5 Cardio Supplement Secrets
5 Supplement SECRETS for getting GREATER results from HIIT!
Secret #1: Boost your “feel-good”
energy during HIIT with FAST-UP!
As the name suggests, HIIT is intense! For maximum results, you need to have plenty of energy and motivation. By taking Fast-Up before HIIT, you can clear away fatigue and “amp” yourself up with smooth, feel-good energy and focus, while boosting your cardiovascular and muscular work output.
Fast-Up contains carefully selected doses of citrulline malate, coenzyme Q10, NADH, Green tea leaf extract and caffeine, plus four B vitamins.
How to use:
Take 1 serving (3 capsules) with a glass of cold water 30 minutes before cardio.
For maximum results, you can stack Fast-Up with Up-Lift, Creatine Select, Energy Reserve and/or Quadracarn (discussed below).
1 serving (3 capsules) supplies 200 mg of caffeine, roughly equivalent to 2 cups of coffee.
If you want to consume less caffeine (e.g. before an evening HIIT workout), take 1-2 capsules of Fast-Up.
Secret #2: Use UP-LIFT to achieve more “feel-good” energy without caffeine!
There are times when you want to boost your energy and performance without taking caffeine or other stimulants. These are the perfect times for Up-Lift, a 100% stimulant-free pre-workout formula unlike any other.
Up-Lift contains a potent 1.5-gram dose of tyrosine. Tyrosine boosts your energy, mood and motivation, particularly during high-intensity exercise. Yet it doesn’t produce the jittery effect that sensitive individuals get from taking too much caffeine.
In addition, Up-Lift has over 4.5 g of arginine and citrulline, and 1 g of beta-alanine, plus histidine, carnosine and adaptogenic (“anti-stress”) botanicals. These other ingredients promote endurance, which in turn allows you to push yourself harder and burn fat faster. When Up-Lift is used on a regular basis, carnosine and the adaptogenic botanicals also provide anti-aging benefits.
How to use:
Mix 1 serving (2 full scoops) of Up-Lift with water and drink 30 minutes before HIIT.
Up-Lift can also be stacked with a caffeinated product like Fast-Up for additional support of cardiovascular and muscular work output.
Tyrosine is one of those nutritional ingredients that the body gets “used to” with repeated use. For this reason, consider alternating Up-Lift with Muscle Synergy or Fast-Up every 2-4 weeks. When you resume using Up-Lift, it will feel like the first time you took it!
Secret #3: Accelerate recovery and prevent muscle soreness with GLUTAMINE SELECT!
HIIT not only tires your muscles out; it can also make them sore. Glutamine Select contains clinically based doses of glutamine plus BCAAs. Use it to accelerate recovery and prevent muscle soreness caused by HIIT.
How to use:
Mix 2 scoops with 12-16 oz (1.5-2 cups) of cold water in a shaker cup or blender and drink before and after HIIT.
Glutamine Select can be sipped on between meals to support lean muscle (anti-catabolic effects) and help curb cravings. Now Available in 2 Great Flavors - Wild Berry and Black Cherry
Secret #4: Take your fat-burning metabolism to the next level with ENERGY RESERVE or QUADRACARN!
L-carnitine is a naturally occurring substance that is at the heart of fat burning. It helps carry fat into the mitochondria of your cells, where it can be burned to provide energy.
Each tablet of Energy Reserve is loaded with 600 mg of l-carnitine. Energy Reserve is quite popular with personal trainers and female clients who use it to amplify the fat-reducing effects of HIIT.
Quadracarn is a fantastic choice for men. It differs from Energy Reserve in that it contains 4 types of carnitine: l-carnitine, propionyl-l-carnitine, l-carnitine l-tartrate and n-acetyl-l-carnitine. This allows Quadracarn to provide benefits that go beyond fat-burning and include support of androgen (testosterone) receptor function (l-carnitine l-tartrate), cardiovascular health (e.g. circulation)(propionyl-l-carnitine), cognitive function (n-acetyl-l-carnitine), and anti-aging benefits (n-acetyl-l-carnitine, l-carnitine).
NOTE: Women should not worry that l-carnitine l-tartrate, by supporting androgen receptor function, will turn them into men! It most definitely will not. In fact, l-carnitine l-tartrate has been studied in healthy women and men. Among other benefits, it has been shown to support recovery from high-intensity exercise. In short, women should feel confident adding Quadracarn, Energy Reserve, or both, to their supplement regimen.
How to use:
Energy Reserve: Take1-2 tablets before HIIT (or other forms of cardio) and 1-2 tablets with each of 3 meals.
Quadracarn: Take 3 tablets, 3 times daily on training days. On non-training days take 3 tablets twice per day.
Some studies suggest that eating carbohydrate may enhance the effects of carnitine by allowing your body to retain more of it. Therefore, when taking Energy Reserve or Quadracarn with a meal, try to include a small amount of carbohydrate.
Carnitine accumulates slowly in the body. The secret to getting results with it is to be consistent and patient. Take it every day
Secret #5: Achieve a deeper, more restorative sleep with ZMA 2000!
Nighttime is a critical time for recovery. The better you sleep during the night, the faster you can recover from HIIT. Beverly clients use ZMA 2000 to improve sleep quality and support nighttime hormonal balance and repair and recovery of tired muscles.
ZMA 2000 contains a clinical dose of ZMA®, a patent-protected mixture of zinc monomethionine, zinc aspartate, magnesium aspartate and vitamin B6.
How to use:
Men take 3 capsules (women, 2 capsules) before bed on an empty stomach.
For maximum results, combine with Quadracarn.
Bonus Secret! #6: Support healthy red blood cell function and maximize your stamina with ULTRA 40!
By definition, HIIT involves performing repeated bouts of high-intensity cardio. That requires stamina. Ultra 40 helps you improve your stamina and overall energy by supporting healthy iron levels and red blood cells.
Ultra 40 is an ultra-premium liver tablet derived from grass-fed, pesticide- and hormone-free cattle raised in Argentina. The facilities that the cattle are raised in are inspected by SENASA, the Argentinean equivalent of the United States FDA.
Ultra 40 contains heme iron, which is considered the most bioavailable form of iron in the diet. Your red blood cells use it to synthesize hemoglobin. Your muscle cells use it to synthesize myoglobin.
Unlike other liver tablets, Ultra 40 is easy to digest and does not cause gas or stomach upset.
How to use:
Take 1 tablet per 10 lbs of bodyweight per day.
Divide your daily allotment of tablets into smaller doses.
Take each dose with meals.
Example: A 180-lb athlete would take 18 tablets per day. This allotment might be divided into 6 tablets with each of 3 meals.
