any interesting performance enhancement from the fluxocilan Nolte ?
(just curious, ahem)
Well I feel better now and it did get rid of the inflammation it was treating mostly
Though other than that, no improvement. Though then , they may work as an appetite suppressant as they have to be taken on empty stomach again so they cut out some snacking so should be a little bit lighter and at 4 a day for 2 weeks, that means blocks of available eating time is limited
Thought this was interesting interview with Victor Conte. Testosterone micro-dosing and 4:1 T/E is the new 50% Hematocrit (or not so new given that it's a 2015 interview)
Because of the BALCO scandal, WADA, USADA and other anti-doping agencies changed the testing protocol. And any substance similar in structure to testosterone was banned, without tests having to provide scientific support or evidence.
In essence, Conte said, “There no longer needs to be any scientific evidence showing it promotes protein synthesis or muscle growth and they charge you.”
He added: “So instead of guys continuing to modify these anabolic steroids in different ways to stay one step ahead like they were doing, they could no longer do that. Because they will bust you because it’s similar in structure. And let me repeat: All anabolic steroids are similar to testosterone. Therefore, they went old-school: They started using fast-acting testosterone, microdosing with testosterone.”
Conte called it “an epidemic of testosterone.” He said that “people are still looking for designers that don’t exist, and instead, everyone’s flying under the 4:1 T/E ratio (testosterone/epitestosterone ratio).”
if you were king for a day what would you do with anti-doping? That was a specific question he asked me.”
Conte complied with Pound’s request. He named the following: coach Alberto Salazar and distance runners Galen Rupp and Mo Farah; sprinter Carmelita Jeter and hurdler Jason Richardson under John Smith; and Jamaican speedsters Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake and their coach, Glen Mills.
“Here’s what I specifically advised that they do: Go back to the (urine) samples that were collected that are frozen for these athletes, you take a look at these performances, as an example, you isolate Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake,” Conte recalled. “You look at what they did in 2008. You look at what they did again at the world championships in Berlin in 2009, when the world records were set that still stand, both the 100 and 200 meters by Usain Bolt, and look at these times when Carmelita Jeter was running 10.64 (seconds, in the 100, at the 2009 Shanghai Golden Grand Prix) and all these extremely crazy times, and the same thing with Mo Farah . . .
“. . .Collect their samples before these championship races where they ran very fast and you do the carbon isotope ratio test for synthetic testosterone.”
As planned, Pound submitted the just-cited information to David Howman, WADA’s director general, stating, in the words of Conte, that “they could target these frozen urine samples and they could do these tests.”
The idea was rejected.
“Basically, Dick Pound was told, ‘Are you kidding me? You think we want to destroy the entire Olympic movement?’ We’re not going to do those damn testings. So they showed no interest whatsoever in this,’ ” Conte recalled.
For Conte, WADA’s all-out rejection of what he proposed was hardly surprising.
“These guys are politicians,” he said. “I think they are more concerned with the money they raise for advertising dollars that they get for the Olympic Games, and that’s what they are concerned about. And I believe that in the beginning the entire reason that WADA was founded (in 1999) was an appeasement of the sponsors, trying to protect their investment dollars.
“They wanted to make sure that these athletes weren’t going to test positive so they were the ones that requested when they were asked for sponsorship money to have testing. That’s why WADA was founded, in my opinion.”
From top to bottom, its always about protecting the cash cow..
