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.
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 400 mg/wk NPP along with 200 mg/wk test for the past 8 or 9 weeks now (well, always on 200 mg/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
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!
You can buy Myo-X, Muscle Pharm Glutamine and Amino Decanate on Amazon.

John when you say something is good I’m sure it is. I might just skip the trial phase and just buy 2 or 3 of these jugs because I trust you so much.
Sweet, I’m going to order some, will report back on how it looks, normally I don’t trust supplement reviews but I trust you on this one man.
I picked up your book, some great stuff in there too, will def add the light beer to my next cut.
I’m skeptical of this supplement, but I have ordered some and figure it’s worth $50.00 to find out myself. I’m just surprised I have not heard about it from any of my friends or on the boards I read.
Do you think its only usefull for veterans like you that are at their maximum (and above) genetics potential or also good for 1.5 years into training like me? I also trust you if you say its good shit. Even before gear? Wow
I think it’s useful for anybody if they have their training and food intake right
I trust your input.
Very interesting, John. I’ll order some for my next bulk.
What happens after you stop taking the supplement? Do the gains stay or fade?
I’m not sure, because I haven’t stopped yet, but my friend told me that he kept everything. That makes a lot of sense to me because true myostatin reduction would give you keepable gains, you shouldn’t yo-yo around like a hormone would do
damn, if its true thats the holy grail. too bad its 60 bucks for 15 days
Can you clarify when you take the decanate and glutamine? Also if I’m working out early in the am before work should I just do 2 scoops of myo-x the night before? PS I really enjoyed the book
Yea, just take it about 12 hrs before you train, so later in the evening the night before is good. And yea man, just get 2 scoops in you. I was doing 1 scoop in the am and one in the pm, but either way just take 2 scoops
Is it possible that this product is actually helping to thwart myostatin??
Also, Help in creating Hyper-Plasia??
Did 1 month scoop of creatine + scoop of Myo-X test without any excercise at all (6 months before or during the test). 2 inches away from waist line, firmer muscless, removed back pain and increased bicep size.
A must product for any nerds!
why would you take that and not workout
Mhp actually is a good company..you should consider a paperback of your book on amazon for us old school guys who still love our books.
I’m strongly considering that
Do you take it on non workout days as well , or just on training days?
I take it everyday
maybe 2 scoops on training days and 1 scoop on non-training days… to make it last longer. Just bought a bottle, can wait to try it.
This stuff sounds very promising. When I get some spare cash, I might have to give it a shot.
Question from natty (still): What’s up with saturated fats and testosterone levels? Do you believe, if someone is not juicing, that high intake of saturated fats can raise his testosterone levels?
It’s not solely fat intake as it is cholesterol too. Both play a role in natural test production. I wouldn’t go loading up on things with saturated fats, but you do need some. Things like lean beef and egg yolks are good sources
BTW didn’t you consider starting serious instagram profile like Victor Pride does? After all, it could be a great motivation for us, your readers.
How about myostatin inhibitors peptides? What’s your thought about those?
I just presume anything injectable means less waste down the gut
I’ve never tried them. I can’t say much about them, but I know this much; real follistatin isn’t going to sell for only $100 a vial like some companies sell it for. This stuff is upwards of several thousand dollars and only available from a lab. I just don’t know enough science behind the myostatin inhibitor peptides to make an accurate suggestion on them at this time
Just picked up a bottle of the stuff gonna give it a shot.can you take this with creatine also?
Have your lifts improve more since that?
Ya know it took me a long time to get myself to stop buying supplements because i thought i was gonna lose muscle etc. The fear of not supplementing scared the shit out of me. But ive actually made better gains without any supplements and just taking in real food and saved a lot of money in the process. Ill pass as i suffer from supplement addiction :-) like any other addiction you gotta go cold turkey.
alright guys, that shit is awesome.
I was going to wait till I finished the jug to write this but I’ll say it right now.
I’ve been on this for a week, 2 scoops on training days (12-16 hours before gym and another after) and only one scoop on non training days.
with less food and less sleep I am able to add more weight and rep to every lifts. very good stuff. and it taste so good, you don have to mix it with anything, I eat it raw from the scoop, very good taste. very good result. just a little bit expensive, but thats because its good quality.
You put it above gear, what about while on gear? Synergistic effect with the increase in anabolic response and recovery while lowering myostatin?
Yes, of course I think it’d benefit while on gear. The downfall to this stuff is the price, therefore I recommend hitting 2 jugs worth of it for a month, followed by a month or two off, then back on again. If money isn’t an issue then you could stay on it. Many people will say it doesn’t work, but those same people wouldn’t get results from anything, because they aren’t disciplined enough to begin with
John, I just left from a cutting, looking forward to grow now.
Do you think it is better I do 3-4 weeks only eating clean to grow and then use Myo-X or should I use Myo-X since the beginning from this bulking?
I always live by the rule of eating at least 80% clean at any given time, 95% when I’m cutting. You need calories, and figure your first few weeks are just bringing you back to your set-point of where before you began cutting, so you may not really pick up bodyfat despite even eating “dirtier.” I take this sort of thing day to day, if I feel like I need something heavier then I may have a bagel for breakfast, or a Rotisserie chicken for dinner (skin and all)
Hey JD, You did not answer my last comment – I just would like your input –
Is it possible that this product is actually helping to thwart myostatin??
Also, Help in creating Hyper-Plasia??
One thing I have noticed about certain sites is that, even though they have tons of content, the site looks great and the headlines are eye catching is that the material is simply filler. It’s downright unreadable. You can forget it 6 seconds after you read it. Not the case with your post though, really enjoyed it reading it and it held my attention all the way through! Keep it up.
I know you mentioned the strength gains, but as far as size gains how much did you get while on this?
I can’t remember as this article was written a long time ago. Plus, I was on a decent stack at the time so it’s tough to gauge accurately but I do remember achieving good results while using that supplement and I’m not a big supplement guru. Thanks for following JDB! -JD
