Yes, apply PR Lotion first before any other products including sunscreen, warming creams, and anti-chafing creams.
Yes, waiting a few minutes before pulling your clothes on over PR Lotion minimizes residue transfer. Lotion residue on clothing washes out.
Yes, apply at least 30 minutes before entering the water.
The original formula of PR Lotion is a thick lotion. After 30 minutes, it has absorbed and you can wash the residue off while maintaining the effectiveness.
Next Generation PR Lotion has a smoother finish and less residue.
Apply up to 2 hours before your workout, giving you plenty of time to apply it in your gearing up routine.
One use supports a 4-6 hour workout. The harder and longer you go, the more PR Lotion your body will need. If convenient, reapply during an all day event. If reapplying isn't possible, your muscles will still feel fresher in the later stages of your event by buffering acid in the hours before.
Yes, reapplying PR Lotion after a workout may further reduce soreness in the days following a workout.
The effect of PR Lotion is proportional to the amount applied so athletes often apply twice 30 minutes apart before a long event and reapply after for added recovery.
Yes, PR Lotion is clean sport compliant and safe for sport. Every batch of PR Lotion is tested by Informed-Sport and Informed-Choice for athletes' reassurance.
No, continue following your existing nutrition and hydration routines.
PR Lotion has competition benefits, but is best as part of your training routine. It's proven to improve muscle efficiency and enhance recovery, which enables increased training capacity. In a study where bicarb was used for eight weeks in high-intensity training, lactate threshold
and performance improved significantly.
Yes, children over 2 years of age may use PR Lotion.
PR Lotion is well tolerated. Do not use if you are allergic to any ingredient listed on the label.

During strenuous exercise, your body produces lactate and acid, together known as lactic acid. Your body buffers acid with its own naturally occurring bicarb until acid is produced faster than your body can clear it. This causes muscle burn and can inhibit performance.
Athletes regularly report that PR Lotion reduces cramping. However, PR Lotion has not been clinically studied on muscle cramps and does not claim to prevent cramps.

We have always planned to develop the best product experience possible, from texture to color to scent, and wanted to address these development plans during this launch.
For the past two years, we’ve worked hard to improve our formula to upgrade every element, including adding a smoother finish and neutral tone, addressing scent, minimizing residue, and creating a product that absorbs faster.
Next Generation PR Lotion went through efficacy and stability testing. The active ingredient and concentration hasn’t changed, so expect the same results as the original formula. You can learn about PR lotion studies here. Every batch of Next Generation PR Lotion is tested for banned substances by Informed-Sport and Informed-Choice for athletes' reassurance as well.

This product is phenomenal! Truly is a game changer. Used it recently for my 12+ Hour Spartan Endurance Race that required me running over 30 miles, climbing up mountains, and doing over 65 obstacle courses. Amp Human was critical in me finishing this race! Will continue using it and telling others about it
I am consistently surprised by how well this stuff works. I use it for all my long rides and am much less sore the following day than I expect to be.
I used this for the first time during a half marathon and absolutely loved it! I had almost no pain in my legs, WAY less than normal, and I was able to run longer because of it. Highly recommend this!
I’ve been so happy with PR Lotion. I can push through hard intervals and race with confidence that I do t have to overreach and burn out early. There are plenty other products that make claims, but PR Lotion has the research and results.
I love this stuff. My legs don't cramp, they aren't sore afterwards, and it's become a pivotal part of my pre-race routine.
I have been using the lotion mainly for my lactic threshold sessions. I get through the workouts with less pain and find that I am able to recover for the next day. The biggest plus is not feeling so much of the burning sensation in my hamstrings as much after high intensity interval runs.
The first two times I used PR lotion, I won two UCI cyclocross races! Of course, it's become a staple part of my training and racing routine since then. Recently, I competed in 4 events at Sea Otter in 3 days - using PR lotion before and after each one. I won the final event and was amazed how well my legs held up for all of the efforts.
