HIGH-INTENSITY SPORTS PERFORMANCE

PVM’s High-Intensity range has been carefully developed and refined over decades to meet the specific nutrient and energy demands of high-intensity sport (≤ 90 minutes) where the glycolytic energy system dominates.

Appropriate synchronisation and periodisation of training and nutrition enhances the training effects and adaptations (metabolic, physiological etc.) whilst increasing high-intensity capacity and quick recovery during high-intensity bouts.

Specific nutrient intake before, during and after training/competition can either enhance or negate the positive effects of training.

Therefore, the amount, timing and composition of nutritional intake (chrono nutrition) before, during and after training/competition is crucial to sustain high power output at various training intensities and ensure optimal performance when competing.

TRAINING GOALS:
HIGH-INTENSITY SPORTS

The main goals of incorporating our high-intensity range during training and competition are to:

  1. Optimise the anaerobic glycolytic and lactic acid system.
    • Delay the onset of intracellular lactic acid appearance.
    • Increase intracellular hydrogen and ammonia buffer clearance capacity.
    • Increase the clearance of blood lactate.
    • Sufficient substrate for metabolic reactions.
  2. Sufficient sport-specific aerobic glycolytic and lipolytic capacity.
  3. Shortened recovery time.
  4. Maintain mental alertness and decision-making ability.
  5. Ensure biomechanical efficiency.
  6. Maintain high power output.

GLYCOGEN
LOADING

1-2 days prior to an event

Glycogen storage entails the storage of carbohydrates in the muscles and liver in order to increase endogenous energy availability (stored energy). Stored glycogen delays the onset of fatigue and is the preferred source of energy during high-intensity training.

Note: For gym training sessions refer to power & strength or hypertrophy guidelines

REIGNITE

Energy and muscle recovery drink
  • Easy and effective glycogen storage & glycogen supercompensation.
  • Research-backed 3-4:1 ratio of carbohydrates to protein.
  • Replenishes electrolyte loss with added minerals (Na, K, Cl, P & Mg).
  • No fibre to prevent satiety.

Available in 2 flavours

PRE-EVENT
MEAL

Pre-event Meal 2-3 hours prior an event

Specific macronutrient types hours prior to training/competing have a significant impact on the macronutrients used during physical exertion. An appropriate pre-event meal provides essential nutrition and energy and ensures stable blood sugar levels without the experience of gastro-intestinal discomfort. Furthermore, adequate fluid intake contributes to towards good a hydration status.

FUSION

Advanced meal replacement
  • Balanced & light meal replacement.
  • Convenient pre-event meal.
  • Stabilises blood sugar levels with protein, slow-and
    intermediate releasing carbohydrates.
  • Small amounts of fat & fibre to prevent gastrointestinal discomfort.

Energy &
Hydration

Appropriate and adequate fluid and nutritional intake during physical activity is essential for optimal athletic performance and aims to increase the workload that can be sustained at various exercise intensities. It provides energy, helps to stabilise blood sugar levels and aids with hydration and the replacement of electrolytes lost through sweat, which is essential to maintain high power output. Specific nutrients like certain peptides and ergogenic aids (like caffeine and carbohydrates) may improve performance. Exogenous carbohydrate intake also spares glycogen, that is the preferred source of energy during high-intensity training.

OCTANE XTR

High-intensity performance energy drink
  • Multiple transportable carbohydrates for fast absorption.
  • Instant energy availability with stable blood sugar levels.
  • Reduces muscle damage with whey protein peptides.
  • Promotes hydration.
  • Replenishes electrolyte loss with added minerals (Na, K, Cl & P).
  • Protein peptides & minerals act as pH buffers, that may delay the onset of muscle fatigue.

Available in 3 flavours

OCTANE GEL

Blood glucose stabilising energy gel
  • Compact source of instant and sustained energy.
  • 3% protein, MCTs, anti-oxidants and L-carnitine.
  • Replenishes electrolyte loss with added minerals (Na, K, Cl, P & Mg).
  • Protein & minerals act as pH buffers, that may delay the onset of muscle fatigue.
  • Chocolate flavour contains 100 mg caffeine (improved performance & mental alertness).

Available in 4 flavours

PVM ENERGY BAR

Compact source of energy & nutrition
  • Convenient & compact source of instant and sustained energy.
  • Stabilise blood sugar levels with combined carbohydrates, protein and fat.
  • Aids the metabolism with added B-vitamins.
  • High in anti-oxidants to help repair oxidative damage.

IMMEDIATE
RECOVERY

A recovery “window of opportunity” exists directly after physical exertion. The intake of specific nutrients after training have a significant impact on the ability to recover for subsequent training bouts and to shift the metabolism from a catabolic to anabolic state. Adequate and specific carbohydrate and protein intake in specific ratio’s, increases glycogen replenishment. Fluid and electrolyte intake ensure the replenishment of fluid and electrolytes lost in sweat.

Note: For power & strength or hypertrophy gym sessions refer to the Creatine guidelines after training.

REIGNITE

Energy and muscle recovery drink
  • Effective glycogen replenishment with fast and slow release carbohydrates.
  • Research backed 3-4:1 ratio of carbohydrates to protein.
  • Promotes hydration.
  • Replenishes electrolyte loss with added minerals (Na, K, Cl, P & Mg).
  • 6 g L-Glutamine per 75 g serving.

PROLONGED
RECOVERY

(DURING SLEEP)

Muscle protein synthesis is elevated hours after exercise. At night time, during sleep, the release of growth hormones is naturally increased. Growth hormones and amino acid availability plays an essential role in muscle protein synthesis. Various time-released protein sources before bedtime ensures sustained amino acid availability that is crucial for optimal muscle repair and synthesis (growth).

PROTEIN XTR

Precision release protein for muscle recovery, maintenance and growth
  • High Biological Value Protein sources (high quality protein).
  • Complete range of amino acids.
  • Extended amino acid availability through varied time release proteins.
  • High in BCAAs.
  • Promotes effective muscle damage repair and protein synthesis (growth).
  • No plant-based proteins.
