Vascularity in bodybuilding is controversial. The term refers to the extent of superficial prominence of blood vessels, or veins, that are just below the skin’s surface. Of course, you don’t have to be a bodybuilder to show prominent vascularity. You can readily see a lot of veins on many thin people.

Selegiline (chemical name: L-Deprenyl, Brandnames: Eldepryl , Jumex, Zelapar, or veterinairy Anipryl

I believe nootropics like by example Selegiline Cabergoline and Bromocriptine are very underrated bodybuilding drugs.

The enzyme monoamine oxidase has two main forms, type A and type B. They are coded by separate genes. MAO may be inhibited with agents that act reversibly or irreversibly; and selectively or unselectively. These categories are not absolute.

MAO type-A preferentially deaminates serotonin and noradrenaline, and also non-selectively dopamine. Type B metabolises dopamine, phenylethylamine (the chocolate amphetamine) and various trace amines.

Scientists and writers for health websites now have hundreds of common and exotic foods proclaimed 'superfood', but let's for a moment at the seven above. They make clear why we have difficulty with the superfood hype. Positively to the superfood trend or superfood hype, is that they make people aware again of the value of everyday, raw and unprocessed foods. That, and not all kinds of industrial products or supplements, are the foundation of a healthy diet that you as an athlete can make progress on.

What I want you to see is that no matter of all the information in books, magazines, the discussion boards and the internet, almost all newbie bodybuilders and lifters become victims of the supplement industry. Companies like the Weiders scam millions of people and make billions of dollars a year by making innocent people in believing that their heavily advertised products can produce quality muscle and make unwanted fat disappear.

Companies like Weider, etc selling supplements, that in fact will make no difference to your appearance at all. I’m not talking about tainted food supplements or the pro-hormones. Just watch the documentary “BIGGER STRONGER FASTER”

Clenbuterol has been used for years for its ability to shed body fat and preserve lean muscle mass. Although this is highly debated, clenbuterol has been thought to have mild anabolic properties, which is believed to be the reason for the preservation of muscle mass when dieting. Bodybuilders have used clenbuterol as a diet drug for over three decades, and until the last 10 years or so, most of the clenbuterol came from Mexico and Europe.

Gluthatione TAD 600

I was in Greece for a few days and spoke with a trainer, he told me TAD was used by many pro's to protect their liver and kidneys, improve the immune system and improve skin texture (androgenic compounds are very harsh on the skin as most will know) It also helps 

protect the hair (androgenic compounds and hair loss same story). It was a nice discussion. Most bodybuilders want to discuss topics about muscle grow, training, steroids and anti-estrogens, but taking injectable vitamin B12, Silymarin, Ketotifen, TAD, Selegiline etc is a bit unusual.

But how much we hate it, we will get older... a Muay Thai fighter once told me in the sauna, it doesn't matter if you smoke a package of cigarettes and drink a crate of beer every day when your 18, you'll have to pay your dues after your 40st year, when you are getting older. The same is true for many things that can wreck your body. Your body is your temple, and you never can get a new one. Regrets are a useless emotion. You should protect your body now!!

While most people just stick by using traditional cycles and compounds, competing athletes are trying new products. Of course the compounds that are being used change from country to country and depend on which nutritionist is advising you.

In the past I have posted some blogposts on topicals and this time I would like to examine an old French product called : Percutacrine Thyroxinique it was made by Laboratoires BESINS INTERNATIONAL and contains 10 ampoules of 2 ml with a percutaneous solution.

It was indicated for the symptomatic treatment of subcutaneous adipose tissue. Composition of the cutaneous solution. Dextrothyroxine sodium: 4 MG / 2ML


This French laboratory also markets other products for percutaneous absorption Percutacrine Androgenique (Andro Gel) and Progestogel and many others.

They are two big American brothers, Peter and David Paul called “The Barbarian Brothers” - Big, strong guys completely mad and full of steroids and being the first bodybuilders to workout wearing construction boots, tied on bandanas and torn tank tops or flannel shirts both inside and outside the gym.

Nowadays their haircuts, clothing, feather earrings and other jewelry, looks somewhat ridiculous and outdated, but in those years they were tough and trendsetting. But the real trend the Barbarians popularized was not one of trendy clothing or social posturing, but one of lifestyle and attitude.

When in the early eighties of the last century it became known that recombinant HGH would become available on the market, the expectations of athletes were high. Dan Duchaine had in his book Underground Steroids written an attractive description of the progress that could be achieved with recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH). No steroids were able to match that. This was also pretty much the general belief. Understandably, the release of the biosynthetic form of this hormone was eagerly awaited.

Ok, human growth hormone was already circulating on the [black] market, but that was hGH from the pituitary glands of deceased donors, also called cadaveric hGH. Now the real, identical biosynthetic growth hormone would be made available. Although the donor hGH is also identical, it has to be of course, but from the new recombinant product was expected a lot more.

Most bodybuilders want a pair of impressive traps. Traps is short for trapezius. Most bodybuilders believe that the traps are the muscle groups only seen from the front, like on this picture. But the fibers of the trapezius run in three different orientations and, therefore, can be divided into three sections: upper, middle and lower part. Bodybuilder, also the recreational want impressive traps. Powerlifters and weightlifters are just concerned in functional traps, they want traps that generate enough power to lift impressive weights.

"Killer Traps," along with a broad chest and big biceps, are one of the major signs that "that guy must work out."

If you trapezius is a lagging muscle groups, you are lucky cause you might or might not know, that muscle-groups react differently to anabolic androgenic steroids, and the trapezius grows more than most muscle groups.

That is a positive thing, but can also be bad, since the trapezius muscles are also involved in our posture and can cause back pains and neck pains.

First let me explain about the difference in adaption to training and steroids. A lot of what we learn from this study is already known by us iron addicts. Still it is very interesting to read Anders Erikssons dissertation from the Umeå University: “Strength Training and Anabolic Steroids: A comparative study of the vastus lateralis, a thigh muscle and the trapezius, a shoulder muscle, of strength-trained athletes”.
