Johnson is executive producer and presenter of "The Titan Games", which he describes as a "sports competition series for everyday people who are also extraordinary athletes". Thousands upon thousands of people have opted for the privilege of fighting, and we are proud that the Chosen who made the final cut had two Bodybuilding.com ambassadors, Ben Afuvai and Kelsey Horton.

Nordic Naturals Daily Omega with Vitamin D3
Recommended by Chris Lockwood, Ph.D., FACN, Science Editor
Fish oil is one of the best sources of essential omega-3 Fatty acids when consumed in sufficient quantity and on the right. Ratio of EPA to DHA (eicosapentaenoic acid or docosahexaenoic acid). It can be used regularly, it can improve post-workout recovery, support cell health and even help to balance mood and promote healthier skin. The normal dose is a softgel of 640 milligrams, but I take four. Why? The data shows that you actually need about 2.8 grams of EPA plus DHA per day to get the benefits. (With the amount of fish I eat, four softgels put me over the threshold.)
I prefer this product for several reasons. More than 50 published clinical studies have used Nordic Naturals products certified by the seafood sustainability organization, Friend of the Sea. This means adhering to high environmental standards, including manufacturing in a state-of-the-art biofuel-powered, waste-free facility.
In addition, all Nordic Naturals products are not GMO-derived, third-party tested products (I can even get a copy of the Certificate of Analysis for every bottle I buy, and their finish exceeds some of the strictest international standards for purity and freshness

CubeFit TerraMat Standing Desk Mat
Recommended by Nick Collias, Editor-in-Chief  The standing desk is often presented as a revolutionary, fitness-enhancing solution to the evil of the chair. But there is a problem: standing in one place all day is just as stationary as sitting. And another problem: Standing around can still be uncomfortable on the feet, back, upper back – you name it. Yes, standing room burnout is real.
Anti-fatigue floor mats are a great way to make standing more comfortable. However, the CubeFit TerraMat is a great way to improve standing. This textured mat is like a skate park for your feet, with a selection of slopes, bumps and textures on the front, back and sides.
Being much thicker than most mats, you can easily get up when needed. Instead of taking a single stance or posture, you can alternate between them all day, massaging the arches on the hills on either side, or stretching the calves on the wedges and rods on the front and back.
The difference Standing on this mat and standing on a simple cushion pad is day and night. Stand for yourself!
Sports Research Collagen Peptides
Recommended by Kailan Kalina, Editor
Yes, I know collagen peptides are currently in vogue. They'll probably make you look as young and radiant as a Disney princess. I realize that collagen has no magical powers, but I still take it, and here's the reason: I do not use dairy products, so collagen peptides are a great way to get protein quickly and easily.
This collagen powder is not flavored, so I can mix it with coffee or smoothies without realizing that I'm taking it. Anecdotally, I feel differences in joint pain from heavy squats and digestion when I take them. Some research has shown that it can help with aging skin and brittle hair and nails, but the jury is still out. I take it and do not go crazy if it turns out to be true.
American Eagle Jeggings
Recommended by Shoshanna Cohen, Editor
I'm a big fan of exercise all day, not just in the gym, so I like that Clothes with a lot of stretch. American Eagle Jeggings allow full mobility for an improvised office squat sesh (Hey, they happen at bodybuilding.com), but they have the structure and weight of a real pair of jeans. These are the perfect jeans for lifters, because they fit your quads, they look good to wear, and you can even train in them when you forget your gym bag.
There is also a wide range of sizes and lengths, from 00 extra short to 20 long, to accommodate both the thickest thighs and the smallest. They basically do everything that sporty jeans have to offer, but they are less expensive and you can go to the store and try on them.
