Supplements should not be considered additives. Nor should they be considered as an “if I have time.” They are required because they provide nutrients your body simply can’t manufacture when it's needed. Nutrient timing is as much a part of performance as the workouts themselves, and recovery may be the most important reason for specific timing. If you do not recover, you simply cannot maximize your training routines and thus should be your prime motive when using supplements. The Hyper Growth Lean Mass Training Program is no slouch when it comes to requiring energy, stamina, and drive. This stack is designed to maximize your muscle-building capacity, help you recover, and give you the energy you need to fuel each and every workout.
Unlike other stacks and generic supplement advice others provide, I am going to tell you when and why you need each product in my stack. Sure, you can do your workouts without them, but using them will ensure you have the power necessary for every rep, the recovery needed to increase muscle size, and the metabolic lift you need to get those tight lines. Without this supplement stack, you simply will not maximize your potential gains. Stick with this stack, eat properly, lift hard, and watch your physique change right before your eyes.

As a rule of thumb, I like to include a quality multi-vitamin that has high Vitamin D3, magnesium, and zinc, as well as a good omega-3 supplement to provide extra strength and muscle support. And no size-building program is complete without getting at least 3g to as much as 10g of creatine daily, as its ability to improve muscle size and strength has unparalleled proof.
