EPISODES OF PSYCHOTIC

THE SCIENCE OF EXPONENTIAL
MUSCLE
GROWTH!
ACTUAL SCENES FROM THE NO-SHOTGUN
NO-SHOTGUN MAY FUEL
*When combined with strength training & a sensible diet. Use only as a dietary supplement. These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease
There are three ways muscles can get larger. The rst and
most limiting is called muscle Hypertrophy. This is where you
practically kill yourself in the gym to force your genetically pre-
existing amount of muscle to get larger in size. Are you the
chosen 1 in 10,000 that God blessed with a ton of fast twitch
muscle? Probably not. So for you and almost all of us, we have
to train hard core just to coerce our genetically limited amount
of muscle to increase in size ever so slightly. And, as you know,
this really sucks. Visualize the individual who trains intensely
and eats right for 10 solid years and a new member walks into
the gym for the rst time ever and is leaner and more muscular
having never touched a weight. Some men and women just
arent gifted with enough fast twitch muscle and, therefore,
struggle with their God given genetics. The great news is that
Hyperplasia can level the playing eld!
Hyperplasia occurs when existing muscle actually forms new
muscle bers and can occur by two different mechanisms. The
rst is actual ber division resulting in splitting or branching of
existing muscle to form more muscle bers. Hyperplasia X-1
(HX-1) occurs during muscle trauma such as heavy negative reps
and high volume/high intensity training. Redlines

unparalleled
energy technology contained in NO-Shotgun

is the driving force


behind the intensity you need to trigger HX-1-induced muscle
growth. Ill get real with you, without insanely attacking the
weights, HX-1 just isnt going to freakin happen. Redlines

the
catalyst that fuels episodes of psychotic physical intensity!
Hyperplasia X-2 or HX-2 is new muscle ber that forms when
muscle ber precursor cells known as satellite cells are
stimulated. This is where the NO-Shotgun

matrix shines a
potent biochemical light. NO2 ([Nitric Oxide-Im talking real Nitric
Oxide, not some fake-@$$ supplement)-induced vasodilation
(opening up the veins and capillaries) literally oods the muscle
with massive amounts of powerful muscle building EX (Ethyl
Ester HCl) compounds. If you review the studies on arginine
or glutamine, these amino acids were infused into the blood
intravenously to stimulate Nitric Oxide or GH (growth hormone).
This is why simple AKG chemical salts of Arginine (Arginine
AKG) have proven to be ineffective at increasing muscle size in
three clinical studies.
YES, IF YOU PURCHASED ANY NO2-TYPE
PRODUCT WITH ARGININE AKG, STUDIES
SHOW YOU GOT PUNKED! DONT FEEL BAD,
THE NO A-AKG SCAM RIPPED YOUR FRIENDS
OFF TOO FOR ABOUT $75,000,000!
Take home message: three studies prove NO2-type products
containing Arginine AKG simply do NOT work. Further, Arginine
should be consumed with Citrulline in order to produce nitric
oxide. NO-Shotgun

contains the sophisticated compound,


Arginine Ethyl Ester HCl (AEX

) which does not need to be injected


and is further enhanced with Citrulline necessary to facilitate NO
production. Along with these ingredients, Ellagic Acid works in
concert with AEX

and Citrulline to further improve NO output.


Theres more: NO-induced vasodilation results in killer pumps in
the gym. The greater the pump the more muscle ber trauma.
The pain associated with The Pump is what Arnold referred
to as better than
sex. The Nitric Oxide
vasodilating effect
of the muscle is very
similar to that which
occurs in the genital
region when one takes
Viagra

or Cialis

. The pump is so pronounced in the muscle


(or genitals) that it is painful due to NOs opening of the veins,
arteries and capillaries like ood gates. This condition brought
on by NO (Nitric Oxide) over lls the muscle with nutrient dense
blood to produce a NASTY PUMP

! Consequently, Arnold was


way ahead of his time when he associated the pain/pleasure
response generated by a great muscle pump as better than SEX!
Follow me closely here!

The physiologic response to NO causes extra trauma to occur
when the blood-engorged

muscle is subjected to INTENSE


weight training. Greater injury to the muscle is a result of
signicantly increased internal pressure (the blood-engorged


pump) within the muscle when muscle bers rub violently
against each other during training. It is my personal theory that
when the vascular (veins etc.) system oods the DAMAGED
MUSCLE with powerful nitrogenic and scientically proven
protein synthesis stimulating compounds like, Branched Chain
Amino Acid Ethyl Esters along with Beta-Alanine Ethyl Ester and
Creatine Ethyl Ester, massive physiologic changes in the muscle
take place and muscle bers can be split and new satellite cells
can be formed to actually cause muscle HYPERPLASIA! This
is where both mechanisms of hyperplasia, HX-1 AND HX-2 take
place I.e., where new satellite cells are formed and muscle bers
branch and split. Until now, gaining ungodly amounts of HX-1
and HX-2-induced muscle occurred only by getting jacked on a
poly-pharmacy of bodybuilding drugs.
And, obviously with a massive pump and the off-the chain
bioactive compounds present, so to are existing muscle
cells getting larger. Its the muscle hypertrophic/hyperplasic


TRIFECTA for gaining and even creating new lean muscle
tissue! The NO-Shotgun

subculture will be the rst generation


to be able to actually create new muscle tissue (hyperplasia)
without injecting massive amounts of steroids, testosterone,
insulin and IGF-1!

Lastly, why have caffeine present when caffeine interferes with
creatine absorption? Well studies show that caffeine interferes
with regular creatine absorption. CEX

, the rst ever Creatine


Ethyl Ester, appears to be unaffected by caffeine because of its
superior ethyl esteried chemical structure stabilized with an
HCl molecule. Further, Redlines explosive energy technology
allows one to train with the insanity and intensity that initiates
the process of splitting muscle bers and causing new satellite
cell formation to reach our goal of HYPERPLASIA! Hopefully
when I run into you at the gym, Arnold Classic or Olympia,
youll have your own outrageous NO-Shotgun

story to
share with me. Just to give you a heads updont take NO-
Shotgun if youre going to walk around with your man-boobs
and cry estrogen-induced tears that youre sore and cant
move for three days. This is what NO-Shotgun

is designed
to do! During my personal chest workout with NO-Shotgun

, I
benched weight that I hadnt done since my competitive days,
then after endless set and reps, wrapped up training with a
personal best 51 dips. The next day, I threw three, 45 lb plates
and a quarter on each side of the Hammer

shoulder press for


9 reps and did the Rear Delt machine with 170 for 14 reps, that
was three more reps with 40 more pounds which is an insane
increase for the small posterior deltoid muscle. This is what
I mean when I say, NO-Shotgun is the catalyst that fuels
episodes of psychotic physical intensity.
Theres another special creatine in NO-Shotgun

that allowed
rats to swim several hundred percent longer than the control
group who incidentally drowned. Sad but true, the take home
message here is dont let your NO-Shotgun

using buddy or
competitor bury you! The blood-engorged pumps, the killer
workouts, staying hard long after the gym and actually making
noticeable gains in muscularity are what you and I live for.
Ive enthusiastically worked many late nights conducting
medical research and into the wee hours of the morning in
VPXs state of the art laboratory to produce NO-Shotgun

and
am so condent that its the best product in its class that Im
making an opening offer right now to any supplement company
of $100, 000 if they can conclusively prove that their product
is better in a double blind University Study at producing lean
muscle, greater ATP production, more explosive workouts and
initiating Nitric Oxide-induced - blood engorged pumps!

Explosive Lean Muscle Growth with
Research-Proven Science!
If you want to speed up lean muscle growth, get this one fact straight: Insulin is the most Anabolic
(muscle building) of all hormones. In fact, insulin triggers more lean muscle growth than Anabolic
Steroids or Growth Hormone! Consequently, the goal of the sugar-free N.O. Shotgun

/Synthe-
Size

Stack is to promote massive increases in insulin without the use of high glycemic index
carbohydrates and thus, prevent insulin resistance. Therefore, the Shotgun/SyntheSize Stack
provides a carbohydrate free approach utilizing research-proven compounds to boost insulin that
have no adverse effect on blood sugar. This method keeps the body highly sensitive and respon-
sive to insulin resulting in greater lean muscle growth and destruction of fat tissue. Efcient insulin
metabolism also allows you to continually access stored body fat to use as energy. The end result
of this Zero Impact Diet Strategy is a ripped and muscular physique!
Making Carbohydrates Obsolete
In assembling the pieces of the scientic puzzle, the Shotgun/SyntheSize Stack was formulated
to mimic the insulin response generated by high glycemic (high GI) carbs (i.e. sugar) to activate
beta-cells and stimulate whole body creatine retention! One of the solutions was to use bis-
Maltalato Oxo-Vanadium (BPOV) which is a potent form of chemically altered Vanadium that
makes beta-cells super responsive to insulin. Additionally, Beta-Alanine was employed to stimu-
late research-proven whole-body creatine retention! In fact, these two compounds are far more
effective than sugar-laden N.O. supplements without the unwanted carb-induced side effects
- water retention, bloating, and an increase in body fat. You train intensely to get lean, hard, and
pumped with crisp, water-free muscle separation, and this is where the sugar free Shotgun/Syn-
theSize Stack out-performs the competition!
Research has proven that the cutting-edge compounds contained in the Shotgun/SyntheSize
Stack work synergistically to effectively stimulate insulin secretion. VPX scientists used a more
scientic carb-free approach to achieve greater receptiveness of the beta-cells by taking advan-
tage of the efcient insulin spiking abilities of protein hydrolysates and the potent anabolic amino
acid, L-Leucine. When post-exercise insulin is increased in the presence of protein hydrolysates
and leucine, massive amounts of muscle building amino acids ood the blood resulting in signi-
cant net protein being deposited into muscle. Finally, the ingestion of creatine in conjunction with
proteins and high-GI carbs is no longer required to stimulate whole-body creatine retention! The
Shotgun/SyntheSize Stack re-wrote cutting edge carb-free muscle science.
Owocs Research-Proven 10-Compound-Protocol to
Ignite Synthesis of Lean Muscle
1) Whey and Casein Protein Hydrolysates: these extraordinary proteins increase insulin produc-
tion by 110% greater than carbs alone and increase glycogen synthesis by 35%. Whey and
Casein Protein Hydrolysates are far superior to intact proteins such as whey, casein and egg
for promoting nitrogen utilization and muscle growth. The powerful lean muscle building effect
occurs after consuming Protein Hydrolysates prior to, during and after training. These special-
ized peptides dump into the blood rapidly causing super high blood levels of amino acids and
increased production of the powerful anabolic hormone, insulin. These two physiological events
result in a potent anabolic (muscle building) response in the body. Shotgun and Synthesize both
contain copious amounts of Whey and Casein Protein Hydrolysates. These potent protein frac-
tions are comprised of 22% Glutamine Peptide, 41% total peptide bonded Essential Amino Acids
(EAAs) and 21% peptide bonded BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids)! This is important be-
cause muscle consists of 78% glutamine while BCAAs and EAAs are the most potent research-
proven muscle building amino acids.
2) L-Leucine intermixed with Protein Hydrolysates has an even greater effect on insulin produc-
tion and muscle growth than Protein Hydrolysates alone. Shotgun and Synthesize are rich in
added free form L-Leucine and Leucine Peptides.
3) Cutting Edge High Tech Creatines: It is well documented research that insulin transports Cre-
atine into muscle tissue. Further, Creatine combined with protein increases creatine retention
within the muscle cell and results in increased lean muscle mass. More insulin means more cre-
atine = greater muscle mass, quicker recovery and increased strength! Shotgun and Synthesize
contain the most anabolic proteins known to man and several cutting edge high tech Creatines
such as, Creatine Taurinate that all exert specialized effects in promoting lean muscle growth,
strength and ATP Resynthesis! Creatine Ethyl Ester HCl (CEX

) was another cutting edge com-


pound brought rst to the market by VPX. We know that creatine is the most proven and po-
tent supplement to increase lean muscle mass and strength and the specic CEX form takes
creatine to a whole new level! CEX

is a membrane permeable form of creatine ethyl ester that


can enter muscle cells without bothering with the regular creatine transporters like sugar etc. This
means up to 98% can enter the muscle compared to regular creatine where only 4% makes it into
the muscle! CEX

does not cause bloating, cramping, or stomach discomfort because it doesnt


sit in the stomach - it gets into muscle tissue fast to support the more production of ATP for mas-
sive intra-cellular volumization, muscle size, power, and strength Well continue to explore our
innovative 10-Compound-Protocol matrix but rst, it is important that you become familiar with the
science of exponential muscle growth in regard to training and supplementation:
The Science of Exponential Muscle Growth
The Training/Supplementation Connection
There are three ways muscles can get larger. The rst and most limiting is called muscle Hyper-
trophy. This is where you practically kill yourself in the gym to force your genetically pre-existing
amount of muscle to get larger in size. Most of us struggle with our God given genetics; however,
the great news is that Hyperplasia can level the playing eld between the genetically challenged
and the genetically gifted!
Hyperplasia occurs when existing muscle actually forms new muscle bers and can occur by
two different mechanisms. The rst is actual ber division resulting in splitting or branching of
existing muscle to form more muscle bers. Hyperplasia X-1 (HX-1) occurs during muscle trau-
ma such as heavy negative reps and high volume/high intensity training. Redlines

unparal-
leled energy technology contained in NO-Shotgun

is the driving force behind the intensity you


need to trigger HX-1-induced muscle growth. Ill get real with you, without insanely attacking

the catalyst that fuels episodes


of psychotic physical intensity!
Hyperplasia X-2 or HX-2 is new muscle ber that forms when muscle ber pre-
cursor cells known as satellite cells are stimulated. This is where the NO-
Shotgun

matrix shines a potent biochemical light. Nitric Oxide is the


chemical messenger that opens veins and capillaries literally ood-
ing the muscle with massive amounts of powerful muscle building
compounds. If you review the studies on arginine or glutamine,
these amino acids were infused into the blood intravenously to
stimulate Nitric Oxide or GH (growth hormone). This is why simple
AKG chemical salts of Arginine (Arginine AKG) have proven to
be ineffective at increasing muscle size in three clinical studies.

