What is it, what is real and its effectiveness in cycling

Editor's note: Thanks for putting us + watts available to its product + Watt + HMB

The test

We subjected a group of athletes to a series of exercises with and without taking dell'HMB.

Tests were carried out at the beginning of muscular efficiency tests and the end of six weeks of training. For recruitment dell'HMB was considered optimal dose of 38 mg for kg of body weight, but not exceeding, however, the dose of 3 grams for day. For all the athletes have been given a specific diet in order to evaluate a possible weight loss, which could be related or not all'HMB. It was therefore evaluated the performance increase was by the athletes at the end of 6 weeks and how these may have been influenced dall'HMB. It is exactly evaluated, not the individual effects of integration, but how this was and if he could influence, positively or negatively, an athletic three hours. He then listened also to the feelings of the athletes who supplemented their diet with the HBM, not knowing which specific product it was.

How to read data

A, B, C, D are the athletes who were tested without taking the HMB, while E, F, G, H, are the athletes who took HMB. The first value (100 for all) outlines the benefits observed in early tests and the remaining values indicate the performance observed after six weeks and exactly 1 hour after training and after 2 hours of training and after 3 hours of training. In practice the athlete A after six weeks of training was able to improve its performance by 5% over a distance of 3 hours, 4 on the distances of 2 hours, and 3% on the distance of one hour.

The commentary to the test

The HMB has shown its effectiveness, though with some doubts and with the necessary distinctions far, then, are the values of performance gains promised by some companies. First we note that all athletes who have used the HMB, have increased their performance, managing to cover in three hours more miles than they had managed to do six weeks ago. Increased strength and endurance capacity, in addition to improved aerobic capacity, led all athletes face the test of being able to push relations longer hold a higher heart rate and having a higher resistance, the result of reduced acid formation lactic acid. Increases in some cases small, others larger, the result of different basic training and athletic level. Athletes who had less preparation, have been major increases compared to the athletes better prepared technically and "ripe". It was found to reduce the weight due to the intensity of training regime, most felt in those not in great shape. In subjects who supplemented their diet with HMB we see a greater increase in performance, though not so obvious. It's true that 1% at the end of three hours turns into well over a minute ahead, which is something for nothing. However there was no relevant weight loss greater than the previous group, or that could have positive effects dell'HMB think so. The promises resilience seem very small, has equal workload and recovery time have not felt significant differences compared to the previous group. Or rather, the differences, if any, are not so obvious as to say with certainty that it was the HMB to be responsible. Improved but the overall performance, with increased stamina, due to less muscle pain and lactic acid accumulation. For this second group of athletes had better performance, because even after 3 weeks of recruitment of HBM, were able to carry larger workloads, with heart rates higher and reducing production of lactic acid. Have been training more and better, hence resulting in a better final performance. Again athletes to gain more benefit are those who start at a lower preparation, whereas a trained athletes already receive fewer benefits, almost zero.
