Ergo-Log Excerpt: Mix of propionyl-L-carnitine and L-arginine improves erection

Give men with erection problems 250 mg daily of propionyl-L-carnitine [structural formula shown below] together with 2500 mg L-arginine and their sex life will improve. Researchers at the Sapienza University of Rome discovered this when they did experiments with 54 men aged between 35 and 75.

Most of the test subjects indicated that they would like to continue using the supplement. Few side effects were observed.

"In addition to first-line treatment in selected patients, the formulation tested may have a role as adjuvant therapy", the researchers conclude.

December 2018 Workout Plan - Suspension Trainer and Occlusion Band Work Focus

Twitter: @helpYOUgetGAINS

I plan to use the below Kaatsu (blood flow restriction) method for the suspension trainer workout days. Along with the Squat-Row-Calf Raise and Squat-Reverse Fly-Calf Raise combination  on those days I will do strength band chest presses, bicep curls and tricep pressdowns.



Kaatsu bench press: more pecs with less weight

1.    The subjects trained 6 days a week and did 2 bench press sessions every day: one in the morning and one in the afternoon.

2.    Each session the men did 3 sets at 30 percent of the weight at which they could just manage 1 rep. 

3.    They did 30 reps in the first set, followed by 2 sets of 15 reps.

What is the best natural supplement to lower cholesterol?

Niacin. This B vitamin, taken in very large doses (1 to 3 grams a day), is actually a drug and is sold by prescription as well as over the counter (OTC). It lowers LDL (“bad”) cholesterol by up to 30 percent, but unlike statins, it also substantially boosts HDL (“good”) cholesterol and reduces triglycerides.

Thursday, November 22, 2018 Excerpt: Kaatsu bench press: more pecs with less weight

  1. The subjects trained 6 days a week and did 2 bench press sessions every day: one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
  2. Each session the men did 3 sets at 30 percent of the weight at which they could just manage 1 rep. 
  3. They did 30 reps in the first set, followed by 2 sets of 15 reps.

If you reduce the blood supply to your arms with bands and then do bench presses with minimal weights, you can build up considerable strength and muscle mass. Researchers at the University of Tokyo did experiments with 10 young men.

They got 5 men aged between 23 and 38 to do bench presses for 2 weeks with bands around their arm muscles. A similar group did normal training. The subjects trained 6 days a week and did 2 bench press sessions every day: one in the morning and one in the afternoon.

Each session the men did 3 sets at 30 percent of the weight at which they could just manage 1 rep. They did 30 reps in the first set, followed by 2 sets of 15 reps.

The figures below show the results from scans. They record how the muscle mass in the triceps brachii and the pectoralis major increased by 8 and 16 percent respectively in the Kaatsu group [black circles]. The increase in muscle mass in the control group was nil.
