Fitness and training supplements are everywhere you turn, so of course it can be confusing to even know where to begin. There are a lot of great products out there (more than just what I recommend below), and there are also a lot of bogus, unhealthy, and very bad products out there. With supplements, a word of caution, you generally get what you pay for, so going the cheapest route will probably never serve you well.
FULL DISCLOSURE: Some products below use Amazon affiliate links. This basically means if you purchase, I get a (very, very small) commission. If I made enough money to cover the cost of hosting this blog for an entire year alone, that would tickle me pink. These products are not listed here as money-makers, but truly as recommended products that I personally use, and think you may love and benefit from too.
My all-time favorite pre-workout
The BEST protein powder on the market—Bowmar Nutrition
Shedding excess water weight
I use Sweet Sweat's waist trimmer during cardio sessions when I need to shed excess water weight. Using a waist trimmer alone will not give you a smaller waist (note: this is NOT a corset and does not fit tightly like a corset does). This is a neoprene wrap that increases heat to the midsection area, resulting in increased sweat production. I would recommend wearing dark colored pants when using this; you will break a serious sweat.
Personal fat burner recommendations
I recommend only using these during the cutting phase of your fitness journey and/or during fitness competition prep. These alone are not magic bullets, but work together with diet and exercise to help shed those last few pounds/inches. You will have to cycle on/off of these to keep your body from getting too adjusted over time.
