Caffeine - 200mg

Protein (blend of whey and casein is superior to just whey) mixed in water - 20g
Quick absorbing carbohydrate - 30-40g

Creatine monohydrate - 5g
Beta-Alanine - 3-6g

Do the above and you are maxing out your supplement game (of a non-hormonal nature)

If you want reasons for each let me know.
Great, concise, advice, Chris. Do you adjust those recommendations for women? I'm working with a 150 lb female CrossFitter and presumably she would need less protein than me (a 225# male), though I'm not sure if there is some other consideration, like the under/over 50 you were talking about.

And do you still use the same creatine and beta-alanine recommendations for women?

Thanks, Chris!
