Before a competition or after a hard period of training sleep is critical. Training is great but without recovery it gets you know where. I’ve been interested is sleep products because I know how important recovery is. I have heard negative comments like once you start you can’t sleep with out it, or you wake up tired and groggy.
Not with Energy by Science Sleep.
When I know the best thing I can do for training is get a good nights sleeps, two capsules get the job done.
I recently just started using the Energy Capsules. Depending upon the activity, I take anywhere from 2 to 4 capsules depending upon the activity and event.
I have found that Energy By Science Energy gives me the extra push when I need to really dig deep and push through. They give you the right amount of punch without feeling buzzed.
A healthy soultion for optimal results.
I started riding when I was in preschool using the neighbor's bikes. The first time I tried, I just went over to their house and grabbed the smallest one, hoped on and off I went.
A few months later I asked Mom to get me one. She said I first needed to learn how to ride a bike before I got one. I said "I do know how to ride, watch." I went over to the neighbor's backyard where they stored the bikes and grabbed the small one, hoped on and I was riding. Mom said "well I guess you do know how to ride." Shortly after that I got my 1st BMX bike.
At 39 I’m still riding as much as I can. Biking has been a major part of my life.
I started racing BMX bikes when I was very young. Through grade school and middle school, I went to the dirt tracks down the road everyday.
When I was in high school I got my first mountain bike, a 1989 Giant. I liked all the gears and it went faster than a BMX bike. The big wheels covered ground and you could ride it off road and jump it too. After a few rides I knew it would fit perfect in my life.
At the age of 19 I moved out of my parents house and into a house of young men who were mountain bike racers in Vail, Colorado. They asked if I road and I said "O-Yeah."
With the Experience of BMX racing, I was eager to give mountain bike racing a chance.
They took me to my first beginner's race and I was so impressed with all the athletes especially the Experts and Pros. I wanted to be like them, but had a ways to go.
After 4 years of riding, as often as I could, I finally made to the Expert class. From 19 to 36 I didn’t train. I just road my bike a lot and raced. At 37 I decided to take my racing more seriously and started training.
Now at 39 I’m a trained cyclist. I found I like training because it gives each ride a purpose, it pays off on race day and my personal goals get higher.
