What supplements should i be taking for weightlifting for football?

I’m a sophomore turning a junior and i am bout 5’10 and 149lbs. I don’t know if i should take any supplements like creatine or whey protein to gain muscle faster and gain weight. I need some ideas on what i should take?

Depends on how much you want to spend. Here are my favorite supplements in order what I like and use the most.

Whey protein
AAKG (arginine any version is good for me)
Glutamine
Creatine – not to often because I eat so much red meat.

I was able to go from 135 lbs to 175 lbs in one summer. I ate like a horse, made sure I ate at least 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight, and I used Mike Mentzer High Intensity training routines (AKA heavy duty).

Here is a youtube clip of one of the routines. clip is kinda boring, but gets the point across

Now here is my whey protein schedule

Right out of bed 50 gram shake/smoothie
Immediately after workout 50 gram shake/smoothie
Right before bed 50 gram shake/smoothie

Then sometimes if I wake up in the middle of the night, I will go to the kitchen and have another 50 gram shake/smoothie.

This blows up recovery and puts the mass on quick!
