First Impression: The Key & Delta Zone

When it comes to training two of the biggest necessities are sleep and recovery, I have just started trialling two products from @BPMlabs The Key & Delta Zone. These 2 products are relativity new to the supplement scene and are taking the market by storm. I'll introduce you to them both, and over the next few weeks I will be reporting back with my feedback about the products!

The Key 

The Key is a substitute, but by no means less superior than having your whey protein. For people who are lactose intolerant or have digestive issues The Key could be something to consider taking, as it is vegan friendly and is developed from plant based amino acids, so it’s a great choice for those practicing a healthier lifestyle.

In summary, The Key:

  • is able to be 100% absorbed and 99% utilised by the human body
  • has the optimal amino acid ratio for human absorption
  • helps to support healthy and stable blood glucose levels
  • outperforms whey protein lean mass gains by 521%
  • produces virtually zero waste
  • does not cause gastrointestinal discomfort or bloating
  • has shown 270% greater body fat loss than whey protein

And it also taste great, so replace your BCAA & your protein with “The Key”.

Delta Zone

Delta Zone is perfect for all you late night zombies, insomniacs and early morning risers. I took this for the first time two weeks ago. I got ready to go to bed at 10:30pm, shook it up, drank it and my sleep was.......... you'll have to wait until next week to find out how it went!

Update: Read The Delta Zone final review here.

No Pain No Gain

It's either your first session or you haven't exercised in a while and you're thinking, "Awesome! This is the start of my journey to a better body"...... Then the next day comes and you get out of bed feeling like you have been hit by a bus! Welcome to the world of Delayed Onset Muscle Sorness, or DOMS for short. I have seen so many people fail and stop a program because of the unfamiliar experience. Like they say NO PAIN NO GAIN...

Product Review: Green Machine

By Beau

Having Fibromyalgia stopped me from training and I put on 12kgs and looked my worst. I've been able to manage that since then and have been at my best and lost 15kgs! Where I'm heading with this is that one of the symptoms I had was that it was causing me to be sick in the stomach, like really bad. My belly was churning and hurting and........I farted a lot. Rachel hated it. Sorry! I then found out that I'm lactose intolerant - I love ice cream and thick shakes and they're now things I've had to cut out of my diet.

I've been looking into Supergreens to help control my digestive system and get me back on track and because I love going in to ASN Brisbane I was interested in a product called Green Machine that helps:
*lower cortisol levels
*balance PH levels
*iron levels
*vitamin A C and B12
*and it helps overall energy and fatigue.

Ask any of my clients, since I've been taking green machine I've been in the gym training people and twerking like Miley, my energy levels have been insane. On a serious note though, so many people have digestive problems and need to get the right greens in their bodies to help lower cortisol to reduce stress, excess fat storage and the loss of muscle mass. So many people don't even know about cortisol and it slows down the weight loss process dramatically.

The thing that got me with this product is that it actually taste great! Some super greens just taste like liquified rabbit food, which means no one wants to have it and it sits in the cupboard like millions of other fad diets and supplements that you don't need. The fruity taste makes you want to have it everyday, which it should be along side healthy eating, training and other supplements.

WhatSupp? [Part 2]

2649web

By Beau:

This is part two of my supplement post series. If you haven't read the first one yet you can find it here.

BCAA

  • Branch Chain Amino Acids are the support mechanisms for keeping hard lean muscle mass, with out BCAAs your body will start eating away at your hard work spent in the squat rack and leave you looking like a pregnant giraffe.
  • You spend hours and hours on the treadmill, or you have gone for that 10k run and think “EFF YEAH, GO ME! IM DOING SAAAAAA WELL!” Correct , you have burnt through so many calories burning all that fat and carbs that was sitting on your arse, but you don’t realize that now your energy source has turned to your protein, and protein is your muscle. This is where BCAAs play their part, they will help your body stop catabolising muscle in to glycogen as fuel.
  • As a general rule of thumb, I keep most work outs 45 mins or less to help the metabolic window use the right fuels at the right time, otherwise the food you eat depletes as an energy source, unless you are going to have a bite to eat mid session I would recommend having your BCAA as a intra-work out supplement to prevent your body producing cortisol and storing fat on your belly!
  • My two favorite BCAAs are: Scivation – Xtend, or Nubreed – Helix. Both come in a range of amazing flavours!

Creatine

  • Creatine is a natural occurring molecule found in the body which helps with the delivery of energy to the body and the brain. When broken down on a cellular level creatine can aid the production and delivery of energy (ATP) to the muscle to help fight off lactic acid and increase strength.
  • When preforming short bursts of energy such as lifting weights creatine is most effective, especially when you get in to the end of a set and pushing out the last rep!

L-Carnitine

  • This supplement is a natural existing amino acid that helps with the break down of food in to energy, this is great for a lot of people such as vegetarians and mothers breastfeeding who would most likely be deficient in L-Carnitine (mainly because its found in dairy, red meats and avocado).
  • The major benefits of L-Carnitine is the oxidation of food into energy to help stimulate muscle growth and endurance, which makes it the perfect supplement for endomorphs doing cardio and burning through the fat. It also helps with fat by heating up your core temperature.
  • Another great benefit of L-Carnitine is that it helps with so many little processes that help the body function normally. For instance, I have found that it is a great supplement to help manage my fibromyalgia. Other disease and disorders can also get beneficially supplementation from L-Carnitine aswell.
  • It can increase energy and and imrpove resistance to muscle fatigue. As a speculated fighter of muscle disease, liver disease, and kidney disease, L-Carnitine has also been shown to help build muscle and even treat some forms of cardiovascular disease. It is great in dieting, as it reduces feelings of hunger and weakness.

Other Supplements you should check out are: CLA, Test-Boosters, E-Blockers, L-Glutamine, Beta-Alanine, ZMA