ARGININE AKG, STUDIES SHOW YOU GOT PUNKED! DONT
FEEL BAD, THE NO A-AKG SCAM RIPPED YOUR FRIENDS
OFF TOO FOR ABOUT $75,000,000! Take home message:
three studies prove NO2-type products containing
Arginine AKG simply do NOT work. Further, Argi-
nine should be consumed with Citrulline in order
to produce nitric oxide. NO-Shotgun

contains
the sophisticated compound, Arginine Ethyl
Ester HCl (AEX

) which does not need to be


injected and is further enhanced with Citrul-
line necessary to facilitate NO production.
Along with these radical new compounds
to induce a serious Nitric Oxide Pump.
The Nitric Oxide Releasing Factor,
GBBEE (Gamma-Butyrobetaine
Ethyl Ester) was combined
along with the most power-
ful NO-inducing-Arginine
known to science called,
ALCA

(Acetyl-L-Carnitine
Arginine HCl) -- making
all other forms of Argin-
ine obsolete. Nitric Oxide
(N.O.) is the mother of all
compounds at lling the muscle
(and other body parts) with nutrient
dense, blood-engorged hard, dense
pumps! Spiking the Pump even fur-
ther, MTB Pump

(Magnesium
Tashinoate B) was combined with
the powerful compound BPOV
noted for insulin-induced pumps
and muscle fullness. And, of course, all of these cutting edge nutrients and compounds work in
concert with Arginine Ethyl Ester and Citrulline to further improve NO output and set off a bio-
chemical chain of events that aid in rapid muscle recuperation.

Theres more: NO-induced vasodilation results in killer pumps in the gym. The greater the pump
the more muscle ber trauma. The greater the muscle trauma, the more potential you have for
growth that is as long as you are using Whey and Casein Protein Hydrolysates, Leucine and
Creatine and Beta-Alanine etc. found in N.O. Shotgun and Synthesize for repair and recupera-
tion. N.O. (Nitric Oxide) over lls the muscle with nutrient dense blood to produce a NASTY
PUMP

! The physiologic response to Nitric Oxide causes extra trauma to occur when the blood-
engorged muscle is subjected to INTENSE weight training. Greater injury to the muscle is a
result of signicantly increased internal pressure (the blood-engorged pump) within the muscle
when muscle bers rub violently against each other during training. It is my personal theory that
when the vascular (veins etc.) system oods the damaged muscle with powerful and scientically
proven protein synthesis stimulating compounds like, Peptide Bonded Branched Chain Amino
Acids along with Beta-Alanine Ethyl Ester, added L-Leucine and Creatine Ethyl Ester, massive
physiologic changes in the muscle take place and muscle bers can be split and new satellite
cells can be formed to actually cause muscle HYPERPLASIA! This is where both mechanisms
of hyperplasia, HX-1 AND HX-2 take place i.e., where new satellite cells are formed and muscle
bers branch and split. Until now, gaining ungodly amounts of HX-1 and HX-2-induced muscle
occurred only by getting jacked on a poly-pharmacy of bodybuilding drugs.
And, obviously with a massive pump and the off-the chain bioactive compounds present, so to
are existing muscle cells getting larger (hypertrophy). The Shotgun/Synthesize Stack is the mus-
cle hypertrophic/hyperplasic TRIFECTA for gaining and creating new lean muscle tissue! The
NO-Shotgun

subculture will be the rst generation to be able to actually create new muscle tis-
sue (hyperplasia) without injecting massive amounts of steroids, testosterone, insulin and IGF-1!
Lastly, why have caffeine present when caffeine interferes with creatine absorption? Well studies
show that caffeine interferes with regular creatine absorption. CEX

, the rst ever Creatine Ethyl


Ester, and along with the all new Creatine Taurinate appears to be unaffected by caffeine because
of its superior ethyl esteried chemical structure stabilized with an HCl molecule. Further, Red-
lines explosive energy technology allows one to train with the insanity and intensity that initiates
the process of splitting muscle bers and causing new satellite cell formation to reach our goal of
HYPERPLASIA! Hopefully when I run into you at the gym, Arnold Classic or Olympia, youll have
your own outrageous NO-Shotgun story to share with me. If you dont believe me, the foot-
age of the NO-Shotgun

Tour at the 2007 Arnold Classic will back me up. Log on to www.
NOSHOTGUN.com and see for yourself, as the crowd counted the reps for the girl who
curled the EZ Curl bar for 301 ground-breaking repetitions after taking NO-Shotgun

!! And
then there is the guy whose bench press went up by 20 lbs after only using Shotgun

once!
This is what I mean when I say, NO-Shotgun

is the catalyst that fuels episodes of psychotic


physical intensity.
Theres another special creatine in NO-Shotgun that allowed rats to swim several hundred
percent longer than the control group who incidentally drowned. Sad but true, the take home
message here is dont let your NO-Shotgun using buddy or competitor bury you! The blood-
engorged pumps, the killer workouts, staying hard long after the gym and actually making notice-
able gains in muscularity are what you and I live for.
Jack Owoc, VPX CEO and Chief Scientic Ofcer.
4) Beta-Alanine Ethyl Ester HCl Another compound found only in NO-Shotgun and SyntheSize!
This beta amino acid is also sometimes referred to as carnosine. Research shows that it supports
lean muscle mass and can enhance muscle ber synthesis. This nutrient actually helps create
carnosine in muscle tissue. Carnosine is mainly found in muscle tissue and can help buffer
H+ (normalizing PH) so we can exercise longer and harder-basically, it helps delay fatigue.
Research shows that the higher the carnosine levels in muscle, the greater the power.
Regular carnosine is not absorbed well, so the Beta-Alanine is used to maximize carnos-
ine production in muscle tissue. A recent study showed that just 4 weeks of Beta-Alanine
supplementation signicantly increased lean muscle mass. More reps and less fatigue
equal muscle growth! Most importantly, radically improves whole body Creatine reten-
tion and muscle Carnosine, consequently, vastly improving strength, repetition capability,
endurance and lean muscle growth. The synergy of intermixing Protein Hydrolysates,
Leucine, Creatine and Beta-Alanine along with resistance training results in explosive
muscle growth! Beta-Alanine is so powerful you can actually feel it working within sec-
onds because of the unique parasalsys action of the muscles and skin.
Cutting Edge Beta-Alanine Research
-alanine stands up to even the most stringent scientic criteria because it is backed by
research and also supported by real world results in the gym. Many times, supplements may
meet research criteria but fail to work in the real world setting of a hard core gym.
What is this hot new compound and
how does it work?
-alanine is the only naturally occurring beta amino acid; however, it is not used in the bio-
synthesis of any major proteins or enzymes. It is also known as 3-aminopropionic acid. And,
in the non- -form, L-alanine is also one of the 20 amino acids most widely used in protein
synthesis, second to leucine!

-alanine works by buffering the build-up of hydrogen ions or H+. For instance, have you ever
felt that nasty burn at the end of a 400 meter sprint? Or the last rep of leg extensions? Thats a
build up of H+. Because acidic buildup occurs in all types of activity, in all muscle ber types, and
-alanine can buffer it, it makes sense that by supplementing with -alanine, your workouts be-
come better, more intense, with the end result you being bigger, faster, and stronger. Furthermore,
-alanine is used to make something called carnosine. It is actually carnosine, in your muscles,
that acts as a buffer. Carnosine is a di-peptide or two amino acids bound together found primarily
in fast-twitch muscle. Higher carnosine levels in muscle prevent a drop in pH. With H+ buffered,
you continue to sprint longer and jump higher at a high intensity (meaning with less rest time) and
simply lift heavier weights for more reps!
Dr. Jeff Stout, one of the leading researchers in the eld of sports supplements, recently tested
the effects of -alanine. He examined the effects of -alanine supplementation on Physical Work-
ing Capacity at Fatigue Threshold (PWCFT) in untrained young men. Subjects consumed either
1.6g of -alanine or sugar placebo four times per day for six days, then 3.2 grams per day for
22 days. The results revealed a signicantly greater increase in PWCFT of 14.5%. This means
greater work capacity to perform more reps with more weight and more sets per workout. Simply
put, greater muscle stress yields greater lean muscle gains.
Another study conducted in the U.K. by leading expert Roger Harris, Ph.D. examined thirteen
male subjects who supplemented with -alanine. Muscle carnosine signicantly increased by a
whopping 58.8% and 80.1% after 4 and 10 weeks of -alanine supplementation. Initially Car-
nosine was elevated 1.71 times higher in Type IIa bers and increased equally in both Type I and
IIa bers. Four weeks of -alanine supplementation resulted in a signicant increase in exercise
performance measured as total work performance. What happens when you combine creatine
and -alanine? A study just hot off the press done at the College of New Jersey studied the
effects of creatine and creatine plus -alanine on strength, power, body composition, and endo-
crine changes during a 10-wk resistance training program in collegiate football players. Thirty-
three male subjects were randomly assigned to either a placebo (P), creatine (C), or creatine plus
-alanine (CA) group. The dosage taken was 10.5 g/d of creatine monohydrate and 3.2 g/d of
-alanine. During each testing session subjects were assessed for maximum bench press and
squat strength, power (Wingate anaerobic power test, 20-jump test), and body composition.
Researchers discovered that creatine plus -alanine supplementation had the greatest effect on
lean tissue growth and reduced body fat composition.
Hyperplasia the splitting of muscle bers
to form new muscle!
Now that you realize that creatine and -alanine are an awesome duo, heres more information
thatll get you pumped, literally! (2) If you paid attention in cell biology class (okay, Im one of a
few geeks to actually take cell biology), youd know that satellite cells are cells that basically sit on
top of muscle bers or cells. When you damage your muscle bers, you turn on these satellite
cells. What happens to the satellite cells? Well for one, satellite cells help repair damaged muscle
bers. Thats good news for anyone who exercises. Number two, satellite cells can contribute
to increased muscle ber mass or size. And number three, perhaps in rare instances, satellite
cells can fuse and form new muscle bers known as muscle ber hyperplasia. Guess what? A
recent study showed that creatine supplementation in combination with strength training ampli-
es the training-induced increase in satellite cell number and myonuclei concentration in human
skeletal muscle bers, thereby allowing an enhanced muscle ber growth in response to strength
training.(3) So with -alanine, you have a supplement that will help you work out harder because
of its buffering ability (via carnosine); and when combined with creatine, this super stack found
in SyntheSize and Shotgun increases stored energy and whole body creatine retention, activates
satellite cells and turns on genes that ultimately result in increased muscle protein synthesis.
The data suggests that the timing of N.O. Shotgun and Synthesize is of utmost importance. -
alanine should be taken in divided doses throughout the day because there is a slight ushing
and tingling effect with high doses called paraesthesia. This is resolved by taking smaller doses
more frequently throughout the day. The second reason for taking multiple doses is to ensure the
constant presence of -alanine which helps drive it into the muscle cell were it synthesizes into
carnosine. Therefore, your pre-workout anabolic shake should consist of N.O. Shotgun which
contains the maximum tolerable amount of -alanine and your stimulant-free post-workout ana-
bolic SyntheSize shake which also contains a second dose of the maximum tolerable amount of
-alanine for some major muscle mass building effects.

