To keep you in good shape as you age you need:
Protection from muscle damage and soreness
Increased protein intake
Increased muscular endurance
Here are our product suggestions to help you get the most out of your training:
Both HMB and creatine have been shown to increase strength and power when training involves squats, deadlifts and pressing. This is especially relevant to masters athletes where strength training becomes more important in maintaining physical ability.
HMB reduces muscle damage from training so you’ll feel less sore and will recover quicker. It also slows muscle protein breakdown so you’ll keep the muscle and strength you have.
HMB also slows muscle loss through the natural aging process - even without training
Beta alanine increases muscle endurance by buffering the buildup of lactic acid in the muscle during high intensity training.
This enables you to go that extra few reps, meters or seconds more before fatiguing
It also enables you to work at a higher intensity (increases your lactate threshold)- so a little faster on the assault bike for example.
Beta alanine has also been shown to enhance running (10K time)
EGG WHITE PROTEIN ISOLATE:
Adequate protein intake is important to support your training. It’s also important that this protein comes from a high quality real food source if possible.
Where protein powders are great for convenience, they are often very highly processed.
We don’t think you should have to compromise on your nutrition practices which is why we developed our egg white protein isolate
It’s simply filtered egg whites with 6 ingredients added that you’ll recognise.
As it’s real food it also tastes a lot more natural than your usual protein shake. Just add water for a real chocolate milk taste and consistency. It’s also gluten, lactose and dairy free.
"I compete in CrossFit and also Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu against guys half my age. Blonyx Beta Alanine and Creatine +HMB are game changers for me, allowing me to train harder, get better results and maximize my recovery. Blonyx is the only supplements I take because quality matters."
