    M-Drol Supplement Review
    M-Drol is the generic name for the anabolic steroid Superdrol, which is a synthetic illegal substance that will show up on numerous drug tests and also could have the potential to do major bodily harm to people who don’t use it properly. Superdrol is characterized by the nomenclature 2a,17a di methyl etiocholan 3-one, 17b-ol which also appears on the M-Drol label. M-Drol is a straight copy of the original Superdrol product from anabolic xtreme.

    Superdrol (also M-Drol) might sound like an easy way to gain fast muscle, but it is low quality muscle weight that you will lose. Many guys experience the effect of gaining 20lbs of muscle..Read More at androcycle.com

    Get Ripped With Muscle Builder Supplements

    Best Muscle Builders Supplements

     Before you pick a muscle builders supplements you want to have your diet and exercise plan ready to go. Without a proper diet and exercise plan you won't be able to grow, so make sure you follow a good one.  There are many free workout plans like this one available on the internet:   FREE WORKOUT PLAN

    When you choose a good diet and workout plan, then you can move on to proper muscle builders supplements for gaining mass.  There are many muscle builders supplements available on the market and you can get lost with what to choose. This should serve as a guideline for what kind of muscle builders supplements to choose.

     Creatine

     The most commonly used supplement that beginners start with is Creatine.  Creatine is one of the best muscle builders on the market because it can help a bodybuilder in three separate ways.  Creatine is one of the safest muscle builders supplements out there and has been studied since 1994 for safety.  Creatine builds mass by adding in an immediate water gaining or "volumization" effect to muscle. Also, creatine recharges ATP, which gives you more energy to perform. Finally, Creatine can block key enzymes that tear down muscle which will ultimately help you carry more mass.

     Amino Acids

     Amino Acids are the second part of our muscle builders supplements.  Amino Acids are not the same as straight protein from meat or even protein shakes.  Actually, a recent study has shown that ingesting and amino acid supplement before your workout will help you gain 33% more muscle each time you exercise.  The amino acid Leucine is the most important anabolic amino acid.  You need this amino acid in almost every supplement you take.  Our favorite stack that has creatine, leucine and other amino acids is found here and will give you all of the basic building blocks for muscle growth:   THE PERFECT STACK

     This stack is amazing because it gives you protein, creatine and amino acids for growth and is the best stack for the beginner who wants to put on tons of muscle while staying away from anything hormonal.

     The Next Step

     If you want to take your workout to the next level, you need to look at something stronger like an herbal testosterone booster or natural herbal androgen.  These two ingredients optimize the hormones of the natural athlete by increasing testosterone levels. 

     Testosterone boosting is going to help you increase aggression and muscle mass when in the gym.  You can boost testosterone naturally, using herbs and other supplements that boost your testosterone naturally.  Unlike steroids, these don't screw up your normal production of testosterone, they actually signal your body to make more testosterone.  The most popular testosterone booster on the market can be found here:   THE BEST TESTOSTERONE BOOSTER 

     If you want to go a step further, you can use natural herbal androgens. These ingredients are going to act like testosterone in your body and give you the natural boost in mass and strength that comes from steroid use, without being on anything that is a steroid.  You can be confident that these are not going to cause you to piss hot on a drug test. You can use these to give yourself a natural gain of 6-8lbs in a month.  A great natural steroid replacement and muscle builders supplements can be found here:   THE BEST STEROID REPLACEMENT 

     Steroids...legal and illegal

     Steroids are the holy grail of all sports supplements. They are still available on the internet, in gyms and in many countries they are not considered illegal.  Anabolic steroids are able to put on 10-12lbs of mass in one single month and can certainly be the best muscle builders for people wanting to get big.  People should be over 21 before they take any kind of steroids because these muscle builders supplements are not natural.  Also they can cause you to fail a drug test if you are an athlete or tested professional.

     Most steroids are illegal in the US, but there is one still legal steroid that you can take, which will help you boost your testosterone levels and give you massive gains in the gym.  This steroid is available without a prescription and can be a huge benefit for the experienced athlete looking for the best muscle builders supplements on the market.

