While all athletes are very aware of the importance of exercise in reaching their peak fitness, the jury is still out on the dietary aspect of health and fitness. A quick Google search for the healthiest nutrition regime would produce thousands of contradictory results. Sorting through all of these varying opinions could be not only time consuming, but very confusing for those without a background in health and fitness.

We at Arakan Martial Art realized this problem and put in the work for you, researching the large number of available supplements and nutritional aids available on the market. The health supplement market targets a wide range of fitness and nutritional goals. However, these goals can be consolidated into four main groups: preparation for an intense workout session, losing weight, gaining muscle, and recovering after an intense workout session.

All athletes value optimum nutrition so that they can perform at their peak. Regardless of an individual’s fitness and nutritional goals, health supplements can provide the additional boost needed to see results that cannot be obtained from simply dieting and exercise alone.

For those athletes that are looking to provide their bodies with nutrients in preparation of an intense workout, a dietary supplement is often the preferred method as opposed to eating large amounts of food that weigh the body down. If the athlete’s goal is to lose weight, these supplements often suppress feelings of hunger so that the dieter eats less. For those seeking to bulk up and build muscle mass, health supplements assist by providing the body with large amounts of protein that are crucial for muscle growth. Sports supplements are very valuable in helping athletes recover from high intensity exercise.

We at Arakan Martial Art recommend Australian Sports Nutrition for any athlete looking to perform their martial art at a higher level or simply those that would like to see an improvement in their personal health. For those that are serious about making an effort to live a more active and healthy lifestyle, a combination of Arakan Martial Art and Australian Sports Nutrition health supplements will speed up the results of exercises that could take a significant amount of time to show up otherwise.

Turning your health around with Arakan Martial Art

My journey started when I shared some medical results with my son. I had been diagnosed with cirrhosis of the Liver, ultimately if untreated it would lead to further health complications and diminished quality of life. I asked my doctor what was the cause, I was told it was related to me being over weight (Girth Size). I asked what treatment I needed. I was told "Just lose weight".
I spoke to my family about my condition and what the doctor said. My eldest son , who also does Arakan, said "I have just the thing for you". READ MORE

Almost three years ago I received a call from my instructor Corey asking if I’d like to have a complimentary lesson with him. Almost three years ago I had my mind blown away. I’d just witnessed someone moving in a way I’d never seen before and carry himself with a confidence and humbleness I only ever dreamed of having. I never realised that along the way I’d stop dreaming and start acting to become the person I always wanted to be. READ MORE
