We've created a checklist for you to help you survive your bank holiday weekend, so that you come out of the other end fresh and ready to smash the week!
Men, we all know what day it is when heading for a night out don't we? That's right, chest day! The majority of men out there like to get their pump on for their night out, so how do you go about achieving this? Well let me tell you, you need to get your hands on some of our Volt Preworkout! Our new and improved formula has x3 more caffeine content and comes in four fruity flavours! Don't fancy the Preworkout ladies? Why not try some of our Protein Coffee which helps to; improve focus, mental performance and physical endurance. Did I forget to mention that there's also 21g of premium quality protein per serving?
Not sure what to eat before the night out, want something light on the stomach that's going to fill you up? Why not try our Zero Carb Noodles? They're the perfect quick fix to mix with vegetables, meat or tofu! Don't fancy noodles? We recommend eating healthy fats before your night out. Fats slow down the rate at which the food leaves the stomach. The longer the food stays in the stomach = the slower the alcohol gets absorbed into your blood. This will reduce the symptoms of your hangover in the morning.
Drinking alcohol decreases the body's production of anti-diuretic hormones, this is used by the body to reabsorb water. This results in a loss of fluid due to increased urination, which is why when you wake up, 9 times out of 10 you will have a dry mouth! We cannot emphasise enough the importance of drinking water before going to bed and after waking up. But if you struggle to drink a lot of water at once, why not try our Electrolyte Tablets or Cocopure Water Powder. These are high in electrolytes and contain natural fruit sugars which provide energy by replenishing glycogen stores.
SleepWe all know that sleeping after drinking alcohol can end up in two ways, either dosing off as soon as your head hits the pillow, or staring blankly at the ceiling all night. On average it takes us one hour to process 1 unit of alcohol before going to sleep, but the reality is that we cannot stay awake all night waiting for this to happen. Luckily for you we have ZMA capsules that promote deep sleep and recovery as well as preventing inflammation and cell damage. It's best to take 3 capsules a day, approximately 30 minutes before bed.
