The athlete’s goal is to have their stomachs relatively empty while energy stores are full at the start of training or competition. Following a specific eating pattern can maximize the storage and production of energy. By properly loading your energy systems (phosphocreatine and glycogen) that are rapidly depleted during exercise, you can delay fatigue and optimize performance during activity. More...

Traditional whole foods are not ideal pre- and post-training snacks because of the time it takes to digest solid food including extraction then absorption of the needed nutrients (about 2-3 hours). Although nutrition bars with the proper carbohydrate, protein and fat ratios can be effectively used before and after exercise, liquid is generally better for the simple reason of speed to the muscles.

Do nitric oxide supplements enhance bodybuilding?

Answer: To date there is one published study related to the efficacy of NO (nitric oxide) boosters via oral ingestion. The major finding of this recent study was that the nitric oxide booster (arginine alpha-ketoglutarate, or AAKG) increased strength and power in resistance-trained men. With recent positive findings and many years of other related data, including relative safety, dotFIT has developed NO7Rage™, an unparalleled supplement that maximizes performance and strength gains for experienced, resistance-trained athletes. The proprietary blend contains, among other specialized ingredients, caffeine, creatine and glucuronolactone. Intravenous arginine supplementation has been shown to increase NO production. However, oral arginine supplementation leads to very little increase in systemic arginine. Interestingly, citrulline, when taken orally, is converted to arginine in the body which leads to significant increases in systemic arginine, enabling the increased production of NO. Increased NO has a vasodilation effect, allowing more nutrients, blood and oxygen to flow into working muscles and waste products and metabolites to be removed, enhancing work capacity, the “PUMP”, and reducing muscular fatigue.
