Peak Physique in 2021: Complete Supplementation and Training Plan


Well, 2020 was certainly some kind of year. We here at ProSource hope you made the best of it, but we’re not sorry to see it go.

If you’re like many of us, you saw your bright, hopeful plans for an ideal physique and improved performance and fitness take a sharp left turn around March or so. Suddenly, we were all inside a lot more often than we used to be, and maybe indulging in some poor nutritional choices along the way. Maybe we saw our gyms close for a while too, leaving us to make do with a heck of a lot of push-ups, kettlebell swinging, and lots and lots (and lots) of cardio.

Again, if you stayed on track for your fitness goals in 2020, we salute you. For the rest of us, it’s time to get back to work.

Here’s where the experts in our ProSource Product Research Team can lend a hand. We've compiled an all-new nutrition and training plan to help you reach your physique, performance and fitness goals in 2021. Below you'll find the ideal supplements to support muscle gain and fat loss, timing guidelines, and a comprehensive weekly training regimen to help you attain your goals.

So what are we waiting for? Let's get started!

ProSource NytroWhey Ultra Elite
New and Improved for the New Year

Protein is the centerpiece of your nutritional efforts to add lean muscle mass and lose excess fat. It supports muscle growth, it's thermogenic in itself, and it even boosts metabolism. We're going to be suggesting optimal supplementation timing for each nutritional factor included here, but really, there's no one perfect time to drink a protein shake. Any time between major meals of the day is perfect, and you can even work protein powder into your main meal recipes like soups, baked goods and stir-fry.

Long story short, protein builds muscle and muscle tissue is literally the furnace that burns excess fat. So as part of your transformation, you're going to be supplementing with plenty of protein, and you need to make sure that that protein is generating maximum muscle support.

 



Enter NytroWhey Ultra Elite, the gold standard of premium proteins, which (we're happy to announce) has been reformulated in time for the new year! The new NytroWhey Ultra Elite packs all the unrivaled protein power it always has, and is now gluten-free and ideally suited for clean, healthy, low-carb diets.

NytroWhey Ultra Elite long ago earned its reputation as the serious athlete's protein. It contains a matrix of protein technologies designed to exponentially increase protein synthesis, support recovery, and drive significant growth. The ultra-premium-grade, cold-processed CFM whey protein isolate in NytroWhey Ultra Elite is loaded with critical growth catalysts primed for rapid-action muscle support. For even faster uptake, advanced whey protein hydrolysates yield extremely low-molecular-weight di- and tri-peptides for super-swift absorption into muscle tissue. And its state-of-the-art leucine peptide technology is designed to more efficiently transport leucine to muscle tissue, making it a muscle-building powerhouse of unprecedented power and productivity.

Nutrient Timing: Any time of the day is perfect for NytroWhey Ultra Elite


BetaStax® Elite: State-of-the-Art Diet
Support and Energy Support Co-Factors

Now that your protein intake is leveled up, it’s time to add a powerful fat-loss/energizing agent to your regimen. The best time to take a thermogenic supplement is first thing in the morning, or as early in the day as possible.

In a category where numerous products have come and gone over the years, BioQuest's BetaStax Elite has stood the test of time because it works. BetaStax Elite’s key active ingredient, PureWay-Slim, has delivered clinically validated and significant reductions in body weight, waist, and hip circumferences in as little as two weeks.

 


Even better, in a comparison of clinical studies, BetaStax Elite's PureWay-Slim blend achieved more weight-loss in those two weeks than other leading weight-loss compounds delivered in eight weeks. BetaStax Elite also contains a number of other cutting-edge fat-loss agents in its formula which work synergistically with PureWay-Slim.

If you're restricting calories in any way in the new year, BetaStax Elite offers one other key benefit. It contains a unique matrix of premium-grade energy factors that will help you avoid the energy crashes so common in the early phases of dieting, while also helping you power through truly productive workouts.

