    I Need Supplement Advice


    Hey my name is kevin and I'm brand new to the board.

    I have been lifting for about 4 years and Im 21 years old and I'm 6'0" and weigh about 171 (tall and lean) I want to put on more mass and stay cut. I would like to get to be 185 or so and i was wondering what your advice would be?

    I was thinking about taking a pro-hormone but I really couldnt find the right one. I heard sustEVOL, and testante 50 areterrible. Those were the two that I looked at. Or do you think that pro hormones are not the answer?

    What do some of you guys think I should do? I would appreciate as much information that you could give me. (supplements/post cycle/for my liver)

    I currently take Anabolic Muscle by Healthy n Fit for my protein. I have tried Sizeon and other products and just nothing seems to work

    Thanks

    Protein, eat healthy, sleep, train hard. Creatine would be OK, and vitamins.

    At 20 you are still producing more than enough test on your own. It just takes hard work - change up your routine. If you normally do 10 reps x 3 sets, try 20 reps x 5 sets, or 5 reps x 10 sets, etc. something ridiculously different for awhile.

    Grab that next higher weight on the rack and do 10 "Even though you can't do 10". Grab the smaller weight on the rack and do 100 reps, go crazy. Supersets, opposing muscle groups, all kinds of crap. Just keep your body guessing. Do Squats, they wake your whole body up.

    Don't mess with prohormones or juice at your age - you want your d1ck to work in college, or if not college, at McDonalds, right?

    Personally, youre too young and inexperienced. Being only 21 you probably have more growth time in you naturally. Plus how serious have you been lifting for the past 4 years? Post up your diet Include the totals of cal, pro, fat, carb.

    I'm betting you could add the mass you want without hormones are steroids of any kind. At 6 foot and 171, it's probably a matter of tweaking your diet and training..for which there is lots of info in the other sections. There's also many knowledgable people, if you are nice to them or at least blow smoke up their arses , they might point you the right way.

    Whatever you decide, Welcome to the board.

    ive been pretty serious about lifting 4-5 days a week for about 3 years now. Its just that I am a hard gainer.

    I dont know exactly what my calorie intake is but for example this is what i ate yesterday:

    7am : 4 eggs 2 pieces of toast, Protien shake (anabolic muscle), daily vitamin

    12pm: Roast beef sub, apple, two granola bars

    3pm: Bagel

    6:30pm: two 8 oz sirlon steaks, 2 servings steamed brocoli, 1.5 serving of pasta

    9pm: small serving of pasta

    (9:15 - 11pm GYM)

    11 Protien shake then bed

    I would consider this day A LITTLE below average for amount of food I usually eat

    I work 9-5 in an office so its difficult to eat a lot during the day, thats why im thinking about a pro-hormone to get me over the hump

    Instead of eating your 2 steaks at one meal, eat one with your bagel. Also, not having carbs after working out is a bad idea; if possible, work out earlier in the day and add some oats and fruit to your post WO protein shake.

    Everybody claims they workout hard, but if you aren't growing and getting stronger every workout, you are probably doing something wrong.

    I would do that and i can do that on the weekends, but its impossible during the week. I cant really take two lunch breaks. I get away with a bagel or something cause its small and i can work and snack on that at the same time


    But i will try the post WO advice...thanks

    You need to have some protein with your bagel; add a shake that is a blend of casein and egg whites and throw in some PB or almonds.
