    Supps for beginners?


    So lately Ive been working with more and more beginners, not a bad thing its just where the market is here.

    Every single one that ive had recently (5 total-3 of them women) have come to me with a laundry basket full of supps that they just dropped 3-400 coin on for a months supply. Not saying that all these are bad or not usable, but I cant see how 80% of these items are needed for a noob.

    So I would think that-Logically, until somebody got past their noob stage, the only really staples in sombodies suppliment closet should be,

    Protein blend of sorts
    Creatine
    Multi
    and if they were super serious, maybe some DAA or BCAAs.

    Am I wrong with this or just being too romantic about the yester-years of college and h/s when i didnt have money for all the other crap and did just fine on a weight gainer?

    any input and advice from people that are more knowledgeable than me on the matter is greatly appreciated!

    thanks guys

    I typically recommend:

    protein
    creatine
    multi
    bcaa (depending on diet and time of day training takes place, really)
    joint support (if warranted)

    and that would be it until they really develop good habits and a good knowledge base.

    I definitely recommend the whole food. I just don't see how powders can hurt, with a beginner especially. An Omega-3 sounds like it would be a good idea.

    The reason I say DAA is more and more studies are coming out about just total hormonal benefits of it. Apparently its used in regulation of all sorts of things-more usefull than just for boosting test levels in men.

    Thats kind of what I thought. Joint support i dont think would do a whole lot of good in the beginning stages because their joints are gonna be sore from the new stress anyway. I wouldnt think that G/C or cissuss would really affect that all that much-seems more like a niche for good ol advil or aleve

    I was thinking joint support for someone like myself who has the beginning of osteo arthritis that predates my lifting

    The basics for me and what I recommend include:
    Protein
    Multi-vitamin
    Fish Oil
    Creatine
    Beta-Alanine (people need to start adding this to their staples imo)

    I currently use:
    Various types of protein, including XF, IForce Isotean and Protean, Big Blend, and Pronom 23
    Orange Triad or Athletic-Multi
    iForce Peppermint Fish Oil (I get really bad fish burps these help a ton)
    I usually just take a creatine monohydrate, but I got a good deal on some Green Mag so I'm using that now.
    SNS Beta Alanine

    Now these aren't necessarily for "beginners" but I still consider them staples.
    SNS Agmatine
    SNS Citrulline Malate

    That + nootropics and some sort of natty test booster is what I run all the time more or less.

    I also take Hemavol and Compete, which of course contain some of these ingredients.
