Blonyx HMB Sport®
What is Blonyx HMB Sport®?
HMB Sport® is a supplement that supports muscle health after strenuous exercise training. Using it results in less muscle power loss and quicker recovery after high intensity training. This means athletes can train harder and will improve quicker.
HMB Sport is in capsule form and contains nothing but powdered calcium HMB (calcium for absorporption purposes). Competitive athletes should take it two to three times a day with food or drink.
Our bodies naturally use about 1/2 a teaspoon of HMB a day to help protect and repair muscle cells. We normally get this
HMB from eating paleo based foods like alfalfa, grapefruit and catfish. We can also make it in limited amounts from the amino acid Leucine found in dietary protein.
Competitive CrossFit athlete muscle cells are subjected to more frequent stress through constantly varied training. Research has show that supplementing the diet with HMB reduces muscle cell damage after such stress. It also slows muscle protein breakdown and speeds production during recovery and adaptation. This leads to better subsequent training sessions and quicker performance improvements.
HMB is one of the most well researched supplements available and has been shown to be both safe and to work.
Who should take HMB Sport?
Because HMB simply improves recovery and adaptation to whatever training you do, HMB Sport is an ideal supplement for just about all competitive athletes. It will improve metcon and/or general strength depending on what you work on in the gym.
As HMB Sport does not contain Creatine Monohydrate, it is also a Blonyx product more suited to athletes wanting to retain rather than gain body weight. This may be for competition requirement or to avoid possible loss in agility. The reason for this is that Creatine can increase body weight through muscle water retention.
