Default Must Have Supplements For the Trainer?

It's good to be back at ABCbodybuilding as I've been gone for a while and to say the least, have fully committed to training and staying health.

I'm currently ~213 pounds and have been hitting the gym with great intensity for approximately 9 months and have seen great progress. I changed my diet religiously and have lost approximately 7 pounds, though I have seen positive significant changes in mass.

My goal is to now drop body fat and I am currently taking BCAAs & Whey Protein. Nothing else. Am I cutting myself & results short by not adding additional supplements? If so. Any suggestions of what else I should be taking?

My goal is to drop to ~203, sustain my current body frame, and drop body fat.

That is fine, I entered a bodybuilding show recently and was very lean. Throughout my prep I only used whey, creatine and BCAA. The final 3 weeks I used a caffeine pill (200mg) in the morning when I walked my dog. That was it, nothing fancy. Fat loss is accomplished by a sensible diet (assuming your training is in order).

I appreciate your feedback. I definitely need to add Creatine to the mix.

Also, I would like to see what your current split/routine is. That would be helpful to me as I currently hit a plateau and want to challenge myself to new levels!!!

My whole training is laid out in my journal:

Currently doing Legs, Pull, Push. I run it twice each week and take Sunday off.

I'm currently on a cut; all I use is whey, creatine, BCAAs, dextrose, and maltodextrin. There's nothing flashy on the market that can substitute having your diet and training in order; regardless of how much they claim.
