Let’s talk about some things that are awesome.
1. Snow, which is currently fluttering gently from the sky at this very moment.
2. Christmas socks, which I am currently wearing.
3. The Glee Christmas Album, which I am currently listening to.
4. Being able to use my calves again, which I can finally do after a day and a half of post-Filthy 50 hobbling.
5. Free stuff, which I am about to give to you!
I bought some Gamma Labs PTF mix from their Black Friday sale last month and to be honest I was pretty skeptical because energy drinks typically make me feel like I am on crack. I never even drink coffee because it will literally keep me awake for days. So the first time I tried Gamma Labs was for a WOD first thing in the morning to make sure it would have plenty of time to wear off in case it DID make me all crazy, but I was really surprised that I hardly felt a jolting blast of energy at all but more of a just a slight pick-me-up… Just enough to give me a boost going into the workout but not enough to make me feel jittery. I can even take it before 7PM WODs and it will wear off before bedtime with no problem.
But even more importantly, I immediately noticed a HUGE increase in my mental fortitude. I am used to feeling really fuzzy by about halfway through a WOD, but since starting to use PTF before workouts I have felt much more focused and clear-headed. This has made it a lot easier to attack the mental aspect of WODs. I think that 90% of the time, your brain gives up before your muscles do–but honestly using this mix has made a big difference for me in that sense.
Oh, AND it tastes awesome. Not chalky-protein-powder awesome, but actually awesome.
Right now they are doing a 2-for-1 Christmas Promo, where every order will be doubled for free. But you can also WIN a case of 20 single serve packets of Gamma Labs PTF right here!
