I also picked up three bottles of vanadyl sulfate, buy one get two free.

Have been using creatine and glutamine for a couple of months. This combo has always worked pretty well for me. Will add in the HMB and vanadyl and see if I notice a difference.

Overdue update: Tried HMB for three months. My diet and training were cosistant. I noticed little or no effect from HMB. Think it may be more noticeable for those on calorie restricted diets.

HMB is the key metabolite of Leucine (often considered the BCAA most responsible for protein synthesis).


There's science behind it that suggests favorable effectiveness.
Below is a quote from one such study:

Quote
5. Conclusions
This study indicates that HMB supplementation in athletes training combat sports promotes an advantageous reduction of fat mass and increase in fat-free mass, anaerobic peak power, average power, and post-anaerobic exercise lactate concentrations. HMB also stimulates beneficial changes in aerobic capacity of the organism, mainly due to the increased values of ventilatory threshold. Furthermore, long-term HMB supplementation does not seem to cause significant changes in creatine kinase and lactate dehydrogenase activity, or testosterone and cortisol concentration in blood.

I've been using it consistently for about a year and the results are pretty good. It's helped me keep my strength and muscle size.

I'm moving poundages at 216 that I used to move at 240 or so. And it feels great.
