Skierboy26 saidI am trying to get bigger -- my frame is really small so I know I need supplements. Problem is, it's so hard to ascertain what to take and what is a waste of time. Right now I am drinking protein shakes after my workout -- and a casein protein shake at night. I also take a flax seed oil pill twice a day but that's it. I heard Jake Gyllenhaal took Omega 3, 6, 9 for his workout plan for his newest movie (which looks awful btw). Anyway, what supplements does everyone take? What are helpful in growing???
You've got the most important parts in place. Be sure you are well-fed prior to your workout, and I would add a pre-workout shake like SuperPump 250 about 20 minutes before. Both these things will enable you to lift heavier and with greater concentration, which will lead to bigger gains. Consume protein throughout the day, especially in the morning when you wake up.
Of course, all that depends on you pushing yourself in your workout. Muscles must be worked to failure. The amount of weight is not what matters; what matters is pushing past whatever your limits are that day, while maintaining absolutely correct form. If you can, have a friend help you do forced reps, after you can no longer lift the weight on your own. And don't do the same routine every week; keep the muscles confused.
Also, make sure you drink lots of water throughout the day and get enough sleep at night.
Be patient, be consistent, and you will grow!
