4. Creatine Monohydrate
Creatine has been a useful bodybuilding supplement for decades and is the most scientifically studied workout enhancer. It is naturally produced by the body, where it is stored to provide energy and strength during intense exercise. Creatine supplementation (usually 5-15 grams daily) will allow you additional reps in the gym increasing in overall muscle mass and strength. No loading is required, simply take as directed.
5. Whey Protein Isolate
Since it can be rather difficult to get all your daily protein from food alone, supplementation will be important. Though there are various forms of whey protein on the market, Whey Protein Isolate is the purest form and it contains a larger amount of pure protein than other whey products. Protein is extremely important when attempting to build muscle and strength. Without adequate protein, usually 0.75-1 gram per body weight, you will not see significant gains in the gym.
