The CrossFit Open is one the largest fitness events in the world. Hundreds of thousands of CrossFit devotees vie to see where their fitness ranks. A select few will advance to Regional events, and even fewer will make it to the CrossFit Games. For some, the Open is about qualifying for subsequent rounds. For the vast majority of participants, it's about gauging their fitness and giving it their best effort.
PROGENEX has been a critical ingredient to Open success from its inception and not just for elite athletes. With the right PROGENEX product strategy, you can be prepped to give it your best each week.
Not only is muscle Recovery key to achieving your best fitness, but it's also critical to excelling in the Open workouts. Just because your box is doing the Open on Saturday morning, doesn’t mean that you’re taking off Monday through Friday. You will need to recover from your previous workouts to give the Open workouts your best effort.
PROGENEX Recovery is designed to address post-workout muscle recovery. PROGENEX Recovery is a fast absorbing hydrolyzed whey protein isolate. A university clinical trial demonstrated that athletes who consume servings of hydrolyzed whey protein isolate post-workout not only recover faster, but they recover stronger than athletes who consume water or a generic whey protein isolate.
Returning to your baseline strength using another protein (or nothing at all) can take as long as 72 hours. So if you want to give it your best effort on Saturday, you can either skip the gym for three days before the Open workout OR take PROGENEX Recovery immediately after each workout, so you are strong and ready to go.
Intense workouts need focus, energy, and stamina. But sometimes our bodies just can’t produce the required help we need to push our muscles to their fullest potential and optimum performance. PROGENEX Force contains a special proprietary blend of ingredients that is specifically formulated to maximize your body’s ability to train harder and longer so that you can realize superior results. Just one serving of PROGENEX Force and you will feel the power surge, enabling you to experience increased blood flow, increased oxygen transport and extended VO2 max, which will boost your mental focus to the max. Try one serving of PROGENEX Force 10-15 minutes before your Open workout and amaze yourself with what you can do!
Sleep It Off
The best things in life always come in threes… to complete this trifecta, add PROGENEX Cocoon to the mix. Cocoon combines a slow-digesting low-lactose micellar casein with a world-class l-tryptophan peptide to deliver a night of restful sleep. Our bodies rely on sleep to fully-recover, but caffeine-fueled days and the stresses of life lead most of us to have sub-optimal sleep. PROGENEX Cocoon enables you to recover while you rest. Add this product to your daily regimen, optimize your sleep and hit each day refreshed and ready to go!
Progenex, for how you move. We are committed to providing quality products that will prepare you for training and accelerate recovery. Return to your next workout/ADVENTURE faster and stronger in the pursuit of the lifestyle you were born to live.
