Supplements!!

So my order arrived today from Bodybuilding.com. I purchased a 30 serving tub of Cellucor C4 and a six pound tub of ON Nitro-Core. The taste of the protein is ok, as is usually the case. I am a pretty big fan of Optimum Nutrition, however, and the casein and fiber in the protein is a huge plus. I was either going to get N.O. Xplode, Superpump, or C4. I've gone through many tubs of N.O. Xplode and it's an amazing pre-workout supplement. I heard some good reviews and some bad reviews about Superpump, so I decided to give C4 a shot (although I did buy a single stick pack of Superpump so I could try it out). So far the C4 is pretty nice. It's got creatine, beta alanine, arginine, and an "explosive energy blend," which I'm sure is caffeine and taurine or something. I do like the fact that it only has 100mg of caffeine per serving. I can't really give too good a review yet as I've only tried it once, and since I've been on a three month hiatus from supplements it worked very well. There was a slight tingly sensation in my body when I was working out though, which happens sometimes with pre-workout stimulants. Anyway, I'm very happy overall, they threw in two protein free samples and a free sample Speed Shot, which is what they sell at my gym for like three dollars (ripoff). My total, including shipping, was $60. I am 6 feet tall and weight 165 lbs at the moment. I'm 21 and this is the first summer I can hit all of the bars, so I'm definitely going to look good. :)

  12. I've never used supplements. I'm not too tempted at the moment either. I don't really work out at the gym. Just cardio work outs (jogging) and push ups/sit ups and stuff.

    Could you maybe do a post on good ways to gain muscle at home? I'd love to beef up a bit but don't have any equipment or want to go to the gym just yet. Thanks!
