You can always grow a beard like Eric. The power of the beard supercedes any need for supplements .
It has been proven in many scientific studies that growing a beard increases all of your lifts by 10%. It's the pre-workout you take 2 months prior to lifting.

You know what else is uncomfortable??? Heavy back squats, but we do them. Grow that combat beard and go to work winning the war against gravity. If you don't, the terrorists win.

Re: What supplements to take to get the best results

I've tried a few of those bsn products you listed in the past and frankly they were all garbage. The only things that I've ever really noticed a difference with are the following
1. ETS (atlargenutrition)
2. Creatine (any brand)
3. BCAA
4. Fish oil
5. Whey/simple sugar - mainly for when in training times per day and cat get enough real food in.

Re: What supplements to take to get the best results

It's a well known historical fact that every Viking could log clean and press 400lbs and commonly killed his enemies by shaming him to death over his pitiful squats. It's history folks, look it up. Coincidence? I think not.

Abraham Lincoln (the vampire slayer), Zeus, Odin, Chuck Norris, and ZZ Top. The scientific evidence in favor of beards cannot be denied. Join us or perish......



PS...notice the chest hair as well...yeah, I'm the total package, hahaha

You know who doesn't have chest hair........women.

You need a nice man pelt to cushion a monster 405# bench.

What do we do if we are of Native American descent and thusly, unable to grow a quality beard?

I know there were some BA Indians, so there must be some kind of substitute that is at least somewhat comparable?

Note: Also unable to grow chest hair.

Re: What supplements to take to get the best results

Creatine makes a big difference, IMO.

Whey Protein is just protein, which we all know is important in any diet. Creatine can be found in certain foods, but supplementing with it is a must if you're serious about training.

I think we can arrange for you to receive an honorary beard and chest hair considering that you are 8'5" tall and 1255lbs. What supps did you take to get that big?
