Whey protein. This isn’t even really a supplement since you’re actually eating protein, not a substitute or a pill, specially if you drink it with milk as you should. Is milk a supplement? You can go with most any brand, but this one is my favorite, it’s actually won awards for best supplement, tastes great, cheapest per gram of protein, and i like the fact that it has 5.5 grams of BCAA’S.

BCAA’S, again from Optimum Nutrition. These are basic amino acids that our bodies need especially when bodybuilding. BCAA’s help prevent your body from breaking down muscles for energy. In other words, it helps you keep the muscle you worked so hard to build. It’s even suggested to take a scoop before bedtime to prevent catabolism (muscle break down due to fasting) during sleep.
This particular one includes 5 grams of CREATINE, which is one of the very few supplements that pretty much everyone agrees on. Creatine helps your muscles get bigger by delivering water to them. The increase in water will help your muscle absorb the protein and carbs you’re eating after a workout. Take 5g before, and 5g after your workouts. I simply add a scoop to my protein shake above, before and after. I’m getting 10 g of BCAA’s which is super for muscle building!

Fish oil Omega 3. Contains Omega 3 fatty acids that help lower your cholesterol, improve bone health, reduce inflammation or ‘muscle soreness’, and even helps your body reduce fat. This last benefit may be because your body is getting a daily supply of fat, and therefore does not need to hang on to other fat for dear life. Yes, this is the good fat you’ve heard about.
