With summer closing in on us and the holiday season in full flow, it’s that time of year when we all desire that “beach body” for the perfect summer selfies and Instagram poses. We all have our own way of getting the desired look and for me it tends to revolve around a healthy and balanced diet alongside regular exercise, whether it be cardio, weight training or a mix of both.
In order to make sure that my body stays hydrated and my muscles recover from this exercise I turned to Herbalife 24 and their range of fitness supplements which are scientifically developed in order to concentrate on delivering exactly what they advertise as opposed to trying to offer an all in one solution.
The Herbalife 24 products I have been using are their CR7 Drive, Rebuild Strength and Restore which all provide different outputs depending on the type of exercise you are undertaking.
In order to develop their CR7 Drive product, Herbalife 24 teamed up with esteemed footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, as well as experts in sports nutrition to develop a carbohydrate-electrolyte drink which is high in Vitamin B12 which helps to keep your immune system and heart in good shape as well as helping to reduce tiredness and fatigue. I have been running a lot recently before my holiday and whether I am doing a steady run or HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) session this product helps a lot to keep you hydrated and it tastes brilliant. I tend to drink my CR7 during my run but I have drunk the whole lot prior to running before and I still felt the same benefits. This is not a pre-workout drink and isn’t jam packed full of caffeine so you will have no problems sleeping at night after using it.
For their Rebuild Strength product Herbalife 24 teamed up with sports nutritionists in order to develop a unique carbohydrate-protein recovery drink which is designed for use after anaerobic exercise. Each shake contains roughly 25g of protein which contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass as well as Iron which contributes to the normal formation of red blood cells. After a HIIT cardio workout or combined HIIT cardio and weights session I will take a shake immediately after finishing my workout which definitely helps to cure the DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) that can wreak havoc after strenuous exercise. Like the CR7 Drive product this tastes great and isn’t a horrible grainy protein shake that you often find.
Restore has been produced with athletes in mind, and I can tell a lot of you are thinking, but Robbie is far from an athlete but in my eyes if you do a good amount of exercise each week this is a good product for you as it contains 200mg of Vitamin C which helps to keep your immune system in check during and after intense exercise. These little capsules also contain 150mg of Lactium which is derived from a form of Casein, which helps to rebuild your muscles slowly whilst you sleep at night. For use, all you have to do is take one capsule prior to bed and let it do the business. Results won’t be seen immediately and we will always have aches and pains but these little capsules help to support the body’s natural response to temporary, exercise-induced Muscle Inflammation.
Since starting my journey with Herbalife 24 i have seen a significant improvement in both my aerobic and anaerobic fitness with my run times improving by approximately 2 minutes in just over a month of use and my strength levels and my stamina whilst completing a HIIT weights session improving which in turn means I can slowly up the time of my workouts each time, thus in turn improving my overall muscle strength and stamina. If you are looking to start your very own fitness journey or looking for a change in the supplements you use, Herbalife’s 24 range is definitely one to take seriously in amongst the chaos that is the fitness supplement world.
All of the Herbalife 24 product range are on the Informed Sport website meaning that they have been tested for banned substances. For personnel serving in the Armed Forces, Police and also for competing athletes the Herbalife 24 range is cleared for lift-off.
