  • We have the knowledge and technology today to make natural bodybuilding a viable alternative. Manipulating the anabolic and the catabolic hormones and growth factors with diet and supplementation has become a reality. By taking advantage of what we know about nutrition and supplements, you can now maximize your lean body mass and strength and minimize your body fat to give you that hard, muscular look that at one time was only possible with drug use.

    -Mauro Di Pasquale- Quote from the September 1997 issue of Muscle


  • INTRODUCTION In athletics, there has always been an insatiable quest to find and use ergogenic aids in which to gain an edge over the competition. Bodybuilding and powerlifting are no exceptions. Since the emergence of physique development, bodybuilders have been in pursuit of the perfect physique. This may not be true of all those who weight train, but I can surely say that most of the people who purchase a gym membership, or purchase a barbell set, set out to do one of two things; gain muscular muscle mass or lower their body fat percentage to get ripped. Bodybuilding has evolved into a very competitive sport and so have many of the supplements these athletes use. Many athletes are taking advantage of every opportunity to gain an edge over the competition. The hardcore bodybuilder needs the basics such as, motivation and goal setting, intense and consistent training and proper nutrition and supplementation. The hardcore athlete also needs loads of knowledge to stay ahead of the game. Ever since the steroid laws went into effect, many athletes turned their attention to the supplement industry to see if they could find something that would give them the edge they were seeking. The sad part of this at the time was that there were no supplements that gave them the edge they were seeking. The only things in existence were vitamin & mineral products and some very cheap protein and carbohydrate powders. After awhile, supplement companies & manufacturers took notice of the situation and began to research and develop products that have promise in helping athletes gain that athletic edge. Along with the evolution of the supplement industry there have been many supplement products that do not live up to their label claims. Many bodybuilders and athletes are not aware of the fraudulent claims that are taking place in the supplement industry today. Many athletes are misinformed and most of the supplement companies are in it for the money. It has become very difficult for consumers to purchase a supplement without wondering if it works and meets the label claims or if its completely bogus. This problem has been compounded with the bombardment of two and three page advertisements in magazines and false claims for products that do nothing but burn a hole in the consumers pocket. Have you been wondering which supplements actually deliver real results? Which products really raise testosterone levels giving you similar results to anabolic ergogens? And which ones are total rip-offs? The unscrupulous supplement companies and certain magazines are not going to tell you. These shystie characters would lose millions of dollars in profits if they told the truth. But rest assured there are many companies with research facilities testing and producing some really fantastic products, which deliver the results athletes, are looking for. The purpose of this book is to help bodybuilders and fellow athletes distinguish which supplements are the most effective and result producing products on the market. I am a firm believer that every athlete, regardless of his or her beliefs, are entitled to the truth about ergogenic aids and supplemental products and this includes the hardcore facts. Proper knowledge is essential to help one unleash maximum potential.
