Post-JYM is a post-workout supplement made by JYM Supplement Science.
It’s designed to improve recovery after workouts, and provide an extra shot of performance-boosting ingredients.
JYM Supplement Science was founded by well-known scientist and bodybuilder, Jim Stoppani.
Glutamine is an amino acid which is known to improve muscle recovery and growth.
Research, however, shows that it may be unnecessary if the user is already consuming enough protein or Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) (1).
Branched Chain Amino Acids, or BCAAs, are the amino acids which are most crucial for muscle growth.
Research has shown them to significantly improve muscle recovery and development (2).
Creatine is an organic acid, mostly found in animal food products.
Supplementing with creatine has been shown to increase athletic performance, especially power output (3).
More studies are needed to determine how effective this hydrochloride form is.
Beta-Alanine is a beta-amino acid.
It reduces the effects of fatigue, by creating more carnosine in the body.
This combats the free-radical and acid build-up caused by intense exercise (4).
The effective dose is about 2-5g.
Betaine, also known as trimethylglycine, is a compound present in sugar beets.
The research so far shows that it may increase power output and lean body mass (5).
The effective dose is around 2.5g.
L-Carnitine-L-Tartrate is best known for its fat-burning properties and ability to increase power output.
An additional benefit, however, is its ability to improve recovery after high-volume resistance training (6).
2g per day is a good dose for this.
Who Takes It?
Athletes wanting a supplement that will help them recover, grow, and improve their athletic performance will enjoy using Post-JYM.
How to Take
Mix 1 scoop (19g) with 250mL cold water, and consume straight after your workout.
Creatine may cause a gain in water weight, from water retention in the muscles.
Beta-Alanine may cause a tingling sensation in the face and skin.
- Includes a range of compounds that improve muscle growth and recovery
- Contains extra performance-boosting ingredients
Post-JYM is yet another well-made product from the JYM Supplement Science range.
It’s designed to provide a range of ingredients that will immediately help you recover from intense workouts, and prevent any muscle breakdown.
It also contains the “other half” of the performance-boosting ingredients found in Pre-JYM, which are best absorbed in separate doses.
Post-JYM is a solid product which will give you a small edge. However, it’s not very cost-effective, and may not be worth it unless you’re a competitive bodybuilder.
