Hey Will. Hope this message finds you well today. I am 56 years of age, a retired military disabled vet and have been training since 1982. Near the end of last year, I had to deal with some prostate cancer. I had 6 weeks of radiation therapy and had 160 radioactive implants inserted in my prostate. Had a couple infections during recovery and also took a shot to re3duce my testosterone. Pre surgery, my score was 856mg/ml. As of 3 weeks ago, it was 10ng/ml. Went through bad mood swings and gainded some real fat, about 10 lbs worth from inactivity and the shot. Because of the infections and the healing time, I missed months of training. I hooked up to your site a while back and get a lot out of them. Like many others, I had no response to creatine that made me desire to keep trying new delivery systems. Then I saw your video and gave it a try. I used extremely hot water and patience. Talk about a difference. All that said, I have been using it with NO Explode, Ribose, BCAA’s, L-Glutamine and the product “FIT” by MHP. After the first week back, I almost quit altogether. Sick and sore like mad. And I know how to come back from a layoff. But I hung in and it’s been 9 straight weeks of training and man it’s going great. I guess my theory is that maybe it’s possible that certain supplements work better at certain times for certain age groups. I know exactly how creatine works and never use it to stimulate my CNS. I learned from years of lifting that it takes patience to see if certain stacks, timing, amount, etc…work for someone. In 6 months my Urologist is putting me on test therapy. I have no desire to use orals. But next to injections, which type do you believe works best? Patches, creams, ect…? I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks Will.
Synthol is composed of 85% medium-chain triglyceride oils (a fatty acid), % lidocaine (painkiller), and 5 benzyl alcohol. The preparation is injected deep into the muscle where it is encapsulated between the fascicles (bundles of muscle fibers) . With repeated injections, a larger volume of oil builds up inside the muscle, expanding its size like a balloon filling up with air. About 30% of what is injected is metabolized by the body. The other 70% remains lodged in the muscle where it breaks down very slowly over three to five years. There seems to be some issue of debate among bodybuilders as to whether or not Synthol actually lasts this long, and some believe it is even longer. Chris Clark, its inventor, is convinced that it somehow leads to permanent muscle growth in the effected areas, though even he is unsure of the mechanisms that would make this possible. Synthol users report amazing pumps while training, though this could be a result of the extra pressure of the accumulated oil.
