supplement question

Maybe it's not significant, but I was wondering if there were any particular supplements people recommend for this kind of lifting program

Currently I'm taking a daily multi : http://www.rainbowlight.com/immune-support-mens-one-multivitamin.aspx
and a fish oil supplement: Nordic Naturals ultimate omega--why it has added lemon flavor, I'll never know.

Both were sort of arbitrary choices, though the fish oil did seem to get good reviews. I don't have any complaints about either, but didn't know if I would benefit from something different (yet of a similar price point) while lifting.

Thoughts?

    How is your protein intake? If you are finding it low, then you could supplement protein, as well.

    ETA: Nevermind, I looked at your diary and see you use whey and seem to be getting sufficient protein.

    Creatine helps most people a little with strength

    Yeah, sorry. I probably should have mentioned it, but I tend to think of it as food instead of a supplement even though it is supplementing my diet.

    I think that's all you need. I'm not even doing that much. I have the vitamins and the fish oil, just too lazy to remember to take them. The lemon flavor in your fish oil is to help prevent fishy burps, or at least make them less fishy. Now you know.

    As for the protein, the more you can get from food the better. I have a ton of it, but I'm kind of saving it for doomsday. As for creatine...I've had a bottle sitting around for years that I could never bring myself to use. One of these days...after the doom threat has passed?
