Kratom for bodybuilding

With kratom being referred to as ‘the king of pre-workouts’, plenty of bodybuilders and weightlifters have sworn by kratom’s ability to help them endure high-intensity workouts. Since kratom is helpful for stimulating the body and recovery, it’s no wonder it’s grown popular for workouts.

You could take kratom before a workout to increase energy levels in the same way as coffee. But, the type of kratom vein is very important in determining the effects it is going to have.

Green and white veins are known to increase energy and positivity while protecting the body from excessive discomfort. So, either one of these veins or a combination of both should be your workout fuel.


When bodybuilders take small amounts of kratom (usually between 2 to 5 grams), it ensures that the body will have enough energy to go through a heavy workout session that could result in painful soreness. Kratom helps relieve that discomfort because of the alkaloids it contains. 


However, this absolutely does not mean that kratom will completely numb your body and make you extremely energized and hyped-up. It is essentially a natural supplement just like any other, so therefore it doesn’t have any major or serious effects on your body (if you make sure to use it in controlled and personalized doses). 


Which strains are the best?

Now that you know how to use kratom for bodybuilding, you might be wondering which strains are the best for improving your fitness routine. 


Maeng da

The type of strain used should depend on the individual’s taste and preference. What research tells us is that maeng da is very popular in the world of bodybuilding and powerlifting. Maeng da is hand-made in a process called grafting, and it’s much more effective than other strains. This is because maeng da actually has the highest alkaloid content, making this strain as strong as kratom can get. This is why we accentuate using small and controlled doses.

That being said, it’s still a good idea to choose between green or white maeng da instead of red.
