6AM Products. How I Use Them And For What Distances!
Disclaimer: Please note everybody is different. Something different works for everyone. The following is what works for me personally and simply my recommendations. I encourage you to try different things and find what works best for you!
Let’s start with Vitamin Coffee. The Vitamin Coffee is fantastic because it has more benefits than your typical morning cup of coffee AND tastes delicious. It comes in many different flavors! All of our coffees provide a nutrition boost along with healthy energy from all natural sources. It includes 15 vitamins and minerals, including A,B-Complex, C, D3 and E.
I use one k cup every single morning.
Next, Marathon. It is our all in one product. It was designed to help you run faster, longer and recover fast. It comes in 2 flavors Peach Mango and Raspberry Iced Tea and currently, for a limited time, Green Apple flavor. You can take this pre workout, post workout or even during if you are hitting a longer workout! It is clean energy that comes from green tea leaves so no jitters or bloating! It combines twelve free form BCAA/Amino acids which is the perfect combination for energy, recovery and focus.
This is another one I take every single day. I take it about 20 minutes before my run or late morning on my rest days for a little energy boost. I also use Marathon for my longer races.
Sprint. This is the immediate high energy formula. It was designed to enhance energy, focus, power and stamina. Sprint gives you more of an immediate powerful surge but still no jitters or bloating. It comes in Grape, Fruit Punch and Lemonade.
I use Sprint for my workout days and shorter races.
FinishLine. This is an immediate post run BCAA recovery drink. It comes in Lemon Lime and Watermelon flavors. It is caffeine free. This drink was designed to help you recover faster. It also helps reduce muscle fatigue and build lean muscles. It is a blend of Branched Chain Amino Acids and Glutamine to help build lean muscle AND recover. Our BCAAs also have B6 added which helps enhance the absorption of the BCAAs.
I take this one every single day as well. I take it immediately after my run or at night on my rest days.
Super Greens. This is the ultimate nutrient dense superfood powder. It is completely organic and has over 30 nutrient-rich greens and super fruits for a healthy boost. Daily use is very important to get all of the benefits. It boosts your immune system, reduces inflammation, detoxifies and promotes healthy digestion.
Keep in mind everyBODY is different so I encourage you to test different times of the day. For me personally, I find it works best when I take it at night. I take it every single night after all of my food is done for the day. I feel it works overnight to help my body digest all of my food from the day and then I typically have a movement first thing in the morning.
Powerflex. This is another daily use supplement. You take 3 capsules everyday, preferably 30 minutes before a meal. It is the ultimate joint and flexibility formula. It helps with inflammation, stress and can help increase flexibility.
I take mine in the morning before breakfast.
