Bodybuilding Insulin Protocol

Insulin

Insulin

Insulin is used by diabetics to be able to live a normal life. In order to utilize the glucose (energy) found within the carbohydrate-laden foods we consume, insulin must be present to facilitate its (glucose) absorption. Insulin also plays an essential role in fat and protein metabolism. But I won’t bore you with that. This blog-post is meant for insulin’s role in bodybuilding. It’s used as a bridge drug with GH, for dieting (ketosis) but mostly for bulking. Many people say that insulin ruined bodybuilding. Well the same is said about Synthol. We all agree that these compounds will stay in bodybuilding, because they have their use. In my opinion insulin is especially useful for the skinny and the hardgainer. If you are a beginner you will have no use for insulin until you reach a plateau. Many people also think that you can achieve more by manipulating your endogenous insulin. That’s also why people believe endogenous growth hormone is superior to exogenous (injected) GH and use secratogogues. In case of insulin that is done with by means of eating high glycemic foods like white rice. Some people blame Dan Duchaine of introducing insulin in bodybuilding, others Tim Belknap, but most of them blame Milos Sarcev. More on that on the end of the blog-post. It is important to realize the POWER of insulin. Many describe it as the most anabolic hormone in the human body. It has no doubt been a factor in increasing appetite and the effectiveness of growth hormone, therefore, resulting in added muscle growth. However, insulin is not for everyone. It can be very dangerous if you are not aware of the many variables that go along with injecting insulin. One day of being irresponsible with your insulin dose could be potentially fatal. Take your time to educate yourself on di Continue reading >>

Did Dorian Yates And Milos Sarcev Ruin Bodybuilding Forever?

Did Dorian Yates And Milos Sarcev Ruin Bodybuilding Forever?

Modern bodybuilders are paying with their health, both mental and physical, to maintain an absurd amount of muscle mass at low body fat levels. But why is size so important? After all, “building” is supposed to be a form of construction – not necessarily an enlargement of something. Modern bodybuilders have forgotten that and only care about getting bigger and bigger. The first men who took the size game to a whole new level were Dorian Yates and Milos Sarcev. Dorian Yates and The New Size Standards Dorian Yates is a retired bodybuilder who won Mr. Olympia six times in a row. He was also the first Mr. Olympia weighing 250lbs bodyweight in a super lean condition. This happened in the mid-90s when Yates was at his best. Unfortunately, those so-called “new standards” didn’t help bodybuilding. Many believe that the reason for Dorian Yates’ extraterrestrial size were his training methods and nutrition, but nothing could be further from the truth. The nutrition protocol of Yates was the good old high carb diet – oatmeals, brown rice, sweet potato…etc. In other words, nothing unheard of. As far as training goes, in the beginning, he followed regular bodybuilding routines similar to the ones you see in the bodybuilding magazines. Later, he switched to the so-called High-Intensity Training (HIT) which was popularized by Mike Mentzer and Arthur Jones. There’s nothing special about that training method. It won’t magically help you break 250lbs while maintaining your shredded abs. So, what was the secret? The secret is called human growth hormone (HGH) and insulin. The combination of those two is the reason why pro bodybuilders got so freaky in the mid-90s. Dorian Yates was one of the first bodybuilders to successfully use insulin. In about 12 months, he gaine Continue reading >>

Insulin (medication)

Insulin (medication)

