  • ^^^ I'm not sure about all, but I know some shows accept you as long as you have natural test levels. They should all be this way but I'm not sure... If you're unhealthy (low test is bad) and need synthetic test to have healthy normal levels of test... I mean c'mon.

    But Ron Harris is on HRT and contacted the natural show he competed in and was told it's fine as long as levels are within normal range.

      I can see your point; I had no clue Ron Harris was on HRT either. Most regulations I have read state that if you're on prescription drugs from the banned list it IS okay as long as you provide the documentation of your bloodwork and, like you said, your levels are within the normal range.

      • Layne have you done any studies or do you have any opinions 1,3 Dymethylamylamine??

        • Hey Layne, if I was trying to do HIIT before my first meal of the day (so I could eat right before going to work), what would you take before doing the intervals?

I already know your take on this, therefore, I'm wondering what your response would be to someone making this statement who clearly is an expert in this field as well as yourself.
            carbs by themselves do not increase protein synthesis in adults, but they augment the anabolic response to amino acids

              • well I like doing car pushes but typically if i can't do that, I'll do elliptical.

                I do a 5 minute warm up followed by 10-12 one minute intervals. the first 45 seconds are easy and the last 15 seconds are all out, life or death, as hard as I can possibly go. I do that 10-12 times then do a 10-15 minute cooldown

                • Is d-aspartic acid legal in natural bodybuilding orgs? It looks promising. I'm 55 and could probably use some help if it boost T levels. Thanks...

                    Lol, I tried this and only managed 5 one minute intervals.

                    • I'd also like to know if D-Aspartic acid would be classified as banned for natural organizations. I checked the INBF banned list and it does not list this.

                        yes it's legal. it's just an amino acid. I do not ever see it getting banned

                          i'm not sure if blending denatures it... I am skeptical as to whether or not it does

                            carbs alone have never been shown to increase protein synthesis (although our lab now has data showing that although they don't initiate the meal response of protein synthesis, they can prolong it), but when you combine carbs with protein you get a slightly better response than protein alone

                              I've been seeing an endocrinologist lately because it appears I may be suffering from secondary hypogonadism (failure of pituitary gland to produce proper hormones). I'm getting and MRI soon to see if its caused by a tumor on the gland itself. The treatment is typically human Chorionic Gonadotropin and Testosterone injections. Does this mean I can never compete in a natural show if I have to take these drugs? This is really a bind for me because my test, LH, and FSH levels are all way below normal range and I want to be healthy and all, but how does this effect eligibility for natural contests?
                              first off you need to worry about your health, competing is 2ndary.

                              Some natural orgs will allow you to be on HRT so long as you get regular blood testing to show your testosterone levels are still in the normal range. I would email the organizations, explain your situation and see what their response is
