Pumped: 8 best gym supplements

Not getting the results you want out of your gym regime? Health and fitness experts LDN Muscle help pick the best supplements available
  • @JackdeMenezes

Considered adding supplements to your gym routine, but have no idea what is safe and what isn’t? You’re not the only one. Gym culture has grown in the UK in recent years, even in difficult economic times,  with memberships seeing a four per cent boost over the course of the recession.

The key to reaching your goals remains the correct training and maintaining a balanced diet, but there are supplements out there which can boost your muscle growth and training capabilities, if used correctly and safely.

With the help of James and Tom Exton and Lloyd and Max Bridger at health and fitness experts LDN Muscle, we've pulled together the safest and most effective supplements.

From your regular whey protein to the correct pre-workout boost and late night treat, we’ve covered everything from mass-gainers to creatine monohydrate. Remember though, this is NOT an excuse to skip training and eat junk food to your heart’s content.
