Barbell Kitchen Approved: My Favorite Nutritional Supplements

So it’s time you stocked up on ALL of the things you need to get started, eh? Now, I don’t want you to dash out of the house and “buy-all-the-things” that will “make you skinny” because…well…that’s now how this works. First things first: I don’t sell nutritional supplements. However, since a great deal of my time is spent answering questions about them, I created this resource to help you locate some of the brands I've researched intensively, tried myself, and had success with.

Best Collagen: Bubs Naturals Collagen

“Highest quality, grass-fed and pasture-raised collagen protein.”

Best Protein: Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey

"Per serving, you can expect 24 grams of 100 percent whey protein."

Best plant-based protein: Naked Nutrition Pea Protein Isolate

"There are zero additives, so you won’t have to worry about sneaky artificial sweeteners, flavors, or colors."

Best Pre-Workout: Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy

“A blended mix of amino acids to aid in muscle recovery with 100MG of caffeine, no more than a cup of coffee.”
