AH-89 Similar to Stanozolol and Legal

May 26, 2009

AH-89 is mildly anabolic but has great androgenic effects.   AH-89 is milder on the liver than Stanozolol because it is NOT 17-alpha alkylated.  The addition of tetrahydropyranyl ether to the compound’s structure is a useful protecting group for the stabilization of the compound and makes it longer acting.

AH-89 does NOT convert into estrogen so there is no major bloating or water retention issues.  Therefore there should be no need for an anti-estrogen to follow AH-89 use.   AH-89 has minimal progesterone conversion  activity.  AH-89’s cousin Stanozolol is related to progesterone but blocks the receptors for progesterone.  AH-89 sounds like the perfect compound to stack with Tren since Tren is also a progestin and a minimal  amount may convert to progesterone.  AH-89 is a good stacking agent because Tren may intensify some estrogen conversion from any pro-hormones that can potentially do that.

AH-89’s cousin Stanozolol has similar anabolic properties to Dianabol but without the water retention.   Because of Stanozolol’s low androgenic properties Stanozolol is commonly stacked with stronger androgenic compounds.

For bulking up AH-89 can be stacked w/ either TT-40 or Mass.  For dieting AH-89 can be stacked with Tren.  A milder stack can be AH-89 and MMA-3 that can help improve the joints, tendons, and ligaments strengths thus dramatically reducing the chances of injury..

AH-89’s cousin Stanozolol can free up bound testosterone by blocking (SHBG) Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin.  Stacking AH-89 with any highly androgenic compound will supercharge that compound because the extra testosterone will less likly be bound up by SHBG.

AH-89’s cousin Stanozolol can act as a IGF-1 stimulator.  IGF-1 is one of the most potent natural inhibitors of muscle cell death.  IGF-1 can send signals to muscle cells that can lead to muscle growth.

Time your Carbohydrates to Save Muscle and Recover Fast

April 10, 2009

Carbohydrates are the most misunderstood part of our diet. Some people think carbs are evil. Endurance athletes live off of a mostly carb diet. The biggest part of this misunderstanding is the misunderstanding of how carbs are used as energy. Insulin is the hormone that controls how fast carbohydrates are either stored or burnt. The quicker your body burns carbs as energy the more carbs you need to burn as energy. When you are producing a lot of Insulin you body slows down it’s ability to burn fat. That is why someone can get fat on a low fat high carbohydrate diet.

There is a misconception that Insulin is one of the most powerful anabolic hormones. Insulin is a weak anabolic hormone but a very strong anticatabolic hormone. Anabolism is muscle growth and Insulin is a weak transporter of protein but a very strong transporter of carbohydrates.

Cell death by catabolism is caused by not enough energy from ATP to repair the cell.

Anabolism is caused by a supercompensation reaction caused by catabolism. The best training method for anabolism is to trigger the use of all muscle fiber types. Taking the complete spectrum of muscle fibers to the edge of ATP deprivation creating a catabolic reaction and triggering a supercompensatory environment creates large amounts of anabolism.

The path from carbohydrate to ATP = carbohydrate -> Glucose-6-phosphate -> glycolysis -> Pyruvic acid -> acetyl coA -> Citric Acid cycle -> 2H+ and 2e- -> Electron Transport chain -> ATP

Carbohydrates need Insulin to be transported into muscle and liver cells for storage. Insulin can slow down the burning of fat and speed up the storing of fat. Insulin is doing this because it is prioritizing carbohydrate usage and contributing to storing calories the most effective way as fat. This process is called glycogenesis. All carbohydrates are forms of sugar and all of them get broken down into glycogen by glycogenesis.

Insulin is one of the only hormones which drops during exercise. The main reason is due to increased efficiency due to mechanical pumping while exercising. If insulin did not drop during exercise blood sugar would drop to rapidly and your workout would be done very quickly.

Glycemic Index and Glycemic Load are 2 ways carbohydrates are measured on their effect on Insulin. The Glycemic Load is the more important metric. Gylcemic Index measures the speed that your body can break down the carbohydrate into glucose. Glycemic Load is a measure of how much Insulin will be released when eating a certain amount of food. The more Insulin the less fat your body will burn and the more your body will prioritize on using carbohydrates as energy.

Carbohydrate literally means watered carbon. Carbohydrates by divination attract water wherever they are present. When you are tired while eating enough food you may be dehydrated. Your body needs water to transport carbohydrates. Your body needs carbohydrates to transport water.

The Journal Obesity Research showed “Carbohydrate consumption–acting via insulin secretion and the “plasma tryptophan ratio”–increases serotonin release; protein intake lacks this effect.” Low Serotonin can cause depression and high serotonin can cause euphoria. Carbohydrates can become addicting and give people a drug like effect.

There are several different types of carbohydrates used by Max Muscle, Amylopectin, Maltodextrin, Trehalose, Dextrose, Lactose & Fructose.

