As a High School teacher I am always lecturing about new supplements but it's tough to keep up with all the new stuff out there.  Does anyone have any insight into trending supplements right now.  Also, I noticed that EAS is a sponsor of the NSCA.  Do you think that influences the information that is put out there about supplement use?  Any feedback would be great.

I believe one of the trending supplements right now is the amino acid leucine.  There has been a lot of research over the past 5-10 years on this particular amino acid due to its ability to amplify the anabolic response to resistance training.  

Another supplement that I believe will start to have a resurgence in popularity is HMB (a metabolite of Leucine).

Bill,
What's opinion on Leucine, pre-resistance training?
Best wishes,
