    The safest supplement for a 16 year old

    I have a 16 year old that is beginning weight training. He is taking whey protein as a meal supplement. What is the best pre-workout supplement that would be safe and beneficial for him?

    In my opinion, I'd go with bcaa/beta alanine and maybe glutamine and/or creatine. All of these are organic by nature and nonstimulants, but will still greatly benefit his workouts. Just my 2 cents

    @ 16 his sheer exuberance for the iron and his quest to be the best he could possibly be should be enough of a pre WO.

    Obviously the best answer is food food and more food. But just as I know I was gonna use one no matter what people told me I bet he will too

    Whole food as others have stated. But creatine and whey are great also.

    You should always consult a physician before starting a supplement routine. Creatine is generally ok but talk to the doctor for sure before adding the others.. Good luck

    I think that you should try Creatine as a supplement it will work well with you already taking whey protein so this will be something good to add to your routine. I think this is a safe product to use and can get you great results. Stay away from the hard stuff your too young! Good luck

    honey and rice cakes... i dont get the whole pre work out craze...make sure his diet is in check first with proper meals before you supplement. If your hard headed and have to get a pre work out check out hemovol i think it is from iforce its a non stim. putting a kid on stims is retarded by the way. check his diet.

    BCAA'S if he MUST have a "magical muscle building supplement". Invest in chicken,steak, and egg whites, High protein..always. Most meat contains BCAA's any how. 16 years old, he doesn't need supplements..only food.....As stated above.

    Whey peptides or micro hydrolyzed nutrients are not a meal supplement per say.. Most whey peptide profiles have a half life of around 90 minutes, so, essentially whey protein is temporary until its pee'd out. I would feed him a gram of protein per body pound and plenty of fluids and rest. He's producing a lot of DHEA at his age..

    What Hypo_Glycemic said, whey protein shouldn't be substituted for a meal. After his workout is a must, and maybe even before he goes to bed. He needs to eat more, taking advantage of his young metabolism. At 16, he doesn't need a pre-workout IMO.

    Take the glutimine pre and post workout!!drink enough water 3liters a day. Moreover I suggest to discuss your diet with an expert first.

    Food.
    But if you want a pre-workout, just follow the directions and don't be dumb.

    Despite what many think because we live in a world that wants to make them feel better... The term "natural" is far from natural the way it's being used. If you take creatine- you are not natural. If you take ANY supplement that isn't regular food, your not natural. If it's processed in a lab, your not natural. Period. Scientifically that is. Creatine may be natural occurring but so is test. It is not possible to eat 5-10g of creatine from foods in one day. So again there is nothing natural here. I get what people wanna say- non hormone supplementation. Just thought I'd shed science on the term natural. Here's a good article. http://thinksteroids.com/articles/na...dern-oxymoron/

    I don't think he has a son. Look at his signature. He is here to sell soap.

    I agree with bluejay. If he really wants a small energy boost then have him cycle caffeine. Yes I said cycle. Allow his CNS system to have a rest. Just my .02

    Yeah dude I wouldn't even be pushing the whey protein idea. Preworkout...bread/white rice/lean protein. That will cover preworkout and post workout. Nothing to heavy or fatty or too slow digesting. Fuck the whey protein bro. Unless it's unavoidable for emergencies. He's got the rest of his life to waste his money on that shit. Whey protein-$9 a lb. Chicken breast $2 a lb. I just dropped $70 on shit whey protein at vitamin shoppe and it just went in the toilet. That's on gear. He has to learn when, what, and how much to eat.