metabolism also allows you to continually access stored body fat to use as energy. The end result
of this Zero Impact Diet Strategy is a ripped and muscular physique!
Making Carbohydrates Obsolete
In assembling the pieces of the scientic puzzle, the Shotgun/SyntheSize Stack was formulated
to mimic the insulin response generated by high glycemic (high GI) carbs (i.e. sugar) to activate
beta-cells and stimulate whole body creatine retention! One of the solutions was to use bis-
Maltalato Oxo-Vanadium (BPOV) which is a potent form of chemically altered Vanadium that
makes beta-cells super responsive to insulin. Additionally, Beta-Alanine was employed to stimu-
late research-proven whole-body creatine retention! In fact, these two compounds are far more
effective than sugar-laden N.O. supplements without the unwanted carb-induced side effects
- water retention, bloating, and an increase in body fat. You train intensely to get lean, hard, and
pumped with crisp, water-free muscle separation, and this is where the sugar free Shotgun/Syn-
theSize Stack out-performs the competition!
Research has proven that the cutting-edge compounds contained in the Shotgun/SyntheSize
Stack work synergistically to effectively stimulate insulin secretion. VPX scientists used a more
scientic carb-free approach to achieve greater receptiveness of the beta-cells by taking advan-
tage of the efcient insulin spiking abilities of protein hydrolysates and the potent anabolic amino
acid, L-Leucine. When post-exercise insulin is increased in the presence of protein hydrolysates
and leucine, massive amounts of muscle building amino acids ood the blood resulting in signi-
cant net protein being deposited into muscle. Finally, the ingestion of creatine in conjunction with
proteins and high-GI carbs is no longer required to stimulate whole-body creatine retention! The
Shotgun/SyntheSize Stack re-wrote cutting edge carb-free muscle science.
Owocs Research-Proven 10-Compound-Protocol to
Ignite Synthesis of Lean Muscle
1) Whey and Casein Protein Hydrolysates: these extraordinary proteins increase insulin produc-
tion by 110% greater than carbs alone and increase glycogen synthesis by 35%. Whey and
Casein Protein Hydrolysates are far superior to intact proteins such as whey, casein and egg
for promoting nitrogen utilization and muscle growth. The powerful lean muscle building effect
occurs after consuming Protein Hydrolysates prior to, during and after training. These special-
ized peptides dump into the blood rapidly causing super high blood levels of amino acids and
increased production of the powerful anabolic hormone, insulin. These two physiological events
result in a potent anabolic (muscle building) response in the body. Shotgun and Synthesize both
contain copious amounts of Whey and Casein Protein Hydrolysates. These potent protein frac-
tions are comprised of 22% Glutamine Peptide, 41% total peptide bonded Essential Amino Acids
(EAAs) and 21% peptide bonded BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids)! This is important be-
cause muscle consists of 78% glutamine while BCAAs and EAAs are the most potent research-
proven muscle building amino acids.
2) L-Leucine intermixed with Protein Hydrolysates has an even greater effect on insulin produc-
tion and muscle growth than Protein Hydrolysates alone. Shotgun and Synthesize are rich in
added free form L-Leucine and Leucine Peptides.
3) Cutting Edge High Tech Creatines: It is well documented research that insulin transports Cre-
atine into muscle tissue. Further, Creatine combined with protein increases creatine retention
within the muscle cell and results in increased lean muscle mass. More insulin means more cre-
atine = greater muscle mass, quicker recovery and increased strength! Shotgun and Synthesize
contain the most anabolic proteins known to man and several cutting edge high tech Creatines
such as, Creatine Taurinate that all exert specialized effects in promoting lean muscle growth,
strength and ATP Resynthesis! Creatine Ethyl Ester HCl (CEX

) was another cutting edge com-


pound brought rst to the market by VPX. We know that creatine is the most proven and po-
tent supplement to increase lean muscle mass and strength and the specic CEX form takes
creatine to a whole new level! CEX

is a membrane permeable form of creatine ethyl ester that


can enter muscle cells without bothering with the regular creatine transporters like sugar etc. This
means up to 98% can enter the muscle compared to regular creatine where only 4% makes it into
the muscle! CEX

does not cause bloating, cramping, or stomach discomfort because it doesnt


sit in the stomach - it gets into muscle tissue fast to support the more production of ATP for mas-
sive intra-cellular volumization, muscle size, power, and strength Well continue to explore our
innovative 10-Compound-Protocol matrix but rst, it is important that you become familiar with the
science of exponential muscle growth in regard to training and supplementation:
The Science of Exponential Muscle Growth
The Training/Supplementation Connection
There are three ways muscles can get larger. The rst and most limiting is called muscle Hyper-
trophy. This is where you practically kill yourself in the gym to force your genetically pre-existing
amount of muscle to get larger in size. Most of us struggle with our God given genetics; however,
the great news is that Hyperplasia can level the playing eld between the genetically challenged
and the genetically gifted!
Hyperplasia occurs when existing muscle actually forms new muscle bers and can occur by
two different mechanisms. The rst is actual ber division resulting in splitting or branching of
existing muscle to form more muscle bers. Hyperplasia X-1 (HX-1) occurs during muscle trau-
ma such as heavy negative reps and high volume/high intensity training. Redlines

unparal-
leled energy technology contained in NO-Shotgun

is the driving force behind the intensity you


need to trigger HX-1-induced muscle growth. Ill get real with you, without insanely attacking
the weights, HX-1 just isnt going to freakin happen. Redlines

the catalyst that fuels episodes


of psychotic physical intensity!
Hyperplasia X-2 or HX-2 is new muscle ber that forms when muscle ber pre-
cursor cells known as satellite cells are stimulated. This is where the NO-
Shotgun

matrix shines a potent biochemical light. Nitric Oxide is the


chemical messenger that opens veins and capillaries literally ood-
ing the muscle with massive amounts of powerful muscle building
compounds. If you review the studies on arginine or glutamine,
these amino acids were infused into the blood intravenously to
stimulate Nitric Oxide or GH (growth hormone). This is why simple
AKG chemical salts of Arginine (Arginine AKG) have proven to
be ineffective at increasing muscle size in three clinical studies.
YES, IF YOU PURCHASED ANY NO2-TYPE PRODUCT WITH
ARGININE AKG, STUDIES SHOW YOU GOT PUNKED! DONT
FEEL BAD, THE NO A-AKG SCAM RIPPED YOUR FRIENDS
OFF TOO FOR ABOUT $75,000,000! Take home message:
three studies prove NO2-type products containing
Arginine AKG simply do NOT work. Further, Argi-
nine should be consumed with Citrulline in order
to produce nitric oxide. NO-Shotgun

contains
the sophisticated compound, Arginine Ethyl
Ester HCl (AEX

) which does not need to be


injected and is further enhanced with Citrul-
line necessary to facilitate NO production.
Along with these radical new compounds
to induce a serious Nitric Oxide Pump.
The Nitric Oxide Releasing Factor,
GBBEE (Gamma-Butyrobetaine
Ethyl Ester) was combined
along with the most power-
ful NO-inducing-Arginine
known to science called,
ALCA

(Acetyl-L-Carnitine
Arginine HCl) -- making
all other forms of Argin-
ine obsolete. Nitric Oxide
(N.O.) is the mother of all
compounds at lling the muscle
(and other body parts) with nutrient
dense, blood-engorged hard, dense
pumps! Spiking the Pump even fur-
ther, MTB Pump

(Magnesium
Tashinoate B) was combined with
the powerful compound BPOV
noted for insulin-induced pumps
and muscle fullness. And, of course, all of these cutting edge nutrients and compounds work in
concert with Arginine Ethyl Ester and Citrulline to further improve NO output and set off a bio-
chemical chain of events that aid in rapid muscle recuperation.

Theres more: NO-induced vasodilation results in killer pumps in the gym. The greater the pump
the more muscle ber trauma. The greater the muscle trauma, the more potential you have for
growth that is as long as you are using Whey and Casein Protein Hydrolysates, Leucine and
Creatine and Beta-Alanine etc. found in N.O. Shotgun and Synthesize for repair and recupera-
tion. N.O. (Nitric Oxide) over lls the muscle with nutrient dense blood to produce a NASTY
PUMP

! The physiologic response to Nitric Oxide causes extra trauma to occur when the blood-
engorged muscle is subjected to INTENSE weight training. Greater injury to the muscle is a
result of signicantly increased internal pressure (the blood-engorged pump) within the muscle
when muscle bers rub violently against each other during training. It is my personal theory that
when the vascular (veins etc.) system oods the damaged muscle with powerful and scientically
proven protein synthesis stimulating compounds like, Peptide Bonded Branched Chain Amino
Acids along with Beta-Alanine Ethyl Ester, added L-Leucine and Creatine Ethyl Ester, massive
physiologic changes in the muscle take place and muscle bers can be split and new satellite
cells can be formed to actually cause muscle HYPERPLASIA! This is where both mechanisms
of hyperplasia, HX-1 AND HX-2 take place i.e., where new satellite cells are formed and muscle
bers branch and split. Until now, gaining ungodly amounts of HX-1 and HX-2-induced muscle
occurred only by getting jacked on a poly-pharmacy of bodybuilding drugs.
And, obviously with a massive pump and the off-the chain bioactive compounds present, so to
are existing muscle cells getting larger (hypertrophy). The Shotgun/Synthesize Stack is the mus-
cle hypertrophic/hyperplasic TRIFECTA for gaining and creating new lean muscle tissue! The
NO-Shotgun

subculture will be the rst generation to be able to actually create new muscle tis-
sue (hyperplasia) without injecting massive amounts of steroids, testosterone, insulin and IGF-1!
Lastly, why have caffeine present when caffeine interferes with creatine absorption? Well studies
show that caffeine interferes with regular creatine absorption. CEX

, the rst ever Creatine Ethyl


Ester, and along with the all new Creatine Taurinate appears to be unaffected by caffeine because
of its superior ethyl esteried chemical structure stabilized with an HCl molecule. Further, Red-
lines explosive energy technology allows one to train with the insanity and intensity that initiates
the process of splitting muscle bers and causing new satellite cell formation to reach our goal of
HYPERPLASIA! Hopefully when I run into you at the gym, Arnold Classic or Olympia, youll have
your own outrageous NO-Shotgun story to share with me. If you dont believe me, the foot-
age of the NO-Shotgun

Tour at the 2007 Arnold Classic will back me up. Log on to www.
NOSHOTGUN.com and see for yourself, as the crowd counted the reps for the girl who
curled the EZ Curl bar for 301 ground-breaking repetitions after taking NO-Shotgun

!! And
then there is the guy whose bench press went up by 20 lbs after only using Shotgun

once!
This is what I mean when I say, NO-Shotgun

is the catalyst that fuels episodes of psychotic


physical intensity.
Theres another special creatine in NO-Shotgun that allowed rats to swim several hundred
percent longer than the control group who incidentally drowned. Sad but true, the take home
message here is dont let your NO-Shotgun using buddy or competitor bury you! The blood-
engorged pumps, the killer workouts, staying hard long after the gym and actually making notice-
able gains in muscularity are what you and I live for.
Jack Owoc, VPX CEO and Chief Scientic Ofcer.
4) Beta-Alanine Ethyl Ester HCl Another compound found only in NO-Shotgun and SyntheSize!
This beta amino acid is also sometimes referred to as carnosine. Research shows that it supports
lean muscle mass and can enhance muscle ber synthesis. This nutrient actually helps create
carnosine in muscle tissue. Carnosine is mainly found in muscle tissue and can help buffer
H+ (normalizing PH) so we can exercise longer and harder-basically, it helps delay fatigue.
Research shows that the higher the carnosine levels in muscle, the greater the power.
Regular carnosine is not absorbed well, so the Beta-Alanine is used to maximize carnos-
ine production in muscle tissue. A recent study showed that just 4 weeks of Beta-Alanine
supplementation signicantly increased lean muscle mass. More reps and less fatigue
equal muscle growth! Most importantly, radically improves whole body Creatine reten-
tion and muscle Carnosine, consequently, vastly improving strength, repetition capability,
endurance and lean muscle growth. The synergy of intermixing Protein Hydrolysates,
Leucine, Creatine and Beta-Alanine along with resistance training results in explosive
muscle growth! Beta-Alanine is so powerful you can actually feel it working within sec-
onds because of the unique parasalsys action of the muscles and skin.
Cutting Edge Beta-Alanine Research
-alanine stands up to even the most stringent scientic criteria because it is backed by
research and also supported by real world results in the gym. Many times, supplements may
meet research criteria but fail to work in the real world setting of a hard core gym.
What is this hot new compound and
how does it work?
-alanine is the only naturally occurring beta amino acid; however, it is not used in the bio-
synthesis of any major proteins or enzymes. It is also known as 3-aminopropionic acid. And,
in the non- -form, L-alanine is also one of the 20 amino acids most widely used in protein
synthesis, second to leucine!

