As a football player you are extremely active and physical so your mind and body must be in sync. Taking GAME TIME prior to games and practices will increase endurance and intensity.
In Phase I of the clinical trial conducted at the University of Oklahoma (Fukuda et al. 2009; Smith et al. 2009), GAME TIME was shown to increase athletes’ time-to-exhaustion during high-speed running by 10-12% (Smith et al. 2009). GAME TIME also improved the athletes’ anaerobic running capacity by 11% (Fukuda et al. 2009), which is the energy in muscle associated with running at maximal speed.
What does this mean for football players? It means they can run farther and faster after taking GAME TIME. What athlete wouldn’t benefit from that? For example, 30 minutes after taking GAME TIME, a wide receiver would be able to maintain his route at maximal speed for an additional 13 yards. A punt or kickoff returner would be able to sustain his initial running speed for an additional 45 – 78 yards. A running back could expect a 10-12% increase in open-field yardage per run.
Basically, taking GAME TIME prior to a football game will delay fatigue which will keep your muscles fresher and allow you to perform better. Imagine being outrun because your muscles didn’t have anything left in the tank! Give your body GAME TIME to make sure that doesn’t happen.
How should football players take GAME TIME?
GAME TIME is a pre-workout, pre-competition formula, so it can be taken at any point throughout the year during training and competition phases. One packet (2 servings) of GAME TIME should be mixed with 8 oz of cold water and taken 30 min prior to a football practice, general workout, or a game. However, if you’re in the middle of two-a-days practices, don’t sweat! You can take up to 2 packets per day as long as you allow at least an hour or 2 between packets. So take a packet of GAME TIME 30 min before a game, and then again at half time.
PRESEASON contains creatine, amino acids, and a high-glycemic carbohydrate, which when taken together, have been shown to increase strength and size (Bird et al. 2006; Kerksick et al. 2008). These active ingredients in PRESEASON work by increasing the energy stores and increasing protein synthesis in the muscle cells allowing you to push your body further to become bigger, faster, and stronger.
How should football players take PRESEASON?
PRESEASON is a formula designed to improve strength and performance in the off-season, and to help your performance peak just as the season starts. So for most athletes, simply mix 1 packet (2 servings) of PRESEASON with 12 oz of cold water and drink it within 1 hour after your workouts. Don’t worry, though, there is enough creatine in one packet of PRESEASON to last you the whole day! So there is no need to take more than one packet per day.
However, PRESEASON is not just limited to off- and pre-season training periods. Ingredients including the high-glycemic carbohydrates, creatine, and amino acids, makes PRESEASON versatile enough to be considered a “during” or “post-workout” supplement, too. Scientific studies by Bird et al. (2006) have shown that sipping on a carbohydrate/amino acid drink during a workout improves the training response by suppressing muscle breakdown and stimulating hormonal release. So, during the course of a season, mixing up a packet of PRESEASON and sipping on it throughout a practice is good idea. Small sips of PRESEASON can help you stay hydrated and keep your carbohydrate levels up so that your intensity doesn’t fall off during an intense practice.
If you can’t sip on PRESEASON during your workouts or practices, that’s okay! Just mix up a packet and take it as soon as you can afterwards. The water will definitely help with rehydration, and the high-glycemic carbohydrates will accelerate carbohydrate repletion, which is very important for recovery, too. In fact, for more help with recovery, mix a packet of PRESEASON to help you wash down the POST GAME gel caps. This post-workout combination would be the best to improve your recovery. Since there is plenty of creatine in one packet of PRESEASON, there is no need to take more than 1 packet per day.
Scientific studies have shown that post-workout amino acids supplements can improve muscle recovery and boost your immune system (Negro et al. 2008). Many professional players who take Training Day rely heavily on POST GAME:
“By the end of the season my body is so beat up, I am constantly sore, and don’t have the time to recover from week to week. Of the three Training Day products, POST GAME has shown me the most significant results because I am able to get the soreness out of the muscle by the next game, that is huge to a professional football player because I can compete at 100% each week, not many guys can say that by the end of the season…"
-Tony Scheffler, Tight End - Denver
POST GAME works by providing the muscle with the building blocks necessary for muscle growth and recovery. Taking POST GAME within 1 hour after workouts, practices, or games may improve your ability to recover for the next game, which is critical for playing at 100% throughout the season.
How should football players take POST GAME?
POST GAME is a gel cap supplement intended for post-game, post-workout, or post-competition. The amino acid combination in POST GAME was designed to promote recovery and suppress the breakdown of muscles and other tissues, which often results as players train throughout the season and off-season. It’s pretty difficult to recover from week to week during the football season. Taking POST GAME after all your practices, workouts, and games can help recovery for the next big game. The POST GAME gel caps should be taken with water immediately after a workout. For the best results, mix up a packet of PRESEASON to take with POST GAME. The combination can really help you stay on top of your game.
