    Supplement recomendations sick of the contradicting statements!


    So I have been doing research but I keep getting varying information.

    I am currently taking BPI pump-HD as a preworkout and taking 100% whey gold as a post workout. That is all the supplements I take. I try to eat lots of meat and fruits etc essentially I eat pretty clean. I'm looking into another standard whey protein as I have been having issues getting 200g protein through the day.
    My question is there any other supplements I should/recommended that I take to gain muscle mass? I'm trying to stay relatively lean which is making it take a little longer but that's ok I suppose. Trying to stay natural with everything I take. Any good recommendations would be much appreciated

    creatine monohydrate and beta alanine both have good real proven by science results, and are inexpensive.

    well, i'd say you should get 5g of creatine monohydrate, and 4-5g a day of beta alanine as well. And for best results, the beta alanine particularly needs to be daily, not just workout days.

    beta alanine is a carnosine precursor, theres good science behind its use. If you want I can link to some studies/articles on it

    they pretty much are a last resort rather than a game plan. You're far better off working on eating more calorie dense foods like salmon + peanut butter than adding weight gainers. a majority of them are basically loaded with sugar, which isn't great

    Save your money, you're better off making your own mass gainer shake, that way you can control your macronutrients. Most are full of sugar and fillers.
    Try making your own with a good quality protein, natural peanut butter or almond butter, oats, honey, and whole milk.
    I concur both beta alanine and creatine are proven ingredients, and well worth taking.
    Good luck

    Peace

    nah, that's just being silly. if you can gain 3 clean pounds a month, in 9 more months that's 27lbs. What you'll add more of with weight gainers is more likely fat. Without using steroids, its hard to get above 2 lean pounds a month without adding fat

    Remember this is a lifestyle, not a race. Looking for fast or easy can get you injured or cost you money,
    Keep eating and lifting get adequate rest (very important) and you will grow. One recommendation I would make is to keep an accurate lifting log.
    It can make a dramatic difference in your training intensity and motivation. There are many good logs that you can download for your phone.
    Good luck

    I didn't realize that sounds like I should be happy with 10 lbs then. Enough rest is a issue I have as I have to be up by 6am every morning I find I don't get as much sleep as I probably should. A lifting log is something I really need to start keeping I've just been doing it in my head thus far. I appreciate all of the feedback and recommendations I am getting. Lots of good information without a doubt!
