If you find yourself wondering exactly what supplements to take before during and after your workout, you are not alone.
Many people who have no trouble getting regular exercise/workouts in don’t know what to take or why they’re taking whatever their currently taking. Many people just walk into a supplement store and takes what the clerk tells them at face value – that’s a mistake. Many of those clerks work on some sort of commission so rather than concerning themselves with your overall health and fitness goals they are concerned with selling you the highest ticket items to garner their salary the most they possibly can.
Of course they wouldn’t recommend something harmful but they certainly might recommend something useless with a high price. Well, worry no more. The following is a comprehensive list of supplements and their purpose that all healthy adults should consider using in conjunction with a regular workout regiment.
