Why Use the LIIFT4 Supplements?

They’re clinically tested to help you feel more energized to workout, allow you to push harder during exercise and reduce post-workout muscle soreness.

Along with the LIIFT4 meal plan, these supplements can give you an extra boost in your results.

Beachbody Energize LIIFT4 Supplement

Pre-Workout Supplement: Energize

  • Recommended: 1-2 Scoops depending on which meal plan group you’re in
  • Taste: 7/10
  • Effectiveness: 10/10

We take Energize 30 minutes before working out for extra more energy! It contains beta-alanine, green tea and quercetin that help: boost energy and endurance, improve your focus & reflexes and delay exercise-induced fatigue.* You may feel a bit of a tingle from the beta-alanine and that’s totally normal.

When taken over time, the beta-alanine continues to improve your results so stay consistent on using it on workout days for max results.

Order Energize or the LIIFT4 Performance Pack

Beachbody Hydrate LIIFT4 Supplement

During-Workout Supplement: Hydrate

  • Recommended: 1 Scoop
  • Taste: 9/10
  • Effectiveness: 5/10 (for this particular program)

Hydrate replaces electrolytes that we lose when we sweat.* It contains a mix of  sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium to help you feel stronger longer. With all that said, the LIIFT4 workouts are only 20-40 minutes. So you probably aren’t causing your body to get out of balance. If you were cycling or running for miles – this would be more handy.

For LIIFT4, this is one we personally will skip.

Beachbody Recover LIIFT4 Supplement

Post-Workout Supplement: Recover

  • Recommended: 1 Scoop
  • Taste: 10/10 (yum!)
  • Effectiveness: 9/10

Recover comes in chocolate and orange, and guys – that stuff tastes good! We use Recover right after our workout, but you can take it within 30 minutes of finishing.

It’s designed to help your muscles recover after a hard workout. This supplement is probably the most essential for your results in this program – or it’s how we prioritize it!

It’s going to help you recover faster and not be so sore the next day.

The only reason we didn’t give it a perfect score is because you are still going to feel sore after a hard lifting workout — BUT that is going to happen with any workout. This supplement helps with the soreness, and it’s giving your muscles the right stuff to grow.*

It’s also hard to find a cheaper alternative because of the high quality blend of ingredients. Recover contains timed-release combination of whey, pea, and casein proteins, as well as the phytonutrient-dense pomegranate extract. It also has branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) which help promote lean muscle rebuilding – which is what gives us that lean, toned results we want!

Order Chocolate, Orange, or Energize + Recover

Bedtime Supplement: Recharge

  • Recommended: 1 Scoop
  • Taste: 7/10
  • Effectiveness: 9/10

Recharge is a supplement you take 1 hour before going to bed. It helps support muscle recovery while you sleep*. The slow-release casein protein gives your muscles the building blocks they need for recovery. It also contains tart cherry and BCAAs to help reduce soreness and promote lean muscle.*

If you’re lifting heavy and wanting lean muscle gains – this one is up there with Energize and Recover to have!

Beachbody Creatine LIIFT4 Supplement

Another Supplement: Creatine

  • Recommended: 1 Scoop in the higher meal plans
  • Taste: N/A flavorless
  • Effectiveness: 10/10

Unless you’re in one the highest meal plan categories, you won’t need this LIIFT4 supplement.

Creatine helps you gain strength and build muscle mass.* The supplement contains creatine monohydrate which is the most pure, and it dissolves super easily in water.

Creatine monohydrate is the purest, most tested and effective creatine available and has been scientifically shown to help boost strength and power, improve high-intensity performance, and enhance the effects of resistance training.*

Using creatine is a bit different than taking the other supplements. You have to build it up in your body so you’d take 5g of creatine 4x a day for 5 days leading up to starting the program. Then, you’d drop down to 5g per day and take 30 minutes after working out.

Honest Shakeology Review and Testiomial

We also love Shakeology.

If you’re not a meal prepping person  – Shakeology is key! It helps you know you have at least 1 meal prepped and ready to go everyday!

We love the chocolate, but the vanilla and cafe latte are both really great as well. We don’t really like the greenberry or strawberry.

If you’re someone to make every-single-meal super healthy and have in your probiotics, digestive enzymes, and all your nutrients going strong, maybe you skip it. But if you’re looking for convenience, to improve your digestion, or to reduce your cravings – Shakeology can help.
