    Powerlifters and HGH, Insulin, and IGf-1


    We all know powerlifters take alot of androgens, and depending on the lifter HGH. Not alot of powerlifters I know mess with insluin and IGF-1. Why do you think Insulin and IGF-1 are so popular in the bodybuilding community, but not as much in powerlifting.

    I guess it's because when your goal is to gain mass things like IGF-1 and insulin are extremely effective to increase your body mass since they increase the number of cells that exist in your muscles. But when it comes to increase strength it doesn't depends on the amount of muscle you have, but rther the strength you have on the amount of muscle you have.
    Also, if you look at the effects of the androgens that powerlifters use are mainly androgenic and not anabolic (Cheque drops comes to mind)

    Most powerlifters i know don't get too concerned about their drugs. People on the message boards make steroid use more complicated than it really needs to be. When you start getting into insulin and HGH and things like that, you have to really start to learn your ****, most powerlifters i know spend their time reading about training and in the gym. They shoot alot of test, add some tren and orals in as the meets get closer. It is not complicated at all. Bodybuilding prep guru guys are like mad scientists, lol.

    However through hyperplasia if you have more muscle cells to fire on wouldn't that lead to a stronger total? I would assume you would have to train these new muscle cells to have the strongest CNS connection possible. After watching Ronnie Coleman deadlift and squat 800 lbs. on youtube I think something has to be said for this way of supplementation.

    Joints are another reason why I think these compounds should be used. Alot of powerlifters and strongmen have their careers cut short due to injuries and wear and tear on joints. If we are able to regenerate tendons, ligaments, and cartilage with IGF, growth, and slin why not?
