Every serious lifter on the planet wants to pack on the most amount of muscle in the shortest amount of time. Some lifters are genetically gifted and can grow with minimal training due to superior genetics, whereas 99% of people have who are train fall under the hard gainer category. Hard Gainers are defined as anyone that does not put on muscle mass easily. Hard Gainers is not a myth, a recent study reported that when 585 male and female subjects completed a 12-week of resistance exercise program, there was a shockingly wide range of muscle growth and strength responses. The hard gainers lost 2% of their muscle mass and didn’t gain any strength whatsoever. The best responders increased muscle mass by 59% and increased their 1RM strength by 250%. Remember, these individuals were subjected to the exact same training protocol. The good news is that now MHP has released two powerful new supplements to increase muscle mass by altering growth factors naturally. There is no longer an excuse to be called a hard gainer with MHP’s MYO-X and T-BOMB Stack. These two revolutionary supplements enhance the two most powerful anabolic factors for increasing muscle mass to date: myostatin and testosterone.
Testosterone is called the “King of Muscle Building” because without it, you’re not going to be making any training gains in strength or muscle mass. Testosterone is such a powerful anabolic hormone, that when dosages of testosterone are administered to healthy young men, there was a significant increase in muscle size and strength without exercise. When exercise is added to testosterone supplementation, an even greater effect on strength is achieved. The same research group conducted an interesting study on different dosages of testosterone and how it affected muscle strength. The researchers discovered that testosterone was associated with a dose-dependent increase in leg press strength and power. Meaning that the changes in leg press strength and power was the highest for the groups that had higher testosterone. If your testosterone levels are not at peak levels, forget gains muscle mass, strength, or losing bodyfat. Intense training over a period of time can dampen your body’s natural testosterone production.
There is a thin line between training hard and overtraining, so if your strength and muscle mass is not increasing, it may be that your testosterone levels are suppressed due to overtraining. Many serious lifters or serious strength athletes may think that taking a week off from training is all that is needed to prevent overtraining or going lighter will solve the problem…wrong!! One study documented the hormonal responses of an elite drug free Olympic weightlifter over a 21-week period. At the end of the study, the person’s testosterone levels were still not back to normal levels and cortisol levels remained high after 6 weeks of reduced training. It indicated that the physiological stress induced by intense training may last for more than 6 weeks even when the training volume was decreased by more than half. Obviously, it takes more than a week and may even take several weeks to fully recuperate. This study shows how easy it is to destroy your bodies anabolic capacity with high volume, intense training. The key to intense training is to make sure your bodies natural testosterone levels do not become suppressed during intense training. Taking a natural testosterone-based supplement such as MHP’s T-BOMB can help prevent overtraining and increase testosterone levels.
T-BOMB II is the most explosive testosterone formula on the market today, scientifically formulated to help optimize the production of testosterone’s balance and regulate other key hormones for male performance. T-BOMB II’s proprietary 5-Phase Male Hormone Optimizing Complex, Optimone-5™, helps boost the natural production of testosterone, lowers estrogen levels by inhibiting the conversion of testosterone to estrogen and by hindering the estrogen receptor, increases free testosterone by lowering SHBG and inhibits the production of DHT. T-BOMB II’s unique 2nd Messenger Hormone Amplifier Complex helps to improve hormone receptor cell signals and helps increase the effects of testosterone.
This herb boosts testosterone levels, thanks to its high content of furostanolic saponins. These phytochemicals work in the body to increase the release of luteinizing hormone from the pituitary gland, which influences the testicles to increase testosterone production. Research also shows that men taking fenugreek for eight weeks doubled their strength gains compared with those taking a placebo.
Otherwise known as tongkat ali or longjack, this herb has traditionally been used in Malaysia to increase sexual prowess and virility in men. Early studies using rats and mice found that Eurycoma increased sexual activity and testosterone in males. New research in humans shows it significantly boosts testosterone and decreases cortisol levels, particularly during exercise.
