If you aren't doing HIIT, you're missing out. Here’s why?

Well it took me a month to get started again with our blog posts thanks to a 2 week trip to Mexico (Mexico City is quite an interesting place rich in culture, great food and color) and 3 new projects that I am working on, I hope to share the first with you next week!

In this week’s post, I want to share information about the benefits and risks of High Intensity Training from two leaders in endurance coaching, Jason Moore from Elite HRV and Chris Carmichael from CTS Train Right.

Whether you’ve been active or have stepped back and “let life get in the way” of your fitness and workout routine, you can get back into it, if you’re committed. While there was a time when I wasn’t quite as active as I wanted to be, I continued to follow PureClean Performance protocols.

Dietary nitrates make your heart and muscles more efficient. If we consume adequate amounts of dietary nitrates, our body will convert them into a short-lived gas called nitric oxide.

One of nitric oxide’s primary roles is the regulation of the delivery of oxygen to our muscles. They way this works is that it relaxes and opens the blood vessels; this improves blood flow.
