    18yrs 166Ibs LowBF% but not sure what.

    I've tried the follow

    CellTech Creatine (contrains a bunch of gimicky shit and alot of sugar) I didn't like at all it was a waste of money to buy creatine that pretty much had 75grams of sugar. IF I wanted sugar in it I could add it myself. and 600cals of sugar for just 10grams of creatine

    Regular Creatine Monohydrate - I think this is where its at good cheap creatine If I want an insulin spike I can do it myself I don't need the shit built in.

    I can't really gauge creatine too well I can't take that much of it or that long it tends to give me slight acne.

    Hydroxycut - made me sweat and breathe deep loved it + energy boost, donsn't really do the breathing deep as much and sweating not sure if its because I take ripped now or because I'm built up a bit of resistance (only had a week supply of hydrox before I changed to ripped)
    Ripped Fuel - same things really Ripped is cheaper at my gnc I love this shit give me energy to continue working out hard, I don't do the 3x a day recommended I only take it prior workout keeps me from getting sluggish near the end but I've been double dosing prior workout lately.

    Protien - won't notice really anything drastic but it really helps meet thoughs high protien requirements buy cheap and pure if you can it goes fast.

    HMB - doh I was suckered a while ago like everyone else, it blows.

    Glutamine peptides (ordered a 2.2Ibs power container online) I tried normal L-glutamine but you would have to be rich to afford supplementing with this stuff if you got it from gnc or vitamin world, u need about 20grams a day for it to have effect(people have different opinionson this though some say as much as 40g). The gns ones generally have 1g per cap and recomend 3 a day, that only 3 grams of glutamine and L-glutamine isn't even as effective as Glutamine peptides. It basically only helps a little with soreness supposed to increase mucsle synthesis and and some other shit, you could do with out it.

    Your best bet to help you improve past your platue is to try various muscle shock techniques and make sure your pushing that weight for as long as you can, don't just stop at a number, go till you can't go anymore and then some. try to hold it at a position if you can't get it up again.

    If you're considerning steroids (or are you just talking about andro?), then go to the anabolic discussion board. I don't use gear, but have considered it and they'll all tell you that at 17 you'd be dumb to use gear cause your test levels are at their peak now. Also, I've never used any andro, but again, I've looked into it too (I'm in Canada so can't buy at GNC or anything) and the general opinion seems to be that the shit don't work. Haven't even read of anyone that says it does yet. I think the supplements you bought are all exactly what you need. Glutamine is also good, but you won't notice anything drastic, except maybe much deeper sleep (I noticed that), which is actually quite important. You could also try BCAA's (branch chained amino acids). Studies seems to all agree that BCAA's, glutamine, creatine, and whey protein all help with adding muscle. Hope that helps.