Nutrient Timing: Preferably in the morning and not after 3pm, when it can interfere with rest


CellDyne VyoCore: Muscle-Supporting
Pre-Workout Performance Enhancement

Physique transformation is hard work, and a lot of it is achieved on the training room floor. So you're going to want to prime every physiological factor -- strength, endurance, intensity, recovery capacity -- to help you achieve new benchmarks in performance and total work output. In short, you're going to need a new kind of pre-workout technology, one that goes far beyond the simple caffeine buzz of outdated products in the category.

 

 

VyoCore from CellDyne is on the vanguard of an exciting evolution in the science of performance enhancement, featuring precision catalysts designed to help athletes achieve dramatic increases in performance benchmarks and dominate the competition. VyoCore's key active ingredient, a patented form of adenosine 5*-triphosphate disodium identical to actual human ATP, has been validated in clinical studies in which test subjects experienced an average of 147% increase in strength compared to placebo, as well as a 30% increase in power, and a 96% increase in muscle thickness.

In addition, VyoCore contains an advanced osmolytic agent that hydrates cells in order to increase strength and endurance, plus a muscle-carnosine supporting mechanism that optimizes lactic-acid buffering in muscle to increase endurance, as well as state-of-the-art cell volumizers, recovery aminos, and organic energy and focus factors designed to provide a clean, powerful boost. It's a new year and the same old workouts won't cut it anymore. VyoCore will take you to a new level.

Nutrient Timing: Twenty to thirty minutes before your workout


Amino Fusion: The New Science of BCAA Muscle Support

The science of sports nutrition never rests, and here at ProSource we pride ourselves on doing the cutting-edge research and development that gives our loyal customers the ultimate physique and performance edge. Our newest product, Amino Fusion, unleashes the muscle-protein-synthesizing power of leucine to a new and unprecedented degree.

Amino Fusion is powered by a Two Phase Muscle + Growth Technology that delivers the essential aminos you need to build and repair muscle, swiftly and in optimized quantities, thus providing a uniquely powerful engine of lean muscle mass increase.

 


Its first phase is facilitated by rapid-uptake PepForm® Leucine Peptides precision-engineered to unleash a rapid intra-workout flood of leucine into the blood, triggering maximized protein synthesis. The second wave of instantized BCAAs then continues a steady flow of aminos into the blood, positively impacting endurance, while further optimizing post-workout growth and recovery.

This mechanism, combined with an electrolyte matrix for elevated muscle cell hydration and other performance-enhancing co-factors is already enabling athletes to leverage high-intensity resistance training more fully to make greater gains in muscle mass and performance.

Nutrient Timing: Before, during, and just after your workout

ProSource Vectron: Unique Muscle-Supporting Fat-Loss Protein Matrix

One of the best things you can do to support muscle growth and recovery is to consume some protein in the hours before bedtime. Nutrient gaps in your regimen offer your body a chance to slip into a catabolic state in which muscle tissue is broken down for fuel. Now you don't have to wake yourself up at 3am to eat a pork chop, but you can top off your blood amino levels just before sleep. If you're also interested in fat loss, a unique fat-loss, muscle-supporting protein technology may be your ideal choice.

 

 

Vectron from ProSource gives you all the fat-fighting power of protein, and does so in the context of its key main ingredient, a weight management system called Prolibra®. Prolibra is a unique fractionated protein complex that combines a specialized bioactive peptide matrix with a whey mineral complex to target both fat loss and muscle support.

In an independent, randomized, double-blind, 12-week clinical test of Prolibra, test subjects retained twice as much lean muscle, while at the same time experiencing 79% fat loss compared to a control group at 51% fat loss. That, loyal readers, is a real recipe for real transformational success!

Nutrient Timing: One to three hours before bedtime

And there you have it, a roadmap to physique and performance enhancement! Combine these nutritional guidelines with the training protocols below and we foresee good news on the fitness front in your future.
