There's a lot better information here than that other *shudder* place.
You still should have applauded my memory.

definitly impressive transformation!
Keep up the awesome work.

LMAO!Man I'm a tard sometimes. Hey Achiles I thought that was you in your avatar until I saw the pic elsewhere today. I dunno what the hell it is but when I see avatars with pics of dudes in them (especially if they're not famous or I can't see their face) I think it's the person's pic????? I need to go to sleep now.

The nation? I quit b/c of censorship issues...and the farwell post I wrote to everyone (censored of course) got me kicked off. The site has gone downhill lately......
As for pictures....lets just say I've made some SERIOUS progresss and if I went back there to post pics it would be "look at me now...."
Foopa's doing quite well except she's upset that I put new laminate floors in the house (which is a lot cleaner too except for the sawdust) b/c it's harder for her to run. She ends up slipping and sliding all over
03-28-2006, 03:36 PM
You know it's kinda funny that you got banned Powda. I've said some of the most retarded offensive nonsensical (sp?) ish on that board and still only gotten a warning here and there. Of course I'd never really say anthing about their products, even if I did it was edited, so I guess you can take what you want from that. Aaaannway nice to see you two upstanding gentlemen here and I look forward to hearing from you. BTW, in case you hadn't picked up on this yet, the supplement companies that advertise on this board are run by very cool guys who treat there customers like gold and are real considerate of ANY type of feedback. At least the ones I've dealt with so far, and I'm not much for ****riding so that should mean alot.

I'm pretty fond of anabolicx....Compare the post the posts made about stimulant X to say Spike....I wrote a reivew of Spike that was extremely in depth and based on nearly 10 people's experience..and how many were non-responders and how some on other forums were getting sick from the product and it was censored. On here it's all game.
On a side note Wideguy I was banned there once before...as have a lot of people. They just edit the posts down. Hell I had a post edited in which I said Strawberry Grow doesn't take as good better than other strawberry products and Orange just does not go with Protein. They of course left in the part that I liked the chocolate flavor.... Care to know the mod that did that one? Our very own Atomic Dog....
Another example: I had a post censored b/c I told someone that you could get regular hot-rox cheaper on a mg/mg basis from other sites.... I was asked to "change the way I think."
Oh well enough ranting...great progress btw Rockscar.
03-28-2006, 06:11 PM
NOT to hijack, but this is the reason I was bent out of shape when Aspire compared AX to BioTest!!! A company that acts like McCartney's little brother, and thats not offensive??? Ok I am off my soapbox now... I left BioTest alone once they said ephedra was obsolete...
03-28-2006, 08:06 PM
Yeah I bought into it for awhile...believing that all other products sucked b.c they had their authors write articles on them....then one day I stumbled across another supplement store that let users review the products and noticed that Biotest's products were getting the axe and everything else was getting the gold....And then the whole thing when I posted people were having negative or no reactions to Spike and instead of adressing the issue they write an article saying we're not using it correctly.....I was done.Originally Posted by Apowerz6
I almost felt like a traitor though b/c they sent me a lot of free stuff (bottle of spike, 13 tubs of Grow, box of MD bars) when I got into a debate with them once
As far as Hot-Rox and ephedrine... Honestly I think Hot-Rox is a good product and possibly equivelant to ephedrine in terms of fat loss. You give either product to a sedentary individual and Ephedrine/Caffeine will win hands down b/c of suppresses appetite more but in terms of metabolic effect it's a close call!
03-28-2006, 08:17 PM
That board is a complete joke. Their censorship is borderline draconian.
I know of someone who's seen a few of the authors there... and he said they are toothpicks.. literally do not look like they train.. yet they write training articles....
03-28-2006, 08:29 PM
Ok I will rant about the forums and the products but I will not rant about the articles. They have a lot of GOOD authors...Dr. John Berardi for exampe, Chad Waterbury. I've met Chad Waterbury in person and he's a pretty damn big guy and so is John Berardi, not to mention one of the most knowledgeable people in the industry. And those are their two best writers. Then again one of the other writers...well he had a nice beer belly but I won't dispute his coaching ability; he's awesome. Truly I think they have or had some of the best articles on the net. And TC is hysterical.Originally Posted by Ubiquitous

I should have actually mentioned them as the exception.. Chad and Berardi.
anyways, I get angry talking about that place.. so stop it.

