Visualizing 2000 Calories

Nutrition is tough. We all know eating right is essential to top performance, but at the end of the day, do you know what your fueling plan looks like on a plate?

From bagels to Big Macs, this video from Buzzfeed takes a look at what 2,000 calories really looks like, and it will make you think twice about swinging through the drive thru on the way home!





Of course, we aren't saying that you should totally focus on your calorie intake, but as you look at long-term performance, consider the quality of the calories you consume.

Our pr2 Amino , for example, has 180 calories, but also packs a punch for your recovery with 19g of protein and a powerful blend of vitamins and branched chain aminos.

James Kirkland Prepares With PR2 Amino



"The all-action warrior, with stunning knockout power..."

That's what HBO Boxing called James Kirkland in their preview for what could be one of the greatest boxing matches of the year.

Thanks to his strength and conditioning work with trainer Bay Bay McClinton, Kirkland was able to focus on his training as he prepares to take on Saul "Canelo" Alvarez on May 9, leaving his recovery to us! That's right, the "Mandingo Warrior" pulled in PR2 to help prepare for what some have called the most important fight of his career.

As a professional boxer he's familiar with aches and pains, swelling and bruising, but with PR2 Amino we made sure that Kirkland wouldn't be slowed down by recovery time, in the hopes that the only pain felt would be the pain he dishes out on the ninth.

Some are calling him an underdog, others are saying this is exactly the chance he's been looking for as he comes back strong from a hiatus from the ring, one that he spent totally focused on improving his training, getting in better shape and setting himself up to rise to a new level of his career.

Knowing McClinton, and knowing that Kirkland has been using PR2 Amino to refuel and recover after his workouts, we can't wait to see how he handles "Canelo" next week at Minute Maid Park in Houston.

More information can be found at Golden Boy Promotions, and the if you can't make it to Houston, the fight will air May 9 on HBO Championship Boxing.

Elite Recovery Series: PR2 Amino

Perform, Rehydrate, Recover. These three principles are the key to success as an athlete, and our Elite Recovery Series was formulated to provide the perfect foundation for athletes at every level.

From high school to the pros, there are coaches and trainers pushing athletes to their max, in an effort to elevate each individual’s skill, power and ability to perform their best when the time comes. Understanding that, PR2 Amino was developed specifically to replenish the Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) that these athletes require to outperform their competition.

How?

PR2 Amino blends BCAAs, MSM and a rich vitamin profile that not only assists in protein restoration for muscle recovery, but also enhances the body’s joint recovery capabilities.

By offering this complete approach to recovery and nutrition, we’ve created a post-workout drink that is much more than just another protein shake. Instead, what we offer is an elite recovery solution.

This is the quick rundown:

PR2 Amino Recovery Drink was developed based on scientifically studied BCAAs which have been proven to aid in the body’s recovery from exercise.

It does this by promoting protein synthesis and decreasing the amount of tissue breakdown after strenuous exercise.
