Question Of The Week

Taking Time Off From Supplements?

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that most bodybuilders take supplements regularly. This includes things like creatine, nitric oxide, testosterone boosters, etc. This week's question comes from board member 'Julian1988' and he asks which of us, and whether it is recommended, take breaks from supplementation.

Do You Take Time Off After Taking A Supplement?


I personally like taking time off - it gives the body time to relax and provides a renewed feeling of effectiveness once I return to the supplement. There are a lot of good responses and I think this is a very important topic, which is why I chose this thread for the question of the week.

Inspirational Thread Of The Week

Krzna: The Story In Pictures

Unless you just became a member of the message boards, I'm certain that everyone has heard of 'Krzna' in some form or another. He's helped out a lot of people in the past few years and has become a very well known representative of Anabolic Xtreme. To say the very least, he is one of the most contributive people on these boards!

Krzna's Transformation From Hefty To Skinny To Buff.

Now it's time for him to share his story with us. I'm not going to take the spotlight away from this thread, but he grew up as an overweight kid and made the transformation over several years. The pictures really do speak for themselves. Check it out - maybe this is just what you need to get back on track!

Recipe Of The Week


Every time I do the Best Of The Forums, my favorite threads to search for are the ones that contain recipes. I love to eat, and there is no better way to eat than healthy and tasty. This week, I have chosen a recipe for pancakes.

I was never really a huge pancake fan growing up as a kid, but I have grow to like a lot of things, especially when they're made with the bodybuilding touch. 'RoadPigJohn' gives us a recipe for some delicious, protein rich pancakes that takes only a few minutes to throw together.

Random Thread Of The Week

Ryan's Steakhouse

For starters, this is more of a funny story rather than a thread. Actually, this is a hilarious story, not just a funny one. It's a very random one with no connection to bodybuilding and/or fitness, although I guess you can be the judge of that. I really don't want to spoil the read for you, but I will say that it involves one man, specifically 'sallystrothers', and a very embarrassing event, one which I will not soon forget...

"...dealing with explosive diarrhea..."

Be prepared for the laugh of a lifetime. I'd like to thank 'Slated' for this one - you made my day! Just so you know, the story goes into great detail about the inner workings of men. Warning: this story is not for the squeamish - so don't say I didn't warn you!

Supplement Thread Of The Week

Which One (And Only One) Supplement Would You Take?

There are a crapload of supplements on the market today. Not only are they all different in their own special way, but there are dozens of very similar products that all claim to do one thing. This week's supplement thread is a question for everyone:

  • If you could take only one supplement, which one would it be?

I think it's a great question and it shows a lot about the person. There are a lot of great answers and everyone pleads their case very well. If you'd like to see how board members answered the question posed by 'Mr M5', just click here. This is a great thread to check out if you've only got money for one supplement and aren't sure which one to get.

Funniest Thread Of The Week

How Do You Use A Shaker Bottle?

You know, I have come across some pretty unintelligent people in my lifetime. These people usually are quite out of sync with the world around them and are generally clueless in terms of their everyday lives. Bodybuilding, as a lifestyle, takes a lot of brainpower and thinking to make the most of your hard work.

This week's funniest thread is from 'Mr. Cruz' who is having trouble with something. This something isn't a Nobel Prize theory, but it's something that probably everybody on the message boards uses. I'm not going to spoil what this something is, so you're going to have to check out this thread and see for yourself!
