Since deciding to leave my professional military career in 2011 I’ve been on a quest. As a striving top performer among the professional ranks in triathlon, I can say that even having been deployed to Iraq, I’ve never worked this hard in my life. Without discounting the actual hard work it took to shine in the Military, just know that when working solely for ones-self, the days just don’t seem long enough. All of the added stress, dietary changes, and learning experiences have gotten me here today and I’m happy to say Perfect Amino has helped amplify my daily performance.
In peak season, my triathlon training volume can reach upwards of 32 hours. This isn’t just boring time in the saddle, it’s often very intense. With that effort, my body craves nutrients and it’s clear when I’ve gotten it wrong. I often don’t even realize how tired I am until I’ve decided to take structured rest, at which point my body all but demands non-stop nutrition. Since adding Perfect Amino into my daily routine, I’ve noticed fewer cravings and faster recovery. I’ll skip the deeply rooted science here in order to keep things simple.
Amino acids and protein are most definitely buzzwords among this era of current fitness trends. Most sources and supplements won’t quite reach the mark when it comes to quality, however, I believe Perfect Amino is the standard. With its quick absorption, I’m able to have my cup of black coffee in the am and take in 5-10 pills on the way to the pool. During that period I’ll sustain hard efforts for about 90 minutes totaling in 5000+ yds of pool time. I think it’s worth noting that I also don’t experience a “bonk” or low energy point during this timeframe either. My body, over time, has gotten used to pulling in other sources of fuel that pure glycogen. Fat is a great source of energy but does take some time to tap into. Perfect Amino helps sustain energy levels during these early sessions when I've fasted, meaning breakfast is even more welcome!
Being a professional triathlete means showing up to not only 1 session but often 3 to 4 sessions a day. Without structure, planning and various supplements like Perfect Amino, this would be much more complicated. Training volume is wasted when quality is lost, so this is why I trust and utilize this product regularly. I find I am able to sustain high output during key-sessions, down a few more pills immediately (waiting 26 min to eat after ingestion) and get to the next part of my day feeling energized. The best part of Perfect Amino is that it is approved for use during professional competition, meaning I have the piece of mind that I will not be accused of taking a banned substance.
To sum up my consumption:
In the nearly 8 years that my wife and I have lived in Colorado Springs, never have we seen the amount of road construction currently taking place. Whether it’s a main road or side street, there’s no part of town missing out on the “fun”. And it’s not just re-paving or patching potholes. Whole lanes are being ripped up with miles of digging in order to replace underground pipes of all varieties.
At first, I thought all the “weed” sales (pot is legal in Colorado) might be producing the influx of tax funds for all this construction. But a running buddy of mine made me aware of a bill that had passed in the last couple years which freed up an enormous amount of funds for these projects.
Turns out the city has a certain amount of time to spend the money. Based on the number of orange cones and “ROAD WORK AHEAD” signs, it looks as though no penny is being spared.
Millions of people are about to be disappointed –– they don’t even realize it.
Maybe you’re one of them.
Right now, around the world, people are setting new ambitious health goals and resolutions.
And yet, according to Inc Magazine, approximately 80% of New Year's resolutions fail. Most of them buried in an unmarked early grave by February.
Why is that?
How is it that despite all our best intentions and genuine desire to live healthier and be fitter, the most we can hope for is a depressing 20% success rate?
So to help you kickstart your New Year with a healthy lifestyle we are going to breakdown why most goals and resolutions fail and what to do instead.
