David Law (above) is a research scientist at goop with a BA in Clinical Nutrition from the University of California, Davis, and an MA in Sports Nutrition from the University of Colorado. He spends long days at our product development team and always has time to work. When we were in the office, we’d see him in a few dozen push-ups between meetings – a true story. And he has long been a fan of high-intensity interval training. What has changed with the stay-at-home restrictions: Its location and equipment.
I Really, Really Love the Daily Adrenal Health Support. It was great having something to help me keep me cool and calm throughout the work day. Holy basil and ashwagandha are two of my favorite enhancers to help manage stress. This supplement is designed to be taken daily: I take it in the morning, right after breakfast. *

The multivitamins I have now are my high school genes. I find metabolism target ingredients very attractive, and I love that a multimeter can fill in vitamin gaps my diet may contain. I take the whole pill once after lunch on a full stomach. It’s easier to do it this way – otherwise, I’ll forget it. *

Since I acquired the BOSU balance trainer, it has become an essential part of my abdominal workout regimen. It helps in strengthening the roots and stimulating the stability muscles. The great thing about this is that you can benefit from your body differently than you can when you do these exercises on the ground. I’m taking advantage of it at home while the gym is closed.

For home workouts, I love listening to music on the Powerbeats Bluetooth Earphones to help me stay motivated. The over-ear design makes it safe, so you never have to worry about these headphones falling or sticking out of place. Plus, the sound quality is incredible, and it’s sweatproof. It’s very easy to set it up – it automatically paired with my iPhone.

I am a staunch supporter of Theragun’s Rhythmic Self-Massage. This is my workout recovery tool because it does a great job digging deep into muscle, which is great when you’re sore. I like it so much that I grabbed one for my brother too.

Nerd alert is one of my favorites. It contains an ideal ratio of L-theanine to caffeine, making this a great midday chew. It helps me focus and productivity, even when I’ve been staring at my computer screen all day. *

I always use this foam roller. Because I work at my desk a lot, my lower back tends to be very stiff. So during my breaks, I lay on my back and rotate the lower back for a few minutes to relax a little.
