    supplements for 18 yr old


    I'm looking for a supplement that will benefit me as I'm only 18. I'm not looking for a prohormone or anything like that. anything you guys can suggest? (please, don't say diet or anything like that)

    whats your training experience? what does your diet actually look like? What are your overall goals? There's a ton of different supplements out there that do a ton of different things. if you can give some speciffics we can give some assistance.

    simple. start with the basics. I always use creatine. I'm a believer monohydrate is the best. its by far the cheapest. l-glutamine works almost synergistically with the creatine. and a basic protein blend. I'm a big fan of syntha 6 or myofusion for flavor and they way that their proteins are blends of several different types. Those are my 3 absolute staple sups, 365 days a year. The creatine and glutamine with help with your recovery and strength, when i was like 16 i couldnt get past 185 on bench. i took some mono, in about 2 weeks i was at 205. i personally think the stuff is white gold. more so than cocaine.

    Like i said those are my big 3 and you can find all of them fairly cheap. i'm sure nutraplanet has them pretty inexpensively priced. one of the things i've been doing lately is buying bulk creatine and glutamine, like 5 months worth for 20 bucks each, and mixing them with flavored bcaa's. seems way cheaper than buying pills or flavored concoctions. works just the same. just take them with some carbs. Theres no such thing as a wonder drug or supplement but they will help as long as you keep your diet nailed down, training hard and get plenty of rest.

    thanks for the input. I have been using protein since started to workout. tried mono hydrate and did have some nice gains. I've heard kre-alkalyn is good too but I haven't tried it.

    Honestly theres not enough difference between different types to make up for price differences. If your body absorbs mono stick with it.

    Since youre already using "the staples" maybe a nitric oxide booster like arganine or agmatine.those are pretty good products. Ive always enjoyed the nitric oxide pump. Pre workouts are nice. They give good intensity and that extra energy at the end of a work day. Im not a rep for purus labs but their muscle marinade is off the chain. I feel like superman on that ****!

    Most supplements are safe. But at 18 most aren't worth the price. I like C4 but have yet to use the marinade. Creatine, Protein, a preworkout are all you really "need". You could get some BCAAs but if you eat enough protein then you don't really need those either.

    Theres tons of others.. hop on nutra planet. Look at stuff they have on there. If it sounds interesting read up on it. If it sounds legit, and fits your budget give it a shot... theres tons of other supps out there. Too many to list. Theres no need to take a million different ones, after all they just supplement your diet. Just gotta weed out the bs type stuff and find what works for you.

    I'd give away all my supplements to have the testosterone levels I had when I was 18. Really no need for anything but food at your age.

    Good luck buddy

    The main TAKE HOME message is this

    You are young and all your hormones support growth like you wouldn't believe!!!!!!

    If you eat right, concentrate on consistency and discipline, you can grow like a WEED.

    You dont need any supplements. Save your cash!

    Protein and maybe some creatine and you're good to go!
