โ€‹โ€‹๐Ÿ”Ž Under the scope: Israel Adesanya gynecomastia


In the most anticipated fight of this season of MMA there has been an issue that has caused a great controversy (apart from having been a very good fight that I recommend watching), the recent gynecomastia of the winner Israel Adesanya.


โœ”๏ธThe facts

โ•Adesanya went to the fight with an ostentatious gynecomastia on his right nipple, which caught the attention of the commentators and presenters ๐ŸŽ™, this may be due to various factors and since steroid gynecomastia usually occurs bilaterally, we could think that it is a case of gynecomastia caused by repeated trauma to the same area (which could be given that he is a skilled combatant ๐ŸฅŠ), but I do not agree with this theory, the development of gynecomastia is too conspicuous to be the result of trauma and I consider that it is due to the use of doping substances.


๐Ÿ“Explanation

โ•In the elite sports world, quoting Nate Dรญaz "everyone is on steroids" and this phrase is not as crazy as it seems, there are many ways that athletes can be doped without testing positive ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿ”ฌ (about which I will do a post in the future, because there are very useful substances that due to their short life are practically undetectable), in the case of Israel I believe that he used Testosterone in water base which tends to aromatize a lot and did not use any type of SERM or AI since these have a much longer detection time โŒ›๏ธ (such as the positive one for Clomiphene by Brock Lesnar) and since the way to cure gynecomastia (which we will talk about in a future post) requires medications that would appear as a positive in a test, he decided to compete with gynecomastia .


โ•I invite you to look at the images of the combat and say whats your opinion, mine is clear and I think that it does not detract him from the victory ๐Ÿฅ‡, because given the use of doping substances in the elite sports world, surely both winner and loser have used some kind of PEDs.

โ€‹โ€‹๐Ÿ“œPro's Protocol: MGF and IGF proliferation and differentiation enhancement protocol


๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿ”ฌTheory

โœ”๏ธMGF is produced in damaged muscle tissue (a situation that occurs after training, for example) as a mechanism for repairing and building new tissue (cell proliferation ๐Ÿงฌ). These effects are generally achieved as has been seen in various studies with training that combines eccentric and concentric loads.

โœ”๏ธAfter training our IGF-1 and MGF levels are at their peak โฌ†๏ธ, this is partly due to the IGF-1 binding proteins (such as IGFBP-4 that binds to IGF-1 and inhibits its anabolism promoting effects) are less after a workout โœŒ๐Ÿป.

โœ”๏ธOur function would be to try to administer these growth factors in the most similar way to a natural release pattern but with a much greater potency since we will exogenously ๐Ÿ’‰ administer much more quantity than that released naturally (inducing the myogenesis process artificially).


๐Ÿ“Protocol

We cannot use the two substances at the same time ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿปfor a simple reason, when we use IGF it will occupy and saturate all receptors due to its greater affinity and potency compared to MGF, therefore inhibiting the cell proliferation process initiated by MGF and replacing it by the IGF habitual cell differentiation process.
Cell proliferation induced by MGF will occur when IGF-binding proteins are at a minimum, being the ideal time โฑ after training.

โ•Therefore, our protocol will be based on two phases, the first of them a phase of cell proliferation ๐Ÿงซ in response to exogenous administration of MGF and a phase of cell differentiation induced by IGF (differentiating the cells previously created thanks to the proliferative activity of MGF).


๐Ÿ“A general protocol would be like this:

โœ”๏ธWeeks 1-4: We would administer PEG-MGF at doses of 1000-3000mcg per week divided into 2 applications per week due to its time of action, injected intramuscularly (since it is an autocrine hormone belonging to skeletal muscle ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ) just after training.

โœ”๏ธWeeks 5-8: We would administer IGF-1 LR3 at a dose of 50-120mcg daily injected subcutaneously (because it is an endocrine hormone) for 6-12 hours
after training (to avoid inhibiting endogenously produced MGF activity after training), on rest days ๐Ÿ’ค it would be the same when administered.

๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿ”ฌIt can be administered with some insulin (following our usual protocol with ultra-rapid insulin) to decrease โฌ‡๏ธ the breakdown of the IGF-binding protein called IGFBP-3, which would increase the half-life of IGF.

โ€‹โ€‹๐Ÿ”Ž Under the scope: RAD 140

It is a third generation SARM, being investigated ๐Ÿ”ฌ by Radius Health with the aim of serving for TRT and as a treatment for prostate or breast cancer with the fewest possible side effects.

โœ…Pros

โœ”๏ธHas a potency similar to testosterone, mg for mg has a great potency.
โœ”๏ธHas a half-life of 60 hours โฑ (contrary to the 14 that are often said).
โœ”๏ธ Has a high affinity for androgen receptors, increasing the oxidation of fatty acids ๐Ÿ”ฅ.
โœ”๏ธDoes not aromatize or convert to DHT therefore it has no androgenic capacity.
โœ”๏ธRaises transaminases much less than the rest of the less potent SARMS.
โœ”๏ธBasal metabolic rate increases.
โœ”๏ธHas a neuroprotective ๐Ÿง  effect (increases the feeling of well-being and libido).

โŒCons

โœ–๏ธBy increasing the dose it loses the selectivity characteristic of SARMS.
โœ–๏ธThe lipid profile worsens.
โœ–๏ธElevation of transaminases.

๐Ÿ“„Summary

โ•It is a very powerful SARM with a lot of different benefits and few side effects ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป, doses of 14-50mg are recommended depending on weight and goals and its half-life is 60 hours.

โ€‹โ€‹๐Ÿ“ Bodybuilding Contest Preview: NPC European Pro

The contest with the best line-up before Mister Olympia is approaching, the NPC European Pro that will take place from October 8 to October 10 in Alicante, Spain.


โ•Great names of bodybuilding like Big Ramy, Regan Grimes, Rafael Brandao or James Hollingshead are going to compete, apart from the appearance of old starts like Lukas Osladil โœ”๏ธ.

โ•Due to the Coronavirus situation, the Top 3 will be awarded with a direct pass to Mr Olympia ๐ŸŽซ, therefore all participants will strive to arrive in the best possible condition.


๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ทThe Brazilian athlete Rafael Brandao, after having done the contest prep during the entire quarantine with Flex Lewis in the Dragons Lair ๐Ÿ‰, arrives with a spectacular physical condition and very good forms, he is missing some size but I see a possibility of him being in the Top 3.

๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡งThe British athlete James Hollingshead has one of the best physical conditionings I have ever seen, with a very low fat and water percentage โฌ‡๏ธ and perfect form being trained by Patrick Tuor.

๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ฌThe Egyptian athlete Big Ramy arrives with a brutal size as he has us used to ... Now the only thing left for him is to up his conditioning game, under the tutelage of his current coach, the Doctor Death, I have no doubt that ihecan arrive in an incredible condition.

๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆThe Canadian bodybuilder Regan Grimes will probably surprise the public, in the most recent photos he has been seen with a brutal back ๐Ÿฆ and a mid section more typical of a classic phisyque bodybuilder than an Open Bodybuilding athlete.


โ•What are your Top 3 picks? Pay attention to the show, because after it a prize awaits.

โ€‹โ€‹๐Ÿ”– Pro tip of the day: carb cycling

Carb cycling is a plan that consists of rotating High, Moderate and Low carbohydrate intakes according to your daily workout plan and to the end goal of your diet.


๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿ”ฌAccording to the current research, when the amount of glycogen is lower the basal metabolic rate increases ๐Ÿ”ฅ (in part due to the enhance mitochondrial density), increasing fat burning up to three times the amount of fat that the control group burned (but it can also cause a greater loss of muscle ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿป).


๐Ÿ“One of the simplest methods of carb cycling (and very useful to see how your body reacts to it) is known as "Fuel for the work required", the premise of this method is simple, adjust ๐Ÿ“ˆ the amount of carbohydrates consumed depending on the training needs.

