It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

The supplements which I personally think work:

Creatine
Protein shakes (as a food supplement, not replacement)
ECA stack
5-HTP (helps sleep, better dreams, better mood in the day)

The supplements which I personally think are beneficial to health, but not necessarily performance enhancing:

Fish Oil
Vitamin D
Zinc, Magnesium

Supplements which IMO are a waste of money, as they are generally unnecessary:

Pre-workout 'pump' supplements loaded with stimulants
Post-workout supplements filled with corn starch and dextrose

Supplements which I think are complete bullshit bogus bunk that many people still use:

"mass" supplements where thousands of calories are coming from corn starch
any weight loss supplement besides stimulant stacks

Right now, I take

-Various protein shakes (using as little pure whey as possible, going for more blends)
-Fish oil
-Vitamin D during the winter
-ZMA (helps sleep, and a magnesium supplement is pretty necessary for health)
-Essential Amino - expensive, but it's my caffeine fix in the morning. I add 1 scoop of
-BCAA powder

Trying to get away from the whacky proprietary expensive 'formulas' like pre-workout products, post-workout products, etc. Want to keep it clean as possible. I may try beta alanine again. I'm only off creatine now because I'm cutting and don't want to carry so much water weight.

I find that if you take ZMA and get under 7-8 hours of sleep you'll actually feel more tired the next morning. Try to get the minimum hours of rest and at the usual time you tend to fall asleep. Are you taking it 30min-1hr before sleeping or taking it right before you sleep before you body can absorb it? Not entirely sure but that could be a possible reason as well for your gorggyness?

LOL at the guy with the eye twitch from creatine, so much pump his eyelids have involuntary contractions.

Preworkout- no shotgun
Protein w a cup of oats
Post workout- protein, cup of milled flax seeds

Protein is optimum nutrition gold standard

Optimum nutrition optimen multivitamins throughout the day

It's oil, it won't mix with any liquid unless you emulsify it into a cream or paste sort of substance. What I do is take liquid at home, and caps for when I'm on the road.

Also, creatine isn't for a "little boost" when you're tired. You need to take it regularly to keep high creatine levels for it to be of any use at all. If you don't take it every day for at least 10 days, you aren't going to get full benefit from it. If you just take it once here and there, you won't get any benefit from it.

Some info on why whey should only be used in certain circumstances, and not as your main protein source.

Ive had a few people ask me about SierraSil so instead of replying to each PM individually, Ill post here.

A little back story: For about the last 4 or 5 years, every fall when the weather would start getting colder, I would develop real bad joint pain in my shoulders and knees. I have had nagging knee problems since I was a kid playing soccer, and my shoulders more recently, similar to what rotator cuff inpingement is. Every year, without failure, I could tell when the weather was getting cold in mid October. It was to the point where I could barely lift my arms laterally. The problem would come every october and go away every Feb-March I had been to the doctor and they didnt help other than to tell me to rest it. I have tried several other supplements and joint pain relief medications and they didnt help at all. This passed October in 2010, without failure, it started again and I decided I wasnt going to spend the winter like that again and started looking for something to help

My grandma heard it being advertized on the radio one day and told me about it. I found it at a place in Kelowna called Natures Fair. Its sort of a healthfood store full of vitamins and stuff, not sure what they have in Vancouver.

Its about $65 a bottle and has I think 180 pills. You take 3 a day. So it lasts for about 2 months.

I figured what the hell, Ill give it at shot but was definitely skeptical about it. I figured it was just another magic powder that didnt do shit. The bottle says you will notice it within 14 days, and I am dead serious, in 10 days, my joint pain had nearly completely gone away.

To add to my convincing, for 2 months, not one day did I have any form of joint paint. NONE. And remember, I had it every single day, every winter for the last 4-5 years, and had it for 2-3 weeks before I started taking it. My first bottle ran out in mid December, and I hesitated to buy another bottle, and sure enough, a week or 2 later, my shoulder pain started to creep back. I went out and got another bottle and within days, the pain went away. I continued to take it until the middle of February and I did not have a single day of joint pain.

It looks like a few NHL players are starting to get onboard with it now too. If you've got some nagging joint pain, give it a shot.

The only boge thing I see in that pic is the amino energy.. but I like that supplement myself as a caffeine drink so I am not gonna criticize

Just don't consider it as anything other than an alternative to red bull and you'll be good

Nope, not at all. I've tried numerous different products and brands over the past couple years but most times I've had the best results from products by Optimum Nutrition. I also based my decisions on product reviews on the bodybuilding.com forum, ratings and price.

I bought it as a preworkout supplement but I found myself having to take 4-6 scoops (3 servings) until I felt anything. Now I just take a scoop or two in the morning for an energy boost and use two scoops of Jack3D before I work out.
