I have been considering taking a multi vitamin as I often see it recommended as part of a weight training diet, however after looking at the micronutrients page on this site it seems that, for most of the entries, the supplementation of the vitamin/ mineral is listed as being either not necessary; not recommended; or both.

So is it likely to be worth it or not?

Whoa, I don't recall that saying that specifically on the vitamin page anywhere except for in the minerals section, there are certain minerals which are not necissary but adding extra vitamins to the diet wouldnt be a bad thing. It's worth it.

Adding AAs to the diet isn't necissary though since you easily get enough of those. The only one you would really consider is a ZMA or BCAA product.

Hmm, Interesting find, I didn't even know that section existed on this website. I thought you were responding to my vitamins post i created, I don't know if you ever checked that out but it has solid info on it. I would still recommend taking a multivitamin. Generally the only vitamins you have to worry about is fat soluble since those tend to stay in the body long than water soluble. Also iron you have to becareful of.

Also it is never truely necissary to take vitamins unless you are deficient or are taking it for some sort of ailment. It is just recommended since you get more of it. As you know vitamins are building blocks of the body.
