Re: Recovery supplements

Endurox: http://www.accelsport.com/product-info/EnduroxR4.html (WFS)

I also take Accelerade during my workouts. Used both of these throughout my college swimming career and haven't stopped. If I miss out on them one day, I feel awful the next. Only problem is that accelerade has a lot of fructose, so if you have a weak stomach, watch out. Fructose + WOD = Pukey...

Re: Recovery supplements

ZMA, fish oil, more protein (i don't use shakes).

BCAAs peri-workout personally make a clear difference for me but I haven't taken anything other than the above in a long while.

Re: Recovery supplements

I would endorse Endurox and their accelgel. I used it all through my pipeline training and I know it made a difference. Thats all I would ever take. I don't take it now but in the next few months due to a seriously increased physical work load, on top of CF, I can see it happening.

Re: Recovery supplements

ETS from Atlarge. It's basically microlactin (a raw milk extract). Side effect is really sound sleep. I'd use it in a second again, except I snore on it, and the wifey can't sleep.

Re: Recovery supplements

ZMA and Fish Oil. And moderating my diet intelligently.

Fish oil is at about 4g/day of the core good stuff, taken half morning and half evening. ZMA I take in the morning and haven't noticed any change in effect from taking it in the evening, but now my girlfriend actually gets to sleep too.

Re: Recovery supplements

I've always thought BCAAs were a gimmick, much like the rest of the supplement industry. Can someone explain to me why you would need BCAAs as opposed to straight up protein from a natural food source?

Re: Recovery supplements

hey

have any of you heard of BounceBack by MannaTech?

a friend of mine is trying to sell it to me after I told him about crossfit. he gave me a brochure and a dvd. the dvd had their chief science officer presenting the product. he's an ex-college wrestler and powerlifter and he said that on this product he lifts more..

the product looks good in the dvd (what doesn't with the right amount of marketing!).

has anyone in the crossfit community tried this product?

i don't really like to take supplements (doing zone-paleo atm).

cheers
carter
