One of the top questions I get asked by guys looking to build muscle is what supplements they can take to build muscle faster. The top question I get from guys and girls looking to lose weight is what fat burner or supplements they can take to get rid of their fat.
Supplements are only going to “supplement” what you are putting in your body and provide additional help on recovery and potentially more energy for your workouts.
Here are the basics that every serious person looking to change their body should be taking:
Proteins are essential nutrients for the human body. They are one of the building blocks of body tissue, and can also serve as a fuel source. Basically the most important part of your nutrition. You wont build significant muscle being short on your protein intake.
2. BCAA'S (Branch Chain Amino Acids)
Muscle is made up of protein, and protein is made up of macromolecules called amino acids. BCAAs are basically the grouping of the amino acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine. These amino acids are essential because they are not produced naturally by the body and have to be acquired through food or supplementation.
3. Fish Oil
It is known by many bodybuilders and athletes that omega-3 fatty acids (fish oil) can help you gain muscle, lose belly fat and prevent injuries.
4. Pre Workout/Creatine
Has there ever been a time where you just don't have the energy to workout, or mid way through a workout you just run out of juice? Well pre-workout can solve that! It's like the healthy version of a red bull or energy drink. I'm not just saying this, I actually took Rebellion at night before I thought I was doing to workout then decided not to. My body was like naw you gonna feel this energy lol.
This stuff is not joke!!
5. Fat Burner

Tea Rexx combined with effective exercise and nutrition strategies may help to optimize your fat loss potential.
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body and plays an important role in muscle protein development. During prolonged periods of intense exercise, glutamine levels may be depleted faster than the body can replenish them, which limits protein synthesis and can even encourage muscle breakdown.
7. Coffee - Fighter Fuel
