The MAN Cave
Any and all product questions or questions in general, post em up people!
All of us at MAN want to help you reach your goals, and make sure that you get quality advice and products along the way. We're a band of brothers here and want to make sure everyone is doing everything they can to reach their goals AND that we're doing whatever we can to provide quality information to all of you.
For those of you who don't know me:
The name's Rob, I'm 21, and finishing my 3rd and final year of undergraduate studies in Health Sciences. I've been on the boards as a rep before and joined MAN back in March after trying out some of their products that they had sent to me. Plus I work in sales and will be moving to corporate come September.
I don't get behind a brand I don't believe in, plain and simple. Hence why I ended up working for MAN Sports. Our products are awesome, and we make sure that there's no smoke and mirrors, just proven ingredients and efficacious dosing in all of our products.
A little bit about myself:
-I'm a natural bodybuilder and last competed in 2012, winning my Junior Class and placing 4th in an Open class of 9. (If you guys wanna see pics, I'm happy to post them )
-I help run the exercise physiology lab at Drexel University and always love doing research
-I'm a certified trainer, sports nutritionist, and have helped clients win shows, pro cards, etc, with my most recent client winning his IFPA pro card on April 27th
The 3 products that got me hooked:
-PR-XT: No doubt one of the most effective Natural Anabolics I've ever used. My weight didn't change much from it, but my appearance and numbers definitely did. 30+ lbs on my deadlift (now 470), 15 lbs on my squat (now 420), and overall one of most effective recomp phases I've ever had. Ran 1 bottle along with 1 bottle of.....
-Nolvadren XT: The one thing that intrigued me with this the most when I first got it was the 3-pronged approach it had. A novel aromatase inhibitor, DIM for estrogen modulation, and the 2 forms of 7-OH for cortisol control. Stacked so well with PR-XT and definitely dried me out and helped me achieve a drier, harder looking physique.
Game Day: I'm a stim junkie. I've said it numerous times across the forums. And I had to start with a 1/2 scoop. Steve urged me to try a 1/2 scoop to start and work up from there; I'm really glad I did since I felt awesome from the first dose. Plus the Blue bombsicle is flat out amazing in terms of taste.
So there you have it. Who I am. Why I'm here, and most importantly:
We here at MAN are all here to help you reach your goals
So let's have some fun in here. I mean, it is a MAN Cave after allMAN Sports Online Lead Rep and Sales

As if our crazy low prices on our awesome products weren't enough, this weekend Nutraplanet's Memorial Day sale saves an ADDITIONAL 12% off EVERYTHING in the store! I bet you people that have been following the great logs users have put up about Gameday are now going to see for themselves what's been causing PRs to break!

Memorial Day: one of the MANliest holidays we have. Charring animal flesh on the grill and washing it down with beer is indeed the epitome of MANliness.
What are some of your favorite things to grill? Any special recipes/seasonings/marinades?

Anyways, a bit of background for those who don't know me all too well (especially seeing as I've been absent/busy as fuark lately)
-23 yo, finishing up my degree in both Science of Nutrition & Exercise as well as Dietetics at Virginia Tech - one more semester.
-Have been lifting for the last 5 years, the last couple of which have been actually worth a damn (not bro-lifting, if you will).
-Studying to pass the ACSM CPT exam and get on the ball with that, as I love helping those willing to listen (key part). I also help many people across the boards through PMs with various supplement/nutrition advice, so feel free to get at me.
-End goal is to become a Sports Nutritionist, as I currently work with the SN program at VT and completely obliterated and updated our horrid Supplement Database this past semester.
MAN Products that hooked me:
-Body Octane was first. The taste alone sold me (was a bro at the time). The endurance and pump components came much later when I realized what they were, and have consistently kept this stud in my stash for obvious reasons: Even before becoming a rep. Easily go through 5 tubs a year.
-Clout was the second, despite the taste factor - I could notice the help it gave me both in the weight room and with cardio. Still the best creatine on the market, and may be making another appearance soon.
-NXT: Muuuuuuccchh later, after I was already sufficiently hooked on MAN came Nolvadren XT. I used it mid-last semester on a sponsored log and it instantly became a stapled product to run. Leaned me out unlike any other product I've run thus far, dat arimistane and 5AT/7OH ftw.
Allllllll that said and outta the way, I'm a hayuuge baseball fan and more importantly a Braves diehard. Any other baseball fans in here? I grew up playing the game up through high school, had to take some time off after tearing my RC but I'm looking to get back into the game in grad school next year seeing as my 4 years of eligibility are still available

About me:25 years old. I've been lifting since I was 17/18. I actually took a weight training class my senior year of high school so I could just get an easy A. Well, after having nothing else to do in class, I decided to actually try lifting some weight. My strength shot up through the roof after a few weeks and I could see a noticeable difference in my physique, from there I was hook and the rest is history. I remember that Christmas all I asked from my Mom was for a gym membership. Being the kind of person who usually does not finish what he starts, my parents were/are still amazed how body building/staying healthy has shaped my life and continues to do so. I have another 8 credits before I graduate with a B.S. in Psychology. After that, I plan on going to nursing school to become a nurse practitioner. For those who don't understand what that is, it's basically a doctor who can prescribe Rx without going through med-school nor achieving some of the merits a P.H.D offers. I would like to specialize in mental health, as that is something that holds close to me in my life.As my user name suggests I am a big car guy. Besides lifting/staying healthy, cars mean a lot to me. I grew up around cars and most of my money gets dumped into that aspect of my life. Friends don't let friends drive stock, haha. My ultimate dream is to open up my own performance car shop. Anyways, I have a 1999 Mustang GT and a 2013 WRX sedan. The Mustang is fully built (almost), but i'm still missing a good 25% of the parts to finish the build. For anyone interested, the car has a stock iron block with Manley rods/pistons, forged Kellog 8-bolt crank, stage 3 ported P.I. heads, custom grind Livernois turbo grind cams, HPP sheetmetal plenum w/ single oval throttle body, PTK turbo kit w/ 67mm Garrett turbo, Tremec TKO600 trans 26 spline, Centerforce DFX clutch, A1000 fuel pump, custom sump tank, 03 Cobra IRS, and a bunch of other crap. Pervious owner of the turbo kit w/ almost identical mods made 619rwp @18lbs on 93. I'm pretty hopeful I can make at least 670rwhp on E85 @ 20+lbs. I'll probably run meth on the car as well to get some more power out of it before moving to a bigger turbo.The WRX doesn't have much since I just got it a couple months ago but so far I have, FMS TMIC, Perrin CAI, Perrin pitch stop mount, Perrin heat shield, Turbosmart recirc valve, Cobb AP, Perrin Stage 1 tune (18.5 lbs). I just ordered a Perrin catted downpipe and a CNT catback. That's all i'll say about cars, since I could literally fill pages and pages just talking about cars lol.What got me into MAN Sports products? Their innovative products without cheap, under-dosed prop-blends. I loved how MAN uses ingredients backed by science and research. I'm also a bit of a pharmacology hobbyist, I like to read research articles and and info behind the science of any ingredient. Body Octane and Clout got me hooked on their products. No BS ingredient profiles with proper dosing to yield actual physique changing results. To this day I still use Body Octane and Clout (my own secret stash lol) as my staples.I stand behind MAN for their quality products that they not only made in the past, but continue to make now, and in the future. That's the short and sweet, any other questions/comments, feel free to ask or PM me.
