I am 37 years old and have been lifting off and on for the last ten years. Since finding this forum, my gains have improved dramatically. My sincere thanks to everyone that contributes to this forum.
That said, I am about 15-20 pounds heavier than I care to be. Simply put, my goals are to replace the fat with muscle and get stronger doing it - by September (I hope I do not need to do the Alpo diet).
My current routine is three days a week and focused on compund lifts - snatch, cleans, squats (F&B), deads, chins, standing presses, bench press, rows, etc. Heavy weights with low to moderate reps. My cardio is limited to walking the hound about three miles a day.
One of the questions that I have is what types of supplements should I be taking? I read about protein powder, creatine, fish oil capsules, flax seeds, etc and I have to admit that I find it rather confusing. In short, I am curious what you guys have found that works and what you would recommend for my goals.
Thanks in advance for the time and effort.
