Default Best Overtraining Supplements

My wife is training for a fitness competition. She has a coach who prescribes workouts and diet; so I have almost no input there. They've gotten great results before, but I'm sure she's over-training. Most days are doubles with one conditioning session (either intervals or steady-state), and one weight training session that reads like it's out of Muscle & Fitness twenty years ago: one or two body parts, six exercises, three sets of each, eight to twelve reps, thirty to sixty seconds rest.

My question is: In addition to encouraging her to sleep as much as possible, what supplements should we have her on? Liquids and powders are preferred; she doesn't do well with pills.

Right now I'm going with fish oil, vitamin D, and looking for a good liquid multivitamin (recommendations welcome).

Thanks in advance for the help.
