Hey guys. Supplements can be crucial towards your everyday workout for some of you. Some aren't as powerful and just give a slight help while others can really do a lot though put your body at risk at the same time. I'd like to know which ones you guys take and what your specifically targetting by taking them. More muscle, a more lean and cut look, or trying to lose weight. Which are you taking and how would you rate their effectiveness with your workout?

Depends on what part of my training.

Whey Protein
Scooby Doo Fizz Vitamins
Creatine-When I first enter training and when I am close to a fight

I use Ultimate Nutrition Muscle Juice whey protein, Omega 3-6-9 and a multivitamin. Ive only been using the whey protein for a few days now, i want to build on some muscle around my torso for protection. Definatly use the omega 3-6-9 its essential for your body to perform well.

Whey protein and multi-vitamins though I really shouldn't take whey protein as i am allergic to dairy products...and I suppose I should take calcium supplements as I dont have any dairy products in my diet. I might go buy some today.

It is useful if you are a weightlifter. But you would be better off just getting a full nights rest and saving your money.

I take Carnitine, and L-glutamine twice a day.

glutamine isn't just for weight lifters. it is for anyone who is training hard. if you push it hard in the gym, glutamine levels will drop big time. glutamine is important for the immune system. you will also use it for the synthesis of muscle proteins. if you deplete glutamine, you'll never recover.

it doesnt have anything to do with weight lifting. glutamine is just an important amino acid. anyone who is pushing hard at the gym will deplete glutamine within the body. it's one of the few supplements that work. i've used it for a while and it always helps me recover.

i own a landscaping business. it's a physical day and i need all the help i can get with recovery.

As far as mulitvitamins go, I recommend MegaMan from GNC.

Ranked in order of importance.

1. Men's One a day Mulit-Vitamin.

2. Glutamine. (Prevents overtraining)

3. Whey Protein Powder. On's brand. Double chocolate flavor

4. EXTRA VITAMIN CALCIUM/MAGNIZIUM/ZINC (increases testosterone production)

5. Green Tea Extract Vitamin (this is the only product that can build muscle and burn fat at the same time) also it makes you think better.

6. ZMA. In the offseason to help me sleep better and get stronger. (Highly recommended to take an hour before bed if you have trouble sleeping, although its purpose is to make you stronger.)

7. Creatine.
