It’s time to give you an update on my supplement stack. I just got back from Southern Muscle and I’m going to be trying three new supplements I’ve never taken before. The types of supplements I’m trying have been staples in my supplement plan for several years now: multi-vitamin, pre workout supplement, and creatine. The other supplements are staying the same.
New Multi-Vitamin: I’ve been consistently taking Universal Nutrition’s Animal Pak for my multi-vitamin for many years, although I’ve tried Anavite by Gaspari Nutrition a few months ago (which is a great product). This time I’m trying a product called MVP 365 by Millennium Sport Technologies. The label is loaded with many effective nutrients so I’m excited to try this out.
New Pre Workout: My pre workout supplements tend to change frequently. As I’ve stated before, no matter how great a pre workout supplement works, I think over time the effects may diminish as your body gets used to it. Although most pre workout products are relatively the same, the slight mix of different ingredients each one contains seems to be enough change to keep my workouts fueled. I usually keep two pre workout products on deck but I just ran out of Hemo Rage and decided to pick up a can of Cellucor C4. This stuff (supplements in general) can get expensive so I don’t see myself buying another pre workout product until I run out of C4. I’ve heard a lot of good things about it so I figured I’d give it a shot.
New Creatine: Lastly in regards to new stuff, I’m trying out a new creatine supplement for the first time called C.G.P. (Creatine Glycerol Phosphate) by Metabolic Nutrition.
Here’s my current supplement stack:
> Dymatize Elite Whey Protein – 1 scoop pre workout, 2 scoops for all other shakes
> Cellucor C4 – pre workout
> Dymatize Elite Recoup (BCAAs) – during and post workout
> Metabolic Nutrition C.G.P. (creatine) – post workout
> Millennium Sport Technologies MVP 365 (multi-vitamin) – morning (post workout) and with last meal of the day
> Sping Valley Fish Oil – post workout and with last meal of the day
Another addition here is I started back taking my BCAAs during my workout as well as post workout. I’m training with more volume now and feel those extra BCAAs are helpful for muscle energy as well as recovery. Another great thing about Dymatize Recoup is it contains B vitamins.
You can expect written and video supplements reviews in a few weeks on these new supplements I’m trying out. Like most of my supplement stack, this is a fairly basic supplement plan covering what I feel the essentials are for intense weight training: protein, BCAAs, creatine, multi-vitamin, fish oil, and a pre workout supplement. That’s it for now.
