Cycling is a demanding sport requiring Power, Endurance and Strength. The key requirements of cyclists are to recover properly from intense rides and to have sufficient energy during those rides. Boditronics has two products that are very popular with cyclists both amateur and professional, that when combined with correct diet and training regimes make a real difference to recovery and performance.
Many cyclists choose just to take water rather than an engineered supplement during training or competition.
However extensive research has shown that high levels of Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs), Taurine and correct Electrolytes taken during training or competition not only massively aids recovery but can also greatly enhance performance, strength and power, when taken continuously as part of proper diet and training regime. Intracell is a best kept secret for cyclists and could be just what you need to get that extra edge in competition. Used in conjunction with RecoverEX, Intracell is a powerful tool in going that extra mile. Intracell features very high amounts of BCAAs combined with peptide bonded Glutamine, Citruline, Taurine and Electrolytes for optimum performance and Hydration during and after your ride.
If you are planning morning fasted or long cycle rides, you need to ensure that your training is not detrimental to your muscle mass. It is easy to impair recovery and strength if you are not eating or supplementing correctly.
Boditronics BCAA Professional has been designed to deliver potent amounts of Branch Chain Amino Acids. BCAAs are essential in the muscle building and recovery process, as they make up 33% of human muscle mass.
Probably the most important time for cyclists is the 30 minute window after training or competing. During this time your body is flooded with the stress hormone cortisol, your muscles glycogen levels are heavily depleted and your body is in a catabolic state. High levels of cortisol cause your body to go catabolic. This means your muscles are in effect being broken down even after you have ceased training. Failure to halt this catabolism by blunted cortisol release will lead to poor recovery, fatigue, over training and will severely impair your performance going forward.
RecoverEX is a research backed, scientifically engineered recovery formula favoured by cyclists everywhere. RecoverEX blunts cortisol release and refuels your muscle glycogen levels quicker after training or competitions. It also helps repair damaged muscle tissue and helps muscles not only recover faster but grow stronger. Regularly using within 30 minutes of training or competition will not only reduce DOMS (delayed onset muscle Soreness), the aching you experience the day after, but will aid your performance in the future by ensuring repaired muscle tissue regenerates stronger than before.
RecoverEX contains the finest Whey Protein Isolate, Glutamine Peptides, Leucine and Phenylanine. In research it was shown that approved amounts help repair muscles, allowing athletes to recover from strenuous exercise faster and more completely than protein alone.
RecoverEX contains a precise researched ratio of complex and simple carbohydrates which helps refuel glycogen levels and blunt cortisol, which is a major cause of catabolism (muscle breakdown) post exercise.
Both RecoverEX and Intracell are available in market-leading refreshing juice flavours, rather than heavy milk shake flavours. This means it is light, tasty and easy to consume immediately, post strenuous exercise and does not bloat or sit heavy on the stomach like some other recovery products.