"Insulin therapy" redirects here. For the psychiatric treatment, see Insulin shock therapy. Insulin is used as a medication to treat high blood sugar.[3] This includes in diabetes mellitus type 1, diabetes mellitus type 2, gestational diabetes, and complications of diabetes such as diabetic ketoacidosis and hyperosmolar hyperglycemic states.[3] It is also used along with glucose to treat high blood potassium levels.[4] Typically it is given by injection under the skin, but some forms may also be used by injection into a vein or muscle.[3] The common side effect is low blood sugar.[3] Other side effects may include pain or skin changes at the sites of injection, low blood potassium, and allergic reactions.[3] Use during pregnancy is relatively safe for the baby.[3] Insulin can be made from the pancreas of pigs or cows.[5] Human versions can be made either by modifying pig versions or recombinant technology.[5] It comes in three main types short–acting (such as regular insulin), intermediate–acting (such as NPH insulin), and longer-acting (such as insulin glargine).[5] Insulin was first used as a medication in Canada by Charles Best and Frederick Banting in 1922.[6] It is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines, the most effective and safe medicines needed in a health system.[7] The wholesale cost in the developing world is about US$2.39 to $10.61 per 1,000 iu of regular insulin and $2.23 to $10.35 per 1,000 iu of NPH insulin.[8][9] In the United Kingdom 1,000 iu of regular or NPH insulin costs the NHS 7.48 pounds, while this amount of insulin glargine costs 30.68 pounds.[5] Medical uses[edit] Giving insulin with an insulin pen.

Igf-1 For Bodybuilders And Athletes

Igf-1 For Bodybuilders And Athletes

IGF-1 – or insulin-like growth factor 1 to give it its full name – is an intriguing anabolic hormone that has proven itself to be an excellent addition to the PED cycling regimes of bodybuilders and athletes alike. In this guide we take a closer look at IGF-1s action, what results you can expect from its use and what potential side effects to watch out for. Naturally produced by the liver, IGF-1 is a hormone similar in structure to that of insulin, hence its name. During childhood it is one of the primary hormones responsible for growth and remains a powerful precursor to cell growth in adults – something bodybuilders and athletes have naturally taken an interest in! IGF-1 in action When it comes to its effect on the body, IGF-1 shares many of the same traits as human growth hormone (HGH). This is to be expected; HGH is in fact a precursor to IGF-1, signalling for its release when the HGH binds to its receptors. It’s the IGF-1 that stimulates muscle growth and promotes protein anabolism. IGF-1 is highly anabolic and will promote both muscle hypertrophy (growth) and hyperplasia (formation of new muscle cells). While the level of muscle growth from IGF-1 use is likely to be less than that of most anabolic androgenic steroids, the hyperplastic effects of IGF-1 is highly desirable and cannot be achieved from steroids which merely hypertrophies the existing muscle tissue. In addition and of particular interest to athletes, IGF-1 has a positive effect on connective tissue and cartilage repair making it a superb compound to run during rehab and heavy training phases within the year. Unlike HGH, IGF-1 doesn’t appear to directly cause heightened fat mobilisation. This is interesting because many users of the hormone do note its apparent ability to reduce or maintain bo Continue reading >>

Mutant's Insulin Protocal

Mutant's Insulin Protocal

Ok, so after talking to some professional and elite bodybuilders, I have learned quite a bit about what a well known professional trainer is having these bodybuilders to do to obtain the retarded amounts of weight they have been added to their bodies. It's simply taking their insulin pre-workout, combined with 3 "shakes". I looked at this Insulin protocol, and the ingredients in the shakes, and designed my own Insulin Protacol to better suit my goals and routine. I use better quality of ingredients in my shakes, and added my HGH pre-workout, and igf-1lr3 post workout as well. Now, the theory behind this insulin protocol is, "Why break the body down, only to rebuild it? When you can simply keep adding onto the Body!" So basically, by forcing the carbohydrates and Essential Amino Acids into your muscles while you train, the muscle tissue is not breaking down in the same manner that they normally would. It is actually being both protected and forced to grow at the same time. I have not done too much research behind the theory, but it sure sounded good to me, based on what I know about enhancing drugs and supplementation. I prefer trying things out myself, and going by results. Well, the results were spectacular. Before I begin, I want to say that this typed out protocol is just a base. It is to give you a base to work from/with. Everybody is different. Some people will need more or less carbs and amino acids. This is based on the amount of insulin that they are using and how their bodies react. This is why I gave a range for the supplements and insulin doses. You will need to adjust it based on how you react. For the carbohydrates, always start high, and lower it accordingly, once you get the feel of it. We start off by taking our HGH, and give it a few minutes to get circ Continue reading >>

