Five Supplements Even CrossFitters Should Love

Am I a bad person for stereotyping CrossFitters as being anti-supplementation? I think I’m allowed to joke about this, having been program director at CrossFit Los Angeles for almost eight years. It was my experience that if it didn’t involve fish oil or coconuts that CrossFitters were generally averse to any sort of supplement. And I think a lot of them tell themselves that fish oil isn’t really a supplement. It’s just liquid fish, right? Supplements, on the other hand, are bad and dubious things.

Well, actually supplements can be awesome and helpful thingsYou don’t have to be a meathead to take supplements and many of them are proven to do wonderful things for your health, performance, and recovery. The marketing of bodybuilding supplements has done a lot of damage to the reputation of supplementation in general. But you could say the same about a lot of the anti-CrossFit articles that float around the mainstream media, and yet we know CrossFit ain’t what those people say it is.

So let’s take a look at a few supplements that I think every CrossFitter should consider. These are real things, not fake foods and not some sort of Franken-product. So open up your mind and your mouth for a moment, and see how these can help you become a healthier and better performing athlete.
