What is Critical Reload?

What, when and how much you eat following exercise has a dynamic effect on your training adaptation and muscle recovery. But, not all nutrient combinations work well independently. Critical Reload? is a great tasting, collegiate-compliant, exercise recovery shake based on the latest sports-nutrition research that demonstrates specific pairing of carbohydrates & proteins enhance muscle recovery and restores energy better than consuming each nutrient individually. As a result, Critical Reload's 2:1 carbohydrate & protein blend infuses the muscle with growth promoting proteins and carbohydrates so you can recover faster and kick-start your next workout into high gear!*

What's in Critical Reload?

Critical Reload contains a rapid absorbing protein blend of whey protein concentrate, hydrolyzed whey protein concentrate and milk protein isolate which stimulate muscle protein synthesis (growth & recovery) and prevents muscle breakdown for hours after exercise.* Additionally, Critical Reload contains a complex & simple carbohydrate blend of maltodextrin, fructose and sucrose that quickly optimizes glycogen (energy) replenishment in hard-working muscles thus, speeding recovery and helping to improve performance.*

ONS Performance™ has developed a line of nutritional products specifically designed to meet the nutritional needs of athletes to safely support the energy requirements for sport and exercise, as well as, aid in optimizing recovery from training and competition. ONS Performance™ has become a nutrition standard for high school, college and professional sport team coaches and athletes. ONS Performance's Critical Reload™ and Muscle Shield™ are suitable for collegiate athletics and are permissible under NCAA Bylaw for nutritional supplements. In addition to these contentious compliancy parameters, ONS Performance™ has continued its product safety efforts through the Banned Substance Control Group (BSCG) certification program. This certification requires our company to sample each manufactured batch of Critical Reload for potentially harmful and banned substances that can compromise health, safety and sports eligibility. If you want to excel in sports, then train hard often, eat the right foods, and choose ONS Performance™ nutritional products to support your diet and performance goals.

"As a collegiate strength coach, I've seen my share of hyped-up nutritional products. When looking for a supplement to provide to 400 athletes, I needed a product that was NCAA-Compliant, tasted great, was easy to distribute and had a sound nutritional breakdown; Critical Reload was it! Critical Reload's convenient single serve bottles make it perfect for athletes to take as a snack between classes, post-workout or mid-competition. Athletes love how Critical Reload mixes easily and with the single serve bottles, there's no clean-up. With the addition of Critical Reload to our program there has been a noticeable difference in the athlete's energy levels and recovery time. ONS customer service has been able to fill any order, big or small. This not only helps our student-athletes receive their supplements on time, but shows how dependable and committed ONS is to their customers. Hands-down, ONS has the best supplement products on the market today!"

"Our football team does not always get the most talent or get the biggest kids, so we are constantly looking for ways to improve our performance. We strength train HARD and condition for razor sharp performance?.until now we have never had the opportunity to provide our young men with exemplary nutritional choices. Your product Critical Reload has given our young men that opportunity. Our team loves the product because of the light and smooth taste and the fact that it is not "heavy" like most protein shakes on the market. As for me, I cannot tell you enough how much I love the product because I know it is certified and tested...I know I am giving my boys the best! I am extremely happy I met Mike (President, ONS) at the Motor City Strength & Conditioning Clinic and cannot thank him enough for the high quality customer service that he and his staff have continued to provide me.
