Want the Ultimate Pump, and Increase Strength in the same workout?

Anyone would answer this questions with an enthusiastic-Absolutely! I don’t blame anyone who wants this, but how do you accomplish this rare feat?

Here are two key ways to achieve the ultimate intra workout combination:

1.     Pre-Glow

We’ve all been looking for BioRhythm to come out with a Pre-Workout that matches our Post workout (AfterGlow). We’ve finally done it! If you haven’t tried it, your competition is gaining on you!

Most Pre-workouts contain the basic formula for energy (caffeine), but do they go the extra mile to make sure every workout has the opportunity to be your best? I don’t think so!

Pre-Glow’s formula is science based, meaning that each ingredient has a correlation with improving performance, energy, endurance, stamina, and focus. One of my personal favorite, researched, ingredients is Beta Alanine. Beta Alanine has been proven by several research studies to increase carnosine levels. What does this mean? Carnosine is a naturally occurring di-peptide that is found in both type 1 and type 2 muscle fibers. Type 2 muscle fibers are primarily used in high intensity types of strength training, and are highly responsive when it comes to muscular growth! The overall result is an increase in muscular growth and strength from just one ingredient!

2.     Eccentric Training

-How many times have you focused on the “negative” of a rep? For some it’s probably been a while. This might be a good wake up call to understand the impact of reversing the focus of your repetitions. The Journal of Strength and Conditioning research wanted to compare the concentric to the eccentric of a bench press to determine which yields the greatest

strength capabilities to increase strength. What they found was very insightful, and possibly eye opening to some.  “Paired t-tests showed that Eccentric 1RM (115.99 ± 31.08 kg) was significantly greater than Concentric 1RM (93.56 ± 26.56 kg), and the number of repetitions completed at 90% 1Rep Max was significantly (p ≤ 0.05) greater in Eccentric (7.67 ± 3.24) as compared with Concentric (4.57 ± 2.21).

So, overall there you have it. My picture was taken after 1 set of arms today using Pre-Glow, and the focusing on a 3 sec Eccentric with alternating bicep curls.

Knowing that your supplements work is one thing, but if your training is not set up to meet your goals then you’ll never full achieve ultimate workout success!