Insulin For Bodybuilders

Insulin For Bodybuilders

Insulin is a peptide hormone that is secreted by the pancreas. It regulates the metabolism of carbohydrates and fat in the body, and promotes protein synthesis and glucose utilization. Designed for use by people with insulin disorders such asPCOS, Insulinoma, metabolic syndrome and diabetes mellitus, biosynthetic "human" insulin is taken by injection. Video of the Day Insulin helps to volumize each cell. This is why insulin is considered to have an anabolic effect. Bodybuilders take it to increase stamina and improve endurance. Additionally, it is used to increase muscle bulk because it stimulates glycogen formation, which feeds the muscles during a workout. Finally, insulin works to prevent the breakdown of muscle protein, which also helps a person bulk up with muscle. How To Use Typically, users inject insulin three times daily -– immediately upon awakening, mid-day, and then immediately following a workout -- for a total of 15 to 45 IUs. The three types of insulin used the most include Humalin “N,” Humalin “R,” and Humalog. Each of these is used at different times of the day and at different times during the bulking cycle. The injection may be done intravenously, subcutaneously, or intramuscularly. The most common site of injection is the abdomen. High-glycemic index foods such as jelly beans, honey, glucose tablets, maltose, or dates are consumed with the injection to prevent the blood glucose level from going too low. In addition, a very rigorous diet must be followed to see the benefits and to decrease the risks involved. Improper use of insulin can lead to the person developing diabetes mellitus, long-term organ damage, coma, or death. Symptoms of insulin shock include sweating, a clammy feeling, paleness, hunger, anxiety, trembling, rapid heartbeat, fa Continue reading >>

Insulin Usage For Gaining Muscle Mass In Bodybuilding

Insulin Usage For Gaining Muscle Mass In Bodybuilding

Home > Steroids > Insulin Usage For Gaining Muscle Mass in Bodybuilding Building muscle is a hard. With all the resources at disposal, we still struggle to find a product that can help us reach this goal. Insulin became a popular agent due to its powerful anabolic features. Properly taken, insulin can turn you into a massive gay or big fat gay if dosage exceeded. To make insulin your ally for building a crazy body read our post and highlight details to know about safe use. Let’s talk about how insulin can be use to gain lean muscle mass and what manipulations are needed to be known to make this process smooth and free of any risks. Insulin promotes the diffusion of glucose into the cells via the insulin receptor. Very high concentrations of insulin result in protein synthesis by the strongly stimulated muscle. Insulin is a protein secreted by the pancreas which acts on the liver to stimulate the formation of glycogen from glucose and to inhibit the conversion of non-carbohydrates into glucose. Insulin also promotes the diffusion of glucose into the cells via the insulin receptor. Very high concentrations of insulin result in protein synthesis by the strongly stimulated muscle. It does so mainly by improving the initiation of the peptide chain. These results make it incredibly useful to bodybuilders and athletes. And those factors combine to make ingested protein more efficient by promoting the transport of amino acids into muscle cells. We can clearly say that insulin is undoubtedly essential for anabolic muscle tissue. It also increases bone density. Another mechanism increasing the anabolic effect of insulin is that insulin increases the levels of IGF (Insulin in your body. No need to remind you that IGF-1 is a highly anabolic hormone.

Chemical Muscle #3 Insulin and Bodybuilding; Growth Hormone Releasing Peptides by Author L. Rea Publication Date: December 11, 2002 Nothing in this article is intended to take the place of advice from a licensed health professional. Consult a physician before taking any medication. For note I am a national level competitor. Here are my questions that I would like you to help with: Is taking GH a good idea at say 3iu 3x/day or will it be released as a consequence of mechanisms to a far greater degree naturally through this program and therefore not necessary as exo? Can you eat as much fat as you wish due to the extra calorie expenditure (like with DNP) or is there a limit--I was eating about 4800 calories last bulking phase with minimum fat gain so if I ate about 800g protein how much fat is optimal with this plan, also would try to use 'good' fats predominantly like omegas, olive, walnuts, CLA, GLA, fish? Obvioulsy in this plan am I correct to assume you CAN have slin and fat in system simultaneously or is that still best to try to avoid? The table in the article shows that slin and test suspension are taken EOD each is this correct? I see Continue reading >>

