Should Wrestlers Take Supplements?

I get a lot of questions about supplements...

Whether a wrestler wants to get strong but keep their weight down, gain weight, lose fat etc. they all ask about what the best supplements are...

I always wind up asking the same 2 questions beforeI give an answer...

"What does your training program look like?"
"What does your daily meal plan look like?"

I usually get an answer that suggests an Ok program that needs to be improved, and a meal plan that consistsof crap food and no plan of high-performance eating.

That's usually when I tell them that they are wasting their time and money with supplements...

Supplements simply mean 'in addition to'. If you don'thave a sound eating program that consists of natural foods, with lean protein, fibrous carbohydrates, and unprocessed complex carbohydrates, you're wasting your time.

If you don't have a training system that uses the fuel (food)you put in for energy and repair then you're wastingyour time and money with supplements.

Get your daily training and meal plan systems consistent, then use supplements.

I'll talk about specific supplements next week that can take your wrestling performance up a notch...

Until then, make sure you start today with a proper meal plan and program!
