T Nation

New Biotest Store

I’m loving the new layout!! Great work computer guys.

Now that there is a Gear section, I’m REALLY hoping we’ll see some Biotest shaker bottles, baseball hats, or something else! Haha I already own most of the T-shirt designs so I want something new.

Good work guys, much improved.

Agree. Nice clean look. Where is the swag?

Under “Gear”.

I agree, new layout is big pimpin’.

Sorry. I meant new swag. T-Nation on everything.

I am still hoping for women’s shirts

maybe even a sport bra or boy shorts

Back in the day, they used to send you a t-shirt, or a naglene bottle, and a copy of the print version of T-Mag.

We have 2 of the bottles, and pretty much all of the t-shirts.

Cool new layout!

I don’t know what it says about me when I saw Gear and, for an instant, thought it meant steroids.

Reading this, I was wondering why T-Nation/Biotest doesn’t sell branded water bottles. Probably because they couldn’t sell enough to justify buying a small quantity of them.

Then it hit me: a number of people are going to be looking for new BPA free water bottles in the near future. Now is the time, if anything.

Agreed, layout is MUCH improved.

However, why did the ZMA description change from “Anabolic Mineral Support Formula” to “Metabolic Mineral Support Formula”?

Anabolic is far cooler.

Deja vu - I swear this layout was here a week ago.

Edit:
Ah, yup - I’m not crazy.

Anabolic = Steroids

Steroids = Bad

Anabolic = Bad

Quite true, steroids will kill you right quick.

But, it still says “Anabolic” on the bottle. Or is that being changed too?

“Grow!” being changed to “Metabolic Drive” made sense, but “Anabolic” to “Metabolic”? I’ll be calling bullshit on that one.

I want:
Water Bottles
Shakers
Sample Packs
*So I don’t have to buy 4 flavors of Surge/Metabolic Drive to determine which one I like.

Yeah, and I want the women to get sports bras and boy shorts too… then post pics.

Yes, but if Metabolic Drive came in a pink bottle, I’d still use it. Se7en is advertised for ladies, but I’d totally use that (haven’t yet). If they can sell more product while keeping the focus on innovative and quality products, all the power to them.

Also, my mom was having some trouble sleeping, so I suggested she try ZMA. Obviously when I showed her the bottle, she kind of freaked out until I explained that it was just some specific minerals and vitamins (in one awesome package!). She liked it after that.

EXACTLY.

My wife saw my bottle of Biotest ZMA a couple years ago, and said “doesn’t anabolic mean steroids”?

After I finished beating her with a frying pan, I explained to her what the term anabolic means, and how ignorant anyone is who thinks that it’s synonymous with steroids or somehow inherently bad.

Now we have 1 less ‘anabolic’ ignorant person in the world. I’m not in favor of reinforcing stupidity and misinformation by changing the wording of things in order not to ‘frighten’ people.

However, it’s not my business that’s on the line, so Biotest is free to do as they wish.

Yes. women’s gear would rock.

And I do miss the days when they’d send you a free Metabolic Drive bar or something with your order. Cool new store layout, though.
