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.
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.
Nitrates are compounds found in a variety of foods and are even produced by our own bodies. Most dietary nitrates are derived from vegetables, which soak up nitrogen from the soil and convert it to nitrates in vegetables. Since the complexities of dietary nitrates and their impact on performance can be confusing, we’re breaking down the science of dietary nitrates so that you can understand a little more about the benefits of eating more vegetables:
Endurance athletes are unique in their nutritional requirements, largely due to the fact that endurance exercise requires greater amounts of fuel. Preparation comes down to ensuring you get the right amounts of carbohydrates and other supplemental nutrients at the right time. Endurance athletes also need to get adequate protein to offset muscle protein breakdown and hasten recovery.
The first in a four part series on the new Performance Line, AMPED, focuses on AMPED NOx. Isagenix Research Nutritionist Alex Mohr, M.Sc. and CSCS, dives into the science behind the nutritional make-up of NOx and how it works to help you push through fatigue and exhaustion in a grueling workout. No matter what your workout regime or sport is, Alex argues that it is beneficial for everyone, and is shown to support exercise at all levels of intensity.
When you want your body ready for the ultimate high-intensity workout, the right preparation can make a big difference. You want a pre-workout stack that includes the right ingredients, comes in the right dosage, and is backed by science. AMPED™ NOx, AMPED Power, and e+™ work together to power you up before a workout. The two AMPED products and e+ each provide their own unique benefits that complement one another.
The AMPED™ product line is much more than a few meager sports supplements. It’s a comprehensive performance system that covers you nutritionally from the moment you begin your workout to the moment you begin the recovery process. With the new additions of AMPED NOx taken pre-workout, AMPED Fuel taken mid-workout, and AMPED Recover taken post-workout, you can begin each workout armed with high-quality nutrition for top performance.
Go farther, train harder, lose weight, and increase muscle with the AMPED™ Performance line, designed to help people like you from everyday athletes to ultramarathon trainers. Research Nutritionist Alex Mohr, M.Sc., explains the benefits of AMPED Nox, Fuel, Power, Recover, and the soon-to-be rebranded Replenish™ as AMPED Hydrate. Alex discusses how this comprehensive line of products effectively sustains users nutrient wise from the hours before a workout to recovery.
Do you remember the last time you sprinted at an all-out pace or lifted weights until failure? You may recall having noticed a distinct “burning” in your working muscles that caused you so much pain that you couldn’t continue. At this point, you stopped to rest.
As an athlete or someone who works out, chances are you’ve heard of nutrient timing. It’s the nutritional strategy that’s based on getting specific types of nutrients at specific times to maximize training adaptation or enhance performance.
