STEP 1: MAGNESIUM
Magnesium is renowned as "the great relaxer" offering athletes relief from muscle cramping, muscle tightness and general fatigue. The majority of Australians are magnesium deficient and so supplementation of this essential mineral is important... especially for those undertaking endurance training.
BSC magnesium uses a blend of different forms of Magnesium including chelate, phosphate, aspartate and malate. Having these differing forms of magnesium allows our body to absorb them well and they are not associated with having the laxative effect of other forms of Magnesium. Additional to the magnesium is a blend of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) which assist in muscle tissue healing
Total Magnesium per serve is 348mg.
General dose: Take 2 tsp daily before bed
Pre-event loading: Take 2 tsp 2x daily
STEP 2: ADVANCED ENDURANCE SPORTS DRINK
This is the core product in the range, covering hydration and energy. It has a complex blend of carbohydrates allowing for immediate energy as well as lasting energy with a total of 22g of carbs per serve.
We also have our electrolyte blend of sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium in their citrate form which helps maintain muscular alkalinity. Electrolytes ensure our body is hydrated and that muscular tissue can continue to contract and relax in a rhythmical fashion.
They have also added a small amount of BCAA in this formula to help prevent muscular breakdown whilst undertaking long training sessions.
General Dose: Approx 1 serve per hour of exercise... this will vary immensely between athletes depending on what exactly they are training for.
STEP 3: RECOVERY PROTEIN
This product is designed to be taken within 30min of finishing your training session. It provides the body with carbohydrates and protein, in the ratio which has been clinically researched as the most effective for muscle repair in endurance athletes.
If you go for a big ride on a Saturday morning and then feel wrecked for the remainder of the day; or if your legs feel heavy after a session and your struggling to come back night after night for another session then this product is essential for you!
Dose: 4 scoops in water immediately after exercise
Can also be used as a "breakfast" before training where food may be causing discomfort.
