IN ADDITION, BY IMPROVING STRENGTH, POWER, POWER ENDURANCE, AEROBIC ENDURANCE, AND SPEED, COMPETITION PERFORMANCE CAN BE ENHANCED. ENHANCING RECOVERY IS ALSO A PRIMARY OBJECTIVE OF COMBAT SPORT ATHLETES. SEVERAL DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS HAVE BEEN DOCUMENTED TO ENHANCE BOTH PERFORMANCE AND RECOVERY. THESE DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS INCLUDE, BUT MAY NOT BE LIMITED TO, CREATINE MONOHYDRATE, β-ALANINE, PROTEIN, BRANCHED-CHAIN AMINO ACIDS, AND CARBOHYDRATES.
