Suggested Supps for Cyclist
I'm a competitive cyclist (bike) and am looking to take some supplements to aid in strength gain and recovery. I'm training 20hrs a week so that's lots of hard efforts on back to back days.
I was considering a taking a test booster and a glutamine supplement. I'm pretty lean and want to stay that way. But having some extra drive to push through 5+ hour bike rides and aided recovery would be really helpful. Someone suggested taking Novadex XT and a glutamine supp. Any suggestions??? Thanks in advance...

Thanks guys. The Cordygen looks interesting...def more up my alley than what most on here are looking for. In fact, a lot of the MST stuff looks like my gear. I'll do some research on it.

As for suggestions, there have already been a few good ones from others, but you certainly can't go wrong with glutamine. And not to give props AGAIN to AppNut, but Drive definitely increases endurance when weight training--probably because it contains cordyceps. Never tried it before cycling, but Rosie Scott is both a Drive lover and a (former?) competitive cyclist, so could be worth a try. It will also give you some testosterone support, should you decide not to take Novedex. (Or, f**k it and stack the two.)
Good luck! Let us know how it turns out.

micro creatine mono or green mag. I know lots of runners/cyclists who use creatine for extra endurance.

to keep it simple bulk beta alanine and creatine. Add in extra BCAAs for recovery.
But nothing will increase your strength like weight training and anabolics. Just saying.

MAN Body Octane and Cordygen5, or CRE02 and C5. No question. And yes, I used to be a very serious mt biker.

I think a lot of endurance athletes try the Appnut's Drive/RPM stack. MST has promising supps too though, for sure.

Could try a product called EPO-BOOST.Beta-alanine does a lot for my endurance even more so when combined with RPM.

I ride, getting prepped for cyclocross season this summer. I am tdy at ft lee and didn't bring my bike so I am concentrating on overall endurance improvements from running and swimming and I wan't to build some overall leg strength to better power through the tougher parts of the courses.
I am running a unique and natural GH/test boost regimen right now and am leaning towards getting a 240ct bottle of drive and cordygen ultra vo2 and stacking them starting around sept 1 which will take me into cross season with some better than average lung capacity. However, I started some rodiola extract today and if I see any aerobic capacity improvement from this simple supplement alone I will just stick with it and save my money!
I actually hope Nutra gets it together and puts these two together for an ultra endurance stack sale hint hint!

I just ordered the Ironman Stack, MVP 365 and CLOmega from MST. Looks to have all the goodies I need. I already have some glutamine and I'll think about the Novedex XT. It has a warning about positive tests, etc. Not sure if I want to risk going down that road.
Thanks to all! I'm just coming back from an injury so I want to regain and surpass my previous fitness as quickly as possible.

beta alanine, creatine, citrulline malate, and argino carn would be my suggestions, as well as peptopro or BCAA in your water as you ride....
most of those you can snag on primordials sale right now, as tons of guys including myself are stocking up.... citrulline malate they dont have tho
