Hey Folks... I've been reading this forum trying to figure out the best way to pose this question.
I'm an athletically built girl about 5'11 and 190lbs. I've been lifting my whole life through sport requirements and after college I started crossfit. I'm pretty well versed in what I need to do in the gym. Recently I've gained about 15lbs... I've always been comfortably at around 175lbs. This 190lb thing is B.S... and it's all fat.
I was really burnt out on crossfit, and a recent move and renovation had me all out of whack. I've decided to go back to my lifting roots and try the Hard Body Training for Women. I figured if I was going to take this seriously then I should seriously consider taking some of the supplements that Coach Thibaudeau recommended. I've ordered the Plazma and the Mag-10 and today was my first day taking them in conjunction with my early morning workouts.
I've been reading about Indigo-3G and I just don't know if it's right for me. It's fairly expensive so I don't just want to buy it on a whim. I'm not doing any kind of competition prep, I don't know what a "pump" is nor do I really care if I feel one during my workout, I don't know that I want to carbo load in order to see big gains. I think the Plazma and the Mag-10 combined will help me feed my muscles to get stronger... really I would be using the Indigo-3G to help me convert less of what eat into fat in order to aid in my overall slimming down.
I'm honestly just a supplement rookie. I'm getting confused about when to take what and then when to eat what. Some of the information I read is contradictory. Any advice or guidance would be amazingly helpful.
