Rely on supplements.
Supplement companies have a lot of power in the fitness industry and beyond. They can have you believe you can get Phil Heath’s physique (Mr Olympia) in a few months by taking their mass gainers. This is so far from the truth its unbelievable. Another supplement which is alway over played is fat burning pills, these would boost you metabolism by maybe 1-2% and the negative side effects can be pretty bad. There are a whole host of other supplement which are sold out there claiming they “may” help with this and “can” help with that, however they can not be passed by the FDA to definitively work. Thats not to say they don’t work however they haven’t had enough studies done on them to say they do. My tip to you all is sort out your basic nutrition before you go anywhere near supplements as none of them will undo bad nutrition.
Well there you have it, 5 ways that you can be giving it everything in the gym and getting nothing back.