-alanine works by buffering the build-up of hydrogen ions or H+. For instance, have you ever
felt that nasty burn at the end of a 400 meter sprint? Or the last rep of leg extensions? Thats a
build up of H+. Because acidic buildup occurs in all types of activity, in all muscle ber types, and
-alanine can buffer it, it makes sense that by supplementing with -alanine, your workouts be-
come better, more intense, with the end result you being bigger, faster, and stronger. Furthermore,
-alanine is used to make something called carnosine. It is actually carnosine, in your muscles,
that acts as a buffer. Carnosine is a di-peptide or two amino acids bound together found primarily
in fast-twitch muscle. Higher carnosine levels in muscle prevent a drop in pH. With H+ buffered,
you continue to sprint longer and jump higher at a high intensity (meaning with less rest time) and
simply lift heavier weights for more reps!
Dr. Jeff Stout, one of the leading researchers in the eld of sports supplements, recently tested
the effects of -alanine. He examined the effects of -alanine supplementation on Physical Work-
ing Capacity at Fatigue Threshold (PWCFT) in untrained young men. Subjects consumed either
1.6g of -alanine or sugar placebo four times per day for six days, then 3.2 grams per day for
22 days. The results revealed a signicantly greater increase in PWCFT of 14.5%. This means
greater work capacity to perform more reps with more weight and more sets per workout. Simply
put, greater muscle stress yields greater lean muscle gains.
Another study conducted in the U.K. by leading expert Roger Harris, Ph.D. examined thirteen
male subjects who supplemented with -alanine. Muscle carnosine signicantly increased by a
whopping 58.8% and 80.1% after 4 and 10 weeks of -alanine supplementation. Initially Car-
nosine was elevated 1.71 times higher in Type IIa bers and increased equally in both Type I and
IIa bers. Four weeks of -alanine supplementation resulted in a signicant increase in exercise
performance measured as total work performance. What happens when you combine creatine
and -alanine? A study just hot off the press done at the College of New Jersey studied the
effects of creatine and creatine plus -alanine on strength, power, body composition, and endo-
crine changes during a 10-wk resistance training program in collegiate football players. Thirty-
three male subjects were randomly assigned to either a placebo (P), creatine (C), or creatine plus
-alanine (CA) group. The dosage taken was 10.5 g/d of creatine monohydrate and 3.2 g/d of
-alanine. During each testing session subjects were assessed for maximum bench press and
squat strength, power (Wingate anaerobic power test, 20-jump test), and body composition.
Researchers discovered that creatine plus -alanine supplementation had the greatest effect on
lean tissue growth and reduced body fat composition.
Hyperplasia the splitting of muscle bers
to form new muscle!
Now that you realize that creatine and -alanine are an awesome duo, heres more information
thatll get you pumped, literally! (2) If you paid attention in cell biology class (okay, Im one of a
few geeks to actually take cell biology), youd know that satellite cells are cells that basically sit on
top of muscle bers or cells. When you damage your muscle bers, you turn on these satellite
cells. What happens to the satellite cells? Well for one, satellite cells help repair damaged muscle
bers. Thats good news for anyone who exercises. Number two, satellite cells can contribute
to increased muscle ber mass or size. And number three, perhaps in rare instances, satellite
cells can fuse and form new muscle bers known as muscle ber hyperplasia. Guess what? A
recent study showed that creatine supplementation in combination with strength training ampli-
es the training-induced increase in satellite cell number and myonuclei concentration in human
skeletal muscle bers, thereby allowing an enhanced muscle ber growth in response to strength
training.(3) So with -alanine, you have a supplement that will help you work out harder because
of its buffering ability (via carnosine); and when combined with creatine, this super stack found
in SyntheSize and Shotgun increases stored energy and whole body creatine retention, activates
satellite cells and turns on genes that ultimately result in increased muscle protein synthesis.
The data suggests that the timing of N.O. Shotgun and Synthesize is of utmost importance. -
alanine should be taken in divided doses throughout the day because there is a slight ushing
and tingling effect with high doses called paraesthesia. This is resolved by taking smaller doses
more frequently throughout the day. The second reason for taking multiple doses is to ensure the
constant presence of -alanine which helps drive it into the muscle cell were it synthesizes into
carnosine. Therefore, your pre-workout anabolic shake should consist of N.O. Shotgun which
contains the maximum tolerable amount of -alanine and your stimulant-free post-workout ana-
bolic SyntheSize shake which also contains a second dose of the maximum tolerable amount of
-alanine for some major muscle mass building effects.

protein synthesizing amino acids. BCAAs have been shown to promote lean muscle mass by
increasing protein synthesis and nitrogen retention in muscle tissue. Studies have shown that
subjects who consume BCAAs while dieting have greater levels of lean muscle mass retention.
And, another study showed that BCAA consumption had a powerful nutrient partitioning effect
resulting in rapid fat loss in the abdominal and thigh regions, two areas of concern for many men
and women in regards to fat loss. Consequently, this makes BCAAEX

/ NO-Shotgun

a prime
choice for contest prep or any other intense dieting. NO-Shotgun

also contains the potent Argi-


nase enzyme inhibitor, L-Nor Valine! This novel Nor Branched Chain Ethyl Ester Amino maximizes
the active life of the AEX

(Arginine Ethyl Ester) by preventing the body from destroying AEX

and
allows it to increase GH and Nitric Oxide for extended periods of time.
6) 22% Peptide Bonded Glutamine - This powerful amino acid is the most abundant amino acid
found in human muscle and plasma, thus, addressing the major Glutamine absorption problem
by allowing it to be maximally absorbed - as much as 80% of regular L-glutamine cannot be
absorbed by the gut. L-glutamine can help increase muscle fullness, increase protein synthesis
(the making of muscle), and decrease catabolism (the breakdown of protein). It can also boost
immune function, boost GH levels, enhance glycogen re-synthesis. New research shows glu-
tamine is highly correlated with glutathione (the muscles most powerful antioxidant) and can help
protect muscles from damage. According to some very interesting research out of the Swedish
University of Agricultural Sciences, glutamine concentration is 10% higher in type II muscle bers
vs. VA I bers. Type II muscle bers have a large disposition for growth and are used mainly in
weight training. After exercise, the same researchers showed a 45% decrease in glutamine in
both ber types. This is why di- and tri-peptide boded Glutamine is critical for lean muscle growth
and serious pumps.
7) BPOV (bis-Maltalato Oxo-Vanadium) increases the beta cells sensitivity and responsiveness
to insulin. This is hugely important because the kinetics and dynamics of insulin dictate that it is
not how much you produce, but more importantly, how insulin responsive or efcient your body
utilizes insulin to shuttle Creatine, Beta-alanine, Leucine and other muscle energetic compounds
into the muscle cell to manufacture more lean muscle. Sixty seven percent (67%) of Americans
are insulin resistant to some degree. If you have any degree of insulin resistance, your ability
to use insulin is compromised. Therefore, it doesnt really matter how much insulin your body
releases because you are resistant to insulins ability to build muscle (anabolism). Less overall
carbohydrate consumption (glycemic load) and elimination of high glycemic index dietary carbs
along with higher protein intake, BPOV supplementation and increasing muscle mass via resis-
tant training are all factors that increase insulin sensitivity and utilization.
8) Arginine Ethyl Ester HCl or AEX

- mechanism of action is boosting nitric oxide (NO) produc-


tion which amplies the effects of all muscle building compounds. Boosting nitric oxide in muscle
tissue can have many anabolic effects including increased nutrient transport and vasodilation
(increased blood ow which leads to massive muscle pumps!). Arginine can even boost natural
Growth Hormone (GH) levels as seen in a study published in the journal, Medicine and Science in
Sports and Exercise. A published study conducted at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore showed that two
weeks of arginine supplementation in healthy, older individuals increased serum IGF-1 (insulin-
like growth factor) levels and created an improved and positive nitrogen balance (creating a more
anabolic state for growth). DONT BE FOOLEDTHIS IS NOT A SIMPLE CHEMICAL SALT
LIKE OLD SCHOOL ARGININE AKG, this is a powerful, stabilized Arginine Ester that is highly
bioactive. Think about it, would you want an outdated six year old computer or the latest version?
Well, AEX

is the latest and greatest! If that wasnt potent enough, NO-Shotgun

also contains
citrulline, a compound that MUST be used in conjunction with Arginine to cause the
9) N.O. + Pumping Agents: Finally, we added some radical new compounds to induce a seri -
ous Nitric Oxide Pump. The Nitric Oxide Releasing Factor, GBBEE (Gamma-Butyrobetaine
Ethyl Ester) was combined along with the most powerful NO-inducing-Arginine known to sci-
ence called, ALCA

(Acetyl-L-Carnitine Arginine HCl) - making all other forms of Arginine


obsolete. Nitric Oxide (N.O.) is the mother of all compounds at lling the muscle (and other
body parts) with nutrient dense, blood-engorged hard, dense pumps! Spiking the Pump even
further, MTB Pump

(Magnesium Tashinoate B) was combined with the powerful compound


BPOV noted for insulin-induced pumps and muscle fullness. And, of course, all of these cut-
ting edge nutrients and compounds work in concert to set off a biochemical chain of events
that aid in rapid muscle recuperation.
10) Redlines

A Special Message from Jack Owoc, VPX CEO & Chief Scientc Ofcer,
At VPX, we take the latest in science and marry it to the best of r eal-world experience. With that
dynamic combination, VPX has set a new standard by breaking into uncharted scientic ground
by introducing NO-Shotgun! NO-Shotgun takes advantage of the potent satellite stimulating ef-
fects of creatine with the hydrogen ion buffering capacity of -alanine. Furthermore, NO-Shotgun
contains the key amino acids that are engineered with Ethyl Ester pharmaceutical delivery en-
hancements. This special and highly advanced EX technology shuttles all NO-Shotgun com-
pounds across the muscle cell membrane where they can cause explosive growth! We know that
creatine is the most proven and potent supplement to increase lean muscle mass and strength.
This is why Shotgun contains creatine, but not just any old-school creatine. NO-Shotgun potent
matrix contains Creatine Ethyl Ester HCl (CEX) the most powerful creatine known to man. And,
CEX does not cause bloating, cramping, or stomach discomfort because it doesnt sit in the
stomach - it gets into muscle tissue fast to support the more production of ATP for massive
intra-cellular volumization, muscle size, power, and strength! Furthermore, wed added precise
amounts of Beta-Alanine Ethyl Ester HCl (BAEX). This beta amino acid is also sometimes referred
to as carnosine. Research shows that it supports lean muscle mass and can enhance muscle
ber synthesis. This nutrient actually helps create carnosine in muscle tissue. Carnosine is mainly
found in muscle tissue and can help buffer H+ (normalizing PH) so we can exercise longer and
harder with insane intensity. More reps and less fatigue equal increased muscle growth! From
the study discussed above, we know that combining even regular creatine and Beta-Alanine re-
sults in satellite muscle cell division along with protein synthesis huge news because these are
direct indicators of muscle hyperplasia! However, NO-Shotgun contains the super potent CEX
creatine and the innitely more powerful type of -alanine called, Beta-Alanine Ethyl Ester! These
two ingredients are only the tip of a very huge biochemical iceberg regarding the star studded
matrix of ingredients contained in the Worlds Most Potent Muscle Building NO-Shotgun!

tricks

IFBBProbodybuilder
What is the best way to
build round delts?
To build nice big round deltoids, you
must hit the shoulders from a variety of
angles. There are three heads on the del-
toid muscle that must be attacked. The
front head, the side head, and the rear
head of the deltoid. Most of your press-
ing movements
are going to hit
your front and
side head indi-
rectly depending
on where you
lower and raise
the bar or dumb-
ell. Because of
this, I usually
like to start with
1 or 2 pressing
movements. This
gets the deltoid
properly warmed
up and these
exercises are
easier to handle
heavier weights
for building size.
Examples include
military press
machine, dumb-
ell shoulder press, and/or front barbell
shoulder presses (*And occassionally
behind the neck presses- but be carefull
with behind the neck presses because
they may lead to shoulder injury (rota-
tor cuff) if done to frequently of with to
much weight). Now that the shoulder
is warm and swelled with blood we can
isolate the individual heads with lateral
movements. Use front laterals for the
front head, side laterals for the side head,
and reverse fyes for rear delts. I like to
do atleast to pressing movements to start
my shoulder routine followed by two
deltoid head isolation exercises. And I
vary the combination of the later each
workout. I like to do - set each exer-
cise and keep my reps between and 1.
As your shoulder and pecs get stronger a
lot of stress is placed on the rotator cuff.
So, I fnish my shoulder workout with 2-
sets of external/ internal rotation, low
weight, 12-1 reps.
How can I
strengthen
the muscles
in my lower
back?

