Athlete's Way with Michael Lam

 Michael Lam Herbaland Ambassador and Dragonboat Athlete 

My name is Michael Lam. I have paddled on a competitive dragon boat team “Dreadnought” for 7 years. In 2018 my team competed at the 11th IDBF Club Crew World Championships Szeged, Hungary’s Premier Mixed Grand Final, just 0.011 second shy of the podium.

I took studies at the International Sports Science Association and applied my practices at Steve Nash Sports Club for about a year.

I am now a fitness influencer and I help people get stronger, and lose weight. This sport has taught me a lot about muscle and mind connection.

As an athlete, I must have reliable supplements to help me excel. It is crucial because if you take a supplement that has a banned substance, this could prevent you from competing.

Most people will buy a supplement and not know how to or when to use it for optimum results. I have listed how I use my Herbaland Gummies, feel free to try out any of my stacks!

MORNING STACK

I would always start my morning with a cup of water at room temperature.

       

I take 4 multivitamins before I start my day

Then 6 Plant-Based Omega 3 gummies,

Followed by 8-10 coffee gummies. Living in Vancouver I always rush around and spill coffee on my shirts. This is a great way to get your coffee in without the stain!

I’ve always taken Vitamin D. Unless you’re from a tropical place where you get lots of sun, i’d suggest 3x the recommended serving.

PRE STACK

The pre stack is what I take before training.

 
 
 
 
 

If you are really tired, take 8-12 Energy Plus gummies. I find 12 is the sweet spot for me. I also keep these in the fridge for a refreshing bite!

 

BCAAs help recovery and support muscle growth. I take 16 gummies. A great way to know if you need to take this is if you feel sore.

Before a training session I suggest a light snack and not a full meal. I take 1 pouch Vegan Protein Gummies which contains 10g protein.

 

With the Pure Slim, it works much better when you are “in action” I have this in my “Cut Stack” as well.

POST STACK

These post supplements are great to have to help you sustain yourself until your actual meal.

 
 
 
 
 

Protein is good to have after a workout to support muscle repair and growth, I eat one pouch as a snack to help sustain myself until I get to where I need to go for my actual meal.

I take 8 BCAA gummies and keep these in the car, gym bag and at home.

 

The collagen booster gummies I take for taste and to prevent myself from unhealthy sugars, however they’re good for your skin. 3 per day.

 

I take Fruit & Veg Fiber gummies to increase my fiber 2-4/day
