#1

I'm curious to know what T-Nation members are taking as their supplements. This may stop threads like what supplements should I take ext. If you want you can give some background on what you're training for ext.

So to start it off I'll go first

  1. Spike Shooters
  2. Creatine
  3. HOT-ROX Extreme
  4. Multi Vitamin
  5. Flameout
  6. Tribulus Gold

My Biotest-only supplement list which rotates with non-Biotest products based on how much $ I can spend on supps:

Flameout
Carbolin 19
TRIBEX
BCAAS
Metabolic Drive
Spike, every now and again


#3

Right Metabolic Drive powder and bars....makes it way easier to get that eating every 3 hours in while at work if you have something convenient like that I find
Multivitamins
Some HOT-ROX....just for lil energy boost a bit before working out


#4

Green Tea
Fish Oil
Metabolic Drive
TRIBEX Gold

I'm surprised at how many of you guys aren't taking Surge, for me its the most essential supplement recovery is unreal...

Anyway here's my list:

Fish Oils

And occasionally I pop around 2g's of L-Tyrosine pre-workout.
I am contemplating trying Acetyl L-carnitine have heard good things,

I do make my own bastardized version of Surge (I didn't mention that i guess).

I try to make it as close to Surge as possible too, off the top of my head 54 grams carbs (malto), 25g protein (whey hydro/iso), and a good dose of BCAA's (which I take peri workout anyways). I know it's not exact, but gotta work with what I got first.


#10

100% whey isolate
Creatine monohydrate
Multi-vitamins and minerals
Fishoil
ZMA

I drink a litre of green tea everyday, but I could hardly call that a supplement.
Also waiting to try out Tribulus Gold.


#11

Multi-vitamins and minerals
Zinc / Magnesium before bed
fish oil (15g/day)
maca powder
Vitamin C 500mg
Vitamin D 3000IU if its a cloudy day.
HOT-ROX Extreme (will switch to Alpha Male after i loose some weight).


#12

Fish Oil

Eat mostly Carbs both Pre & post Workout. Use HOT-ROX during Carb depletion periods.


#14

Before my injury I was also using HOT-ROX (which not only give me an amazing kick in the ass, but I think I actually gained muscle in 'em) and TRIBEX to aid recovery a bit.