โ•An example of this routine would be on leg days using high carbs ๐Ÿš, on upper body moderate carbs ๐Ÿ™ and on rest days low carbs ๐Ÿฅฉ.

โ•If your goal is to progress in a specific muscle group, just change the high carb days to the days of that specific muscle group โœ”๏ธ, if you train a strong muscle group the first thing in the morning โ˜€๏ธ, it would be advisable to do the high carb day the day before, since muscle glycogen is not lost at night, only liver glycogen.

โ€‹โ€‹๐ŸŽฅ Video: How hard should you train from the experts perspectives

Recently the Canadian athlete and youtuber Jeff Nippard made a video interviewing 5 of the greatest personalities in the training world: Mike Israetel, John Meadows, Stefi Cohen, Eric Helms and Greg Nuckols, with a simple question: How hard should you train to build Muscle?


These were their responses:

๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿซ Dr. Mike Israetel: we must train hard enough to achieve gains but not so that our next training is affected, at the beginning of a 4-week mesocycle we should train less hard (3RIR) and increase ๐Ÿ“ˆ the load and repetitions progressively and at the end of the mesocycle very hard (we should reduce 1 RIR each week until we reach failure โ˜ ๏ธ) and then do a deload phase.

๐Ÿ‹๐ŸปJohn Meadows: depends on how advanced you are, but the main progression has to be in the form of strength ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ, for begginers (1-2 years) they dont need sets to failure or high volume, for intermediates they need to add more volume and strengh, and for advanced lifters they should increase volume, increase intensity and add advanced techniques ๐Ÿ“ like cluster sets, drop sets ... The most important thing for advanced athletes is to use mechanical tension โš™๏ธ.

๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿซ Dr Stefi Cohen: you have to work obsessively, people don't train hard enough, you have to push yourself to the limit but also rest as necessary ๐Ÿ’ค, training to failure is necessary to improve strength, your workouts have to focus on increasing intensity each workout (always using accumulation phases), dedicate 6 to 8 weeks to training to the limit, trying to increase โฌ†๏ธ your maximum weight each week.

๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿซ Dr Eric Helms: You need an RPE very close to failure to reach hypertrophy, or a weight that with enough volume will lead to failure, the muscle needs to feel a constant mechanical tension in order to grow, you have to combine a medium volume with a high weight โœ”๏ธ, you dont have to leave many repetitions in the tank โœ–๏ธ but also do not do very few repetitions with a lot of weight to achieve hypertrophy.

๐Ÿ‹๐ŸปGreg Nuckols: it depends on the athlete, the exercise and the objective to be achieved, the workouts will depend on two things, how hard to push each set and how hard to push each session, for hypertrophy, the most effective is to approach failure , or what he calls "technical breakdown" ๐Ÿ“ (when you start to use momentum instead of proper technique, it would be time to stop ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿป), an RPE of 8 is recommended, the volume of training will depend on how you feel when you leave the gym and how recovered you are before your next workout.

โ€‹โ€‹๐Ÿ˜‚ Fun fact: Markus Ruhl farts and burps

The German bodybuilder Markus Ruhl ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช has always been known for two things: his monstrous size (being bigger than Ronnie Coleman or Jay Cutler) and the farts and burps that matched his size.

Due to his very high calorie diet ๐Ÿš, he spent most of his time farting or burping as can be seen in various YouTube compilations.

โ•In the words of Jay Cutler: "If before or after a competition he entered the bathroom ๐Ÿšฝ before the rest of the competitors, we could say goodbye to enter the same bathroom, it was time to go to the women's bathroom ๐Ÿ‘ ".

โ•In the words of his training partner Dennis big bad Wolf: "The heavier the load ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿป, the more you had to move away from him, the probability of a fart was much higher."

โ€‹โ€‹๐Ÿ”– Pro tip: Substitute T4 for T3 in a combination therapy


Nowadays combined T3 and T4 therapies are often prescribed to mimic the normal function of the thyroid glands, people who undergo these therapies obtain a significant improvement in their quality of life compared to the previous situation, but there is a way to improve even more the well-being sensation.


๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿ”ฌAs it can be seen in the publication of the New England Journal of Medicine of 1999, in the article by Bunevicius et al. , the replacement ๐Ÿ” of part of the T4 in therapies with a high amount of it (doses greater than 50mcg per day of T4) by T3 caused a large number of improvements in patients such as:

โ•Greater energy.
โ•Better concentration ๐Ÿง .
โ•An improvement in well-being.
โ•Reduction of side effects such as: dizziness, heat, chills, blurred vision and nausea ๐Ÿคฎ among others.


๐Ÿ“Protocol

โ•The protocol consists of reducing the dose of T4 by 50mcg and replacing it with 12.5mcg of T3.
โ•As we can see the reduction is given in a percentage of 4:1 therefore to avoid possible side effects I would recommend ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป gradually decreasing the dose of T4 by 4mcg for each 1mcg of T3 included until reaching the replacement of 50mcg of T4 for 12.5mcg of T3 โœ”๏ธ.

โ€‹โ€‹๐Ÿ”– Rapid Fat Loss Protocol from Lyle McDonald

In the book Rapid Fat Loss Handbook Lyle Mcdonald shows a simple way to lose fat and weight quickly and if some principles applied to the specific physiology of the athlete are followed, the least amount of muscle mass possible will be lost, this protocol is very useful in face a minicut in the middle or end of the volume phase.


๐Ÿ“The protocol that will be divided into several categories according to weight and sex will require that a previous basis be applied.

โœ”๏ธKnow your LBM.
โœ”๏ธConsume a multivitamin daily.
โœ”๏ธDrink at least two liters of water daily.
โœ”๏ธConsume salt and potassium at all meals.
โœ–๏ธThe maximum of carbohydrates and fats cannot exceed 30g per day.
โœ”๏ธConsume fish oil.


Categories:


Category 1

๐Ÿง‘๐ŸผMen = 15% or less body fat
๐Ÿ‘ง๐ŸผWomen = 24% or less body fat

โ•People in this category have 2 cheat meals a week, but they do not have a carbohydrate load.
โ•They should follow this diet for 6-12 weeks in a row.


๐ŸšCarbohydrate loads

โ•The amount of carbohydrates to consume during the loading phase will depend on the duration of the carbload phase.

โŒ›๏ธFor a duration of 5 hours: 3-6 gr x kg of LBM
โŒ›๏ธFor a duration of 24 hours: 8-12 gr x kg of LBM

โ€‹โ€‹๐Ÿ˜‚Fun fact: Spain the mecca of primobolan

Legislation on the legality of steroids has changed over time, what was previously legal and easy to achieve is now how much less an impossible mission ... years ago bodybuilders made a pilgrimage to Spain to get primobolan from a pharmacy without a prescription ... . welcome to Spain the country of vice Primobolan

โ˜€๏ธThe coastal cities of Spain were not only known for their beautiful beaches ๐Ÿ–, they were also known for their over-the-counter pharmacy primobolan.

๐Ÿ“œStories are rumored of bodybuilders like Lee Labrada and Dennis Wolf hanging around Spain's coastal pharmacies with backpacks loaded with Primobolan.

โ€‹โ€‹๐Ÿ“œStomach health guide: Prebiotics

Prebiotics are substances that nourish specific microorganisms in the intestine, favoring the growth of populations of beneficial bacteria (generally the prebiotics are polysaccharides and oligosaccharides).

โœ”๏ธThey stimulate the increase in the population of bacteria such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli, responsible for the fermentation process in the colon.

โœ”๏ธThey produce a decrease in the stomach pH, managing to control the populations of the most harmful microorganisms.

โœ”๏ธAt the blood level, they have various functions such as the reduction of cholesterol, triglyceride and phospholipid levels โฌ‡๏ธ, the absorption of minerals and the reduction of glucose levels, among others.

โœ”๏ธThey improve intestinal defenses ๐Ÿ›ก against intestinal infections.

