    what ever happened to all the Anabolic Pump fanatics? Was it a one night wonder or are people still seeing great effects?


  2. They either:

    1. Went to real insulin instead
    2. Went to whatever is the next 'hype'. It happens all the time.

    Yeah, there's a really big "Flavor of the week" bit that goes with the supplement industry. It's quite a shame because there's been plenty of really good things that have gone forgotten as less effective, but strongly hyped things come to the playing table.

  4. Coming from a rep, I know it doesn't mean as much, but I was singing it's praises well beforehand...

    ...It's still a top selling product, but like all most supplements, after the intial burst of interest, it dies out a little on the boards and people are looking for the next big thing.

    It's turned into a product that doesn't need the hype, because of the results everyone has already seen...

    ...plus I do still see threads about it popping up every few days.

  5. So, because there isn't a thread about AP on every page, it is failure? I guess you haven't noticed how it is a staple supplement for many people because it is one of the few supplements that helps you from a health perspective and a physique perspective. It is a little pricey for me, but the 2 bottles that I used gave me some solid results.

  6. A lot of companies will tout sales as a backing for products.

    I feel this is a 'loaded' statement, much like Muscle-Tech's fancy graphs and ads.

    Does companies truely believe that their product is the best because it sells well ? Doesn't Muscle-Tech sell a lot too ? Does that mean my dormant fibers will be stimulated, and that my 'genes' will be activated ? This is a rhetorical question btw.

    There are many factors that play into sales:

    -fancy containers (yes, people buy stuff because of the container)
    -advertising
    -forum hype
    -Jay Cutler and the other IFBB pros
    -placebo effect
    -It may actually work

    Ok, so 'it may actually work' is only one of many options on that list so it easily can be accredited to 'it works' along with several other factors listed above.


    Bottom line is tha dollaz. Everyone's gotta make a living and there is no such thing in life as having too much money. Someone is getting paid, regardless if these supps work or not.


    If you want to 'carb load' just use insulin, it works. If you want to have an 'anabolic cheat code' use IGF-1 LR3,HGH, insulin,plasma expander, and your choice of steroid.

    Well, and first let me say that I do not respect MT as an "innovator", Cell-tech and Nitro-tech do work, but they are horribly over-priced. I know many people that use these or have used these because they fall into the staple category. Most of their products are gone within a year b/c they don't live up to expectations. AP is something that many people do not:
    1. understand
    2. properly dose
    3. give enough time
    4. expect to overcome crappy diet/training

    There is too much emphasis on supplements and when the word "Anabolic" is in the title, people expect to blow up in a month.

  8. True a lot of big companies do that...and it works for them

    The good thing about a forum like this and the companies that associate themselves with it, are that they get direct consumer feedback and can address question/concerns.

    ...which, IMO, leads to more authentic/innovative products

  9. rodja, I agree, I think the biggest problem with AP is the diet and timing issue.

    The easiest way to tell that people don't do their research is when there are 100's of threads about AP dosing/timing. If you do not use a supplement properly, then it will lose some of its efficacy. I followed the AP release closely and waited until I understood how to use it properly before I even opened the bottle.

  11. I get the runs really bad on it...can't use it.

    It does work though.

    Brilliant! You know it works when you fall into a coma!

    How about taking another companies word for it and probably one of the best "lab" subjects on the planet.

    WOW--225lbs x 45 Reps--Is he a beast or just crazy?

  13. I cannot see the video since I am currently at work, however I checked out the post.

    I'll give USPLabs props: SuperCissus RX helped greatly with my tendonitis.

    Some cat doing squats on the smith machine. Nothing impressive.

    Rumor has it he is going for the workd record for reps on the thigh master...


  17. Nothing impressive? Would you like to back that one up?

  18. hm, smith machine. ic.

  19. reaper, goto that thread...the guy did 210 reps in 7 sets...

    ...thats just impressive.

  20. ill check it out when i get back home. i wish i could watch vids at work.

    Nothing on a machine is really impressive.

    I bust my ass everyday in the gym buddy, sorry you are offended that I am not impressed by high reps on a machine...

    Impressive is subjective.

    You and me both.

  24. Everything gets hyped when its new. Doesnt mean its no good since the noise has died down. I used it when it first came out and saw good results. Ive been off it for the summer since my diet and training took a whole new twist the past four months but i have a bunch in the closet that will see use very soon.

    It's not that I'm not impressed, but rather I just don't see the point in doing this. What does 225 for 45 accomplish aside from being really sore the next day?

  26. I'm not that one who did it, go ask him...he is on the board.

  27. I have been using AP off and on for a LONG while now, and it will remain a staple for me.
