Stop worrying about supplements.. and just workout. If you're trying to get big.. eat eat eat and go hard in the gym. Only when you reach a certain point should you start taking supplements.
Truth. I've been working out for nearly 2 years now, started by just doing whatever I could at home with a pull up bar and a pair of dumbbells before joining a gym. I remember my biggest mistake for the 1st few months was not going hard at the gym. My 2nd biggest mistake was not eating enough. I was a mere 120lbs freshmen year of high school, not gonna lie it feels unreal looking at old pictures now.. even my friends tease me about it. For ectomorphs out there having trouble putting on weight, I suggest force feeding yourself. As nasty as it may sound you will put on mass. The way I looked at it was if I was feeling hungry I was doing it wrong, never let yourself feel hungry. Don't care too much about what you eat, call it a bulk and eat whatever you desire. I'm not a believer on "clean" bulks, a bulk is a bulk. Establish a good routine and be consistent, a lot of people I know want to get fit or get good muscle too but without pushing yourself and just eating you won't get far. A lot of people say theyre going to do everyday they can, but after a few weeks of hitting the weights hard they give up.. Since I started working out, I must have had over 6 workout partners come and go.. I tell them that they sure view it as a lifestyle, something to enjoy, instead of a long journey.
For supplements stick to the basics at first.. no need for pre-workouts or anything big yet. I suggest just getting a quality whey protein, fish oil, daily multi-vitamin and creatine. It's true you dont need any supps to build a good body but it certainly makes it easier.. I've seen people take the all everything natural route and have amazing physiques, that's a lot of dedication right there.. by just doing it with whole foods. Weight gainers are big time scams imo, why waste $40+ for weight gainer when you can pretty much throw in random fruits, granola, oats, protein and whatever into a blender and make your own weight shake.. I forgot what company but they were getting by using the lowest grade of ingredients to add empty boosters into their weight gainers.. One last thing about supplements, don't go into a GNC and expect the person working there to be the master of nutrition and supplementing.. they say a lot of stuff to lure you into buying overpriced sh*t..
Also to the brah up there, simply put you cannot turn fat into muscle.. muscle is muscle, fat is fat. You can build muscle tho under that fat and cut..
