When I go to the GNC, I never know what I need. What vitamin supplement do you think most men could benefit from most?
I recommend my clients supplement with creatine and whey protein. If you eat a lot of processed foods you will want to include a food based vitamin. I also recommend fish oil and ZMA.

When it comes to working out after a long break should a person start with weights, cardio, or some combination?
When getting back into training I would recommend hiring a certified trainer that could assess where you are and make the appropriate recommendation. There really is no one size fits all when it comes to fitness. People either get hurt over-doing it or don’t push themselves hard enough.
