BOTANICAL MUSCLE GROWTH
Fenugreek extract (trigonella foenun greacum) may not be in your current supplement toolbox, but that may change after you read this. Researchers from the Human Performance Lab at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (Belton, Texas) had 49 resistance-trained men supplement with 500 mg of a proprietary fenugreek extract [Torabolic] or a placebo and train with weights four days per week. After eight weeks, the subjects taking Torabolic had increased their strength by approximately 100% more than the placebo group, and had also lost approximately 2% more bodyfat. Results were obtained without any negative impact on anabolic hormones or clinical safety markers.
Practical Application: On training days, take two capsules of Torabolic 1-2 hours preworkout. On nontraining days, take two capsules in the morning with protein. Study funded by Indus Biotech.

HOW MUCH 500-1,000 mg 30-60 minutes before workouts or before breakfast on rest days
In research presented at the 2008 Annual Meeting of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, trained subjects took either torabolic or a placebo while following a weight-training regimen. After eight weeks, the torabolic group had gained immense strength (they doubled their one-rep max on both the bench press and the leg press) and had lost a significant amount of bodyfat. But where's the muscle building? It's there, if you examine the science. Researchers hypothesize that torabolic works by bumping up the activity of receptors located on muscle cells that are responsible for turning on genes that boost fat burning ... and muscle growth, flex
