Last week I started the Optimized Volume Training program by CT, and the Carb Cycle diet also by CT. Before now I have just lifted hard without any structured program. It was time to finally commmit to a plan. I am looking to put on around 10 pounds of lean muscle, get stronger, and lower my body fat percentage. I am watching my diet very closely eating 6 meals per day. So far both programs are going well and I am noticing gains in vascularity and muscle definition. (I have been training for 4 years, 19 years old now.
My question is: What supplements should I be using for maximum results? Right now I am using the following:
1) NitroTech Protein - 2 scoops 3x Daily and Post Workout
2) ThermoGain - 3 x 3 Daily
3) CLA - With each real meal (not with shakes)
4) Omega 3-6-9 - 3 in the Morning
5) ZMA - 3 before Bedtime
I am running low on all of these except the ThermoGain which I bought two weeks ago. I would like to stock up on newer/better supplements to get me through the next 12 weeks.
I appreciate the your opinions, a few stats.