โœ”๏ธThey reduce the time of intestinal transit and have a laxative effect, which can lead to diarrhea ๐Ÿšฝ or an upset stomach if the dose is not properly regulated.


๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿ”ฌWe have the following types of prebiotics:

๐Ÿง„Inulin: It is a dietary fiber.
๐ŸŒพOligofructose: it is obtained by the enzymatic hydrolysis of inulin.
๐ŸŽPectic substances
๐Ÿฅ›Galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS)
๐Ÿ…Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS)


๐Ÿ“The effectiveness will depend on two factors:

โ•The type of oligosaccharide selected although the average dose to increase the population of bifidobacteria is 15g / day โœ….

โ•The intestinal microbiota of the user, since the number of bifidobacteria prior to the start of treatment is very important, for example in the adult population 3g / day may be sufficient ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป, for this reason an examination of the intestinal microbiota is recommended.

โ€‹โ€‹๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿผโ€โš•๏ธHarm reduction: PEDs and woman

Today the use of PEDs has become very popular among women, whether for aesthetic, athletic or bodybuilding purposes among others, due to the physiology of women the substances and doses that they can use are very different from those of the men, I will try to explain in the simplest way possible how a woman should use PEDs to avoid the maximum number of possible side effects.


๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿ”ฌSide Effects

First, to say that most of the side effects have to do with the virilization of women ๐Ÿง”๐Ÿผ, but there may also be problems related to their fertility ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ and menstrual cycles as well as their resting heart rate and blood pressure, added to the rest of the general side effects of steroids (which will have to be avoided or mitigated in the same way that men do ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ).


๐Ÿ“•Requirements

โ•Women will have to perform a full bloodwork before and after the cycle until their baseline values normalize ๐Ÿ”„.
โ•They will have to keep an accurate record of their menstruation ๐Ÿฉธ (duration, amount, consistency, stains on underwear, absence of menstruation (amenorrhea).
โ•Blood pressure will need to be measured periodically .
โ•Heartbeats ๐Ÿ’“ will have to be taken at rest.
โ•Women do NOT have to do a post-cycle therapy and trying to do the same that a man would do would be equivalent to chemically castrating her โŒ (in any case Clomiphene could be used under the guidelines of an endocrinologist to try to restore the menstrual cycle).


๐Ÿ’ŠPEDs

โœ”๏ธSARMS (at large doses they lose their specificity, but with the guidelines given below the limit will not be exceeded).
โœ”๏ธOxandrolone.
โœ”๏ธNandrolone (I recommend using a short ester).
โœ”๏ธBoldenone (combined with Dutasteride at 0.5mg daily).
โœ”๏ธOxymetholone.
โœ”๏ธMethenolone.


๐Ÿ“Dose:

โšช๏ธThe dose that a man would use divided by 10 (very conservative and imprecise method).
โšช๏ธ1-3mg of active substance per KG of LBM per week (the most accurate method โœ”๏ธ).

โ€‹โ€‹๐Ÿ˜‚Fun fact: Rich Piana almost shooting a TV show drone

๐ŸŒ…Good Fucking Morning! (The natty anthem starts sounding in the background) everyone will be familiar with this introduction and it is no wonder, it was the intro of all the videos posted on Rich Piana's youtube channel ๐Ÿ’ป for years.

โ•The unfortunately deceased bodybuilder and one of the most important personalities in the world of bodybuilding left us many anecdotes, today I am going to talk about the time he almost shot a drone that was recording plans of his house for an interview.

๐Ÿ“นRich Piana recorded his day to day in vlogs, in one of them you can see how he begins to complain that a drone is recording his house from the air and runs for his submachine gun to shoot down the drone.

๐Ÿ€Luckily he didn't manage to shoot down the drone ... And I say luckily because the drone belonged to a television channel with which Rich had agreed to do an interview and our dear Piana had forgotten ๐Ÿง  that they were going to record some aerial shots of his home prior to the interview.

โญAfter the publication of his video, Rich learned that the drone belonged to the television channel that was going to interview him and was forced to cancel โŒ the interview in addition to having to apologize on social networks.
