I've been asking a lot of questions these past few days about track and working out so my bad if you've been seeing these similar threads lol but I was just curious about whether too much supplements would effect me in a negative way being that im a 400m/200m runner (both sprinting and endurance)
So, right now I've been taking half a serving of cyto gainer in the morning, serving of muscle milk after a workout, and half a serving of cyto gainer before sleeping. I've also started taking beta-alanine. Just so you dont have to go out and look it up, here is basically what im taking in just with supplements each day.
Total Fat 18g
Saturated Fat 9.5g
Total Carbohydrate 91g
Basically, for those of you who don't have too much knowledge about track, for races like the 400m/200m you have to be powerful/strong/fast but you can't be too bulky or else you wouldn't be able to move as effectively. I weight train 3 times a week (M/W/F), on (T/Th) i do smaller workouts without weights, and I of course run every day. My main question is that with my workout regimen and with the supplements that im taking would I see any weight gains and if so do you think this would negatively effect my track performances? Thanks in advance for your thoughts but input from other track athletes who run the same events me would be great
and i know some of you might be thinking why I would choose cytogainer as a supplement, but i have 2 tubs of it only because i started using them back when my main focus was football and i WANTED to bulk up, as opposed to now.. im thinking maybe muscle milk is the better way to go?
