  1. Depends on how much you want to spend. Here are my favorite supplements in order what I like and use the most.

    Whey protein
    AAKG (arginine any version is good for me)
    Creatine – not to often because I eat so much red meat.

    I was able to go from 135 lbs to 175 lbs in one summer. I ate like a horse, made sure I ate at least 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight, and I used Mike Mentzer High Intensity training routines (AKA heavy duty).

    Here is a youtube clip of one of the routines. clip is kinda boring, but gets the point across

    Part 1
    part 2
    part 3

    Now here is my whey protein schedule

    Right out of bed 50 gram shake/smoothie
    Immediately after workout 50 gram shake/smoothie
    Right before bed 50 gram shake/smoothie

    Then sometimes if I wake up in the middle of the night, I will go to the kitchen and have another 50 gram shake/smoothie.

    This blows up recovery and puts the mass on quick!

    Here is a WICKED gainer smoothie video


    Try and eat a couple of these mega gainer smoothies per day in addition to your normal diet and your sure to gain!!!

  2. Mr. Angry says:

    protein is a MUST for gaining muscle

    get a whey protein powder

  3. 1 to 1.5 grams of protein per pound of body weight. Supplement your normal diet with a scoop or 2 of whey protein powder immediately after workouts. Low fat cottage cheese is also a great source of protein to eat anytime.
