The training is relentless.
Day after day.
Workout after workout.
He's stood on the podium before, but he knows if he wants to do it again and defy his limits,
he has to train harder than he ever has before.


"Training for the games, 3 weeks out (21 days), and I won't back off until about that week, Monday. I will probably train pretty hard through the games.

I don't do well tapering. I noticed that last year at Regionals, I tapered way too early for last year's Regionals. My body just doesn't respond well. I start to feel week. So, I don't need as much rest. I don't do well tapering."


Josh Bridges Typical Training Day


"I am doing anywhere from 5-6 workouts a day. I typically do:

  • a couple conditioning pieces - a more organic, Crossfit style of stuff
  • a couple strength components, either olympic lifting, powerlifting.
  • and I try to do at least one straight aerobic-based workout - either just running, or just swimming, or just rowing
…that's typically the day

[In preparation for the Games] You have to implement a few more strongman stuff right now. a lot of stuff with stones, deball, tire flips. I do a lot of that through the off season, but now, I'm even bumping up even more to doing it just about every day…some sort of odd-shaped object every day.

…that's the typical day right now."


"I have solely focused on Crossfit this year since October of last year (2015).

It's all I've had to do.

It's my only job.

My only concern.


So, I feel very good.
I feel healthy.
Less distractions.

Ready to go out and prove myself.
Prove what I am capable of doing.


I am just trying to go in with the least of weakness as possible. Dave's gonna throw whatever he throws at us, I want to be ready for it."



"You know, each day is different. You have to really listen to your body, especially when you're doing the amount of volume I've been doing right now.

Every day is not going to be this day where you crush it. It's not going to be like that every single day.


I do that workout. It felt good. Learn from it.
What did you learn? Where could you have pushed just a little bit more?
Where should you have backed off? Maybe a little different technique in the movement?

I definitely try to analyze that kind of stuff and be better prepared for the next time I train that - to see how I can improve it."



"I really take almost every day and every workout, one-at-a-time. I try not to think too far ahead about 'Ok, I'm going to do this, so I have to back off here…' That is not how you can be at the Games. You have to go out and give 110% at every workout in the Games. There is no sandbagging at the Games. At least, if you want to win it.

I don't believe that.

Everyday, I wake up and I go out to figure out what I'm going to do,
how I'm going to attack it,
and I just go do it.


I try not to think too much about it.
Over thinking the workout can get you caught up in some bad scenarios with, 'Oh, i should do this…I should do that…'...'I paced it too hard…I should have gotten more.'

I try not to do that.

And then you know, you really must listen to your body. I don't have regimented days off. I take a day every 8-10 days. You know if I go out and I feel really bad in the morning, and I am like, 'Man, I should really just back off today."

Sometimes I will.
Sometimes I won't.

I will push through it to see if I can actually get back to feeling good. And, it's all a guessing game, you know? It's not like…it's not like science.

That's what is cool about what Crossfit is doing. It is showing us what our bodies are capable of. And sometimes, you have to push through those mental struggles, and say, 'Yeah, maybe I should take a day off today.'

So that's how I've been trying since October (2015).

Yeah, I feel strong.
I feel healthy.
I feel in shape, fit.

Ready to get out there and start competing.


I am really starting to get antsy now. Training is good, but the competing part is a lot of fun.


I am ready to go."

"My motivation is that it is now or never for me. This is it.

This is dream that's been 15 years in the making.

I've worked too hard for this to be in vain.

I've worked too hard this not to be something that is memorable and special.

I don't ever want to have to look back and wonder 'what if?'

I'm just doing everything I can to put myself in the best position possible to achieve this dream.

I'm willing to take a risk.

I told people before hand that they're going to be see me
in the top three at the Olympic trials or
they're going to see me on crutches up in the stands.

It's all or nothing."

When supplementing with lactate, before your workout, one of the main ingredients in Fuel-5, you switch your body from lactate production to lactate consumption as well as provide additional fuel for your muscles.
Work capacity also increases, one recent study showed a 17% increase in time to exhaustion when supplementing with lactate.



