I've done it all; wraps, pills, powders, you name it. When I finally decided to nix all of the product crap and go all natural...well that's when I started feeling better and seeing more results. Now obviously there are products out there that definitely work; they don't gain followers by not being effective anyway. In my travels of fitness, I've found a handful of trusty items that I LOVE. Now there are some that you can't use while breastfeeding, but there are some with all natural ingredients that are safe.
My first and all time favorite workout supplement in High Volume by PEScience. I first found this product while picking up some protein on Amazon (Snickerdoodle flavored by PEScience...yes it's amazing). I stumbled across this product, and because of the reviews, I couldn't pass it up. It's all the pump of a pre-workout without the nasty jitters that seemingly last until you crawl into bed that night. I can't handle intense "prickly" pre-workout formulas, so this seemed like a happy medium. AND IT IS. Well first of all there's a cotton candy flavored...enough said. And if that's not enough, this formula goes straight to your brain and creates an unreal focus. Not a hyperactive, jumping everywhere pump up, but it's like your body knows exactly what to do now. And the pump? Forget about it. I loved to use this stuff especially on shoulder and glute days to really see my muscles pop. Who doesn't love a good blood-flowing muscle pump. All I'm saying is try this product, you definitely won't be disappointed. While I'm here talking up PEScience, I'll just go ahead and say that none of their products have ever disappointed (they have great protein flavors!).
My next favorite is Sweet Sweat topical cream. You've probably seen this advertised by fitness models on Instagram and you think they're just trying to get a few bucks. Well you might be right, but at least they're endorsing a DOPE product. I initially tried this product when I got a bunch of free samples of it at my local Gold's Gym. Well, I slathered it all over my body after realizing that it was jam packed with all natural ingredients like acai oil, coconut oil, aloe vera, and other delicious things. So basically the formula is activated when your heart-rate gets pumping through cardio or weight lifting. Don't think you can sit at your desk and that you'll get the results...although it will make you smell delicious. I don't think anything prepared me for the amount of sweat that would come off my body during my workout. It was seriously invigorating. And as long as you also pumping tons of water into your body, this is something that you can use for every workout. And because it increases circulation to certain areas, it's a good product to put on any injured spots like your shoulder or knee. I use it on shin splints and it REALLY makes a difference. I like to put it all over my torso and thighs because those are the spots where I think I could stand to see some changes. Get your sweat onnnnnn.
Sorry if any of that sounds "salesy" but I've had a bunch of people ask me about product that I like, and I would never refer you guys without a sound reasoning why you should try it out!
