I was looking at this forum the last couple days after a discussion with some co-workers about our training regimes.
How important are supplements? I really dont understand alot of the acronyms and biology behind it, but for the run of the mill person (non body building) are they beneficial?
In my case would it would be worth taking them? Some back ground on me, Im 33. I lift every evening (minus Sundays usually) for about 1 to 1/2 hours. I do about 30-60 minutes of cardio when I wake up in the morning Monday through Friday. I am in the Army so fitness is very important, especially muscle stamina. I have found as I have gotten older that I have a harder time keeping my strength and stamina on par. I also have put on some fat that I need to drop. (Im about 20% so quite fat)
Anyways so trying to turn over a new leaf, is it a good idea to take supplements for my training or stick to the old fashioned way? I am in the process of changing my diet (the hardest part I think). And its working, slowly, but its working. I would like to trim the rest of the fat and keep my without hindering my cardio.
So the big question is to supplement or not too?
Appreciate your time, will continue to read the forums more and try to educate myself.