The muscles in he
lower back you
are referring to are
called erectors.
They are actually a
very small muscle
group. Because
of this, I typically
advice people to
use minimal weight
when training this
area. In alot of
cases bodyweight
is ample enough
weight to strengthen the erectors. Exer-
cises of choice include hyperextensions,
and good mornings. Deadlifts also hit
the area indirectly and more weight can
be used because so many other muscles
are also called upon during this exer-
cise like quads,hams,glutes,arms, and
traps. Also, remember that some times
erectors muscle are weak due to weak
abdominals muscle. So, when training
the low back remember to throw in some
crunches and reverse crunches to balance
out these antogonist muscle groups.

Meltdown by VPX is the most profound scientific fat loss innovation of

Meltdown will radically increase energy levels, take
mental acuity and alertness into the stratosphere and

ftness for her

etting physically ft is like getting an education.
Instead of the Rs of reading, writing and rith-
matic, ftness demands R-R-O-P
Lets face it, too many people join ftness centers
thinking they can magically exercise themselves into
shape. We all know that there is exercise the kind
folks quickly abandon without any positive results - and
THERE IS EXERCISE the type that gradually enhances
every dynamic of your life mental, emotional, sexual,
and physical.
Exercise is critical in weight loss and weight control.
On a day-to-day basis, expending only as many calories
as you take in will help maintain fairly constant body
weight, while taking in more or fewer calories than you
burn up through exercise and the activities of daily living
will result in weight gain or loss.
For those committed to weight loss, increased
aerobic exercise walking, running, swimming, cycling
burns body fat provided your caloric intake remains
the same. However, if you consume even 100 calories
a day more than your body needs thats less than one
12-ounce can of Coke-you will gain approximately 10
pounds a year. WOW!
Thats why an effective
combination of exercise and diet
or diet and exercise is critical to
getting into shape.
Remember, muscle burns
additional calories and, when
combined with aerobic (cardio-
vascular) and weight training,
helps take fat-based weight off
and keep it off. Dont let the
gym or bathroom scale fool you
though. As you burn off fat and
gain muscle your weight may not
change as much or as quickly as
you might plan. Dont get hung
up on a number.
In addition to helping you
control your weight, 0-0 min-
utes of physical activity each day
can help reduce stress, increase
energy, and improve sleep. It
also helps in decreasing risks of

heart disease, colon cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, and
high blood pressure. The key, of course, is fnding the
exercise(s) just right for you, developing a sensible ap-
proach to training, and starting out at a safe and steady
rate.
Depending on your age and physical condition (including
any possibility of pregnancy), theres always a critical
caution: check with your physician. Begin with 10 min-
utes of light exercise then work your way up and follow
these simple tips:
Make it fun. Thats why God created iPods, televi-
sions screens in front of treadmills and stationary bikes,
and made those plastic things that you can put a book
on while using an elliptical machine. Or, try walking
at the mall leave your credit cards at home and dont
window-shop.
Its your time. Do something you enjoy. If you dont,
you will quickly join the wouldda-shouldda-couldda
club of out-of-shape dropouts. Try zumba or playing
tennis, beach-walking or spinning (but start out slowly
and with brief periods)
Get a partner Chose someone you will feel guilty
about leaving stranded because you didnt show up- some-
one who will encourage and support you.
Find the time thats best for you Try not to ex-
ercise too soon after eating or too close to bedtime. Let
your body tell you what time is best for you morning,
afternoon or evening.
Give yourself time It may take a few weeks to
begin to feel and see results. This is NOT a sprintits
a marathon!

Selecting the right protein powder for
your body
Before deciding on a protein powder for your body,
here are just a few tips to help you select one of the
thousands of different protein powders on the market
today.
Whey, Casein and Soy are some of the most popular....
so lets take a look at these three shall we.
Here is a little background on the three:
Whey protein makes up 20% of total milk protein.
Whey is recognized for its excellent amino acid profle,
high cysteine content, rapid
digestion, and interesting va-
riety of peptides.
Casein protein makes
up 0% of total milk protein.
Casein is recognized for its
excellent amino acid profle,
slow digestion and interest-
ing variety of peptides. Since
casein is slowly digested into
your bloodstream, dont use
it during workouts or after
workouts you need a fast
absorbing protein at these
times.
Soy protein is the
most controversial of all
protein types. While the
soy groupies have gone to great lengths to label soy as
a super food with magical effects, there is also a good
amount of research that suggests soy protein may be
contraindicated in many situations. Because of all the
confusion.
*Protein Blends are generally a combination of
several types of protein blends such as whey protein
concentrate, whey protein isolate, egg protein, casein
protein, and soy protein.
What do the different types of protein
actually do for you?
Whey Protein:
Whey protein is a pure, natural, high quality protein
from cows milk. It is a rich source of the essential
amino acids needed on a daily basis by the body. In its
purest form, as whey protein isolate, it contains little to
no fat, lactose or cholesterol.
Whey protein is an excellent protein choice for
individuals of all ages. It provides a number of benefts
in areas including sports nutrition, weight manage-
ment, immune support, bone health, and general well-
ness. New information on the health benefts of whey

protein continues to become available as researchers
discover new applications for both whey protein and its
unique individual protein components.
Casein Protein:
Casein protein is derived from milk products. In fact,
after casein protein curdles during the cheese making
process, it is collected and processed into supplemental
form. The quality of casein is the most imperative is-
sue surrounding this supplement. The grade of casein
protein can be very high or very low. The casein protein
that is low in quality is often labeled as caseinate or
calcium caseinate. Caseinate is collected before the
protein has curdled which makes it a
low end product.
Casein protein is less expensive
than most protein products because it is
the least refned of all the milk protein
supplements. The effects of not be-
ing extra refned is that it moves more
slowly throughout the system. This al-
lows for a higher absorption rate of the
amino acids and the effects to be present
longer. This basically means that the pro-
tein is capable of providing a full effect
when using it as a meal replacement. In
fact, it is among the best choices for meal
replacements for that very reason. It is
capable of sustaining the body for longer
periods of time in between meals.
Soy Protein:
Isofavones in soy foods may inhibit the breakdown of
bones. Daidzein, a type of isofavone, is actually very
similar to the drug iprifavone, which is used through-
out Europe and Asia to treat osteoporosis. One compel-
ling study completed by Erdman in 1 focused on
post-menopausal women who consumed 0 grams of
isolated soy protein daily for months. Researchers
found that these subjects signifcantly increased bone
mineral density as compared to the controls. Another
study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine in
September 200 also found that intake of soy food was
associated with a signifcantly lower risk of fracture,
particularly among early post-menopausal women.
In theory most of your protein should come from
meat, fsh, poultry and eggs. However welcome to the
real world, with a busy schedule on the run constantly
getting all your protein from real food is not practical.
My suggestion when trying to get in six meals a day
have three of them come from your brand of protein
shake.....look to get in at least 1 gram of protein per
pound of body weight.

11 years of
pure pa ssion
E
leven years is a long time. Its more
than a decade. During a span of
that length so much can happen.
So much can take place. The world is in
constant fux. Not much stays the same.
Fashion trends come and go. Waistlines
go down. Waistlines go up. Pant-legs go
in. Pant-legs go out. Presidentseven
those who serve more than one term--
come and go. Poll numbers go up. Poll
numbers go down. Relationships begin
and end and begin again. Sitcoms begin
and end and begin again. Wars begin and
end and begin again. People come and
go, and sometimes they even die. De-
spite all that has changed and all that has
come and gone over these past 11 years,
one thing has remained a constant.
From its humble beginnings as a
newsletter in 1, Natural Muscle has
grown to become a frst class ftness
publication enjoyed by thousands na-
tionwide. At the helm is its founder and
publisher, Debbie Baigrie, whose pure
passion has been the driving force that
has made the magazine what it is today.
Ford has nothing on Natural Muscle.
Built on pure passion its that passion
that makes Natural Muscle tough.
Its that passion that is the reason
why, after a whopping 11 years, its still
standing. Passion is a powerful thing.
Passion applied is even more powerful.
Debbie has taken her passion, her vi-
sion, and her love of the ftness industry,
and created a winning formula. She has
taken bold chances, to entertain, educate,
and captivate her audience. The readers
best interest is squarely at the heart of
each issue she produces. At this juncture,
to still be alive and thriving is quite an
accomplishment. We can all take a page
out of her passion play book and apply it
to our own.
PZS POINTERS TO APPLYING
PURE PASSION
Like the comfort of a blankie or an
old shoeEver notice how we get at-
tached to items or objects like that old
pair of sneakers, that ripped up sweat
shirt, or those faded jeans that have long
seen their better day? Just as a baby
seeks out and holds onto his blankie for
comfort and solace, we, human beings,
like familiarity and have a certain affn-
ity for what we have learned to know
and trust. Natural Muscle has become
that familiar friend we have
come to expect on a regular
basis. There is just something
special about it that is hard to
fully explain. We rely on it to
be there and for all of the past
eleven years it has been.
Practice makes perfectThe longer
we keep at something the better the
chance we have at improving. Its a
simple concept but diffcult to sustain.
The more we exercise the better the
shape and condition of our body. When
we stop it doesnt take long for that great
shape to leave us and the hard work to
disappear. Trace any accomplishment
to its origin and youll see a trail of trial
and error. For those who have achieved
at the highest levels of their craft, it is
not without practice, practice, and more
practice. Natural Muscle has developed
and evolved and remains on that upward
path. Although the state of perfection
is relative and in the eye of the be-
holderwe can strive, nonetheless, for
a more perfect outcome. It is through a
concerted commitment to excellence that
our goals become a reality.
Finding a way-- Its no secret many
business ventures fail. Most fail in the
initial
stages.
Some
last a little longer
than eventually fnd a
way to go under. The
magazine industry is
no exception. Even
with the talent, success, and notoriety
of a John F. Kennedy Jr., the magazine,
George, which he co-founded before he
died, could not survive. Natural Muscle
has survived over the years for a number
of reasons. The most important being
the determination of its publisher to fnd
a way. She faces down the challenges
that arise, month-in and month-out, and
meets them head-on. She turns those
lemons into lemonade time and again
and produces a product the readers
value, depend upon, and enjoy.
Follow the leaderWhen youre look-
ing for the formula to success, begin the
search by looking to successful people.
Look to those who have come before
you. Analyze and evaluate what they
have done and how they have gone about
it. They have found a way to apply win-
ning principles to their lives. Find out
what principles make sense for your
life and zero in on them. The wheel has
already been invented. There is no need
to waste time reinventing the same one.
Your calling may be to develop a new
and improved, bigger or better wheel.
Your calling may be to use that wheel
in a way no man has even thought to
use. Your calling may be to
change the world with your
wheel. From the beginning
of time there have been
stand outs among the crowd.
They have come from all
cultures in all shapes and
sizes. They still walk among
us today and continue to
leave their imprint. We can
learn from those individuals
and become a leader our-
selves if we make the effort
to look and follow their lead.
Finding a need to fll We are on
this planet for a reason. About this I am
sure. Each of us has a role in the grand
design. Each of us matter. Some of us
play a more obvious or active role. Some
of us play a quiet behind the scenes-type
role. If you dont believe you are a part
of what makes the world go round, then
you may be breathing but you sure arent
living. When you can determine what
need you are here to fll then you will
feel the broader connection to the fabric
of humankind. You will be able create

a different destiny for you and others.
Dont sell yourself short. Dont think
you are just one person who doesnt
have anything to say or nothing to share.
When you focus on what you do best
and become passionate about your gifts
you will be able to share those talents to
do the most good. In return, youll have
so many unexpected rewards come your
way.
Team up with like mindsWhen you
attract those who think and act similar
to you it can strengthen you on many
levels. This applies to both the positive
and negative. Take note of how negative
energies and negative people perpetu-
ate more of the negative. Thats a major
factor why criminals repeat crime when
released from prison. They team up with
other criminals while incarcerated, never
learn new and positive ways of living,
so they maintain that criminal mindset
when they return to society. Negative
people and behaviors feed upon each
other. The same applies to the positive.
Im referring, of course, to all that is
positive. Whenever possible surround
yourself with positive energies. Many of
us are in toxic relationshipspersonal
and professionalthat instead of nurtur-
ing us bring us down. Strive to walk on
that positive road alongside others who
are traveling in the same direction. If
you need help or fall back they will pull
you along. Thats what supportive people
do. They assist whenever possible. They
offer help which translates into hope.
You can be more passionate about life
when the input you receive is hopeful
not hopeless.
Although I wasnt on board from
the start, Ive been a part of the Natural
Muscle family now for over nine years.
It has been quite a remarkable journey
that I hope will go on. Ive come to
know the publisher and am proud to call
her my friend. Ive been surrounded by
a group of expert and knowledgeable
contributors whom I admire and respect.
Ive come to know you, the reader, and
am grateful when you take your valu-
able time to read my column and share
your opinions. Everywhere I go I get
such positive feedback. Everyone loves
the magazine and gets something from
it. It has changed lives because people
tell me so. They have gotten a wealth
of information on training and diet and
supplements and health that has given
them real results. They have been moved
or motivated by stories and articles that
have given them real hope. They have
been inspired to do better and be better
and make the world a better place. Natu-
ral Muscle is one of those wonderful dia-
monds in the rougha little gem foat-
ing around in a vast sea of sameness.
There is real heart and soul in each and
every issue. From cover to cover its put
together with the same passion and TLC
that has existed from the very beginning.
Eleven years later, its still herestill
going strong. Its good to know, in spite
of everything, we can depend on that.

