What supplements should i be taking?
Still being relatively new to supplements. I want to make sure i'm taking the right supplements. I'm trying to lose about 10-15 lbs and tone up and stay in shape. my problem area is abs. training hard with minimal results.
i'm currently taking;
Casein at night
whole food multivitamin
Just started ragnorok /Cycling of Jack3d
just started OEP
Glucosamine and Chondroitin
workout 4 to 5 days a week 2 hours a day;
Mon cardio 30 min, chest, Abs
Tues Cardio 30 min, Legs
Wed Cardio 30 min, Arms, Abs
Thurs Cardio 30 min, Legs
Friday Cardio 30 min, Back, Abs
I need a good meal plan. I eat pretty clean now, mostly baked chicken and fish, minimal fried foods, plenty green leafy vegetables and have 1 cheat day on the weekend. My weakness is the sweets. Need to make sure i'm eating the right foods.

stats are correct and i am 44. I sit behind a desk most of the day. I usually lift about 1.5 hours. i've probably been doing this routine for about 4 months. I try to vary cardio, running (varying speed, .5 incline), eliptical, cycling and stairclimber. for my workout routine i try to hit each muscle group being worked atleast 3 times at least 4 sets of 10 free weights and machines. I try to vary those excercises as much as possible, so im not doing the exact same routine each week.

www.fitday.com to try an determine that number. you can't get to where you want to go unless you know where your at....make sense?
also get the lifting time done to 45-75 minutes max anything more than that you'll be releasing more cortisol than anything and that would be counter productive. besides if you can't get done what you need to in an hour you're moving too slow. of course i say this being 10 years younger than you so i might feel the same way @ 44

I wouldn't spend so much time on ABS... do you do your Shoulders with Arms or what??? cuz you need to get shoulders into your workout

I checked out fitday and found I'm at about 2800 calories. My total work out time is 2 hours. forgot to calculate 15 minutes of stretching before cardio and about 10 minutes of socializing between sets. I do about 30 minutes of cardio and weight workout is about 50 - 70 minutes depending on how much talking i do.
Now that i've looked at caloric intake, I see where my problem is, diet!
on the day i do arms that does include shoulders. I changed my routine to concentrate on legs and abs since those seemed to be the problem areas. I do make sure i get a complete body workout in my weekly routine.

A great stack for leaning up would be IGF-2 and DRIVE. You could throw in some RPM to make it better. This spring I'm going to stack those three with Prime because I've been hearing good things about Prime and strength gains. If you're already fairly lean, you'll be surprised how much better this stack will make you look (trust me). If you're diet is spot on, I can't see how you wouldn't love this.

Sounds good, I'll start with that. What Supplements do you recommend? I don't want to be taking something that is not necessary.
