Highest quality supplements. Used by today’s top professional athletes.
One of the most common questions asked is whether someone needs to take supplements in order to build muscle and see results. It is a good question and one that has two completely different answers depending on the person asking it. In this video, I explain to you 5 reasons you need to take supplements and when you never should take them. If you can’t deal with brutal honesty however, I would advise you not to watch, as some feelings may be hurt.
To determine whether or not you are a candidate for supplementation you have to start with your experience level and current condition. If you are just starting out and are relegated to lifting 5 pound dumbbells for most of your exercises, you are likely not ready for supplements. You can gain far more benefits focusing on building up your strength and foundation while learning proper form and the best way to train than with stuffing your face with supplements.
The same can be said if you have allowed your diet and nutrition to put you grossly overweight. Supplements are not your savior. You first must figure out how to rededicate yourself to your nutrition so that you can lose enough weight to make supplements a viable part of the discussion once again to take you and your results to the next level.
Next you have to ask yourself if you are motivated enough to take supplements. Some people view supplementation as a way to be lax with the rest of their fitness and nutrition plan. They figure that as long as they are taking the supplements that they don’t have to worry much about everything else. Couldn’t be further from the truth. On the other hand, sometimes the act of supplementing makes you much more accountable for the rest of your actions. In this case, it can be a great advantage to helping you stay on track.
If stress is a big part of your life, be it from your work or family, supplements can become even more necessary to help keep you on track and combat that. We all know that proper nutrition and fueling can go a long way towards helping your body fight fatigue and breakdown. If stress is heavy in your life then you would particularly want to look into supplements to help keep you healthy and consistent with your nutrition in the face of schedule disruption.
Finally, ask yourself if you think that you can get all the benefits of supplements from food alone. If you think so, I can tell you in most cases you are wrong. For instance, there is simply no practical way to get as much creatine as you would need to experience its benefits from food alone. I said practical. Sure, you may be able to do it in theory, but when you consider the roadblocks that I present to you in the video you quickly realize this won’t work.

I just ordered the base pack from the Athlean X website and friends and family are discouraging me from continuing because they think that it would be detrimental on my liver since I already consume lots of protein. How can I counter them
there are lots of supplements on the market. why not making a chart showing for each categories (vitamins, minerals, strengh enhancer, omega 3, joints, dna enhancer, hgh increase, mental alertness, memory, fat loss, muscle growth), which supplements is good for which physiology and why?
An old vid but i have a question. Im 36, male and have gone from 96kg with no muscle down to 85kg and about 16 percent body fat give or take on the day of the scan. Unfortunately although it has reduced i still have an unhealthy amount of visceral fat that i am trying to reduce. I train 5 days a week and have a good balanced diet and rarely drink or indulge in fatty or sweet treats.
i watched this and thought maybe i should start taking creatine to get. More. Out of each session. But im really trying to burn that energy reserves so adding to my ATP would potentially be counter productive. Having trouble getting an answer from someone who knows and isn't speculating. Any advice given would be greatly appreciated.
Ps my progress and success has been to a large part this channels so thank you regardless.
For me and others creatine killed my sex drive and interfered with my deep sleep portion of sleep.
Once i got off it my deep sleep returned and the other is still improving.
For the sex drive, i am in my sixties so maybe for you younger studs it doesn't matter, even though some have said it did.
This was the Kre-alkalyn version of creatine. So you may want to think about that.
Was the change in deep sleep harmful? Beats me. But it definitely was the cause. I have been tracking my sleep now for years with my Fitbit(s). Maybe it was actually doing something good for my brain. Hard to say.
Did it seem to help my strength and energy? Yes it did seem to and i believe it did. YMMV. I felt it was a risk and not worth the risk for me.
Stay well out there!
supplements work. difficult thing is finding what works for you.i went through years of trial and error. been naturally skinny, a good balance of the right nutrition and supplements and you will eventually see the gains. its not a sprint, its a marathon :)
My question exacly.. If money isn't an issue can i start taking it from day 1 in the gym? Won't it help build better lean muscle than without? A lot of people tell me i should start taking after 3 even 6 months!
SARMS Good, Bad, Side Effects? Specifically S23 Venom and Revolution PCT. I know nothing about these supplements and my son just started taking them so I'm concerned. Please, anyone can chime in. Much appreciated! - Tony
I wanted to know how long have you been taking creatine and do you ever stop taking it for weeks or months? I am 35 yrs old and have been working out religiously for years and years. I am now at a point where I look good but know I would have to do things different to get bigger changes at this point because although I get good pumps and great workouts, I have kinda leveled off. I wanted to know are there any cons of taking creatine? I heard water weight/ hair loss possibly. There is so much info on the internet that contradicts the other so I don't know if im just better off without it and just stick with what I have been doing and just be happy with what I got. Do you take creatine everyday? Thank you for the info
what supplements are recommended for a vegan, I get plenty of protein from plant based protein powders but I'm unsure what vegan supplements are out there that are acceptable for pre/post work outs. I've seen a few but it seems that there are many products that have a few contradictory ingredients in them, like ...sugar or artificial sweeteners which i pretty much stay completely away from. I have also watched vegan power lifters that are just super strong but trying to contact them is more difficult than renting a room in the white house. And as far as nutrition goes it would be nice to see the Athlean-x channel put up some videos for people who are whole food plant based consumers.
