BCAA's! Branched chain amino acids! Leucine, isoleucine, valine! They're 3 of the 9 essential amino acids the body needs to survive. This means that the body cannot make them and we must get them from food. Why are they used? To prevent muscular fatigue, increase protein synthesis and increase muscle growth. Leucine is the one to look out for, directly influencing muscle protein synthesis and can be converted into glucose. It helps with injury healing - like what we to muscles when we lift weights creating microtears (side note - leucine is so effective and healing injuries that it's used to after surgery and to treat burn victims!). Look for a high amount of Leucine - 3g per serving minimum. Isoleucine induces glucose uptake meaning more muscular endurance and promotes clotting which helps to repair muscle tissue. Valine is used as a source of energy to prevent muscle breakdown and helps to remove nitrogen from the liver (which can be toxic and is a product of protein turnover). Our best selling BCAA is PNI Pure Amino Advanced which has 6.8g of Leucine per serving and 540mg of Isoleucine & Valine. It's also got 3.6g of Glutamine which aside from being the most abundant amino acid in thr body, also helps with gut health, improved protein metabolism and protects against catabolism. And as if that wasn't enough Pure Amino Advanced has a Potassium, Magnesium, Sodium blend of electrolytes to prevent dehydration. It's available in store and online in 2 flavours; Apple & Blackcurrant and Raspberry for £34.99.

Hey Everyone! Thanks to all of those who reached out to check if I had been kidnapped... as I went dark on Instagram for almost an entire week 👀 I am alive and well! I had the opportunity to do my first fitness interview on Thursday 😅😅😅 For those of you who have followed my sorry for a while, you know I've always struggled with confidence. In September, I started working with a life coach - @shanarobinson.ca - and through our time together, I've grown a TON with personal confidence! I still have work to do, but I'm confident I'll overcome those hurdles! The interview was a blast! The old version of myself would've been hyper critical - but I feel like it went well! There's always improvements that can be made and lessons to be learned - I've already listened to it and taken notes and I'll be better the next time I get an opportunity! Check out the podcast - my interview starts at the 14 minute mark and runs through 1:06 (Link is in the bio). We talk about wrestling, some common fitness questions people have, and briefly about my company, Temby Training (launching in February). The lesson for today is if you're not happy with where you're at - whether it's relationships, career, finances, confidence, health, fitness, or addictions - it's OK to ask for help! I'd love to help you with your fitness goals - message me to find out how to join my FREE 8 week challenge starting 1/30! #tembytraining#smallstepsgreatdistances#breatheuniversity#teamatrain#rebrandyou#executionisworshipped#winnerswin#noregrets#entrepreneur#business#gains#fit#fitness#fitfam#instafit#fitspo#bodybuilding#muscle#gym#health#coach#motivation#inspiration#photooftheday#happy#smile#blessed#saturday#abs#back
