Hi
I was wondering if you guys use any supplements ?
In the gym ( doing weights ) , I use BCAA and Ceratine also protein shakes . Quicker muscle recovery , more power and of course bigger muscles . Since I started commuting to work three times a week on my bicycle ( just to help with my cardio training ) I was wondering I I should use the supplements as well .
They won't help with cardio but maybe abs and legs .So here's simple question - do you use supplements?

Sorry. Just hope I didn't offend you guys with this question.
I know a loot people think of supplements as steroids (my wife is a good example ). In the gym ( actually on the free waight section ) . They are normal thing . I understand that cycling is not about muscle building so you don't really need them .

I'm also a big reefing fan - just saying...... :laugh:

D-ribose tablets for muscle recovery. Often found in the more expensive recovery products on the market. No idea if they actually make any difference - suspect not. :tongue:

Used to take ceratine but given up. Don't need more muscle bulk for cycling, and there are some side effects that were a little worrying.:sad:

As people have said, weight training supplements will be wasted on what is essentially an aerobic activity. Your legs simply aren't under enough stress to make them worthwhile.
