Supplements

i take whey protein right now and that seems to be working well, but idk if one brand is better then another for whey or if i should move to something else, ive been seeing this halo stuff about anobolic acids and stuff and idk if that would be better for me or if i should just stick with whey

I prefer Optium Nutrition Whey... here's a cheap link:

As far as a multi vitamin goes I would just cruise to Vitaminne SHoppe or GNC and ask them... maybe look into some fish oil as well.

body fortress works pretty good and if your on a tight budget for the amount you get its pretty cheap man.

stay away from muscletech's crazy products. Halo does nothing but get you cranked on caffiene. theres a hundred reasons why that and the nano vapor are bad products, but lets just suffice to say that they are not worth what they charge.

whey is a good way to go. if you want to gain muscle and not gain weight in general, then i'd reccomend something with protein isolates as the main source of protein (ideally you should have a blend of isolates, concentrates and caseinates) and something with low calories. if you are trying to gain weight (and muscle) then roll with muscle milk. it tastes good and yes, it does have 6g of sat fat, but the fiber and the mono and poly unsat. fats will more or less negate it. (unless you are very muscular to begin with, expect to get some fat along with your muscle using muscle milk). MM makes a good meal replacement shake.

be sure to check the label and see what the amino acid profiles look like as well. a good muscle building protein will be high in your BCAA's (valine, leucine and isoleucine). Isopure has very high levels of BCAA's and it is an isolate (only really good for immediately before or immediately after a workout... def not a meal replacement protein). it doesnt taste great, but i used it for 3 months and put on about 12 lbs of muscle. (should be noted i wasn't trying to gain more than 15lb).

definitely take a vitamin. the processes involved in anabolic activity involve a wide array of vitamins and minerals and lacking just a little of any one of them can stop the process from moving forward.

other than that, and a well rounded diet consisting LARGELY of dark green veggies, lean proteins and whole grains with moderate amounts of fruits (you need fruit, but a lot of it will do more harm than good), you won't need any supplements. don't believe me? check out uriajah faber... he says he doesnt use supplements and he's hoss.

Avoid muscletech. It's just a hype machine. And their products are overpriced garbage. Anything that sounds out of the ordinary or makes outrageous claims on it that sound too good to be true probably are.

Stay away from Xyience. Very Overpriced as well.

If you are new to the supplement world these are all the basics

Multivitamin
Fish Oil
Whey Protein

I'm too lazy to go into specifics right now but if you want more kick in the gym you could try an NO products like White Flood or some beta alanine.

Things to avoid unless you are over 21 anything related to regulating hormones.

This includes Testosterone Boosters and PH Alternatives like

Methyl 1-D
Halodrol Liquigels
H-Drol
Jungle Warfare
6-0X0
T-Bomb 2
Vitrix
Tirbex
