Which supplement should I take to get ripped/bigger muscles?

Which supplement should I take to get ripped/bigger muscles?

Hard work: Glad you train. For bulk, it's few reps at the heaviest weight you can handle. Creatine and (if ok with your physician) an electronic muscle stimulator actually work; the "supplements" are unlikely to do much good. For definition ("ripped"), it's reprogramming yourself to eat only when are truly hungry & shun greasy & sugary stuff & do a lot of cardio. Doubt mr. Jackman uses supplements. ...Read more

Sir have used some supplements for muscle gains for 1yr and now it has been 2yrs I habe not used them. They are still in my body??

Probably not: Supplements could mean anything, and unfortunately, may include ingredients that are not on the label, or may not even have the labeled ingredients nor the labeled amounts of said ingredients. Without knowing what ingredients were taken, one can guess that "supplements" don't stay in the body for more than a few days, or at most a month or two.
