Hungry, Hungry Hormones — Part I by John M Berardi We here at T-Nation just love them-there hormones. And if you didn't figure that out from the very name of our little publication, you might have figured it out from the dozens of hormone-related articles we've published over the years. Yep, we here at T-mag headquarters love our Testosterone, our Growth Hormone, our Insulin, and our Glucagon. In fa...

Sex Cult of Venice Beach
by The Editors Fri, May 02, 2003

Ground Breakers The Sex Cult of Venice Beach If you've been with "Testosterone Magazine" since the beginning, you know that we've posted a lot of controversial articles. We've aimed a flood light on areas that many would have preferred we'd left dark. We're downright fond of these articles but feel that new readers often inadvertently sweep them under the rug. It's only natural, that with this being our 259th on-l...

Diversity for Hypertrophy by Chad Waterbury Extreme Diversity for Extreme Muscle Growth! Hypertrophy training can be a complex task. There are so many different schools of thought that I cringe when I think about a newbie trying to sort through all the different theories. Well, guess what? I'm going to make things even more confusing! Trust me though, you'll be ecstatic if you incorporate these methods into your ne...

The End of Dietary Supplements An Interview with Attorney Rick Collins by Chris Shugart Imagine walking into your local GNC or logging on to your favorite online supplement store and finding it virtually empty.

Guest Atomic Dog Be the Hammer by Chris Shugart Disclaimer: Many won't agree with me on this topic, not even all of the T-mag staff, but that's okay. I'm not trying to convince anyone of anything, only talk about my feelings on what's ultimately a very personal subject. To me, this is not about politics. It's beyond politics. It's also not about the war in Iraq, although it's easy to draw that co...

The Big Woof The Road to 200 by RJ Elsing It's been pointed out to me that several of our readers have opinions of their own. Whoda' thunk? Anyhow, these same readers have been lobbying me for a chance to espouse their views. They say, "TC, you've got your 'Atomic Dog' column, how 'bout giving us a forum where we can disgust and anger people, too?" So, "The Big Woof" was born. It's a forum for anybody ...

Temporal Nutrition, Part II by Lonnie Lowery, Ph.D. In Temporal Nutritoin, Part I , we investigated our differences by looking at some hard data, and almost decided that there can be no sane approach that will work for every "dieter." It's true that dieting for the bodybuilder is largely self discovery. But as we duly admitted, medicine has rules that do apply to us all. Otherwise, we'd be screwed a...

The Beast Evolves How one coach went from dud to stud in 14 weeks by Christian Thibaudeau From St. Bernard to Greyhound A few years ago, another coach told me that because of my body type I could never develop a lean aesthetic physique.

Cy-BORG by Cy Willson Cy Willson was once a normal, rosy-cheeked youth who spent his days getting the heifers ready for the county fair. Then, one day, while plowing a neighbor girl in the barn, he was bitten on the ass by a radioactive cow. The bite transformed him, giving him strange powers. Most of them, like being able to sleep standing up, were pretty much useless, but others, like being able to digest p...

Build a Huge Chest in Six Weeks by Chad Waterbury Admit it. The title of this article reeled you in like a fish on a hook, didn't it? That's okay, nothing wrong with wanting big, chick-attracting pecs. But wait, you may be thinking, what's that Waterbury cat doing writing a hypertrophy-specific article? He usually writes articles about strength, not (gasp) cosmetic bodybuilding! Has he gone soft on ...
