This years Pro Season starts with a bang as all ways with the Arnold Classic. It is gonna be very interesting to seeing that last years champ isn't on the competitors list. The list includes some of the bigger names in bodybuilding that didn't compete last year and if all bring good packages this will be great start to the competitive season.

Allot of online BUZZ about the Arnold Armature this year with Andrew Jacked competing in the contest - (as of this writing he's scheduled to compete). The guy looks very good, but everybody looks good by themselves. He has all the tools to be very, very hard to beat Pro if his body keeps trending the direction it has for the last few years. Slow and steady. Good luck all those competing - Lets Have a Great Show!!!

Ouestion #1 of the Month
BBZone Q&A February 2022 - Gaining Muscle Part1.

Question: Why is it that I can't gain weight? I have include my current diet and training program in this email. Please help me because I really love training.
M. Jones

Answer: When we look at your training routine there are a couple of problems that stand out to us. The first is that it to long and extensive. You have way to many sets in certain areas and not enough in others. What we want to do is balance your training over a split system of four days a week. This program offers total body coverage and allows ample time for recuperation. By looking at your routine we can figure out that it was fashioned after some of the stuff you see published in magazines. We been saying this for some time but if needs to be said again in your case( there are probably many other to) that most workouts printed in magazines don't work for the average bodybuilder. There are to many set, to many isolation movements, and way to many machines. Machines don't build coordination, muscle balance and conditioning any where near the level of free weight training. So follow your routine for 6 weeks religiously and we'll check in and see how you're doing.

Bodybuilding - News & Observations


Here we GO! We got a new bodybuilding season getting ready to start in MARCH! We will get a good guide as to what the power that be are looking for in a physique as of 2022! Really hope we start to pull away from the blocky and squat look that has been dominating in past contest! NO I am not looking for some fucking string bean to win any damn show, but I am not looking some dude 5 feet nothing be winning a show weighing 270 pounds and having trouble breathing just standing still. Some people have asked me if I want height or weight limits - FUCK NO! That shit is gonna kill bodybuilding-light (Classic Physique). These judges KNOW what to look and just have not been doing it. They talk about aesthetics, balance and all that other shit but haven't judge that way since the late 80's early 90's! So we will see what direction this B takes very soon!!!

Kinda fascinating that allot of guys are going on and off their little ANDRO diets lately! Oh I am sorry - HRT Therapy, what a crook of BULLSHIT! Had a friend of mine who was working out with me ask me what doctor I was using fro my therapy, I looked at him and just laughed. My exact reply was - "What the fuck you talking about?"! He said HRT, I shook my head and laughed! He was shocked to his shorts when I told him that shit doesn't last and I don't NOTHING I can't do for life! So for all you litter guys on HRT you clock is TICKING - TIC TOC!!! Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha ..............

One training trend I completely don't understand, it this fascination with training to the limit every workout. It doesn't have to be weight it can be reps - THAT SHIT DOESN'T WORK AFTER A COUPLE WORKOUTS! You see it all over YouTube, with their little thumbnails - COULDN'T WALK AFTER LEG! This shit makes me laugh so hard, almost as much as some of these people saying they invented some new form of training. Once and for all that BS acronym TUT (Time Under Tension) ISN'T NEW been around for over 40+ years. This shit funny as hell to watch!!!!

Later Till Next Month...........
Old School Rules!

Ouestion #2 of the Month

Ouestion of the Month #2

Question:Why can't I gain any muscle mass. I eat every 3 hours and I still don't gain anything but fat. I have followed exactly what the some of these other sites say, even tried some of the Youtube stuff and still I don't do anything but get fatter when i put on weight. I don't want the fat just lean weight. Need your help. Mitch - Germany

Answer:  The first thing I want you to know your not alone because most who try these diets and workouts don't even come close to reaching their goals because they are working individuals and have jobs and can't just sleep, eat and train everyday like you don't have a LIFE. Read this article 6 Star Bodyfat Reduction Diet! and we will continue from there.

Ouestion of the Month #3

A staple for anyone over 35 training! NOTHING LESS THAN 100mg! Don't even begin your nutritional supplementation if you don't have a quality DHEA supplement in your arsenal if you over 35. You are just shooting yourself in the foot! The benefit of DHEA are felt over long term usage, and don't go away as with the pharma garbage most seem to want to flock to, we don't do the here as everything they make come from nature and get de-natured by chemical process.

Amino Acids For Positive Nitrogen Retention And Lean Mass!

These are natural occuring sources of proteins which have been partially digested to make them more readily assimilable for human nutrition. The partial digestion splits the large protein molecules into small groups of amino acids called peptides. The amino acids are now called "peptide bonded."

There are many ways to make a protein hydrolysate including acids and caustic treatment. However, for human nutrition Beverly has chosen the preferred method of using naturally occurring enzymes since they mimic the human digestive process and do not degrade the amino acids as do acids and/or caustics.


By far the most superior quality peptide bonded amino tablet on the market. This very unique product is derived from casein, treated with pancreatic enzymes. Whereupon Mass is quickly absorbed, food bulk proteins serve as natural inhibitors of rapid absorption. Mass balance of protein is exceptional, and to reach that balance we have added combinations of free form amino acids to increase the efficiency level of some of the aminos. Unlike other companies, we do not resort to putting protein powders in tablet form and calling them hydrolysates.

Our Conclusion:

Beverly International Mass Is the best amino acids tablet available to the hard training bodybuilder or strength athlete! We don't get the opportunity to go back and re-evaluate old supplement that we love but we do to make sure that the quality hasn't slipped. Beverly International Mass hasn't slipped one nano-centimeter! They are still the best and should always be your 1st Choice when it come to amino acid supplementation - PERIOD! Recommendation: 9.5 / 10.0
