When it comes to the type of scientific studies that are published, not all are created equal. At Isagenix, we know a good study when we see it. And a great study just came out on creatine.
Dr. Paul Biondich explains the pros and cons of high-intensity interval training (HIIT), resistance training, and cardio and how to get maximum results from each. He also shares his tried-and-true nutritional protocol that he uses to train his elite athletes.
Lately carbohydrates have been getting a bad rap in the athletic world, yet they are central to performance. The body even stores them in the liver and muscles as glycogen so they can constantly supply energy.
Any athlete or person wanting to maximize their workouts knows the feeling of all-out exertion. Lifting weights until muscle failure, sprinting all-out for 100 meters, and simply going until you can’t go anymore are ways to increase exercise performance.
Gone are the days of athletes loading up with artificially sweetened performance-enhancing powders to get bigger, faster, and stronger. Athletes are now looking beyond just better performance from their sports nutrition products—they’re looking for natural, nutritious ingredients that are safe and good for their health.
The reality for the majority of athletes is that endurance and strength capacities decline with age. In general, you’re more likely to have decreased cardiac output, increased resting heart rate, and a diminished heart function.
An increasing number of athletes are choosing plant-based nutrition to fuel their bodies. Their reasons can range from health concerns to taste preference. A few athletes even choose a vegetarian diet for performance, considering it a “cleaner” way to fuel their workouts.
As an elite athlete, your nutritional demands separate you from others. In a majority of cases, elite athletes may require individualized dietary counseling to address their highly specific nutritional needs. But with a few considerations and the help of Isagenix products, you may find an advantage while making important nutritional choices for your sport.
Elite athletes don’t fit the conventional dietary mold. With the extreme physical and physiological demands they place on their bodies, they must make special considerations when it comes to their nutrition, supplementation, and recovery.
Your workouts can only be as intense as your body’s ability to deliver oxygen and nutrients to working muscles while removing waste products. The transport of these metabolic materials throughout your body comes down to your circulatory system.
