Day 62:Active Rest & Recovery

Congratulations, you’ve finished week 9 of this trainer and you’ve earned your active recovery days. An important tip I want to stress to you today is the importance of protein before your workout. As your calorie intake drops it’s important to consume enough protein. The amino acids can help fuel your training and prevent the breakdown of your muscle tissue. During a transformation trainer because of the reduced caloric intake, your body might catabolize muscle. So, it’s important to consume enough protein from your diet and supplements. By consuming sufficient protein, you better equip your body to preserve your lean muscle tissue.

Remember that even though today is a recovery day, you’ll still be performing 2 cardio sessions as active recovery to get blood flowing to your muscles and keep your metabolic furnace burning high. You’ll also start a 16 hour fast after you last meal of the day today.

If the weather permits, do some of your cardio outside to break up the monotony.

Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) include leucine, isoleucine and valine. Because your body cannot make BCAAs, you need to get them from your food and supplements, and you have a much greater demand for them when you’re training with intensity. Kaged Muscle’s fermented BCAAS are delivered in the sought after 2:1:1 ratio.

DOSE AND TIMING: For best results, take in fermented BCAAS 3 times a day, emphasizing first thing upon rising, before workouts, and during workouts. I also like to mix this in my gallon jug with other amino acids such as glutamine, citrulline (on non-training days) and HYDRA-CHARGE. Choose the option that works best for you.