Evidence-based Recommendations For Natural Bodybuilding Contest Preparation: Nutrition And Supplementation

Evidence-based Recommendations For Natural Bodybuilding Contest Preparation: Nutrition And Supplementation

Go to: The popularity of natural bodybuilding is increasing; however, evidence-based recommendations for it are lacking. This paper reviewed the scientific literature relevant to competition preparation on nutrition and supplementation, resulting in the following recommendations. Caloric intake should be set at a level that results in bodyweight losses of approximately 0.5 to 1%/wk to maximize muscle retention. Within this caloric intake, most but not all bodybuilders will respond best to consuming 2.3-3.1 g/kg of lean body mass per day of protein, 15-30% of calories from fat, and the reminder of calories from carbohydrate. Eating three to six meals per day with a meal containing 0.4-0.5 g/kg bodyweight of protein prior and subsequent to resistance training likely maximizes any theoretical benefits of nutrient timing and frequency. However, alterations in nutrient timing and frequency appear to have little effect on fat loss or lean mass retention. Among popular supplements, creatine monohydrate, caffeine and beta-alanine appear to have beneficial effects relevant to contest preparation, however others do not or warrant further study. The practice of dehydration and electrolyte manipulation in the final days and hours prior to competition can be dangerous, and may not improve appearance. Increasing carbohydrate intake at the end of preparation has a theoretical rationale to improve appearance, however it is understudied. Thus, if carbohydrate loading is pursued it should be practiced prior to competition and its benefit assessed individually. Finally, competitors should be aware of the increased risk of developing eating and body image disorders in aesthetic sport and therefore should have access to the appropriate mental health professionals.

The Ultimate Insulin Protocol

The Ultimate Insulin Protocol

Since writing The Ultimate Insulin Protocol roughly 5 years ago, I have received numerous requests asking for my opinion regarding some of the newer products on the market and whether or not they can be used as substitutions for the original components. After responding with a few abbreviated posts, but continuing to see similar questions posted all over the boards, I decided to take a few minutes to address this officially, but more importantly, to clear up some of the misconceptions surrounding the original protocol. First and foremost, the reader should understand that when this protocol was designed, it was intended to be generic in nature; to serve as basic template one could follow when putting together their own program. But rather than being used for its intended purpose, many began to replicate it word for word, without any regard for the importance of personalization. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the original, the objective was simple: to create an easy to follow, highly effective, sustainable program devoid of the metabolic health risks inherent in many of the more elaborate programs, while being suitable for both beginner and advanced bodybuilders alike. In short, I wanted people to be able to experience the benefits of insulin, but without the potential consequences so often associated with its use. Due to its success in balancing effectiveness with safety, it was in a sense the “ultimate” insulin protocol. Although many factors were considered in its design, it was insulin timing and food type-timing that formed the foundation and on which everything else was built. While the original did include certain supplements in addition to the protein and carb-based variety, the majority were optional; there to give the reader some ideas as to what Continue reading >>

Growth Hormone: What Is It And What Does It Do - An Expert's View!

Growth Hormone: What Is It And What Does It Do - An Expert's View!