This type of nettle grows mainly in North America and is known scientifically as Urtica dioica. It boosts T levels by keeping the testosterone molecule free from a carrier protein known as sex hormone–binding globulin (SHBG) that prevents it from binding with androgen receptors in the muscle cells. Higher concentrations of free testosterone allow the hormone to bind to the androgen receptors in muscles and instigate more growth.
This small palm plant is known formally as Serenoa repens and is common to the southeastern United States. Saw palmetto berry extract is rich in fatty acids and phytosterols that provide the majority of its benefits. It works by inhibiting the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase, which normally converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). By inhibiting the 5-alpha-reductase enzyme, saw palmetto reduces the amount of testosterone that is converted into DHT, thus keeping testosterone levels up, as well as its muscle-building effects.
This is actually an extract from a fungus that grows on some insects, such as caterpillars and ants. It maintains levels of hormones like testosterone, increases the body’s resistance to stress, improves cholesterol levels, regulates insulin release, and boosts energy and mental focus. To boost testosterone levels, cordyceps binds to specific receptors on the testicles to increase testosterone production similar to the way that luteinizing hormone does.
Myostatin is the greatest single catabolic limiting factor of muscle growth. If you want to build muscle, you have to suppress myostatin levels. Intense training is one way of suppressing myostatin levels. One study published in 2004 found that healthy male subjects engaged in intense resistance training had a 20% decrease in serum myostatin, which in turn resulted in a 30% gain in strength and a 12% gain in muscle mass over 10 weeks of training. So in terms of muscle gain, anything that drops serum myostatin below 20% of baseline is likely to result in clinically significant muscle gains. This natural growth factor protein exists in our bodies and works to regulate and limit muscle growth in a genetically predetermined pattern. Clinical evidence and case studies have confirmed how myostatin suppresses muscle growth; therefore inhibiting myostatin may be a new and novel approach to enhance muscle growth. Since the discovery of myostatin in 1997, scientists have been intrigued by its actions and have sought methods of intervention to reduce myostatin levels and induce muscular growth. For instance, research at Johns Hopkins University as early as 2001 showed that a 20% reduction in exercise-induced serum myostatin resulted in significant gains in muscle mass. This scientific investigation has shown signs of promise at times, and now MHP has brought a product to market, which they say has a capacity to modulate myostatin levels in athletes.
The main ingredient in MYO-X is a follistatin-rich extract of egg yolk from fertilized chicken eggs known as MYO-T12. Follistatin is a protein that has been shown to inhibit myostatin, which is basically a protein that inhibits muscle from growing too big. You likely recall seeing photos of mice, cattle, and even a human baby that do not produce normal levels of myostatin like the rest of us and, therefore, have much larger than normal levels of muscle mass. You can reduce myostatin production by blocking the gene that produces it.
Follistatin is a protein that has been found to effectively inhibit myostatin and allow for enhanced muscle growth. While little is still known about how myostatin inhibits muscle growth, recent research from Finland suggests one method. The
Finnish researchers found that blocking myostatin leads to an increase in
muscle-protein synthesis. For decades scientists have hunted high and low for natural ingredients that are a source of follistatin or other substances that would block myostatin. Carlon Colker, M.D., discovered follistatin in egg yolk from fertilized chicken eggs. More specifically, it appears to be located in the membrane of the yolk of these fertilized eggs. He developed a process to optimize the myostatin-inhibiting activity in yolk membranes, and the resulting
product is MYO-T12. Research on MYO-T12 shows that the amount delivered in one serving of MYO-X reduced myostatin levels in men by almost 50% in as little as 12 hours. Therefore, MYO-X may be the first supplement on the market designed to lower a myostatin level that actually delivers.
To get maximum muscle building benefits, stack MYO-X with T-BOMB II testosterone booster. The products work synergistically together. T BOMB II helps boost the natural production of testosterone, lowers estrogen levels by both inhibiting the conversion of testosterone to estrogen and by hindering the estrogen receptor, supports free testosterone by lowering SHBG and may reduce the production of DHT. Stacking MYO-X with T-BOMB II will help you build muscle through two totally different – but complimentary – anabolic growth maximizing pathways.
