Ok, so you're probably between 135-175 lbs and may consider yourself “skinny-fat.”
I talked about building muscle and cutting up for a skinny-fat guy in a previous article.
Now I'm going to elaborate on what supplements would be best to use for someone who is “skinny-fat.”
Now remember, no supplement is going to replace hard work and eating right, but there are ways to speed up progress!!
This article is for the guy who has already been in the gym or attempting to work out and just cannot get the desired results they want.
I am a firm believer in using supplements when you've exhausted other avenues such as diet and training hard, and for me to come right out and tell you to “buy this” would make me a hypocrite, so that I will not do.
The first thing you need to understand about building muscle and shedding fat as a skinny-fat guy is that muscle is a fat metabolizer.
So to try to start cutting up right from the beginning is not a route I would suggest, because it makes no sense to try shredding up muscle you do not have yet.
As you grow bigger and stronger your metabolic rate will also increase and you will re-composition your body.
There are ways to promote faster growth through using good supplements.
This is because there are supplements that are geared towards hydrating muscles(which works because muscle is made up of 75% water) and there are supplements that can put you in a more hormonal environment.
When you combine the two of those you will get faster muscle growth and a better response to weight training.
The top 3 supplements for skinny-fat bodybuilders
1. Vital creatine by Vital labs (1 bottle)
2. Anafuse by Vital labs (2-3 bottles – 8 week cycle with 2 bottles or 12 week cycle with 3 bottles)
3. Vital Vite (multi-vitamin) by Vital labs (45 days worth per bottle)
1) Vital creatine for skinny-fat guys
Creatine works by enhancing energy that is needed to support cellular function, mainly in muscles.
95% of stored creatine in the body is stored in muscles, so think of creatine as adding fuel to your muscles for increased strength, recovery, and harder workouts through more powerful muscular output.
Creatine can also serve as a fat burner, because once you start packing on more muscle you will increase your metabolic rate!!
Creatine is harmless and whatever you don't use you'll just excrete.
It's wise to increase water consumption while using creating, which you should be drinking plenty of water anyways!!
2) Anafuse for Skinny-Fat guys
Anafuse is a natural anabolic, which means it does not knock down normal hormone production, it simply enhances it!!
One of the key reasons this product works so well is because it's a Myostatin inhibitor.
Myostatin is a protein that actually limits muscle growing potential, and people who naturally have higher levels of this protein will have a harder time achieving overall growth potential.
Anafuse also increases the rate of protein absorption (like steroids also do) which means nutrients you consume will be better utilized in your body.
Anafuse can be used for as little as 4 weeks or as long as 12 weeks.
Now, if you're like me then you really don't want to get off a product just when results start rolling in, so I would highly suggest AT LEAST 8 weeks on Anafuse.
3) Vital Vite multi-vitamin for skinny-fat guys
Vital Vite is a great multi-vitamin because it's loaded with much more than normal multi-vitamins, at a price that is pretty much the same as inferior products!!
Not only does it provide all of the essential vitamins such as A, B, C, D and E, but it also included an amino acid complex, an anti-oxidant & liver complex, and a joint complex!!
All of this is included in one multi-vitamin from a very solid supplement company!!
But that's not all, there is more; there is a performance complex which includes Beta Alanine (frequently used in pre-workouts to enhance vascularity and muscle pumps) and L-Carnitine, which is a compound that promotes increased fat burning.
How could you go wrong with a daily multi-vitamin that is packed with all of that at the same price as other vitamins that are far inferior?
Look, I'm not just some guy who comes out with a sales pitch from products I haven't used myself. I use everything I talk about and give my honest review on products.
You simply CAN'T GO WRONG WITH VITAL LABS PRODUCTS!!
This is an affordable muscle building stack that will enhance results and most importantly, make you feel good!!
You see, the problem I've had with a lot of pro-hormones in the past was I just didn't feel good when I was on them.
To be completely honest, some of them made me feel ill and the side effects were worse than actual steroids!!
I'm not going to come on here and tell you guys to spend a small fortune on supplements that you don't need.
But in my honest opinion, these 3 products would be excellent for a guy who is looking to become healthier and add some quality muscle mass to his frame!!
But if you are at a point that you feel like you need a little extra “push” in the gym, you can end your search now and go with the recommended stack I'm suggesting.
For the guys who know me, you know I speak nothing but the truth and I wouldn't steer you wrong!!
Best of luck and train hard!!
