Extreme Endurance Supplement Review
I recently had the privilege of going to an athletes training camp at CrossFit Invictus in San Diego California. At the camp I was coached by many awesome athletes, including Josh Bridges and Camille Leblanc-Bazinet.
One of the many, many tips that I picked up was a sports supplement called Extreme Endurance.
Extreme Endurance is said to reduce the build up of lactic acid in the muscles. Because of this, you can train harder, for longer. Well see..
When you’re usually looking into sports supplement they have crazy claims that aren’t backed by much research, and a lot of the positive effects are caused by the placebo effect. I don’t know about you, but in most cases I’m happy with some placebo effect. Although a product that really works is nice to find.
I knew that I might be on to something when the Extreme Endurance rep told me that I needed to take a baseline workout test before taking the supplement, and then retest 10-14 days later.
They want to show REAL results!
The baseline test that I went with was:
6 minute AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) of:
My result: 7 rounds +0 reps
For the retest I was trying to find a day that pull-ups and burpees would fit into my workout again, but it wasn’t happening. And I couldn’t seem to find time in my schedule to get back into the gym for a two-a-day.
On day 14 of taking Extreme Endurance I decided to retest even if it wasn’t the exact same conditions.
40 minutes prior to the retest I performed:
5 squat clean and jerks @225
4 squat clean and jerks
3 squat clean and jerks
2 squat clean and jerks
1 squat clean and jerk
This workout way brutal! I actually started the retest, and stopped on the first 5 pull-ups because I thought my hands might rip, and retesting wasn’t worth a hand rip.
After finding that I could change my grip, and still perform pull-ups without ripping my hands, I went for the retest.
Completing that mammoth clean and jerk, and pull-up workout, I was able to complete the 6 minutes of pull-ups and burpees with a score of:
My result: 7 rounds +10 reps
At first I was unhappy that I couldn’t even get to 8 rounds, but after reflecting on how hard the clean and jerk/pull-up workout was, doing any additional reps was a HUGE improvement.
Apparently the longer you take Extreme Endurance the better it works. I’m going to keep taking it, and find out!
You take Extreme Endurance in pill form, once in the morning and once at night.
My recommendation is that of you’re an endurance athlete or a CrossFit athlete, you should give Extreme Endurance your own test.
I stopped taking Extreme Endurance for a while. I cannot tell you exactly why, but I stopped. This year when the CrossFit Open rolled around I took a look at what products would help myself and my team (StoneWay CrossFit) perform the best, and recover the fastest. The first product that I thought of was Extreme Endurance.
Going into the CrossFit Open I was wrecked from training so hard. My body was in overtrained mode trying to keep up with all of the workouts. It was at that time that I revisited the Xendurance.com site to read over the benefits of Extreme Endurance. Extreme Endurance is a health supplement. What I mean is that because it alkalizes your body, and disease cannot live in an alkaline environment, it makes you super healthy. This was the perfect product to get me out of my over trained state.
My team went on to make the CrossFit Regional, and get sponsored by Xendurance as our only supplement sponsor. It took a little while, but Extreme Endurance did get me out of my overtrained state, and our team went on to finish 8th in the NorthWest Region in our first ever CrossFit Regional appearance.
I will tell you that Extreme Endurance will from now on, always be apart of my supplement profile. It just works.