The authors sought to determine the effects of oral lactate consumption on blood bicarbonate (HCO(3)-) levels, pH levels, and performance during high-intensity exercise on a cycle ergometer. Subjects (N = 11) were trained male and female cyclists. Time to exhaustion (TTE) and total work were measured during high-intensity exercise bouts 80 min after the consumption of 120 mg/kg body mass of lactate (L), an equal volume of placebo (PL), or no treatment (NT). Blood HCO(3)- increased significantly after ingestion of lactate (p < .05) but was not affected in PL or NT (p > .05). No changes in pH were observed as a result of treatment. TTE and total work during the performance test increased significantly by 17% in L compared with PL and NT (p = .02). No significant differences in TTE and total work were seen between the PL and NT protocols (p = .85). The authors conclude that consuming 120 mg/kg body mass of lactate increases HCO(3)- levels and increases exercise performance during high-intensity cycling ergometry to exhaustion.

Deloach – Only take if you want to do more reps
After 3 days of being on the product I noticed my quads did not burn as much during for example thrusters or air squats. It really reduces lactic acid and helps me to increase my work capacity. I believe that every single Crossfit Athlete or anyone that does functional training should have this product period...Extreme Endurance has increased my work capacity which allowed me to get stronger and lift longer during the Metcon's.


Phillip
I used to hate going to the gym because I wasn't motivated or energized. Now I love going to the gym after I take my tablets because I know I'm going to have a great workout with lots of energy to fuel the intensity my workouts demand. I'm losing fat and gaining muscle and I feel great!


Anon-
One of the best pretty work supplements in the market right now…


Anon-
I take four capsules with plenty of water thirty minutes before my workouts and I have explosive energy at the gym. My workouts are more intense whether I do cardio or weights or a combination of both.


Spencer –
I feel less fatigued during and after my workouts.


Dororthy –
This product is awesome! I'm a UPS driver and my job is physically demanding along with being outside for 12-14 hours a day. I take it when I start feeling a little tired or when I break to eat, and within 20 minutes I feel a burst of energy like my body just came back to life.


Freddy –
These little guys have been there for me through countless races including marathons, 150-mile bike rides, and an Ironman in the Texas heat…


Marcy-
Seems to work good for my husband. Working out in the heat he was getting cramps in his legs. He has used this product for 4 days now and he says his cramps are gone.


Renault -
I got great pumps from this product! This is one of the few products that I really enjoyed using because it not only provided great pump but worked great with my pre-workout at allowing me to go deeper into sets.


Dennis-
This is a great workout supplement that really helps boost your workouts and gives you maximum energy and gives you the extra power to get you that extra few reps. I started to feel the gains and power about a week and a half after starting to take the product.


Edwin –
If you are looking for an added boost to your workouts without all the jitters look no further. When I received this product I was not taking any other pre-workout supplement. I began taking this product as recommended on the product label. It wasn't until I started my workout that I began to feel the effects of this product. The pump felt during my workouts was awesome.



Leslie –
I genuinely love this product. Xendurance makes the best products out there for endurance activities. They help me on my distance runs and races. This particular product helps prevent cramping


Ivon
I had to bail out of a 100+ mile bike ride last summer due to severe cramping in my hamstrings. I was recommended this product by other cyclists and endurance athletes. Tried it for the first time just this last weekend….56-mile ride, in the early summer heat with some hard core climbing. No hint of cramps. I took the product just before the ride and then during the ride as suggested


Scott
Used this product for about 2 weeks before doing MURPH on Memorial Day. Gotta say I definitely noticed a difference. My gas tank just would not empty. Highly recommend…


Joni –
I was a skeptic, but these things really help. I take one or two before a long run, and I can tell a big difference in my energy level. I carry a couple with me for longer runs to get a little extra boost. I believe a little water helps make these more effective. I will be buying these again and won't run a long run without them.

Athletes are constantly asking what is the best way to help prevent lactic acid build-up. No one who puts in hours of training wants to feel that muscle burn in the middle of an event. We have all felt it. Your mind says to keep working hard, but your muscles reply, "I can't take any more". The lactic acid has caught up and is causing you pain.


What is Lactic Acid and Body Acid?

Every athlete should know about proper pH balance. PH balance is critical to top athletic performance. PH is measured on a 14 point scale. The lower pH value range, such as stomach acid could average between 1.0 to 3.0. A pH value of 7 is neutral. The arterial blood pH value of a healthy human ranges around 7.35 to 7.45, which is slightly alkaline. As our body uses fuel and metabolizes food, we produce acid waste, which is part of the process of energy release from the breakdown of glucose. The body has numerous ways to remove this acid waste or try to neutralize this acid buildup. Our kidneys filter blood and excrete acids through urine. Our lungs release carbon dioxide and we sweat acids out of our skin. We also have built in acid buffers to help neutralize pH imbalances like calcium, hemoglobin and phosphorous to name a few.

