There are several mechanisms at work that enhance the body’s ability to build muscle through Isagenix.
- 1. It improves Digestive Function and balances the body at the cellular level so it can better absorb and utilize more protein and nutrients from food. Therefore, it can accomplish more on a lower intake of calories and protein than the body would normally need without Isagenix.
- 2. Nutritional Cleansing triggers an increase in the body’s natural production of Testosterone & Growth Hormone HGH (the 2 key muscle-building hormones) while also balancing cortisol levels (the stress hormone). Excess cortisol [caused by stress, lack of rest and resistance training] leads to visceral fat retention – the nasty stuff around your organs that is difficult to shift.
- 3. Adaptogens assist the body’s ability to adapt to exercise stress.
- 4. In addition, the nutrient profile of the products and how the system balances the body, enhances the recovery process and strengthens immune function.
- 5. Conveniently provides higher quality Proteins, Macros and Micros than we can get from our diet.
So the benefit is 3 fold. Getting better quality food into your system (all natural, nothing artificial), improving your recovery and reducing your cortisol levels.
If you are an athlete or highly active, it is important to adjust the standard Isagenix schedule to ensure that your goals are being met. Here are some other schedules to have a look through and adjust your eating habits towards the goals that you have. Regardless of your level, cleansing is still an incredibly important aspect. Athletes need to cleanse more often than sedentary people ~ Think about how hard you’re pushing your bodies every day – wanting the very best from them.
Because athletes breathe 12 – 20 times more air and have higher metabolic demands they tend to have a higher exposure to toxins and waste by-products.
ALTHLETE SCHEDULE & VARIED FOOD DIARIES:
The standard shake schedule that comes in your starter pack is for sedentary people, looking for weight loss. For an active athlete looking for energy and performance, their schedule needs to be adjusted accordingly. Athletes train harder and require more fuel, quickly and easily. The convenience of an IsaLeanPro shake straight after training, supplementary to clean eating can not be understated for an athlete. Because every athlete requires a different diet against their individual training schedule, it is impossible to set a standard schedule for athletes. Rather, there are examples below based on your training needs.
NB: These schedules were put together before the addition of the AMPED products into the Isagenix range. See how to add these products in below:
