Beta-Alanine is a staple for me. That, BCAAs, Poseidon, and SuperCarb are what I drink during my training. I like to take ecdysterone when I am prepping for a fight because of its stimulation of EPO, which increases RBC count.M.Ed. Ex Phys

I didn't see them offering any specific quantitative values for their ingredients. You want to know what your paying for. I don't know, it looks kind of gimicy.NSCA - CSCS

Beta-Alanine would make the most sense off the top of my head

the kata thing is a joke man , but in all seriousness I liked cordygen 5 as a ergogenic aid for mma style training if your volumes are real high , it is by millenium sport nutrition and comes pretty cheap on nutra , get a few bottles to dose it high and you should see decent performance enhancements

nice ill check it out^. have you guys heard of this steroid alternative product heres a link
would this work like a steroid? and would you test positive if you took this? not saying im gunna go out and buy this just wondering
02-26-2008, 06:06 PM
my experience with all these steroid replacements (though I have only used superdrol in the past -poison!) is that 99 percent of people have trouble keeping gains , gains come at a price of side effects and decreased training ( forearms too pumped to even squeeze a gi) and screwed up hormone balances in the body. My advice is to stay away from anything even remotely hormonal. If you want a boost eat 4 -8 ounces of raw white button mushroom every day , by day 14-28 you should see significant strength increases cycle off for 7 days and repeat.

^ok sounds good. what about HGH is that safe to take i heard its undetectable during tests. many mma fighters take it. Im not saying who.

I don't know at what level you are competing at but most shows won't conduct any drug testing. So if so inclined you could run phs and likely get away with it. Beta-alanine and citrulline malate are highly recommnded. Cordygen 5 looks like a promising supp but I haven't yet used it so I can't recommend it yet. I never found ecdy to boost rbc or vo2 max but I did find GliSODin to help in that area.
02-27-2008, 05:37 PM
what do you mean by phs kind of new to all these words? well a new gym opened up where i live and my friend is joined in it and says you get to fight for real money. first comes training and everything but you do get to fight.
02-27-2008, 10:21 PM
Phs/PS= prohormones/prosteroids which are just quasi legal steroids sold as supplements. I don't know what kind of gym can hold sanctioned fights though. From all appearances it sound like some underground fight. Since it isn't a 1st tier event or promotion you won't be drug tested so no real concerns there. But it doesn't appear you've fully reseached these substances so it would be best to just avoid them all together.

haha yeah^ you can say that again^
I dont think tito is on the GH. He stated in his recent training video for Machida that he only eats healthy food. which made me go WTF! Fighters cant just train without supps... no wonder this guy is always over training and has weak cardio.
What do you think Rodja?
05-10-2008, 01:32 PM
05-10-2008, 01:47 PM
oohh yes there is a huge difference. Watch his fight with frank Shamrock he was faster...had great cardio went all 5 rounds kind of gassed just at the final couple minutes/ It should be on Daily motion check it out.
EDIT: actually check this out..i think its better YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

Oh I didn't know that. But what I want to know is why do you think Randy is using GH? don't see any signs of him using it.
05-10-2008, 06:11 PM
He's a near fifty-year old man in impeccable condition, who made an improbable comeback in better shape than prior to his hiatus. At his age, with endogenous GHRH, and GH levels declining, and Testosterone:Cortisol:Estradio l levels becoming imbalanced for athletics, such a feat was most likely impossible without chemical aid.
