I’m a little curious as well.Not only supplements but how many grams of protein inrelation to body weight…
If ur spending the extra money on gear might as well have all the right supplements going into ur body.
Any suggestions…Bill…Brook…BBB.Would love to hear there thoughts[/quote]
Anything you would take because of health improving properties off-cycle is equally worth-taking on-cycle.
Now if you are a younger guy that may be a very thin list. Not that it probably wouldn’t actually be wise to take supplements that lessen development of atheroscleroris let’s say, and so forth. But you won’t notice it. Whereas if you’re in your 40s or so let’s say, you start realizing that it’s a lot more desirable to spend a little to probably reduce risk of strokes, heart attacks and the like that otherwise might not be unlikely in the next 10-20 years.
As for things like T-boosters or other subtle performance enhancers or supposed performance enhancers, forget 'em. Though if a person is really convinced that some given product – let’s say NO-Explode – really works for them, then it would probably be best to try discontinuing that product at some other time, rather than right at the cycle. For a couple of reasons: first, nothing will be learned because of other factors (the steroids) changing at the same time, and second, because conceivably there will be a nagging negative psychological factor that something that should be there, isn’t. Even if the product does nothing, it’s perhaps better to blow the bucks and not be second-guessing oneself during the cycle. Then do a trial later to see if such an item really does, or does not, work for you.
Quality protein is as useful as ever. Supplements that you can in fact tell enhance your workouts, whether from more neural drive (if one wants to call it that) or ability to do more reps, or ability to do more work without CNS burnout or other outside-of-gym fatigue.
But whether that is so for an individual or not with a given such supplement is pretty much the same on-cycle as off-cycle.
For example in my own case the items allowing more performance in terms of reps are SWF, ribose, and Beta-7.
Antioxidants may also have that effect, I don’t know. There’s some scientific evidence of better function but as I don’t do back and forth trials without anti-oxidants, I don’t know in my own case.
Enhanced ability of the brain to use the body is from Power Drive. I also take bacopa but really do it as a pro-health thing. Don’t know if it enhances functionality so far as weight training goes. Also policosanol.
So far as better ability to take the neural stress (if one can call it that), Rhodiola and holy basil.
But most definitely getting the appropriate protein and carb intake comes ahead of any supplementation. Or, in terms of results, having a decent stack comes way ahead of any supplementation (assuming reasonable food intake.) So it must be stressed that these are relatively finer points.
