    The Absolute Essential Supplements

    I just got done reading the stickies and a science journal about supplementation and weight training. It seems that the most important things are amino acids, protein, and carbs for supplements. But would supplementation even matter for someone new to lifting like myself? I started in October. I'm thinking about purchasing these supplements:

    Pre:

    Xplode
    EAA supp
    Carb supp

    During:

    Carb Supp

    Post:

    Protein & BCAA supp




    Does this seem rational for a semi-new trainer?
    Are there any important things I'm missing?

    I'll rep for serious advice.
    Thanks

    if your new, i would say just keep it simple....a good quality whey protein post workout(odds are your gonna get the bcaa's you need from the protein anyways). and a good carb source( fruit, oats, etc.) if you need tha extra jump before a workout, then yea go with preworkout. i wouldnt go with n.o. xplode tho...i recommend Assault or Craze.

    Multi vitamin fish oil and creatine. You dont need a carb supp food works just as good. Bcaa sups are a luxury wouldn't say they are necessary. Supplements can help with hitting nutrition goals, provide energy and focus assist with recovery but diet is first and foremost. The multi and omega can be taken care of through diet.

    Agree:
    Fish Oil
    Quality Multi
    Protein
    Creatine

    I'd hate to go without my preworkout (White Flood/Hemavol) and I strongly believe in extra Vitamin D, but they aren't "essential".

    none of what you said are essentials

    Essentials:
    Creapure
    Multi
    Fish Oil
    Whey (if you cannot get enough protein from whole food)

    Pre workouts are in no way an essential

    It is one of the only supplements that has literature going back YEARS studying the effectiveness on human muscle. Everything else is really just sugar coating to round out a diet IMO.

    yea...but i wouldnt say creatine is essential. Food, water, and iron are the only nessesites to gain mass. Even though one's diet may be spot on its still good to take:

    -Multi
    -fish oil
    -protien (if hasnt been met by daily macros)
    -Creatine
    -Nate
    PSN-N8TE

    I know this post is old, but I found it on Google. I just wanted to sound off that YES, there are some absolutely essential supps for newbies. Look into the scientific findings of Glutamine and recovery times for surgery patients being reduced by nearly half. If you apply that science in your routines, you can recover from your workouts in nearly half the times than without Glutamine.

    Also, take some time to research the scientific findings of the effects of CLA, and fat burning. Controlled study groups have found that the naturally occurring CLA, has definite impact on ones fat loss for reduction of belly fat and increased definition.

    Finally, you must intake about 40 grams of protein from a whey protein powder supplement daily.
