While supplements might be a great complement to building muscle, before you go spend your hard earned cash on nutrition bodybuilding supplements you really should take a serious look at your diet first.
Often getting your diet in line with your training and bodily requirement may remove the need to use any supplements at all.
If you really think about it people where building great physiques well before the supplement came along and took the industry by storm. Supplements themselves are relatively new compared to body building itself.
Do you really think that Eugene Sandow (often dubbed as the father of modern day body building) used them?
To be honest with you as a personal trainer, I’d never recommend a supplement if someones diet isn’t in check. As a rough guide for diet you really should be aiming for 30% – 50% in protein based foods, 30% – 50% in carbohydrate based foods and 20%-40% with healthy fat based foods.
Now I’m not totally against supplements as I think that they could be a great part of a strong muscle building nutrition and exercise plan. But just remember that they complement your diet and training plan and not the other way around.
