Recovery with Supplementation

Recovery with Supplementation


– Bit of movie magic please. (snapping) You ready? (laughing softly)
– [Woman] Yeah. – Okay, ready to go? – [Woman] Yeah. – Nice. Bit of move magic right there, so. (upbeat guitar music) Hi burners, I’m Paul,
from Fat Burners Only, here today to go through
a recovery 101 session on supplementation, so whether or not you’re
training at the gym, heavy weights for muscle
gain or muscle tone, you’re hitting the cardio
equipment for fitness, you’re hitting the road for running, or you’re cycling, or playing sport, we all need to know the
best way to recover. Now, were not pushing
anyone to take supplements, but if you know what this
can do for your recovery, you then have the power to use it to help with your recovery. So we start with protein. We have here, Isopept. This one is a high protein,
zero carb, zero fat product. The reason we put protein
in a recovery 101 session is because protein are the building blocks of your muscle tissue, and if you’re training, you’re
causing little micro-tears, we need the bricks to build the house, and that’s where protein comes in, and can help to recover those little tears and help with your recovery,
and with your muscle pain. Next, we have glutamine, and if we picture the body like a house, like I said, the protein
are the bricks of the house, the protein becomes your muscle tissue, the man that builds a house is glutamine. So glutamine will take protein and actually layer it
over the top of each other and help your muscle recover from those session of exercise
that you did previously, so glutamine and protein
will get rid of pain, help with recovery, and if
it’s a heavy weight session, it will help you to grow, or if it’s a cardio
session or a sport session, will get rid of that pain and reduce your chance of injury. Next, we have BCAA’s. Now, BCAA’s are typically
the colored drink that you’ll see people drinking during their training sessions at the gym or while they’re cycling, et cetera. BCAA’s stands for branch
chain amino acids, and they’re the three amino acids that form the bulk of your muscle tissue. They do not require blood for digestion, and therefore are perfect to
drink during your session. If you drank a protein
during your session, it does take blood to digest that protein, and if you’re drawing more blood to the stomach for digestion, you have less blood
floating around your body providing glucose and
oxygen to your muscles, where you need it while you’re training. This will not cause that blood conflict, and that’s why we drink
BCAA’s during training. They hit the muscle directly, they’ll give you energy to train harder, and provide the bricks to
build more of the house, so this guy here, perfect to drink during
your training session. Now, typically contain electrolytes to hydrate you as well. So we’ve got the bricks,
we’ve got the man to build it, and we have your recovery
during your session with electrolytes as well. Finally, we have magnesium here. Now we have the powdered
version and the tablet version, the reason we’ve got both
here is just so you know there’s both available to
whatever is your preference, and magnesium is very
important in recovery, because it’s the mineral responsible for causing relaxation in muscle tissue, so just a basic biology
lesson to do with magnesium. I’m actually gonna need a
whiteboard to explain to you why magnesium is so important in recovery. A bit of movie magic please. (snapping)
There we go. Okay, so the way that magnesium works is, let’s pretend we have a
calf muscle right here, calcium ions which we
typically have enough of, will flood in the tendons, and cause that calf muscle to contract. Now like I said, we usually have enough calcium for this. It’s magnesium’s responsibility then, to flood in to the fat
tendons in that calf, and then cause it to go
back to that relaxed state. We typically have enough calcium, but we don’t have enough magnesium for this process typically,
and what it will do, it will cause our muscles to get tight, throw off our balances,
and also if you cramp, it’s a surefire sign that
you are magnesium deficient. Calcium keeps flooding,
flooding, flooding, and causes the muscle to cramp. So, magnesium will help relax the muscle, help us correct any imbalances, elongate it again so we’re not tight, and on top of that, by enabling that relaxation
of the muscle tissue, will help us sleep better, when you get a better sleep, it improves our recovery as well. So, just to recap, this is
why these four supplements are so important to
help with your recovery. The protein, the building
blocks of your muscle tissue, you need protein to
turn into muscle tissue. We need glutamine as the man that grabs that protein
and lays it over the top of the little micro-tears in the muscle to get rid of pain, and help with recovery and growth. We need BCAA’s with
electrolytes to hydrate us, as well as give our body
the actual ingredients again to recover and give our muscles energy, without causing a blood conflict and starving the body of blood when it needs it for training, that’s why we drink that during. And magnesium to help
relax tight muscle tissues, correct any imbalances, and help us sleep. Just a little side note to magnesium, it’s best to take it before bed. So that’s a quick recap on recovery 101, I hope you got something
out of that burners. If you do have any questions, just whack a comment in the
