The NFL Combine is said to be the world’s toughest job interview, and the athletes looking to hear their named called from the stage at New York’s Radio City Music Hall in April need every advantage available to compete at the highest level. At IMG Academy, more than 40 top NFL prospects train six-days-a-week for more than eight hours per day, grinding through a rigorous training regimen as part of the Combine Training program. Each day, they undergo speed and movement training; physical and mental conditioning; and much more. The intense training takes a tremendous toll on their bodies, and the trainees need an edge to help restore their muscles, improve in their next session and maximize their training. That’s where Dymatize supplements come into play.

“We are extremely excited to partner with IMG Academy to provide NFL Combine trainees the Dymatize supplements that will help them perform at the highest level possible on a daily basis,” remarked Greg Venner, President and CEO, Dymatize. “The compact, intense nature of the players’ schedules takes a toll on the players’ bodies, and we are glad to be able to provide the safest and most efficacious supplements throughout their daily routine to optimize training and performance."

Founded in 1994, Dymatize has fueled serious fitness enthusiasts and athletes in more than 50 countries. Their reputation, and the quality of their products is why Dymatize is the primary supplement provider to IMG Academy. Dymatize’s beta alanine; branched chain amino acids (BCAAs); creatine monohydrate; and glutamine may be included in each athlete’s customized supplementation plan prepared by Stephanie Wilson, IMG Academy’s Head of Nutrition. The supplements are carefully selected based on the athlete’s goals to optimize their performance. Pre-workout, they use beta-alanine which delays muscle fatigue and failure, allowing the trainees to go beyond their normal limits, even with only small breaks. They also utilize creatine monohydrate to improve explosive strength and muscle gains. Timed around their workouts for the day, the trainees also grab Dymatize Elite Recoup. This is a branched chain amino acid formula to support muscle gains, but also allows for fast stimulation of protein synthesis and reduced soreness.

The difference between making muscle gains and muscle failure is often having the right supplements at the right time. Dymatize ensures our trainees have everything they need to be in the condition for peak performance. Especially when 7:00 a.m. is just a night's sleep away.
