I'm not sure if I should start taking a ZMA

I currently take a high performance creatine and am going to start taking a weight gainer after I workout because I have football practice right after working out
our only break is a 30 minute chalk talk in between the two sessions
I'm looking for better recovery of my muscles because my weight gains have stalled since I started having football right after

my workout is on my log if it makes a difference
any suggestions/input appreciated

ZMA is a great addition to any supplement regimen. Great for recovery...deep deep sleep bonus is the vivid dreams

ZMA is a very cheap supplement and if nothing else, it is worth the money to have some interesting dreams. ZMA will improve recovery and slightly raise free testosterone if you are lacking those minerals in your diet but if you already get them in your diet, it will have little to no effect on recovery and testosterone. I say give it a go.

Hey buddy. Try it out, its not going to help much with weight gain though. Like all these other guys said it will allow you sleep deeper, dream some, and may raise test levels a little. My practices were set up the same way in high school with weight lifting then shortly after that practice. If you want to try a weight gainer I hear that cytogainer isnt bad.

You should also try upping your calories in the morning and at lunch. Boiled eggs and Bagels with peanut butter, whatever you can get your hands on. That will help with the weight gain.

Also try to get some gatorade in during that chalk talk. That sugar will be much needed for refueling and maintaining your explosiveness

ps- like the creator said if you already eat a lot of shellfish dont even bother taking it. Or if you eat shellfish that day then dont waste your zma that day. Maybe thats why oysters make me so horny lol

ZMA & melatonin is an even better combo.
