    What supplements to take with this training regime


    I also got a very active lifestyle, walk 40 mins to and from school 5 days a week, these sessions are really taking it out of me tbh, has anyone got any recommendations for supplements I could take to help recovery? I also wanna include a weight training day but need some major help with recovery first, I was thinking of not bothering with weight training and going on prime to increase any strength gains made from the arts muay thai certainly seems to help with shoulder strength gains, so anyone got any recommendations for supplements? I don't wanna go messing with my hormones so just non hormonal things please. Thanks

    Agreed with the above. I would also add some Beta-Alanine to the mix.

    I think first and foremost the supplement that would benefit you most are BCAA's.

    Are you taking a multi? EFA's? Those are obviously of great benefit for overall health and well-being purposes. They are cheap and effective. I would also look into ZMA for bedtime/sleep/recovery purposes.

    Unfortunately I have no feedback for you there. I have 2 bottles of Prime that I'm waiting to use for about another month or so as part of a Prime/Stoked/Powerfull stack. I'm definetely looking forward to it.

    There are mixed reviews on both AP and Prime, for some people they seem to do very little and others they work very well. All depends I guess. I can recommend NOS Ether and Purple Wraath stack, I've stacked them with MUCH success.

    HyperTrop-X or HyperPump would be good for pre workout stuff.

    Throw some BCAAs in there, a good protein powder, and some WMS and you'll be good to go.

    I don't think stopping the MA for a month would be beneficial at all honestly...

    You don't have any time to fit weight training into your schedule? Because, working out for a month and then stopping isn't going to help you out at all. You'll make decent gains in strength just as a beginner, but once you drop it and go back to MA, you'll likely go back to where you were as far as strength is concerned....

    Well I just had another idea, if I was to cut MA to 2 per week on the thursday so basically only 1 days MA training then I would weight train on the Saturday/tuesday (I really wanna put on some more strength gains) I just noticed another supplement which I like the look of, dark matter does anyone have any reviews for this? rms80: I found this while looking for wazy maize starch and was wondering whether it would do the job? im really sorry for all the questions but theres so many conflicting things on the net and the people on this forum seem to know there stuff. Any help or suggestions would be great! thanks for all the help already guys

    edit: so just to clarify, the stack im suggesting would be prime+dark matter+casein and BCAA my joints are in pretty good health I take shark cartillidge and have done for a while which I think helps them

    edit2: just found something else that I could find nothing but good reviews for on the net, 'muscle milk' anyone got any thoughts on this? better or worse than dark matter post workout?

    good suggestions on all of the above- forgot to mention the EFAs/multi/anti-ox- cheap way to make sure all your nutritional bases are covered....

    don't really know much about Dark Matter- Nutra sells Kwick Karb- cheap and effective form of WMS....btw don't quit training- try to blend the strength training into your workouts- makes for a more complete athlete.....

    Depending on how you have your current nutritional regimen scheduled a simple EAA product could have dramatic results.