     You can find these legal steroids HERE:

     Now that you have the basic muscle builders supplements, you can choose which one is right for you and start to put together your own program for putting on tons of mass.  Remember all muscle builders supplements are subject to proper diet and exercise and nothing will replace hard work, so you need both to succeed...

    Weight training after surgery.
    Hi guys, I have just had surgery 12 days ago. The surgeon says that I can start training, he say I can start light weights and cardio as of now and heavier weights in another 2 weeks. I feel really fine, I have done some push ups already and it feels good.

    What I REALLY need advice on, is my chest is concave in parts, its like my muscle has developed around where my breast was (i used to train my chest hard, so where it is developed it is quite pumped), but not underneath where the breast was. I literally have quite developed muscles at the top of my chest and at the sides, but there are round circles of no muscle. Also my nipples are about an inch lower than where they should be, or at least it looks that way.

    So I really need to work on the muscles at the lower part of my pec, and I need my pecs to grow quite a lot for my nipples to be in the right place.

    Can you guy help me write a workout regime for my chest that will really tacle these problem areas?



    Thank you!!

    Any of the guys here lose weight while transitioning? I am not on T, but I am looking to bulk up and lose weight. I am 330 now and have some time to really work on creating and changing habits. I used to be about 400 or so and spent a year about 2 years ago really working on losing it and was successful with a 1200 calorie diet and weight lifting, but I am looking to increase base cardio as well.

    Just looking for tips that may have worked for you guys.

    Thanks!

    To competative sporting types.... past present or future....
    Hey all you guys,

    I'm 25 and I've been on T for about 1 year and a bit. No surgery yet. I'm training as an amateur boxer for a while, but been training non-competitive boxing, martial arts and self-defense for years, but I have never trained competitively before, I never did it as a girl and now I'm starting as a boy, I'm totally stealth, and its all quite daunting, I feel really fat and weak compared to the guys there because they are all born male and been training since they were little kids, so I feel like I have to work so much harder to get the same results. I'm a middle-weight but most middle weights are much taller and bigger than me.

    I'm not fat, but when I was a girl I was kind of curvy, now I'm pretty muscular because I train REALLY REALLY hard, but still compared to those guys... I feel a bit fat. I weight 70kg and I'm 5'5"..

    Have you guys got any advice on how to compete with these guys? .... do you think we CAN compete with cis guys in sport?  or are we at a disadvantage?... have any of you competed against cis men and succeeded? have you got any positive stories to tell? ...advice on passing? ...encouraging words?.... training advice... diet advice.... loosing weight advice?...

    That would really be cool thanks.

    FTM and NCAA.
    {cross posted in ftmfit)

    Hi guys,

    It's been a lifetime since I've posted in this forum. So, hello to everyone and hi to old friends.

    To get to the point (and avoid wasting your time :]), I just had some questions about FTMs on college team. I currently run marathons and have been thinking about joining my community college's cross country team. The concept tears at my heart, although. I love running marathons. Most people don't understand just how much I love running them BUT, if I run on the cross country team then I can run under the guidance of an experienced coach. Running on the team also forces me to take more classes in college, which will ensure that I get through college sooner. I have to take 24 semester units, which means seven to eight classes. I'm fine with that, of course.

    The cross country team means lower mileage for me but it also means a lot of developmental and educational benefits. Beyond that, of course, comes the issue of being a trans-boy on the team. I've been on testosterone for over two years now and I don't know if they (meaning the NCAA) will sanction me to run because of doping regulations (I'm looking up the NCAA regulations as I type this). I've heard of stories of MTF's joining teams and that being a controversy simply because people believe a Male-To-Female trans has an advantage on the field.

    What do you guys think? I hope I was clear enough to get my question across or my point across. If not, feel free to ask whatever question you need me to answer. I feel so conflicted right now.

