Gone are the days of only training a muscle once every 7 days and expecting maximum results. Modern high-frequency training programs deliver faster results than their once-per-week counterparts of yesterday, but at the end of the day, it’s not a question of how often you can train. The limiting factor on how fast you can build more muscle and strength is how much training you can recover from.
There are two key components to growing bigger and stronger: stimulating your body through training to elicit an adaptation which can be fat loss, muscle gain, or strength gain depending on your goals, and then being able to recover from that stress. The less amount of time between training sessions (stimulus), the more often you can go through this training/recovery cycle, and the faster you’ll see results!
This makes recovery extremely important. But it’s not as easy as you think, and there’s more to recovery than simply re-building your muscles from the breakdown that occurs during your workout. You need to manage protein synthesis levels, and cortisol/stress levels. True Grit Post is a comprehensive formula that will help you boost recovery by cranking up protein synthesis while lowering cortisol and helping you recover as quickly as possible so you can get back in the gym and back in the game.
While it’s normal to have muscle soreness after training as part of the recovery process, muscle soreness can often interfere with your training both by reducing strength and range of motion, and by possibly hindering workouts for other body parts. True Grit Post can help combat training-induced muscle soreness, so you can get back into the gym fast.
True Grit Post also helps support post-workout levels of IGF-1 with a powerful, clinically studied dose of Betaine Anhydrous. In fact, in a study on healthy trained men, 2.5g of betaine taken daily for two weeks before a training session resulted in a significantly higher average post-workout blood concentration of IGF-1, all while significantly attenuating the training-induced cortisol response.
True Grit Post contains a leucine-enhanced 4:1:1 ratio of BCAAs (L-leucine, L-isoleucine and L-valine) for a heightened anabolic effect. Each serving contains 6g of this leucine-powered blend of BCAAs. Leucine is an essential amino acid that plays a crucial role in protein synthesis. This branched-chain amino acid works to stimulate protein synthesis via the mTOR pathway, thereby improving recovery time as well as stimulating gains in strength and size.
Training hard and breaking down muscle releases large amounts of cortisol. Among other things, cortisol inhibits the uptake of amino acids into the muscle cells, and also inhibits insulin from shuttling glucose into cells by decreasing the translocation of glucose transporters to the cell surface. This is not good news when you’re in a post-workout state where you need to drive nutrients into thirsty muscle cells. True Grit handles this issue with a researched dose of Sensoril® Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), a potent compound that has been shown to significantly lower serum cortisol levels.
Tart Cherry contains phytonutrients that are shown in an emerging body of research to help improve muscle recovery after training through the reduction of post-workout pain. In one study researchers found that tart cherry reduces pain perception and catabolic stress in the post-exercise period. Tart Cherry has the fantastic potential to improve recovery from training-induced muscle damage, so you can get back in the gym faster.
Creatine has been extensively studied, and is well documented for its ability to increase lean muscle and improve strength and endurance, and creatine monohydrate is the most studied form of creatine. Each serving of True Grit Post features a clinically studied dose of 3g of creatine monohydrate that hs been shown in research to deliver an increase in muscle total creatine concentration. Sports nutrition researchers agree that 3000mg of creatine is the minimum amount a supplement needs to deliver daily to enhance muscle growth.
True Grit Post contains a massive 6g dose of BCAAs (L-leucine, L-isoleucine and L-valine) in a leucine-enhanced 4:1:1 ratio for a heightened anabolic and strength effect. During times of metabolic stress (such as weight training or other intense exercise), BCAAs may aid in protein synthesis, become fuel for your muscles and prevent catabolism (muscle breakdown). Leucine is one of the three branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), however it is unique in its ability to stimulate skeletal muscle protein synthesis which can result in faster muscle growth and strength gains. True Grit™ Post contains a clinical dose of Leucine that has been shown in a gold-standard study to help subjects increase their 5-rep max strength by over 40% in just 12 weeks.
Avena sativa contains remarkable, naturally occurring phenolic alkaloids (polyphenols) that are called avenanthramides.
Betaine is a powerful recovery agent that is quickly becoming a must-have supplement for any athlete looking to boost recovery and manage key anabolic and catabolic hormones after a workout. In a study on healthy trained men, 2.5g of betaine taken daily for two weeks before a training session resulted in a significantly higher average post-workout blood concentration of IGF-1, all while significantly attenuating the training-induced cortisol response.
Studies have shown that L-carnitine is a powerful ingredient that can help aid the post-workout recovery process. It acts as an antioxidant that can reduce free-radical formation, minimize muscle tissue disruption and promote recovery. L-carnitine has even been shown to reduce muscle soreness after a workout. In one study subjects showed significantly less accumulation of markers of post-exercise stress, and less muscle soreness after moderate-intensity squat exercises.
Sensoril® Ashwagandha (Withania Somnifera) is a potent adaptogen that has been scientifically shown to significantly lower serum cortisol levels. High levels of cortisol can hinder muscle development and decrease muscle tissue. In just one 60-day double-blind placebo controlled study involving 98 subjects using the same amount of Withania Somnifera found in True Grit Post, researchers discovered that subjects experienced a significant reduction in serum cortisol.
