Why I Take Supplements
I’ve been asked this question a million times. My main point of view for this is rather basic. Everyone has a friend that doesn’t train right? They’re considered “normal,” don’t go to the gym, or maybe they do a little yard work. Ultimately, they will probably hurt their lower back bringing home a bag of groceries when they are older. When a person doesn’t train, they end up de-conditioned and weaker, and their body doesn’t require much external nutrition to stay afloat.
That’s not how you want to operate. Even back in the hunter and gatherer days, recovery was based on conditioning and tracking down your food. There was never any external lifting for strength, it was much more about skill.
Now fast-forward and think about what you are demanding from your body. It is not normal. It is still very difficult to meet your nutritional needs purely from food. It’s nearly impossible to get everything that you need from food alone. That is exactly why they are called food supplements.
You eat food and then you supplement on top of it to reach a full recovery from workout to workout, optimizing your performance. At the end of the day, that’s why we do what we do. Whether you’re a powerlifter, crossfitter or bodybuilder, it doesn’t matter. The key is recovery and optimizing your performance.
You are asking your body to do something outside of the ordinary. In a non-drug fashion, I believe that you need to use every aspect in a clean non-PED way to recover the best you can.
