What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is a constantly varied functional movements based exercise regime performed at relatively high intensity. All CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements, and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more. These are the core movements of life. They move the largest loads the longest distances, so they are ideal for maximizing the amount of work done in the shortest time. Intensity is essential for results and is measurable as work divided by time—or power. The more work you do in less time, or the higher the power output, the more intense the effort. By employing a constantly varied approach to training, functional movements and intensity lead to dramatic gains in fitness.
Here are our top 5 recommended supplements for CrossFit Athletes.
Probably the most important time for athletes is during the 30 minute window after training or competing. During this time your body is flooded with the stress hormone cortisol, your muscles glycogen levels are heavily depleted and your body is in a catabolic state. High levels of cortisol cause your body to go catabolic. This means your muscles are in effect being broken down even after you have ceased training or playing. Failure to halt this catabolism by blunting cortisol release will lead to poor recovery, fatigue, over training and will severely impair your performance going forward.
RecoverEX is a research backed, scientifically engineered recovery formula favoured by top athletes. RecoverEX blunts cortisol release and refuels your muscle glycogen levels fast after training or matches. It also helps repair damaged muscle tissue and helps muscles not only recover faster but grow stronger. Regularly using RecoverEX within 30 minutes of training or matches will not only reduce DOMS (delayed onset muscle Soreness), the aching you experience the day after, but will aid your performance in the future by ensuring repaired muscle tissue regenerates stronger than before. RecoverEX includes research backed amounts of protein, BCAAs, glutamine and fast absorption carbohydrates.

Mass Attack Lean is designed to take the guess work out of supplementation and deliver not only excellent recovery from strenuous exercise but superb gains in explosive strength and power.
