@slayer87: There are spurious products available, also some are old. I would prefer you buying at Spencer or Galleria, I am sure your gym management can get you a good product at a great deal. Ozone has few good products.

But, take your own informed decision. I do not use any. Cheers!

Would really like to know about any solid reasons you have for recommending it.

If you have just started working out then you dont need creatine just yet, workout for atleast 2 months and get the hang of it. You can then re-asses your goals and see what you want to do.

As far as protein goes I have tried isopure and it's excellent but quite expensive. I have tried Dymatize elite and its not the greatest. I am currently using Bio-X Power whey and its working great and fairly well priced too. Do not depend only on supplement for your protein intake your protein should mainly come from food sources, a supplement is just that, a supplement. Goodluck.

When you do start taking creatine, let me know, I have a great stack for lean mass that is working great for me.

@Raccoon: What Is an Athletic Supporter? | eHow.com Enjoy the read.

Supporters have always been used by Indians, if you might have seen akhada, the kachha worn by the wrestlers is a perfect supporter. Now translate it into Western philosophy and they dont have the time and dexterity to wear one. So the supporter was born.

My first gym coach a 10 times Indian Heavyweight champion always asked everyone coming in the gym if he was wearing one. There are lots of complications later in the life, I recommend it to be used during any high exertion/contact exercise.

Hope this helps. Cheers!

This is for guys in Bombay.
I will be out of protein soon and I plan to buy my new tub from Alfa.

How safe and reliable are these guys? And does anyone know what brands do they stack?

Thanks

And what complications are we talking about here?

Frankly this supporter stuff tantamount to another old akhada tale of losing strength and stamina if you indulge in masturbation.

You may need a jockstrap or supporter while doing running and stuff, if your balls feel discomfort - but then pray which other animal have you seen wearing a jockstrap/supporter?
Horses?
Deers?
Cheetahs?

Surely these guys run more in a year than any human would in his entire life.


Besides, technically speaking your supporter is not doing anything at all to your balls while you are moving your arms or legs while exercising.

@alpha1: Suit yourself dude, I am no doctor and I am no coach.

While you lift weights, there is excess pressure on more than your arms and leg muscles, belts are advices for squats and jerks, I am not sure either, I have seen some weight lifters not using belts too while they cleanly go for lifts. All iron man athelets wear supporters, so do strong man completion fellows.

I never wanted to test the adage when it came to the family jewels

I hate these supporters. I would use them only in case of serious lifting (to increase hydrostatic pressure) or when I'm injured. What I think these supporters are more of hindrance as they do not let some of body's unique supporting muscles develop to the fullest.

Natural Bodybuilding - No way!

Professional Bodybuilding - YES! Almost 99% of all Gym coaches here in India and almost every professional bodybuilder out there take shitload of anabolic steroids. Here in India these guys take their juice without any proper knowledge. Hair Loss is one of the major side effect of this (apart from potential renal, liver and heart complications)

WOW!

You wear lifting belts to compress your spine, which allows you to lift heavier, as well as give stability to spine, while doing overhead pressing movements.
While doing squats and deadlifts it allows you to exert more internal pressure due to again - compression of spine as well as restrcition on abdomen cavity.

What has that all got to do with your balls dangling down being "supported" by a skimpy piece of cloth?

Even if I go in your line of reasoning, how is wearing a supporter going to help your "family jewels"?

And let us steer clear of confusions regarding supporter and lifting belts.
Lifting belts are worn on waist - exactly like a normal belt albeit pretty wide and strong.
Supporters are like thongs (of course not as delicate), with a pouch for your testicles.
