A safe muscle building supplement

  1. A safe muscle building supplement


    I'm 17 and I don't want to try anabolics because it obviously is not smart or healthy. But I was wondering what a good supplement is out there. Not creatine protein etc. But something better. Is nitric oxide good. What do you suggest? My goals are to get bigger arms mostly but I work out every group. Thanks


  2. Outside of whey/BCAA and creatine, there's nothing else you should be using. Nitric oxide has no efficacy on hypertrophy.

    Time and consistency. Those are the only things that will get you to where you want to be. No physique is built in a matter of months or even years.

  7. agreed, food!

    the only thing I might rec is a good post workout recovery shake. Torrent is my personal favorite, but there are some other good ones out there too.

    it really comes down to your diet and lifting.

  9. A food log to really track the exact amounts of protein,carbs,and fats you are consuming each day. You will have to learn nutritional values of the foods and will be surprised how much food it takes to get say 200g of protein a day...cleanly. Start with that and see how the scale moves.

    I am sure you do not want to hear this, but as others have said, at 17, you do not need any supplements. Spend your money on good food. You do not need any pills at this age. At 40, it is a different story, but at 17, you are golden, you have more hormones flowing in your body than you will find at a Tijuana pharmacy. Okay, that is not entirely true, but I hope you get the point.

    Eat healthy and follow a good exercise program. Do not just eat healthy, however, make sure that you consume enough calories to support muscle grows. You should be gaining, on average, around 1 pound a week. Stay away from junk food, but do not get overly obsessive with calorie counting and not cheating on your diet. You can eat what you crave at least once or twice a week, assuming you eat right the rest of the week. Follow a good exercise program. If you have not already, try StrongLifts 5x5.

  13. Food, volume and heavy lifting cycles and at least 8 hours sleep. A high calorie post workout shake. A good multi vitamin wouldn't hurt. The point your at right now is a magical time. Growth will come better now than at any point in your life. Stay in here and educate yourself on great training protocols and how to eat. There's no substitute for hard work my man

  14. Better protein bars
    whey to build muscle
    Power butter ( a big favorite)

  16. You have age and time on your side young man. Hell, if you just add 5 lbs a year(Low balling here), in 5 years you've added 25 lbs to your frame. Case in point, between the years of 17-18 my son went thru a growth spurt and put on 20 lbs! He is 5'11" and goes about 210 right now at 20 yrs old. He really focused on the macros this summer and put 5 more pounds on. Take your time and get the basics solid before adding in too many variables.

  23. Anabolic Pump + a ton of oatmeal. It blew me up like nuts back when I was 100% natural. Very serious.

    How does the anabolic pump work. Will it help increase size of arms? And what is it in general?

    What is anabolic pump? Does it work good to increase arms size? And does it have side effects like acne?

    Its a nutrient repartioner and if your eating a lot of complex carbs it will work pretty well. I think its probably the safest supplement for you to take beyond creatine at your age.
