    Just want to know if there are any proffessional bodybuilders on here that can recommend any supplements that work for them?


    I currently am taking GNC Mass I.V. and Muscle Tech Cell-Tech Pro Series.

    I have met pro BB's over the years and I can tell you dude most of them hardly use any supplements...they eat lots of good food train very very hard and take steriods/growth hormone, some do use whey protein shakes to help meet there caloric/protein requirments...I hate how young kids blow all there money because they see so and so pro BB in the magazine and think they take/took that product to get big!LOL...I knew a very well known pro from the 90's who told me straight up I don't use 'there' products I just get paid to say I do... all that aside... I do find taking Whey Protein and Creatine to be the 2 best supplements along with maybe a good Multi VIt Pak, other then that It's food and hard work! good luck with your training!

    I was trying to make a point about the misconception that young guys just starting out have about the bodybuilders in magazines, thinking they got to there size and development by using so and so supplement...when that's not the case. is it okay to take steriods....that's a debate I could care less about getting into with people who are not educated on the topic...most people are too set in there ways and brainwashed by the media to understand.

    I think using steroids comes down to making a choice for yourself.

    If you are okay with it, then I don't see the problem. I don't think anyone else can tell you whether that is "okay" or not.

    I will give you this advice though, I would just stick to a basic creatine monohydrate powder thats uses 'creapure' and a whey protein powder...I don't like any of GNC's products and Muscletechs Cell-Tech is basically sugar and creatine...too much $$$/over hyped in my opinion, Muscletechs creatine monohydrate was very good when it first hit the market in the mid 90's, but they don't make it anymore...

    My current stash... I have gone over board from time to time.

    You may find some competitive amateurs around here, but I doubt RJ or any other internet board is the place to look for pro bodybuilders

    Food, food and more food man. The $50-$70 you spend on a weight gainer can be spent on actual food that will help you a lot more icon_smile.gif.

    I think the basic supplements you need are a good multivitamin (very overlooked supplement imo), and a good isolate protein for post-workout.
    Everything else is pretty much extra. But if you are dead set on getting a "gainer" type supplement, look for a carb supplement rather than an actual "weight gainer".

    Best of luck bro!
