I'm not sure if this has been done here before, but I'm curious to see what others use for supplements.
A few guidelines:
- I'm mostly talking about workout supplements, not things like vitamins, fish oils, etc...
- Give us the name of the product and how long you've been using it, as well as what your schedule of use looks like.
- If you're using something and you like it, let us know! I am always open to trying new things for better performance.
- This is not a thread to debate the ethics of taking said supplements, with that said, I am not open to discussion of steroid/banned substance use.
I want to see some constructive conversation and create a place where anybody can come to find information about beginning or adding in supplements to their workouts.
For me personally, I use a few things to help me improve and see strength gains while training:
Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Protein, 2 years - 1 serving at least once a day in addition to after every ride.
GNC Pro Performance Beta Alanine, 2 years - 4 Caps 1 hour before a ride/workout.
Sport Legs, 3 years - 3/4 Caps before or after a ride depending on how my legs are feeling or if I feel that I am going to hurt the next day.
I'm interested to see how this goes.
