Back to Basics
So I was perusing around the boards and realized how many supplements are out there and how much are BS and what not.
I want to re-build my supplement selection, but don't want to over-do it. Considering I plan on clean bulking...nothing too fancy, what supplements do you guys recommend?
Pre-Workout (I like Jack3d)
and whatever else you think is necessary without going overboard.

Bcaa, a night time protein blend (or use your current protein shake + pb), and maybe some caffeine (at lease for me).

What protein do you recommend? I know it should be isolate, not concentrate..so for price:quality, which is best?

You can make a homemade pwo by combining oats and your favorite shake.
Or by purchasing some waxy maize and mixing it with your protein shake.
Generally I consider Optimum Nutrition's protein shakes a standard. But there are some other noteworthy companies like All the Whey, Cytosport, Gaspari, and BSN.

I'd say BCAA powder, l-leucine powder, casein protein powder, and fish oil.

to quote the great Nobert Schemansky:
"If some guy needs a special diet to lift weights, then I've already got him beat."
and he had some muscle!

Hmmm, I think I'm dropping my diet.

I take BCAA pre and post workout, plus L-Glutamine 3 x a day, milk protein before bed and whey in the morning. Other than that its a whole food clean diet....

Basics pretty much in my mind would be... Whey protein, fish oil, multi vitamin, bcaa's, creatine and if needed a pre work out supp.

All the Whey in morning and post
ON casein at night
bulk creatine mono or check out neovar
I always focus on getting good post-workout supp/shakes/meals. Be sure to get a good insulin spike and some quick digesting proteins, this will help you avoid the post-workout catabolic state that will destroy your gains. My favorite is Dark Matter. It has it all: simple carbs, protein, creatine, and waxy maize starch.
