    For Noobs - Best Supps to Take

    I decided to start this thread, as I see so many people, especially young people looking for the latest and greatest supplements to build muscle. When I was young I went through these same motions looking for that "super supplement" that would give me the best gains in the gym. I'm going to save all of you some time and hard earned cash.

    First your training and diet must be dialed in. If not, what I am about to say will not help you.

    Also, this is about supplements, not AAS or Prohormones..those are NOT supplements, and SHOULD NOT be used by any newbies to the game.

    Alright, Here we go:

    1. The most anabolic compound you can put in your body is: FOOD. You want to build muscle? You gotta eat more food.

    2. The only supplements that have solid scientific studies behind them for building muscle are:

    Protein Supplements (including BCAAs)
    Creatine Supplements

    Anything else IMO is just hype and B.S. from companies that are out to take your $$$.

    Preworkout supps are OK, but IMO a little caffeine does the same thing for a lot less cash.

    Is that it? Hell yeah that's it! There is no magic pill or special formula that is going to make you into something extraordinary. YOU have to do that! Train Hard, Eat Smart, Be Disciplined and you WILL see results.

    Weight gainer sucks. You are better off spending your money at the grocery store. Real food always trumps supps.

    I've actually heard people recommend muscle juice... it's trash. Weight gainers are pure trash... My big 3 are: Creatine=creapure, Protein=any bulk, Vitamin D=CVS/Drugstore. Done Done Done.

    AAS or Prohormones are for induvidules who want to go past their bodies genetic potential. The best way to manipulate your body is to regulate what you put in it.

    Great info. Just starting to work out again after a serious bout of guillain barre(google it). Kind of embarrassed but ready to get back into some serious shape.

    How about fat burning supplements that don't give you that over energetic feeling? I've taken some fat burners that make me feel over energized and actually give me anxiety. Anyone with the same problems taken a fat loss or fat burning supplement that has not done this to them? Please let me know.

    No, but I think your talking about Fat Gripz and ill tell you that they are a great tool for weight lifters and I highly recomend them. If you ever heard of Captains of Crush grippers, then you might be a grip strength enthusiast or strongman fan. Ive got a good grip literally.

    I started getting extreme anxiety in my mid 20's and could not even drink a soda containing caffeine without getting a panic attack. The solution for my problem? Primordial Performance has a fat loss stack containing CLA, Green Tea Extract ( only 6mgs of caffeine per pill ) and DermaTherm Target. DermaTherm is a topical supplement and gives me zero anxiety but great fat burning results. I used the FLS to shed 25lbs last summer. Fat Loss Stack with DermaTherm, CLA and Green Tea

    It, like fish oil, is the most underrated vitamin/supp that EVERYONE should take. Various dosages depending on who you talk with but 5000iu is enough for 90% of the population to get the full benefits. More for those at risk of things like breast cancer and colon cancer (do some reading).
