Hello everyone. This is my first post here at T-Nation. I was hoping to get help from you guys/gals.
I have been reading tons of forums and articles on this website as well as other websites and I still cant get a good understanding on which supplements to take.
I am 5’8" and weigh 155lbs. I havent worked out in 3-4 months and when I did, I usually benched 205lbs five times max. And worked on back, shoulders, bi, tri and abs. I didnt really focus on legs because I love to run long distance. During this time all i took was a GNC whey protein with 21g of protein in it when i woke up and after my workout.
Now that Im ready to start working out again, I wanted to try to taking some supplements. Which supplements do you guys/gals recommend? I have been overwhelmed with all the supplements everyone recommends here on this website.
But from what I have read, it seems like everyone recommends taking whey protein. Now, is the GNC 21g whey protein enough? Or should i get one with more protein? Also it seems like everyone recommends creatine, or some sort of supplement to take right before working out. I read that the Surge powder works pretty good also. What do you guys think? I have read that NO is also a good supplement to take. And there are so many different creatine and NO it is confusing the heck out of me.
I would like to keep my body lean. So im trying to stay away from products with lots of calories or fat.
Please help me! What do you think is the best way to start off if this is my first time taking supplements?
