One of my biggest challenges during training or competing has always been finding the perfect diet or supplement that will give me the boost that I need. When I was competing in Masters Swimming I was having difficulty with my energy levels during training and subsequent recovery. I was spending a small fortune on supplements none of which were working. I decided to get some advice from a registered dietitian and used the whole foods approach. I was eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches before my workouts and drinking non-fat chocolate milk after. That still didn’t work. I was completely lost at what to do next.
Then one day I stumbled upon Herbalife 24 and decided to give those supplements a shot. What convinced me to try them was the science behind the product and the fact that the scientists behind them are competitive athletes.
While swimming I used a product called prolong. Prolong is used during extended or intense exercise, Prolong provides a dual-source carbohydrate blend for immediate and sustained energy. Bioavailable electrolytes help support muscle contraction and maintain a properly functioning cellular environment, while whey protein isolate helps reduce muscle breakdown, speeding recovery time. All with a subtle, easy-to-drink flavor.
Dual-source carbohydrate blend facilitates caloric utilization.
Whey protein isolate helps reduce muscle breakdown.
850 mg electrolytes support proper muscle function.
B Vitamins support carbohydrate metabolism.
500% DV Vitamin C helps combat free radicals.
Over 850 mg electrolytes.
12:1 carb-to-protein ratio.
This product is a powder that you shake up with water and drink it while you train or compete. It is for extreme trainings or competitions that last 40 minutes or longer.
I also used their product called Rebuild Endurance. I would take that product by mixing it with water and drinking it immediately after my workout.
Rebuild Endurance speeds recovery from aerobic exercise by enhancing glycogen replenishment and initiating repair of damaged muscles.
Branched-chain amino acids, whey and casein proteins create a rapid and sustained protein-building state.
Carbohydrate blend replenishes muscle glycogen.
Tri-core protein-amino blend of free amino acids, whey and casein proteins help rebuild muscle and speed recovery.
L-Glutamine supports immune function and promotes muscle repair.
L-Carnitine reduces recovery time.
14 g Tri-Core Protein Amino Blend.
2000 mg L-Glutamine.
1000 mg L-Carnitine.
2000 mg BCAA.
The results were nothing short of a miracle. I had more sustained energy than I ever had before. My workouts were getting easier and I was was recovering quicker. In fact I was so energized the rest of the day it was if I had not even trained. I am completely sold on these products.
