Maximize Workouts with FirstString


by dotFIT experts

FirstString™ is the perfect pre- and post-exercise meal. It contains the ideal blend of carbohydrates, protein and fat needed to

  • Maximize workouts
  • Increase strength or size
  • Refuel muscle energy stores  
  • Enhance performance and competition

In addition, this formula meets the NCAA guidelines for college athletes and now has the highly prized "Certified for Sport™" seal of approval from NSF.


Why take this product?

dotFIT™ FirstString makes it easy for all athletes to take advantage of various “metabolic windows” throughout the day. During these windows, your muscle cells become highly receptive to those nutrients that are needed to maximize recovery, increase protein synthesis and improve overall training quality and performance.

Proper timing and amounts of nutrients can trigger a hormonal state that can reduce muscle damage while increasing muscle building. The ideal hormonal environment for recovery and muscle building is created when carbohydrates, proteins and fats are supplied in proper ratios, forms and at specific times before and after training. This product delivers these nutrients in the amounts that have been shown in numerous research studies to enhance training results. dotFIT FirstString takes the guesswork out of pre- and post-training meal planning for all youth and college athletes.
