OXYSTORM® N.O. Explosion -Red Spinach 9% Extract! No Oxalates!

NEW! Barlowe's Herbal Elixirs now proudly offers OXYSTORM® N.O. EXPLOSION, a high potency standardized extract of Red Spinach (Amaranthus Dubius) which contains fifty (50) times the nitrate in Beet Juice and no Oxalates. This product greatly increases N.O. (Nitric Oxide) production, greatly increasing blood flow to all parts of the body! Bottled in Glass! No Stearates! No Fillers! No Junk! The certificate of analysis (COA) of N.O. Explosion is shown above.
OXYSTORM® N.O. EXPLOSION is one of the richest sources of nitrate there is. A patent-pending production process delivers the highest nitrate content ingredient from the leaves of red spinach, 9% or 9000 mg per 100 g, with more than five times the amount of nitrate as beetroot powder and more than 50 times that in beet juice. This product is 100% water-soluble, Oxalate free, sugar free and has a neutral pH. Additionally, it is an excellent source of potassium while being non-GMO and Kosher and Halal certified.
***These vegetable-derived capsules (Vegan, Kosher and Halal certified) are filled on slow speed equipment and only pure, unadulterated herbal extract is contained in the capsules. There are no magnesium stearates, fillers, gelatin, silicates, gluten, corn, wheat, rice, yeast, starch, titanium dioxide, artificial colors, artificial flavors or preservatives. Capsules produced with high speed equipment in herbal and dietary supplement "factories" generally contain several other ingredients, including powdered lubricants called STEARATES (which can greatly diminish an herb or supplement's absorption into the body). Check their labels! Barlowe also bottles his products in glass as he believes chemical vapors can vent from plastic containers and contaminate the contents and that glass is better for the environment.
CAUTION: This extract is generally safe, but it is potent and should be utilized with care. This product is for dietary use. If unexpected side-effects occur, discontinue use immediately! The above statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE: Take two or three capsules an hour before activity without food. Blood levels of N.O. Explosion are highest approximately one hour after ingestion, but it does stay in the bloodstream for up to 8 hours. If taken on a daily basis, take one capsule in the morning and two capsules in the evening. For some people, dosage may need to be increased as results and usage amounts vary based on body type and weight.

May 2019 Workout: Cardio Acceleration

This month I am going to use Cardio Acceleration for my monthly workout. This means I will do a strength exercise with a 30 to 60 second burst instead of rest between sets. 

Bench Press 
60 seconds of jumping jacks.

Oct 31, 2018 - Cardioacceleration refers to doing intervals of cardio (usually 30-60 seconds) in between sets of resistance exercise. So for example, on chest day you would do one set of the bench press. Then instead of sitting on your butt for a full 2-3 minutes doing nothing, you perform 30-60 seconds of cardio.

Todd Bumgardner: Do you have a morning routine? (Steal mine!)

It's common knowledge now-a-days that routine and ritual is super important--so I hope you're already kicking along with a great morning routine that sets you up for a great day. 

One that gets your body moving.

One that starts to get your head on straight.

One that sets you up to be positive and productive.

In the case that you don't, or just to offer you some ideas that you might able to add to your routine, I'm sharing mine. 

Here it is in step-by-step form:

1. Walk down stairs, turn on the water for coffee.

2. Head to the middle of the living room and do my movement routine: Prone 3 Month Breathing, Cat-Cow, 1/2 Kneeling Shoulder CARs, Ankle CARs, Standing Hip CARs

3. Put coffee and water into my aero press and let it brew and drip into my cup. While I'm doing this I do Chin Tucks and Neck CARs

4. 5 minutes of Box Breathing (:05 breath in, hold for :05, :05 breath out, hold for :05)

5. Review my quarterly goals

6. Think about how I want to live out the day ahead of me and set my intent to do so

7. Read for 20 minutes

8. Review my planner for the days meetings, tasks, etc. 

9. Start working

Steps 1-8 take about 30-35 total minutes. And the combination really sets me up for a good day. 

But, if you wanted to stick to the essentials, here's what I'd do:

-The movement routine
-The box Breathing
-The setting the living intentions for the day
-The planner review

That would all take about 10 minutes. 


I think it's worth it to carve out that little sliver of time to set our selves up for a great day. 

Let's play devil's advocate and say we could only pick one. What would I recommend?

God, man, even as I'm writing this I'm thinking about how hard of a decision that is. 

I'd say the movement routine. 

Getting your body moving and feeling good first thing in the morning can really affect your headspace for the rest of the day. If you can't do anything else, get up and move right away. 

When we have routines like this it helps us manage our time and our priorities...and those are two big things that keep us on track and successful as trainers--crafting the careers and the lives that we want. 

You Rule!
