You know, I have a cousin of mine, 5 yrs older, out of school, real nice job, and he takes about every “elite supp” he can get his hands on. I once asked him and he said he spends about 850 a month on supps. Here’s the kicker, HE"S STILL A FAT ASS. Not even the good “I have muscle underneath fat” more the “Can’t break a twig, lift a hammer, or take his shirt off without blinding everyone fat.”
Now I see him once every few weeks or so, and he always looks the same despite the fact he’ll talk about this great new supp he’s taking and how I have to try it, and how I must be on steriods because I only use like 4-5 basic sups. I just tune it out. I’m not huge, I’m 20 yrs old, 5’8 175-180lbs depending on the time of day, not sure of my bf percent but I can see all 6 of my abs without trouble, wear a 29 in waist, 15 in arms (not huge but something to work on.) and wear a size 42 jacket.(Don’t have leg measurement, the only reason I know anything but the arms is because I just got a suit fitted for christmas, btw, The Mens Wearhouse if you have one near to you is worth checking out.)
Everyday I’m getting bigger and stronger, I’ve done HP mass when I first came out for awhile and recently switch over to John Meadows Moutain dog for intermediates and I’m starting to grow again. I guess my take home point is that to “looked good naked” as many of us strive, then you don’t need all the best supps in the world, just hard, ball busting work, good sane nutrition, and some supps such a protein powder, Surge Recovery to drink during or after your workouts, or maybe some BCAA’s, Zinc is crucial in my opinion and dirt cheap, and during the winter months I like Vitamin D3.
Now keep in mind however, I’m a big fan of Biotest, and yes, while there marketing is a little extreme to those who see it everyday it’s genius none the less. They give us tons of free info, Almost every form of training I’ve done has come from something they published. Every Supp I’ve bought from them has been of good quality, and as a company I trust them. I would love to try Anaconda, MAG-10, and Indigo, but I can’t afford it. However, if you were to ask even Tim Patterson himself, I’m sure he’d tell you, 90 percent of it is Hard Work, Good Food, Rest, and your Basic Sups. Just think about it, everyone going to the Indigo boot camps are people who have paid their dues and have achieved that 90%.
