Sorry for the flood of threads on supplements. Anyone taken Myostatin inhibitors and seen benefits from it, or is that horse cakes also? :violent5:

Also, while it's entirely possible to get enough protein without supplements, powders help because liquids digest more quickly than solids. Consuming protein prior to a workout is more effective than following a workout, where it's better to eat more carbs to fuel the processes for rebuilding muscle. You can eat meat like 2 hours before or you can have a protein shake only an hour before, which is easier to plan around.
However, I will agree that hype and ignorance of supplementation can hit the wallet harder than a Kevin Butler field goal kick. I take supplements for antioxidants and heart health (green tea extract and fish oil) in addition to a healthy diet because I'm at a much higher risk for these than most people, but that doesn't hold true for the general population.
However, I'm waiting to hear back from a doc if I should be more worried about mercury issues from fish or from the capsules.
As for myostatin, I can't say that I've ever had it. I don't go much further than what I've already mentioned.

Blow me, No2 has worked, aswell as creatine for me. If you haven't taken it or know anything about Myostatin inhibitors, then STFU. :thebirdma:

I swear by No2, that stuff has done alot. In 3 months, my overall maxes have gone up alot, as well as my endurance. Myostatin is supposed to be a growth and muscular inhibiting enzyme. That's all I know about it pretty much.

I know someone else who used NO2 with success. Until I have a routine that I can consider to be optimal, I'm going to work on fundamentals before spending whatever it is on performance-boosters.
The only thing I'd say is if you were training for a competition or whatever, you might be DQing yourself from a drug test with this stuff. But if that's not the case, then stay safe and keep going.
btw, I can't believe you edited your STFU to be even MORE obvious and flagrant. :(

Found an answer. Looks like I'll be saving some money. Yeah No2 worked greatly for me.
Myostatin is a protein produced in the body that may inhibit skeletal muscle growth by binding to the activin IIb receptor. Researchers from the Department of Kineseology at Texas Christian University investigated the effect of resistance training on myostatin expression as well as its effects on muscle strength, mass, and body composition in 22 untrained males. This was the first study to examine the effects of heavy training on myostatin expression. After 12 weeks of heavy lower-body training, subjects increased total body mass, fat-free mass, strength, thigh volume, and thigh mass. Interestingly, the subjects also had an increase in myostatin protein. However, the researchers concluded that even though there was an increase in myostatin levels, this increase had no effects on training-induced gains in mass and strength. This is likely because of a simultaneous increase in something called follistatin-like related gene (FLRG) protein, which inhibits myostatin from binding to the activin IIb receptor, as well as a down-regulation of activin IIb receptors. The implications of this research are far-reaching and may be one reason why myostatin-blocker type supplements are unnecessary for those looking for quality gains in muscle.

Well, rather than be harassed I responded that way. This is bullshido, isn't it?

Hey, I'm not criticizing attitude or anything. I just can't believe you improved the aesthetics of your verbal message. :)

Stop with the supplements, they'll only wittle down the size of your wallet. If you want to get big and strong, weight train harder and eat a good diet. Ever think that your overall strength went up in 3 months because you worked out a little harder because your magic powder motivated you to do so? Oh well, keep donating to the snake-oil salesmen if you want. It's your money, not mine.
