Glutamine + BCAAs
If you live your life in soreness from tough WODs. You aren’t alone! It’s just the nature of the crossfit! You most likely remember this feeling as you descend to the bottom of a plate loaded squat during our squat day warmup! We go hard 3-5 times a week in hopes of creating incremental changes over time. However, without the proper recovery post WOD or even during the workout we negate the gains we could be making. We all DESERVE those gains, right? Well, you can unlock the key to strength and recovery with one scoop of Transparent Labs BCAAs+ Glutamine. There are three branch-chain amino acids, and all of them are ONLY obtained through external sources! These amino acids include leucine, isoleucine, and valine. By supplementing with these critical aminos we allow the body to reduce muscle soreness, muscle fatigue, and build a body that can go beast mode! This trio of aminos blunt muscle breakdown which is common in our sport! Glutamine is also imperative for any type of fitness regimen. Glutamine is naturally found in the body, but is depleted during strenuous activities. When glutamine levels in our body plummet our ability to recover is sluggish! 5-10 grams of Transparent Labs Glutamine+BCAAs can be taken pre-workout, intra workout, or post-workout for optimal performance!
