I'm seriously want to gain muscles on my things and calfs?What supplement and training must I apply to gain more power and endurance?

Legs: Let's assume you meant "thighs and calves". Your training for the lower body should focus on compound exercises. Squats and deadlifts should be your starting points. Supplements are just that, not replacements for excellent nutrition. Excellent nutrition trumps any supplement on the market every day of the week. ...Read more

Natural supplements: are the best way to attempt boosting your testosterone. Medications have side effects and are illegal for the Olympics! Zinc supplementation has been shown to be of some benefit in optimizing testosterone levels Vitamin D and whey protein may also be of some benefit. The most important thing to do is train and eat right. Best of luck! :) ...Read more

BP 134/94; should I be on meds or work on lowering it with supplements, diet and cardio exercise first?

Probably: Current guideline favors a lower threshold (120 systolic) and thus you may well benefit from further lowering. If you are overweight, weight reduction and regular exercise should be the first step. Cutting down on salt intake may help some people. Else you need to consult your doctor re. what would be the best option for you. Regardless, do something about it. ...Read more

Can i take a fat burner supplement or do a basic cardio while taking isotritinion?

Can i take a fat burner supplement or do a basic cardio while taking isotritinion?

Yes: I know you've got some pretty severe drug restrictions with isotretinoin--but you should not have problems with an herbal "fat burner"--although frankly, they don't do much good. I recommend Metformin, to restore insulin receptor sensitivity, to help you lose weight. Also, white kidney bean extract taken with carbohydrates (when you "fall of the wagon") acts as a "starch blocker." ...Read more

I'm working out in the gym. Weight training and cardio. Goal = get in shape. Want to know about protein supplements. Good n bad. What's best?

Get protein from foo: You sound like you are on a great program for getting in shape. I would talk with a trainer about protein supplements. I believe that if you are eating correctly, you will need need supplements. They are often recommended as meal relplacements which is not a good idea. If you are in the beginning of your diet and exercise plan,and are beginning to see results, don't change anything right now. ...Read more

Is Hydroxycut a safe weight loss supplement? 1-2 hours of cardio 5 days/week for 3 months and haven't lost any weight. I want to try a supplement.

Food Diary: No. It is not safe. It will not lead to any real or lasting weight loss. If you are not losing weight then you are either not eating enough calories, or you are eating the wrong amount and kind of calories. The next indicated and most effective thing you can do is to find an online tool to help you keep a food diary for seven days that will give you the total amount of calories and the kind ...Read more

Asian M High BP Bodybuilding/Cardio exercise take BSN NO Xplode (Caffeine+Creatine+NO) supplement.Can't workout hard without it.Can I take it safely?

Difficult Quetion: It will be very hard to get a 'good' or even correct answer to this. The problem is that supplement companies are not subject to inspection/regulation by the FDA, and there are very few independent studies that are ever done on their products. So... it's difficult to know the compounds that are actually in the substance - as well as their amounts. Buyer beware... ...Read more
