I've been trying to get back in the game with working out and wanted some help with supplements. I currently take omni-women multivitamins and gold standard whey protein. I'm not a fan of pre workouts because of high blood pressure in my genetics, but am curious about BCAAs. Any thoughts? Are they worth it? I'm looking for a starter stack that's not too complicated. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

it wouldn't hurt, unnecessary if your diet has enough protein though.

Yeah... fish oil, creatine... those would come to mind first. Even creatine isnt that big of a deal, if you are more on the exercising side of things.

I know they help fight catabolism, so that would make sense. But is that basically all they're good for?

Multi
Fish Oil
Creatine (its fine for girls)
Whey Protein

BCAAs are only worth it if your doing 2hours+ of cardio.

as others have mentioned fish oil would be a better choice. may benefit you even more with your genetic disposition towards high BP.

if your training fasted or doing long cardio sessions by all means buy a bcaa product. even if your not it wouldnt hurt you at all.

I usually do 30 minutes of cardio three times a week or so. Fish oil does seem to be a trend. Thanks for the help guys! I'll throw some fish oil into the mix and think twice about the BCAAs. :)

30mins? Don't waste your money on BCAA's seriously.