Success/Life Coach
Six-Time National Bodybuilding Champion
T
here is a constant battle between appreciating
where you currently are and putting enough
pressure on yourself to take what youve already
accomplished to an even higher level.
If you do not take the time to appreciate where you
currently are and what youve already accomplished,
your journey through life will not be fulflling. But, if
you spend too much time patting yourself on the back,
youll probably fall far short of what you are truly capable
of achieving in your life.
If you put too much pressure on yourself to make
continual improvements, youll overwhelm yourself.
Youll eventually burn out. Its diffcult to be happy when
you constantly feel overwhelmed. But, if you dont put
enough pressure on yourself, you will not get the most out
of your abilities and become the best you can be.
Finding the right mental balance for you is an
ongoing, day-to-day, week-to-week, month-to-month,
and year-to-year proposition. And, the requirements for
you to achieve that ideal sense of balance are constantly
changing, evolving, and being redefned. The bulls eye,
so to speak, is moving all of the time.
Whats the solution to this dilemma in life? First, you
should realize that you are not alone. Everyone struggles
with this challenge.
You should also realize that the ideal state to be
always includes a certain amount of angst. Dont expect
to be totally satisfed with where you are all of the time.
Learn to live with this angst. Its your friend even though
it may not seem like it at times. You are a constant work
in progress-and you will be until the day you die.
Instead of assessing your level of happiness on a
short-term basis, evaluate how you feel about your jour-
ney in longer stretches of time. Instead of thinking about
how your day has gone, think about the quality of your
entire week. Instead of thinking only about your week,
take into account how your month has gone. Instead of
zeroing in on how well the past month has been for you,
take into account all the things that have transpired over
the last year.
The biggest illusion in life is that, once youve
worked hard enough and long enough, life will all of
sudden become easy.
The truth of the matter is that life never becomes
easy. No matter what youve done or how good things
are, they can always be better. If you dont continually do
at least a little work on making your life better each and
every day, youll eventually get a rude awakening. Youll
Mental
Balance
Life is a Self-Made Proposition
No matter how diffcult your journey may seem at times, you must rely on your own mental and emotional strength
to pull yourself through.
It would be nice to always have someone around who is always available to listen to problems, anticipate your needs,
and support you when things arent going well, wouldnt it? Unfortunately, people will not always be there for you
because they must deal with their own challenges,
Life is a self-made proposition. Many people unfairly expect someone else in their life to give them emotional sup-
port or motivational lifts every time they are down. They get disappointed when others arent there for them. These
unfair expectations of others can destroy relationships.
Dont put the pressure on other people when problems come up in your own life. Put the pressure on yourselfright
where it belongs. Taking the pressure head on may be just what you need to overcome your challenges. Heck, who
knows? Maybe the other people in your life think that YOU should be there for THEM when you are wallowing
with disappointment.
Learn to become self-reliant. Expect to get through the tough times yourself--and be thankful for those times when
someone else is able to help you out.

Dont ever expect the fght to be over . . . its

never over for anyone else either.

Meltdown by VPX is the most profound scientic fat loss innovation of the
decade. Meltdown has a star studded ingredient prole of newly invented ex-
clusive fat loss compounds designed to burn fat faster and longer by kicking up
a thermogenic storm! And thats just the tip of a very large iceberg of fat burning
science. Meltdown will radically increase energy levels, take mental acuity and
alertness into the stratosphere and induce an intense mood-altering euphoric
effect that is going to re-write fat loss biochemistry. Meltdown is also highly
pro-sexual. In fact Ill guarantee that you have the best sex you ever expe-
rienced shortly after taking Meltdown! However, we are only here today to
talk about fat loss.

Yohimbine is an alpha-2-antagonist which simply means it exerts its fat loss
magic by blocking the alpha-2 receptors. Blocking action of the alpha-2 recep-
tors is critical for fat loss because it increases blood ow in adipose tissue and as
a result ramps up internal fat metabolism causing previously stored body fat to
be released into the blood stream and burned as energy. This process is known
as Lipolysis. Yohimbine also works by increasing Norepinephrine (NE) - one of
the bodys principal lipolytic (fat burning) hormones. The challenge is that when
NE is released it stimulates both the alpha and beta receptors. While stimulating
the beta receptors causes the desired effect of fat liberation, NE simultaneously
also stimulates the alpha-2 receptors which can have the undesired effect of
interfering with the process of body fat being burned as energy. Yohimbine is a
really cool substance because it exerts a kind of self-protective mechanism by
blocking the alpha-2 receptors and guarding one of the bodys key fat burning
hormones called Norepinephrine. Simply stated, it is almost like Yohimbine has a
mind of its own that says Im going to increase NE to destroy body fat and noth-
ing is going to get in my way.
Because of the sheer fat burning potency of Yohimbine, we analyzed this chemical
very closely and now introduce two new forms (along with Yohimbine HCl) of Yo-
himbine in Meltdown. Consequently, Meltdown contains three specialized forms
of the potent fat loss agent, Yohimbine. Its no secret that when it comes to burning
fat, milligram per milligram, Yohimbine is even more effective than ephedra. Along
with pure Yohimbine HCl, Meltdown now contains 11-Hydroxy Yohimbine which
has unusually long half-life and, therefore, exerts a prolonged research-proven fat
burning effect for up to eight hours while increasing norepinephrine levels by up to
56%! This is important because Norepinephrine (NE) is one of the bodys principal
lipolytic (fat burning) hormones. Further, Meltdown also contains the rare alpha-
Yohimbine compound. The scientic marvel is that Yohimbine HCl, 11-Hydroxy
Yohimbine and alpha-Yohimbine work synergistically to increases lipolysis. These
compounds work particularly well in the stubborn areas of the butt, thighs and
abdomen because of the Yohimbine receptor cites concentrated in those areas.

Interestingly, most of these compound innovations contained in Meltdown
didnt even exist and had to be chemically engineered in the lab. For example,
20 milligrams Synephrine is supposed to be a fairly decent fat loss compound
similar in action and chemical structure to ephedrine. So we set up a human
subject study and tested all the parameters of fat loss using 1) 25 mgs of pure
Synephrine then, 2) 50 mgs of pure Synephrine HCl (hydrochloride) and nally,
3) 200 mgs of pure Synephrine HCl. Even when these high amounts of pure
Synephrine were stabilized with HCl and bound to a polymer-lipid based de-
livery system, thermogenisis was not induced. Furthermore, energy, heart rate
and oxygen uptake did not increase nor were any other markers of fat loss ap-
parent! We were about to give up on Synephrine until I came up with one last
creative effort to get this compound to work. We turned to several molecular
modications of Synephrine to see if this scientic approach would make this
compound an effective fat loss agent. I must admit that there was a great deal
of apprehension because generally speaking, if an ingredient doesnt work to
begin with, it normally doesnt work no matter what you do to the chemical
structure. The answer to the Synephrine challenge was to chemically engineer
Methyl Synephrine. To our delight Methyl Synephrine didnt make your heart
race or give you anxiety like ephedrine but provided almost equal amounts of
thermogenisis, energy and feeling of well being. After perfecting Methyl Syn-
ephrine, human subjects were excited about its effectiveness and our scientic
team was even more excited knowing how well beta andrenergic agonists
stack with alpha antagonists in regard to fat loss.

With Yohimbine HCl, 11-hydroxy Yohimbine, alpha-Yohimbine and Methyl Sy-
nephrine VPX could have easily stopped here and delivered the best fat burner
ever created. However, we had a great deal of other new compounds equally
important in assembling the most profound scientic fat loss innovation of the
decade. It is well documented in research that ephedrine and caffeine stacked
together have a signicant synergistic effect to cut fat and that ephedrine and caf-
feine stacked with Yohimbine had an even greater capacity to destroy fat. There-
fore, we theorized that combining caffeine with Methyl Synephrine (the chemical
cousin of ephedrine) would exert a similar fat loss effect. More importantly, we
theorized that we could even beat the old-school Ephedrine-Caffeine-Yohim-
bine combination with a more scientically hip: Caffeine-Methyl Synephrine-
Yohimbine HCl, 11-hydroxy Yohimbine, alpha-Yohimbine stack. And, human
subjects (including myself) conrmed that our theory was correct! All my
staff and I can say is that this combination rocks, period!

Phenylethylamine (PEA) processes the unique capacity to increase me-
tabolism by stimulating your thyroid gland and inducing thermogenisis to
burn fat while eliciting the mild euphoria of eating a 1000 chocolate bars.
So imagine if you could take PEA and make it 40 to 60 times more ef-
fective? Meltdown may give you the buzz of 40,000 fat and calorie free
chocolate bars while melting fat off faster than a blow torch! Therefore, it
was now time to add our new breakthrough fat loss compounds called, R--M-
PEA (R--Methylphenylethylamine) and n-Methyl--PEA (n-Methyl--Phenyl-
ethylamine). We originally began working with ordinary -PEA and -PEA HCl
but found these compounds to have far too many limitations. First, they were
metabolized far too quickly and secondly, their ability to cross the blood brain
barrier was weak and could, therefore, be astronomically improved up to 40 to
60 times by using the R--M-PEA and n-Methyl--PEA versions! This is mind
boggling considering that most consumers and other supplement companies
are already satised with ordinary PEA. But remember, Im staking my entire
career and reputation on my guarantee that Meltdown is the most profound
scientic fat loss innovation of the decade!
High Powered Hordenine
It is commonly known to skilled biochemists that the kinetics of
any version of PEA can be extended when combined with an MAO
inhibitor. However, I was highly disappointed with lack of MAO
inhibiting capacity of Hordenine and Hordenine HCL. We needed
this compound to kick butt for two major reasons. To achieve the
desired MOA inhibition effect, we again had to alter the basic
chemical structure to create a super type of High Powered Horde-
nine. Unlike straight Hordenine or Hordenine HCl, this special
Hordenine had to be a potent MAO inhibitor to prevent PEA from
being metabolized by the monoamine oxidase (MAO) enzyme.
Blocking MAO would increase the duration of action of our bril-
liant R--M-PEA and n-Methyl--PEA inventions and permit easy
transport across the blood brain barrier. In medicine this is called
increasing the pharmacokinetic value. This would allow R--M-
PEA and n-Methyl--PEA two of the most potent legal designer
fat loss compounds - to become even more efcacious.
Of equal importance, adding the appropriate functional group to
the chemical structure would also ramp up Hordenines intrinsic
andrenergic fat burning capacity. So, after attempting to stabi-
lize Synephrine with HCl and failing at hydroxylation to make it
more soluble as was accomplished with 11 Hydroxy Yohimbine,
we nally arrived at adding a Methyl functional group to Hordenine thus giving
birth to Undisputed King of all MOA Inhibitors called, Methyl Hordenine AKA
High Powered Hordenine! - not to mention that Methyl Hordenine and Methyl
Synephrine are an outstanding beta adrenergic agonist fat loss stack that works
synergistically with the triple Yohimbine alpha 1 and alpha 2 andrenergic antago-
nists. And, we are all well aware from old days of the Ephedrine (an andrenergic
agonist), Caffeine and Yohimbine stack that Caffeine further enhances the effect
of andrenergic agonists like Methyl Hordenine/Methyl Synephrine and Yohim-
bine. And, our Methyl Hordenine innovation produced effects beyond our wild-
est imagination with real human subjects when combined with R--M-PEA and
n-Methyl--PEA and the other above-mentioned compounds in Meltdown. This
resulted in a super clean mild X buzz with unprecedented mental acuity that
lasted for hours and extended thermogenisis, carb Craving Control

and other
markers of fat loss.
Methyl 8ynephrine AKA 8uper 8ynephrine


Caution: Synephrine DOES NOT WORK! I hate to burst your bubble but Syneph-
rine and Synephrine HCl are as useless as a screen door on a submarine. How-
ever, Methyl Synephrine is an off the chain version of Synephrine. This adrenergic
amine robustly accelerates fat metabolism and thermogenisis to simultaneously
speed up the fat burning process. Unlike its chemical cousin Ephedrine, Methyl
Synephrine has mild stimulating properties on the central nervous system which
is highly desirable because you get ultimate fat burning properties without the
racing heart and anxiety that ephedrine caused. This is because Ephedrine works
at the beta 2 receptor which acts on the CNS (central nervous system) and may
have side effects in unhealthy individuals while, Methyl Synephrine is one of the
adrenergic amines that stimulates the beta-3 receptors. This functions to increase
the metabolic rate without affecting heart rate or blood pressure. Synephrine re-
leases epinephrine and norepinephrine primarily in the beta-3 receptor sites in
adipose (fat) tissue. Stimulation of the beta-3 receptor sites brings forth lipolysis
meaning it stimulates fat metabolism. Another distinctive physiological property
of Methyl Synephrine is its role as an Alpha-1 adrenergic agonist which plays
a major part in the metabolization and destruction of body fat by freeing up
stored body fat and allowing you to burn it for energy (lipolysis). Acting on
both Alpha 1 and Beta 3 receptors to induce fat loss is why Methyl Synephrine
will earn its reputation as a powerful lipolytic agent in scientic circles when is
released to the general public.
Further, adding a functional group to the chemical structure ramped up Syn-
ephrines Beta 3 intrinsic fat burning capacity so that it worked like its chemi-
cal cousin ephedrine. So, after trying stabilization of Synephrine with HCl and
failing at hydroxylation, we nally arrived at adding a Methyl functional group
to Synephrine thus giving birth to Methyl Synephrine This compound was so
impressive that we trade marked it as Super Synephrine! And, of course our
Super Methyl Synephrine produced effects beyond our wildest imagination
with real human subjects when combined with R--M-PEA and n-Methyl--
PEA and the other above-mentioned compounds in Meltdown.

