GP MENT is a product containing the hormone Trestolone Acetate (7 alpha-Methyl-19-nortestosterone). General steroid potency is usually increased with 7-methylation, which is a trait that is well illustrated with MENT. When methylation increases steroid potency it is usually due to one or two things, most notable being the increased resistance to being metabolized by the liver, or reduced affinity for constructive binding proteins. In the case of MENT, we see a drug relatively fast metabolic breakdown, but that doesn’t bind to SHBG. The reduced binding to SHBG is the reason that MENT becomes a much more potent steroid. When first studied, research showed that MENT could be 3.5-23 times more anabolic than testosterone, yet was only 3-6 times more androgenic. When a study was later done on primates, MENT was shown to have 10 times more anabolic potency than testosterone while having much lower effects on the prostate. In a study to show how well MENT binds to the androgen receptor, it was discovered that this drug binds to the receptor more strongly than both testosterone and nandrolone. Another study looked at the ability for MENT to restore sexual behavior in men suffering from symptoms of low testosterone, which is one of the main objectives of androgen replacement therapy. During this study, MENT was shown to be just as effective as testosterone therapy for these purposes. If ever marketed for use, MENT will be aromatized by the body and will cause synthetic estrogen buildup which will carry a high level of biological activity. This means that gynecomastia can be a problem, as well as other estrogen related side effects which can include excess water retention causing the user to have a bloated look without much definition to the muscle structure and can also lead for excess fat buildup to occur. Because of this, users of MENT will most likely want to run some sort of anti-estrogen during their cycle to keep levels down. MENT has not yet been developed for use, so it’s not known what the doses will be. Due to the study results so far, it is suspected that a low dose will be sufficient due to the fact that this drug has been shown to be several times more potent than testosterone.
I as talking to 2 of my buddies today about all the pro and anti Trump news circulating on mainstream and social media. Somehow we veered off into false flag alien invasions and Steven Greer's last Youtube video. What I told my friends next represents my older and wiser outlook, which I guess can come across as jaded. I told them both, "disbelieve everything you see and hear first". I never received a response back, so I'm not sure what they thought about the remark- but I analized it right after.
I've trained myself to unravel everything I've been programmed to believe, deconstruct all the lectures, the videos, the religious stories, the pages in those history books- all of it. I've learned to put data under a microscope, and look closer at what I'm presented. This practice has allowed me to separate myself from what I am observing, and thus release emotion from data. It's allowed me to study many religions, understand many cultures, examine multiple mindsets and process many possibilities.
This process has been integral for my fitness career. I no longer subscribe to gurus and masters. It's no longer "resistance" training versus "crossfit", or "HIIT" training versus "steady state cardio". It's now functional training AND calisthenics, agility training AND plyometrics, kettle bell AND battlerope exercises. The tools in my tool belt are limitless, because I "disbelieve" that there is only 1 tool for the job. So next time you hear a "fact", begin your thought process by disbelieving the "fact". See where your disbelief leads you.
So we can't stop the eyes glued to the phones, looking for digital hybrid monsters with unique powers. We can't stop the children and adults, wandering with a purpose, street corner to street corner. I've observed this phenomenon for the last couple of days, and my paranoid mind can't help to think that DARPA's psy ops program, hidden as a video game, is in full swing.. beginning the end for us, absorbing us into the virtual world where society as we know it ends. But- I had a conversation with my adult friend, (who we will call "Joe" for now, as he doesn't want to be identified to the world for possible ridicule), and I may have stumbled upon something huge.
I questioned my very adult pal Joe, trying to understand why he would take his 2 kids and his wife outside, at all times of the day, all armed with individual cell phones and determined to find invisible creatures that don't actually exist... "why are you playing Pokémon GO bro..?". He told me, "you know it actually has me and my family all hanging together outside, like actually together...". At that point I had what can only be described as an epiphany. I continued my line of questions. "Does it keep track of your movements...?". Joe replied, "yeah, keeps track of your miles walked". My interest grew deeper. "So it actually keeps track of your distance traveled?". Joe said, "yup, and what's cool about it is that you can actually find rare Pokémons depending on your locations, like if you walk through a hiking trail or on the beach there's more of a chance on catching special rare Pokémons...". My epiphany was complete, as I begun to see green 1's and 0's like Keanu Reeves- but not in the Bill and Ted movie. Pokémon GO... was actually... a ... secret fitness game! Stay with me...
Pokémon GO makes you walk OUTSIDE to gather these monsters.
Pokémon GO doesn't allow you to DRIVE and find these creatures, forcing you to actually WALK (old school style).
Pokémon GO smartly KEEPS TRACK of the distances you walk.
PokémonGO gives you rare monster finds in places like the PARK, HIKING TRAILS and BEACHES.
Pokémon GO then makes you battle the creatures you locate and capture... in a GYM!
Yes, yes... I recognize your hesitation and confusion from the evidence I've presented, but ask yourself this... when was the last time you've seen so many people outside? Walking! Together. Having fun finding virtual nothingness that's somethingness???! Well Nintendo, do not fear.. your secret is safe with me.
A new study found a dramatic increase in the number of adolescents undergoing "Tommy John" surgery to repair a pitching-related elbow injury in recent years, outstripping growth among major league pitchers.
The study, performed by researchers at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC), was published in the January online issue of the American Journal of Sports Medicine.
