So, I have a few questions in reference to suggested supplements and even any advice on exercises for me. I am 18 years old and I'm finishing my freshman year of college. This year has been the first I have even tried to eat healthy and exercise (because I now I have available resources) but I'm a little confused as to what I should be doing.
My only way of getting information on workouts are from researching online but there are so many different recommendations that its overwhelming! I've lost a lot of the weight that I had in high school simply by eating healthy and working out moderately. But my real goal is to build muscle all over my body, mostly in the legs.
I think I have a pretty good idea about what exercises I should do for that (though any input would be greatly appreciated!) although I am a bit unsure how much weight progression/ reps and sets I should do to maximize muscle gain.
As far a supplements go, I am completely in the dark. I started to read posts by other members to see what might be good for me, but really I have no idea since everyone's goals are usually much more advanced than where I am now. So, my question: What supplements do you suggest I take to increase my muscle gain while also keeping me from gaining fat? Should a specific diet be followed along with the supplements?
I am concerned as well about the affects these supplements would have on my body's health. I am an aspiring Naturopathic Doctor so the overall quality of a supplement is very important to me. I don't want to forfeit my health for my appearance!
Any help on any of these subjects would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
