Welcome back to Chat Sh*t Get Fit - Chatting Supplements. We are at seasons end and it's more chaotic than ever. We start by looking at a "functional creamer" that Tom thinks will be the next big thing in CrossFit...We then get into the bulk of the show where we explore some "odds & sods" of the supplement world. Including 

  • Tart Cherry Juice

  • HMB

  • Caffeine Gum + Caffeine Rinse

  • Crocodile Blood...No seriously... Apparently, it helps with DOMS? We'll decide...

So a mental episode that's for sure but even with its jovial facade, we did go into the papers and all the studies mentioned today or ones we've looked at will be linked down below. "Evidence-based" and all that.