Death to Fat Cells - M-TTAl
Tetradecylthioacetic acid (TTA) is referred to in science as having pleiotropic
properties meaning that it produces many effects from a single compound.
As you probably expected, these effects all relate to monster fat loss! In fact,
the biological responses to TTA in regard to fat loss are so profound that it is
hard to believe a fat burning agent of this diverse nature actually exists. Guess
where fat is burned? Its burned in the mitochondria of the muscle cell and TTA
induces mitochondrial proliferation (increases the number of mitochondria in
the cell). The more mitochondria contained within a muscle cell, the greater
your capacity to burn fat. So its no wonder that another biological response to
TTA is increased catabolism of fatty acids. You have probably heard the word
catabolism before in reference to destroying muscle tissue which is not good;
however, in the case of TTA we refer to catabolism in regard to destroying fat
which is highly desired! Meltdown does NOT contain TTA. About 10 years ago
I was tagged with the name Supplement Guru for a reason and that was
because I am somewhat of a freak in the eld of research and development
science and also overly enthusiastic about bringing you new supplement inno-
vations that have physique-altering properties. Therefore, although very power-
ful, I wasnt going to use just TTA. Instead, the goal was to turn the heat up a
several hundred percent in Meltdown with M-TTA or Methyl TTA. M-TTA also
promotes anti-adiposity meaning it prevents you from storing fat along with
improving insulin sensitivity. If you read my Zero Impact Diet book or read the
newest N.O. Shotgun article, you would know the importance of insulin sensi-
tivity in building muscle and annihilating body fat. Other biological aspects of
M-TTA are, reduced proliferation and apoptosis (death) to fat cells.

This is a fantastic
lower-fat restaurant-
quality dish thats
very easy to make, the
chicken alone even by
itself is so good, the
capers are only option-
al if you are a lover of
capers then add them
in, it really adds to
the favour of this dish!
This recipe is for breasts, but can be
easily doubled. Make certain to use
only dry breadcrumbs as fresh will
not stick to the chicken as well. This
complete recipe is made on top of the
stove. Cooking time is for browning
the chicken.
Chicken Scaloppine
With Lemon Sauce
Ingredients
boneless skinless chicken breasts (pounded to
about 1/-inch thickness)
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

seasoning salt
olive oil (for frying)
2 tablespoons butter (optional)
1/ cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon capers (or to taste) (optional)
1/ teaspoon salt (can use more to taste)
- thin lemon slices
fresh parsley, chopped
Have a vegetarian family member?
You can made some eggplant
and use the sauce on it as well.
Directions
-In a small bowl, whisk together mustard and eggs; set
aside.
-Combine the dry bread crumbs, poultry seasoning,
garlic powder and seasoning salt; spread on a piece of
waxed paper.
-Dip the breasts in egg/mustard mixture (shake off any
excess egg).
-Then coat well with the crumb mixture.
-Heat the oil with 2 tablespoons butter(if using) in a
frypan.
-Saute the chicken for minutes on each side, or until
it is no longer pink inside.
-Remove and transfer to a plate to keep warm.
-In the same pan add in the broth, lemon juice, capers
(if using) and 1/ teaspoon salt (or to taste) bring to a

F
or those who enjoy these MMA articles, it has been
several months since the last one. The RFC event
had been cancelled because several of the major
fghters were injured and could not appear. The
heads of the RFC, Joe Valdez and Jason Freyre demon-
strated a lot of moral integrity by canceling the event.
I would have been satisfed to go with some alter-
nates, but Joe & Jason did not want to disappoint these
fans who were looking forward to the championship
matches. There was a large loss, including the rent for the
USF Sun Dome. This was a brave step to take and they
deserve kudos for their courage.
The event on September 1 was very exciting &
successful consisting of eight matches including a title
match, There were about ,000 in attendance.
The title match between Juan Barrantes and Edson
Berto was eagerly anticipated between these two top
fghters. Barrantes from Costa Rica, has a background
in Brazilian jiu jitsu and was trained by Ryan Gracie. He
has been on Showtime TV with a record of 1-1.
Berto comes from a fghting family. His is trained by
his dad, Dieusel Berto, a UFC and Pride fghter. Andre, his
brother is an Olympic boxer who is now a successful pro.
Berto is a local fghter out of Winter Haven Florida.
Typically the Brazilian fghters like to wrestle on
the ground with a submitting hold as the goal. Barrantes
tried this tactic time after time. Berto was having none
of it, preferring to stand and box, fghting a smart fght,
pounding Barrantes who bravely fought the last half
with a broken nose.
When the last fght started, I turned on my camera
and started to shoot the match. All I got was Chris Adams
unconscious on the mat. Within 1 seconds this 20 lb
heavyweight had been suplexed, and was out to the world.
We all held our breath waiting to see if he was ok. He
came to and recovered after a few minutes.
The next RFC match will be held at the USF Sun
Dome on November 10 .

at cdctampa@yahoo.com. We will try to answer interest-
ing questions in future articles.

I
f you go to a commercial gym and you have been
a member for many years you see that there are
people that go day in and day out and look the same
every year. They complain about their lack of progress
but still you see that they very stoically go from one
machine to the next and do the same thing over and
over again. These people are typically the same ones
that attribute their lack of progress to bad genetics, to
age or perhaps for not being able to afford the latest
new supplement on the market that promises the world.
Fact is that their lack of progress is not because of any
of the reasons above.
After troubleshooting a lot of bodybuilding and
ftness programs of the people who are not making
progress, here are the main causes I have found for
their training plateaus:
1) Having a poorly designed routine.
A poorly designed routine I defne as one that:
A) Takes too long to complete:
more than 1 hour in the gym decreases your testoster-
one levels so after 0 minutes you are wasting your
time.
B) Lacks basic multi-jointed exercises:
A good routine needs to have exercises like squats, the
dead-lifts, lunges, pull-ups, dips, and presses. The trend
I see today is too much over reliance on the latest and
greatest machines which only serve to make a move-
ment easier, and thus, do not provide the
stimulation that a properly executed free
weight and multi-jointed exercise provides.
C) Lacks change:
Exercise routines that do not change
keep the body the same. How many
times have I heard that the chest
routine that is not working any lon-
ger is sets of bench, of incline,
and of fyes for - reps; mind
you that this is the same routine
that has been used for the past
years. Not changing your routine
allows the bodys nervous system to adapt and get used
to it. Once the body adapts there is no further gains. In
order to keep the body guessing, intermediate body-
builders should change their routines every three weeks
or so. If you have read my previous articles or any of
my publications you know that I am a big proponent
of cycling the repetitions, set numbers and rest times
in a logical manner in order to make the most gains in
a minimum amount of time. These cycling principles
are nothing more than periodization of the workouts,
a tried and true technique that allows the gains to keep
coming while preventing stagnation. In any case, the
moral of the story is to change the workout routines.
A good indicator of when to change is that once you
dont get sore it is time to change. The more advanced
you are, the more this becomes a reality. As a matter of
fact, highly trained bodybuilders change their routines
slightly every time that they go to the gym in order to
keep the body from going stagnant.
2) Having a poor diet.
This is the second factor for lack of gains. Many times
people think that they are eating a lot but what they
perceive as suffcient is not nearly enough to cause
muscle gains. In order to get the body to grow you
need at least 1.0-1. grams of protein per pound of
lean body mass (LBM-fat free weight). This protein
needs to come from lean sources (such as chicken, egg
whites, and white fsh) and needs to be spread equally
in - meals (the larger you are the more meals you
need) spaced 2- hours apart in order to be able to
maintain a constant fux of amino acids
going into the system and to prevent
the body from going into a catabolic
state; a state that typically happens
after . hrs of no eating in which
the body starts using the bodys
amino acid supply (muscles) to feed
itself. Also you need suffcient
good fats in the diet to support the
production of hormones as well
as enough carbohydrates to fuel
your workouts. Good fats are in
the form of Flaxseed Oil or in the
form of Udos Ultimate Oil Blend. If muscle size is the
goal then Udos Oil is better ( Tablespoons through-
out the day should suffce most people over 10 and 2
if under 10). Use Flax Oil when fat loss is the goal.
Carbohydrate requirements vary based on metabolism.
A person with a slow metabolism that needs to gain
muscle should have anywhere from 1.0-1. grams
of complex carbohydrates (like brown rice, sweet
potatoes and grits) per pound of lean body mass (fat
free weight). A good way to start is using the 1. gram
fgure and if you notice that your skinfold calipers
are showing a bigger number then reduce to a lesser
amount. If a high metabolism is your case then 2-
grams per pound of LBM should be your requirement.
Also, ensure that after the workout anywhere from
0-100 grams of carbs are taken from higher glycemic
source such as cream of rice, or rice cakes, along with
whey isolate (a fast release protein) in order to re-fll
the muscle glycogen stores and provide the amino acids
that are much needed for repair in order to expedite the
recovery process.
3) Not enough rest.
Are you aware that a night of lost sleep can set back
your testosterone levels (which is one of the hormones
that is most responsible for muscle growth) for about
days? Not good if muscle growth is what you are after.
In addition, depressed sleep also causes insulin insen-
sitivity; a condition where your muscle cells become
less receptive to the hormone insulin. This is not good
as insulin is the hormone that carries both the carbohy-
drates and the amino acids from protein into the muscle
cell. Insulin resistance short circuits the delivery of
nutrients into the cells. In addition to that, insulin resis-
tance causes the body to start producing more insulin
as a means to overcompensate which will give you
low blood sugar levels along with increased fat storage
(since the body will take those nutrients that it can not
store in the liver or muscle cells and store them as fat
for future energy purposes). Couple all of this with
increased cortisol levels (hormone that destroys muscle
tissue and helps the body store fat) and you have a sure
fre recipe to a smaller and fatter you. If looking good
is your goal, 7- hours of sleep ( is recommended for

the elite body-
builders that
train twice
a day) is the
prescrip-
tion.
4)Too much
alcohol.
Yet another muscle
growth killer and fat
storage facilitator.
Im not against and
occasional drink
or two but if you
are planning on
getting toasted
every weekend
say good-bye to
muscle gains and
hello to the bear
gut. Plan on buy-
ing bigger pants,
as alcohol gets
stored in the body
rather quickly in addition
to the fact that each gram
has 7 calories. So if muscle
growth is the goal, water
should be the main beverage
of choice with the prescription
being 0. times total bodyweight in
ounces of water per day.
5) Lack of consistency.
For any bodybuilding program to work, consistency
is absolutely necessary. If you are not consistent with
your diet, your training and your sleep, then do not
expect to get signifcant results from your bodybuild-
ing program. Building a championship physique takes
years of consistent and intelligent application of the
training, nutrition and recovery variables.
Training Plateaus
and Lack of Progress
While there are more
reasons out there why
there is no more muscle
growth in the gyms these
days these are the main
ones that come to mind.
Remember, success in body-
building equals Determination x
(Training + Nutrition + Recov-
ery). By sabotaging one of the
components in the formula
you will get fewer results
than what you should be
getting. Incorporate all of
the components correctly
and youll be amazed
at how quickly you can
induce change. Your friends
will start accusing you of being
on steroids; I guarantee you!

Muscleology:If the arm is in a raised
position the pectoralis major will de-
press the arm into the side of the chest.
Acting alone the pectoralis major
adducts and draws the arm forward
across the body in front of the chest.
The petoralis minor depresses the
point of the shoulder, and draws the
scapula (shoulder blade) downwards
and inwards to the thorax.

