    Remember i had a pre-workout.

    Called Beast Mode.

    It actually de-stimmed me, Think big red got wrecked by it too.

    This was going back about 3-4 years ago.

    Cobra P6 didn't cut the mustard personally.
    Nor did Diablo. (Heresy I know.. lol)

  • I love cobra, probably been through 10 tubs

  • To clarify this is more of a thread to give a heads up of bad supplements that should be avoided at all costs. For example they could either be a health risk, have adverse side effects, sold under false pretenses ,(protein spiking, false claims etc etc)
  • Like mass gainer. Whole product is stupid, created for stupid, ignorant, easily fooled and lazy people with too much disposable income. Soz if that's you. But it's true. Please learn.

    Sorry @eat-more-pies I misunderstood.

    High dosage chromium supplements over a period of time has an correlation with cancer risk.

    News article

  • Mass gainer fan crew checking in... yes I somewhat agree @hamdanz it is one of those products marketed at newbs... I remember seeing an ad for mutant mass, which had a weenie guy with a pre pubescent build, and another picture next to him of a guy who looked like he lived in a gym and ate babies for breakfast. problem is 99% of people use them incorrectly, they either make no changes to their regular diet or they fill their guts with a mass gainer and then have no desire to eat whole food which defeats the purpose. Plain old brown rice is one of the best value for money mass gainers, Personally I like them coz its a quick dumping of extra calories on top of a bulking diet, and for me it's just time and convenience versus money. Calories is calories

    @gerbil, no probs m8. I thought Diablo was a bit shit at first until I looked into the ingredients regarding fat loss and mitochondrial effects.
  • Is age nix,

    even auto correct thinks that shit shouldn't exist.
  • How you tagging people Pies?

    Would have thought you'd just buy a extra tub of protein, and then add oats, dextrose and olive oil etc to a shake? I basically have mass gainer for breakfast, then all I have all day before dinner is a couple of bananas, a shake, and maybe a pie.

    Heaps of mass gainers are highly priced, but every now and then there's a cheap deal on a huge bag of calories. Like that bsn Trumass it's only 12 serves per bag, but each serve is 2 giant scoops of 1200 calories with 50g of protein
    When I do use a mass gainer as above I'll only use a half a scoop in a shake, plus a banana and top up the protein content with creamed rice, yogurt and whatever other shit I find in the fridge

    can't do the blended oats thing, rather cook up a pot of porridge
