J. Swenson review from Amazon…”I use these for weightlifting and they perform well. They are completely flat so it gives my feet a very stable resting place when performing squats, deadlifts and other heavy movements. Also a side benefit is that it saves my other shoes from taking the beating making them last much longer since soft shoes wear out very easy under heavy stress.”

The Warrior Diet

Warrior Diet by Ori Hofmekler

Along with the many benefits of leisure-class living comes obesity and its attendant ailments. In The Warrior Diet, Ori Hofmekler looks not forward but backward for a solution–to the primal habits of early cultures such as nomads and hunter-gatherers, the Greeks, and the Romans. Based on survival science, this book proposes not ordinary dietary changes but rather a radical yet surprisingly simple lifestyle overhaul.

Drawing on both scientific studies and historical data, Hofmekler argues that robust health and a lean, strong body can best be achieved by mimicking the classical warrior mode of cycling—working and eating sparingly (undereating) during the day and filling up at night. Specific elements from the Warrior Diet Nutritional Program (finding ideal fuel foods and food combinations to reduce body fat) to the Controlled Fatigue Training Program (promoting strength, speed, and resilience to fatigue through special drills), literally reshape body and mind. Individual chapters cover warrior meals and recipes; sex drive, potency, and animal magnetism; as well as personalizing the diet for women. Featuring forewords by Fit for Life author Harvey Diamond and Fat That Kills author Dr. Udo Erasmus, The Warrior Diet shows readers weary of fad diets how to attain enduring vigor, explosive strength, a better appearance, and increased vitality and health.

I think RickB owns them...I might be mistaken. Let's see if I can get him to answer.

Very secure! I have a set of these and have had for quite a while. They are the best clamps I've ever seen truly. They even work on one of my bars that has a flawed undersized end on it. The spring clamps that came with it will slide right off. These work great on it.

I don't think you'll be any less than pleased with them.

Anyone have any feedback on Labrada's HUMANOFORT?

-embryonic peptide matrix yielding naturally occurring IGF-1, IGF-2, FGF (fibroblast growth factors), NGF (Nerve Growth Factors), EGF (Epidermal Growth Factors), CTGF (Cnnective Tissue Growth Factors.

Humanofort is a powerful, pharmaceutically standardized chicken embryo extract that contains naturally occurring growth factors. These growth factors are made of clusters of low-molecular weight oligopeptides, which, by their very nature, are quickly and easily assimilated and transported to their specific receptor sites.

Each of the growth factors in Humanofort have unique, bio-stimulating properties:

* IGF-1, IGF-2 (insulin-like growth factor-1,2)- a family of peptides that play important roles in growth and development. IGF-1 mediates many of the growth-promoting effects of growth hormone, while IGF-2 is essential to liver, kidney, and brain function.
* FGF (fibroblast growth factors)- a family of peptides that play a prominent role in the development of the skeletal and nervous system.
* NGF (nerve growth factors)- peptides that promote neural cell survival.
* EGF (epidermal growth factors)- polypeptides that promote skin tissue growth and development as well as wound healing.
* CTGF (connective tissue growth factors)- peptides that promote collagen accumulation in the body. Experimental and clinical tests have revealed that Humanofort induces a highly significant increase in key adrenal hormones like 17-ketosteroid sulfates and 17-hydroxycorticosteroids. Humanofort has also been shown to increase plasma concentrations of DHEA, DHEA-S, and testosterone—all while normalizing elevated cortisol levels.

Humanofort Graph

Initial Clinical Trial Twenty-eight healthy male rugby players (age 20-32) volunteered to participate in a 21 day clinical trial. Blood was drawn and hormone levels measured before the start of the trial to establish a baseline for each of the players. After 21 days of consuming 600mg of Humanofort per day, with no modifications made to their diet or training, hormone levels were again measured in the rugby players. The results confirmed that Humanofort significantly increased key anabolic hormones while improving recovery by reducing oxidative stress. (see figure at right)

Few supplements can claim to have such a dramatic effect on testosterone levels, but only Humanofort can legitimately claim to simultaneously boost these key anabolic hormones while reducing oxidative stress and delivering these benefits via a 100% natural and safe medium.
Physician Tested

Humanofort unique properties have amazed even those in the medical community. For example, one well-respected physician in the medical and sports nutrition field, Dr. Eric Serrano, conducted a test with Humanofort on a group of his patients. The results not only confirmed many results and observations made in the Romanian studies, but also revealed some key findings. As a result of Dr. Serrano’s findings, a more comprehensive clinical study has been initiated in Romania to measure the potential benefit of Humanofort on elevated insulin and cholesterol levels. Results of this study, which will be submitted for peer-review and publishing in a prestigious scientific journal, are due for release later this year.

While Humanofort is not a drug and the statements presented here have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration, nor is Humanofort intended or claimed to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent disease, it has been successfully shown in clinical and medical applications to help:

* Raise testosterone
* Reduce cortisol
* Reduce oxidative stress/speed recovery
* Increase Androstenedione, DHEA-S, DHEA
* Raise adrenal hormone levels
* Decrease catabolism in cirrhosis patients
* Increase sexual drive
* Improve sleep
* Normalize insulin levels

So, it can truly be said that Humanofort may offer multiple benefits to users as a high potency, anabolic/anti-catabolic, adaptogenic agent.

Adverse Effects: No adverse effects have ever been observed or reported from using Humanofort. The only reported side effects include: increased sex-drive, improved sleep & mood, and increased fat loss.
Stacking & Cycling

Unlike other anabolic substances such as anabolic steroids, prohormones, and pro-steroids, Humanofort does not require cycling off for any period of time. Additionally, even if you are using other products to increase testosterone or lower estrogen, for example, virtually everyone can benefit from using Humanofort. Because of this, it is one of the very best supplements to stack with other powerful ingredients and supplements. This is the reason we include Humanofort in some of our other proven-to-work, high-potency formulas, such as Super Charge! Nitric Oxide & ReCharge! Anabolic Primer.
