"Focus Food is just... wow. I can't explain how overwhelming they are and the energy and feeling I get is beastly. Can't believe it's 100% natural ingredients that make this up. Should've ordered six boxes in the first place. GREAT JOB!" (Chris T. - Scotland)
"Ideal Pump + Blue Gatorade = Glory. It tastes like a fruit roll-up that gets you jacked." (Evan D. - Virginia)
"Whats going on guys, just ordered some focus food and whey protein for PrimeTime World Headquarters. We are waiting on about 7 other packages from other people so I was a little surprised today when the GI Nutrition box was the first to arrive about 20 hours after we placed the order. Keep up the good work!" (Tyler L. - Massachusetts)
Nutrient Timing - "It's simply Irresponsible if you are training without it"
One of the most overlooked aspects of training is correctly utilizing nutrient timing in order to provide your body with the proper nutrients before, during, and after a workout. I have put together four short videos that breakdown the importance of nutrient timing and how it will make you a better athlete. During these videos, I will be referencing one of my favorite books, Nutrient Timing, by Dr. John Ivy and Dr. Robert Portman. I highly recommend it to all athlete, strength coach, or nutritionist.
Nutrient Timing: Overview
My first video is the Basic Theory of Nutrient Timing. Here I explain what the basic principles of nutrient timing are and their importance to you.
Nutrient Timing: Pre-Workout
The first step of nutrient timing is preparing your body with the proper amount of fuel before a workout. In this video I breakdown the key components of the pre-workout stage of nutrient timing and how GI Nutrition’s Focus Food and Ideal Pump can fit into your training program.
Nutrient Timing: During Workout – Energy Phase
This next video breaks down my trick to a faster recovery and how to spare muscle glycogen during your workout. GI Nutrition’s Ideal Whey, as well as dextrose, can be utilized during this phase.
Nutrient Timing: Post Workout – Anabolic Phase
Finally, your workout is over…now what? This is a critical time to provide your muscle with quality amino acids and carbohydrates. To continue this anabolic process, you want to feed your muscles with whey protein and some quality carbohydrates, such as dextrose.
How to use GI Nutrition Products for Proper Nutrient Timing:
75-90 minutes before workout: Focus Food
15-30 minutes before workout: Ideal Pump
During Workout: Ideal Whey & Dextrose
Immediately After Workout: Ideal Recovery
15-40 minutes after workout: Ideal Whey & Dextrose
Implementing the proper timing of nutrients will undoubtedly provide you with immediate results in performing at a higher level with faster recovery and building muscle faster.
Do no overlook the importance of keeping your body fueled with proper nutrients. An easy way to understand the importance of proper nutrient timing is to compare your body to a sports car. To ensure that your car runs smoothly and for a long period of time, you provide regular maintenance, oil changes, gas fill-ups, and new tires on a continued basis to minimize the chances of it ever breaking down or performing below its ability. The same goes with your body. Providing your muscles with the proper nutrients on a continued and regular basis will minimize the chances of breaking down and performing less than your potential. Implementing these simple steps to proper timing of nutrients will undoubtedly provide you with immediate results in performing at a higher level with faster recovery and better results.
