After watching last night's thrilling qualifying round, needless to say we're more excited than ever to watch the U.S. women's gymnastics dream team dominate in the all-around finals on Tuesday and Thursday. But aside from the jaw-dropping physical prowess of Simone Biles, Gabby Douglas, Aly Raisman, Madison Kocian, and Laurie Hernandez, we as beauty editors also have to wonder what products these incredible athletes use to keep their hair and makeup on lock while high-flying through the air and pushing their bodies to unimaginable limits—not to mention the supplements they knock back to help keep their muscles in top form.

Simone Biles says that she likes to recover from a long day of practice by refueling with one of Core Power's protein-packed shakes.
