I’ve been lifting for a decent amount of time and have been taking a number of supplements that seem to have had little or no effect. Im a pretty small guy (5’8 165) and Im just wondering what supplements I should be taking if im trying to put on mass. I was thinking about Methoxy-7 ? Hope someone can help…
Oblivious to the supplements you’re already taking and your eating habits, I’ll make my suggestions. I’m a small guy as well - 0", 160lbs (can you say hardgainer?) - however just over a month after I started supplementing I started to get comments on my increased size. Through discussions on the forum and directly with my brother I came to learn that the BIGGEST thing to focus on is not so much the supplements; it’s your eating. You should be taking in about 4000 calories a day in 5-6 meals. If you’re not quite sure how much that is, it’s equal to one HELL of A LOT of food! As far as supplements go, my recommendations are as follows:
*a shake in water as soon as you get up with 20g of protein and 30g of sucrose (table sugar)
*2 fish oil caps, 1 multi-vitamin tab, and 200 UI of vitamin E; all right before your first meal
*a very dilute mixture of dextrose(corn sugar) in water during your workout
*a shake directly after your workout containing 30g of protein, 40g of dextrose, 3g of creatine, and a pinch of sodium (table salt) in water
*a shake before bed, in milk, containing 20g of protein, another 2 fish oil caps, another 200 UI of vitamin E, and 2-3 tablespoons of flax oil
*a shake, in water, containing 20g of protein when you get up to pee in the middle of the night (optional)
Note: I live in Canada so it’s harder for me to get Surge, but if you can get it, DO IT! There’s tons of information about Surge on the site, so check out some articles:

Hope this helps bud! Any questions; feel free to ask!