    NAVY SEAL WORKOUT

    I'm going to start a new workout plan next week. Its called the Navy Seal workout. It is a 9 week program. There are two sets of nine week workout. Every workout includes running, dips, pushups, situps, and swimming and pullups. Since I can't swim I'm going to replace that with weight lifting. Plus I dont think my gym has a pullup bar so I might have to replace those with something else. It says the workout will improve your endurance and strength. I am really excited to see what my body will look like after the first nine weeks. I want to see how far I can take my body before I go on T in the next year.  Just want to hear what others think of this workout plan. Do you think it is a good idea? And does anyone want to start doing it with me next week?

    Here is the link with the complete workout: http://www.teenbodybuilding.com/brent2.htm

    lose fat gain muscle... calories?
    Okay, so like pretty much everyone else, I want to lose fat and gain muscle. But what I've read tells me that to lose fat you have to have a calorie deficiency, and to gain muscle you have to have a calorie surplus. It seems that body builders eat a surplus of food to gain muscle, gain muscle, gain muscle... then, "cut" and seriously cut down on calories and increase cardio for a short period of time in order to cut the fat off of their bodies, to maximize the definition of their muscles.

    I just had my first shot of T last week, and I'm going to be starting to work out on a regular basis. I don't have a whole lot of fat to lose -- mainly the tummy/ovary fat. I'm wondering if, while I'm working out, I should be eating less - making that calorie deficit - or be eating more; this is all in question because I know the sudden flooding of my system with T can change things -- like the minimum body fat I can have, as well as how quickly I gain muscle and how much of it I can gain. It also seems that T can change metabolism and hunger. I haven't noticed any changes there yet.

    So, the basic question is: work out, eat more, gain muscle, and worry about cutting fat later? ...since being on T may take care of the fat anyway? Or, work out, maybe focus on cardio more, eat less (or just make a calorie deficit), and "cut" my fat now, then worry about gaining muscle after I lose the fat I have (probably 10-15lbs)?

    Advice is appreciated!

    newbie with a question
    I've worked at UPS for a year and a half. Currently I'm a loader, meaning I load tractor trailers. I've been loading since June, after a transfer from another facility. Before that, there was a monthlong hiatus, and before that I was on the sort aisle (sorting boxes of all sizes and weights as quickly as possible, so a good upper-body workout) for a few months. The boxes are all different weights and sizes, and there's a fair amount of climbing and speed is required for the job. So it's a decent workout and I've built up a good amount of muscle from it. I use creatine and L-glutamine supplements; I've used the former for a while now and the latter I just started. I just started using them before and after my shift (rather than just before); the creatine has helped with recovery and I think the glutamine is helping as well. Right now I'm still not as fast as the other guys (all bio-guys, as far as I know); I can max out at a little over 300 per hour, they can do 400 or more at their fastest. I'm pre-T and probably won't be able to get T by any legal means for a while, but I want to build more muscle, go faster, and so on. Aside from my job, I don't get much of a workout. I work 17.5-20 hours per week, if that's relevant.

    Is this possible, or is it likely that I've maxed out my pre-T abilities? I've experimented a little with DHEA combined with 6-OXO to minimize aromatization, I've used maca and tribulus, and there's probably something I'm forgetting. I can afford DHEA and maca (but it's been months since I've used either), but not the 6-OXO and I think the tribulus isn't going to work for me (it's supposed to increase luteinizing hormone levels, which is great for biomales but in pre-everything transguys...probably not so much). So...is there anything I'm forgetting or have totally missed?

    Hi guys.

    So this semester I'm taking a weight lifting class at my high school. My biggest goal is to mainly redistribute my fat around to get that boyish figure I've always dreamed of having. I really don't want to lose any weight because I'm tiny enough as it is (about 5'3" and 110 pounds). I'm still Pre-T and was wondering if any of you had any advice for me.

    Workout on myspace blog?
    Hey, I haven't worked out due to illness in a few weeks and now I can't get back onto the workout on your myspace blog. Do you have it posted somewhere else where I can access it, or can I friend you on myspace so I can see it. Good workout, I'd like to start it up again.
    Thanks,
    Jay
