--- Arginine Extreme™ ---
30 minutes before running:
Mix 1 scoop of Arginine Extreme™, 4 ounces orange juice, 1 scoop Mango Pineapple Rehydrate® plus 8 - 12 ounces water.

Used as a pre-workout supplement, Arginine Extreme™ helps muscle endurance and stamina during cardiovascular focused workouts.

Rehydrate® contains necessary carbs for energy production and muscle endurance plus minerals and electrolytes to maintain hydration.

In regards to taste, the mix provided above is my personal favorite. The orange juice adds to the taste plus a little more carbs, vitamin C, and potassium.



Optional recommendation :

advocare product - Thermoplus for improved metabolism of fat to energy

I have found that ThermoPlus® gives me a little extra edge in regards to energy. I like to take it an hour before my run along with the O2 Gold®. The claim for ThermoPlus® is better fat conversion for improved energy thus boosting metabolism. From experience, I have noticed it helps!

P90X Review and Recommended Beginner Program --
From a nutritional standpoint, the p90X diet recommends starting off in the first 2 phases eating low carb and does not follow current healthy recommendations. NutrActive does not support low carb diet plans due to known health issues related to this type of dieting if followed long term. Approach the P90X recommended diet plan with caution. The last phase of P90X's diet introduces carbs back into the diet, "cleverly" relating it to energy boosting. This is simply due to depleting your stored energy in the first phases of the diet plan and then repleting the stores in the last phase with carbs. Not rocket science and not recommended.

As for the fitness regimen -- It's hard core and not for the beginner. If you already have a fitness good base, then by all means, give this fitness plan a try. Following P90X will produce results!

If you have no fitness base, begin with Tony Horton's other fitness program (not as well publicized) -- "10 Minute Trainer". This is a good program to start with and then you can move on to Tony's P90X.
