    I usually do some form of carnitine before a run. BCAAs and Magnesium afterwards.

    BCAAs would also probably be beneficial before a run to help maintain your lean mass.

    thanks,
    You're 17; you do NOT need any supplements (aside from the staples)!

    Recomping is definitely possible. It is slow and achieved through the right manipulation of your DIET for YOU.

    If you're going to run in the gym, then just make sure that you don't run for longer than 30-40 minutes (since you start becoming catabolic after ~30 minutes of running) and that you have proper post-training nutrition.

    At 17, just cut out all sugar drinks and juice, cut out fried foods and fast foods, and run regularly. You could do bcaa's, but IMO the catabolism of exercise is greatly overstated, if you have overall good nutrition.

    Listen to Rosie. As a Commander in the Army I have trained hundreds of guys on this exact thing. You are young, get your diet in order. If you are serious about this posting, give an example diet. Also include how much fastfood you eat and soft drinks you consume. Be honest. Then post your normal run regime as well as any muscle training you do. If you want specific help, give specific details. People here are more then willing to help a guy out.

    There is scientific literature proving creatine to enhance an athletes endurance. A lot of the studies were done on running.

    Pure creatine monohydrate.

    thanks,

    ALCAR (2 grams pre-run) plus Choline (750 mg pre-run) will help- cheap and very effective

    Have either some BCAAs or a protein shake with simple sugars (DON'T cut out simple sugars; they have their place in training nutrition) as soon as soon as possible after your run. An hour later have a full meal with protein and complex and fibrous carbohydrates.

    The only supplements I recommend for you are:
    * Creatine
    * Multivitamin
    * Good Fats (you can get all of your fat intake form your diet if you eat the right foods, but sometimes supplementing with this can be useful, since most people do not get the right type of fat from their diet)
    * Protein Powder (you can get all of your protein requirements from your diet, though; this is more for convenience and post-training nutrition)
    * BCAAS (many protein powders have them in, though, so if you have one that does, there is no need for a separate BCAA supplement)

    You don't need preworkout or NO products, but you SHOULD be using creatine if you are lifting, IMO.

    You don't need to eat anything before you train; I never do. However, you may want to have some BCAAs to aid with preventing catabolism.

    As for your meals before dinner, have usual meals, like protein and carbohydrates and fat.
    A few examples:
    * Peanut butter and something else
    * Cottage cheese and oats or mixed berries
    * Nuts (i.e. almonds, walnuts, peanuts, etc.)
    * Meal replacement (but do not make this a habit (it should only be a convenience thing, if you say run out of time to prepare something or something unexpected happens and you can't eat properly); real food is better every time)

    Do NOT cut the fat from your diet; you NEED it. Learn the difference between good and bad fats and have good fats with minimal bad fats.

    No worries.

    Some good sources of good fats are:
    * Nuts and seeds
    * Peanut butter
    * Fish (especially salmon)
    * Flaxseed oil
    * Hempseed oil
    * Olive oil

    Thanks. That's what I'm here for (although people should do their own research first before asking anything IMO).
