WTF is Myostatin Supossed to do

Maybe I’m the only retard in here, but I have no idea what this stuff is supposed to do. Muscle gains without work? Better muscle gains? More actual muscle? What? Let’s clear it up right now, please!

Myostatin is a gene in most every animal(there are some exceptions, i.e. belgian blue cattle) that controls the growth of muscle. It decreases the growth of muscle.

Have you read the two big articles on it at T-mag? Part II is in the current issue with a link to Part I. Both are by Tim Patterson.
