PRE-30 V2 is a pre-workout designed to be taken 30 minutes before your training session. It gives you increased energy, focus, and endurance to make sure you can train harder than ever before.

 

How does it work?

The active ingredients in PRE-30 V2 are clinically dosed and shown to increase mental focus and alertness, as well as reduce fatigue and muscle soreness. It also contains creatine monohydrate which is a naturally occurring compound that has been shown to increase strength, power output, muscle size, and muscle recovery.
