COACH MIKE’S TAKE ON SUPPLEMENTS
No supplements necessary if you regularly eat healthy, well balanced meals, sustainably sourced from quality farms with nutrient rich soils and feeding practices. Today, soil depletion is a real thing, and it is becoming harder and harder to find such sources, so many folks rely on supplements to fill in the micronutrient gaps.
Personally, just to make sure, I take a daily multivitamin and fish oil (Omega-3), along with electrolytes magnesium, sodium and potassium in my water. I’ll also add 2-3 protein shakes to get the protein count up, and occasional scoops of probiotics and microgreens to cover those pizza nights when I’m not getting enough vegetables. Here’s a complete list of products we recommend at GBAR3….
Driven Nutrition PreWOD contains beta-alanine to boost capacity to build lean muscle mass at peak intensity, citrulline malate to supercharge endurance and fight fatigue by improving blood flow to reduce burnout and soreness. Caffeine improves muscle firing and delays fatigue.Driven Creatine
