You'd be better off spending it on better food in the end. free range beef, wild salmon, etc. On a fat loss phase, green coffee bean extract is a cheap addition. Those things can maybe make a 5% difference on gains/losses vs just proper eating/rest/training without them. Adding in the other more exotic stuff may make certain things feel/seem better, but no real evidence of real actual gains. If you make $250k a year then ****it spend the $200 since its a drop in the bucket income wise. Just for plenty of the guys here that is more than they pay for electricity or even a car payment.
    Agreed. This made me think of the thread asking how guys in lockup get so yoked.

    Eat, workout, sleep, repeat. It's amazing what a strict regimen of rest and set schedules will do for the body. We place too much emphasis on supplements that really make probably little to no difference at all.

    Protein, cheap.
    Creatine, cheaper.
    Multivitamin, essential.
    Fish oils, take em.
    Preworkout, I gotta have one.

    Maybe hitting $50-$60 per month with those, and that'll do the trick if you go hard with a good routine. The rest is all just add-ons and wants. Not needs.

    This is true. But theres some good stuff out there... without some supplements i wouldnt be able to eat all of the food...
    Of coarse the basics and staples are a must... some people need it... but there are some good things out there... plus food wouldnt give me the awsome workouts i get... preworkout supps do... if im lucky coffee will do that... but then im running to the toilet after... so enjoy the monopoly money 200$ you have and gimme a list! Thanx! Lol

    I also agree with you as well. Ever since I got into preworkouts about 8 months ago, I don't get as good of a workout without them. They are a must for me.

    I haven't had much experience with test boosters or AI's, but I plan on it in the future. And just because I say $200 is a lot, doesn't mean I take my own advice

    ...i spend way more than I should...i think I'm addicted ..

    Nah.... not good at all.... but i thought pct supplements arent worth anything...? I thought it should be through food?

    Lol yeah honestly the only protein shake i can take is myofusion from gaspari... the probiotic helps a ton... and that sucker is 70 for a 5 lbs... but its only taken after workouts and busy days... so it lasts longer than a month... i realize 200 is alot but its fun to dream... who doesnt like dreaming? Thats why the lotto is so popular...

    Haha like I said, I don't take my own advice. Superdrol AND good food?.. Lets do it! Lol

  10. I stopped everything but a cycle of sarms "osta" in order to really evaluate its effects, but pesonally if I had stick to the $200 budget I would invest the money elsewhere.

  11. After all the basics are covered, I'd use the rest to pay for my cycles & gas to drive further to a better gym. Lifting in a hardcore environment can do more than any preworkout for me.

  12. I agree totally with the better gym thing, I would do the same

    I've seen several people say that about NOW, I've always been curious as to why they think that and what caused them to think that. As far as your question goes, yes I disagree.

  16. All I'm sayin' is, NOW Taurine is where it's at. Stuff is legit and CHEAP.

    I'm still too young to give facts(only 24 post now)- soon. I'm just more curious as to what makes people believe these things about certain companies. They could very well be correct, I would like to know why.

    They've been around forever, they sell their products in huge volume, so they are also subject to closer scrutiny and more testing. At their size they get good pricing from the high volume, and can afford to do decent QA testing.

    Its hard for me to think of many major company that hasn't had at least one of those or an ingredient not listed on the label at least once over their history. And particularly once a company has been hit with that once, they tend to be really careful afterwards.

  22. It was multiple products from the NOW line, discourages you from purchasing

  23. - Protein pudding
    - Protein pancakes
    - Whey protein isolate
    - BCAA's
    - Maltodextrin
    - Creatine nitrate
    - Good preworkout product
    - Fish oils
    - Vitamins and minerals
    - Some natural anabolics/test boosters/gh boosters, 1 to be run at time
    Life is nothing but big macs and hoes.

  24. On months:
    BULK-UP
    Humapro
    Modern BCAA

    OFF months:
    DAA Caps cheapest
    Source Naturals DIM
    SNS Creatine
    Nutraplanet BA
    Modern BCAA
    Humapro

    In the end I do not consider $200 a month a ton to spend on something you enjoy doing on a daily basis. Smokers spend a ton on cigs a month. People that go to the movies every weekend spend a lot. People that enjoy going to sporting events spend a lot. Those that enjoy eating out can easily get to 200 a month. Finally those that are young and enjoy going to trendy clubs easily can spend 200 in a night, I know I used to(idiot). Personally I would rather someone sink 200 a month into bettering them selves vs getting wasted like millions do each week. Just my 2 cents.



  25. Basics:
    A SPORT multivitamin
    ALA
    Digestive Enzymes
    Whey protein
    Mix protein (egg/casein)
    Creatine
    Leucine
    Glutamine

    Other add-ons:
    L-Alanine
    L-Glycine
    Beta Alanine
    Citrulline Malate+Agmatine+AAKG (straight pump)
    Nettle Root
    Maca
    DAA

    If I have MORE MONEY I'll throw peptides in there....no hormonal stuff OTHER THAN test boosting things like maybe low dosed Clomid.