Your body's acid concentration increases as you produce lactic acid. Lactic acid is split into lactate (lactate ions) and hydrogen ions. H+ (hydrogen ions) is the acid in lactic acid. Lactate is good and is an extremely fast fuel that is preferred by the heart and muscles during exercise. Lactate is vital for ensuring that your body gets a steady supply of carbohydrates. H+ (hydrogen ions), the other half of lactic acid is not good, especially when the acid concentration exceeds the body's ability to no longer neutralize or flush the waste from your body.


What can be taken to neutralize the H+ or bad lactic acid? What is safe and effective? And can it be proven?

Beta Alanine, found in numerous sports nutrition products, has been the "go to" ingredient for many athletes for years. The belief is it buffers lactic acid. It does not.

Beta-alanine, in itself, is not a buffer. It is a non-essential amino acid. It first must be synthesized to carnosie. Carnosie is the dipeptide that functions as a buffer, not beta-alanine. We call beta alanine the "snail's pace" to buffering acid. It is old technology and it can take up to 4-10 weeks to get in your system.

Extreme Endurance buffers the hydrogen ions (H+) within 48-72 hours. It is a revolutionary new technology to buffer acid and reduce muscle damage. It is not one ingredient that targets the H+ but it is the combination of ingredients and the delivery system that makes this so effective in buffering and also repairing microscopic muscle tears to quicken recovery, reduce muscle soreness and has been clinically proven to work in numerous studies.

Extreme Endurance had it's first third party clinical done on the formula in 2007. Third party means that Extreme Endurance did not know the testing facility. They had no influence over any aspect of the testing other than writing the protocol. This Gold Standard, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 22 elite athletes, published in the Clinical Nutrition Supplements Journal, shows a 10-day usage reduced lactic acid by 15% and increased aerobic threshold by double digits. Hard to believe - but it intrigued the lead researcher to the extent he paid for his own additional study to find out if the longer an athlete stayed on Extreme Endurance, the greater their scores. He confirmed his suspicions.

Testing has not stopped with this one study. Further testing by Xendurance confirmed not only does Extreme Endurance reduce lactic acid by 15%, but it also reduces CK (Creatine Kinease) levels by up to 63.55%. High levels of CK are associated with muscle tears and muscle trauma. Extreme Endurance provides a way to greatly reduce this condition. This study proved that less muscle trauma means less muscle soreness and a much quicker recovery time, which is a game changer in any sport.

The clinical evidence may have you wondering why you haven't heard about Extreme Endurance. If this sports nutrition product is so effect at combating what many athletes work hard to avoid, why haven't more people heard about it?

Many have, but they are not telling you. Why would they? Why tell your competitors that you have the solution for not cramping up at mile 22? Why broadcast that you can swim the world's fastest 100-meter anchor leg and not tighten up and win a Gold medal? Why tell anyone you can play game after game in the World Cup and still have fresh legs? Why don't Cross functional World Champions talk about their use of Extreme Endurance? It is because they like being on top of the podium. Why give your competitors the edge.

Extreme Endurance will start buffering lactic acid within 48-72 hours, not 4-10 weeks. It has no side effects. You do not have to worry about getting a tingling sensation. Your VO2 max will increase. And you might like the price comparisons along with setting new PR's. Extreme Endurance was also the first US sports nutrition product certified drug-free for banned substances by Informed Choice and Informed Sport.


Lastly, you do not need to take any Beta-alanine product if you use Extreme Endurance.

Now do you want to run with a Model-T or a Formula One? Here is the comparison.


Beta Alanine:
1) 4-10 Weeks beta alanine in large dosage necessary for loading (4-6g/day)
2) Side effects like parathesia (tingling). Effects sensory neurons of the skin
3) Buffers acid through increased production muscle carnosine
4) No effects on decreasing muscle trauma or soreness
5) No effects on VO2 max

VS

Extreme Endurance:
1) Works within 48 to 72 hours, not 4 to 10 weeks
2) Reduce muscle soreness
3) Decreases CK levels (muscle trauma).
4) Reduce muscle burn and pain
5) Faster recovery
6) Increases lactate threshold in turn resulting in increased VO2 max
7) NO side effects
