Ashwagandha may not be the first supplement that comes to mind when you’re planning your cornerstone program. That’s fine, but you’d better plan on adding it to your stack. Why? Ashwagandha is an adaptogen, that’s why. If you’re training as intense as Rich did, you’re placing your body under a ton of physical stress. As an adaptogenic Ayurvedic herb with a long history of use, Ashwagandha can help support healthy stress levels. It can also help you stay in a more anabolic state, improve testosterone availability, and recover faster.