Since its inception, and first application as a bodybuilding super-substance GH has remained an anabolic that has attracted many conflicting opinions and has been shrouded in mystery. In their quest for greater muscle size and the ripped, dry look that characterizes a top-level bodybuilding physique, competitors have, since the 1950's, as is generally thought, used a variety of supplemental substances, both naturally and pharmaceutically derived. After experiencing unprecedented muscle growth with anabolic steroids in the early '60s (a time when these drugs were used in larger quantities as the level of bodybuilding competition increased), bodybuilding competitors knew they had found the critical factor necessary to take them several steps higher towards physical perfection, and iron warriors the world over have not looked back since. With the 1970's ushering in a new era for competitive sporting success, with the emergence of lucrative contracts and entire careers based a upon athletic ability, a new compound found its way into the drug regimes of champions not adverse to pushing the boundaries: Growth Hormone (GH). As a hormone critical for the health and well being of all humans, Growth Hormone is needed in precise amounts for the optimal functioning of a number of physiological processes and growth of body tissues, including muscle. Generally this is achieved, resulting in growth and functioning within 'acceptable' and 'normal' parameters. However, an over or under production of GH can potentially cause serious health concerns. Excess GH, as occurs in those with Acromegaly, ultimately leads to an overgrowth of tissues and problems such insulin resistance and muscle weakness. GH-secreting tumors, occurring in childhood, can also cause excessive GH production and resu Continue reading >>

The 20 Week Hgh/igf-1/insulin Blast

The 20 Week Hgh/igf-1/insulin Blast

What I want to talk about in this post is a 20 week plan to build some new muscle. This is for the guy who has cycled steroids numerous times, has been in the gym for several years, and is not what I'd consider “new to the game”. This is for an experienced bodybuilder who wants to take his level of development to the next level. [Disclaimer: John Doe Bodybuilding is not advising anyone use ANY illegal or possibly dangerous hormones or substances under any circumstances UNLESS it is under a doctor's strict supervision.] The first thing you need to understand is that this shit gets expensive, and if you can find a cost effective way to grow then by all means do it!! One of the more cost effective ways I've found was to run IGF-1 with HGH. It allows you to keep your HGH a little lower and still gives you a nice bang, and it's faster than just HGH alone. I also find that I don't get the extreme side effects from going higher on the HGH, I can stay right at 2 iu's a day of HGH and feel good, and run the IGF-1 at 80 mcg on the days I lift. The insulin gives the peptides a real 1-2 punch, and you will be using that 4 weeks on, 4 weeks off, 4 weeks on, 4 weeks off, 4 weeks on. Unless you're like me and you're diabetic, then you just stay on insulin, LOL. The HGH will be ran at 2 iu's/day, 5 days on and 2 days off. The IGF-1 will be used 4 weeks on, 4 off, 4 weeks on, 4 off, and last 4 weeks on again. So what you will need for this 20 week cycle is 2 kits of HGH, 3 vials of IGF-1, and some fast acting insulin such as humalog or nolvalog. If you don't have access to humalog or nolvalog then humulin-R is fine, and humulin-R can be purchased over the counter without a prescription in most places. You DON'T NEED INSULIN for this, as just HGH and IGF-1 will also work exceptionall Continue reading >>

Big Fat Bastards And Insulin

Big Fat Bastards And Insulin

Nothing in this article is intended to take the place of advice from a licensed health professional. Consult a physician before taking any medication. Ask any of the elite who has become truly massive beasts which anabolic substance has had the most profound effect upon their physique and the answer from the largest mammals will unanimously be insulin. Though GH has brought to the forefront of competitive stages the well retained lean muscle mass tissue displayed beneath an onion skin exterior of today, it is the symbiotic relationship insulin has with all other physical enhancement chemistry that has made beasts what they are in the new millenium. Insulin is predominantly a storage hormone in that it initiates a cascade of cellular events that result in up-regulation of cellular nutrient content. It obviously goes without saying then that supraphysiological plasma levels of insulin result in supraphysiological cellular levels of nutrients. This in itself allows for a highly anabolic effect known as an osmotic response. A cellular osmotic response is nothing more than an increase in water and growth potentiating nutrients intracellularly that has a effect similar to increasing the amount of air in a balloon. More air in the balloon means a larger balloon. More water and proportionate growth nutrients means a larger cell. Interesting enough is the fact that this also triggers another survival mechanism that tells the stretched cell wall to increase in thickness to accommodate the osmotic response. This is due to an up-regulation in localized IGF-1 and MGF production and the synergistic response initialize. Oh ya. That is anabolism in the form of hypertrophy. Unfortunately, insulin is quite anabolic to fat cells too. Since insulin is the body’s main "storage" hormone it Continue reading >>
