Ok, I'm not
proud of this list...
it dates back a good 25 years now...but these
are the 5 STUPIDEST supplements I've been dumb
enough to take over the course of my training
career (I had to stop myself at only 5...;).
fell for this one in college. It was supposed
to increase testosterone levels, and they were
offering a free bottle when you paid $5 shipping...so
naturally, I recruited 5 friends to each order
a bottle for me so I could get a bunch of it
for cheap. Useless stuff. After the first bottle,
I just threw the rest of it away.
2. Hot Stuff
of the first "shotgun" formulas on
the market in the early 90's. Their idea was
to throw in everything that was supposed to
have any effect at all into one big jug and
hope for the best. Turned out it tasted like
gasoline and was basically expensive vitamin
3. Liquid Creatine
stuff was supposed to increase the absorption
of creatine into your body using liquid delivery.
Nope. It came in the form of foul-tasting orange
goo and it didn't get me any results at all
(not even as good as plain old creatine monohydrate).
creatine degrades fairly rapidly in liquid...the
company said they stabilized it with "proprietary
technology" but something tells me they
were lying...ah yes, common sense. That must
powdered organs. The idea with those is that
they're supposed to improve the function of
the similar organ in your body (i.e. powdered
heart improves your heart). Too bad I didn't
start with powdered brain on that one... ;)
this one was stupid not because it didn't work...(it
did)...it's because of HOW I used it and the
side effects I got from using it. I took it
as a fat-burning supplement stack (Dymetadrine
25 was the brand) and found it to be effective
problem was it KILLED my sleep...it would sometimes
take me hours to fall asleep, which is not good
when you're on limited food intake and training
harder because the supplements amped you up.
I stopped taking it well before ephedrine was
tried a lot of other supplements over the years...some
good, some not so good...but those stand out
as the stupidest to me.