Im not just starting it, but i am out of shape still, i started working out nearly 2 years ago, and i started at 403 pounds, now at 247, probably lost more cause if muscle weighing more than fat, but I've stuck at the same muscle for awhile
Bench press barely went up, and I've been good for having natrual protiens, chicken breasts, fish, eggs etc, changed my workouts a few times this summer but im just stuck, i am having organic protein powder now but i don't think its really cutting it
so. i do lot of sports and end up really tired and with all sort of soreness or light wounds, i dont have a good balanced nutrition and i am stuck at 73kg about 6f tall (skiny). i totally think i am a good candidtae for 1- Multivitamin and 2- mass gainer shake (i am bad with meats). althou i am more worried about ligaments and joints than muscle...
Been 2 weeks of taking creatine and doing the workouts on this channel, already seeing the most gains of my life so far, it’s unbelievable how much u notice the muscle grow if you use smaller weights and isolate the muscle just like Jeff always says to do
Every supplement video I’ve found gives advise and recommendations with a grain of salt.. you know there’s a slight controversy surrounding them so you (General you) take a minimalist approach when recommending what to take.
I work at GNC, I love and see a lot of value in supplementation. A video I would love to see someone put out would be, to embrace supplementation and show a huge, grand stack someone could add to their workout regimen to really MAXIMIZE the workout through maximum supplementation... idk that’s just my two cents, it’s just everything you listed seems relatively mundane to someone in the supplement game such as myself. What about some really obscure ones? Wow us
Hey man I had a thoracic injury from a car accident so I’m waiting for to get better. So I’m not able to lift weights, till it’s better. So I just been doing the treadmill every day. Am I gonna lose my gains of muscle if I don’t continue to drink protein shakes, during this time? Because I feel like I’m wasting money drinking them when I’m not doing any weight training right now, probably for the next month or two.
Ok so I'm 240 atm just lost 30 pounds in the last 6 weeks. Eating healthy and going to gym 5 times a week lifting and cardio. I got out of the army after weighing 185 now I'm 240 trying to get down to the 200s again. I'm alittle broken joints back neck what should I buy.
Biased comment from someone who sells supplements. I took creatine and had bleeding from my guts. Creatine is made artificially (China being the main supplier) and has impurities. Your body produces creatine, taurine ( which are non-proteic amino acids ). Is much safer to take whey protein. Best of all: exercise, sleep, eat, fast and repeat. ( PhD in Biochemistry, former university professor in Nutrition)
yes Doc Creatine is naturally in Meat sources and Creatine works if you dont buy it from walmart..(hence your bleeding issues).
And Equate is not the safest products either
Made in China is all over Walmart
I dont need a PhD to tell you That
I just DONT have a gpod appetite as I age. I force myself to eat. But with Protein/Creatine powder, I gain the food my body needs to grow.
Is it ok to go to STRAIGHT protein, with no creatine?
Will I see any loss in weight or muscle from no creatine??
You refer to hard ass work. At the moment i work out 1 hour per day for 5 out of 7 days. 1/2 hour cardio burning roughly 250-300 calories and 1/2 hour strength. I work my muscle groups to failure in that time. Is this considered hard ass work? Or should i be doing more? My goal is gto go from my fatty 210 lb to my lean 150 lb
Creatine is dangerous for some of us. I had blood work done and found out my BUN levels were way too high (creatinine, the residual creatine that the kidneys try to evacuate from the body). So be careful with that
On today’s market there are many products with such orientation, but most popular is advertised brand Viagra tablets.
Appropriate tests show a positive result, which is about thirty per cent of all subjects. But here it is necessary to take into account the psychological aspect, since a positive result will not be at the unwillingness of sexual intimacy.
Cialis is yet another pill for impotence. Cialis and Viagra can be called brothers. Effectiveness of tablet lasts for about 30 hours. Cialis action when compared to Viagra, is faster. Cialis acts on the walls of blood vessels, preventing them from relaxing, thanks to the influence of substances that trigger it.
Cialis is admissible to the use of alcoholic beverages. The drug takes effect quickly, and the action is very long. What is best Cialis Viagra or Levitra
