Progenex in stock again!
Progenex is finally back in stock and at the gym! Due to the CrossFit Games – they have been selling out quick, so grab a bag (or two) while it’s still here. OR if you can’t make it to the gym – order some online from www.progenexusa.com
and use the coupon code CFC13 for 10% off your order.
A lot of you have been asking why Progenex is better than other proteins out there…here’s some info from their site that helps…
How is PROGENEX Recovery different from any other whey protein isolate?
PROGENEX Recovery is not simply a WPI, or whey protein isolate. PROGENEX Recovery has been hydrolyzed, or cut, using a proprietary enzymatic process that cuts the protein into tiny peptide sequences that can be quickly absorbed into the bloodstream.
What makes PROGENEX More Muscle so special?
Similar to PROGENEX Recovery, PROGENEX More Muscle is specially formulated for fast absorption. PROGENEX More Muscle is powered by Promyosin,™ a whey protein that is significantly refined, or cut, so that it can enter your bloodstream fast. PROGENEX More Muscle is also very high in BCAAs and Glutamine to aid in muscle growth and recovery.
Why is speed of absorption so important?
The faster protein is in your bloodstream, the faster it gets to your muscles, helping to produce the gains you want. It takes up to five hours for whole proteins, such as beef, chicken, or fish, to get into your bloodstream. PROGENEX More Muscle is in your bloodstream in minutes.
I am interested in increasing my protein intake to 3.0 g/kg of desired LBM but I would need to use protein powder to get there. I am concerned with the insulin spikes that whey protein powders give off. I am also interested in losing body fat.
There is a significant additive advantage to consuming mixed carbohydrate and protein supplements immediately post-workout. Your post-workout target should be to both feed existing muscle fibers as well as stimulate satellite muscle cells. (which fuel the greater proportion of muscle growth from exercise). PROGENEX More Muscle does both. Here are a couple of studies that you may be interested in: Disassociation between the effects of amino acids and insulin on signaling, ubiquitin ligases, and protein turnover in human muscle.http://ajpendo.physiology.org/cgi/content/full/295/3/E595 Effect of premeal consumption of whey protein and its hydrolysate on food intake and postmeal glycemia and insulin responses in young adults. http://www.ajcn.org/cgi/content/abstract/ajcn.2009.28406v1
I’m on a fat-loss diet. Once I start taking the products, would I have to subtract 295 of my calories from food to make up for the added calories from More Muscle/Recovery in order to continue with my current rate of fat loss?
Adding resistance training and our post-workout supplements while reducing empty calories will do the trick.
