I apologize if this is in the wrong section or the wrong format to asking a question on my topic. If this needs to be moved, go ahead. But here goes:
-22 Years old
-Currently lift once a day, usually everyday
Supplement history: I normally take BSN before every lift, and for the last four months I have been taking BSN Cell Mass after. I love NO-Xplode, but I have heard there might be better stuff out there. I have had so-so results with the Cell Mass.
Protein: I use to drink a proten drink once in the morning and once at night, and a regular Whey after my workouts. For the last month or so I tried the Champion Nutrition Weight Gainer (because that is what I was trying to do.)
Diet: My diet isn't that good until just the past few days. I used to just eat whatever. Minus eating a lot of fast food. But I would eat at the bar, have pizza, you know, college stuff. But just now I have started the David Zinczenko Abs Diet. I really don't know my calorie level. Maybe 2,500-3,000?
Goal: I have been working out for 11 straight months, the longest I have ever lifted in my entire life. I am naturally pretty skinny, so I always wanted to gain size. I have added a significant amount of muscle and size, but now that we are getting closer to summer I want to get more cut.
Workouts: I rotate a chest day, back and bicep day, shoulders triceps day, and then a abs/extended cardio day. I have just recently started cardio and abs every other day. I have tried to work in a legs day, but I just can't. I used to do 4x8 on my lifts, but the past two weeks I have started 3x12. For cardio I play basketball or ride a bike.
Recommendations: My buddy who I lift with is telling me that I need to start taking . I have also been told by others to just stick with what has been working.
So, I ask, what kind of supplements should I start taking? What kind of protein? Pre-work out? Post-workout? If I missed any questions let me know....Thanks in advance.
