Take Advantage Of Your Anabolic Window

THE FASTER YOU RECOVER, THE FASTER YOU WILL SEE RESULTS

After putting in another hard session in the gym make sure to look after your post-workout recovery. Post-workout recovery products are useful for areas such as:

  • Muscle energy storage for your next workout*
  • Providing fast-absorbing protein in order to repair muscle tissue*
  • Fighting lean muscle tissue breakdown (catabolism)*
  • A healthy immune system for handling stress from exercise*

Rest and good nutrition are important directly after a workout session, which is where post-workout recovery products come in!

Isolate Your Opportunities

YOUR MOST IMPORTANT MEAL OF THE DAY

Immediately after your workout is the prime time to get nutrients to your muscles for repairing and rebuilding. Don't shoot yourself in the foot by denying your body of good nutrients after a hard workout. Whey protein comes in various forms, but in general is a fast-absorbing protein that is most useful as a post-workout protein.

Whey is fast, effective, and incredibly convenient. You can find powders that are lean or carb and calorie-heavy, making it great for cutters and builders alike. Some common forms of whey include hydrolyzed whey, whey protein isolate, and whey protein concentrate.

Use whey for your post-workout protein and build the road to your fitness goals!

Timing Is Everything

USE CREATINE TO COMBAT CATABOLISM

If you are pushing yourself and completing your sets and reps in the gym, then your muscle energy is going to be depleted at the end of your workout. Failing to replenish this storage form of energy in the muscle tissue can put you at risk for fatigue during your next workout.

That's why adding creatine to your post-workout recovery protocol is an extremely wise decision. By taking creatine when the muscles are most in need, you can take a big step towards fighting fatigue.*

Check out the most popular creatine forms such as Monohydrate, Kre-Alkalyn. Micronized, and Chelate and kick your recovery into gear!*

Don't Forget Your Glutamine

FOR FAST REPAIR AND GROWTH

Intense workout sessions on a regular basis can put significant wear and tear on the body, and glutamine is important in supporting the fight against catabolic activity.* Fatigue, frequent illness, and sore muscles are some of the most common signs that your body is unequipped to deal with the stresses being placed upon it.

Because glutamine is greatly depleted during physical activity, supplementing with glutamine post-workout is great for boosting your overall rate of recovery and supporting the immune system.* For best results, be sure to take it immediately after your workout and then again before you go to bed.

Don't Leave A Chink In Your Armor

BULLET-PROOF YOUR RECOVERY WITH BCAA'S

A post-workout shake without branched chain amino acids (BCAA's) is like a rock band without a drummer. Since these are the essential amino acids that the muscles cannot make themselves, supplementing with isolated BCAA's is great for boosting your body's recovery efficiency and protein synthesis.* Because BCAA's are limiting nutrients, deficiency can result in inefficient recovery, so keep everything in sync proper BCAA supplementation.

For best results, take one serving as directed by the package immediately after your workout session.
