I think it’s safe to say that this year has been one CRAZY year, but in the midst of all the madness, I’ve had the chance to use some amazing supplements along the way. I would say that this has been a year of experimenting with supplements, hoping to find some that I’m 100% confident will work so that I can recommend them to my family, friends, and all of the people that I coach. So, out of all the supplements that I’ve used, here are my Top Supplements of 2010!
(1) Shakeology. I was introduced to Shakeology back in January of last year, and since that time I have used Shakeology every single day! Shakeology is a meal replacement, but more more than that because it contains so many healthy benefits. In my first month of using Shakeology, I lost an extra 10 lbs, but my fiance Melinda ended up losing 25 lbs! Once we understood the value and KNEW it worked, we started recommending it to all of our friends, family, and the people that we coach. My dad lost 35 lbs, mom 10 lbs, sister 25 lbs, and her husband lost 35 lbs from using Shakeology as a meal replacement every single day. We even had a good friend of ours lose 100 lbs in just 4 months from using it, which is amazing! On top of the weight loss that everyone experienced, we have all seen an increase in energy and just feel “healthier” overall because of it. Shakeology is BY FAR the best supplement that I have used, and the one I recommend the most, and that’s why it’s the #1 top supplement of 2010! Make sure you check out my Shakeology Review!
(2) P90X Recovery Formula. I didn’t truly understand the importance of using a post-workout recovery supplement until this year, and after experimenting with many different supplements, the one that has been most beneficial is the P90X Recovery Formula. If you’re not using a post-workout recovery supplement, you’re not receiving full benefits from your workout! Why? When you work out, you use up your glycogen stores, and when you use a recovery drink like the P90X Recovery Formula, you replenish those glycogen stores, while at the same time the carbohydrates transport protein, creatine, glutamine, and arginine into the muscle cells, helping them recovery and develop quicker. A recovery drink is a MUST, and the best one that I’ve come across is the P90X Recovery Formula. Check out my Recovery Drink Review!
(3) Optimum Nutrition 100% Gold Standard Whey Protein. I’ve been experimenting with different whey proteins for MANY years, and the one that I like best in the ON 100% Gold Standard. Many different brands of whey make me feel bloated, but I don’t experience that with ON. Plus, I seem to get the most results from it and it tastes great as well. That’s why it’s the top whey protein!
(4) Jack3d. I have been going back and forth about which pre-workout supplement was better, Jack3d or 1.M.R., and after really thinking about it, I think that Jack3d is better. I have been using 1.M.R. again for the past month, and I’m really starting to not like the crash that I experience afterwards. I feel great during the workout, have a ton of energy, but the crash is terrible. Plus, I don’t stop sweating after the workout! With Jack3d, I don’t experience the crash, and it still gives me a great boost for my workout. That’s why Jack3d is my top pre-workout supplement of 2010! (Update 2/15/13- After doing more research on Jack3d and the controversial ingredient, I stopped taking Jack3d a few years ago because of the risk of the ingredient being dangerous and I can no longer recommend it. For the past few years I have been using a pre-workout supplement called E&E, which is made by Beachbody.)
