Supplements
 
There is so much conjecture out there...this will work, but that won't. This does this better than that. This celebrity dirtbag supports this brand, that famous douche-monkey supports this brand. That TV broad sponsors this one...blah, blah, blah.

So lets cut the BS. What has worked for you, what hasn't? What did you waste money on, what do you think is so good it should cost twice as much...and on that note...

What are some effective supplements for these purposes:

1. Muscular recovery
2. Joint Recovery
3. Muscle Gain (legal of course...NO ROIDS!!!)
4. Fat Loss

Well personally I use Maximuscle [they sponsor Paul Daley and a few Rugby teams, among others]. I only use Promax and Promax diet though which are purely for cutting weight and is high in Protein. Protein, as im sure you know, is essential for muscle recovery and growth, you need a hell of a lot of it that generally you wont get in your daily diet unless you're eating a ton of eggs and grilled chicken. So the likes of promax covers numbers 1 and 4 there. For joint recovery I'd say just take an ice bath and/or massage, gets rid of that lactic acid that builds up. There's plenty of product though, Mazimuscle do Ache Free and Viper, among others. I'd say if you're going to go on supplements think A. What exactly do I want and B. What brand. I chose Maximuscle cause they're well known and endorsed, any of the more dodgy companies can get past medical boards and you never know whats in their shakes half the time.

1. Glutamine
2. Ice joints down/ibuprofen
3. Protein ie. Fish/Lentils/Beans... low in fat and high in protein.
4. Green tea extract + 2 week cycle of caffeine. Eat 'good' carbs, stay away from 'bad' carbs.

1.) Fighter's Food for breakfast pre-work out. This is what Anderson Silva uses.
2.) Iso Mass Extreme Gainer for post work out shakes. This stuff isn't the best tasting, but it helped me gain 10lbs of lean muscle. Has seven types of creatine, amino acids, 65 grams of protein per intake, and omega fatty acids. Probably one of the best in the market as I've tried many types of whey protein shakes and supplements.

Gaining weight is one thing, but gaining lean muscle mass is extremely tough yet alone to sustain in and to further stimulate your muscles to grow.

Contemplated taking HGH and going on a cycle plenty of times. Suppose this is the most healthiest route to go.

Nutritional deficiency is almost impossible to avoid in these modern times.Dietary supplements and herbal remedies are popular complementary or alternative products for people with arthritis.Nutritional supplements also help boost our immune system. The stronger your immune system, the more resistant your body can be against disease.

I am curious if anyone has any suggestions product wise for joint and muscle recovery. Do you guys use any kind of creams or gels that help reduce pain specifically? I am looking for something that I can apply topically to my skin / joints where I feel pain. I've used Icy Hot in the past, it works okay, but I am look for something more potent to help me not only recover quicker but reduce bruising and joint pain.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Tiger Balm.

Although dietary supplements are regulated by the FDA as foods, they are regulated differently from other foods and from drugs.Supplements can offer added “insurance” that one is meeting daily recommendations of vitamins and minerals needed by the body, especially in those who do not eat a healthy, balanced diet.

Hi I would appreciate some help:

I have begun purchasing protein supplements in Australia, and was hoping someone could help me on how I can ensure quality of product from an online supplements business/brand?

http://www.completeedge.com.au/

This is the business I have purchased from.. Advice please!

Thank - you!

another thing i've used besides tiger balm is arnica cream, helped me recover from a torn bicep tendon quicker than expected, and use it regularly on sore joints and muscles, sometimes a bit hard to find, but really good to use.


hey james.rosales, typically i've found better results from american products than aussie products, i've tried lots of different kinds over the years, and US based products are always better, if you like, send me a PM and i can point you in the right direction.
