    Let's see. There's the

    1. Pre-workout, during workout, post-workout drinks.
    2. Protein shakes. Occasional weight-gainers.
    3. Glutamine for anti-catabolism. *
    4. Glucosamine + Chondroitin + MSM for joints. *
    5. Multi-Vitamin.
    6. CLA + Omega3,6 + Flaxseed.
    7. Green Tea Extract for occasional pick-me-uppers. *

    I'd say approximately $200~300 for me? Is that a lot? How much do you guys spend?

    Note: * indicates non-essentials for me.

    I think that's a lot of money, but everyone has different objectives. If you feel you need help in all those areas, then do it.

    I take a lot of fish oil (2g a day), multi, vitamin C, vitamin D, zinc, and probiotics. I probably spend around $20 a month, tops. You can get a good deal and high quality on vitacost.com.

    that's a shitload of money. !
    i probably spend . $50 - 60 . The stuff i get lasts me way more than a month.
    Protein powder i only take once a day and sometimes i skip if i have enough good food in the house.
    multi vitamin : $35 , lasts 2 months.
    tribulus : same as above.
    omega 3-6-9-12-15-whatever : they're cheap. bought a high quality bottle for $35 and it will last me 3 months. I buy cheaper usually but i wanted to try that one.

    no more than 45-50 a month... I'm not using as many as I've been using before... just a good multivitamin and Omega 3-6-9. I'll probably get a nice fat burner for the summer but that's up in the air.

    200$ is alot of money but if they are working for you, more power to you bro!

    LOL umm...it motivates me to workout harder at the gym so that not all the money goes to waste. ***blush*** But then I love to eat it's my weakness. Oh well what can I say? To my defense I did lose about 5% of fat in half year though. I don't spend this much $$ all year round, only when I'm cutting.

    you shouldn't be taking weight gainers when youre cutting. its full of fat.

    whats your preworkout, during workout, and post workout drinks?

    you should probably get some more information about all this stuff youre putting into your body. You practically listed every type of supplement out there. Unless youre a body builder or your nutrition is really lacking, there is no need for most of that.

    haha of course I'm not taking weight gainers when I'm cutting. It'd be like driving with the brakes on.

    Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM really is for when my knee joints bother me (which hasn't for the past five months, fingers crossed). Green Tea is to substitute coffee because I get the jitters from caffeine. Glutamine really is just for *when* I have a long grueling workout ahead (which I probably take twice a month?). I only take the omegas and flaxseed when I haven't had quality fats like nuts or fish. So I'm not as big as a drug mule as you might think I am, lol.

    Right now I'm not doing preworkout prep except just quick carbohydrate 1h before lifting, usually some whole-wheat bread. During workout I'm doing Intravol from Muscletech and for postworkout I'm on Halo. That's where the $$ seems to be going icon_sad.gif This shit's expensive!

    lol dude you read my mind. I keep questioning if I need all this and that's why I started the thread. thx for the input!
