I'm starting this stack today, yes I know, from what I've read at least, a lot of people here seem to hate Anabolic Halo and a lot of muscletech products because of their fake promises and such, or whatever. Truth is, I was a really uneducated consumer of supplements, so my only resort was GNC. AFter taking these I plan on starting the DRive/RPM stack, because I've heard lots of good things about it.
But my question is, Nitro-Tech Hardcore is a protien supplement, but it also lists that it has creatine in it, but not how much. And Anabolic Halo says it has creatine in it as well. So i was wondering, if I'm taking these two supplements, do I need to use my creatine-mono powder as well? Or would that just be a waste of my creatine? thanks.

SO with those two products you probably dropped about $130.00.
And that is why WE HATE GNC. 130bucks at Nutraplanet.com would have gotten you SOOOOOOOO much more. I would run these two alone. Maybe even try to take them back if they are unopened and get your money back. But if you have to run them. I doubt you will see anything close to what the scam artist at GNC promised you but what the hey. When you get ready to run your next stack and while you are running this overpriced junk. DO your research on what to buy next. AND get it at NUTRAPLANET.com, and get three times as much GOOD products.

GNC has a policy of 100% percent guaranteed money back no questions asked, even if uve only taken a couple of servings u can take it back. On the other hand dont be unethical and take it back if uve already used half of it.

I spent 90 on the two, and the guy didn't promise me anything, I just said I was looking to refill my protien, and try something that would give me some good results, and he just said that Halo was new and he's heard a lot of good things about it thats all. What would you suggest I buy instead? Or would you say I should just start the RPM/DRive stack?

1) Get everything from Nutraplanet next time
2) Creatine Mono Bulk 12.95 a kilo, get one
3) Waxy Maize by True Protein .com, 38.50 for five lbs.
4) Dextrose by NOW get one bag 3.50
5) Protein too many to pick but at Nutraplanet.com or Trueprotein.com you can make your own mix.
Take the Drive + RPM pre workout, Mix a scoop of Waxy maize, scoop of dextrose, and a scoop of creatine in a shaker cup and drink as soon as you do your last set, and in less than thirty minutes drink a protein shake and eat a good meal. Get the rest of your diet in check and add a few daily supp's like fish oil,flax seed oil, a good multivitamin,maybe a few other goodies. This is going to be around 100.00 but this will last you twice as long as the Muscle Tech.

My stats are, I'm 19, 150 lbs, and about 5' 7", been lifting consistantly for about 7 months now, the past 4 were when i started taking supplements(and by taking those, while lifting hard I've gained a good 15 lbs in muscle). My main goals are to just get stronger, and gain a bit more size, but i'm not looking to be absoluetly massive. My body fat is probably around 10%, maybe 8% I don't really know. And I'm not looking to spend like 80-100 bucks a month, even if it is on high quality stuff, the only reason i spent this much is because I got a **** load of cash for christmas so I decided to go blow it on some stuff and see what happens with it. I've decided not to return either of the products because it's not like i'm NOT going to get results with them. sure I might not get as good of results as I would have if I had spent the money at nutraplanet.com. But I'm still going to get results.

First off, welcome to AM! Secondly, if you do buy supplements, NutraPlanet.com is the place to buy from. Not only do they have great prices, but they have the best customer service on the NET!
I honestly think the only supplements that you should take right now in your position (age, experience) would be...
Protein (ON Whey)
Bulk BCAA's (cheap)
Besides that, just train hard and smart, eat (5-6 lean meals a day), get proper rest, and put forth the time before going too far in to the supplement world. Compound exercises would be the best option for you at this point. Don't skip the carbs either - you can not grow without them. Read up in the FLA forum. There is a 'clown' named BOBO that is very informative, so read up.
And just a word of advice, stay clear of GNC. If you need help, AM is the place for it!
Once again, welcome and enjoy!
