    Anybody remember the Vanadyl Sulfate craze of the mid-90s? There were stupid rumors about how great it was for some reson. Everybody I knew buying the stuff up. I think I blew $20-30 for a bottle, which did nothing. I was in school at the time, so that was almost all the dough I had.
    I can remember being in High School and asking for Cybergenics for Christmas. It was over $100 for all the crap, and I would've done anything to get it. I never got it, too bad because I'd be 295 & ripped by now if I had.

    Tribulus, Cybergenics, chromium picolinate, vanadyl sulfate, and of course, GNC "Distance" and "Mass Gainers" which are nothing but sugar at $30 a pound.............

    Does this count?


    Im not sure if this counts but about 6 years ago I was reading a Mens Health or Fitness or something of that nature and it said that jerking one off in the morning is a good testosterone booster for males. So I thought to myself, hey, cool now Ive got a reason to squeeze one off every chance I get and Besides the physical pleasure Im also promoting muscle growth. Well, All I can say is that had to be a load of crap because besides a few blisters, some forearm cramps, a weird addiction and a huge shower bill, It did absolutely nothing for me. But hey, Ive got to admit, it definitly was the most satisfing scam Ive ever been taking by.

    I told my wife and a bunch of her friends at work about that and they havent let it down yet. She just wont admit how much she likes to watch. Shes a freak, so am I, Were perfect for each other.

    Shamelessly yours,

    Swole V2 might have to build up, give it 2 weeks you'll feel it.. Just like a creatine pump, only lasts longer.. It took a week before I felt it, try that..

    definately agree. i bought 4 tubs and after 2 weeks thought i'd done my money again then all of a sudden i just got fuller & heaps more vascular.

    i drink the 1st serve while i'm training (in the morning) & for convenience i have the next serve after lunch.

    make sure you're getting plenty of water as my kidneys started to ache a bit but as soon as i upped my water intake i just got fuller & the pains went away.

    love it.

    I've noticed a few people list ZMA. I thought this was actually one of the supplements on the market with scientific evidence behind it. If not please let me know, thanks.

    It works for those people who have a Zinc deficiency brought about by workout/sports related activities or diet. It appears that the only way to tell for sure if it works for you is to try a bottle. The latest (and cheapest) brand I have tried to date is Biotest ZMA. It works for me.

    i actually liked effervescent creatine (fizz-fuel) and i still grab some when its on sale. I respond very well to creatine though.

    i though hmb, venadyl sulfate, liver tabs (for me), methoxy-pro, and testro-gel were wastes of my money.
