Been outta the supplement game awhile, suggestions?
I used to supplement heavy 5+ years ago, I've been lifting fairly solid for the past year now (it's been an on and off thing since 04'.) I was referenced Jack3D about a year ago, and I'm really digging it. Besides that the only other supplement I take is Dymatize Elite protein. I'm looking to add something else and A LOT of new stuff has come out in the past 5 years so I'm looking for suggestions.

Creatine Monohydrate, Protein, Multivitamin, and Fish Oil. Those are about the only things worth taking, and I can't think of anything that has come out to change my mind. These few I've mentioned are OK, then there are a ton of others that are a complete waste of money (99% of the stuff being sold).

Kev is right. There isn't much but great advertising in the supplement world other than what he listed.

those are pretty solid key supps, I would have to agree. There are a lot out there that is just pure marketing, but depending on you fitness goals, you could also look into Geranium, L-carnitine, CLA (fat loss) and others such as glutamine and BCAA's.
Just started using geranium in my pre-workout stack, mix that with some caffeine and you have one kick-ass combo!

I think the primary value of BCAA's is when used with fasted training
. Otherwise I'm not sure they would make much difference as long as you are getting enough protein with your diet.

BCAAs are great in a calorie defecit to prevent catabolism and keep calories down - rest of the time sufficent protein intake and use of regular whey is more than enough to obtain amino acids.

A lot of research on beta-alanine that looks good. I've read that the results from use are better on a long term and with a higher rep range (10-14).
Gaspari nutrition has some good stuff. Recently tried Vasotropin stacked with SuperPump Max. Really like that, pump was like I have never seen but the must haves are still creatine, multi, protein, and EFA's.
