Anybody out there using supplements with good results for their softball training? I'm looking for something to help with workout recovery, energy, weight loss and strength gain or retention. I know, thats a mouthful but just the same ... I'd like to know what men 50+ are taking and in what amounts. Too much variety, brands and manufacturers out there to figure it out on my own.

For workout recovery I usually go to the nearest bar as quickly as I can. It does wonders for my energy and strength gain. Weight loss can be a problem, but retention is usually resolved by the next day. Variety, brands and manufacturers donít matter, just keep it coming.

I have over 30 yrs in weighttraining and have tried everthing under the sun except steroids. So here are some recommendations. You must find a supplement that works for you and makes you comfortable taking it. To this day I still take DHEA (50mg daily), Korean Gensing (100mg daily) started these at age 35. Amino Acids (1500mg daily)and L-Glutamine (an amino for muscle development,(100mg). I have been taking Aminos for 20yrs. They still give me the results I want, now at age 51. Strength,energy,recovery and verility. I also have taken Andro, Creatine, Ephedrine and Hydroxi-Cut. The Creatine gave me excellent results w/o any serious side effects except cramping.
On the chondroitin question. Tried it with glucosamine didn't work for me. But, shark cartilage did work better for me. Also combined the shark cartilage w/ hyuloronic acid and got good results. the hyuloronic acid helps replenish the synovial fluids in the joints, which help to lubricate the joints.

Boston - Thanks for the comprehensive list of supplements, amounts and what your taking them for. This is exactly the type of info I'm looking for. Have you ever tried Tribulus vs the dhea? If so what were the results for you? Read that tribulus stimulates your own hormone production and that dhea shuts it down. My boys tell me that the tribulus info is bogus (they are both young athletes in their mid twenties) that it shuts your own hormone production down as well. Pretty confusing stuff.
