My reliance on supplements has definitely increased over the last few years, due to my focusing on competition more than just being a gym rat, and more importantly, due to age just starting to be somewhat noticeable on my recovery levels, joint health, and general intensity in the gym.
Current "pill" intake:
-Flameout - can't live without these! Usually take 2-3 with each feeding
-Curcumin - great one-two punch with the fish oils. 2 pills, 3x a day
-Alpha Male - These really have an effect on me. 2 pills 2x a day, 5 days on 2 off. Never was completely sold on Trib products when they first came on the scene, but they seem to work for me now (old,.. getting so very old -lol)
-Receptormax - Another product I was skeptical of. I will stress though that at this point/level in my training, I feel very confident that everything is squared away as far as diet and training. Don't expect miracles, but I definitely noticed an improvement in overall body composition adding these into the mix 2 months ago. 3 pills, 4x a day (3x 30 mins before meals, 1x 30 mins before training)
Guess I'm a pretty serious pill popper... oh well, I can live with it. Certainly better than smoking and drinking (and probably a bit cheaper too).
