Not sure if any of you have heard of the 7.2 Alkaline Diet, here in Iowa it seems to be exploding. A friend of mine reached out to me and wanted me to try a sample of the 7.2 Recovery, I was told that it helps make you feel less sore after training. I train hard and after leg days my legs are extremely sore for about 3-4 days. I was leery of the claims and told her I wasn't interested, she was super nice and let me know that if I ever changed my mind to let her know.
Well then my husbands boss had started taking it, a chiropractor she is friends with was selling it so Kyle got a sample and I decided to try it out.
Enhanced Cellular Hydration:
I only added two of the benefits I was mostly intrigued about. Honestly I was pretty excited to try it out, two pills three times a day, the benefits sounded amazing. I've tried many supplements though and very few give me any true benefits.
This product has done nothing for me, the biggest sell for me was that it takes the lactic acid out of the body while it's being made. We know lactic acid build up is what leads to the soreness. My biggest test was 48 hours after leg day, I lift HEAVY on leg day and it takes about four days for the soreness to go away. Sadly it didn't work for me, I continued taking it and have had the same level of soreness with all of my workouts.
Now again I'm not sure if my "odd" body type is what makes this product not really work for me. Some supplements work for people and not for others. My friend believes in it 100% and swears by it.
This is why it is so important to always get a sample of product, especially when it is something pricier. I do not like to waste my money that I could spend on some new workout gear on supplements that don't work for me :)
Not gonna lie, I was hoping this was a "miracle" pill that would help with soreness. In all actually drinking enough water and stretching are enough for me. I shall continue to walk awkwardly after leg days and do some extra foam rolling!
