Hey lady! Did you know that you lose an average of 5% of your muscle mass every 10 years after the age of 35 if you don’t do anything about it? 😲 Yikes!
Not worried about having muscles 💪🏼 to flex? That’s ok BUT keep in mind that when you lose muscle, you gain weight. Plain and simple! 🤷🏻♀️ If you don’t intentionally rebuild muscle through exercise and diet, you would need to eat 150 to 450 fewer calories every day, every 10 years to maintain your current weight! 😱 And when I say exercise, I mean resistance training 👌🏻 I don’t know about you, but I want to keep eating all the food! 😂 AND I REFUSE to lose the muscle that I’ve worked so hard to build!
Keeping the weight off definitely got harder for me after the age of 35 (I’m 37 now..) So that is why every day after my workout, I have my BCAAs for muscle recovery. Not only is it a pretty drink that tastes like chocolate (I added blueberries 😉), BUT it serves SOO many different purposes! I just started taking them last January and have noticed a HUGE difference in my results since then! Not to mention less muscle soreness between workouts and a quicker recovery time. 👍🏻 BCAA supplements can enhance stamina during explosive exercises. They contain the three branched chain amino acids: leucine, isoleucine and valine. BCAAs allow for increased protein synthesis in the body. This allows for maximum muscle recovery = more muscle growth! Leucine specifically is the golden ticket! It is responsible for slowing down muscle degradation by creating muscle proteins. It is used by the liver, body fat, and muscle to increase energy and endurance. Also helps maintain proper blood sugar and preserves lean tissue.
This is VITAL to successful weight loss as it works directly to prevent muscle loss and ensure that the weight you lose is FAT not MUSCLE! 👌🏻 And added bonus! 👉🏻 BCAAs can be easily used during or after exercise to reduce fatigue, accelerate recovery, reduce muscle soreness, and improve the use of fat for energy. 💥Boom! That is my kind of supplement! 🙌🏻😎 ☝🏻Make sure you look for one that does not have fillers like soy, chemicals, artificial flavors and colors and other junk! 😝😉
