The 2 Must Have Supplements When Traveling For Competition

When it comes to triathlon or in fact any endurance event, the task requires months of preparation. I think it goes without mention that as life happens; we often change plans that have already been adapted due to injury or illness. In short, we can never truly plan for every aspect of a race lasting over 4 hours. For me, it’s a normal occasion. I routinely put my body and mind through over 30 hours of weekly training volume chasing greatness in the sport of triathlon.

I raced IRONMAN Austria on July 2 and within 3 weeks will be competing in another Challenge Family triathlon, located in Iceland. Being separated from home, I can’t really plan for the staple comforts and recovery protocols that I usually love. For that reason, I need to bring a few items that really pack a punch when taking part in international competition. For me, BodyHealth’s PerfectAmino and Healthy Sleep Ultra are always near my bed.

Moving 6 hours ahead in a time zone can really negatively impact restful sleep, especially on long flights. I’ve found that with the help of Healthy Sleep Ultra, I’ve been able to adapt to a new time zone within a few days, never feeling like a zombie. Why? It’s because unlike other sleep aids, I never wake up feeling lousy. I awake feeling charged up and ready to go.

Healthy Sleep Ultra helps me stay asleep once I finally nod off. Meaning I don’t wake up in the middle of the night through sleep cycles. Any athlete can tell you how sound sleep can greatly improve performance and recovery, so getting on a schedule quickly is extremely important.

 

How much Healthy Sleep do I take?

I take 2 pills about 60 min before I’m ready to sleep. I start a book and before I know it, it’s time for breakfast and coffee. I really only need to take this great supplement a few times a month during heavy bouts of training when the body is a bit restless. Thus far, it’s the most reliable sleep-aid I’ve found that actually works well and doesn’t create a dependency.

 

Muscle repair is equally important.

I took a little spill during my IRONMAN and suffered some bruising with a few minor cuts. I started taking PerfectAmino, 10 pills every 9-12 hours after the race and by the second day, when walking was painful, I climbed a mountain - 6,000ft elevation on the road bike. Needless to say, my legs were able to perform very well but most importantly; my energy was back very quickly.

I think racing two big events in short succession means you must really give the body a boost. It’s actually mandatory for me. Last year I raced IRONMAN Austria and IRONMAN Zurich within 3 weeks of each other, with the same protocols with great success.

I guess you could say that without having some reliable, quality and fully legal supplements on my side, my training and racing would suffer and most likely hit all time lows.

I recommend you give these products a try. I hope they work for you as well as they work for me!

Good luck!

Supplemental molecular hydrogen, also known as H2, is becoming increasingly popular for many health concerns due to its effective and safe action as a targeted antioxidant.

The True Cost of Eating Healthy

Today we're going to talk about one of the biggest perceived reasons it is hard to be healthy: the cost of healthy food.

And yes, I said "perceived" – because the cost of food does not have to be a barrier. Almost anyone can turn a diet around without paying more for your food – and in fact, will end up saving money in the long run.

The reasoning behind this is simple... read on to learn why.