Yeah we need to end this hijack....Originally Posted by Ubiquitous

Yeah Powda you are a big guy, glad to have you over here you seem pretty Knowledgable!!! last hijack to this though I have used Hot Rox it is effective for 2months plus, but who wants too wait two months for some kick ass ECA like type of effect??? ANywho Rockscar keep up the good work hijack over I promise !!!
03-29-2006, 11:27 AM
It's quite allright. I have not had the same experiences as Powda but that's because I don't worship their supps, so I don't really get into it their. I usually come here to look into supps and other things along those lines...Originally Posted by Apowerz6
I'll post agin when I get to 185.

Thanks for the kudos! I haven't ever used Hot-Rox for more than 4 weeks. My opinion is that if it's taking 2 months to see the results you want, your diet, not your supplements, needs to be revamped. Personally I think a really powerful stack is just plain caffeine + ephedrine HCL. I was taking that Fedra product + San's T2 a week or two ago. The good news was that I was up til 2am banging in floorboards in my house; the bad news was that I could feel my blood pressure shooting sky high (as in pulsating in my head) and that I couldn't sleep. Also I just stopped cold turkey after a week and got sick as hell for about two days. I felt like I had a fever yet my body temperature was only 97, and I couldn't move...caffeine withdrawl anyone? I should've tapered...Originally Posted by Apowerz6

Yeah caffine withdrawl is nuts when I stop cold turkeyi do 2 grams of L-tyrosine to ease the headache...

That's amazing results. I however find putting on muscle seems to be a bit of a chore. I'm 6'1 and 150lbs. I do workout 5 days a week but seems as though I can't eat enough. I also would like to be rid of my bulging stomach. I have a six-pack but the bottom muscle is barely showing. How can I rid of this excess fat while bulking at the same time?
03-29-2006, 12:27 PM
Typically this approach is counterproductive in the overall bulking process. You CAn do it, but it takes a long long time for results.Originally Posted by Ectofighter
1. You feel like you can't eat enough.
2. You are 150 and 6'1.
3. You feel you have a bulging stomach.
Number 2 and 3 really don't equate together. 1 and 2 are the things you should concentrate on. You do not need to even be looking at your stomach right now. Look at the core chest, shoulders back and legs. As these things grow, even with bulking fat that is essential your gut will not show as much since your frame will grow at a fater rate.
I'd go with force feeding 5k calories and lift heavy. If you do not put on 5-7 lbs in a month I'd be surprised.

Focus on keeping your back straighter (e.g. get rid of that lordosis). Try this: contract your glutes when you stand and you'll notice that you'll also have to co-contract your TVA (suck in your stomach) while also sticking your chest out like you're in the military....voila your gut is gone.
Now you're 6'1 and 150...while this might be an acceptable weight in Somalia (not to step on anyone's toes) it's not an acceptable weight in a bodybuilding community. You NEED to eat and lift...Get you ass to the gym 3-5x a week, lift some weights for lower reps (no more than 12, preferably 6-8), and do these lifts
2) Military press
Or variations of these lifts
Cleans are also great...
Foods: Eat more calorically dense foods, e.g. Dried fruits instead of regular fruits, lots of nuts, peanut or almond butter, MEAT...
And one of the cheapest but densest foods..Pop-Tarts. Eat two pop tarts and some form of a protein shake 30 minutes prior to every workout.
And for reference why do I reccomened pop tarts before a workout? They have a GI of 70 which is moderate/high. By the time the sugar hits the bloodstream you should be working out which will blunt your insulin response....so rather than taking dextrose which will be absorbed too quick pop tarts are great..and they're cheap.
