I exercise 5 days a week and will be running track and lifting next month.I train hard and eat good and plan on gaining strenght in the gym and speed on the track. Ive been taking a multivitamin and a protein powder for about 2 years. I just received some supps i ordered from Biotest and want to get some more opinions to make sure i dont bomb my kidneys or anything like that. Heres what I take each day.
-Protein Shake (Whey): 2 scoops post workout
-Creatine Monohydrate: 3 grams w/shake Post workout
-Mens one a day multivitamin: In the morning w/ breakfast.
-1500mg Omega EFA Complex (Omega-3,6, & 9): 6 per day (2 per meal)
Starting Next Week:
- Biotest Beta-7: 6 tablets
- BCAA: 12 tablets (6 preworkout, 6 post)
- ZMA: 2 a day (The recommended dose is 3 a day)
- Caffeine-Free Spike: I plan on taking these sparingly. Mostly on leg days, track workout days, and definitley at track meets.
So it comes down to me taking all these in one workout day. I train 4 days a week in the gym.
-Omega-3,6, & 9 EFAs
-Caffeine-Free Spike (Sparingly)
As far as my diet goes, I eat great. I drink plenty of water, eat NO junkfood, no fastfood, no sweets. I consume about 2500 calories a day and Have a high metabolism.
Heres my proposed routine I plan on using for the next few months. I will also begin sprinting for track in february.
ZMA and a multivitamin daily will give me a lot of Zinc and Magnesium. Can this be harmful?
Regular diet, Protein Shakes, and BCAAs will give me a lot of amino acids. Am I taking too much? Should I take the recommend 18 tablets of BCAAs per day?
Beta-7, this sounds like it will help me with pumping iron and running sprints, will these 6 tabs a day cause any harm?
Essential Fatty Acids, one of the best nutrients your body can have. I read you should get 6-10g of fish oil a day, I take about 9g per of Omega complex (about 800mg Omega-3), will these be suitable for my needs?
#1 question, am i causing stress on my body from taking all these supplements?
any advice is greatly appreciated!