Muscle Anatomy: Pectoralis Major is a triangular muscle that is
thick, and broad. It arises from the sternal half of the clavicle bone,
also from the anterior surface of the sternum and attaches as low as
the sixth or seventh rib. The majority of the fbers converge towards
its insertion point, giving it a radiated appearance. Fibers coming
from the clavicle region run outwards and downwards, fbers from
the sternum and the lower ribs pass upwards and outwards, and the
middle fbers pass horizontally. Pectoralis minor is also a triangular
muscle that is thin and fat. Positioned at the upper end of the thorax,
attached to the
rd
,
th
,
th
ribs and inserting on the coracoid process,
this muscle is beneath the pectoralis major.

s it better to bulk up for added muscle
growth or stay lean and healthy-look-
ing all year around?
The old school way of thinking
is that you must carry around a little
extra weight for a certain period of time
during the year to eventually build more
muscle. Or, is this just an excuse to go a
little overboard on your nutrition under
the guise of doing yourself some good?
It is true that there are some ben-
efts to bulking up. The additional body
fat youll inherit with that extra weight
will not necessarily help you pack on
more muscle in the end. However, extra
food and excess body fat can help pre-
vent your body from ever using its pre-
cious muscle as an energy source, help
you feel more energized than you may
on a calorie restricted meal plan, and
maybe even help you feel as though you
can train heavier in the gym.
But is it really necessary to put on
excess weight in order to gain muscle?
No. With a little extra discipline and
some consistent, scientifcally-based
nutritional strategies, you can effectively
build muscle and remain looking lean
and healthy.
Heavy, overload training (Max-OT),
adequate recuperation from your train-
ing, and consistently eating high-quality
protein (VP2 Whey Isolate and Ny-Tro
PRO-0) are key ingredients to building
rock-solid muscle massnot putting on
extra weight and delusional size (which
is really just excess body fat).
When it comes to eating to build
muscle, you must have an effective plan-
of-attack. Eating the right foods before
Bulking Up
Is So Old School!
and after
your work-
outs, putting
a high-priority
on eating the right
foods during the three-
hour window of muscle
building opportunity, and
consuming smaller, well-
balanced meals consistently
throughout the day is what the cut-
ting-edge research says is the most effec-
tive way to build muscle, stay lean, and
maintain your health.
Sorry, guys. Your rationale for
getting fat and sloppy wont work
any more. The bulking up theory
doesnt stand up to the scientifc re-
search we have available to us today.
Is it really necessary to put
on excess weight
in order to gain muscle?
No!

welcome to
my world
I love excellence in everything! In MY WORLD, excellence has
to do with laying it on the line, getting up again and again, and
persevering. And doesnt seem strange that those possess these
traits seem to be lucky and get all the breaks. I personally
dont believe in luck - unless you defne it as persistence, per-
severance and practice meeting opportunity. Most people with
this luck are crowd champions by deed over words.
For the past 7 years I have been privileged by the BossLADY
of NMM to introduce you to MY WORLD. I hope you would
agree with me that there have been CHAMPIONS. This
months champion follows in a long line of lucky people.
Point in fact, Amber Ameredes is a World Champion who
exhibits high-energy with consistent values I respect and ap-
preciate. At frst meeting she quietly beckons you to listen
and watch her. I love her smile, enthusiasm, and willingness
to go 110%. She is fast becoming a role model worth emula-
tion and admiration and is on her way to the top of the ftness
world.
Put an asterisk by her name and see if I am correct.

always will be.
How do you want to be remembered as an athlete?
I want to be remembered as someone who always remained humble no mat-

M
y name is Suzanne Shaheed. I
am a wife, a deputy sheriff, and
a lifetime natural bodybuilder.
Through out my bodybuilding career, I
have competed in 1 contests, winning
10 class/division titles and overall
titles. I love the idea of challenging my-
self in this sport. Through bodybuilding,
I learned that with discipline, determina-
tion, and desire all goals that I set can be
achieved, not only in bodybuilding, but
in all aspects of my life. Bodybuilding
gave me confdence when I was at
the lowest point of my life. Through
bodybuilding, I changed my attitude,
my outlook, and it helped me to become
stronger mentally and physically.
Back in July 17, I went to the
doctor regarding recurring aches, pains,
joint swelling, and a general feeling of
fatigue. After various tests, the doctor
informed me, I had Systemic Lupus
Erythematosus(an autoimmune disorder
where the immune system is hyperactive
and attacks and injuries its own tissues
and organs). I had a slight feeling of re-
lief at this time, because my problem had
been recognized, there was also a feeling
of depression because now I knew I had
to deal with this illness for the rest of
my life.
My frst major fare involved my
heart and lungs. Both organs became
infamed and
required count-
less trips to the
doctor offce and
hospital. During
this time, I lost
weight, lost hair
and struggled
with everyday
life trying to fnd
the energy to
do the simplest
things. Breathing was problem, eating
was hassle and I was just going through
the motions of life.
One day, a friend, who saw how
I was fading away, invited me to the
Orange County Convention Center to
check out a Bodybuilding Contest.
Reluctantly, I went and that is what
turned my life around. We entered
the hall while the Women Class was
on the stage. I remember seeing
the fnely sculpted bodies. I liked
the way those women looked and
the way they moved. I remember
seeing not only the power but also
the femininity that those women
had. I also remember the confdence
that glowed from each one, from
the biggest women on the stage to
the person who was last in the class,
they all were sharp. I was totally
blown away by what I saw. I re-
member saying to myself That is
where I want to be. That is what I
want to do..(Side note: The class I
watched was the Womens Middle-
weight Class. When they called out
the Heavyweights, my jaw hit the
foor.).
It took awhile to get that frst
episode under control. But then, I
had another lupus fare. This time
the fare affected my kidneys. I had a
kidney biopsy and was then ordered
by my nephologist(kidney doctor)
to start monthly chemotherapy treat-
ments to stop the damage to my kidneys.
I cried. All I could think of was becom-
ing very ill all over again. But with
time, patience,
and listening
to my doctors I
got my health
on track and
could attempt
bodybuilding.
I found
an excellent
coach, Chris
Challenger. He
is competitive
bodybuilder, with a passion to help his
clients reach their potential. I explained
to Chris about my health concerns and
he came up with a diet plan and workout
regimen. I was now preparing for my
frst contest.
The training was tough. The days I
had to go the hospital were even tougher.
I would bring additional protein drinks
so I would not miss a meal. I knew
what to eat and not to eat on the hospital
tray. And as tired as I was, when I was
released from the hospital, the frst thing
I would do is hit the gym for a cardio
session. It also helped to sweat out some
of the treatment. Nothing was going to
stop me from my goal.
In June of 2000, I competed and in
the Orlando Muscle Classic. I won the
Womens Novice Division.
Bodybuilding was major personal
challenge to me due to my health con-
cerns. But it taught me three important
lessons:
discipline- follow the plan and success
will be yours
determination-you control your destiny,
not anyone or anything else
desire-If you want something,
and you work towards it, it
will be yours
And these are lessons
that you can use in any part of
your life.
I competed from 2000
- 2002. Applying these lessons,
in 2002, I left my offce job
to become a deputy sheriff,
something else I always want-
ed to do. The good thing was
that many of the health and
ftness lessons that I learned in
my competitive years, I could
apply to my new career. In
200, I married my longtime
sweetheart. The good thing
with change is that it keeps life
exciting, the bad thing is that
I had to hold off on compet-
ing until my life became more
stable.
Stability occurred in
2007. I returned to the sport
I love. I was back under the
guidance of Coach Chris Chal-
lenger. But my new job gave
me new obstacles to overcome.
I needed 2 hours access to a
gym, due to my work schedule, and my
diet was very different due to the fact I
was no longer in an offce. But when
you desire to compete, you will make all
the changes necessary to make it happen.
I made all the necessary changes to make
it happen.

I competed three times in 2007, here are
the results:
Space Coast Heavyweight Division
Winner
Mid Florida Classic Women Overall
Winner and Best Poser
Musclemania 2nd Place Womens Divi-
sion
I am anxious for what my next
season hold for me. I love the thought of
competing with others. I love body-
building and I love the what it has done
for my confdence, my outlook and my
life
Story

After various tests, the doctor informed me,
I had Systemic Lupus Erythematosus.
I had a slight feeling of relief at this time,
because my problem had been
recognized, there was also a feeling of
depression because now I knew I had
to deal with this illness for the rest of my
life.

orn and raised in Augusta, GA. I lived
life being a kid, having fun, and dream-
ing of being, somebody. I wanted my
life to count.
At 1yrs old, I was diagnosed with (Type
1) Juvenile Diabetes, almost entering into
a diabetic coma with a blood sugar of 0.
With excruciating pain of Keto-acidosis, I
went into Pediatric ICU for several days
to learn I had diabetes. I had never heard
of it until then. I had a positive outlook,
so I began the diabetes education, nutri-
tion counseling and gave my second
insulin shot to myself with
no problems. Some doctors
said it was typical for kids
to return with complications
within a matter of time. I was
determined to prove them
wrong.
In high school, I played foot-
ball and soccer. My older
brother and friend taught
me the importance of lifting
weights, and I immediately
signed up for weight lifting
class. I partied, played sports,
did drugs, got drunk, ran
after girls, and I also began
smoking marijuana and quit
football my senior year
BIG MISTAKE!! My mom
busted me and because I let
her down, I havent done it
since. The night I graduated
high school, I became a new
person. It was the moment Je-
sus became very REAL to me
and number one in my life.
As I entered college life, I laid
aside athletics and focused on
being successful. I attended
Rhema Bible Training Center
to major in youth ministry. I
was married, graduated col-
lege, became a youth minister,
and my daughter was born all
within1 months time.
A few years later, I was back into ft-
ness/nutrition, and I began implementing
marketing into my churchs (New Life
Christian Center) youth ministry. I worked
out in the churchs gym and could only
commit to ONCE a week. I knew if I
were consistent, I would see results. After
several months, I began working out
times per week.
As a youth pastor, my youth group grew
from 1 teens per week to around 10-10
per week in a matter of months. I also
went from weighing 10lbs to 1lbs. I
wanted to look my best, but had a lot to
learn. I kept pushing, but there were many
hardships along the way. I went through
a tough divorce and custody battle, but
my family and good friends stood by me
along the way.
In 2001, I joined my frst health club and
entered into a new level of training, com-
mitment, and excitement. I was determined
to learn everything I could by reading
books, magazines, and studying it from a
diabetics perspective and became a certi-
fed personal ftness trainer.
In 2002, I began co-hosting the
Angel Award winning Christian
music TV show Roc House
Caf and continued four sea-
sons, hosted The Movement
youth conferences, the voice of
LIVIN LOUD radio spots for
www.electmovement.com, and
traveled speaking in multi-ra-
cial/denominational churches.
In 200, I began to see some
changes in my life. I hosted
one last season of RocHouse
Caf, launched out from being
a youth pastor, and began build-
ing up my graphic design busi-
ness. I even quit my full-time
job to focus on my business
venture. Despite all this, I was
still unhappy with my body. By
end of the year, I had the oppor-
tunity for a print modeling job
in Orange County, California.
They asked if I could have a
ftness physique in 12 weeks,
so I accepted the challenge and
got to work.
I did NOT know 200 would
be such a monumental year of
my life!!! I began working out
- times per week, sometimes
twice a day, and began to eat
JMIAh
clean. After that frst job, I began using
my graphic design/marketing skills to
help promote modeling and work just
kept growing. My motive is to help my
clients/friends be successful just as much
as myself.
During the summer of 200, I was se-
lected as one of the top 1 male fnalists
for Hard Body Entertainments Worlds
Fittest Model Search at Olympia in Las
Vegas, NV. It was my frst contest and
though I didnt win, something sparked in
me that I could get better. So I competed
in Fitness Hollywoods Model America
and placed th out of guys. In 2007, I
placed 2nd in my frst FAME/SNBF Male
Model competition, became FAS-NETs
Oklahoma MALE MODEL Champion,
and then WON 2ND PLACE in the pres-
tigious Model Universe. Ive been on the
Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency TV
show, recently appeared on NBCs new
game show, Identity. Ive been pub-
lished in several ftness magazines, but my
goals are high and im still moving, not
giving up until I reach my MAXIMUM
POTENTIAL.
I realize my calling in life is ultimately
to be as close to God as I can, but I also
want to be an inspiration by touching lives
as far as I can reach especially the teen
and young adult generation. My priority
success goal is to be an infuence in an ever
changing society.
Every one of us is given a life to live, a
race to run, and a chance to win. The ques-
tion is, How BAD do you want it?! Ive
learned you can do anything you want
pay the price. Anything worth having in
life costs something so pay the price.
You can pay now and play later or play
now and pay later; either way youll
pay the price. Count the cost and give it
all youve got!!
