    1st supplement you bought?


    Me and my buddies were talking about this the other day, What was the 1st supplement you bought and how old were you? Most of the guys seemed to be suckered into Cell-Tech from GNC.....

    I remember mine was Precision Engineered (vitamin world cheap stuff) Fruit Punch Creatine and a 2lb Pinnacle Protein. Man I thought I was such a bad a s s.

    I thought it was soo expensive too, I think it was only like $45 or $50.

    I think mine was the original EAS Phosphagen. I don't remember if it was 100 or 200 grams. I think it was ~$40 in GNC.

    That was the first I bought, but I used to mooch off of my Dad's stuff (MLO Mus-L-Blast and Weider MRP/Weightgainers).

    That was sadly December 06 when I weighed in at 167

    My first supp was GNC chocolate protein, creatine monohydrate, and arginine in raw form. This was probably about a month after I started working out. The pumps from arginine were awesome. I think all in all it cost me like 65 bucks. I too thought I was a bad ass lol.

    Bought Musco MXT in the early 80's. Never knew exactly what was in there. All I know is that you had to take these drops in your mouth. The bottle came with a workout and nutrition plan which highly suggested PB as a protein source.

    Later bought Cybergenics. Best placebo supplement EVER!! Spending that kind of cash as a teenager ($120) really kept me focused on nutrition and training more than ever before.

    Not a supp, but at age 11, after watching Rocky, began drinking raw eggs and jogging every morning. Likely like many of you out there.

    Yes...I was $150 poorer and just as fat!

    I was in my teens looking for a shortcut. It could have been a 16 week cycle of Test and I would not have gotten anything out of it!

    With that said...I'm sure it was crapola

    Mine was Vitamin World store brand whey.

    I remember a friend telling me one night after we got done lifting about when he started lifting eight or nine years back. Discussing creatine he said, "and thats back when it was good, like it was made from sand and dead animals."
