Anywhere you search for what supplements you should buy, its always protein powder, creatine, BCAA’s, NO, or some phytochemical you’ve never heard before. here, here, and here were the top results for a google search of best workout supplements and what do we find, but tubs full of powdered garbage.
Perhaps if we had people who were dedicated to the grind and didn’t eat like shit we wouldn’t have the bloated supp industry we have now.

Whey protein shake for immediate recovery, casein protein shake before bed for slow burning intake to get you through the night, and then another whey + creatine shake before a lift for MAXIMUM bro science official muscle growth.

I can see how easy it is to prey upon a young and naive demographic wanting to get jacked, and it pisses me off. Putting on muscle is already expensive enough when it comes to needing more food for more calorie expenditure and bigger clothes when you start seeing results. (When your thighs are bigger than your waste, every pair of jeans become skinny jeans) The last thing you need to spend your hard earned money on are powdered false claims.

Whey Protein – Everybody needs a FAST burning protein to get to our muscles as QUICKLY as possible to OPTIMALLY build strength and size.

Casein Protein – If you don’t have a SLOW burning protein to keep you going after the fast burning whey protein is gone your work out will go to SHIT!

BCAAs – As if protein wasn’t enough by itself we must break it down to the components that are it individually. Leucine, isoleucine and valine are a far better source for muscle repair and is best if you take them separately on top of your two other protein powders.

Candy Bars Protein Bars – The avid weight lifter is always on the go and needs QUALITY protein such as the estrogenic soy protein crammed full of chocolate indulgence and cookie dough delight. Make sure to sneak one of these babies in between meals to keep up your protein stores.

Creatine is the only supplement worth your while for training.

For any kind of resistance training, most likely it is your ATP energy system that is going to be used. Adenosine triphosphate is the energy compound in your muscles when performing reps. When this energy is used up it loses a phosphate and becomes adenosine diphosphate. This is where creatine comes in.

Creatine comes from all animal flesh in small amounts or can be supplemented via powder form. When ingested it’s stored in a creatine phosphate form. I’m starting to see a connection here.

What creatine does is when ATP stores are depleted it gives the ADP byproduct back another phosphate replenishing our energy stores for more reps. This is what we call intermittent set recovery. With creatine you can train better for longer. Anything else is garbage.

Join the movement.

Peace.
