Well i recommend dumbbell bench press for pec, have weight so that you can only do 10, do 3-4 sets, if chest is still alright after that, do fly too. If you have incline and decline benches then you can incorporate them some time too. Crunches for abs imo, simple yet effective, look at the thread on strengthening back for an advanced crunch method. Can also do roll outs to tone and harden muscle, if you over do it with crunches you can develop muscle so much that it protrudes, i find roll out tighten that up as well as the crunch variant i mentioned in the other thread. Arms are easy, curls for biceps, change the number of reps time to time and possibly try drop sets, where you basically say curl 15kg 8 times then strait after same arm curl 10kg as many times as possible, takes muscles to complete fatigue, good for muscles that are used everyday and adaptive. For triceps i personally do skull crushers, usually do them same day i do chest, right after chest cause use triceps in a bench press. Shoulders, lots of ways to do them, just start with shoulder press and maybe fly's. For back i recommend chin ups and rows and dead lifts for lower back, shrugs for upper back but can do them with dead lifts. If you have any questions about the exercises or that ive mentioned just ask. These are along lines of my own body building training i do, there are tone of ways to meet you goals, own body weight or using weight machines can do it too.

Use Optimum Nutrition 100% Gold Standard Whey. The best I have ever used. Doesn't replace busting your rear to make gains, but does make it possible to get the right amount of protein while busting your rear to make gains.

Ya depends on person to person. some people react badly to certain stuff.
Reflex is really good, along with glutamine powder/Iron tablets for recovery.
I dont do creatine because im not in a competitive sport and ive heard mixed reports on side effects which im not certain on but everybody uses it really so make up your own mind there.

Hi
In my suggestion Whey protein is the best option to increase muscular mass. I have been using whey protein powder from last 2 years it's really effective.

Not the best taste, but GNC Beyond Raw Iso-Peptide Protein is incredible. I swear it's the most effective protein product on the market today. You will understand why I say this the first time you try it.

Ur a douche majorba!

I was surprised myself.  Except for the multivitamins, I had never cared much for their sport supplements until recently.  The new Beyond Raw line is top shelf.  Particularly this protein, and the pre workout supplement called Lit.  Lit tastes pretty good also.  I still prefer the Pro Supps preworkout products though.

I rather you try to explain why before I buy it. What's so great about it? What makes it different from other products?

Hey MajorBA, last month I did try the GNC multivitamins and the GNC Beyond Raw Lit!
I know the multivitamins are not that good but tried them anyway, so far so good.  :P
The GNC Beyond Raw Lit is Good like U said!  :like
 I got cotton candy flavored. 
It doesn't hurt my stomach or make me feel full and seems to be doing the job at hand. 
So far I'm liking this product a lot!
You are correct Sir
Thank U for the suggestion!  :like2

You're welcome.  They have really stepped up their game.  The Beta-Alanine, L-Citrulline, and Arginine Silicate dosage is on the money.  The caffeine content is good, but not so much as to negate the vasodilating effects.  Great pump, focus, and energy.  I'm about half way through a container of Icy Fireworks flavor right now which is OK taste.  I liked the Gummy Fish flavor I tried the first time a lot better.

Hey Kizzo, I just noticed that I hadn't responded to this yet.  Apology for the time lapse.  You can try single serving packs for about $2.19 if you don't want to commit to a whole tub.  It is pretty expensive.  They want almost $60 for 30 servings.  What makes it so good and unique is that it is whey and collagen peptides, whey isolate, and micellar casein.  The bio availability is exceptional.  I swear you can feel it immediately.  The speed of recovery from a strenuous weight lifting routine is second to none that I have tried so far, and that is many.  As in decades of supplement purchases. 

 I am in no way employed by, profiting from, or have any interest in promoting GNC products other than to tell you the truth from personal experience.  This is an awesome product.

Sounds good. Thanks for the info. :like
I may actually try out the single serving packs after I finish my current protein powder tub.
