Top Muscle Building Supplements video Review
In this video I will be discussing which muscle-building supplements I was taking and I will also reveal which ones are useful and which ones are useless. Before I get started I would like to say something that will be a recurring theme throughout this video.
Can supplements help? Yes. Do you need them to look the way you want to look?
No. Supplements are just there to save time and maybe account for 5% of your results…Maybe…Probably not. On that note…here we go
List of The Best supplements for MUSCLE GAIN
1- Protein Powder ( Orgain Organic Protein Powder )
Orgain Organic Creamy Chocolate Fudge Protein Powder is a naturally smooth and delicious nourishment drink with 21g of organic protein and 5g organic fiber per serving. USDA Organic, Gluten Free, Kosher, Vegan, Non-GMO, Soy Free. No artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.
First up is protein powder. So many times I’ve been asked by people who don’t know about what it takes to build muscle if I take protein shakes.
As if it’s so potent that if you drink a couple shakes your muscles will swell and get enormous. This is obviously far from the truth. The truth is that the most common type of protein powder used is whey protein powder.
And whey protein is derived mostly from cows milk. So if you know that you’re not going to get huge muscles from drinking cow’s milk and eating cheese all day then what makes you think that you’re going to get huge muscles from drinking protein shakes?
Benefits of Orgain Organic Protein Powder
Orgain Organic Sweet Vanilla Bean & Creamy Chocolate Fudge Protein Powder is a naturally smooth and delicious nourishment drink ideal for busy professionals, moms, athletes and students.
2- Whey Protein ( Optimum Nutrition’s Gold )
Which means that you’re getting your dose of whey protein anyway. If you hate whey protein so much then you can get egg protein, plant protein, and many more.
But I promise you that whey protein is not that bad. They even feed it to babies. That’s right gerber puts some whey in their formulas. They kind of hide it in their formula description, I don’t know why. Oh my god there’s gonna be jacked babies everywhere!
Optimum Nutrition’s Gold Standard 100% Whey uses pure Whey Protein Isolates as the primary ingredient.
Combined with ultra-filtered whey protein concentrate, each serving provides 24 grams of all-whey protein and 5.5 grams of naturally occurring Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) which are prized by athletes for their muscle building qualities.
With more than 20 tempting flavors to choose from, ON’s Gold Standard 100% Whey gives you plenty of ways to keep workout recovery interesting.
3- BCAA ( MusclePharm BCAA)
It’s great to take some BCAA’s pre or post workout and before bed would be a really great time to take some. Taking Branch chain amino acids can help increase protein synthesis.
MusclePharm BCAA 3:1:2 Energy delivers the ideal 3:1:2 BCAA ratio to minimize muscle damage and support lean body mass, while uniquely offering caffeine anhydrous, green tea extract, and panax ginseng to relieve drowsiness, restore mental alertness, and improve stamina.
BCAA 3:1:2 Energy is designed to support cognitive function while simultaneously promoting a state of anabolism to bring you closer to your performance goals!
How to take MusclePharm BCAA ?
Directions For BCAA 3:1:2: Take one (1) serving (2 scoops) of BCAA 3:1:2 mixed into 10-12 oz. of cold water.
Consume 1 serving one to three times daily. For optimal use, take between meals, 30-45 minutes before workouts, and/or immediately after workouts.
4- Creatine ( Optimum Nutrition Creatine Powder )
However, this will give you a boost of energy and strength and get you working out harder. There’s different types of creatine.
Creatine Monohydrate is the basic kind that has been researched the longest and has had great effects on me.
Kre alkalyn is another type of creatine that you don’t have to cycle. Kre alkalyn never worked for me, but I know some people who love it because it’s supposed to give you all the benefits without the water retention.
If you wan’t to get huge and don’t care about bloat get some cell tech hardcore. Always made me gain like 10lbs. Cell tech hardcore is probably not the healthiest, but bodybuilding’s hardly about health anymore, it’s about the gains right!
Creatine monohydrate is one of the most well-researched sports nutrition ingredients. When used in conjunction with regular weight training, it has been shown to support muscle size, strength and power.
One teaspoon of ON’s Micronized Creatine Powder provides five grams of 99.9 Percent pure creapure creatine monohydrate.
This unflavored powder mixes easily into water, juice or your post-workout protein shake to help you meet ambitious weight room goals.
5 – Multi-Vitamin
Next take a Multi-Vitamin/multi mineral supplement. Because if you’re American chances are you’re not getting your vitamins from fruits and veggies.

7- Beta alenine and L arginine
Beta alenine and L arginine are all you really need for a pre workout.
Occasionally you should throw in a pre workout or nitric oxide supplement to do an intense workout, but if you take pre workouts all the time they lose their effectiveness in amping you up.
L Arginine will help give you a huge pump and beta alenine will lower lactic acid buildup in the muscles. Which is pretty much all you need.
