Arnold Classic 2012

By Patrick Arnold

Last weekend I attended the Arnold Classic Fitness Expo – just like I have every year for the last 15 years.  Boy has that show changed.  The first several years the expo was primarily a bodybuilding event and it was more or less a freak show with ripped bodybuilders everywhere and tons and tons of […]

One man can make a difference

By Patrick Arnold

I have good news to tell everyone! Considering how our nutritional supplement industry has been under unprecedented assault here in the states with the FDA’s intolerant and strong handed stance on issues, issues that intend to dismantle what our whole industry is based upon ( a law called DSHEA), I find this recent small development […]

Where’s The Beef?

By Patrick Arnold

Lately I have noticed a lot of talk about Beef Protein Isolate. Several companies are promoting products that supposedly contain protein extracted from beef in the form of powders and in one case a liquid. Having been in the industry for quite some time this is not something new – products purported to contain beef […]

JC Romero….Exonerated??

By Patrick Arnold

The ex-Philadelphia Phillies pitcher JC Romero and his attorneys recently settled a lawsuit (I assume with Vitamin Shoppe and GNC) regarding a product I once sold called 6-oxo extreme. You can read the New York Daily News Article here http://nydn.us/y9ybsW I don’t want to waste my time going into the background of this case. And […]

7-keto DHEA and 7-hydroxy DHEA to become illegal in United Kingdom

By Patrick Arnold

In what has all the hallmarks of a purely political decision that is about as medically misguided as can be, the United Kingdom is strongly considering controlling the non-hormonal fat loss / immune system boosting supplements 7-keto DHEA and 7-hydroxy DHEA under the misuse of drug act of 1971. Without going into the exact legal […]

He (and she) man squirrel from the great white north

By Patrick Arnold

The artic ground squirrel is an amazing creature.  Recently it was the first species of animal that was successfully induced into hibernation, and then back out of hibernation, and then back into hibernation.  Now that’s pretty cool – and hibernation is pretty cool – but what’s really cool (actually I should say cold) is the […]

Anabolic Steroids and Lactating

By Patrick Arnold

Those who read my blog who follow the bodybuilding drug culture will understand what I am talking about and the ones that do not are probably laughing.  Those people should stop reading here because the rest of this is going to be kinda technical. There is much debate in the steroid community about why certain […]

Sports Performance Enhancement – Hillbilly Style!

By Patrick Arnold

David L. Warner Jr., 36, recently won the Jessamine County Fair Demolition Derby small car division.  After receiving his trophy he was approached by some policemen who had another trophy to present to him – a pair of handcuffs.  It appears that there were many reports that David was perhaps a bit too reckless and […]

Look at your hand…..again

By Patrick Arnold

Last month I wrote a blog on what is known as the 2D/4D ratio.  This is the ratio of your ring finger to your index finger and it is believed to be influenced by the amount of testosterone that was present in the womb during your prenatal development stage.  Masculine traits such as a propensity […]
