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

Straight to the point. A Diet plan is ur best thing for strength/ size/ whatever. At 15 that's all u could ever need. Maybe a fish oil but that's it. Have coffee pre workout. You could take whey post work outs. But a calculated amount of macro nutrients along with a progressive workout program is where its at.

My nephew is 17 and is 6'2 185..he has been scouted by some big schools in the U.S...here is what he is doing for size..breakfast consists of approx 25grm protien isolate drink with blended banana and tablespoon of greek yogurt in 1% milk..4 egg white texas omelette. after 20 minutes he drinks half liter of H20. Hits the gym where he does a basic power session..4 sets per bodypart,,with the last set heavy enough that he only gets 4-6 reps. He does the "Arnold" basics..bench, shoulder press, squats, curls, chins, rows..(not in one workout lol..he does chest and biceps one day, back and triceps next day,,dedicates one whole session just for legs.) Then he eats a bowl of 4 egg whites scrambled with low sodium salsa..washes it down with jug o water. Then off to class. Lunch is tuna on whole grain,,banana, apple. with water.Supper is broiled chicken or sirloin steak steamed veggies,,baked potatoe plain. Then he goes for 10k ride on mountain bike..more water then a final protien drink with just milk. Multivitamin..then hit the pillow for 7-9 hours. He has put on 10 lbs with this program in just 2 months,,lean muscle! Getting bigger and stronger and his confidence is thru the roof..Hope you can use some of this..cant stress the constant water intake thing enough..the key to keeping it all metabolized. The grocery bill is kinda high,,but hey its there boy, they are giving him the edge he needs to hopefully make the big leagues!! Ps, he can take creatine in 5 more years,,not now.

Low fat, low sodium, and low cholestrol diets are not good long term. He may do well for the next couple of decades, but this diet will hurt his hormone levels by his 30's. This is a dated 1980's diet that has caused many problems for everyone who has used it. The best way to get creatine is through lots of beef and chicken, as especially beef supplies a lot of it. In fact if someone eats a lot of beef with chicken as a backup, adding creatine is useless. BTW, eating lots of beef makes a BIG difference in strength growth in youth, and it's more than the creatine.

One day his liver will not fully compensate for the lack in diet. Low fat messes with all hormone levels. Healthy fats are the answer, not low fat. Salt is one of the few sources of iodine for most people and if he is not getting enough iodine he will have hypothyroid problems some time in the future.

Same thoughts. No point to a low fat diet. He's playing sports not doing a contest prep

If you say so...
He will only have hypothyroid problems if he is prone or in his family history, daily intake of what he is consuming will take care of fat and soduim levels,, electrolite replacements are essential cuz he lives in Texas. I didnt write down some of the side snacks cuz my point was to keep it old time football simple. Saw your age and respect your exp. But this is a tried and true strength and size program, period.

First of all he is 15 years old only Rome Was not build overnight . Make sure you take him and have his thyroid checked , next he needs to eat good old fashioned food Chicken some beef fish all proteins good complex carbs for sustained energy , Good weight training program and rest .
The rest will come with maturity and consistency . If he is going to be a football star will be , but you can't make one with supplements!

The shakes he is taking right now are solid. He needs to have a high calorie and high carb/protein diet. Make sure his diet is clean, pizza suce is not a vegetable. He needs lean meats and whole grains with veggies and fruits. 4500-5000 calories a day should do the trick.

You can build muscle off of McDonald's, but the quality will be horrible and minimal strength and size gains. Lot's of chicken breasts, lean steaks, fish(Salmon), and spaghetti and other carbohydrate supplements with Anabeta by PES and he will surely reach his goals!
