    any comments or advice on the benefits of NITRO or TRIBULUS for gaining muscle mass?
    Pros or Cons?....
    concerns?
    frequency?
    I don't know much about either one, but both products have been recommended to me.
    Any information or advice on usage, dosage, benefits or concerns would be really appreciated!

    Neither will give you mass.

    Tribulus did nothing for me. And it's advertised as a testosterone booster anyways. I've been taking Twinlab Nitric Fuel for a few months now and I like it. Again, it doesn't give you mass. It just maintains the pump in your muscles.

    From looking at your pics, I'd recommend staying away from supplements; except for protein powders and meal replacement powders. You've got some decent muscle tone already. And you're pretty lean. So any gains in muscle mass will be more obvious.

    Just keep working out hard and increase the intensity. And eat! If you don't eat right or don't eat enough, you won't gain the mass you're looking for.

    Can't speak about NITRO but I've found I can lift harder and heavier when using tribulus - and I'm a hard gainer. After using tribulus a few weeks, I notice more definition as well.

    I haven't noticed any downside but my understanding is that you shouldn't go more than a month or so without cycling off.

    Other than some protein, some weight gainer, multi-vitamin, and maybe some creatine, you should spend your money on good solid food.

    I see that often, but I never see specifics. The key to gaining mass is eating. Well... eating what? Protein, ok... got that. Like what? What specifically?

    Chicken breast?
    Tuna?
    Steak?
    Eggs? Raw, fried?
    Sausage Egg Biscuit?
    Cheese Steak?
    Beef/Bean Burrito?

    What exactly are we talking about here?

    What if I don't cook? Where can I go to get all this food everyone's talking about?

    Well, you have to learn to cook. Not like a gourmet chef or anything. If you have a stove top, or oven, or BBQ grill, then you're all set.

    I primarily eat for nutrition, so my meals tend to be bland. I cook chicken breasts in bulk in the oven. I sprinkle some Mrs Dash to add some flavor. And I eat with rice. Plain, but nutritious. icon_biggrin.gif

    Like I said, you don't need to be a chef. Just learn how long to cook meat thoroughly. You can probably look for easy recipes on the net, if you prefer meals with more flavor.
