Best supplements for mass and strength for a 15 yr old male

He's 6'1 190 at 15, the kid clearly has superior genetics and should build on them before even touching a supplement. It truly irks me how many young kids put things in their bodies that they simply do not need. I was lucky enough to have a father that didn't allow me to use anything other than protein shakes and puberty."No citizen has a right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training...what a disgrace it is for a man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable." - Socrates

He is currently taking protein shakes and jack3d but after some information I have received on this thread he will no longer be using the jack3d. I just didn't know but it sounds like some of the supplements out there are just as harmful for a 15 year old as performance enhancement drugs are to adults. I will continue to let him use the protein shakes but nothing else until he is old enough to make his own decisions. I appreciate your input. Thank youOriginally Posted by oogaly_boogal

Does he do any Olympic lifts? I think adding them, atleast cleans or power cleans, can do wonders for an athletes sprint. Especially for the 40yd.

For you, considering your 15. You need Calories to be your Number 1 Supp. Everything else is extra....Most kids your age aren't eating the way they should. Get a head-start on them and eat the right way. If your playing a sport or lifting often, eat extra meals and lots of protein. You want to consume the majority of your calories from whole food for developmental benefits. Start here first. Maybe creatine mono would be my only other suggestion

Yes he does many power cleans. That is actually one of his favorites to do. I am not sure what an Olympic lift is.Originally Posted by jaycuda

Seriously, using DMAA and hefty caffiene doses at 15. Forget football scholarship as he will be doing crack by 18. No need for stimulates at 15 unless just want a buzz. I had plenty of energy at his age. My 15 year old daughter is Olympic development program soccer, played varsity in 8th grade and played on a high school competitive team since 12 years old. These girls don't drink caffiene and do not eat sugar anywhere close to game time. Encouraging Jack3d at his age means he will start having to get artificially pumped up just to play football. Starting out on wrong foot mom.

FYI for all the "Jack3d will test positive for amphetamines" people.
It will not show on a standard NIDA 5 drug test. It would be possible to test for it, but somebody would only test for it if you were already suspected of using that drug and they would sports, it is tested for because it can be used as a performance enhancer, but a standard drug test does not test for it.

I'm probably/maybe alone here, but when I was younger I took creatine, protein, and a multi. I've never seen those a big deal for younger (15-17 year olds) who are training to take.
All of those things will be for naught if his diet, sleep, and training aren't on point.
Right now for him it's
20% 15 year old test levels and age boost
That is a good way to look at it for him. Train hard, Eat hard but clean, and later on supplements can help with an edge. Then it's more of:

I started around that age. My uncle suggested three things: ZMA for me to help me get better sleep since I was going from 6am to 10pm daily (school, practice, and homework), pure creatine with no filler, and whey protein. Go to nutraplanet, buy bulk monohydrate creatine, whey protein, and ZMA.

What can anyone tell me about BSN Cell Mass? He has been on me about trying it and I told him I needed to do some research on it. Is it safe to use for a 15 year old?

Any suggestions on the type of diet he should be eating? He eats a lot of lean protein such as chicken, fish and turn. He also eats beef jerky, peanut butter, nuts, seeds, protein bars and protein shakes. Also, as much milk as I can get him to drink, he doesn't like it but he does drink it.

Then listen to an ex college football player. Get him bulk creatine and muscle milk and be done with it... Add one scoop of creatine to two scoops of muscle milk post lift.

I started my son lifting at 14 and never let him lift heavy till he was 16. I just keep it at food form. No supps whatsever, by the time he as 18 he was 6'2" 270 and running a 4.9 40. Spuatting close to 600 and deading in the mid 500's. You do not need supplements for teens.. you just need a good healthy diet. No heavy lifting till there 16 as you can do a lot of damage with the bones being still failrly soft. They will take off when there 16 cuz you have taught them perfect form.

Basketball is always an option. 6'1 now. 6'6 by the time he's a senior. No crazy people telling you crazy stuff. If he thinks he needs to gain weight eat, eat, and don't forget to eat but eat clean. Protein is número uno. He's working out too much. Hit the weights 3 to 4 days a week. Lessen, not avoid, the cardio to avoid burning all the calories. Lift big to get big. No high reps for muscle endurance. 8 reps per set max.

I used creatine monohydrate when I was 16.. I turned out alright lol. A lot of food, lifting, and then if you need to add another supplement I don't think there is anything wrong with creatine at that age as long as he stays hydrated and his coaches let him drink water when he needs it.

Also, something I have been doing since I was 16 for a cheap weight gainer is to get a small blender, mix 1.5 cups milk, 1 cup oats, and 1-1.5 scoops whey in the shake. You can add other food items as well. Easy 700+ calories you can drink in 5 minutes. I would stay away from the maltodextrin filled weightgainers and stick to home made shakes.
