Question Of The Week

List Your Top 3 Favorite Supplement Companies!

Everyone has their favorite supplements that they couldn't live without. We compiled a list of those supplements a couple issues back. But what about supplement companies themselves? Does everyone have a favorite company?

I'm not talking about liking a company, but loving a company so much that you'll buy anything that they release, even if you know it's going to be absolute crap...

I think everyone has a couple companies whose products they are extremely fond of. I, personally, am a die-hard Designer Supplements, SciVation, and Ergopharm fan.

If you could choose 3 companies to name as your favorites, which ones would they be? Take a look at other people's responses to this question in the thread started by 'strongpointe85'.

Supplement Thread Of The Week

Which Has Given You Better Results?

For this week's supplement thread, I have selected a comparison between 2 very popular creatines: Designer Supplements Xceed and Controlled Labs Green Bulge.

Both have received phenomenal reviews and both have excellent proprietary blend profiles. If you're looking to get a new creatine and have been eyeing either of these 2 products, then this thread may be able to help you make an educated choice.

Workout Log Of The Week

Let It Be Written...

Picking the Workout Log Of The Week is probably the most interesting thread to pick. I get to learn about the lives of so many people and see how they eat and train everyday. It's also the most difficult thread to pick, simply because there are so many training journals that are just so good.

Isolating one journal is a difficult task and it's usually not a big factor that makes one journal better than another every week, I have to pick a journal that stood out, and this week, this one by 'ANiMaliZtIk' did just that.

His journal is really excellent - updated very often and chock full of detail. There are pictures as well, for comparison, and the gym stats are detailed as well. Check out his journal and see how he's changed his life with bodybuilding.

Picture Thread Of The Week

Polish Muscle, 18 Years Old

This week's picture thread if a bit different from any in the past. Usually, I find a thread with pictures from different people of the same body part, such as the biceps. Sometimes, I'll find funny threads with pictures of something weird or abnormal.

"You look like a young Mariusz Pudzianowski..."

This week, however, I have chosen to showcase a young man from Poland. He's 18 years old and has an incredible base for such a young age. 'Polak' has been training for 3 years and has gotten gained some considerable size.

These pictures can be inspirational to all of those young teen guys out there. You don't need steroids or prohormones to get the body you want.

With hard work, dedication, persistence, and patience, you will get to where you want to be. Just stick to it and the results will come!
