Power Training

Raw strength and explosive power is essential for competing in many sports including football, hockey, rugby, powerlifting and track and field events like shot put.

Serious athletes have a supplement plan that goes hand-in-hand with their workout routines. Here is a GNC shopping list for power training.

Power Training List

Optimum Nutrition™ 100% Whey Gold Standard™

Protein Power

The foundation of any serious bodybuilder’s supplement list is a high-quality protein source. Serious power athletes add protein sources that provide muscle recovery potential both day and night.

Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard features whey protein isolates which are pure, muscle-building protein sources that are low in fat, cholesterol and lactose. This product is a great option for a post-workout recovery shake. Whey protein also provides your body with amino acids that move quickly through the digestive system to help your muscles recover after intense workouts.

GNC Pro Performance® AMP Amplified Mass XXX™

Promote Muscle Mass

GNC Pro Performance® AMP Amplified Mass XXX is a formula designed to increase lean mass, weight, strength and stamina. For maximum results, take Amplified Mass XXX daily. On training days, take it immediately after exercise and on non-training days, take it first thing in the morning or between meals. This is a great product for power athletes trying to gain mass.

GNC Beyond Raw® Re-Feed

Night-Time Recovery

Time-released absorption of protein at night, when your body typically goes for hours without food, is beneficial for muscle recovery. To achieve this, add a casein protein blend such as GNC BEYOND RAW® Re-Feed to your supplement list. Re-Feed includes 10g of glutamine to support recovery along with essential aminos, vitamins, minerals and botanicals to fuel your muscles.


The Cellucor® C4® line delivers some of the most award-winning pre-workout formulas available. C4 50X™ provides 50% more explosive energy to power the most extreme workouts. It features creatine nitrate and patented TeaCor™ theacrine and XCELICOR™ caffeine. Take as directed about 20-30 minutes before you work out.


Each serving of Force Factor® Test X180 contains Testofen® fenugreek extract and L-citrulline, a potent amino acid that boosts nitric oxide production. Test X180 also includes ginseng, Tribulus terrestris, and cordyceps. Take as directed 30 minutes before workouts.
