arrow Help Pick The Next MuscleMilk Flavor!

So as you may or may not know, CytoSport's Muscle Milk formula placed in the top 3 of two categories in this year's Supplement Awards and this is for good reason. Not only is Muscle Milk an excellent meal replacement protein formula, for the most part, their flavors taste like a milkshake that you would buy at Dairy Queen or Baskin Robins! I mean, this stuff is truly revolutionary in it's flavoring system.

Muscle Milk is an "evolutionary" muscle formula promoting efficient fat burning, lean muscle growth and fast recovery. Metabolically favorable ingredients stimulate growth and recovery in a similar manner to mother's milk nourishing a baby.

arrow Cloud Strife's BluePrint For Muscle Mass!

MAN (Metabolic Augmenting Nutrition) is a company that has a solid array of products. Many of them are at or near the top of their categories in terms of effectiveness and pricing. One of the newest products that MAN has released it called BluePrint and it is a product that contains a new compound called "Agmatine."

MAN Sports Products.

That being said, it was time to put this new product to the test. "Cloud Strife" was one of the few chosen to test and log this product. The thread can be found here. Great updates everyday, lots of detail in his workouts, as well as daily news on how he's feeling and how things are coming along. A great log to following along if you're looking to try BluePrint in the future. So far, according to his log, this products is looking to be very promising!

MAN Presents:

Blueprint features what may very well be The Holy Grail of Supplements: Agmatine. As a metabolic byproduct of Arginine, Agmatine goes beyond Arginine and works its wonders by stimulating the release of pituitary hormones such as Leutinizing Hormone (LH) and Growth Hormone (GH). Agmatine also demonstrates insulin like properties.

arrow Eating Disorder Support Group.

This next one is a good one. Lot's of activity and it's for a good reason. There are too many people that have eating problems and too many people that don't even know that they have eating problems until it's often too late. This thread is basically's support group for people with these eating problems.

People here have either gone through it, know someone who has gone through it, or are going through it themselves right now. It's a great place to go and talk to people about what's going on. The best way to deal with something like this is not alone. A lot of good work has been done in this thread and I think that everyone should at least read some of what's going on and be thankful that they don't have a problem with this. Thank you "fitforlife" for such a great thread.

arrow Vegetarian/Vegan Bodybuilders Q & A.

Meat is a big industry and is big in bodybuilding as well. Most bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts have no problem eating meat. Since this is such a great source of protein, what about all the people that are vegetarians or even vegans?! I always wondered how they manage to get enough protein to grow.

The Vegetarian Athlete!
With the increasing proof of the many benefits that can be obtained from this type of diet, it is not hard to see why athletes are opting for vegetarianism.
Kristi Lees

Luckily, there is a member by the name of "drjoe" who just so happens to be an exercise physiologist, chiropractor, 2007 NPC lightweight Masters Nationals Champion, AND is a strict Vegan! Crazy, huh? Yeah, I agree.

In any case, this is your chance to ask a Masters National Champion about eating like a vegan, protein intake, and anything else you may want to know. I've read through the thread and there a lot in interesting stuff in here that I had no idea about regarding vegetarians and vegans. In any case, check it out and see that building mass as a vegan isn't as hard as once though!
