Energy output is a complex matter. We all need a certain amountof carbohydrates to ensure that our glycogen stores are fully stocked to ensure we can perform to our optimum ability during exercise.
This is an accepted fact.
Slightly more complicated is the matter of pre-workout energy continuation and post workout glycogen replenishment.
Different carbohydrate sources with different Glycemic measurements are required to satisfy these varying requirements. It’s additionally important that along with the triple-charged carbohydrate content of Battery +/- 3, amino acids that are vital to the muscle preservation process are also included.
This is why PhD invented Battery +/-3.
Step 1- Long and mid-term energy- Battery+/-3 contains fructose and maltodextrin to ensure that when taken before and during exercise, the blood sugar spike will not be so great that it impairs long and mid-term performance.
Fructose has a low glycemic rating (GI 23) so it’s conversion to blood sugar is slow and steady.
Maltodextrin has been used throughout the years as a complex carbohydrate, though in reality, it is sufficient for mid-term energy storage and additionally effective when used post exercise to replenish glycogen stores and ensure complete and efficient recovery from training.
Step 2- Immediate glycogen replenishment- High Impact carbs!- Dextrose monohydrate has a high-glycemic rating ensuring immediate and effective glycogen replenishment and an instant elevation of blood sugar for complete recovery.
This particular process becomes vital upon the conclusion of a workout.
This is the period when glycogen reserves have been drained and need immediate replenishment.
Step 3- Added Branched Chain Amino Acids and L-Glutamine- BCAA’s are considered the critical cluster of amino acids, the most vital of all.ability to aid in the anti-catabolic process, L-Glutamine is a vital inclusion within Battery+/-3.
Pre-workout energy boost or carbohydrate load: Add 2 scoops of PhD Battery to 300-400ml ice cold water and shake vigorously for 5 seconds or more. During exercise: Add 2 scoops (40 grams)of PhD Nutrition’s Battery +/-3 to 300-400ml of ice cold water and shake vigorously for 5 seconds or more. Post workout: Add 3 scoops (60 grams) of PhD Nutrition’s Battery +/-3 to 500ml of ice-cold water and shake vigorously for 5 seconds or more. The post workout meal is a vital part of any athletic diet. Replenishing glycogen storage immediately after intense exercise such as weight-training may help facilitate recovery and progression.
