    I've never really seen any studies that support the theory that they would help in muscle growth and such, seems like an easy way out. Like a magic pill sort of thing. :dunno: What do you guys think?

    Apparently you haven't read any studies.

    You mean, you never bothered to educate yourself before forming your opinion...

    Stuff like 'natural growth hormone,' shit that you see at GNC. I mean, I would think that if the supplement in question actually worked it would be advertised as having clinically tested etc.

    Creatine and protein is it.

    The suppliment industry is not regulated by the FDA, who knows what you are getting, they can say whatever they want in advertising and claims. Most studies done were performed by the company selling the product so draw your own conclusions.

    Oh ya, I wasnt reffering to ephedrine or creatine or even whey or fish oils. I watched TUF the other night and there wa this hilarious ad with chuck lidell promoting some 'xyience' supplements, and I checked some of it out and they have like 'fat burning mix' but its ephedrine free.

    :ugh:

    I would actually compare it more to reading a newspaper about politics before jumping to conclusions. :dunno: A guy like christophers could tell me more in a couple minutes than I could possibly learn over hours and hours of research. I'm sorry, but your analogy is terrible.

    assuming the black spots are motor neurons, look at how much more robust they are in B than A; also the fiber's area has increased considerably.

    gonna be a lot more power generated after the test en..

    well, there is some research in support of leucine (and its role in signaling the mTOR pathway)
