    Its depend on person to person, i use it during workout and after along with my creatine and protein. If i didn't had preworkout supplement then i would use it prior to workout as well. I normally take 3-5g per serving.

    I worked at vitamin world for years. The vitamin world brand whey was made in the exact same factory as the higher-end, name brand, proteins. This info is approx 4 years dated. At that time, Vitamin World was buying some of the name brands. What I learned from this experience was to keep it basic and not succumb to label-hype. Not promoting Vitamin World at all, this is just one of prob many instances where the lesser name-brand is the same quality as hyped-up brands. DailyVitamin, Fish Oil, Whey, & Creatine are solid. If you are able to get plenty of protein each day from whole food (hi amino profile sources), one could even skip the whey no problem.

    thats good but its not good to stay on creatine for a long time as with anything. your body becomes immune to its benefits. I like straight mono hydrate myself. there is so much fake crap on the market these days

    Wow this thread came back after a 4 year layoff.
    I stick to very simple supplementation. Protein aside, creatine monohydrate and beta alanine

    To stay ripped all year round while still putting on muscle, I usually keep protein to carbs at a ratio of 4:1. Stay away from sugars except maybe a pinch here and there. My favorite aminos are HEALTHY FIT 10,000 AMINOS. The best out there. Have to crack the pills first so they break down quicker. The best protein is real protein (MEAT, FISH, EGGS,).

    Always make sure your protein intake is high.

    The work with the rest.

    Get the food you eat in order first. It never makes sense to me that people take a protein supplement when their quality of food intake is sub par to begin with.

    well in my opinion, when it comes to supplements i always keep it simple and stick to the basics first and foremost. whey protein, bcaa's, creatine, multi, and glutamine. to me that should always be the base of your supplement arsenal, everything else is just a plus. i've never done casein protein, i just use whey. AAEFX's has all of these great products in many great flavors man. i've been using their products for months now and i love every single one of them. look up their products and see what you think man, their pre-workout product KOTIC is in my opinion the best one i've used thus far. one scoop is more than enough to get you through an entire workout and give you plenty of energy, focus and a great pump.

    1) Beverly Ultra 4 Multi Vitamin (you take 2 tabs 2 times per day or 1 tab 4 ttimes per day)

    2) Vitamin Shoppe 3 Daily

    I also like to supplement with a multi mineral. My favorite is VPX CMZ. It is a chelated mineral complex that should be taken on an empty stomach before bed. It def helps aid in a deep sleep. Recommended dose is 6 caps. I usually go with 3-4 however as I think that is enough, plus going higher makes me a little lethargic when I rise the next day. My 2nd fav mineral complex is Vitamin Shoppes complete Mineral complex. It's a 3 a day as well so it works well with the multi vitamin (Taken Meals 1, 4, & 7)
    I use GNC MegaMan MV.

    I seem to remember something from HS biology class that minerals are needed also to aid in the digestion of the vitamins or certain ones at least.

    Thi is a common misconception. You don't actually replace fat with muscle - the two are separate and one can never become the other.

    Protein helps grow muscle, which in turn increases your metabolism and helps you burn more fat for energy, even while resting.

    I take a multi-v year round and use tuna as one of my main whole food protein sources, so I should be pretty good for the Omega 3's.

    Until you get in about a years worth of serious training the only supps you need are protein, multiv that you take and I suggest getting an Omega 3-6-9 so that your getting everything outside the realm of tuna. Everything else can wait. Spend your hard earned money on more food, youll see great results before adding in any other supps!
