eh 16 is young but i was dabbeling with supps that young. stuff like NO2 and CE2 and others. The board spongers cant really chime in on this kind of stuff because if your not 18 they cant legally recommend anything for him. I would think a product that aids in the unbinding of natural test such as controlled labs has (forget which one its called) would be relatively safe.

controlled labs has a product to help unbind test??
are you thinking of divanil or activate xtreme??
and board sponsors, as you know i am above 18, is there anything else he can take, without causing detrimental harm to his body??

you cant be serious, dood. Let your "brother" know that he has enough test being produced for the next few years and he doesnt need any outside sources

for one, so sorry you cant believe that im 23 and i train my little bro, and i wasnt planning on him taking anything to increase test!
Brad suggested that he use a product to free up test, and he said Controlled labs puts out a product that does so, i am a strong believer in CL and know many reps there, so i was clearing up the fact they dont put a product like that out and he may be thinking of another product, he said he isnt sure, so i was telling him!
any products that DO NOT f*ck with your test levels that he can use, with improvements?

I doubt you're gonna get much help man. Even though you may be 23, you are still asking for advice about a 16 year old. Anyone who wishes to continue to use these boards is not gonna answer you. The rule still applies, even if they're telling a 23 year old. It's still advice about a 16 year old.
Keeping him on a high protein diet and a good exercise routine is all the advice that should be given at this time.

At 16 there really isnt any supplement you should take mate. Eat healthy, eat right for what you want(bulk/recomp/cut) and have a great workout routine. I know from highschool it didnt take much to add a few pounds of muscle back then....now....Eh....they still come decent though, just not as easy as before. Even at 18 Supps arent needed. I think 20-21 is golden for supps being useful. with the exception of PH/PS/AAS of course....which should be put off till 23-25 if you ever even use it.

sorry, totally forgot about blue up, i thought blue-up increases total test. not unbind it from SHGB

at 16 shouldn't even be doing heavy weights a bit of resistance training. the hormones are going nuts at this age so a protein shake after a workout is all he will need.
but hell i've seen idiots at the gym with thier 12 year old son loading 20kg plates on the bench. WTF

Man some of ya'll are really putting this guy through the blender for no real reason. There are several products a 16yo could take that wouldn't put him at risk.

"good anabolics for 16 yr old" i dont think you are taking this seriously. Besides some creatine and protein and a tonne of food he doesnt need any supps. Maybe something pre workout like vasocharge to get him in the mood for a good workout. i know young bucks can lose interest in things pretty quickly. But thats about it.

I'm gonna have to go with the guys and suggest that he waits until dabbling with hormones. During teenage years His body is calibrating his hormones for the rest of his life - so now would not be the time to play with it

If his diet is all set up like you say it is then he's going to gain 20-30 lbs in the next 3 or 4 months, what else do you think he needs.

honestly, i'm 16 and i dont see whats the big deal on the problem of taking sum supplements....
I take Wheybolic extreme 60, and PRO-NOS
its just basic protein with a little added Sh!t, its not like anything extreme...
nothing like creatine or weight gainers...
(just sum nutrients to help my muscles)
Being at 16.... dont need to take a load of Sh!t, ur bro got a long way to go. and so do I. Just eat alot and dont eat junk, and years will come.

May not be too much wrong with it besides it being almost completely unecessary. I have trained a lot of young people and all have had tremendous success depending on how well they listened and followed their diet. I have never recommended anything besides protein and vitamins.

Ever take into consideration hat a 16yo is pretty much at the mercy of their parents shopping and cooking? Unless he has a job and a place to allow a small fridge, buying all the proper whole foods may not be realistic. Especially if you have issues with brother's and sister's etc. 30 bucks for some protein shakes isn't hard if your diet isn't complete. I have yet to see any suggestions for a Multi-V

"diet on point" usually means, I don't feel like hearing about eating right and push me to the supplements. If you're truely looking for solid advice for your brother then you need to throw all of his information out there including what his diet is. I haven't met too many 16year olds who have their diet on point. I've met a lot who happened to be where they are weight wise but not for proper nutrition or to attain their goals.

Many good suggestions already. At this point you should really just motivate him to manipulate his training and how he eats to maximize his results. Motivate him to go the gym and absolutely destroy his legs in order to get the surge of test and hormones he thinks that only supplements deliver. Urge him to do one more set right when he thinks he cant...its almost like popping a test booster. Explain to him how food already creates the anabolic signals that many supplements will allege to deliver. Tell him that for many men, these supplements simply exist to get older guys just a little bit closer to the physical state that he is already in. He already has it made, he just has to put in the work. If things aren't happening quick enough for him, work harder and eat more!
Whey,Multi, Fish Oil, Creatine, FOOOOD!
