Rowdy Gaines - LIMU's World Class Olympic Gold Medalist
I drink LIMU ORIGINAL™ every day; have been for years now. It’s helped me maintain better health, especially on the road. I sleep better, I have more energy and I don’t get worn out from the travel and the crazy schedule. There’s always some in my carry on bag wherever I go.
He warms up for 20 percent of that and kicks for 20 percent of it. The main part of the workout is filled with hard intervals, usually set for the competition distances, sometimes mixing it up to keep from getting bored. The remaining 20 percent is devoted to sprint sets.
Twice a week, he adds weightlifting to the program, right before the pool. This isn’t about bulking up; it’s about strengthening the muscles most important in the water. Which ones are they? All of them.
LIMU LEAN™ is the best protein out there. The shakes are exactly what I need to maintain my workouts and to help me recover. With Lean I’m sure I’m getting the best protein to go seriously hard in the pool and to help with muscle recovery when I’m done.
Rowdy sleeps six to seven hours a night and never takes naps. He isn’t a fanatic about food, but he eats lots of fruit and vegetables and tons of protein. That protein includes LIMU LEAN™, as it’s the highest quality protein available, delivered quickly in a shake he drinks right before his workout. He drinks LIMU ORIGINAL™ every day to maintain optimal health. He’ll even drink a BLU FROG™ right before swimming. He is, after all, powered by LIMU.
There isn’t a nutritionist; there isn’t a personal trainer; there isn’t a life coach. He is his own coach, trainer, support staff. He creates his own workouts, never doing the same one twice. He knows how many laps he’s done, and he counts them in his head. He never leaves a workout early. He never skips a training day. There is one goal: winning.
