So what are the odds those vaping deaths last year were actually covid?


I'm not sure why this posted here, but ok. Seriously wonky forum software.

The original size on and superpump 250. Great combo asides from the toilet issues that came with superpump 250.🙄
I used to love Gaspari's Size-On tablets!!! I got a lot stronger when taking those.

Probably Creatine. First time I took Cell-Tech, finishing the tub, I saw big time gains. That hooked me onto supplements.

Honorable mentions-
PowerFULL
Primordial Performance’s peptopro protein powder, forgot the name

What is hbcd?
Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin - It's pretty much a carb source.
Yup, and it’s the GOAT of intra carbs - it is ridiculously expensive per gram, BUT it’s special: it requires no real digestion and basically just dumps right into the bloodstream. This is awesome AF for longer athletic competitions like powerlifting but especially strongman, where energy demands are high but the show may only be 4-5 hours and there is no time to digest meals in between events.

You can load up on a high fat breakfast like eggs and bacon that will steadily provide background stable energy all day (and frontload sodium) and then exclusively add in HBCD and things like glucose tabs directly around events. Between your stored glycogen from the day’s food prior and the immediately available carbs, you have blood sugar on tap when it’s needed with no worry about digestion motility being slowed due to the lifting. You eliminate that variable entirely.

Or someone on keto doing cyclic carb usage during intense training sessions, or people like me who just wake up and train first thing and don’t really have time to digest much of anything.

If you have time to digest a meal, just eat food. If you want more intra carbs, cheap dextrose will work great for most. But if digestion is a factor, and money isn’t an issue, nothing tops HBCD.

Talk about a blast from the past! Phosphagen HP was the first creatine product I ever used; my step-dad bought me a tub when I started lifting consistently in 2006. Used it until I saw a TV commercial for Xyience NOX-CG3; thought "Damn, this UFC fighter Forrest Griffin is a beast! I need some of that!" lol...

L-Lysine. I started taking it at the recommendation of my dental hygienist to prevent and stop canker sores. Repeat, canker sores not cold sores. Not only has it worked for canker sore prevention, I also have not had a cold or any other illness in the better than 2 years since I started taking it.

Do aas count as supplements? They usually fall under my definition of a supplement. Methylated trenbolone (metribolone)

Natty stuff beta alanine, citrulline malate, creatine, eca, adenosine monophosphate (inj)

Picked this up online . Will be mixing this with peak atp and a power crunch bar (300 calories) . So the protein bar plus the ketones preworkout for my energy source should be killer . Saw a fb ad for this so I said what the heck .

I think so. I'll bite my cheek while eating every so often. Pre lysine that would be guaranteed to turn into a canker sore or ulcer. Now if it happens, it heals overnight. I take it daily. Not just when I feel one coming on. I also haven't had so much as a cold since I started taking lysine. Been 2-3 years now.

Got some 1000mg l-lysine other day, im the same I've had sore after sore for last 20 years sometimes 3 at a time, this would be such a relief if it even just reduced them by half

Olive leaf extract is the best thing I've ever found for cold sores I take a daily maintenance dose and I double up when I feel one starting to form

The original arimadex at GNC that dissolved in your mouth.
I never hear people talking about that, and I've always wondered why.

That was an awesome product!

Well if we mean supplements like Flex Wheeler Did here
when Ronnie Coleman was retelling a story. I would say Testosterone

If we mean actual supplements its hard to narrow to one. I think without protein powder i would have one hell of a time dieting, ECA was always good but again not really a supplment
