    Twinlab Mass Fuel is excellent. It contains a negligible amount of simple sugars and has creatine, glutamine, and many beneficial amino acids in it. It tastes excellent, also.

    Cytosport's Cyto Gainer is also very comparable.

    G.G. is correct - you're doing the wrong stuff for your goals. You don't need something from twinlabs, you need proper nutriton and a better workout plan. Then you can worry about suppliments.

    Supplements are exactly that, supplementation to a good training regimen and diet. A crappy diet and illogical training schedule isn't going to be fixed by anything you can pop or inject, except for Synthol.... =-)

    Yes I workout 3 times a day lower body monday, wednesday, satuarday upper body tuesday, friday and sunday.Seperated into barbell workout first 45 minutes then bodyweight excercises 45 minutes then dumbell excercises 1 hour for both upper and lower body. So thanks for the input now could some people recommend how lon g should i wait between workouts and if it helps to have fat to gain muscle?Thanks.

    Your routine sucks. Yes, fat is needed in small amounts for proper body function. Mineral solubility, etc. 45 g's of fat per 2000 calories is key for proper mass building for a power athlete.

    For me, since I'm also a beginner, I go by this.

Spend your creatine money on some more food or 45's.
    Good intro. Go read. :book1:.

    1. Is dependant upon what stage of fitness you're in, as well as your goal. We can just throw a number out there.

    2. Protein 1.6g per kg of body weight, Carbohydrates- 8.0 per kg, Fats 45 g per 2000 cals, Calories- 500 extra per day over what you normally take in.

    3. Compound lifts.

    4. 5x5 is fine for a brief period as is any scheme, the schemes and methodologies need to be constantly changed to avoid stagnation/accomdation of the body. Everything works for a while.

    Just thought of another question. When i correct my diet should is it all right to go ahead and start taking the supplements.
    Hold off for a while.

    Decent advice, but misguided a bit. Do some reading about Creatine, Pro-hormones, and other such supplementations, they do work, and quite well provided you use them correctly and know a bit about chemistry as some blends work much better than others.

    Well to reply to AkiraMusashi's anser on question 1 I have been lifting weights for almost 2.5 years now. Also i would like your input about my new lifting for upper body;Incline benchpress 4x12,decline 3x8, flat 2x10, militay press 4x12 diamond pushups, Bicep curls 4x10, Preacher curl 4x8, and 3x15 Bag Work with Hands for 15 min(Divided into 2 workouts). Also are squats, deadlifts, rows, leg extensions, wall squats,running 2 miles,calf raises and donkey calf raises and leg bagwork 15 minutes(divided into 2 workouts) enough for the lower body or do I need more compund excercises to go along with them. Also is it possible to workout and not recover enough but not be sore?

    You're doing way too much.

    For the total workout, one doesn't need more than 50 total repetitions. Also limit your exercises to one area per day.
