High School Athlete's Nutrition

Here we are 2015.  High School athlete are training more and more and pushing harder and harder.  That's the good(great) part.  Lifting weights to become strong(er) to jump higher, throw harder, run faster, hit harder, hit further... and doing smart strength based conditioning ie:sprints, ropes, kb swings, etc.  Awesomeness! 

The "other" part of the equation is the recovery and nutritional component.  I have seen and chatted with many young athletes and their parents to really see enough of the picture(think a very sad looking puppy face). 


Some of my young athletes do not know what a veggie or fruit(who doesn't like fruit??!?!!) are.  Enough is enough.  This is the harder part for sure.  Until now.  Jtab Training has partnered with Purium to bring only the best organic nutrition to help fuel recovery and have more "Awesomeness" on the court or in the field.  Jtab Training has put together monthly packages that when used as directed will help young athletes achieve more with less soreness, recovery time and potential for injury.  Note: although these products are all whole food and organic based, we still need allergy info for athletes beforehand.

Things I've Been Digging Series, Part 1 Anti-Soreness Nutritional Support

Here is the first installment of things I've been "digging" (Yes, I was a H.S. and college volleyball player and H.S. coach back in the day, so theres a little volleyball humor for you).  These days my cousin and I have been crushing an intense bodybuilding program called Super Hero Muscle.  I would usually be sore each week (lifting 4 times a week can do that to you).  About a year ago I was introduced to a great line of organic nutritional components called Purium (PURe and PremIUM).  Recently I tweaked my peri (pre and post) workout nutrition to match my recovery needs and have been seeing great results.  Here is my exact routine: 

Preworkout: 2 scoops Power Shake (organic greens and slow release carbs), 2 Super Xanthin (see below info on Astaxanthin), 4 Super23 Aminos (organic vegan protein amino pills).

Postworkout: 2 Super Xanthins (see below), 4-5 Super23 Aminos and a serving of LOVE Supermeal Protein Meal Replacement Shake.

Ever since, I've been doing this almost to a T every lifting day and have had no muscle soreness and can actually function the next day.  Years before finding this organic nutritional support there were days after lifting I wouldn't be able to move well and this does not bode well when trying to show exercises to clients.

Sound like a lot?  You could say so.  Important to note A) I live for intense lifting (stress relief for me) and setting personal records, and B) My body is a walking billboard of my business. While you may not have the same lifting goals (or needs) that I do, we could all benefit from a little more nutrition and a little less soreness in our lives, can't we?

Bye-bye, lactic acid. Hello, better body!

Purium`s Super XanthinTM is made from nature`s most powerful antioxidant, which studies show is 550 times stronger than vitamin E. It helps combat free radical damage to muscles and helps reduce the buildup of lactic acid that causes post-workout soreness. We recommend combining this product with our Super Amino 23 so you can get the most out of your workouts.
