    Depends on the supplement, generally speaking all you really need is whey protein and a multi-vitamin.

    Your test levels will be through the roof, you do not need nor do you want to be taking any test boosters or estrogen blockers.
    What are your current stats? (height/weight/bodyfat %/diet)

    Well, can you see abs or do you have a bit of a fat belly?
    Your diet sounds good (you might want to try and eat a little more proteins, like 200g) but how much fat do you take in on average?

    If you've got a decent workout routine and if you're not a hard gainer (someone who finds it hard to gain weight) then there's no real reason why you shouldn't make good gains without supplementation of test-boosters or creatine.

    Then may I suggest you eat a lot more than you do already then, you should see gains come nicely with enough calories at your age.

    Drop that shake and instead take this-
    200g Oats- ~480
    30g Whey- ~120
    400ml Skim-milk- ~200
    that should equal to at least 800kcal and has more carbs and protein than True Mass, plus it costs less.

    I'm not going to rag on ya, but listen:

    I wrestled for 8 years (high school and college). Is test bad for you if you have too much? The simple answer is yes. Wrong dosing (especially for a teen) could make you end up with some nice gyno (boobs).

    And if you are wrestling, then don't think about getting test! Skill, endurance, and heart will always, and I mean ALWAYS beat strength. And since wrestling is a high intense workout, always make sure you hit the weights, eat enough protein and carbs, and always pound water. You will lose around 20% of your strength per season otherwise.

    Start researching around 21, 22.. most will say 25 you can start. 17? Ha, don't even think about it.

    Just a quick tip, you won't experience gyno from this product.

    It will help to elevate testosterone levels, but only to a certain point. You will not experience shutdown of natty test.

    The main thing to remember here is that at 17, natural testosterone levels are raging to begin with. It's the perfect age to dedicate yourself to learning proper nutrition and effective techniques.

    A good portion of us old folk here at AM, are using supplements in order to help us achieve natural levels.... that you already have.

    Most of the other schools we have matches with are on like growth hormones and other junk so they just over power us.
    I am very fast and fexible and have pretty good endurance. but like 1 to 2 mins into it im worn out cuase they overpower me alot.Thats why i was trying to put on as much mucsle on as possible before season starts up. I also have been training every other day.

    If the wrestling team in question is using GH or anabolic steroids at the ages of 17.... than I would just report them to the authorities.

    Chances are, they are just using some supplements that are accompanied with a lot of hype (wich only makes them think they are the Incredible Hulk).

    All in all though, just take advantage of your gift. You're a walking testosterone machine, all ya need to do is just keep coming to this forum and apply the secrets that you learn here. You just have to train hard, properly, and eat as much of the quality foods as you can get down your throat.

    Good luck and let us know how things end up.

    Good, bro. Keep that training going. But remember when you are in season, just make sure you don't neglect the weights. You'll be tired... but at the end of that third period, your 5 points down, and you reverse the guy to his back, you'll be glad you didn't do JUST the average. Losers do the average. Winners work for it.

    Good luck. Wrestle as many tough matches are you can! It's the only way to get better.
