CB Approved Supplements
Although I run a body transformation coaching company, I inevitably get a lot of questions about nutritional supplements. So, on this page, I outline the ones I may have my clients use at different points in their body transformation process.
First - you need to know that Commando Boxing does not sell supplements...But, I do recommend certain, proven, supplements to my clients based on their specific needs - and those listed below are the ones I have had success with.
For more information about how to use these supplements, consider joining my Commando Boxing program.
And for more information about how to purchase these supplements, contact the company that sells them directly by clicking any of the links below.
If the category of supplements below has a premium supplement and an alternate supplement - the difference is that the premium supplement comes with highly stringent regulations concerning the types of ingredients used in their formulation. They'll usually guarantee things like organic sources - no growth hormone or other hormones, etc... That is not to say that the alternate supplement is any worse and all the ones I recommend are manufactured to a high quality. All listed conform to GMP requirements and you can be assured they contain what they say they contain.
Why choose one over the other?
It really comes down to personal preference. Some people want to ensure only the best of the best gets into their bodies. If that's you, then the premium supplements are your best option, but they come with an associated price tag. If I had an unlimited supply of money - I'd be using them too. For those who want quality, but not necessarily the top of the line brand name, the alternate supplement is available at a much more affordable price. I can't tell you which to choose, but I personally use the alternate supplements listed here and will continue to do so until money is no longer a limitation...
Your body does not store protein. It uses it or it is excreted and/or turned to fat for storage. You have to continually take in protein through your diet to replenish what your body is using to build and repair structures in your body - and protein is the basis of pretty much everything going on. It's important. Most people will get enough by eating right, but on occasion and depending on your physique goals there are reasons to supplement with a good quality protein powder. Notice that I said supplement....a protein powder should never be your sole source of dietary protein.
PREMIUM PROTEIN SUPPLEMENT
ALTERNATE PROTEIN SUPPLEMENT
Unique company where you can mix your own protein formula or use one of theirs. Comes in a variety of flavors and in bulk which helps save on cost. More you order, cheaper it is after shipping. Made of whey protein isolates, it's the purest form of whey and provides 27g of protein per serving. Dissolves easily and doesn't cause upset stomach or gas. Use discount code AAN909 for 5% off your order.
Fatty acids are the basis of fats and oils, and, despite popular belief, are necessary for overall health. These fatty acids are termed "essential" because your body cannot manufacture them by itself. EFA's must come from food or supplemental sources. They are also essential because they are a component of every living cell in the body, and are necessary for rebuilding existing cells and the production of new cells. Studies suggest fish oil supports healthy heart function and joint flexibility.
Vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients are the body's fundamental building blocks. They support a strong foundation and are responsible for our energy levels, performance and vitality. Optimum designed Opti-Men as a complete Nutrient Optimizaton System with over 75 active ingredients in one pill. A good multi acts as insurance against any nutrient deficiencies.
Vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients are the body's fundamental building blocks. Among other things, they contribute to our energy levels, immunity, performance and overall vitality. Opti-Women has been designed as a comprehensive Nutrient Optimization System complete with botanicals, antioxidants, and other gender-focused components. It has 40 active ingredients in one pill and is the perfect insurance policy against nutrient deficiencies.
Each serving supplies a full 5 grams (5000 mg) of 99.9% pure Creapure(tm) brand Creatine Monohydrate. The patented production method used to produce this Creatine yields a tasteless, odorless powder that mixes easily into water or juice and does not readily settle to the bottom. As a result, the gritty taste or texture you may have experienced with other Creatine powders is not associated with this product. A critical component of a short burst energy system - creatine supplementation can help you when you need a couple more seconds of high intensity energy for a more intense and productive workout.
If you have any questions about ordering these supplements, you should click any of the links above and speak directly with the manufacturer. I am not involved in the ordering, payment, or delivery process of any of these. These are simply the supplements I recommend to my clients at various stages of their body transformation.
A FEW NOTES
You don't see your favorite supplement brand in my list...
Rest assured, it isn't a slight against you. Of the thousands of supplement companies out there, the ones above are the ones I use and have achieved success with. I'm not saying there are no other good supplements on the market - there certainly are others that create reputable supplements with quality ingredients and conform to accepted manufacturing processes. If your supplement has been tested independently, follows strict quality control standards, and works for you - then great - use it.
I've chosen these supplements and these companies, because I like how they do business and I'm satisfied that they produce a safe product that I feel comfortable with recommending to my clients - that is all.
These are supplements we MAY use...
Not every person in every situation has to use these supplements and even if they do, their dosages are probably different. These are all the supplements I could possibly suggest that my clients use to overcome plateaus, satisfy deficiencies in their diet, or increase their performance in certain areas. It is not a shopping list of supplements that you should necessarily add to your daily diet.
It's not an exhaustive list...
There are supplements I will recommend that aren't on the list above, but they are specific to individual cases. They are needs based and that is why I have not listed them here.
