Recover, Repair and Replenish to Build Muscle
They don’t call you “shredded” for nothing. Post workout, your muscle fibers have taken a beating. And if you don’t take care of them today, they may let you down tomorrow. That’s why we created Post-WOD™, the delicious, clean nutritional supplement scientifically formulated with ingredients to protect joints, reduce stress, repair existing muscle and build new muscle so you can tackle tomorrow’s WOD with as much intensity as you tackled today’s.
How PostWOD™ Works
You’ve torn through your WOD—literally. Muscle fibers are damaged, you’ve burned through your glycogen stores, and the stress hormones released during a heavy workout have challenged your immune system and joints.But there’s good news. In the first 90 minutes after an intense workout, your depleted muscles are uniquely able to absorb and utilize a muscle repairing protein boost that will help you undo the damage.
Post-WOD™ is also the time for a blast of insulin, which helps muscle fibers take up amino acids—the building blocks of new muscles—and replenishes the glucose stores that you’ve just obliterated. It’s also the optimal time to fortify your body’s immune system and natural repair processes with antioxidants and pure nutrients.
We designed PostWOD™ to be an anabolic powerhouse that offers all the best post-workout nutrients and dietary supplements, protein, carbs,branch-chain amino acids, and muscle-builders in one convenient blend.One shake can help you make the most of today’s WOD, and get ready for tomorrow’s, too.
A Clean, Gut-Friendly Formula
Driven® Nutrition’s pharmaceutical-quality manufacturing processes and on going batch testing guarantee purity, and our clean formulas help prevent embarrassing gastro-intestinal upset.
Fast-acting, highly concentrated Whey Protein digests faster than all other forms of protein, and delivers an amino triple-threat that gives your body the raw materials it needs to build new muscle fibers.
Rapidly-absorbed carbohydrates replenish your muscles’ glyco genstores to give you the fuel you need to tear through your next WOD. They also help deliver nutrients deep into depleted muscle tissues.
Essential BCAAs L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine work synergistically with PostWOD’s other ingredients to promote your muscles’ uptake of fuel, boost muscle synthesis, suppress muscle breakdown, increase power and reduce fatigue—allowing you to go harder, longer.
Strength-boosting Creatine Monohydrate—the most bioavailable form of creatine—helps you muscle up faster, and may also improve mood,spike growth hormone levels, and potentially reduce exercise-induced DNA damage, so you can feel confident that you’re getting the best possible results from all your hard work.
We’ve paired the creatine with Alpha-Lipoic Acid, a powerful antioxidant that helps increase muscular creatine levels compared to creatine alone,and also helps protect and repair your joints. Other joint-protective ingredients include MSM to help reduce soreness, and Glucosamine Sulfate and Cissus to help reduce collagen degradation and pain.
What should I take post workout, PostWod or Driven Whey?
These are a few of the post workout questions we have answered about Driven Whey™ and PostWod™. If you have some of the same questions we thought we could break it down for you with a quick “how to” for each product.
PostWod, Recovery Salvation just in time for the Open!
Getting sore to the point of deciding “just how bad to I really need to use the toilet” is a right of passage shared by newbies and veterans in the affiliate community. Soreness is part of the game, we embrace it and honestly, would feel a bit cheated if we didn’t have a slight discomfort standing up in the aftermath of a brutal WOD.
PostWod: Post Workout Science or Recovery Magic?
It’s widely known that in order to perform your best, you need to maximize your post workout recovery. We formulated PostWod to do just that. While everyone knows you need your post workout protein and carbohydrates it’s less understood why. Let’s take a trip back to exercise science 101 and get a quick refresher course.
Amino Must Knows, Why YOU Should Be Taking BCAA’s Every WOD
BCAA’s or Branched Chain Amino Acids are three all star Essential Amino Acids (EAA) that get their name from their fork or branch like structure. Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine are becoming well known for intra or pre-workout supplementation. We want to give you our top reasons why they should be on your must have list.
Nothing gets into a Driven® Nutrition workout supplement unless we’re confident it can help you achieve your fitness and strength goals. Our evidence-based products are formulated according to the most persuasive clinical studies we can find. Here are just a few samples of the available research on some of our ingredients.
