Protien powder is an absolute must, and creatine is a good addition to get you started off. One "supplement" that people don't really value like they should is a lifting partner of a similar training background and strenth. You don't have to be exactly the same size, but as long as you both can handle what will be necessary to spot the other, that's fine. You will be able to share training tips and methods, and you can both bring new things to each others program to keep things interesting and motivational. Also, a trusted spot is invaluable to anyone trying to keep intensity in their workout. You can force those last couple of reps without fear of getting stuck or hurt (using proper form of course). You also have someone to set goals with, and somebody who won't put up with your excuses for not reaching them. It's also alot easier to get off your butt and get in there on low energy days when you know someone is counting on you.
