With many of our athletes working out twice a day, a pick-me-up is often needed to really crush our goals. We rely on Elite Ops Energy strips to keep us going. They are sublingual strips that contain 100mg of caffeine (think those little Listerine strips but with energy). The best part is the lack of other ingredients so you aren't getting all the sugar and other garbage they put in energy drinks.
