I could use some help with a question.
A buddy (mid-30?s, 6? 180lbs) is getting ready to attend a police academy. He has been working out regularly for several years and has adjusted his program to address the needs of academy life (bodyweight exercises and running) over the last several months. His fitness program is under control as measured against recommended fitness levels (push-ups, pull-ups, sit-ups and running). His diet is well adjusted for macro-nutrients. He takes a multi vitamin and glucosamine daily.
He is concerned about recovery and energy once he starts getting physically abused 2 hours/day 5 days/week for 24 weeks with calisthenics, distance runs, sprints and defensive tactics. Are there any supplements that could help? If you are unfamiliar with PT at an academy consider what you would recommend for an amateur combat athelete (boxer, wrestler,...) in training or during the season.
Thanks in advance.
