    Supplement advice!

    Looking for advice on supplements.

    Been back in the gym for 12 weeks, doing 4 days. 2 push days and 2 pull days. Currently taking whey protein, creatine and BCAA’S. Been seeing very good results but now looking to step up every aspect of the training.

    Moving onto a compound workout to focus on strength and mass training.

    Looking for any supplements you would recommend to help supports this. Will be carrying on with protein, BCAA’s and creatine.

    Thanks in advance!

    To be honest, you're pretty well covered with supplements. Have you thought about adding a pre-workout?

    creatine good, whey will be useful to help you hit your macros, no need for BCAA's your diet and the additional whey will cover you. Pre might be a good substitution for the BCAA's if your budget allows it. I'd also look into maybe joint support and make fish oil.

    Might want to pick up a Multi-Vitamin if you don't have one and maybe Fish Oil. I'm not sure on your diet and what vitamins you're all getting but if you ask me, multi-vitamin and fish oil is a good one to have.

    What's your diet look like?

    Hypertrophy is driven by a caloric surplus to TDEE, weight training with progressive volume and getting rest. That's 95%+ of the equation. Any supplements won't make a significant difference in strength and hypertrophy goals.

    Creatine is fine for that extra rep or two to help with driving progressive volume. Protein powder is just powdered food that can be used to help meet your macro if you need the help. Use when convenient and if needed in a given day. BCAAs and free-form amino acids are a waste of money. If you're hitting your macro, which you should be doing if you're using protein powder, you're getting plenty of amino acids including leucine, isoleucine and valine. Agree with above, sub in a pre- if you want that or drop and save your money.

    Your results have little to do with the supplements and mostly to do with your noob gains, diet and training.
