Bodybuilding Scams

  1. Bodybuilding Scams


    I know we've all been duped at one time or another by a so-called miracle bodybuilding supplement.  I fell for Cybergenics and ipriflavone.  What have you fallen for? 


  2. Methoxy pro ....Bastards

  3. Cutting gel, I know what WC Fields said and it is true.  Also, testrogel.  I seem to have more money than sense but I am quickly becoming cynical.

  4. liquid creatine man.....way back when it first got introduced and my knowledge of the supps world were minimal at best. (luckily, only set me back $10)

  5. i will be the one to say it . cell-tech , i bought some my junior year in high school so it was about 5 years ago . and i still have the tub i use it as a drink holder next to the comp.. and i will ad that back then the 4.3lb tub was 80 bucks . ouch .........

  6. Methoxy pro

    and Liquid Creatine Resum by Vyotech (with about 8g worth of added Twinlab Creatine fuel capsules) got some good pumps though.
    Read This Book!!: Anabolic Steroids and the Athlete by William N. Taylor M.D.

  7. i too have more money than sense sometimes! Here is all the crap that i have purchased in the past!

    1) HMB ($120 cdn for 1 month supply! what was i thinking!)
    2) Pyruvate
    3) andro poppers
    4) methoxy pro
    5) metabolic thyrolean by prolab
    6) cell tech....might as well have drank koolaid!


    and im sure there will be more in the future

  8. i really didnt get ripped off on price, but i had to try it out myself, so Ultimate Nutrition HMB.

  9. HMB, pyruvate, and cutting gel. So sad isn't it? HMB got quite a bit of people around the later 90's, got me the bastards!! EAS made so much off of that stuff!

  10. some people still rave about hmb...but its only effective in very large dosages such as 4 grams per day...and i dont know about you guys but thats just a little outta my price range!

  11. Nitrotech. I am not proud.

  12. 1. Effervescent Creatine
    2. Cell Tech
    3. Nitro Tech(just the expense of the product...I made gains with it, but of course I could have made just as many as Whey Isolate)
    4. HMB
    5. Myostatin Binders- "Myostim"* (*verdict not in yet....continuing use )

    Some VPX like Paradeca, Decavar. Just my opinion.  I have gotten more bullets from other products cheaper that them.  Works less than they claim.

    Pyruvate didnt work for ya?

  15. Effervescent Creatine ,Dymatize Deca-Force Reactor and creatine serum

  16. I did cybergenics.....

  17. Ive never had much money to blow on 'new' supplements. I always waited for feedback before I bought anything, but to be honest, I bought several bottles of good ol' andro in 98 after the McGwire deal and my strength went through the roof and I gained some weight but I got a small case of gyno and had some swelling in my prostate, which was painful as hell. The prostate has subsided, but if you look close enough, the gyno is still there.... I wouldnt call it a total waste, because back then, it was popular as hell and it was the only thing I really knew. I had messed around with Sust and anadrol, but only enough to bloat me.

  18. I bought this **** called "T-1" from this place called "BDC"......

     

     

    Just joking.

  19. Muscle builder by Weider was one of the first supps I ever bought. Some others were Natural sterol complex/ Universal....Methoxy pro....pinnacle/ creaglutide.....hmb......betag en. Yea, I was a sucker....then I stumbled on to bb.com where I got advice from some good bros.

  20. oh im the smart one who did consumer research before buying a product.

    Geez, that was back in the late 80's or early 90's...how far we have come!

    Admit it, you tried to make it transdermal, eh?

    I was violated by Cybergenics, anything that had Weider's vile name scribbled across, and GNC's Pro Performance line, worst tasting whey I ever wasted money on..

     

  23. Boron and pyruvate.

  24. Dibencozide sublingual...LOL what a joke (i know you some of you aged ones took it, admit it!) Cybergenics, I managed to hit my all time lowest weight on that (those multi sets of negatives beyond failure worked me over pretty good - 168lbs @ 6'1 (presently 218lbs).I also recall my tan changing to an orange tint after i started using the supps).....WOW, good times.

  25. I've bought all kinds of dumb **** before I started doing research on the internet. Cell-tech, Animal stak, The beast, methoxy-pro, ZMA, night-time protien...

  26. I bought into Cybergenics and IcoPro

  27. Sounds like everyone has pretty much named every product GNC has sold.

    Hollywood 24hr diet. Never tried but im sure theres some horror stories of the 24hrs on the toilet.

    Makes my ass hurt thinking about it.
    db

  28. Methoxy, Cell-Tech, 20-Hydroxyecdysterone. I guess some of us learned the hard way

  29. Nitro-Tech/Cell-Tech stack. Let's see, I was 15, I got a part time job, saved my money, bought the crap, and used it for 6 months while lifting in School. I gained squat with it.

  30. Andro Poppers and HMB.

  31. ZMA. It was expensive crap at the time too. And liquid creatine.

  32. Cybergenics.....overtrained like a mofo and hurt my back to boot! Winter of 89! Cost me going to the state meet in wrestling my junior year!

    We live and learn.


    Somebody mentioned Weider's Muscle Builder....I cut my teeth on that and a DP bench with concrete weights! HA! I haven't thought about that in a while.

  33. cell tech, nitro tech, ZMA(not bad product just too much $$),a few bottles of GNC brand mega men timed release multi's, and gnc's gainer which had like 50+crabs and only 15g protien...

    and i was just today thinking about buying myo-blast by cytodyne.. those before and after pics are just far to impressive for me to let this great oppertunity pass me by.

  34. I think most of us might be guilty of the whole cell-tech deal....i've tried it...also HMB...pyruvate....probably more..just can't think off the top of my head.

    oh yeah...andro poppers..haha..thats funny

    every time i hear those two words I laugh


    triangle boxes were cool

     


    h19

  35. oh yeah the absolute worst was this egg protein powder from GNC that you actually cooked and it came out looking like scrambled eggs...HORRIBLE..still ate it though..

  36. I would say Andro Poppers too, I did alot of research so I never bought into the Muscle**** products.....

    I could see that ripoff a mile away.......
    but that $30 I spent on those minty Andro Poppers was some bull****.....

    you and me both... luckily i got on Anthony Ellis's board and learned the base of my knowledge there

    I guess glutamine? jury is still out on that one, DC says its good...

    bought Isopure Whey protein, high quality stuff but definitely overpriced

  38. Tribulus

    I remember that, prior to my 2nd left knee operation, a doctor asked me that same question in order to determine whether or not any medication would be altered because of the supplements that I was using at the time or have used in the past. By the time we were done discussing that issue, I had filled an entire legal sized paper. That's been a while so I doubt if I'll remember ALL of the crap that I've fallen for since 1985:

    super sterol complex
    dessecrated liver tabs
    inosine
    dibencozide sublingual (thanks Boarder1, I thought I was the only one.....LOL)
    boron
    Metalabol mix (what a crock)
    Genesis Nutrition's Animal Pak (gave me the ****s)
    hmb
    Cybergenics Cybercuts
    Twinlab's MCT Fuel (nasty orange oil... )
    Met-Rx

    The only Weider product that ever worked for me were probably the Body Shaper protein mix and chromium picolinate but I also maintained a proper diet and workout regiment while using them.

    I dunno, DC shovels in the Optimum pro complex which already has glutamine in it. He doesn't take glut separately...

    But, who am I to speak? I never used it enough to form an opinion either way.

    I've tried Cell Tech, by the way, though it was just half a jug given to me by a friend.

    I've also gone through several bottles of tribulus, thinking that maybe it was just the brand I was taking...
