Weight Lifting Supplements

I have been weight lifting on and off for several years. My last supplement I used was Animal Test which had a main ingredient of Andro. But now Andro has become illegal. I am now back at the gym 5 days a week. Without Andro things are going slow. My question is, has anyone ever tried Tribulus Fuel Stack or Tribulus Fuel Extreme.

And please, if you are against the use of supplements, don't comment. I'm looking for those that are weight lifters that look for that extra something.

Re: Weight Lifting Supplements

Re: Weight Lifting Supplements

Here's what I started using a couple months ago:

-50mg DHEA
-500mg Tribulus (at least 40% Saponins)
-Vitamin C
-Vitamin E
-500mg L-Glutamin
-200g Whey Protein (I weigh 160lbs)

I take all of this daily, regardless of if I work out or not. Only exceptions are the C and E. I take C every other day and E like once a week (when I remember). The first month I started supplementing with this concoction, I noticed a little more definition but way more strength. All my repping weight went up like 15lbs in that month, which I've never been able to do before. After about two more weeks, my brothers (individually) noticed that I was "bigger", although the only thing I've noticed is definition. When I started using this stuff, I weighed about 153-155 consistently. Just recently I've made it to 160. Conclusion: Works pretty good for strength and definition, but I (still) can't put mass on to save my damn life.

Re: Weight Lifting Supplements

Well you've got the protein in your diet which is good for mass building. How many reps and sets are you doing at the gym? To mass build you want to lower your reps and go higher weight. I used to do 3-5 reps max with higher weight. Now I am trying to get the definition. I weigh 173.8. I looking to get down to about 165 with good definition. When I was at 155 I was cut, but like you said I couldn't get bigger. So I hired a trainer for 3 months to show me what I was doing wrong. He showed me how higher weight and lower reps would help get me over that peak. And using Animal Test helped alot.

So now I am doing lower weights and 8-10 reps, 3 sets of each exercise. I usually go as follows:

Day 1: Biceps, triceps, and shoulders
Day 2: Chest, Back, and abs
Day 3: Legs
I include at least 20 minutes of cardio each workout. But as I said I am trying for definition now.

When I was mass building I would do the same workout routine with just higher weights and lower reps.

Re: Weight Lifting Supplements

^^^ Nope. Not yet anyways. I think kidney pain is more associated with Creatine anyways.

I wasnt even using the creatine and I was experiencing it. *Was taking like 150g of protein a day in powder spaced out a few times a day and 2 multi vitamins. *I drank close to 2.5 gals of water a day and I would wake up with kidney pain a few times a week. *I cut it back to one shake in the morning and one at night. *each shake had like 40g of protein. *I really didnt notice a decline in recovery period so i stuck with it. *I was also weighing about 195 at 5'11 which is bigger than you. *I guess some people can handle it better.

Re: Weight Lifting Supplements

That's weird. I've never heard of protein causing kidney pain. Pretty much everything else, but not protein. I quit using Creatine because my kidneys/piss was getting weird, for lack of a better term. When I upped my protein use I thought I noticed my stomach would be a little unsettled at times, but that's pretty normal, so I've read/heard.
