Fitness Authority Xtreme 3R has been engineered to equip the athlete/bodybuilder with a recovery system predicated on the notion that recovery can be supported by mitigating the degree of trauma muscle experience during training. In other words, it's been suggested that damage to muscle can be modulated through the use of glutamine and BCAA. As a result, recovery time is optimal, but timing of consumption and ratios among constituents are critical.
Intense weight training results in an enormous metabolic demand for protein – as much as 300% higher than basal requirements where it concerns structural protein mechanics. Banging iron in the gym as well as other forms of intense training is a catabolic event. Intense training causes a negative nitrogen balance increasing cortisol, adrenaline and glucagon. This is normal and necessary, but these hormones are indeed catabolic and drive nitrogen to a negative state. The ingestion of branched-chain amino acids and glutamine during this high stress environment has been suggested to promote the maintenance of lean muscle.
By directly supplementing glutamine and branched-chain amino acids during intense exercise, both the signal and the amount of skeletal muscle breakdown are optimized, minimizing the amount of micro-trauma experienced. The latter is supported particularly when sipping Xtreme 3R in between sets throughout the first half of the workout. Glutamine consumed when training will elevate glutamine plasma concentrations, which has been suggested to prevent the premature release of glutamine from skeletal muscle back into circulation.
Fitness Authority formulators firmly hold that heavy supplementation with both glutamine and BCAA during periods of intense training and muscle stress will promote an optimal nitrogen balance and support recovery during/after training. Xtreme 3R may be the only sports supplement to promote all three stages of energy metabolism; ATP / CP Pathway, Glycolytic Pathway and Oxidative Pathway. It is no wonder that Xtreme 3 R® supports an individual's training capacity far into the oxidative pathway. Fitness Authority recommends that all hard-training athletes ingest an approximate dosage of 0.2 grams per pound of body weight. That means that if your current body weight is 200 lbs, use 40 grams. One intake strategy is to take all of it during training, sipping it in between sets. Another would be to take half prior to training and the other half immediately after. Xtreme 3R should be consumed every day!
Contest training bodybuilders and anyone on a diet should use 2 doses a day starting 8 to 12 weeks prior to the event to minimize muscle losses associated with calorie reduction. BCAA promotes muscle retention during periods of restricted low caloric intake. WARNINGS: Keep out of reach of children. Before beginning any program, consult your health care practitioner.
