Consumer Review: I've Tried Ultimate Performance Factor And It Gave Significant Results, But The Stuff Made Me Kinda Fat.

Hi, I am 20 years old and I've been bodybuilding for 3 years now. I am an ectomorph and both my parents are not big. Therefore I am physically and genetically challenged in terms of building muscle. I've tried Champion's Choice's product called Ultimate Performance Factor and it gave significant results, but the stuff made me kinda fat. I want a product that really increases lean muscle size and even increase intracellular water retention. With that in mind, can anyone tell me which brand or which supplement worked best for you or someone you know? I prefer something made by Champion's Choice.

I believe in what the guy have just say cause I am now facing the same problem. I am 5'11" but I weight 230lb which is very unusual for an asian size. I have try to cut down my weight, but when I go into the gym I prone to carry very heavy and tend to gain more mass (believe or not my weight shoot up from 200 to 220 within a month). Beside I do not take many supplement like most of them did. The only supplement I use is B-Complex and Pro Complex from Optimum Nutrition.

First of all, you are starting off in the wrong direction. Everyone getting into bodybuilding these days is so concerned about what supplements to take that they forget the most important ingredient: DIET! Diet is about 80% of whatever you want to do in bodybuilding.

In your case, you sound just like I was when I first got into bodybuilding. I read a lot of books and spoke with several bodybuilding champions. What you need to do is boost your food intake. You have to eat at least 6 times a day, but 7 is better. Every two hours eat a combination of good complex carbohydrates and protein. You have to eat at least 1.5 times your body weight in grams of protein. That means if you weigh 150 lbs. you must take in at least 200 grams of protein a day. Always keep your food clean, and binge once in awhile. You deserve it if your diet is rock solid.

As for supplements, use EAS Creatine Monohydrate, Vanadyl Sulfate, and HMB. It is expensive, but if you are serious about bodybuilding save up a couple $100 bucks and try these three supplements. You'll be amazed at the results. You can find them at your local GNC. And pyramid your workouts. That is the best way to increase size and stay hard.
