Down below you can see the precise list of supplements my male and female clients use when training to build muscle.
If your goal is hypertrophy, it is too easy to get caught up in the hype of the supplement business and spend a lot of unnecessary money on things which flat out don’t work.
What you see here is the select few.
The key products which have years of science behind them to document their big, bold claims of enhancing your training results.

Optimum Nutrition 100% Gold Standard Whey Protein
It might raise eyebrows but, as explained on my list of fat loss supplements, Gold Standard Whey is a perfect hybrid which suits either goal.
You should steer clear of mass gainers, that’s for sure. Because what they really are is calorie-loaded, sugar-filled, fat gainers.
And the goal here is muscle growth, not any growth.
For that, we need a whey protein supplement which ticks the box of providing you with enough high quality protein to create hypertrophy, without filling you full of unnecessary s**t.
It’s the world’s best selling whey protein supplement for a reason, and it’s the one all of my top clients use.
Each serving is broken down here:
- 23.7g protein
- 1.6g carbohydrates
- 1.3g fat
RedCon1 Total War
When it comes to pre workout supplements, there’s enough bulls**t out there to fill a farmer’s field.
Some companies fill their products will experimental stimulants in an attempt to make the user feel “off their face” during training… Other companies under-dose key ingredients or hide their formula (an indication that they are also under-dosing) so they can charge a premium price for product which is cheap to manufacture.
RedCon1 Total War is currently head and shoulders above the competition.
Full clinical doses of citrulline malate and beta-alanine will give you a training pump like nothing else, and a large serving of caffeine will provide the energy boost to take advantage of it.
Each serving broken down below:
- 6g citrulline malate
- 3.2g beta-alanine
- 350mg caffeine
Myprotein Creatine Monohydrate
In terms of academic research, creatine comes in 2nd only to caffeine.
We have literally decades of studies showing it’s potency as a muscle building supplement, and to this day no form of creatine has ever outperformed the original; creatine monohydrate.
Creatine will boost your explosive strength and power, while also forcing additional water into your muscle cells to create a full, hard appearance.
Scoop 5 grams into your post-workout whey protein shake, and you’re good to go.
Here’s three little items everybody should use regardless of training goal.
They’re so easy to miss in our diet (when’s the last time you ate turnip?) and so easy to correct. Plus, the one in the middle plays a very important role if you live in the UK, where the sun is rarer than an Adam Sandler Oscar win.
