    Supplement Recommendations

    Hello All,

    I use to be a heavy lifter in my mid/late 20's. I fell off the wagon for a couple years with commitments to family, work, etc. I have been back in the gym for a couple months trying to burn some body fat/gain size and definition in an attempt to get back to my old self. I have been going supplement free, but looking for something that will give me a bit of an edge. I use to have and try all the supplements back in the day, but not sure what's currently the go-to product(s). Looking forward to everyone's suggestions/comments. Best, Trevor

    The same things that you did in your late 20's will work now.

    Good luck with your training

    I agree, and will add that supplements are a last 1% thing - not something you should prioritise. Protein powder can be useful if you happen to know that your total protein intake for the day is short. Creatine monohydrate is generally useful for most people. That's about all it's worth mentioning now - or ever really...

    Maybe update your knowledge by looking in the sticky threads on the Nutrition, Workout Programs and Exercises forums.

    I agree with Suffolk... protein powder and creatine is really all you need. Maybe some pre-workout if you need some mind/muscle connection boost.

    I need a pre-workout some days so I would consider that if you need motivation to make it to the gym.

    I concur with suffolkpunch.
    If your going to take supplements creatine and a whey and casein protein are proven.
    Other supplements unless your deficient in something could be a waste of money.
    Eat a good well balanced healthy diet and that will take you a long way.
    You only have to look at strongmen and bodybuilders physiques 80-100 years ago to realize that.
    Many drank milk and ate lots of eggs for protein sources.
    Dont over think it with the supplements.

    I'm not a big supplement guy and try to get as much protein from food as I can, but I do drink a casein shake before bed every night. It keeps me full and stops late-night snacking. I've noticed that the 1-2 times I got home too late to drink the shake I woke up starving.

    what are your goals?

    Supplements are just that-supplements to your diet. As a noob lifter, just eat correctly. Worry about supps later when you establish said goals. Whey, creatine and MAYBE some intraworkout is all you need.

    AMEN to #5. I don't go a day without my fiber (twice daily) and am always encouraging people to incorporate this into their daily regimen.

    Also #6. I started on zma originally because it was hyped up for recovery but tbh I take it for the lucid dreams. Don't even get me started on what it does for libido!

    This is all that's worth taking in my opinion. I take all of these besides psyllium husk and zinc.

    priority as far as supplementation goes would be

    vitamin d3, everyone needs it....EVERYONE unless you spend time in the sun each and every day all year round
    b12

    if you're interested head over to the supplement section, i have a thread that details a years worth of before and after blood work using a natural testosterone booster. it shows you what you can expect.

    i don't think anyone needs it but it's useful if you want to go from average or above average levels to the high normal of the spectrum.
