First 3 years I raced only sprint. Best time was 1:30:27. Last year I raced Olympic distance. My best time of the season was 2:41:50. I believe with the right training and support I can reach 2:30 min. I would also like to attempt a half Ironman at the end of 2013 season.
How BRL Sports supplements works for me (User since January 2013)
My name is Dave Panarelli. I have been using EPO-Boost for over a year now and I want to tell you my story and what EPO-Boost has done for me.
I am currently 45 years old and have spent the last 20 years training and teaching the martial arts, which physically has been no easy experience. I am also entering my 4th year racing triathlon. Endurance racing has become a personal quest of mine.
I have a blood disorder called Beta-Thalassemia minor. Thalassemia is a genetic (inherited) blood disorder that has a defective production of hemoglobin, the protein that enables red blood cells to carry oxygen and carbon dioxide. With me, what basically happens is, my red blood cells are smaller in size and the oxygen doesn’t bind as well and therefore appears to leak the O2 levels from the cell. My Dr. has stated I am operating on about 15% less oxygen per cell than a normal red blood cell would carry. So, I am already behind the game when it comes to competing with my fellow age-groupers.
As you know, EPO-Boost works at the cellular level. The all-natural herb Echinacea purpurea is clinically shown to increase Erythropoietin (EPO) production, which is the hormone responsible for stimulating the production of red blood cells. The greater the red blood cell production, the greater the body’s ability to absorb oxygen, which is what gives an athlete the strength and endurance to race and compete in your given sport of choice.
After about 3-4 weeks of taking EPO-Boost, I really started noticing a difference in my abilities. Running is the hardest for me and as I would participate in speed work at the track with my fellow Park City Triathlon Team members, my 400’s and 800 times were starting to get faster. As the summer progressed and training progressed, I decreased my 1600m from 9:00 to 8:10. After recently recovering from knee surgery in December 2011, I am at 8:34 pace for my 1600m. I am on my way to decreasing my 8:10 pace to under 8:00 this season. Now for most people, these times are not that fast. But for me it’s everything. My swim and bike times are decreasing and strength is increasing much faster than ever before when I was not utilizing EPO-Boost. My recovery time is much faster as well. Before it would take me two days to recover after a run. Now I can run after one day’s rest. For me, that is pretty significant. If for the first time in my life, I am able to compete and improve my condition, just think of how EPO-Boost can benefit someone who does not have any O2 deficiencies. I am completely sold on this product and will continue to use it and benefit from continued successes.