"Everybody who follows baseball is worried about the rise in Tommy John procedures in the major leagues, and rightly so," said study leader Christopher S. Ahmad, MD, professor of orthopedic surgery at CUMC, head team physician for the New York Yankees and chief of sports medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia. "But we should also be worried about the 6 million children and young adults in the US who play this game and are at risk for significant pitching-related injuries. We need to determine why these injuries are so common and what can be done to prevent them."
Tommy John surgery, named for the Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher who first had the procedure in 1974, involves replacing a torn or ruptured ligament in the elbow known as the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) with a tendon from another part of the body.
Analyzing data from the New York Statewide Planning and Research Cooperative System, the researchers found that 444 patients underwent surgery to repair the UCL between 2002 and 2011. The median age of the patients, mostly male, was 21. During that period, the total volume of UCL surgeries increased nearly 200 percent, while the number of UCL reconstructions per 100,000 people tripled from 0.15 to 0.45. Almost all of the growth occurred in two age groups, 17- to 18-year-olds and 19- to 20-year-olds. Patients who are white and had private insurance were 25 times more likely to undergo UCL construction than blacks and Hispanics with government insurance.
Tommy John surgery has a high success rate, but full recovery can take a year or more. In many cases, UCL injuries can be treated effectively with rest, physical therapy, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications. While the increase in UCL reconstructions among professional athletes has been well documented, few studies have looked at the incidence among younger, non-professional athletes.
While the study did not address reasons for the increase in UCL reconstructive surgery, Dr. Ahmad suspects a major factor is the fiercely competitive culture of youth baseball, which encourages talented players to throw more frequently, with greater intensity, and at a younger age. "Whatever the cause, we now know for certain that more kids are getting injured," he said. "We should be asking ourselves what we can do to prevent these injuries."

You should be aware of three metabolic pathways in your body. The ATP-PC system is primarily activated during short, intense resistance training routines, such as a squat. The glycolytic system is activated when doing activities such as sprinting. And the oxidative system is activated during activities such as running a marathon. Strengthened all three of these metabolic systems and weaponize the body!
“People’s natural inclination is to go into fight or flight mode during rest periods in an intense workout—they breathe shallow and quick,” says Rob MacDonald, training director of Gym Jones. “If you can learn to breathe deeply between your sets, you’re better able to relax and oxygenate your body and your recovery is much more effective.”
SAN DIEGO — The fitness benefits of CrossFit, a trademarked fitness program and competitive sport, match those of a generic circuit-training program in women, a new head-to-head comparison shows.
The only significant difference between the two programs was a greater maximum bench press weight for the circuit-trained women.
But this finding, along with some trends toward differences in other parameters, suggest interesting contrasts, researcher Paige Wessel, from West Kentucky University in Bowling Green, told Medscape Medical News.
"With circuit training, strength improved more," said Wessell, who trains using a CrossFit program. But if you want endurance, "I'd say do CrossFit."
Wessel and three of her colleagues from West Kentucky University presented findings from four separate posters here at the American College of Sports Medicine 62nd Annual Meeting.
CrossFit has become popular in recent years, but few scientific studies have examined its effects on fitness. Wessel and her colleagues could find none that compared it with older circuit-training programs.
In both CrossFit and circuit training, participants complete a series of movements, particularly weightlifting and bodyweight exercises, in rapid succession.
CrossFit draws from gymnastics, power lifting, and other disciplines, and provides variety, with different modes, loads, and duration for each workout. Often participants complete the workouts as quickly as possible, emphasizing power, or the ability to move a load quickly.
Circuit training is a fitness approach that involves a specific work-to-rest ratio and emphasizes cardiovascular health and strength, or the ability to move a large load. Resistance loads are frequently lighter than in CrossFit in later stages.
To compare the two, Wessell and her colleagues recruited 23 active women who had not previously used either training method. The average age of the study participants was 29 years.
They randomly assigned nine women to CrossFit and 14 women to circuit training.
Both groups trained 3 days a week for 10 weeks. The CrossFit women used the company's Workout of the Day, and the circuit-trained women used a program designed by a researcher.
Improvements in a variety of parameters were seen in both groups over the study period.
There were no significant differences in bone mineral density between the two groups.
In the circuit-trained women, there was an increase in body mass, although percent body fat remained the same. This suggests that these women gained muscle.
Although this finding was not statistically significant, the researchers speculate that it could account for a greater increase in upper body strength in the circuit-trained women.
Because CrossFit participants typically don't practice the bench press and don't do much resistance training at the beginning of the program, improvements in strength, power, and agility could be attributed to "neuro-muscular adaptations," the researchers report.
Larger sample sizes might provide the statistical power to confirm these findings, they point out.
There was another important difference between the two training groups. "A lot of women enjoyed CrossFit more because they did different exercises each day," Wessel explained. However, the researchers did not specifically measure exercise enjoyment.
The two training groups appeared to differ in another important way, said Wessel. "A lot of women enjoyed CrossFit more because they did different exercises each day," she said, although the researchers did not specifically measure exercise enjoyment.
"These are good results, and similar to what we see in some of the other literature," said Yuri Feito, PhD, from Kennesaw State University in Georgia, who has coached CrossFit.
But the results would be more meaningful if the researchers had standardized the time and energy expenditure of exercise in the two groups, Dr Feito told Medscape Medical News.
He also questioned whether increased muscle could account for differences in strength between the groups, because the researchers did not show that the increased lean mass was localized to body parts responsible for particular exercises.
"I think the study has a lot of merit, we just have to compare apples with apples," he said.
This study was supported by a Western Kentucky University College of Health and Human Services faculty research grant. Ms Wessel and Dr Feito have disclosed no relevant financial relationships.
