Firefighter and Firefighter Combat Challenge participant, Hannah Johnson trains hard every day. She started using Vitargo about 12 years ago as a competitive powerlifter. She used the fast carbs in Vitargo mixed with water as a way to rehydrate after weigh-ins.
Once she became a firefighter and her workout routine completely changed, she used Vitargo to fuel her training during recruit school. It made a huge difference in her capabilities and did not cause bloating or nausea, which is very important when your work involves intense physical activity in extreme heat.
This is how the WNBA player Sue Bird of the Seattle Storm integrates Vitargo into her practices, games, and post recovery routines.
“It is pretty simple. Vitargo is my mainstay. I’ve been using Vitargo now for close to 10 plus years. It started out as a game day thing before every game. I actually use three scoops now. I’ve graduated to this. So I use three scoops 30-40 minutes before the game. I’ll drink half of that (about a scoop in a half and you gotta shake and shake that thing for no clumps). I then drink the other half at halftime.
“Hi I’m Everett Sloan, I own Crossfit ByTown in Ottawa, Ontario. I’ve competed at a regional level in crossfit and weightlifting and in Strongman. I’m currently the provincial champions Strongman, competed at a national level in that as well.
The question isn’t whether or not to eat carbohydrate. If you exercise to enhance performance, you probably know you need carbohydrate in your diet to achieve that goal. The question I am most commonly asked is what, when and how to eat carbohydrate. I answer by saying “put your carbs to work for you”
Carbohydrates fuel physical action and mental function. The greater the intensity of your movement the more carbohydrate is required. Sitting at the desk, watching a movie, walking your dog, household chores, all use a tiny bit of carbohydrate, but not much.
A funny question coming from a scientist, but it’s a question that I am asked all the time. Can companies really prove all the things that they claim? Isn’t it too hard and too expensive to do research?
What I ask myself when companies make claims but don’t have any published research data to back them up is: don’t they want to know if their product works? Or improve it so it works better?
