- The Legendary Mike Bridges, 51, Scores Big at Arnold Classic; Says
NutraCea's RiSolubles(R) Helped Him Train Better, Faster -
PHOENIX, March 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NutraCea (OTC Bulletin Board: NTRZ), a world leader in stabilized rice bran (SRB), nutrient research and technology announced today that champion powerlifter Mike Bridges, who set a new International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) world record with a squat lift of 716 pounds in the 198-pound division at the 2008 Arnold Classic held in Columbus, Ohio last week, has credited NutraCea's RiSolubles(R) as the key to his success in training for the event. RiSolubles(R) is a highly nutritious rice-bran-derived nutritional supplement made by NutraCea. Bridges, who is 51 and not a paid spokesperson for the company, calls the product his "secret weapon."
"I've competed in powerlifting events for more than 25 years, and I never felt so fit before entering a competition," said Bridges, who also holds the all-time world record total for the 181-pound weight division set in Dayton, Ohio in 1982. "I typically train for at least 16 weeks, and I nearly did not compete in the Arnold Classic because I only had eight weeks to prepare. However, after adding RiSolubles to my daily training regimen, I was able to achieve peak performance in half the time. I was amazed at my accelerated recovery time and decreased down time. I wasn't sore, which is a big plus when you're training for any competitive event," added Bridges.
"RiSolubles is the most nutrient dense of our portfolio of
rice-bran-based products," said Margie Adelman, Senior Vice President of
NutraCea. "It's made from the water-soluble fraction of stabilized rice
bran, and it's very rich in antioxidants, macro and micro nutrients and
phytonutrients. These nutrients can be delivered effectively in a whole
food matrix, which makes it rapidly available for the body to use to build
lean muscle mass and provide sustained energy f
