I just wanted to take the time to share my personal experiences with AMS' Body Mortar.
A complex of BCAA's utilizing the superior 4:1:1 ratio.
Fitness is something that people strive for in many different ways and for many different reasons. Some do it simply because they enjoy it, some earn a living with it, and even some may depend on it for their or others lives. I am sure those are, but just a few reasons. For me, I fall into 2 out of the 3 I mentioned. This has led me to include endurance races such as 10k's, half & full marathons, and perhaps a triathlon or ultra someday into my fitness routines.
Because during training and endurance races one risks reaching states of catabolism along with a need to stay energized or refueled is why BCAA's have become a staple of mine. Of course, AMS' Body Mortar happens to be my favorite. Just can't beat the 4:1:1 ratio, great flavors, and good prices.
I've been using Body Mortar about a year, year and a half now. I use it for my weight lifting sessions, crossfit workouts, and yes for my marathons. For my races I've used it prior, during, and post race.
For example yesterday I ran my first race of the season, The Marine Corps Marathon's Irish Sprint 10k with an official chip time of 1:00:01 and of course I had my Body Mortar with me!!
Below are a couple pics along with a link for my Garmin GPS info, showing the course, my splits, and more details (if you are interested).
Lastly, I've reserved the second post for more of an official write up on Body Mortar.
