    Bobo do you mind me asking what HMB you've had success with? I must admit I've never really thought about using it so I've never really done any reading on it.

    No fun for many people

    HMB works really well in conjunction with CEE. I've been saying its good for years now.

    I just started taking CEE (for the 2nd time) this Monday. Maybe I'll break into my HMB.

    For the shoulder measurement, I just measure all the way around my shoulders (front to back). I use the myotape, so I just fully unwind it, get inside circle, and push the button to tighten it around my shoulders.

    Yeah, my dumbass realized this shortly after I asked the question. Thanks.

    UI aggreee with the beast,that if you´re at ur traininglimit,with yearlong stremnous routine a tiny little bit can make a huge difference.

    It´s only you need to buy a lot of certain supps to make them work nbut they do work at least for some and if used properly they cost as much or more than a steroid-cacle and need more compliance in taking them severyl times a day at a self-measured dose,but on the other hand they have little to no sides and really help a lot.

My biggest thing is constantly overreachng/training. Instead of taking it slow and steady with solid gains in both strength AND musculature, I tend to get too into it and want it all now. I end up getting big strength gains quickly then go straight into overtraining and have to take time off. Then wash and repeat. It's a vicious cycle that wouldn't be a problem if ego didn't come into play. I think my biggest problem, and many people's problem, is that there just isn't enough patience and proper pacing to get the job done right. I think that is probably one of Derek's keys to success (just gussing here). He paces himself properly (how close is this to the truth?). Remember, slow and steady wins the race. If only I could now adopt that motto.
    wow..i thought i was the only one. this is me now.

    But on the note of genetics agreed it plays a big part, but I personally don't have the best genetics in the fat storing department. Both sides of my family are overweight and have trouble mainting a decent weight.

    In highschool i was fat...5'6" 210 at least 25% bf..I started lifting hard at 17, and by the time i was 20-21, I was 175 @5.5% bf....all natrual at that point....I think someone said this above and i kinda agree...a lot of people use "ph/aas" to try and offset their laziness..and I have turned into one of those people....only now am i starting to turn the tables.

    I dunno if I can ever get it to where i am keep charts like that though..lol. that is impressive.

    how about that

    A dose-finding study on the effects of branch chain amino acids on surrogate markers of brain dopamine function.

    Gijsman HJ, Scarna A, Harmer CJ, McTavish SB, Odontiadis J, Cowen PJ, Goodwin GM.

    University of Oxford, Department of Psychiatry, Warneford Hospital, Oxford OX3 7JX, UK.

    RATIONALE: We have previously shown in healthy volunteers that an amino acid mixture lacking tyrosine and phenylalanine reduces tyrosine availability to the brain and produces cognitive and neuroendocrine effects consistent with reduced dopamine function. This could provide a potential nutritional approach to disorders such as mania and schizophrenia, which are characterised by overactivity of dopamine pathways. The amino acid mixture we tested previously is unpalatable, whereas mixtures containing only branch chain amino acids can be made more palatable. However, the effects of such mixtures on dopamine function in humans have not been studied. OBJECTIVE: To assess the tolerability of different doses of branch chain amino acids and to measure their effects on neuroendocrine and cognitive measures sensitive to changes in dopamine function. METHODS: We used a randomised, double-blind, cross-over design in 12 healthy volunteers to assess the effect of single oral doses of 10 g, 30 g and 60 g branch chain amino acids on plasma prolactin and a test of spatial recognition memory RESULTS: The branch chain amino acids were well tolerated. The availability of tyrosine for brain catecholamine synthesis decreased in a dose-related manner. As hypothesised, the drink increased both the plasma prolactin and the latency to respond on the spatial recognition memory task. CONCLUSIONS: A drink containing branch chain amino acids is well tolerated in healthy volunteers and produces effects consistent with lowered dopamine function.

    I'm guessing it had something to do w/board sponsorship and competition.

    I assume the testing thread was deleted because PrimaForce is not a sponsor. I was not sure if the testing was allowed or not when I posted it, so it is understandable that it was deleted.

    cool; if you still want a tester i can PM you details and post a log here and over at avant for everyone to read. there's nothing prohibiting somebody from giving a product a fair trial.
