  • I was told this stack was ridiculous

    When I first started working out I was really into supplements and wanted to try everything. This is what I ended up with after a few months. People on another bodybuilding site said it was ridiculous. I was still eating 5 meals a day and using a shake for meal 6.



    Was it really all that bad?

      What's so bad about it aside from the Nitrix and ZMA? (looking back I didn't even need those)

        I have no idea why people call it stacking, that's for anabolics only. Protein, vitamins, fish oil and creatine only. A fat burner depending on your goals.

                  This is the idea bro. Ease into, and you will slowly become addicted as the results come. Good luck to you!

                    Hey man, its nice to see some Canadians on the forum. As for the stack, looks solid bro, no matter what some of the negative clowns on this thread might tell ya. You got the basics, sure ya got a couple things that aren't really neccessary, but im sure they do more good then not being there still. Maybe switch one of those tubs for casein protein which you can take before bed to keep in an anabolic state. Remember tho, food is a real supplement, nothing works better then eating proper nutrition and alot of it!!!! take food over supplements anyday.

                    One more thing, i have used the same cheap ass creatine man!!!but dont knock it guys , it actually works well!! train hard, eat big!

                      I always choose food over supplements for my protein except after working out and my last meal. I'm very fond of beef patties with a small bit of bbq sauce and a big fan of blade steaks. I love chicken too. Not really all that big on tuna but I do like cod and halibut. Big on eggs, love turkey bacon, love whole wheat bread. I basically like everything except tomatoes, oatmeal, and I haven't tried cottage cheese yet.

                        The reason that people told you that the supplements that you were taking was rediculous was becuase you were taking creatin while taking a fat burner. That just doenst make any sense. You are filling your body full of water while the fat burner is trying to take the water/fat out. The protein, fish oil, creatine, and zma would be fine to take together and the fat burner would be ok if you were taking less then the dose and taking it for energy for workouts, however using a fat burner with a creatine is kind of pointless. That is likely what they were getting at man.

                          Ah, okay. I plan on going on a fat burner again so I won't use creatine at the same time.

                            No it's not. I stack my tupperware, plates, dishes, bowls, eating utensils. I stack boxes, papers, stereo equipment.

                            Sheesh. You can stack alot of things. Even that game Jenga. That's just a bunch of wood blocks stacked up...

                              Well the problem that lies within taking creatine and a fat burner at the same time, is just that. It doesnt make any sense. You are basically taking two products that will counteract eachother to an extent. Basically the creatine molecule goes into the muscle cell and draws water in. When the cell expands it is now more capable of growth due to increased protein metabolization (creatien increases igf-1 levels and increases your muscles capacity to not only take more protein in and regenerate itself, but also produce more chemical compounds such as atp which allow you to train harder. ) Now you are taking this along with a fat burner which basically wants to incinerate the fat and water stores that you have in fatty and muscle cells. As you can see, this is highly counter productive because the creatine will be trying to swell your muscle cell, while the fat burner is trying to extract the water. You are basically paying 100 bucks for two supplements that wont do anything or very little for you.
