Build Muscle: Hexaghen IGF-1 Optimizer Review

You can find it at GNC and The Vitamin Shoppe
I used Hexaghen IGF-1 Optimizer by MuscleMeds awhile ago. I bought it from the Vitamin Shoppe, but you can also find it at GNC. I was not sure if MuscleMeds: Hexaghen IGF-1 was a good choice because it contains hormones, but after doing some research I decided to give it a try.

MuscleMeds: Hexaghen IGF-1 is pricy at $71.99 at GNC and $57.99 at The Vitamin Shoppe.
This product is supposed to help you build muscle faster, recovery faster and give you a good night sleep.
I did notice some results after the first week of taking Hexaghen IGF-1, like more strength, more muscle volume and I actually slept through the night and woke up rested. The only side effect I noticed was pimples on my body (specially my back) when I skipped workout days.

I was so happy with the results. I bought a second box for another 6 cycle, a month after taking the first box But this second time I didn't notice any result :(. Maybe because I didn't workout as hard as I should have.

I would recommend Hexaghen IGF-1 Optimizer to anyone that is seeking to build new muscle cells, just make use you workout hard to make the most out it.

Here are the directions for Hexaghen IGF-1 Optimizer from MuscleMeds:

Hexaghen Fastsorb tablets are designed to be dissolved slowly in the mouth for sub-buccal absorption. Take 2 tablets 30 minutes before bedtime. Place the tablets under your tongue and let dissolve completely, then swallow. Do Not Exceed Two (2) Tablets Per Day.

Each box contains 56 pills = 6 week Cycle:
*6 Week Cycling Instructions*
2 Weeks on (14 days)
1 Week off (7 days)
2 Weeks on (14 days)
1 Week off (7 days)

(Then Repeat Cycle)

Post-Workout: Cyto Gainer vanilla creme review.

Post-Workout Protein Shake
Another great post-workout bodybuilding supplement protein shake!
Cyto Gainer protein shake by CytoSport is a great way to end your workout. It contains 40g of protein to help feed and rebuild muscles. It is also a high calorie shake, this is important because muscles not only need protein but also calories among other things to keep on growing.
It is essential to feed the muscles in the first 20-30 minutes after you finished your workout. Cyto Gainer does a great job at this. It is also lactose free, so you don't have to worried about any side effects.
I personally like Cyto Gainer bottle shake better than the powder one, it taste more creme. Just make you shake Cyto Gainer good before consuming.

Post-Workout Protein Powder: EAS Recovery Protein (Revigor)

As I mention on my: Diets and Nutrition page, food is as important as our workouts. I consider bodybuilding supplements as food, because it feeds the body and helps it rebuild muscle just as food do. It is important to choose the right supplements (like Protein powder) to help speed up the muscle recovery and muscle building process.

In my personal experience I think EAS Recovery Protein (Revigor) is a very good and improved protein powder and way better than the popular Muscle Milk.

Take EAS Recovery Protein: Revigor right after you are done with your workout and you will get a boost of sustained energy, avoiding muscle catabolism. I actually see an improvement on muscle mass, just in a week of using it!

EAS Recovery Protein: Revigor is easy on your stomach and you will not experience the classic "bloated belly" some protein powders give you, like muscle milk.

If you buy the 1.8 LB you will get 11 Serving Per Container: $2 dollars per serving...not bad.

I am done with my first bottle of EAS Recovery Protein: Revigor and will definite get a second one.

Post Workout Supplement: Lean Body Protein Shake.

LEAN BODY RTD protein shake is one of my favorite post workout supplements. Whenever I forget my bottle protein powder I get a LEAN BODY RTD shake from fridge at my gym for $5 dollars. Kind of expensive for a single Protein Shake but is worth the price.
The Flavor is good, It taste natural. I specially like the Banana LEAN BODY RTD flavor. But they are available in Vanilla, Chocolate and Cookies and Cream.
You can get them cheaper at . I have order from them before and the shipping is fast and the products are cheaper than other sites.
Also LEAN BODY RTD is easy on your stomach because is lactose Free. Just make sure to drink it slowly in a period of 20 minutes, so your body can adsorb all the nutrients.
LEAN BODY RTD is a great post workout supplement, with 40 grams of protein and a great flavor. You should definitely give it a try next time you are done with your workout.

Beast Super Test: Anabolic Supplement Review.

Beast Super Test is an Anabolic product.
It is use to maximize testosterone and nitric oxide levels. Testosterone is important in muscle building and also to maintain muscle mass and strength. While nitric oxide helps to increase blood flow, making your muscles look and feel bigger.

Other benefits from Beast (Super Test) as the bottle says:
-Maximizes testosterone
-Libido Enhancer
-Liver and Kidney Detoxifier
-Increase mass and strength

I love Beast Super Test! I have notice changes in my muscle mass. I also have more energy and recover faster from my workouts. This is a true Bodybuilding supplement. I have not notice any side effects, except from my stool coming out in a greenish color.
