A PerfectAmino Testimonial

Tracy Arntson - Bikini Competiton 2015

by Tracy Arntson

I wanted to share with you how Perfect Amino helped me while I trained for my first bikini/fitness competition. First, I have been using it for 6 years. I used it the entire time I was pregnant with both my children and felt so good knowing I was getting some good quality protein during my pregnancy and while nursing.

Even on really hard lifting days I rarely had muscle soreness. If I did experience soreness it was never long lasting or very intense. I can only attribute to the Perfect Amino.  

But let's talk about the competition…I decided about 8 weeks out that I wanted to compete. I was in relatively good shape and knew with commitment I could be stage ready in that amount of time. As you probably know when a person is prepping for any stage competition muscle definition and fast loss is all that matters (well besides posing). So I immediately starting cutting calories. Initially I went from 2000 calories down to 1500. I continued to lift very heavy 5 days a week so of course protein was high on my priority list. I slowly saw fat loss but the interesting part was that I saw strength increase. Most people will tell you to simply maintain your current weights for your lifts but I never felt the need. I felt great so I increased weight each session. To top it off, I was rarely sore. Even on really hard lifting days I rarely had muscle soreness. If I did experience soreness it was never long lasting or very intense. I can only attribute to the Perfect Amino.  

Four weeks from the competition I dropped to 1300 calories a day but kept workouts the same--5 days a week. My trainer kept telling me I needed to cut out a day but I'm not always the best listener and continued. Yes there were moments when I wanted chocolate and pie and cookies but that's normal when you are on a limited diet with limited calories. But I never felt miserable. It was almost more psychological cravings and I simply had to learn to fight through that. In addition to training 60-90 minutes a day, I was also posing 30 minutes a day 7 days a week, and was a single mom to 2 children ages 4 and 6. Yet, for the most part, I had the energy to do what I needed to do each day. Most of my friends who compete are miserable at this stage. The most amazing thing? The week before my competition I set a PR doing hip thrusts pushing 185#. I probably could have done more.  

In a separate email I will send you some before and after photos as well as photos from the day of the competition. I just wanted to thank you for creating this product. It's truly like nothing else on the market. 

With thankfulness,

Tracy

Charging Your Body's Electrical System
Charging Your Body's Electrical System

You know that the cardiovascular system is responsible for pumping blood and oxygen throughout your system, right? And that the endocrine system manages hormones? And that your nervous system relays messages throughout your body?

Well, underlying all these systems is an astoundingly complex electrical system.

This electrical system is busy sending an almost uncountable number of messages to the muscles, bones, brain, and the cells. The human brain is the home to approximately 100 billion neurons, each firing about 200 times every second.

Sometimes it feels like there are more types and brands of water than drops in the ocean. You go to the grocery store and discover a huge shelf packed with different brands of water that all claim to be health-beneficial. Add in the hundreds of in-house water purifiers, and it can seem like a “sea” of confusing options (cue the pun).

Thankfully, your choice doesn’t have to be that complicated.
