New Normal Within COVID-19 Times

Tough Mudder UAE COVID 19

 

New Normal Within COVID-19 Times

None of us could ever imagine life as it is now when the last Tough Mudder event took place. But that’s what life is, it is ever-changing and full of new challenges and surprises. One of these is the global pandemic caused by COVID-19. All of us in the UAE have now started adjusting with the “new normal” way of living during this pandemic.

 

We are still navigating uncertainty, but many previously placed restrictions have now been relaxed. However, this does not mean we can go back to being as carefree as we were before the pandemic. We need to remember to take all necessary precautions to protect ourselves as well as others, so that we can stay safe and healthy. After all, the Tough Mudder event is coming up in November and you have to keep yourself healthy, fit and able enough to smash the obstacles.

 

During the Tough Mudder event, please remember to:

  • Social distance – Keep a distance of at least 2 meters
  • Wear your mask at all times (masks can be lowered during strenuous exercise – depending on the individual’s fitness levels)
  • Wash or sanitise your hands often
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Pay attention to, and adhere to, all informational signage at the event.
  • Be patient and understanding with our staff as they carry out the necessary processes, procedures and checks during the event.

 

If you feel unwell, please do not take part in the activities and notify a member of staff immediately. This may prevent your health worsening, as well as infection to others.

 

We are yet to fully adapt to the changes and challenges that the pandemic has brought upon us. Remember – we are all responsible.

 

Keeping Your Nutrition On Point

Tough Mudder Nutrition

 

Keeping Your Nutrition On Point

When you’re in training, whether it be for a marathon, your sport, or the Tough Mudder Virtual challenge – nutrition is key.

 

You can hit the gym or the pavement like no other, but you’re not going to reap the rewards unless your nutrition is on point. Not only will your performance be lacking, but you won’t be able to build the same muscle or endurance you would if you were staying on track with your diet.

 

What you put into your body is directly reflected in your output during your workouts. Carving out a daily regimen for your nutrition can make all the difference – plan your meals and plan your supplements around when you work out.

 

Here’s our tips for before, during and after your workout to keep you on top of your game.
 

Pre-Workout

In order to top-up muscle glycogen stores and ensure an adequate blood sugar level try to have a small carbohydrate-rich meal an hour before training. For an extra boost to get you in the zone give Vapor1 a try – one of our most powerful, single scoop pre-workouts with clinically studied key ingredients designed to help push you through the toughest parts of your training.

 

During

With physical exercise, it is always important to stay hydrated to ensure you are replacing any lost fluids through sweat. Also, to aid muscle performance and recovery during and after training you can supplement with BCAAs such as our Amino Build Next Gen.

 

Post-Workout

Upon finishing your workout, fueling yourself to repair your muscles and help them grow is critical. Make sure you load up with protein after a tough training session, so your body reaps the rewards of all the hard work you put in. After a workout, we like to reach for a protein shake because it’s quick, easy and can be enjoyed on the go. Try out Nitro-Tech 100% Whey Gold – its high quality protein blend supports recovery and helps build more muscle.

 

Keeping your nutrition on point is key for success in any form of training. If you’re currently participating in the Tough Mudder Virtual – good luck from the MuscleTech team!

What is Tough Mudder Virtual?

Tough Mudder Virtual is a new addition to the Tough Mudder UAE event series. This is a 10-day challenge that can be done anywhere – at home, in the gym, in the park, even at work with your colleagues.

 

You can enter for free, or upgrade to a VIP ticket which will get you a cool finisher t-shirt and Tough Mudder face mask to match, a unique discount code for upcoming Tough Mudder events, as well as goodies from our sponsors.

 

Each day will present you with three challenges; a run, a workout, and a ‘mental’ challenge. Details of the daily challenges are a closely guarded secret, so you’ll have no idea what the length of the run is, what the workout involves, or what mental challenge awaits you until you’ve completed all tasks from the previous day. You have to complete all three in order to unlock the next day of challenges.

Coconut is a superfood that has been used by women all over the world either for cooking or applying directly to the skin or hair. Not only is Coconut Oil a phenomenal body moisturizer, but it is also known for its anti-oxidant properties, and therefore it has been used to treat various skin issues such as Eczema, and Dermatitis. Palmer’s has extracted all the goodness in this fatty acid to offer you our new Anti-Oxidant Coconut Firming products:

 

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula Anti-Oxidant Firming Lotion

The raw natural ingredients of this lotion are made of ethically and sustainably sourced Coconut Oil and Tahitian Monoï, infused with Tiarè flower petals to give a deliciously lavish moisturization to the skin, leaving it plum and pampered. The Coconut Oil keeps the skin hydrated the whole day, while Seaweed Extract helps to ease the fluid retention, thus, making the skin look firmer. The Sweet Almond Oil will further improve the skin’s elasticity and overall tone, and the Caffeine will give it a smoother appearance as it improves the circulation.

 

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula Body Firming Sheet Mask

This concentrated sheet mask is designed for targeted problem areas such as thighs, hips, stomach, upper arms, or buttocks. Forged with Guarana Extract, Capuacu, and Sustainable Fair-Trade Coconut Oil to give your body the hydration it needs through the day while the Capuacu improves the skin’s moisture, elasticity, and hydration.
