So I began taking Advocare products in January 2010 as I began training hard for the CrossFit games. What did I take? Pretty much everything.
Night Time Recovery
An 7 months later I was competing at the 2010 CrossFit Games. I began thinking about my supplement routine the Monday after the games, and decided to experiment. I decided to cut them out completely, and guess what happened….NOTHING! I didn’t lose energy, I didn’t lose weight and my wods weren’t effected.
And in the three months since dropping supplements I have relied on food and vitamins to get what I need. And only 3 weeks into training with Ty at the Gorilla Pit I have added 20lbs to my snatch, 20lbs to my deadlift, and I pulled a 300lb sumo deadlift today. I’m working hard than ever before, and making big gains without an ounce of supplementation.
I do still enjoy a spark or rehydrate sometimes, but that’s all I take, and it’s not a daily basis.
So I got what I thought I needed from Advocare at the time, but I’ve since decided that I don’t need Advocare to get my best performance. Not saying I would never use their products, just not right now. We all live, we learn and use/do what we need to at the time. You have to decide for yourself what you want/need to do.
