Athletes and fitness gurus are always looking for the best protein supplement. Athletes are searching for the best pre workout supplement and best post workout supplement. Athletes have always sought a competitive edge on their path to victory with many failing and still searching. Many have taken supplements, but without any rhyme or reason, and therefore lacking in positive results. That is until the importance of a pre-workout supplement, and a post workout supplement, were researched and found to be the missing key. The foods and supplements we take before and after working out are the ingredients for a positive exercise session, and a total body recovery.
Before we go to the gym there are specific supplements and foods we should use to ensure the best workout session possible...2-3 hours before the workout begins you will need some power foods for energy, stamina and to protect muscle integrity. Protein and complex carbohydrates are best for this purpose...a Fortifeye Super Protein drink is perfect as your protein source and something as simple as a peanut butter sandwich, or turkey and cheese sandwich, on whole grain bread, will fuel your energy needs. I eat a small piece of fruit, most likely a banana, about 30 minutes before I get into the gym for those quick explosive energy carbohydrates. I also drink a full serving of Fortifeye FIT as my pre-workout drink, it has exactly what my body needs without the heavy sugar load, stimulants, caffeine, artificial flavoring and sweeteners. FIT does not cause my body to "drop out" like the other pre-workout drinks and energy drinks when their sugar and stimulants wear off. You need constant and stable energy throughout your workout, not the up and down rollercoaster ride of the energy drinks. There are 10 ingredients in FIT that were hand picked by two Sports Nutrition Doctors...the ingredients were researched and tested in the lab for their efficacy and direct influence on the entire body during both pre and post workout. All of the ingredients are dosed at a level that makes a difference...so many products only do minimal dosing so they can state it on the label, but really it's just window dressing. For post workout recovery, Fortifeye FIT is most certainly the choice of athletes because of one reason...IT WORKS! When FIT is combined with one of Fortifeye Performance Nutrition Proteins, you have the ultimate recovery fuel. Your body needs protein after the workout ends so it can begin the repair and recovery process. FIT with a scoop of Fortifeye Grass Fed Whey Isolate Protein is an ideal choice because it does not tax the digestive system like a solid food would do, therefore its fast acting and goes to work (repair and recovery) almost immediately. Creatine for building muscle mass and strength... Collagen for ligament and tendon repair... BCAAs for muscle integrity...Velositol, D Ribose and Cluster Dextrin for energy and stamina...Astaxanthin for inflammation reduction, plus additional ingredients that add to the total synergy. Both formulas mix great in just water, and in a shaker, no blender required. You train hard, you put in the time and you sacrifice, so why not receive the most from your training time? You need to set the training stage pre-workout, and the post recovery properly...do it, and see the positive difference.
