    Total beginner wants a conservative start


    Hello. I am a twenty-one year old who's recently begun working out seriously. I'm looking for something basic to start off with in the supplement department. Safety, quality, reputation, and well-established effectiveness are primary concerns: I'm looking for stuff backed up by large-scale clinical trials, nothing with a name as long as my arm and brightly-colored block letters on the label. Creatine seems to fit the bill: is there anything else that sounds like what I'm looking for?

    good idea.

    i'd throw the creatine into some grape or apple juice and you're good to go.

    also, make sure you've got your vites covered. get a quality multi-vitamin

    Lots of quality food, the above mentioned supplements, and quality sleep. As you stated, you just recently started lifting seriously so you should have no problem making some good gains without hormonal manipulation.

    All you need is:
    * Creatine
    * Multivitamin
    * Good Fats (you can get this from your diet)
    * Protein Powder (you can get enough protein from your diet, but is convenient to use at such times like post-training; or if you do not get enough from your diet)

    Wow, someone who is just starting out that has some common sense, thats refreshing! Make sure you have a good diet planned out most of all.
