Health & Wellness

Nowadays it seems like everyone and their brother is starting some sort of health & fitness lifestyle. For many people that is weight loss, but for many, it’s all about the gains. Unfortunately, when it comes to both weight loss and weight gain, the market is saturated with equipment, programs, and supplements all of which promise miracles. What most people don’t realize is that you don’t always need a fancy protein powder or exercise program sold by your favorite influencer. 

If you’ve been gaining unwanted weight and can’t pinpoint why, the answer could be as simple as being stressed. Dealing with acute stress, episodic acute stress, physical stress, and chronic stress have all been linked to weight gain, especially in the abdominal area, and what might look like a small gain per week really adds up throughout the year. Reducing your stress is key to staving off those unwanted pounds, and we’ll explain why stress makes you gain weight. 
Low libido, or low sex drive, is when someone experiences a decreased interest in sex and sexual activity. Low libido affects many men, and it can have devastating effects on one’s love life and self-image. Imagine having your hand on JLO’s ass and still not being interested. That can really be a bummer. There are many causes of low libido, but luckily there is treatment. It is normal to experience periods of low libido over time, but when it is a long-term problem, looking deeper into the cause is recommended. 

Testosterone is the primary male sexual hormone and has a large impact on the building of muscle tissue, bone density, and strength. In the bodybuilding world, testosterone is often used as an anabolic androgenic steroid and is often the main feature of a steroid cycle, particularly cycles which allow for injectables. There are a few ways testosterone is made and different compounds it is incorporated in. However, we will focus on Testosterone Base.

  1. I will not let my mind hold me back.

Your mind is the thing that places limitations on your body. If you can break through the controls of your mind, you can unlock a whole new level of performance.

  1. I am going to feel amazing after this workout.

Who ever regrets a workout after they’re finished? Chances are, if you push through this workout, you’ll feel better than when you started. Anything is better than nothing.

  1. I trust myself because I follow through with commitments.

You do follow through with commitments! Your commitment to your body, your health, your wellbeing. You take care of yourself by exercising and giving your body nutrients. You are healthy.


Women with higher levels of vitamin D3 have been shown to experience more intense orgasms and enjoy sex more than women who are low in vitamin D3. But what about the guys? Is there anything we can ingest that will give us better orgasms? Well, we see lists all over the internet with a bunch of food that no one has heard of, that if you eat, then in about 2-4 weeks you will see a slight improvement. But not all of us want to incorporate some weird sounding supplements. Some of us want to eat regular food that we can find easily at the store.

The prevalence of erectile and sexual dysfunction affects approximately 2% of men under age 40, around 53% of men aged 40-70 years, and more than 85% of men over age 80.

According to a new study, that food, or rather foods, which can help you experience more intense orgasms are as simple as heading to your local grocer – and picking up some walnuts, hazelnuts, and almonds.

I get many questions about infections or even abcesses. Mostly people blame the Underground Lab, posting the product was not sterile etc. In reality its better first to check on Google if you can find more cases of infection. Because a batch is in most cases much bigger than 1 vial. Most UG labs manufactur a kilo of API  (raw powder). A batch of 250 mg/ml wil therefore be around 400 pcs.

The culprit in most cases is a lack of knowledge. I’ve seen many times that bodybuilders injected each other or themselves. They clean the injectionspot with alcohol (betadine is much and much better) and immidiatly pierce the skin. After the injection they pull up their pants and boxer. They mostly forget that they have created an open wound, a small one but bacteria are small too.

Once you have desinfected the skin you should wait some time to allow the bacteria to die, before you pierce the skin.

You should also desinfect the top of the vial you keep in the basement or fridge. And use clean needles and syringes. Wash your hands carefully also.

Here you can read how an extremely knowledgeble competing bodybuilder managed to contaminate his vial. When I showed him the analytical reports he realised how lucky he had been for quite some time. He was injecting so much for such a long time that he had become careless about sterility.



You will notice in an infection (usually) within 3 days and it will be red, sensitive to the touch and will seem to spread. Irritiation for the for first days will be very much the same so it can be stressful during that time to determine what is what.

First off its always a good idea to have some antibiotics handy just in case. Even with pharmaceutical gear from compounding pharmacies you can still get infections from a various amount of reasons. You mentioned injecting in the tricep. Thats a great area to site inject but can be tricky. you need to make sure you flex the tricep fully and find the peak. Watch it carefully as you relax the arm (should be bent 90 degrees not straight) and inject in the center of the meaty portion of the peak. It is very easy to be off center or to hit the outside head where there is not much space and the subsequent expansion of the muscle accompanied with the 2 propionate esters in sustanon to cause some pretty uncomfortable irritation. If the site has not been swabbed with alcohol and a frest needle used that can place bacteria in the injection site.

 Luckily "gyno", or in this case lipomastia, does not always look that bad. Oftentimes it is more subtle, yet still annoying a psychological burden for men suffering from it. This pictures alone should be reason enough to give all the 45+ contributing mentioned in this article a wide, wide berth

If you type "gynecomastia" into your favorite search engine, your chances to find one of the major fitness and bodybuilding forums among your first hits are about 99%. This indicates that gynecomastia, lipomastia, "bitch tits", "fat tits" and whatever else many people use to measure by the same yardstick is much more prevalent than you would think if you conducted a survey on the street. The reasons for that are manifold. Men, who frequent those bulletin boards are oftentimes more conscious about their looks than Mr. Average, they are also more prone to be exposed to exogenous hormonal agents that can contribute to the development of the aforementioned unaesthetic pathologies. Most importantly, though, gynecomastia is something you don't talk about. You have it, you suffer, but you don't talk publicly about it - after all, that would just make you even more unmanly! Right? No, false! Utterly false!

In fact, the widespread implicit understanding that the above statement was right is a damn good reason for me to do the opposite and talk, or rather write about causes  and ways to get rid of this humiliating condition .

A Few Case Reports

A 37 year old professional athlete arrived in my office complaining of low testosterone symptoms of low libido, erectile dysfunction, chronic fatigue, and mood disorder.  He admitted to anabolic steroid abuse in the past, and now sought medical intervention to "restore his testosterone to normal."   A few years ago, he had married and fathered a child, and he now wanted to devote more time to his family, but complained of a lack of energy to do so.  He also wanted to preserve fertility, as he wanted more children.  Previous medical doctor's lab studies showed low testosterone levels, all below 300 ng/dl, and low FSH and LH levels as well

After our usual workup, and the obvious diagnosis of hyopogonadal hypogonadism, treatment was started with HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin), an LH analog which stimulates testicular testosterone production.  The patient wished to retain fertility which contra-indicated the use of Testosterone preparations.

I'll post here an old article (2009) from "The New York Times"

After this article adding the studies mentioned. Don't know about you, but I find it damned interesting.

Many competitive bodybuilders take anabolic steroids to achieve their freakishly exaggerated physiques. That is no secret. But steroids can be only one part of an extreme regimen that can wreak havoc on the body.
Human growth hormone, supplements, painkillers and diuretics can also be used to create the “shrink-wrapped” muscles so prized in the aesthetic. And the high concentration of muscle mass puts stress on the body, as if the lifter were obese.

Lifting weights in the gym is “extremely healthy for you,” said Kenneth Wheeler, a former elite bodybuilder known as Flex. “But if you want to be a bodybuilder and compete at the highest level, it has nothing to do with health.” A relatively rare form of kidney disease forced Wheeler to retire in 2003 at age 37, and he needed a kidney transplant later that year.