Amylopectin is a high molecular weight carbohydrate that quickly passes through the stomach getting to the intestines. Amylopectin quickly increases blood glucose levels and increases insulin levels. Amylopectin is perfect for improving glycogen storage very quickly after exercise. Amylopectin should only be used as an after workout recovery supplement. Amylopectin raises insulin so much that long term regular use causes insulin resistance. Insulin resistance can lead to diabetes.

Maltodextrin is easily digestible, being absorbed as rapidly as glucose. Maltodextrin can be derived from any starch, usually rice, corn or potato.

Trehalose is a disaccharide formed from starch. It has high water retention capabilities.
Trehalose is also an antioxidant.

Dextrose is the biologically active form of glucose. Dextrose is closest in chemistry to blood sugar.

Lactose is left in trace amounts in certain whey protein powders. Lactose is a disaccharide. Many people don’t have enough of the enzyme lactase to digest lactose. None of the Max Muscle proteins have enough lactose to cause me any problems. I am highly lactose intolerant.

Fructose is a monosacchride found in many foods including honey. Fructose is derived from the digestion of sucrose. The difference between crystalline fructose and high-fructose corn syrup is 98% fructose vs. 50/50 split of fructose and glucose.

Carbohydrates are the most misunderstood part of the American diet. If used properly carbohydrates can save muscle keep you hydrated and give you tons of energy. If misused carbohydrates can make you fat and turn you diabetic. Carbohydrates can be addicting. For athletes carbohydrates are the fastest way to recover and stop muscle damage. Make sure you time your carbohydrates correctly and you will stay successful in your athletic endeavors


Creatine: Even More Anabolic than You Thought

July 18, 2008

Using supplemental Creatine increases the amount of IGF-1 (Insulin Growth Like Factor 1) inside muscles. IGF-1 is a catalyst for Insulin and is produced by Growth Hormone. IGF-1 stimulates cell growth and lengthens cell life. IGF-1 can protect against cell and DNA damage by way of an enzyme family called AKT. AKT builds muscle and slows down cell death. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akt

Creatine increases Growth Hormone production. Acute creatine loading enhances human growth hormone secretion.

Growth Hormone increases the amount of IGF-1. Correlations of growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I): effects of exercise and abuse by athletes.

“These findings indicate that creatine supplementation during resistance-exercise training increases intramuscular IGF-I concentration in healthy men and women, independent of habitual dietary routine.”


Special Report: Do You Know Which Protein is Best For You?

May 28, 2008

Why are many so many types of protein in the market?

Do the different proteins do different jobs?

Do the Proteins breakdown in the same way?

Have you ever wondered why some people never gain muscle even though they seem to live in the gym? Could they be taking the wrong protein?

If you go into a store to buy a can of protein you will find many protein formulas to choose from. You may ask; why shouldn’t I just buy the cheapest? Instead of asking about price, ask about how well that protein will get you to your goal.

Not all proteins are created equal.

Different proteins breakdown at different times; what is best to fill you up during the day isn’t best right after a workout.

Right after a workout you want quick digesting protein that will repair muscle quickly. Max Muscle’s Iso-Extreme is a great formula for quick recovery from those muscle blasting workouts. Your recovery will be so much easier because over 1/4 of Iso-Extreme being made of anti-catabolic Branch Chain Amino Acids. Since Iso-Extreme digests in less than 2 hours it makes a perfect addition to your after workout anabolic arsenal.

Max Muscle’s High 5 is a proven blend of 5 of the best proteins available to create a time-released formula. Why use a time release formula? To keep your anabolic engine running you need extra protein in between meals. High 5 delivers protein in different cycles starting immediately and lasting up to 4 hours.

High 5 gives you a steady dose of highly anabolic amino acids that are rebuilding your muscle for hours & hours instead of running through your gut too quickly. With Glutamine as an added bonus you will absorb those aminos better and recover faster.

High 5 is designed to give you a filling sensation that will help you keep you calorie count in check. We are all looking for an appetite suppressant without side-effects. High 5 can provide pre-op Bariatric patients with a full feeling without the calories.

Max Muscle’s Maxpro protein uses easily digestible amino acids. Maxpro has a lot Nitrogen in it. Nitrogen is one of the most important parts of protein production. You are building more muscle when you have more protein coming in than going out. If more nitrogen goes out than comes in you are in trouble because you are breaking down too much muscle.

Max Muscle’s Triple Whey Protein is an economical way for you to increase your protein content each day. Max Muscle added the muscle protecting amino acid L-Glysine to fortify your anabolic recovery.

Max Muscle’s Triple Whey is unique because enzymes that aid in muscle recovery and digestion are included. You will not find these ingredients in similar protein formulas. Triple Whey has a high amount of muscle repairing BCAAs.

Protein powders are NOT all created equal. Using the right protein is the best way to keep you anabolicly growing.

Get and keep your anabolic growth by taking the right protein and the right time.
