I’m going back to chicago for a visit and i was thinking about picking upp some supplements. Any reckomendations to something natural (due to regular drugtesting) for strength gains that i can’t get in good ol norway?
We do have some creatine, but im not familiar with BETA-7. Can i get it in stores? I’m only there for 2 weeks and wont be able to order anything.
I’ll just google it for some more info
sorry you have to order it.
Shoot. I have some american friends in wisconsin i can hassle to order it for me. I’m taking it as you’ve tried it?
Any other products that can be bought in stores to recommend? Anyone, i dont know if it’s taboo at the forum to speak of other products then Biotest’s, but if it’s not, please share them!
I would recommend you go to Kuma’s Corner (Belmont and California are the cross streets) for one of their burgers while you’re in Chicago. The burger with bacon and a fried egg on a pretzel roll is a brilliant creation. Plus, it’s a good atmosphere if you like metal bands and Belgian beers.
As for supplements, I can’t recommend creatine enough. It’s almost dumb to say that these days, given all the studies that have been done. But I think it’s wonderful stuff. Beta Alanine does, it would seem, help. BCAAs and protein are surely supplements you can get at home, yes?
If you can find Flameout, I think it’s a wonderful product. I think the higher DHA content is nothing short of a stroke of genius (that makes me feel like a genius).
I’ve been using Rhodiola recently, and I like it. I bought a big tub of it from another supplier, but I’ll probably get Biotest’s stuff when I run out. I just have too many powders these days…
Shoot… I’m trying to think of where you should even go in Chicago to get stuff. I always mail order my supplements, so I never bought any at stores when I was living there.
I know there’s a strip of supplement shops up in Boys’ Town (which is also true of The Castro here in SF, of course), but I can’t think of anyplace I’d recommend shopping. I think a lot of it is GNC and Vitamin Shoppe, and those places are kinda expensive. Maybe your friends from Wisco know a good discount supplier?
Anyway - enjoy your visit. Chicago in the summer is fun as hell!
Thanks. Non of them really know anything other than gnc. I lived in wisc last as a foreign exchange student to get some variaty in my wrestling, but all they ever used was no xplde… Didnt really like any of the products I’ll try to push some of them to find something for em
It seems far easier to just order through this site and have the product delivered where ever you’ll be staying.
Doubt they’ll deliver to a hotel, but i’m not going to make a bigger fuzz of this. I’ill figure something out and if anyone feels there is a product that i will have good use of, just scream!
