I am training for a competition in 20 weeks.. it's Physique so I don't have to diet as hard as body building. But I need to know what Vitamins I should be taking and what are the best for what I'm doing..
I believe a vitamin is great to take regardless of the goals. Bulking, Cutting, Recomping, etc...
Orange Triad IMO is the best multivitamin with weight lifting and so forth in mind.
What makes you think you need to take any vitamins? If you are eating a balanced diet with fruit/veg then there shouldn't be any need to take additional vitamins.
Lots of people take vitamins but chances are very few people need to bother with the expense of them. I used to be the same and then stopped just over a year ago and haven't had any vitamin deficiency type problems. The only vitamin I do take is vit-D during the Winter as I live in Northern Europe so sunlight is pretty much non-existent here during the Winter.
the vitamins you consume in pill form after factoring in bioavailability don't = near a toxic dose. They still don't when you're adding them to your daily diet, they can only further to help you. you wouldn't encounter vitamin deficiency problems by not taking a multivitamin. It helps to cover those vitamins you don't find in all the foods, or quantities that you need.
I bet the chances are, very few people eat a 100% complete diet.
i could be wrong though.
I think everyone should take a multi. Myself, My wife and my 2 daughters do.
