There are lots of supplements that are extremely important for all bodybuilders and health enthusiasts. There are some supplements that everyone should be getting but just aren't. Now, there are some people who just don't know what these important supplements are for. Case in point, 'Tupacalypse' and his ignorance of the bountiful benefits of fish oil supplementation.

Supplement Thread Of The Week

Top 10 Signs You're A Supplement Addict

As an avid poster in the supplement forum, I know what it's like to have supplements on your mind 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I'm always thinking to myself how I could possibly make my stack better or what to add to get those few extra reps out at the gym. Some people ask themselves, "Is this guy addicted?" The answer is yes, very much so!

Meals Eating Now (Photos)!

Alright, alright. It appears that I have been avoiding one of the most viewed threads in the nutrition forum for months now. It's time to give this monster a place in the BOF.
