Do not let anyone make you feel inferior

Rant and Tip for July 10, 2012

Quote: “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”  Eleanor Roosevelt

A few days ago I blogged about how some of us allow ourselves to get beaten down by our surroundings. It happens all the time. Even to people who appear strong willed and self confident on the outside. Many times this makes us turn to food as a comfort. We eat to forget the hurt and pain we feel from allowing someone to take away our pride and confidence. This cycle needs to be broken and if once you recognize this is happening you can regain the strong willed person inside. For me getting to the gym gave me the strength and power inside to be the confident person inside and out. I no longer live to eat, I eat to live and more importantly do not allow anyone to make me feel inferior. I will not give them my consent to do so and neither should you!

I thought I would talk a bit about Supplementation. I have recently started a consistent program with the product SSP Nutrition. I am feeling stronger than ever and I am hitting Personal Records in the gym in just 2 short weeks. Of course this is not due entirely to the supplements but the supplements do allow me to push harder and see the gains I am striving for. As we work-out our bodies are put under a lot of stress and we need to replenish the nutrients that are lost in the process and provide the body with the fuel needed to repair as well.

I have used many protein supplements in the past, as well as a pre workout supplement. I cannot say I have used a post work out supplement other than a protein Isolate. These supplements can get costly so you want to make sure you are getting exactly what you need from them.
To show a comparison I thought I would share what I have taken in the past and their cost.
Pre workout; SuperPump                                    Cost. 40.00
Post;  BCAA Powder                                         Cost 30.00
Maintain; Isopure Protein                                    Cost  52.99
Rest Day; Creatine Monohydrate                        Cost  25.00

For a total cost of  $157.99 a month. I chose these products because I have seen some success with them.

The difference with SSP is all of these come as a complete system designed to work together. The total cost of the System is $129.99 if you purchase them by the canister. As you can see while on the surface this looks expensive as a product it is actually cheaper than buying the supplements you need as an athlete separately. You can also purchase the convenience of the packets which comes in a box to help keep them organized.

Now I have tried the SSP product before, sometime last year at one of the National events that I went to. Like most people I looked at the cost and thought holy cow that is expensive. Now that I break down the cost and take in consideration what had taken in the past I realize it is very affordable.

A little about the products individually

The Pre formula addresses critical needs for the performance athlete. Before and during the first half of the workout it’s crucial to ingest strategic amounts of proper nutrients. The Pre provides safe and natural supplementation to hydrate, enhance energy levels and prevent burning coveted muscle during the workout and performance competition. It’s what the body needs. The Pre keeps the athlete focused and hydrated while maintaining lower body temperatures for maximum workout periods with greater intensity. The latest research shows that taking essential amino acids before a workout increases muscle protein synthesis and anabolism. This, along with the hyper-hydration technology of our creatine and glycerol combination, supercharges the anabolic environment. Containing fat burning properties, The Pre enhances net gain of lean muscle and net loss of unwanted fat.

♦ Protect ♦ Replenish ♦ Repair
Provides athletes with the strategic blend of nutrients the body needs immediately after intense exertion. Post scavenges free radicals, repair's damaged muscle cells and enhancer’s lean muscle growth potential.
THE SYSTEM Packets are great for on the go athletes, or to keep organized at home in your custom SSP Nutrition box. The workout shouldn’t stop when the training ends.

♦ Lean Mass Stimulator ♦ Continue ♦ Repeat
SSP Nutrition recognizes that athletes need optimal nutrition at all stages of performance: Energetic workout, Muscle repair, and continued growth. The muscles contain remarkable growth potential long after the workout – if fed properly. The Maintain formula provides exactly what the body needs. Taken 2 hours after the Post formula, Maintain is a low calorie, lean mass stimulator. This allows muscles to continue on the anabolic path, receptive to vital time-released nutrients.

Rest Day

The rest day product allows athletes and weekend warriors the ability to maintain the proper levels of both Creatine Monohydrate and Citrulline Malate during non-workout days.

Tip:  Don’t look at dieting as a temporary thing. Many people can lose weight on a diet; the trick is keeping the weight off. Having a maintenance plan is what will make you truly successful. The Atkins Diet provides you with that and contrary to popular belief depending you your body’s tolerance you may be able to have that potato again.
