|Hey, i am a university student, and i have been working out consistantly for about 1.5 years. I decided i wanted to bulk up after staying relatively toned, so i setup a new routine for myself, and it is going great. I am working with a 5x5 routine, with little to no isolation involved, all compound exercises (i will get back into isolation in 4 months at the end of this cycle). Now, i do not have trouble gaining or losing weight when i push myself, but my biggest problem is finances. As a student my budget is severely limited.
What supplements can i start taking to help replenish my calories? right now i have my vitamin D and C's, Whey protein powder. I already eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, Chicken and Fish... But again, this stuff gets expensive. What are some of my alternatives? Something hopefully cost effective. Thanks.
