In the past two days, I have took in so much info through various threads throughout this portion of sherdog. This is pretty much my new home here (forget MMA discussion ). Working at GNC has also yeilded a lot of nice information regarding certain products, plus the 30% of discount and free stuff will come in handy! Anywho, I get paid today from GNC and tomorrow from my other job, and I plan to start my first wave of supplements. I scored a free tub of Isopure (50grams of protien, no carbs) and have taking in one serving of that in the morning, replacing my normal (unhealty...AKA frozen waffles) breakfast . I usually take my GNC Mega Men Mulit along with the shake. (Will taking my multi with the shake, still yeild the same benefits as far as absorption, as it would if I where to eat a meal and take my mulit?). I take the mulit two times a day, once in the morning, and once at diner. I have also been taking L-Arginine, around 3,000mg a day, for all sorts of reasons. After reading around a bit though, I think I am going to finish off this bottle and discontinue to use it. I plan to just save the money I would spend on L-Arginine (around 12 bucks) and use it for some No-Xplode instead. Thats pretty much all I take right now. I am going to start working on my diet to, which has been pretty horrid. My goals are kinda simple right now. I pretty much want to cut off extra fat, from my poor diet and replace it with some lean muscle mass, but nothing that is going to weigh me down too much. I weigh around 160 at the moment, and would like to stay around that weight. I want to look nice and cut, but that isn't the most important reason. I really just want to increase my strength for grappling. I also want to increase my endurance and mental sharpness. I have been looking at this site for a a few minutes now: http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/wrestling.htm and cant decided what I really want to get. I already have the protein covered for awhile, and I have a good mulit. I doubt I can afford No-Xplode right now (I roughly get to spend around 50 bucks of my check on myself, and that has to last me 2 weeks, and this includes outings with g/f and friends. :/) What could a buy that would help with some of the goals I listed, that is kinda cheap? I am thinking of buy some creatine for now, and saving alittle every check, until I can afford some No-Xplode (Which is going to be tough, since I am also saving from some Sambo shoes, and the Real Pro Wrestling DVD Box Set @[email protected]). Also should I invest in some Glutamine? I know the Isopure has some glutamine in it. but I cant remember how much per serving. And lastly, any suggestions on a good cycle for the creatine and glutamine?
