Teenagers and Supplements
Teenagers are constantly told what they can and can’t do and it doesn’t stop in the gym! “Lift less” “Lift more” “Don’t lift at all!” With so many mixed opinions, it can sometimes be hard to know what to believe. Well we’re here to sort that out and tell you once and for all the do's and don’ts of teenage bodybuilding. Whether you want to get big or cut down and get ripped, there are supplements out there to help you achieve your goal! Having said this, it is important you make sure your supplements are supplements and not the main part of your diet.
Protein Powders - Protein should be the basis of your diet and we strongly recommend you start with a protein powder. Whey powders, like Reflex’s Instant Whey, serve excellently for quick protein hits, ideal for the morning or after workouts. You can also get stage-released protein powders, providing your body with a protein drip, with a constant feed. BSN’s Syntha-6, Gaspari’s MyoFusion, Sci-MX’s GRS-5 and Reflex’s Peptide Fusion provide this.

Multi-Vitamins - These must not be forgotten! Having a deficit of even one vitamin or mineral can jeopardise your results. Make sure you grab some of these for supreme gains in muscle mass, glowing spot-free skin and overall health. You’re going to need the best quality so forget about supermarket brands and pick up Reflex’s Nexgen Multi-vitamins.

Creatine - This is a great way of increasing strength, without tampering with your hormones! At your age, testosterone is as high as it will ever be, so avoid synthetic sources of testosterone. Creatine can also help pack on those pounds quickly, with water filling out your muscles, allowing them more nutrients. For a basic, top quality, pure creatine, opt for Reflex’s Creapure, which will deliver fast results at a great price! For a more comprehensive, effective formula try Sci-MX’s Crea Hardcore.

Glutamine - As the most abundant amino acid in muscle tissue, Glutamine is an essential to have in your supplementation regime. It will help primarily with repairing your muscles and protect them from injury. This can be taken from all in one products, like Reflex’s One Stop Xtreme or Sci-MX’s Omni MX. For a more stripped back, pure version of Glutamine pick up a tub of Reflex’s Glutamine.
