How do I need to go about adding these supplements correctly.
Having tried for a long time to get big and strong, and finally achieving some success, I can first of all promise you that ballooning is extremely hard. Do you have any idea how much 4000 calories is? And people sometimes need 6k to make good progress.

I recommend less supplementation and more eating to get big. You can try a supp if you like, but be honest with yourself when evaluating if it actually did anything for you. With me, I have to say, creatine, glutamine, BCAAs, blah blah blah GNC crap yada yada... and half of the vitamins and minerals out there- do nothing.

Food is what matters outside of your workouts.
