    Well I've come to a point in my life I want to improve my muscle mass without the use of any crap that will ruin any internal organs ( aka I wont do power protien shakes at all or steriods).

    I'm pretty average kid around stomach chest legs, not overweight little under weight ( wish I had a pic )... but my arm muscle mass is REALLY REALLY low.

    Anyone have any ideas of the best method to boost this? Right now I'm lifting weights every day for about 20 minutes doing sit ups push ups and the weights.

    Any help would be great :)

    read the stickies. but bascially, lift heavy and eat alot.

    Oh, and there is absolutely nothing bad or dangerous about protein powder.

    power protein shakes = kidney and lung failure. steroids = heart and testicular cancer

    I've heard bad stories about some of the protein powders. Or maybe that is the energy drink powders.

    Anyways ok so eat and lift :)

    so does your kidneys and liver get messed up when you eat a can of tuna or chicken breast or a steak? Just read stuff and become informed.

    Dude, I am so with you on this. I tried drinking power protein shakes and for a while everything was going pretty great. After about 3 weeks of use I noticed that there was something wrong with my penis. So I went to the doctor and found out that I had protein-induced foreskin lesions. Fucking crazy shit man.. don't drink the protein shakes.

    wtf...i thought i was the only one.

    i was just always too embarassed to bring it up to my parents, but my school nurse checked it out and said "yep, its definitely the protein". something about imbalanced amino acid synthesis messing with testosterone gains that affected my genital disformity...

    ilyusha, where is your doctor located? Pm me with their #. i need some medical attention...:hsd:

    thanks. this is why i frickin love OT.

    from here, i learned how to take steroids safely while completely getting rid of my manboobs. my penis however, is turning into a clitoris. gosh, i hate this hormonal imbalance that protein put me on. i knew estrogen was really good for me, but i didnt think that too much of it would cause side effects.

    btw if you want some advice:

    1. try not to take protein. it has lots of side effects. surprisingly, large amounts of lettuce will help tone your body. listen to me, i said tone. i know you want that. right? tone. dont forget it.

    2. breathing technique is crucial. during the day if you focus on your breathing, making them deep breaths and full exhales, it actually helps you optimize the amount of calories burned when idle, while maximizing muscle growth.

    3. take progress pictures of your penis. if you find it shrinking over time, cut down on the protein. especially if you see small scabs like ilyusha and i are experiencing.

    good luck bro, i hope to hear good news in a few days.

    No. Dead serious. My doctor told me the same thing. I'm now on protein parole. They check my blood every week for traces of protein.

    I still get shaky when I walk by a GNC. I can't believe they let places like that stay in business.
