"It isn't only about the training. Planning both my pre-workout nutrition to maximize my gym performance and post-workout recovery is critical to building lean muscle and getting stronger".
HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR & HPT Athlete KLOIE DOUBLIN
Kloie, a fierce, seventeen year old, drug-free world champion powerlifter, competes in the highly competitive USA Powerlifting federation, a drug-free organization.
Kloie consistently hits the gym...HARD... and busts it out in her grueling training. Her body demands the nutrition required to spend hours lifting, day in and day out. Without it her body can stall her gains. Recovery and rest are essential parts of her strength and conditioning. Most coaches and trainers would argue it is equal or more important than the lifting itself. Recovery must occur before progress can be made.
Training under Jeremy Hartman, owner and head trainer at Hartman Performance Training, Kloie is hard at work preparing to compete in the March 2018 Pro American Powwerlifting Meet at the Arnold Classic in Columbus, Ohio. She will be up against the best female bench pressers in the nation in a body-weight vs. weight lifted competition. Kloie recently benched 237lbs @ 17 years old, at 156lbs body-weight to qualify for this amazing event. She just missed a 248lbs bench press at the 2017 USAPL Raw National Championships in October.
"SSP simplifies my nutrition intake. They make it easy for me to know exactly what I am putting in my body at the most ideal time to build lean muscle and burn fat. With their help, my eating and recovery are perfect, which is especially crucial when training for high-level meets."

PRE-Workout Formula by SSP Nutrition provides safe and natural supplementation to hydrate, enhance energy levels and prevent burning coveted muscle during workouts. The PRE-Workout formula keeps the athlete hydrated to maintain lower body temperatures and postpone fatigue. This results in maximum workout periods with greater intensity. The PRE-Workout formula is loaded with a 5g mega-dose of BCAAs, including 2.5g of leucine. Research has also shown that taking essential amino acids before a workout dramatically increases muscle protein synthesis and anabolism.
The SSP Nutrition’s PRE-Workout Formula offers a sizable dose of leucine, the most important and anabolic amino acid when it comes to building lean muscle. This mega amount of amino acids at the pre-workout stage creates an anabolic/anti-catabolic environment. This sets the stage for a faster recovery by halting cellular breakdown and slowing the breakdown of protein, making it easier to put on new muscle. It helps with: the regulation of blood-sugar levels, the growth of muscle tissue, growth hormone production, wound healing and energy regulation. Leucine is by far, the most anabolic of all BCAAs, proven to prevent muscle protein breakdown and stimulate muscle protein synthesis.
POST-Workout Formula by SSP Nutrition is designed to be taken immediately after physical activity, and is perhaps the most crucial time for your body in regards to supplementation. In fact, research has shown that not utilizing nutrition after a workout leaves your body in worse shape than if you had never even exercised. Using proper nutrition repairs damaged muscles and replenishes muscle glycogen stores. Within this window muscle cells are in an anabolic state, and experts conclusively agree that post-workout nutrients are critical to the day’s nutrition.
In order to increase recovery and repair muscles effectively, the body must synthesize protein, which is best triggered by glycogen replenishment. Many athletes make the mistake of taking protein-heavy supplements immediately after a workout. This is simply ineffective. Without an insulin spike and glycogen replenishment protein synthesis cannot occur. In fact, the most important macronutrient to take immediately after a workout is carbohydrates. Numerous studies have shown that in order to receive the greatest recovery an athlete should take a 3:1 carbohydrate/protein ratio sports drink immediately after a workout.
SSP Nutrition’s POST-Workout Formula immediately scavenges free radicals, repairs muscle cells and enhances growth potential during this short lived “anabolic window.” With yet another 2.5g dose of leucine, the POST restarts the anabolic process, increases insulin levels using chelated chromium to trigger greater protein absorption and shuts down catabolism leading to the highly coveted lean muscle growth!
SSP Nutrition's Lean Muscle Meal Formula is designed for the period where one workout ends and another begins, this is known as the growth phase. During this phase the muscles are in the process of utilizing protein to repair muscle fiber while also replenishing any glycogen not already replaced with the POST-Workout formula. Carbohydrate and protein consumption is important during this time in order to maintain optimal muscle growth. While many people mistake taking a high level of protein immediately after the workout, the growth phase is the time where high protein consumption is best. Taking in a whey/casein based protein blend along with carbohydrates during this phase keeps the muscles in a prolonged anabolic state, restores muscle glycogen, repairs muscle damage, and leads to synthesis of new muscles. The LEAN MUSCLE MEAL -Workout formula is designed to be mixed with water and taken within 1-2 hours after the POST-Workout formula, used as a delicious meal replacement or taken before bed.
Muscles maintain remarkable growth potential long after a workout. The LEAN MUSCLE MEAL Workout formula is a low-calorie, lean muscle stimulator allowing muscles to continue on the anabolic path up until the next workout, enabling the protein synthesis cycle of lean muscle building to continue.
