Worked out with weights most of my life. Currently work out at Planet Fitness. I was curious what supplements if any you use. I use:
Androfury pre workout
Creatine
NytroWhey Ultra Protein
Myozene post workout Protein

I started lifting around age 13. Went hardcore in high school,was on the weightlifting team,and have remained active in bodybuilding still,at age 48. The only supplement I use is whey protein. I make sure to eat a lot of red meat,eggs every day,and drink about a gallon of whole milk a day. No supplements will ever touch what those foods will give you. I also take two different kinds of multi vitamins a day.

I'm off and on. Just started back on. Not taking any supplements currently but usually take whey protein. Have taken the good micronized creatine in the past but didn't seem to do anything for me.

Coffee makes me hyper, no pre work out stuff for me.

Have gym in my basement.

Creatine in some athletes can end it major muscles tears even complete bi-sections. Most tolerate it well.

I have a PhD in biomechanics and have done some contract work for supplement companies (pre-workouts) and published a number of reserach studies on supplements. That said, I know the ins and outs of creatine pretty well. There is no mechanism behind how creatine works, nor any reported instances, where the quoted statement above has been shown to be true.

There are a lot of misconceptions about creatine, even today after 25 years of it being very popular and widely used. It is the most researched supplement, by far. The only side effect that can be considered negative is weight gain due to water retention in muscles.

I incorporate heavy weights into my workout routine, but no longer do just weights.

Haven't done supplements in a while since most taste cloyingly sweet. I'd rather save the calories and eat another steak or chicken breast. LOL.

Now, pre workout drinks are something else. They work amazingly well but are also addicting. The times you don't use them, you feel like your workout was weak and feeble.


Lately I have been doing mostly body-weight exercises and find them challenging enough. Best part is you can't ever really get too strong for your own weight so it's always a good option.

pre workout with creatine, gallon of water, low carb isolate whey with unsweetened almond milk.

Benched 200 pounds for the first time in my life last week.

Goal is to bench my weight which is 210.

Met-Rx Meal Replacement bar after workout, Chocochip cookie dough recipe ONLY. 28 grams of decent protein. Followed with a KIND bar if want something else. At least 16 oz of water with the Met-Rx MRP since they're super dense and concentrated. One a Day 'Men Over 50' formula multi-vitamin and mineral + a magnesium malate tablet in the a.m. after a complete breakfast.

I have lifted since age 17. 54 now.

I get resistance training at least three days a week and cardio (indoor bike and HIIT training on a bike) another three days most weeks.

Resistance training helps keep the arthritis in my shoulder at bay. No more pull ups or Cross Fit/Boot Camp type training until there is some fix for the shoulder.

I eat food. My body turns it into useful tissues. No need for supplements.

My Dr does have me on 5000iu of Vitamin D3 and 1000mg of Fish Oil daily. But no pre-workout or protein supplements.

^ This. Used Creatine back in the very early 2000's, when my routine was skewed towards heavy lifting vs cardio. I personally saw no real benefits, and water retention is very real....
