The Oceans7 is a grueling challenge consisting of seven of the most dangerous open water swims in the world. These swims range in distance from 9 to 26 miles, and must be completed without assistance from others, or the use of equipment of any kind.

During each swim, swimmers can expect to encounter strong currents, extreme cold, and dangerous sea life. Due to these factors, swimmers are permitted to have a support crew, and a safety boat. The crew is permitted to assist swimmers with hydration and nutrition stops every 30 minutes, to ensure they are getting the proper fuel to have a successful swim. Without the proper nutrition and hydration, it would be impossible to succeed.

 

We have been fortunate enough to team up with ANS Performance in pursuit of this challenge, and are excited to use these products throughout our training and preparation for each channel swim.

 

We will be the first set of twins in history to complete this challenge and have decided to use it as an opportunity to raise awareness for global ocean conservation efforts. We are passionate about the ocean, and the efforts that are made to protect it, and the environment. We are thrilled that ANS Performance shares our passion for conservation efforts, as they have pledged to donate funds for global reforestation projects through the sale of their new vegan Fresh1 protein. ANS Performance is setting the bar high, and we are lucky to have them in our corner!”

The subject of declining of testosterone levels is a growing conversation and while much can be discussed about the causes, at least part of the decline can be attributed to natural aging.  As men approach 30 years old, their testosterone levels begin to decline at about 1% per year. This is a gradual process and while not immediately noticeable, is happening all the same and over time can be felt.

The Power of Positive Nitrogen Balance: Fueling Muscle Growth and Recovery

Nitrogen is an essential component of amino acids, the building blocks of proteins. When our body is in a state of positive nitrogen balance, it means we are consuming more nitrogen than we are excreting. This surplus of nitrogen allows the body to retain and utilize more protein for various processes, including muscle repair and growth.

Muscle growth occurs when the rate of protein synthesis exceeds the rate of protein breakdown in the body. A positive nitrogen balance provides the necessary foundation for this process by ensuring an abundant supply of amino acids for protein synthesis. When our body has a positive nitrogen balance, it signifies that we have enough dietary protein to support muscle repair and growth.

When it comes to building muscle, most people think of protein first. But did you know that it's not just the protein itself that's important, but the specific amino acids that make up that protein? These amino acids are the building blocks of protein, and some of them are considered "essential" because our bodies can't produce them on their own.

The 9 essential amino acids are: histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine. These amino acids cannot be synthesized by the body and must be obtained through the diet - with either whole food or supplementation.
