Omega 3 (fish oil) is essential for our organism because it supplies a quality source of fat. It has a positive impact on cognitive health and cerebral functions because the more Omega 3 in the composition of protective layers of cells, the better these cells will function. A healthy nervous system enables us to be stronger, faster, and more powerful.
Omega 3s also act as an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory since they have an effect in stabilizing cortisol, the stress hormone. This is an important aspect because after a speed or power training, the body will have endured intense stress and need to recover rapidly. Another interesting aspect of Omegas is that they contribute to the improvement of body composition because of its effects in developing a connection between cell receptors and insulin. Thus permitting the body to adequately manage the amount of glucose consumed and to improve its process to the muscles. If badly executed, this process causes an increase in cortisol, creating an inflammatory response and the body to increase its fat reserves.
It is a great product to use in combination with L-Carnitine, especially for athletes with a lower carbohydrate intake.
Ideally, EPA-DHA is to be consumed during a meal.

This product is an anti-catabolic mix of 27g per portion of meticulously chosen ingredients. The fact is, Post-Training Xtrem is more concentrated in amino acids than any other post-workout product on the market.
Here is why Post-Training Xtrem is a priority in nutritional supplements. With its mix of glycine, magnesium glycinate, glutamine, BCAA, and Taurine, Post-Training Xtrem will stabilize your cortisol level after an intense workout. Why is this important? When you train in power, whether it be in the weight room, running sprints, or game time moments, it creates an enormous stress to the organism and the nervous system. They will respond by asking the adrenal glands to secrete cortisol, the hormone related to stress. A high level of cortisol will considerably slow down recovery of the nervous and muscular systems. Recovery being the most important piece of the puzzle in physical preparation, it's vital to assure that the nervous system, the main generator of power, is fresh and ready for the next workout.
Post-Training Xtrem is the ultimate recovery formula free of any stimulants, carbohydrates or creatine.
Vitamin and mineral supplements are important for all athletes regardless of their discipline. It is a priority to have a daily consumption of these micronutrients since each has its role in the proper functioning of the human body. For example, some vitamins have a powerful antioxidant role, some minerals will act on bone health, while others regulate the synthesis of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.
What is even more interesting for power athletes is that certain vitamins/minerals have a proportionate demand to the total energy spent, as well as the metabolism of carbohydrates. The need may be greater in very physically active people and to whom carbohydrate catabolism is important. The source of energy for power athletes is not only necessarily carbohydrates, but they always need it during recovery phases in-between training or competitions.
Ideally, Pro-Vitamin 2.0 is consumed during a meal.
Pure BCAA is the best formula to obtain the highest concentrations of BCAA combined with a great taste. BCAAs (Branched-chain amino acids) are in fact: L-Leucine, L-Valine, and L-Isoleucine. They are essential to the human body and are only acquired through nutrition. Furthermore, BCAAs represent more than a third of muscle composition in humans and creates better protein synthesis.
It is important to know that power athletes experience a reduction in levels of muscular protein and that their body undergoes stress caused by muscular tears. That being said, BCAAs reduce the negative impact of this phenomenon by supplying muscles with exactly what they need. The simple act of fueling your body with BCAAs during exercise prevents this muscular catabolism. The body then won't have to seek BCAA it needs in its own muscles. By preserving the integrity of muscle fibers during effort and reducing stiffness afterwards, Pure BCAA boosts recovery, giving athletes a possibility of increasing workout frequency while maintaining high levels of performance.

Pure Greens contains phytonutrients that contribute in the maintenance of a strong immune system. In fact, it is a powerful antioxidant source, that helps fight the oxidative stress caused by intense training sessions. Furthermore, this supplement balances the body’s pH by making the organism more alkaline. When we are alkaline, we reduce general body inflammation and reduce the risk of injury. Pure Greens also contain probiotics and digestive enzymes that maintain a healthy intestinal flora and assure proper digestion.
Here is why a power athlete should use Pure Greens: being in an alkaline state can rapidly stop acid accumulation produced during and after effort. Reducing this acid accumulation increases the capacity to sustain intense effort for a long period, reduces cramps, and accelerates recovery. Also, the more a system is alkaline, the more oxygen it will contain, causing to globally improve body pH. Not only do we develop better capacity to use oxygen, but we increase the amount of oxygen available. This will improve recovery time, which is key for power athletes because when recovery is fast and efficient it lets them push their limits for the next workout, or the next set.
Rush Hour outclasses every other pre-workout product on the market. In fact, XPN is the only company offering 6g of Arginine in a simple scoop. In addition to that complete and tasteful mix, there is also: 5g of Creatine Monohydrate, 3g of Beta-Alanine, 3g of Pure BCAA (L-Leucine, L-Valine, L-Isoleucine), 2g of Taurine, 200mg of Caffeine, and superior quality electrolytes.
This formula, being concentrated in amino acids and electrolytes, will give your organism key nutritive elements that each have a precise role to play all while keeping you hydrated when the time to perform arrives. Here are a couple of key points on Rush Hour:
Beta-Alanine is a very fascinating amino acid since it delays the negative effects of lactic acid while working synergistically with Creatine. Creatine is the first source of energy the body will use for efforts of strength, speed, and power. Supplementing our body with Creatine gives our organism a prime element that will enable optimal energy production during training or competition. An efficient energy production that can restore rapidly is really pertinent for power athletes. Knowing that recovery is primordial in physical preparation, note that Creatine will restore energy reserves quickly after effort, giving you the best chance of getting to your next workout fresh and ready to push your limits. Another characteristic of Creatine is that it's an antioxidant, thus diminishing oxidative stress and improving general recovery of the body and cognitive functions.
As for Caffeine, it will create a state of general enhanced mental alertness. In fact, it directly stimulates the sympathetic system to increase strength and power, greatly improving power athletes’ performances and delaying sensations of fatigue.
For the frequent supplements users, Rush Hour could be divided into three products that will optimize the effects of its ingredients and give the ability to manage the dosage of certain ingredients. We suggest the combination of the following products: Caffeine, Absorb X (Creatine Ethyl Ester HCL) and Pre-Training Xtrem.
ZMA+ is a product containing ingredients very useful to optimize sleep. In fact, magnesium is an essential element that contributes to relaxing the nervous system. Having a calm nervous system during the deep sleep phases permits the release of growth hormones. The role of 5-Hydroxytryptophane (5-htp) is to be a serotonin precursor that will favor sleep regulation. Finally there is zinc, this mineral is an essential element to the functioning of over 300 enzymes inside the human body. This makes zinc an important player in the growth and development of the organism, the immune system, as well as in neurologic and reproductive functions. It also contributes positively to the production of testosterone.
Testosterone and growth hormone are two terms that can scare a lot of people when talking about nutritional supplements. Magnesium and zinc are two minerals that the human body is very fond of when comes time to produce its own testosterone and growth hormone. Both of these hormones are essential because they let the body recover between training sessions, recover in sleep, and assure good muscular and physiological health.
Power athletes need at a time strength, speed, and well developed muscular mass. Making ZMA+ an interesting product to take into consideration given its positive impact on hormones, which are the foundations for building a muscular system.
