What is one supplement you always want to have?

Page 2 of 5 First 1234 ... Last

  1. Top things I've been using is

    GDAs, random pre work outs, creatine, & a pump product with the occasional protein.

    Its good we are listing staples so keep that up but I also want to hear products outside the norm as well.

    Deads really get the colon rockin'. It's a great intestinal cleansing excercise.

    Really, though, I think deads are the epitome of strength. If you can't (or don't) do them, your training is pointless....

    I agree 100%. it's the best raw strength movement there is. Just pure strength, no bounce, no momentum to help, nothing. Brute strength.

  4. Cre02 from MST, great strength increases, kickass pumps and the added adaptogens which are pretty potent at times. I love MVP as well.

  5. For non staples, I just tried Xero Limit Labs Eponox. The stuff is amazing. A bit pricey, but if you've got the extra cash, give it a try. Think of it like BSN Ntrix, but 1/2 the price and 10x as effective! I get that "perpetual pump" and my veins are looking sick. Not bad for an overweight powerlifter. Hahahaha

    Please remember how the industry and its consumer always dispute the validity of the benefits that are associated with mice testing as invalid when applied to humans. The negatives should also be approached with similar skepticism. IMHO

    Main reason I use UniLiver is I'm a big fan of the brand. But I think everybody should take some sort of desiccated liver tablet. People always overlook the easiest/cheapest ways to make gains. There is a really complete glandular pack on the market called Gland-All. Its by Hot Stuff Nutritionals. Check it out.

    Definitely. There are so many fly by night companies now that it's scary. Universal though, has been around for 35 years! They really stand by their products. I'm on both their forums (UniversalUSA and Animalpak) and know guys who have ordered their products through other sites and had issues with it (clumping, broken tablets, no scooper... you know, basic stuff) and they personally replace them or make it right without having to deal with the sales site they got it through. That's customer service! Not to mention all the promos they run, beta testing that they do and all the charities they work with. Gotta love a company that gives back.

    Well, I'd actually say the opposite is true (people too easily extrapolate rodent data to humans), but I do agree that we notice something of a "mitigated" effect when going from rats to humans (i.e. bulbine, agmatine, and yes, berberine). I still think berberine is better used on a cut due to its activity in the small intestine, though.

    You are correct, I did mean the opposite.

    I also notice anecdotally that it is best used for dieting as well.

    I agree...one of the few exercises you really can't cheat at

    Anabolic Pump is often conceptualized as merely a supplement of glucose homeostasis. While that's true in part, its true identity is one of energy metabolism as a whole; specifically, modulating energy expenditure and transfer in both fat and muscle cells, via the modulation of energy storage and production mechanisms.

    During a long bout of exercise (i.e., an hour long resistance training session) your body's energy homeostasis mechanisms need to take on a more oxidative (the B-oxidation of fatty acids) as opposed to glycolytic (GLUT4 translocation and glucose storage) role. This is due in part to the inability of the body to produce the fuel (glucose) for anabolic processes at the rates needed for anaerobic exercise. In response, your body has in place several mechanisms which prevent the accumulation and synthesis of triglycerides and lipids, and release them into the bloodstream to be oxidized.

    These lipolytic processes actually contribute to the majority of energy transaction in a bout of anaerobic exercise - the oxidation of fatty acids and plasma triglycerides, primarily, provide the energy for resistance training.

    The reason I mention all this is Anabolic Pump's fascinating ability to regulate one of the vanguards of oxidative and glycolytic energy consumption - AMPk. AMPk works as an essential gate-keeper of energy production, reacting to extracellular fluctuations of various downstream energy messengers (AMP:ATP ratio included). Its activation is responsible for various roles, including all of the above mentioned.

    Using such a product in conjunction with fasted cardio simply utilizes energy which would have been stored anyway. The mere presence of AMPk ensures that the liberated fatty acids and triglycerides will be oxidized as it plays a primary role in not only lipolysis, but the inhibition of lipid, triglyceride, and cholesterol synthesis.

    In terms of blood glucose, you should have circulating plasma levels which are enough to stave off hypoglycaemia, even with the use of Anabolic Pump. As carbohydrates have not been ingested, the presence of Insulin (the main inducer of hypoglycemia) is not necessarily present. Anabolic Pump works through Insulin-reactive, though not dependent, pathways of energy metabolism. The lipolytic role is also enough to provide ample energy.
    Just an AP tidbit. ^^^

    I miss the Mullet some times.

  16. When you stArt working out, your body stops digesting things (I think)? If this is true- would it be pointless to take anabolic DURING a lift, before abs and post workout cardio?

    I ask bc I WARMUP with jogging+ 20mins hiit. THEN lift. Then do a little more cardio post lift. I cannot do my hiit fasted with AP, my energy takes a huge hit.

    But you find no problem with bulking on it? What would you guys think about it for a recomp?

    I only recomp and it is ideally used, IME, for just that. See my previous post regarding AP here - What is one supplement you always want to have?

    Actually FFA's are a much more sustainable form of energy and for me the preferred source for my goals.
