Our team of experts wants to help you push your limits with all-in-one programs specially adapted for each goal. When you first start exercising, progress is fast. But when you have been practicing for a long time, it sometimes slows down or stagnates... Training is then important, but not only... Diet and the quality of recovery are also important! It is important to ensure that the body receives the nutrients it needs to fill up on energy and to ensure that the muscles function optimally. In addition to an adapted diet, it may be necessary to use supplements to meet the needs increased by the practice of sports and thus increase your performance.
How to improve your sports performance?
Gain in explosiveness
Explosive strength is defined as the restitution of a maximum of power in a minimum of time. It allows athletes to strengthen their muscles. It generates a multitude of micro-lesions in the muscle fibers that force the body to react by repairing and making new fibers. The most effective method for gaining explosiveness is plyometrics, which is the compression of the muscle in eccentric contraction to restore the stored strength, with squats for example.
Gaining in strength
The lactic anaerobic pathway is the main pathway during intense efforts. It is used during split or interval training, but also during intensive bodybuilding. It allows the conversion of fatty acids to replenish glycogen stocks. To gain in strength, it is necessary to work on short series with heavy loads.
Gained in endurance
The aerobic pathway is based on glucose and fatty acid molecules and allows for moderate intensity efforts for several hours. It is the main pathway used for endurance sports. To improve his endurance, the athlete must practice a lot of training at low and moderate intensity over increasingly long distances, on a regular basis. Split training sessions help to develop power and push the limits of endurance.
To grow, the muscle needs rest. It is necessary to privilege a quality recovery and reasonable times of rest between the sessions to progress more quickly. It is during the rest days that the hormonal activity and the production of testosterone are boosted allowing to fix proteins and to increase muscle gain.
Perform with supplements
Nootropics are substances that have a significant effect on the improvement, modification and optimization of cognitive abilities. Developed for brain performance, they dramatically improve physical performance by stimulating the production of certain neurotransmitters and psychoactive hormones. Cholinergics are found, they stimulate the production of acetylcholine, which allows neurons to communicate with each other. These substances allow athletes to optimize explosiveness, speed, agility and dexterity. Among them, we find choline, phosphatidylcholine, DMAE ..
Adrenergics act by stimulating the production of hormones and neurotransmitters involved in the excitation of the nervous system. Extreme sports with high adrenaline discharge, combat sports or strength can benefit from these substances. The best known are caffeine, tyrosine, neuro-choline, etc..
GABA is a neurotransmitter synthesized by the brain, involved in the inhibition of nervous stress. It slows down neuronal activity, thus allowing recovery. By increasing the duration of deep sleep, the athlete increases the secretion of growth hormone. Thus, recovery and physical performance will be improved!
Serotoninergics boost the production of serotonin, the neurotransmitter of well-being, balance and stress management. In addition, these supplements can significantly lower cortisol levels, which has a positive effect on lean muscle mass gain. The most effective are tryptophan and rhodiola rosea, found in several formulas including that of BCAA Xtrême.
The dopaminergics stimulate the production of dopamine and potentiate its action. The sportsmen of extreme sports have a higher level of dopamine. Dopamine has a positive action on the synthesis of growth hormone and testosterone. The main substances acting on it are tyrosine, rhodiola rosea, phenylalanine.
Proteins allow to gain muscle, to lose fat but also to improve performance. With sufficient training and a well-defined dietary intake, proteins can, in the most trained athletes, trigger hypertrophy and performance gains.
