    I have never taken a multi vitamin and thought perhaps I should get on that as I train 6 days a week hard... (weight lifting and sport)

    I came across these (recommended to me) http://www.bulknutrition.com/p241_Animal_Pak_Universal.html

    Told to take them daily with food closest to the time I workout. Should contain all the vitamins and minerals and amino's I need daily.

    If you enjoy takin' 11 to 22 pills a day just for multi's then by all means take them. Though if you want to only take 3 multi pills a day then I'd suggest NOW ADAM's multi. My buddy is about to finish up his first can of Animal Pak and when he's done he's switchin' to ADAM. Both multi's taste and smell like ass, but w/e it's over with quickly. I'm usin' ADAM and I couldn't be happier with the product and price.

    Centrum is alright but...the pill is pretty dense and harder to digest, unlike the ADAM caps. Though if you're goin' to take Centrum at least use the Centrum Silver, but that's just what MensHealth.com suggests...


    Anyways, I'm off to the gym. Legs day, yay.

    Centrum is made for the run of the mill average guy who doesn't train himself the way most athletes do. This meaning the daily usage or amount of vitamin needed is not going to be enough for someone like me, who trains hard almost everyday.
    Basically, this was recommended to me because of my rigorous training schedule.
    I dont mind the 11 pills if there is something so much more beneficial from it.
