NutraBio Creatine Monohydrate (Money saver and you can also mix this with your Whey, its flavorless)
NutraBio creatine monohydrate is pharmaceutical grade and ultra-micronized for maximum bio-availability and effectiveness. Creatine is a precursor to the bio-energetic fuel creatine phosphate, which replenishes cellular ATP (adenosine triphosphate) levels during maximum intensity contractions. Supplementing with creatine can increase levels of creatine phosphate in the muscle improving work output capacity, power, recovery and muscle hydration. When muscles are hydrated, muscle catabolism (breakdown) is minimized.

Jack3d (bad after taste, taste like 5 hours energy. But a lot of people like it)
USPlabs Jack3d is easily the most intense pre-workout product ever invented.Some products may cause the excitation you need to get motivated to get into the gym and move weight around, but unless you also have some "energy in the tank" you're not going to perform your best.Yet, with USPlabs Jack3d, you'll not only have to force yourself to get to the gym, but also you'll get more repetitions in while you're there. More repetitions will ultimately lead to more muscle mass.USPlabs Jack3d has a precise blend of compounds that will not only get you flying through your workouts like a mad man, but will allow you to have hours upon hours of energy without a harsh crash at the end.In essence, this product hits both angles, allowing you to increase strength, power, focus and stamina, while providing the motivation to get into the gym. The end result is better performance in the gym and ultimately, more muscle mass.

Drink a scoop of Whey when waking up
After eating Take CLA, 2 to 3 times and if you're taking Nitrix you take 3tablets 3 times a day. daily after meals. So you will take CLA and Nitrix at the same time
Take prework out 30 minutes before workout
After workout Take Whey and Creatine
Before Going to Bed Take Whey and Creatine Again
You will easily stack 10 to 15 lbs of muscle within 2 to 3 months with a stack like this and you'll be ripped as well
My friends ask me all the time how do I build muscle and what kind of workouts I do.
The key is to max out, which means you finish off with the highest amounts of weights that you can do.
Example - curls, I start off with about 60 pounds. I do 20 to 25 reps
Rest for 5 minutes
Then I come back and add 20 more pounds, then I do 15 to 20 reps.
Rest for 5 minutes, this is the one you max out on.
Now I add about 30 more pounds, all in total about 110 lbs. I do 10 to 15 reps of that
And I'm done, it only took about 18 minutes for one workout. And I'll be building more muscle then a guy that sits at the gym doing about 200 reps on something light until he can't lift anymore.
Do the same with a chest workout, doesn't matter how big you can bench. That doesn't mean anything
What I like to do is, after I'm done with curls. I leave the weights on and max out in reverse when benching. Same amount of reps and minutes off for rest. Theres some guys that don't like to rest and just go on nonstop and skip it.
I do this workout every 2 days, say I do it on a Monday, then on a Tuesday I'll do cardio, jump on the elliptical for an hour. On these days put in some ab workouts and any other workouts you'll like to do. You do cardio every 2 days aswell, leave out Sunday. So you'll be working out 6 out of 7 days.
Now the other key, what you put in your body. It's simple
I wake up, eat something. Wait for about 30 minutes and take a scoop of N.O. Xplode a pre work out supplement. Gives you bouncing off the walls energy, after I'm done with that. I fill up a bottle of water about 2 liters. Do my workout and after I'm done I take a scoop of Whey protein and Creatine and then again 6 hours later. You can do Whey 3 times, once when you wake up, after work out and when you go to sleep.
And that's all you really need to do if you're a newbie to weight lifting. After you've acquired some knowledge you can go ahead and stack more products for even more muscles gains
