Xtend and other supplements


#1

Hey guys! I’ve been working out steadily for the past 1.5 years.

I’ve lost 60 lbs of fat (at least) and packed on 20 lbs of muscle, weighing myself at 160lbs. Dieting is fine. Clean foods. What I want to bring up today is the topic of pre-workout, intra-workout and post-workout supplements.

I’ve tried and done many workout supplements but recently, I’ve heard of Xtend. Anyone here ever tried it before? I got it this week and I would like to know if it actually helps building/retaining muscle.

Reason is, I still have fat to cut but I want to bulk at the same time. Unfortunately, cardio just kills muscles too much so I’ve been avoiding doing heavy cardio.

Anyone?

i’ve been working out for over 20 years (as in, consistent routines, 4+ days per week)… in all that time, i only used supplements was when i was competing (body building in college)…

i’ve just never felt the need to use them… im not discounting them by any means, i just dont have a very good opinion on the matter, as i’ve been successful with just watching my diet, and getting in my focused (near) daily workouts…

good luck in your search though! :smiley:

Well, as an asian, its a little difficult to manage a calorie diet high enough to bulk up. Trimming was relatively easy.

Budget’s tight with food since most go towards tuition and rent/utilities. But if a clean diet worked for you, I guess it’ll be good for me to continue with a good diet.

so you prefer mass > tone?
i never understood this myself. I would much rather work on my stamina and be truly fit and healthy, than working out to gain mass.
My brother in law is the same. he will do whey protein all day long and eat nothing but rice and chicken (both of which are cheap cheap cheap!). He has big muscles but neither of us would call him “fit”.

Well, Mass first and then trimming down with cardio. Once fat’s trimmed, I can start toning.

At least that’s my stance on workout. But I also understand the necessity to work on stamina and actually be fit. I’ll see how this route takes me though.
