Have you ever gotten into one of those workout slumps? Not the kind where you aren’t working out at all… we’re talking about the kind where you feel like you’re doing all of the right things... but you just aren’t really seeing the results and changes you want.
If you can relate to this experience, it's time for you to take a leaf out of the book of the professionals. Olympic athletes (and other pro athletes) are not only highly skilled in their sport -- they are highly educated in caring for and supporting their bodies to get the best results possible.
In order to train at a pro level, you have to give your body the best nutritional support in the form of the right supplements (every Olympic athlete does it). A few of our favorites here at Parker Naturals are the Pre-Workout Nitric Oxide Booster Recovery Supplement and the Post-Workout BCAA Amino Acid.
So let’s talk about why these supplements are going to make all of the difference in your training results and what else you can do to care for your body before, during, and after training.
1.) Take Nitric Oxide
Nitric Oxide is produced naturally by the body and helps control blood circulation. Although our bodies produce it, some studies have shown that raising levels of nitric oxide can help improve blood flow -- giving your muscles more oxygen and more direct access to nutrients during a workout. These benefits have shown the potential to improve exercise performance. Try taking a supplement like Pre-Workout Nitric Oxide Booster Recovery Supplement before workouts to see greater results and better performance!
2.) Fight Inflammation
Protecting joints is something every single Olympic athlete knows is of great importance. Our joints are incredibly sensitive and if they aren’t cared for properly, an injury to a knee or hip could put you off your workout routine for months (or in some cases even longer).
Like all parts of our bodies, joints need both nutritional support and physical care. For a go-to joint support supplement, we recommend Parker Naturals Premium Turmeric Curcumin For Joint Health & Better Movement. Tumeric has been shown to help Control knee pain from osteoarthritis with as much success ad ibuprofen and helps fight general pain and inflammation in the joints.
3.) Foam Roll
Another wonderful way to support your joints from exercise is to take on the habit of foam rolling tight muscles. Foam rolling pre or post workout might help increase joint range of motion and even improve muscle recovery.
4.) Support Your Muscles With Protein
BCAAs (branched chain amino acids) are a specific group of amino acids that make up a large portion of the muscle. Studies have shown that taking BCAAs can help increase endurance and reduce muscle fatigue. These amino acids can be naturally obtained through a rich, high protein diet. But to make sure you are giving your body enough of these proteins to repair muscles in between workouts, use a supplement like Post-Workout BCAA Amino Acid.
5.) Hire A Coach Or Trainer!
It may seem obvious but every Olympic athlete has an incredible coach on their side (if not multiple!) to help them take the best possible care of their bodies. There is a lot we can do for ourselves and our own health and training but if you’ve hit a plateau and you’re really looking to step it up in the health department, consider working with a coach or even a nutritionist to give your body all of the support it needs to make the shifts you desire!
Training and exercise are a lifelong journey so remember to keep that balance between being kind and gentle with your body and pushing the limits when you are ready. And along the way, make sure you’re giving your body the support it needs to change and improve. And for the best results, be sure to try Parker Naturals Pre-Workout Nitric Oxide Booster Recovery Supplement and the Post-Workout BCAA Amino Acid. You’ll be amazed what you can achieve when you support your body with the right nutrition and smart physical habits.
