    Formula-X/Division 1 combo gave me some nice strength gains

    Creapure/Beta-alanine also is great.

    What is your current diet like?

    How long have you been working out for? What is your supplement experience?

    Lol. I like this advise. Josh hit it right on the head. Good ol creatine (neovar is my preference 2) steak+eggs+potatoes and 5/3/1 all day. Could also add in a good pre workout if you find your energy or motivation lacking or just want that extra intensity in the gym.

    Do you think that it would still help me or could it possibly be harmful?

    No need. They do not aid strength primarily anyway.

    Good strength routine (5/3/1 or westside IMO) + creatine is the way to go.

    Yup they are right, you dont need them.

    Stick with creatine + food and you will be good.

    Starting strength, 5/3/1, madcows 5x5, WS4SB or stronglifts 5x5 are all excellent programs and with the proper diet and consistency you will make great gains.

    Again eat lots of red meat (steaks) and whole eggs. The only supplement I would suggest is creatine. Possibly some BCAAs or EAAs if you have extra money but you will make gains without them.

    Make sure that your diet and training are completely where they need to be. If you need to add in supps here are my staples

    1. Orange Triad
    2. Gut Health
    3. Creapure - the AX brand is phenomenal
    3. Isology and Trutien
