Have you ever watched pro riders in the Tour de France screaming up the side of switchback mountain trails like they have motors in their bikes (ahem...🤨) or cruising through mile 18 of a marathon as if they’re simply Sunday strollin'… and wondered “how is it possible their faces aren’t absolutely cringing in pain?”
They either have one helluva poker face, or (a more likely scenario)...
They aren't hurting as much as you or I would at a fraction of the effort
First, Pros are better trained than most of us, and through those thousands of hours of dedication to their craft, they’ve been able to train their bodies to do two key things:
Impressive as their accomplishments are, they don't come without incredible sacrifice.
But if your an athlete with a regular job, a family and kids, a lawn to mow, maybe even a dog to walk, you don't have the time (let's face it or the will!) to train like the Pros.
Well, the combination of Sur Alt Red to deliver more oxygen to your working muscles and AMP Lotion to help buffer the increased acidity in your muscles will do exactly that.
In fact, to be able to ‘train harder and hurt less’ is basically the pinnacle of every athlete’s performance-enhancing dreams! And to achieve this using safe, natural ingredients is a whole other level of "yes please!"...
Two of my favorite new products for increasing your efforts while decreasing your pain
Here’s why I (and all the Pros) love this combination so much...
It's been known for some time that beets help boost endurance performance. What hasn’t been known is how to maximize their power through targeted extraction… until now.
That's because Sur AltRed developed a proprietary extraction method and is now the first beet supplement on the market that contains only pure betalains extract (the nutrient that produces the red pigment in beets) while leaving out all the ‘nasties’ (i.e. nitrates and sugars)
This innovative extraction technology creates a concentrated extract that boasts increased bioavailability and is considerably more effective than whole beets, beet juice, and beet powders. An added benefit to the extraction method is that it removes nitrates and sugars, leaving you with pure, performance-enhancing gold (or magenta, in this case)
The AltRed Betalains in these tiny capsules improve oxygen delivery to your muscles and allow you to go further, faster, and longer in training and competition.
AltRed's clinically proven athletic performance and recovery benefits are backed by science, 8+ years of field testing, and world champion endurance athletes. These studies have shown that Sur AltRed can help athletes:
AltRed is also safe for sport. It's tested by both NSF Certified for Sport® and Informed-Choice Trusted by Sport. (Can you say win-win?)
We've been testing this in-house for some time now and the results are A++. It's now a staple in our supplement closet and the consensus is... It works...and we ❤️❤️❤️ it!
Many of us equate "lactate acid" as to why our muscles hurt. Don't worry- this is a simple way to describe it and it’s the analogy I often use too. However, scientifically it isn’t exactly accurate.
What actually happens is that as you go harder, you’re not able to meet the oxygen requirements of your muscles, which results in your PH lowering (i.e. becoming more acidic) and this is what’s hurting. Lactate then swoops in to save the day, acting as a protective mechanism.
BUT what if you could neutralize the acid in your muscles, before your body signals for lactate, (i.e. less pain)?
Turns out you can or, you can at least "buffer" this acidity. Athletes have been doing it for years with none other than simple Sodium Bicarbonate aka Baking Soda.
Cool, I'll just down some baking soda and I'll be good to go, right?
Not exactly… If you haven’t already had the pleasure of gulping down a glass of baking soda water, let me save you the unique experience by warning you that… it’s beyond disgusting (I still get 🤢 just thinking about)
Aside from (or because of?) being super gross, orally ingesting sodium bicarbonate causes A LOT of athletes MAJOR GASTRIC DISTRESS.
And, of course, getting sick to your stomach will SAP your performance, to say the least.
This is why I was elated (yes, elated… I DO NOT like drinking baking soda!) when I discovered AMP Human lotion.
AMP Human lotion’s breakthrough technology makes it possible to absorb sodium bicarbonate transdermally (through your skin)... In other words- it’s a flippin’ miracle.
AMP uses a cutting edge technology originally developed for a biotech company to more effectively deliver drugs through the surface of your skin. AMP has repurposed the lotion and replaced the "drugs" with sodium bicarbonate.
Now you can deliver Sodium Bicarbonate to your muscles through your skin, not your stomach
(can I get a hallelujah?! 🙆♀️)
There are a number of studies looking into the effectiveness and performance gains of Amp.
What I can say from early data I've seen, is that you need to use a generous amount of AMP Lotion on both legs (quads, hamstrings, and calf) and timing is important (use it 30 minutes prior to starting your workout).
Anecdotally, athletes swear by AMP Lotion and continue to use it over and over again.
First, I saw most Pro cyclists use it just for Time Trial events. Then, about 2 years ago, I started seeing athletes lathering up on the team bus before each stage of the Tour de France. Now it’s part of most Pro Cyclists' regular pre-race routine.
If you’re like me, you’re not doing much racing these days. BUT that doesn’t mean I’m not always trying to push harder in my training and AMP human lotion is an essential component to my hard efforts.
Note that It isn't for long, slow workouts. But if you’re going to:
Then AMP Lotion will let you push your limits even further than you otherwise would be able too.
Combining Sur Alt Red to help you go faster and harder with AMP Human PR lotion to help you hurt less during training and after is a one-two punch to help you push harder, increase your current output, have less pain with your efforts and even recover easier so that you can do it all again tomorrow. For anyone who has reached a bit of a plateau in their training, this is a great combination to help you get over your slump and back to being a beast in your sport again.
So what are you waiting for? If you want to train harder and have less pain, you need to get your Train Harder, Hurt Less pack today!
