Top Supplements: Owners Choice

L-carnitine, bovine colostrum and BCAA’s…..my absolute favorite supplement combination, nearly zero calories, growth factors and extreme recovery. If you haven’t tried any or all 3 of these great products, you should. L-carnitine by Gaspari in the way of Carnipure yields 1000mg of L-carnitine per scoop. L-carnitine releases stored fat to be used as an energy source. Nutrasumma’s Colostrum is a highly bioavailable and concentrated form of bovine colostrum. Colostrum is great for muscular endurance, recovery and new muscle growth.

The final component of our stack is 5%’s All Day You May which is bcaa’s plus a whole host of recovery agents which really separates it from other BCAA formulas on the market. These 3 great items are available at The Fit Factory and if you mention “Secret Stack”, you will receive $10 of the combination of these 3 already great priced products. Guys and gals alike, lets burn some bodyfat, add some new muscle and recover like never before. CARNIPURE+COLOSTRUM+ALL DAY YOU MAY

This is of primary importance to those seeking change. In effect, we open pathways via High Intensity Training for the human body to utilize rest and food to grow stronger and become a more efficient fat burning machine.

Why BCAA’s Are For EVERYONE

Happy Saturday everyone. I hope you’ve all had a blessed week. Let’s talk muscle building, specially what to ingest after a weight training session.

 

Hopefully you’re all familiar with BCAA’s….leucine, isoleucine and valine are our BCAA’s and they are responsible for a good portion of muscle growth and recovery, which believe it or not, are one in the same. You cannot make gains without compensation in the way of food and rest. So how do we get this process started quickly, post workout? Now before I get into this, ladies (and some of you fellas) who say I’m not trying to “get all big and muscular”, let me assure you, you are. Hormones and a host of other factor dictate how “big and muscular” we get, but the name of the game is adding muscle tissue because muscle burns fat. I’ll repeat that point because it’s terribly important and misunderstood, MUSCLE BURNS FAT.

 

Leucine is of particular importance for muscle growth because it activates the mTOR pathway, which initiates protein synthesis. BMC Physiology cited an Australian study using cultured muscle cells which showed that leucine does in fact turn on the mTOR pathway, but that insulin was more important for lining up amino acids involved in making new proteins and for promoting the movement of amino acids into muscle cells.

 

What does that mean to you and me? It means that the very best way to stimulate muscle growth post workout is combining your BCAA’s (many varieties in stock at The Fit Factory by the way:) with carbohydrates, in a liquid form. I’ve been advocating this for years, my personal favorite is the Betancourt Pure Amino (sweetened with Stevia) with ALLMAX’s Carbion. Myopharma’s MyoRecovery is also a fine choice as it contains not just BCAA’s but also electrolytes, glutamine, and creatine. The dose can be adjusted according to you bodyweight and bodyfat %.

 

If you are not currently combining your BCAA’s and carbs into a post workout drink, stop hampering your progress and stop by The Fit Factory to pick some of these fine muscle building products up-at the lowest possible prices. Enjoy your weekend!
