Rate my Supps please!!!
i am a newbie so i think i have mangaed to weed through the bull**** but I want to make sure. I been bodybuilding for about 6 months and here is what i have it narrowed down too:
Optimium Whey: Good Bcaa count and reasonably priced. 3X a day. 1 in morning,1 before workout, 2 scoops post
Body fortress creatine: 5.25G Creatine mono(the tried and true supposedly) Looked at Eas and the label was identical! 1 post and one pre workout.
Optimum Bcaa powder: 1 scoop pre, 1 scoop post. Already bought them before I realized how much the protein has in it.
ZMA by prima Force: Gonna take 2 at night as suggested
Dynamatize multi: 2 a day
Green Tea: 45%egcg, 2 500mg caps
Fish oil: 3 1000MG caps
Milk Thistle: 2 240 mg caps
Caffeine: cup of coffee in morning, and 1 pre workout energy drink.
Basically came to the conclusion that preworkout supps are bull****. Caffeine does the exact same thing. I only drink the caffeine for fat burning and with the green tea makes a seemingly potent combo. What does anyone think bout the Wal mart creatine. Stats seem solid as far as sugars and the delivery. Any suggestions would be helpful on other creatine(ethyl ester?) and anything else. Am loving the results so far and will have pics soon. Thanks!!!! also diet is super clean but I will save that for another post.

Although some contend creatine ethyl ester to work well for them, it has largely been found to be ineffective. A solid alternative to mono is Dicreatine Malate or Creatine Gluconate.

You can pick up a 500g of bulk Beta-Alanine and just add 2g pre and intra-WO for a cheap boost. Not relying on pre-WO supps is going to save you lots of $$

Thank you guys for the response. one question about the creatine. doesn't it need some fast digesting carbs and sugars in order th help with delivery. I thought most of them came with these "delivery" systems built in. I was concerned about the carbs and sugars on the body fortress creatine. To answer a question from earlier it is the regular creatine, not advanced. I looked at advanced and that is why I asked the question about ethyl ester cause it seemed like it has a bunch of **** in it I didn't need. Anyway leaning toward creatine mono in bulk and mixing it with my protein shake unless I need simple sugars and carbs to maximize delivery? thanks again guys for the suggestions.

You could mix mono in with your protein shake if you don't mind a mild graininess. In regards to the delivery system, I hear you're supposed to get 20-40g sugars around 15 minutes after taking creatine mono to enhance its effectiveness, so I just dump mono in with some water and eat some fruit directly ingestion.

i take the milk thistle cause I was an alcoholic before i decided to start bodybuilding and now i'm 3 months clean and i figuired my liver could use some assistance!! So I guess i have only been dedicated for about 3-4mnths. But I have done my homework and thank you guys for the compliments about the supps! one quick question. I bought the BCAA before i really realized how much the prtein came with. Is the amount in the ON whey enough BCAA's or should i continue to buy the powder to supplement. In other words if I pay a little extra for ON prtoein can i save money by not buying the BCAA powder? thanks again guys, really grateful for all the advice.
