Revolt 2.6, Supplements

I finished Uprising 2, Week 6 (my 4th week of the program) of Revolt Fitness.  I feel stronger in my upper body.  I'm able to do more real (manly) push-ups.  I've also increased the weights used in the upper body workouts.  To help with the soreness of working out 5 times a week, I take some supplements.

Here are the supplements I'm taking...
  • Multi vitamin
  • CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) - 1000mg 3x day. This is an omega-6 fatty acid primarily found in beef and dairy products that may help reduce body fat & increase lean muscle mass. 
  • Fish oil  - 1290mg 2x day.  Fish oil is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids. I buy one that minimizes burps because I can't stand to burp up fish all day.
  • Glutamine - 5000mg 1x day (I add the plain powder to my protein shake).  A workout basically tears your muscle fibers.  Immediately after a workout, your body starts to repair itself.  Glutamine plays a key role in repairing damaged and sore muscles.

I do see what a big role food plays in transforming my body.  Last week, I was off the wagon.  Instead of one cheat day, I had four!  With parties all weekend, my will power was lost.

Here are my numbers for week 2.6

Revolt's 2nd Uprising is now over.  I'm very happy with my results over the last 4 weeks. I'm sure I'll see my weight number go back down as I continue to hydrate after a weekend of drinking and bad eating.  I still lost inches last week!

  1. were u using the supplements before as well or is it just something recommended by the program?

    1. I started the supplements with the program.

  2. I have heard a lot about CLA recently. Do you feel it makes a difference?

    1. I think it does make a difference along with diet and exercise. I've lost body fat and inches. :-)

  3. I'm in my 5th week and am taking a CLA too and think that it's working but I'm not taking Glutamine because the powders that I found added extra calories that I didn't want. Does it make a difference to take it or not?

    1. I think the glutamine helps with soreness. I wasn't taking glutamine my first week on the program and was very sore. Now I feel sore but I can still sit and walk normal. LOL I use the plain, non-flavored glutamine in my shake.

  4. I am still getting a handle on the supplements - definitely feel like the pre-workout helps. Still thinking about CLA!
