OK guys, now you know I don't steer anyone wrong if you've been following JDB for any length of time. I always kick the real deal, and in fact I've come out numerous times and have voiced my opinion on most supplements. It's my opinion that most supplements are complete bullshit. Supplements are mostly powders or caps with some shit filler products and a “proprietary blend” of xyz from bumfuck labs Inc.
HOWEVER, there are a few products that do in fact work well. I've spoken briefly here and there on creatine, protein powder, and possibly a couple others along the way. Never have I mentioned any specific brands and my supplement talk has always been pretty brief and general.
Well, I have been recently using a few products that have given me EXTREMELY INSANE RESULTS…..QUICKLY!!
Let me first start off with how I got this product. I have a friend who has been talking about this product for a few months now. Every time the guy would tell me about this I'd just be thinking, “Yeah, yeah, yeah, blah blah blah.” I've been down the supplement road before and I've tried so many in the past with no results.
So anyways, this guy is a long time friend and a VERY LARGE individual. When I say large, I mean he is only about 5'6″ and a lean 230 lbs. If this guy says something he is using works, then I take his word for it. I don't have many friends, but the few I have are close and they've been in the gym 20+ years.
Anyways, he tells me that he is shipping out a container of this stuff for me to try. He says to me,”Just use it for a couple weeks and let me know what you think.” I thought it was fair enough, and he owed me a favor anyways so I figured we were squared away with this.
I immediately started researching reviews on MHP's “Myo-X” online, just to see what others thought about it. Well about 80-90% of everything I read was all solid. Of course you had some negative reviews which talked about the price of the product and how they had gotten nothing out of it. But what you have to remember is there are people who will get nothing out of anything they take, and you have to take what these types say with a grain of salt.
I trusted in my friend and I really just read reviews out of curiosity. I could read 1000 bad reviews on something, but if my friend tells me to try something then you can bet I'm going to take his review over 1000 other bad ones. And you can bet if I tell you guys something, it's because it works.
So allow me to explain to you just how effective this supplement has been for me
I began using this product while dieting. I had switched to a Paleo style diet about 3-4 weeks ago, and my carbs have been much lower. I was 223 lbs when I started using Myo-X. I was told to take 2 scoops a day. He had told me that 2 scoops is when he really started seeing the rapid results, so I took my buddy's word for it and used 2 scoops a day myself.
The first day of using this product I did a set of incline dumbbell presses using 90's for a set of 25 reps. I train HIT style with high frequency and lower volume, so it's not uncommon for me to hit a muscle group 2-3 times a week when I'm doing this. 3 days later I did my chest again, same exercise and same order of exercises. I had gone to 100 lb dumbbells and I had completed the same rep count of 25 reps!! A 10 lb. jump in dumbbells means 20 lbs more per rep x 25 reps. I had increased the total work output in that one set by 500 lbs in a matter of 3 days!!
3 days later I went back and did this with 105 lb dumbbells, and today I had completed 25 reps with 110 lb dumbbells (sort of, I got to 22 reps, then rest paused for 10 seconds and hit out another 3 reps for a total of 25 reps). What does this mean? This means that within 2 weeks I had increased my total work output on ONE SINGLE SET BY 1,000 lbs!!! That my friends was performed ON A DIET THAT HAS BEEN UNDER 2,000 CALORIES A DAY MOST DAYS, with very little carbs!!! And that friends, is no fucking placebo effect…..no way, no how!! Not a gain like that.
My deadlift last time I trained my back was 550 lbs/8 reps off the floor, a feat I have never in my life performed while dieting and usually getting weaker. I swear on my own life that what I'm telling you guys is true. I swear on my wife and sons life this is true. This Myo-X stuff has been so damn effective that I'd put it before gear, and that is no bullshit. After 2 weeks of using this I am still at my starting weight of 223 lbs, but much leaner and much stronger. Leaner at the same weight=gain in my book!!
Am I natural? No I am not. But I use very little and I've only been using 400mg/wk NPP along with 200mg/wk test for the past 8 or 9 weeks now (well, always on 200mg/wk test per hormone replacement dose). So I was taking NPP for awhile before trying this supplement out. NOTHING NEW was added during the time I started taking this stuff. MHP's Myo-X has worked better for me than any supplement I've ever taken in my life. I'm about to order up a few more jugs of the stuff in a couple days here. I will definitely be staying on this one a long time.
Products to run with Myo-X
A couple other products my friend recommended I run while using Myo-X are “Amino Decanate” by Muscle Meds, and Muscle Pharm's glutamine powder. I take the Amino Decanate at 1 serving post workout, and the glutamine powder during the workout. Branched chain amino acids are the building blocks of protein. It only makes sense to add more building blocks during a time of myostatin reduction, which is what Myo-X does.
Myostatin is a protein that gets in the way of our progress and ultimately limits our growth potential. Take that away and you give yourself free range. Myo-X has been shown to reduce myostatin levels by 46% in 100% of test subjects!! It's clinically proven and I'm here to tell you it's no bullshit because I know what it's done for me so far.
So I've taken my friends advice and just started using Amino Decanate and glutamine. Gutamine aids in recovery by strengthening your immune system, which is torn down after intense weight training. Glutamine also helps your brain and allows you to think more clearly while in recovery mode from training. What we want here is a synergy between all 3 of these products.
The Myo-X opens the flood gates for more potential growth, the BCAA's give us more building blocks to use to that potential, and glutamine enhances recovery and helps cognitive function from rapid increases in work weights and stress on our body. Think of these 3 as a new turbo charged engine, upgraded transmission, and racing fuel.
Now, let me just break this regimen down for you guys one more time here. You will take the Myo-X at 2 scoops per day, one scoop 12 hours BEFORE you train, the other scoop 12 hours later. Or for most, this would just be morning and night dosing.
-1 serving of Amino Decanate during the workout, followed by 1 serving of Glutamine post workout.
Some of you guys were asking for more supplement reviews so there you go. I don't like just reviewing things for the hell of it, I only want to share what has worked for me. Nobody needs to waste money on false hope here. Groceries are expensive enough. But if you're seriously looking for an edge, give this a run for a few months.
Over and out!!
