Supplement Log Of The Week

50 Day X-Factor Cycle - Photos

Some of the best supplement logs that I have come across often lack a very important aspect - pictures. Sure, saying that you put on 15 pounds and your bench has gone up 30 pounds is possible, but the one thing that doesn't lie is a photo. This week's supplement log is from 'yodoso', who has compiled a fantastic 50-day log of supplementation with Molecular Nutrition X-Factor.

It's easy to keep track of his gains, not only because the log itself is detailed, but because he is including weekly pics. This is a great way for any subscribers or those interested in the product to actually see how the particular product has changed the user's appearance. So, if you're looking to start your own log, this is a fantastic template for you to follow.


Supplement Thread Of The Week

Anabolic Xtreme Hyperdrol FAQ

For those of you that have been on the boards for a few months or more, you would most likely have heard by now about a new product called Hyperdrol from Anabolic Xtreme. This product has been in the works for quite some time and has gotten a lot of attention, both good and bad, from a lot of people.

I've seen threads dedicated to being the first to buy the product as well as the record-breaking Hyperdrol Lottery, in which people posted to get a chance to win. Anabolic Xtreme has released some very impressive products, some of which are no longer available.

People are hoping that this product will be effective while not producing unwanted side effects like those that came with some of their other products. This week's supplement thread is the FAQ for this long-awaited product. There is some excellent information if you're looking to try it out. Check it out and see what the Hype is all about! Thanks to 'Scheizekopf' for this one.


Argument Thread Of The Week

CL Controversy

Lately there has been a lot of smack talk going on towards certain companies. More often than not, these are just haters who happen to dislike a company for any particular reason. There is even speculation that company representatives create other screen names just to bash other companies.

This has been happening more now than ever, and it's starting to get on a lot of peoples' nerves. This relates back to some threads asking people if reps should even be allowed on the boards. It seems that there is just so much bashing going on and it's really getting out of hand.

This is really all just so childish and useless. I will not be the judge in this court. Instead, I will simply point you to this thread and let you decide the verdict. Thanks, 'beau_zo_brehm', for this controversial one.


Poll Of The Week

Quick Price Survey

In the world of bodybuilding, more specifically supplement marketing, it is very important for supplement manufacturers to understand the wants and needs of the consumer base. That being said, price is a very important aspect in understanding consumers. Obviously the consumer wants the best product for the least amount of money. In most cases, this just isn't possible.

Quantity Vs. Quality?

For this week's poll, I have chosen a poll by 'TheOMEGA' on this particular topic. Given the option of price per quantity, would you prefer the lower price, lower quantity option or the higher price, higher quantity option? Maybe it doesn't matter to you, as long as it's the best product? In any case, check out this thread and let others (especially supplement companies) know how you feel about price and quantity.

Motivational Thread Of The Week

Sh!t's Pathetic To Me...

Sometimes eating like a champ is hard. Sometimes eating like a champ is near impossible. Depending on what you do for a living, living a healthy lifestyle can seem more and more like a chore than something you should enjoy doing.

Sure, it's great to indulge every once in awhile. In fact, it's actually recommended to enjoy what you want every so often. However, a change in your life can create an even greater effect in your lifestyle.

From living healthy to munching on junk food all day long, it's a hard life to live but it's worth it. This week's motivational thread was started by 'Sin`cere'. He was close to reaching his goal when a change in career catapulted him in the wrong direction.
