Christina tells us that UMP has solved her sensitive stomach issue – not to mention UMP’s amazing taste. I started using Beverly UMP when I began lifting weights in 2013. I had tried several different brands before that and found that I was not fond of the taste of any, and they all upset my sensitive stomach. Beverly International has been the only product I’ve found that not only tastes amazing, but also gave my stomach ZERO issues!
My all-time favorite meal is Oats ‘n’ UMP, my pre-workout meal. It satisfies my sweet tooth and kills cravings. The perfect high protein meal that keeps me feeling full, and adequately fuels my workout.
OATS ‘N’ UMP: ³⁄₄ cup of oats, add water and microwave for 2 minutes. Let cool for 1 minute and then add Beverly UMP, mix (add more water as needed), then sprinkle chocolate chips, cinnamon, or add peanut butter for a delicious pre workout meal.
After training, I like to blend 1 scoop of Muscle Provider and a banana for the perfect post workout snack to replenish glycogen stores, and restore/repair muscle tissue.
I also like to have a scoop of UMP before bedtime to curb my night time cravings. The casein keeps me full, and aids in muscle recovery as I sleep.
Christina’s husband, Joe has been using Beverly for nearly 16 years. Watching his Dad, Randy working out every day was the impetus for Joe to start working out. “In high school, I was one of those guys who continually wanted to get bigger, faster, and stronger.” Now as a personal trainer with a B.A. in Health and Fitness, Joe continues to strive to improve.
When I am on my strength and mass gaining program, I substitute Muscle Provider for Mass Maker Ultra in the morning, UMP with oatmeal for my pre-workout meal, 15-20 Ultra 40 tablets daily and 1 scoop of Creatine Select before and after my workout.
Training is five days of weight lifting, one day of active rest (hiking, kayaking, etc.) and one day of total rest. Lifting tips: When lifting heavy with low reps, give yourself 2-3 minutes or more rest between sets. For light weight and high reps give 45-60 seconds rest between sets.
Here’s his typical daily meal plan:
Meal #1: 2 scoops of Muscle Provider and a serving of greens in a shake
Meal #2: 1 and a half cups of oatmeal, a scoop of chocolate UMP, one sliced banana
Meal #3: 8oz grilled chicken, 1 cup brown rice, half cup of shredded cheese, and 1 cup spinach.
Meal #4: 8oz lean ground beef, baked potato, and 1 cup spinach
Meal #5: 1 scoop of chocolate UMP, 1 cup Greek yogurt or cottage cheese.
