Rugby requires several disciplines in order to achieve peak performance. Speed, Power, strength, endurance and recovery are all important to the top rugby player, and the following products are recommended as the core of a good supplementation regime. All are used extensively by top rugby players to help them achieve these goals.
Probably the most important time for athletes is during 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 or playing. Failure to halt this catabolism by blunting 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 top athletes. RecoverEX blunts cortisol release and refuels your muscle glycogen levels fast after training or matches. It also helps repair damaged muscle tissue and helps muscles not only recover faster but grow stronger. Regularly using RecoverEX within 30 minutes of training or matches 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 includes research backed amounts of protein, BCAAs, glutamine and fast absorption carbohydrates.

Strenuous training and matches puts a player's body under great stress. This means the body's requirements for Vitamins and minerals increases dramatically, and failure to ensure sufficient intake of certain vitamins and minerals can lead to a weakened immune system. Players can then be susceptible to illness and poor recovery. Supplementing with BodiArmor and Zinc and Magnesium complex can really help stave off illness and aids recovery and wellbeing
