You just killed it in the gym or on the field. Boosted by your confidence, you feel more primed and ready than ever to take that giant leap forward towards reaching your goals. Internally however, your muscles are waiting for the green light… begging that you deliver to them exactly what they need at the right time to allow this progress to take place. What you do at this very moment can make or break your efforts. What do you do?
Considered by many to be one of the most important meals of the day
The post workout meal determines the efficacy of the days training session. After intense athletic performance or workouts, your body is ready to absorb whatever it can to start recovering from the stress of intense training. Miss that opportunity or deliver the wrong nutrients and you could negate all the hard work you put it in the gym. Crush it and you could unleash breakthrough new muscle growth. It truly is make or break!
Take advantage of that small window of opportunity with XLR8
ATHLEAN-Rx XLR8 gives your muscles exactly what they need…exactly when they need it most. Take advantage of that small window of opportunity with XLR8′s specially formulated proprietary Whey Isolate blend… designed to deliver the perfect mix of only the highest quality proteins (leaving low grade whey for the other brands). XLR8′s Rapid Repair BCAA Amino Acid Matrix guarantees that you receive the exact combination of fast absorbing branch chain amino acids to begin the repair within minutes of completing your last rep. The InfluX Muscle Growth X-LR8R is Athlean-RX’s specially formulated blend of ingredients including the exciting creatine breakthrough Kre-Alkalyn, and three other growth and recovery promoting compounds.
The post-workout window to X-traordinary results closes quickly. Don’t just slide through…BREAK THROUGH it and set the stage for unparalleled muscle growth with ATHLEAN-Rx XLR8
Whey Protein Isolate/Concentrate Blend
When rapid absorption is the primary goal (as it is immediately following a hard workout), whey protein presents the perfect combination of high quality aminos delivered at a rate at which they can be best utilized for muscle growth during a prime anabolic time… as it’s the fastest digesting protein available. Through it’s peptide chains, whey isolate has the ability to increase blood flow to muscles which significantly speeds up initial recovery after training. That said, not all whey proteins are alike. As in gasoline, there are different grades that reflect the amount of purification that goes into the final product. Basic whey protein falls far behind Whey Concentrate and premium Whey Isolate in it’s ability to effectively produce the benefits listed above. XLR8 combines a blend of only the most purified grades (leaving the basic whey for the other guys to put in their supplements) in order to ensure maximum utilization of protein when the muscles need it the most!
Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s)
BCAA’s are a trio of essential amino acids that are responsible for stimulating protein synthesis (the process in muscle cells that produces hypertrophy) and repairing damaged muscle tissue. When taken together following a workout…leucine, isoleucine, and valine can significantly boost insulin release which helps to flood the trained muscles with an influx of reparative aminos, glycogen restoring glucose, while boosting the absorption of the often stubborn but ultra effective creatine. Taking a post-workout supplement that does not include these powerful anabolic agents can dramatically hinder the benefits you’ll see from your efforts in the gym. As an added benefit, BCAA’s have been shown to limit postworkout muscle soreness enabling you to recover quicker and attack your training with consistent intensity from day to day.
Waxy Maize is a very dense polysaccharide and therefore it quickly bypasses the stomach and enters the small intestines where it is absorbed into the bloodstream extremely quickly. This rapid transport helps improve cell transport and start the muscle repair process sooner within the all important post-workout window. Waxy maize does not cause an insulin spike. It is a quickly and easily absorbed carbohydrate that provides sustained energy maintenance and replenishment.
Kre-Alkalyn is a buffered form of creatine that is processed at a higher PH level than the more acidic creatine monohydrate form. The more acidic the creatine, the more likely it is to chemically be converted into creatinine…the unusable byproduct. The decreased acidity of Kre-Alkalyn allows more of the creatine to be absorbed by the muscles and allows for smaller effective dosages with NO NEED FOR LOADING! This delivery is extremely well tolerated by the body with far less “creatine bloat” experienced and does not have to be cycled allowing you to get the uninterrupted benefits of creatine.
ALA is a significant booster of insulin sensitivity ensuring maximum absorption of key nutrients by the recuperating muscle cells following your workout. In laymen’s terms…with ALA, you can stop watching all of the useful ingredients in your post-workout supplements flush down the toilet and put more of them in the muscles where they can exert their powerful actions.
5-Methyl-7Methoxyisoflavone is a non-hormonal anabolic / anti-catabolic compound that has been shown to increase protein synthesis, preserve bone strength and muscle tendon integrity and improve overall recovery from intense exercise. Our bodies are constantly walking the fine line between anabolic and catabolic states. This flavone has been shown to overwhelmingly tilt the odds of muscle growth in your favor and is quickly becoming one of the most exciting and positively researched options for serious athletes looking for that elusive edge.
