THE EFFECTS OF SUPRAPHYSIOLOGIC DOSES OF TESTOSTERONE
ON MUSCLE SIZE AND STRENGTH IN NORMAL MEN
Basically, using four groups of men, in a blind placebo experiment,the authors show quite clearly that men given testosterone and basically told to just sit on their ass. Got stronger, gained more lean muscle, and lost more fat than men given a placebo who worked out with weights 3x a week.
Oh and please,
i'm not really interested in arguing the data with anyone.
How come they didn't use pro athletes?
How come they didn't use hardcore powerlifters?
Did they eat enough protein?
Did they train in the summer or winter?
How come the groups that lifted didn't use 5/3/1 or HTS or whatthehell ever?
if you have a problem with the study, go do your own.... and get it prior reviewed and accepted into the NEJM and then we can argue.
oh yeah, drugs work.
Does anyone really think the NEJM "wanted" to publish this????????????????
I mean its basically saying your stupid if your an athlete and not using.
