Here's my story:

About 6 weeks ago I started working out again after an 11 year absence(therabouts). I'm on a 5 day split, which has yielded great results for me in the past (my junior year in high school I went from 95 pounds to 135). I'm a single father, so going to the gym isn't really an option (I would have to pay daycare), so I invested in some home equipment. So far, I have a good bench with varying inclines and declines, olympic wieghts, and dumbells (olympic receptacle style). I'm kinda old school, I've never used suppliments. Now I'm on the Mega Men Sport vitamins. I was wondering if I should work in some protein shakes? Or would it be better to wait on that for a while. Which ones are good? Are there any which serve multiple functions? What about creatine or other suppliments? I'm currently 5'7" and 170, and I have a nice little spare tire to get rid of, so should I work in some fat burner for a little while until it's gone? Should I work in some cardiovascular, would that help me shed some fat? What kinds of cardio can you do without equipment? I do martial arts right now, that works up a lil sweat, but not too much.... Any suggestions would be welcome, thanks.

Thumbs up

some protein shakes would be a nice supplement, and for right now, probably the only supplement i'd recommend.

if you wanna firm up and put on a few lbs of lean muscle while losing the tire, you're gonna need to work on both the diet and your exercise regiment

for the diet you can start cutting back on processed carbs and sugars while upping your protein intake 1-1.5g/lb should be plenty for now.

as for cardio, you can do sprints, long distance jogs, goto a stadium and run the bleachers, etc. just get creative.

for the workouts, i'd recommend doing as many compound movements as possible. bench/incline are good, pullups and some type of squats would be great. you'll make good progress pretty quickly since you're just getting back into it after a long layoff.

lots of great peeps here that can help answer any questions you have.

The most important thing is to learn what a Post Workout Shake is?
There is tons of great info on training and diet on this forum.

I've never understood the hard on so many are getting over NO products, it's like buying a sunless tanner, it fades....

Leucine, Citrulline Malate, PCn, etc.... There's so many better products out there that are available in bulk for cheap.

Without a dialed in diet and training routine though, it's all a waste IMO

You said it!

Only leucine should be taken with the other BCAA's.

Spellcheck says: "supplement". Heck, it's even in the title of the forum.
