ForeRunner LabsThe Future of Human Performancehttp://anabolicminds.com/forum/pics/229429-my-fat-mess.html
Here's my application,I think I'd be a very good fit,I'll start off with a bit of my background and training history....
I',m 37 and have been training since the age of 25.I have a thorough grasp on physique/performance enhancement supplements,having done more than my fair share of pro hormones,as well as cough,cough...scheduled hormones.I regularly peruse the forums and Pubmed to further my understanding of such (legal) compounds and how to best utilize them in a safe manner.
In my more a-hem,illustrious past,I have used testosterone,anavar,deca,NPP and masteron.Modeate dosing of shorter estered test + var being my personal favorite.
Nowadays I stick to the legal compounds and with the demise of PP's lineup,I was happy to see that Andro factory offered fairly similiar compounds at decent price points.I've been running AF's Focus along with Lean Cut for the past 3 weeks and am overall very impressed.Considering the illicit compounds I've used in the past,that is a fairly bold statement that should carry a decent amount of weight.Focus feels like a test base,speaking in terms of cognitive processing and recovery whilst staving off lethargy which is commonly associated with pro-hormonal compounds.
PH's I've ran in the past include 1-T Tren ,Havoc,X-Tren,P-Mag,NorDerm and about half of the AMS & Fore Runner lineup.
Andro Factory is the first company to come along since AMS,Fore Runner and PP,which primarily offers pro-hormonals,that I find to be respectful of athletes and to be on the level so I would be honored to act as a product rep for AF.
I've been around the forums on a fairly regular basis for about a decade.I'm 37 and I have been training since the age of 23.I have posted much more on mindandmuscle.net/forums than AM as I was an Acant Labs board rep for over 2 years.Moreso to the point,back in the day,M&M was the most scientific based board and that is what inspired me to delve into Pubmed abstracts and the like.
I feel that my experience in both the realms of training and supplementation would make for a valuable addition to the AF team,considering I could help guide both older lifters like myself and younger guys towards their goals with what I've learned first hand,over the years.
In addition to Avant Labs,I have previously repped for Purus Labs and Live Long Nutrition.
I handled more than just basic rep duties at all of the companies I acted as a board rep for,such as drafting product writeups For Live Long Nutrition,which I will post up a copy of below....just to show that I am capable of intelligent thought
I'll go one step beyond that and post up a link to a thread on BB.com,which shows a slew of my posts as a Live Long rep,wherein I brought the effing science.I'm posting these links to show that I'm not the kind of guy who would be a subpar rep for AF,urging other board members to buy AF product on the grounds it'll make you soooper hyuuuge and ripped.In other words,I'm not big on bro-science
Foocox-10 & Burning The White Stuff
By Colin O'Malley
Please divulge me in my prefacing of this article with the expression of heartfelt love (yes,I'm over reaching here but its for a good point) I have for uncoupling agents.Using such compounds have proven invaluable in my past cutting endeavors.However,not all of us are willing to run cycles of DNP and furthermore,heavy handed uncouplers tend to have harsh side effects and make dieting all the worse.Aye,DNP and usnic acid mediate their magical fat loss effects directly from the thirteenth plane of Hell.
New compounds that may be used safely at any time clearly should be researched and several compounds have recently come into light.One of the more promising agents is fucoxanthin.
In order to describe the benefits of mitochondrial uncoupling,I will elucidate the role that uncoupling plays in body composition.Energy balance in animals is a metabolic state that exists when total body energy expenditure equals dietary energy intake. Energy expenditure, or thermogenesis, can be subcategorized into groups of obligatory and facultative metabolic processes. Brown adipose tissue (BAT), through the activity of uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1), is responsible for nonshivering thermogenesis, a major component of facultative thermogenesis in newborn humans and in small mammals. UCP1, found in the mitochondrial inner membrane in BAT, uncouples energy substrate oxidation from mitochondrial ATP production and hence results in the loss of potential energy as heat. Mice that do not express UCP1 (UCP1 knockouts) are markedly cold sensitive. The recent identification of four new homologs to UCP1 expressed in BAT, muscle, white adipose tissue, brain, and other tissues has been met by tremendous scientific interest. The hypothesis that the novel UCPs may regulate thermogenesis and/or fatty acid metabolism guides investigations worldwide.
I will illustrate a compound that not only acts as an uncoupler (1) but as a life extension tool via its potent antioxidant capabilities (2) and holds promise as a treatment of cancer(3).It also is regarded as a tool in the war against metabolic Syndrome and has multiple other functions within the body (4).It goes beyond uncoupling with regard to fat loss as it actively supresses fat gain by putting a stopgap,so to speak,in the growth of new fat cells. (5) So we have not only all of these attributes to weigh but another very big plus in fucoxanthin's column is that fucoxanthin chiefly manipulates UCP1,which bears nearly the sole impact on fat loss out of UCP1,UCP2 and UCP3 (6).
So we have established that fucoxanthin acts chiefly on UCP1 and this is primarily responsible for its application towards improving body composition.However,there is a large problem with fucoxathin,which no one has addressed yet in product formulation or even stack suggestions.This would be subpar oral bioavalability (7).If a product isn't orally bioavailable,little good will come of its use and thus,we are wasting our time and money.However,this issue can be easily circumvented if fucoxathin is taken with fat, (8) and (9) serve as examples but any other form of fat will do.Obviously,if or are not utilized,one should use a a desirable fat source that confers other beneficial properties e.g. Enova, , ,olive oil,flax seed oil,lecithin and so on.
Fucoxathin has several quite synergystic angles to exploit, being one of them. PPAR-alpha agonism via combined with PPARg antagonism would be great. The perfect combo would be PPAR-alpha agonism with gamma antagonism in adipocytes but gamma agonism in other tissues. This is essentially what SIRT-1 activation does in regards to gamma.
Guanidinopropionic Acid, and would also be just about the ideal complimentary choices in addition to Resveratrol.The latter would serve to further activate SIRT-1 while the former compounds in essence potentiate attainable benefits through quite a stunning layout of synergystic activity.

Yeah,that was a hell of a long post,I'll readily concede to that.
But I haven't been around here much lately so I thought an introduction of sorts was in order.Ya can't blame a guy for trying to sell himself a bit to get some side work
Hello, I'd like to dime in this. I'm a newb of these forums, but not of the fitness realm.
I have been using supplements for 3 years and training for about 5-6 years.
Day in and day out I research nutritional/fitness information to stay on the edge.
I'm interested in the company as it seems pretty solid and I like to keep an eye close to supplements.
That thread may be dated and posting it up may have been a bit of overkill,but come on man,let a brotha slide on that.I did a Google search for that product writeup I mentioned in my first post in this thread and I found it in the BB.com thread.I gotta say,I was kinda proud of all the ummm,big werdz,I used to answer questions about the product I was promoting at the time
Flex,I got your PM and tried PM'ing you back but your inbox was full.
To answer the question you PM'd me with....that'd be a yes,I'm Colin from mindandmuscle.
Thank you kindly,good sir.It's good to see you as well.
I'll be posting on AM much more often now that mindandmuscle is largely a dead forum and I've recently renewed my interest and dedication to training.
