Other supps that could benefit

Apart from Pre-Work like No-Expode and Post-Work like Whey Protein.

What else would be a beneficial supplements to take? Something thats more general, rather than weight gaining supps or anything too specific.

Consider adding a fast acting carb source like maltodextrin or wazymaize to the post workout protein shake to replenish glycogen.

BCAA'S, Flaxseed Oil, Multivitamin are all things I would consider, as pointed out though all these things are to supplement a good diet.

BCAA's intra-workout are an awesome addition to your supplement regime. Something like our Excel or Xtend includes both BCAA's and Citrulline Malate, both of with are clinically proven to reduce muscle soreness, speed up recovery, and help you make gains session to session.

I find I get more benefit from BCAA's intra-workout than I do from creatine imho.

Hope that helps.

^agreed, intraworkout is a good idea.

Creatine too. Simple creatine monohydrate is pretty much always a solid choice, or if you want to step it up, I ran Ancient Strength a while back and as predicted, I saw some significant strength increases.

why say food on a thread that clearly asked what "SUPPS" that could benefit. food isnt a supplement. its food.

i would go for a slow release night time protein. look at other more specialist nutritional supplements like specific post-workout shakes, a staple protein and as i say a night time slow release blend. other than that i agree that an intra-workout BCAA and high GI carb product could help.

Made my p1ss turn illuminous green and sod all else.. 22+ pills a day

Only took for a month so not sure this was a decent trial but if you got the £££££ then go for it.. but works out pricey supp.. rather spend it on quality food

Thanks for all the fast replies.

I heard that Red Meat is good for protein/creatine/iron etc, So that may be an option from a natural source.

Doesn't Whey Protein have BCAA's and doesn't NO-Explode have Creatine?

Or is that a small amount and additional amount would be more beneficial

You'd struggle to get enough creatine from a natural source, so supplementation is recommend. Red meat is excellent as a source of iron though and highly bioavailable. I'd recommend an iron-free multi (e.g. NOW foods Adam or SAN Dr FeelGood) as a typical high protein diet tends to have plenty of iron.

What about having a stack like this Pre-Workout EAA's Post Workout: Carbs(Vitargo)+Electrolytes+Creatine Gluconate+BCAA's And Then Whey And Glutamine After Cardio

a sleeping product such as valerian has made all the diffrence to me, havent used it for a year + however with brutal training sessions valerian gives me a much deeper sleep, even though im sleeping the same amount of time the quality is completely diffrent, have also used gaba in the past but the effective dose started to rise to over 4g to feel the same effects, I started at 1g and was very good, so would advise to use sleep products sparingly.

Very true, recovery is very dependant on rest and sleep and this is an area which does not ever get much reference.

I rely on Need2Sleep which is Valerian based with other goodies - find it has a mild sedative effect in getting me off to sleep but I sleep far deeper with more vivid dreams and when I wake in the night for the loo I can get back to sleep again no problems which is often an issue for me.

BCAAs are a great addition. I take 10g about ten mins before i start then have another 10g in my water which i sip at. Wouldnt bother with the animal pak vits theyre a bit of a rip off imo.
