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:
The importance of having a well-functioning and healthy immune system has become increasingly obvious in recent times.
Sadly, everyone seems to have a different answer as to how you should go about strengthening your immune system. When you go to your local health and wellness shop, you might see twenty or thirty products that tout their “immune boosting” powers. An Amazon search reveals thousands of results.
Well, we’re here to tell you about an effective and ancient remedy that has been in use for over two thousand years: the red reishi mushroom.
We’ve all heard about all the negative effects of stress and the modern lifestyle.
We’re all rushing around, overworked, in a constant state of fight-or-flight and it has disastrous effects on our health.
But what if “stress” wasn’t the real problem?
What if our bodies knew exactly how to cope with the intensity of modern life… if we just gave the body what it needed to thrive?
And the key may be one little mineral.
I hope this finds you healthy and able to still get outside (or inside) for a daily run during this trying time of dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many of us are grieving several losses including race cancellations. Though it's a bummer, I want you to know that your hard-earned training is far from wasted.
Those miles are in your legs and all kinds of wonderful benefits have occurred including the addition of mitochondria, adding new capillary beds for increased blood flow, and strengthening the heart muscle for future training.
As athletes, it's important for us to be proactive in maintaining a strong immune system. We're not only doing this for our own prevention but also our loved ones that we spend time with.
