Our athletes are so lucky to have Alyssa Reau a Registered Dietician support them on their choices of supplements and nutrition. Alyssa owns Willow Health and Performance and helps many athletes in the Ohio area.
Below are her favorite Supplements for Weightlifters. Remember, make your supplement choices depending on your goals and what energy system you’re using in your body. We did a very detailed video where you can find out much more.
All the products are 3rd party tested except for the caffeine. We’ve been unable to find a 3rd party tested caffeine.
*Please keep in mind* – These are general guidelines. Each athlete should work with a Dietitian for more individualized recommendations.
