#1 Cyborg Sports WPI
WPI stands for Whey Protein Isolate which is a grade of protein that is a more refined powder which is light and easy to digest, this also allows for faster absorption rates which is essential and our preferred protein for workout timings.
We advise utilising 0.4g of protein x your body weight pre and post workout (in relation to resistance training RT). By accomodating to this dosage you will ensure sufficient dosage of the amino acid Leuciene for your muscle protein synthesis (MPS), In basic terms; the regenerating of your muscles for growth.
#2 Creatine Monohydrate
Creatine Monohydrate is the most studied along side protein for its positive enhancement on the human body.
You need to look at creatine in the same eyes you do for carbohydrates, however creatine is the super powered version of carbs.
Creatine Monohydrate stores as CP (Creatine phosphate) in the body which stores like glycogen (carbs) which when energy demand exceeds supply limits, these storage facilities come into play to supply the demand. Creatine is used in high anaerobic thresholds so for example; Sprints, Explosive Jumps, 1-3 Rep PBS, Punching. Essentially any movement that is so quick that lactate acid doesn't become noticable.
We recommend to use for MALES - 25g/day for 7 days, following the 7 days drop down to 5g daily for maintenance.
For FEMALES - 21g/day for 7 days, following the 7 days drop down to 5g daily for maintenance.
#3 Switch Nutrition Adrenal Switch
The number one killer to fat loss and muscle gain is stress... CORTISOL!
Cortisol is a stress hormone that is responsible for breakdown, so when we train it breaks down your muscle for it to then be synthesised again.
When we are in an argument it will secrete which increases the level of the cortisol hormone and increases adrenaline as your fight or flight response. When you are stressed physically or mentally, cortisol is going to be a higher levels than base line which is completely normal.
However when the tools of food, sleep, recovery, or the inevitable is not preventable that is when cortisol can be causing more harm than good.
We recommend to add Adrenal Switch to your regime at 30 mins prior to bed or post workout following the hour to help lower your cortisol through Ashwaganda and if taken prior to bed it will assist in supporting better sleep quality (REM).
