​Are You Underperforming?

06/01/2017

How do you know if you’re actually performing at your full potential in the gym, you probably don’t is the answer. To truly perform to the heights your body is capable of there are so many external influences you need to bear in mind. I’ve collated together a “hit list” of things you need to revisit to guarantee you’re able to perform at your peak.

There’s 3 stages to this …

1 Recovery

2 Hydration

3 Suppleness

Recovery…

You can’t expect to perform correctly if you haven’t enabled your body to recover sufficiently from your previous jousting match with the iron. Under recovery is always a very much over looked issue in the training world because people become so fixated with other s*** like over dosing on inferior stimulants.

Start making recovery a priority in your life and you will immediately reap the rewards, it’s that simple. If you nourish your body back to a state of full recovery each day you will not only perform better, you will be able to harvest muscle gains much quicker.

Recovery starts with your diet, ensuring you’re getting your protein rich meals in every 3 hours along with sufficient calories from natural ingredients. You will also need to use a post-workout protein shake, and the only choice is RE-KAGED given that it’s the fastest most easily absorbing protein powder on the planet.

Hydration…

Failing to sustain a state of hydration permanently will ambush your chances of performing at the highest levels, without question. When dehydration sets in you instantly become lethargic, your energy systems lose capacity, your muscle fibres are more vulnerable to cramping and your mental tenacity wilts.

Carry a water jug with you on your person each day, get a minimum of 1 gallon down the hatch. To help reaching a state of total hydration and sustaining it spike your water with HYDRA-CHARGE. There’s no better way of saturating your muscle cells with fluid so you perform at a higher level and appear bigger because your muscles are retaining more intra-muscular water. (Muscle mass is 80% water remember…)

Suppleness…

If you’re a follower of mine on Instagram or Facebook you will see that I religiously get different variations of yoga into my hectic schedule. Being big and clumsy isn’t a good look nor is it supportive of fast recovery. As you grow it’s essential you work on getting very supple and staying there because this will reduce the risk of injury and allow your muscles to recover much faster.

When your muscles are more supple there’s less scarring within the tissue which means blood can transcend through the layers of muscle quicker. Blood is the transportation system for nutrients, so the more flexible you become the easier you’ll find it is to recover.

This 3 step plan I’ve paved for you will make performing at your absolute peak infinitely easier, don’t take my word for it instead give it a go .

Just don’t forget to “bring it” to the gym and turn up the intensity because your workouts don’t mean s*** without enough intensity plugged in!
