Having taken three Arnold Classic Crowns, and several other esteemed bodybuilding titles, Ryan Terry isn’t short of achievements. But there was one title he was still chasing; Mr. Olympia Men’s Physique Champion.
After several eye-wateringly close Mr. Olympias where Ryan was placing in the top five, a few weeks ago Ryan achieved the title he had been coveting for so long when he was crowned Men’s Physique Champion at Mr. Olympia.
I managed to catch Ryan just after his Olympia win to find out what a daily supplement routine looks like for a Mr. Olympia champion. And he let us in on everything.
To kick off his supplement routine, Ryan starts off with a Daily Multivitamin. Packed with vitamins A, C D3, E, as well as thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin, this little tablet helps keep your daily wellbeing in top shape.
Ryan always starts the day with fasted cardio, but he has a couple of supps that give him that extra push first thing.
“In the morning, I always go do my fasted cardio, but I’ll always have Impact EAAs, Strawberry and Lime flavour and L-Carnitine Tablets, those two are an absolute must.”
Impact EAAs are amino acids that your body needs but can’t make itself. These nine essential amino acids are the building blocks of protein, and it can be tough, particularly for those who don’t eat a lot of meat or dairy, to get enough EEAs through food alone. That’s where the Impact EAAs come in.
Next, it’s a post-workout classic. Good old oats.
“Straight after training, I’ll have two scoops of Impact Whey in my porridge, either Chocolate, Chocolate Orange or Chocolate Mint, those are my three favourite flavours.”
It’s no surprise that Ryan uses the OG of protein – Impact Whey Protein. And it’s an OG of a reason, with 23g* of protein per serving, an excellent amino acid profile and loads of flavours to choose from.
Into the afternoon Ryan’s gearing up for his second workout and first weights session of the day.
“In the afternoon, I do my full weight training session, I take my Impact EAAs before and maltodextrin.”
In the most basic terms, maltodextrin gives 50g of carbs to provide a quick boost of energy, making it essential for during Ryan’s second workout of the day.
After this workout, Ryan needs a boost of carbs and of course, protein.
"I’ll have an Impact Whey Protein shake with two scoops of maltodextrin; I try to keep it really simple.”
Take home message
We can’t all be crowned a Mr. Olympia Champion, but there’s definitely a few tips to take away from Ryan’s daily supplement routine. His main piece of advice? Keep it simple. Don’t overcomplicate with tons of different supplements, just stick to what you know works for you.
