Recovery

Your Recovery Blueprint

Monitor anabolic/catabolic balance

Anabolic responses occur when you are building muscle, while catabolic responses occur when your muscles are broken down. Since muscles power performance, understanding and monitoring muscle status is essential to creating a successful training program and competition strategy.

Identify amino acid deficiencies

Amino acids are the building blocks of your body. After intense training, your body needs to repair proteins like muscles, hormones, enzymes, and red blood cells. Identifying deficiencies can provide you with the knowledge to customize protein sources in your diet based on actual measured needs.

Recovery Science

  • Monitor capacity for training adaptations

    Hormones are the chemical messengers in the body that alert your body to respond to training.

  • Evaluate antioxidant status

    Antioxidants help your body recover from damage. Certain nutrients can act as antioxidants to help protect cells from damage.

  • Detect inflammation

    Inflammation results when your body is trying to repair itself from damage. Elevations in inflammatory markers may reveal an underlying state of inflammation.

  • Monitor anabolic/catabolic balance

    Certain hormones are associated with protein synthesis or protein breakdown in your body. Monitoring specific hormones helps to determine whether your body is favoring muscle building or muscle breakdown.

  • Evaluate protein building blocks

    Amino acids are your body’s building blocks and are essential to its growth and repair. They are also vital components of proteins such as hormones, neurotransmitters, and proteins in the body that carry oxygen.

Designed specifically for athletes training at high volumes, the recovery package monitors markers associated with recovery status and repair needs. 

Insights can provide for the early detection of susceptibility to over-training and sub-optimal training adaptations. This package also helps you to ascertain if the appropriate building blocks needed for recovery from training are present.
