As a Cellucor athlete, Jen Jewell knows that supplementation can help anyone reach their goals. But, she also knows she can't rely on them to bring results. Jen's supplement philosophy stems from need. She knows what's necessary for show or photo-shoot preparation and uses supplements to help her get the right look.

Jen knows how confusing the supplement market can be. "With supplements," she says, "there's always going to be hype. You hear your friends talking about what they're using, or you see fancy ads for a pre-workout. The best advice I can give is to do your research. That way you'll know what you're actually getting."
If you're not sure where to begin, check out the Bodybuilding.com product reviews. "It's really helpful to read reviews from other users. You get a well-rounded response."
Not every person needs the same supplements. Beginners need different products than serious competitors. For everyone, Jen suggests taking a multivitamin and buying protein powder. "Multivitamins are great because not everyone is going to get all of those key nutrients every day. Protein powder is perfect because you can get a clean, healthy source of protein into your diet. Protein powder just makes life easier."
"I don't think it was just a coincidence that once I started to supplement properly, eat correctly, and get an adequate amount of rest, I saw enormous gains and changes in my physique," Jen admits. "I'm more defined, have maintained more lean muscle mass, and have been able to easily maintain lower levels of body fat year-round than ever before."
Jen Jewell's Supp Stack
This particular stack is for competition prep. When she's not prepping, Jen cycles off Super HD and takes only CLK. She only uses Cellucor L2 in the days before a shoot or competition. She also only uses pre-workouts on weight-training days. On cardio days, Jen sticks to BCAAs.
