Hi, basically i have trained MMA for a year, but went off to uni in september 09. Since then i have been pretty lazy, could not find a MMA gym here so have worked out lightly. In May i get back home, and want to regain some of my mass i have lost over the 8 months of lazyness.

My mate recommended to me Cellmass for creatine, synthysis 6 for protein and no-xplode as a workout booster.

Can anyone tell me if this would work? I don't want to waste my money on supplements that have little chance of working.

I am 6ft 1, 170 lbs at the moment, but want to gain a good 15 lbs in 3 months. I will be going to the gym 4 times a week and MMA training twice.

No-xplode seems to contain creatine, so if you're going to take it you should skip the Cellmass creatine.

I recommend Maximuscle, they have quite a few creatine formulas. Personally I use promax and I find it quite good. None of those shakes taste great either but I find promax relatively easy to drink. The best way to get any nutrition though is straight from the source, so if its creatine you want then meat's your best option, but you'd need to eat quite a lof it. Check out this page: click that's got some good info on nutrition. If youre wondering whether it will work then yeah, it certainly will. Loads of guys I know would often take creatine for rugby training and gain some serious mass, the only problem is that you'd want to keep working out strong, cause I've seen some dudes turn into complete puds after taking creatine and then stopping training.

That'll cost way more than you need to spend creatine monohydrate is all you need for creatine all those brands that claim to add a bunch of extras to give you ten pounds in two weeks is a bunch of bs. For pre workout i've used no xplode, jetfuse, whiteflood, jack3d, and i'm on reps right now cause i'm short on money. Jack3d was by far the best white flood in second. no xplode keeps the illusion of a good pump because of the creatine in it so you swell up with the water and get a nice good bloat from it. this is something many people mistake as a good pump.

Most important supplements
Whey or casein protein (casein is a slow digesting protein many like to take it before they go to sleep because it digests for around 5 hours).

EFA's which are essential fat acids- such as fish oil, and flax seed.

Amino acids even if your protein says it has amino acids i would still get something to add bcaa's.

If you want a pre workout i'd definitely go with Jack3d or white flood NO product

Creatine mono which is also much more affordable

Glutamine which is a very important amino acid

I keep it real
