Australian Fitness Expo FINISHED ๐Ÿ˜ฅ was amazing meeting @christianguzmanfitness who gave some great advice about start ups and how to effectively launch a product, appreciate the advice, and @maggiemay.russell who were both the most down to earth athletes in the expo ๐Ÿ˜Š and of course @robbieframe whoโ€™s advice for months has helped me out enormously, great to meet you.

FAQ: What supplements do you takeโ“
โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”-
The answer to this question really does depend on what my goal is. Example, what I would take on a cutting/shredding phase may have some differences to what I take on my bulk/mass gaining phase. All my supplements are from @fitnutritionfix ! Use my code โ€˜BESTโ€™ for 10% off ALL! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Protein by @rivalus is taken post workout, designed to re-build my muscles during the anabolic stage (first 20mins post workout) where my muscles need the protein to rebuild and recover ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ

Creatine by @gentecnutrition helps keep water retention into my muscles, and has been proven if taken CORRECTLY - following water guidelines, loading phases ect. Can increase strength and size gains ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ

NOTE: Supplements are not a meal replacement, nor a magical formula, they simply assist with whatever goal you want to achieve, and should not be seen as a substitute for the organic and natural source of that powder/tablet. โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”-
