Train Longer & Burn More Fat

Train Longer & Burn More Fat Carnitine is a compound biosynthesized from the amino acids lysine and methionine. It's been popular with bodybuilders, and a study published in the Journal of Physiology helps explain why. After supplementing with carnitine for 24 weeks, a group of subjects was able to cycle on a stationary bike for 25% longer than a control group. This endurance support helped subjects burn 50% more fat while using 50% less muscle glycogen.

True Strength Moment: Glycogen is the carbohydrate-replenished fuel your body burns during intense exercise. Once it's used up, you typically don't have anything left to fuel additional lifting, running, swimming or cycling. If carnitine helps your body convert more fat for use as fuel, it could play a part in helping you achieve fitness as well as physique goals.
