RUGBY WHEY

Without a potent whey protein supplement, rugby players often spend Sundays on their backs, begging their partners to bring over some water. A single scoop of Rugby Whey after your game and another the next morning will get you to Sunday brunch and beyond. Go from brittle new guy to athletic stud by fueling up on Rugby Whey after gym sessions, training and rugby games.

Faster recovery from rugby games

Recovering from a rugby game requires three primary building blocks: electrolytes, amino acids and protein. Because of the physical nature of rugby, it's not enough to replace the fluids and carbohydrates you've burned up during your 80-minute match. You also need to give your body the building blocks of muscle repair. Whey protein is widely used by athletes of all sorts after gym and sprint sessions to help build lean muscle mass. But for rugby players, it's best used in combination with other fuels. 

Why recovery matters

It's always tempting after a rugby game to head straight for the showers with a cold beer in hand. We're partial to that too. But keep in mind that the 30 minutes after you leave field are the most crucial for recovery. It's during this period that your heart rate is accelerated, your adrenaline is up and your body is thirsting for fuel. Physically, its the best time to replenish with foods that are going to help support muscle recovery. You want to do this before your heart rate slows and your liver starts breaking down the wrong fuel.

The limitations of Whey Protein alone

As we've mentioned, getting some high-quality whey protein is the perfect post-rugby recovery fuel. But in order for it to be absorbed quickly into your depleted muscles, you need to have good circulation. This is where using Rugby Whey in combination with Post-Rugby is such a game-changer. As l-arginine becomes nitric oxide, it provides a circulatory benefit that helps your body move nutrients through your blood stream. The faster you can get fuel to your muscles after a game of rugby, the faster you'll recover back to full strength. 

Usage Instructions

Post-rugby nutrition is a critical step in fully preparing for your next rugby training or rugby game. You've read the why, now let's talk about the how. We recommend taking a full scoop of Post-Rugby within 30 minutes of the completion of your game. 

While Post-Rugby provides the electrolytes and branch-chain amino acids your body needs to replenish cells and boost protein synthesis, you also need fuel for muscle repair. That's where Rugby Whey comes in. We recommend taking a heaped scoop within an hour of the completion of a game. Preferable AFTER taking Post-Rugby. 

TRANSPARENT LABELING

We are committed to providing the cleanest supplements on the market. That's why none of our new supplement formulas contain proprietary blends of any kind. Know your supplements and let's help keep rugby clean
