Today, I’m going to share some supplement recommendation videos with you from a few popular fitness / powerlifting / bodybuilding YouTubers. At the end of the article, I’ll tell you which supplements I take.
Note: Always do your own research, before you pound a bunch of supplements into your body. Examine.com is a pretty good web site to begin your research for most supplements.
Chelsea Lifts – Her channel
Ladies first. I think Chelsea is training for a powerlifting meet right now and there is some lifting included in the following video, but she starts it off by showing us her favorite supplements she currently takes. Wouldliftwith/10
Chelsea’s Supplement Stash: Citadel Fish Oil | Vitamin D (5,000 IU) | Optimum Nutrition Creatine | Primaforce Yohimbe HCI | Citadel Tier 1 Pre-Workout | GNC Pro Performance Beta-Alanine | Cellucor BCAA (Watermelon Flavor) | Spring Valley Iron | One A Day Women’s Active Metabolism Multivitamin (She recommends buying a better quality multivitamin, if you take one regularly.)
Elliott Hulse (strengthcamp) – His channel
While Elliott very rarely actually recommends supplements, he has mentioned what he uses in a few videos. I’m not going to embed his old recommendations video, in which he suggests you take ON whey, BSN creatine, Vitamin C and glutamine. It’s fairly outdated considering his recent recommendations of not taking any protein powder shakes. You can also tell how he feels about most supplements in his videos Honest Supplement Review #1 and #2 (graphic).
Below is a video where he discusses what he actually takes.
Supplement Stash: PaleoMeal from Designs for Health – Some flavors available: Chocolate | Natural Vanilla | Natural Berry | Strawberry … Elliott has also mentioned using a greens drink in past videos, but I’m too lazy to dig them up right now. I’m pretty sure he uses Living Fuel.
Jonnie Candito (CanditoTrainingHQ) – His channel
I haven’t seen Jonnie talk about supplements too much on his channel. Probably because he’s busy lifting heavy-ass weight.
He reviewed Jack3d Micro and he didn’t like the taste, but said it provided energy well. Below are his thoughts on whey protein.
Chris Barnard (overtimeathletes) – His channel
Chris rarely does videos about supplements, just like his buddy Elliott Hulse. Below are a couple he did make. The first one is about creatine and the second one is about bulking in general.
Brandon Campbell – His channel
He did a top 3 video about supplements.
What I Take
This is just to wrap this article up. It’s a list of supplements I currently take.
My Supplement Stash: Creatine | Whey Protein (I only take it occasionally to top off protein requirements.) | Caffeine (I usually opt for coffee instead, but I do have some pure caffeine as well.) | Beta-Alanine (Only for certain training periods.) | Vitamin D (Only in the winter.) | Fish Oil | Magnesium
