    Noob supps


    I just recent began working out, about 3 months ago. I want to start taking supplements but idk what to take. I also feel a supplement should stay a supplement and your food intake should revolve around food not powders.

    My cousin told me to use just straight up whey protien. Would that be all I need?

    Any help is appreciated

    Supplements revolve around food. The basic supps.

    Fish oil
    Creatine
    Protein

    No creatine does alot. Look up info on creatine. But yes, when creatine enters the muscle cell it draws excess water with it.

    There is so much more to creatine than just that. While you may hold water it all boils down to atp production. Atp being your body"s energy source, remember your biology . Along with some added size creatine is great for strength gains as well as muscuar endurance.

    Creatine replenishes ATP. ATP is a molecule. It has a carbon with 4 phosphates, when the muscle contracts a phosphate is used from the molecule ATP and creatines job is to replace the phosphate that was used.

    The dogma surrounding creatine is that your muscles retain water to the point that you resemble the Michelin man, which is completely false. ATP replenishment is well documented, as stated above.

    Supps that are good staples are multivitamin (if on a cut), fish oil at 2-3g/day of EPA/DHA, creatine at 3-5g/day, and beta alanine @ ~4g/day.

    I would also suggest supplementing with some branched chain aminos. L glutamine and leucine are great . Both serve many purposes in the body besides aiding in recovery and muscle function.

    Glutamine has been proven ineffective as a recovery aid. Leucine's effects are well-documented, but I believe they are enhanced if isoleucine and valine are also presence.

    Thank you for the correction. I was unsure about glutamine i have read boatloads of contradictory info. Would it be correct to assume it is more valuable as a immune function amino?

    There seems to be some truth to it.google search it according to the mayo clinic it causes elevated levels of dihydrotestosterone which blocks the hair follicles absorption of nutrients.

    first of all you are correct food is 100% of bodybuilding and training is the other 100% but supps do aid in recovery getting quicker results basicly giving the body what it needs if you dont have time or should i say the money to eat everything you need at one point i was spending 150 per week on food for myself i run the website nutritionshack.co.uk and i have a great diet plan for building lean muscle on there

    Slight increase in DHT levels, but I believe it's not by a significant margin. If you're overly sensitive to hair loss then it may cause an effect, otherwise I believe it's fine.

    I usually take a shake of 52g of whey protien with 5g of creatine during my workout. And my pre workout is a pill that has both 1500 mg of L-arginine and 1000 mg of L-ornithine. And my post workout is usually 1-2 cans of tuna, depending on how hungry I am

    And what is the fish oil for?
