Since you are shredding for that perfect summer body, you may like to consider implementing a fat burner (a fat loss supplement) into your diet.

Carnitine is a very advised supplement when it comes to shredding.
There are 2 forms of carnitine...
Acetyl L-Carnitine is very easily absorbed by the body. It helps assist with cognitive function such as memory and concentration.
Moreover, L-Carnitine is more focused on physical aspects such as energy production, functioning of muscles, lowers cholesterol levels, transports fatty acids into the mitochondria (the energy powerhouse of each cell)... This makes fat more readily available to use during exercise and in consequence burn more fat.
It is advised that the best and most beneficial time to take this supplement is on a empty stomach 30-45 minutes before exercise.
Overall, both forms together will help mentally and physically and remove toxins out of your muscles during exercise (which results in less fatigue and better recovery).
Beta Alanine (in most simplest terms) buffers hydrogen ions. Hydrogen ions lower PH levels in the body resulting in fatigue during intense exercise. Therefore, by supplementing this supplement, it will potentially delay fatigue resulting in improved performance, training volume and enable you to work harder for longer. This will result in higher burnt off calories and a more sculpted summer body physique.
When used in conjunction with a very dedicated training program and a well balanced diet, the above suggested supplements will have you shred that little bit faster as opposed to using nothing at all. We hope you reach your goal or getting that desired summer body you are after. Happy shredding!
