    Does anyone have a favorite lifting supplement they take?

    Not a protein, but something for a little more umph in your workouts.

    Caffeine in the form of coffee or tea is a good pre-exercise supplement for a workout. Many studies point this out. You don't need a lot to see the effect but a cup or two just prior to your workout should keep you more focused and give you a bigger pump. Note that many sold supplements already contain caffeine in them for this very purpose.

    I've been taking Magnesium, Calcium and Zinc as mineral supplements.

    Magnesium - important in protein synthesis and energy production. if you are eating nuts and legumes, you are probably getting enough magnesium. My diet doesn't include a lot of them.

    Calcium - important in muscular contraction and help with bone density (we are getting tons of structural stress from lifting heavy)

    Zinc - important for muscle growth. if you are eating red meat, you should be getting plenty. I keep my red meat minimal and don't really eat other stuff listed in the link below.

    Yes, caffeine, My opinion is that there are two PROVEN supplements not including caffeine. Protein and creatine. Be very cautious when spending money for others. I lift at home therefore I am able to eat and drink while I am lifting! Caffeine, Carbs and Protein.
