Muscle Building Supplements

Super DMZ – The best supplement for building muscle on planet earth. This supplement is not a joke so read up before you beast up. Read the classic Bold and Determined article about this supplement here.

Universal Uni-Liver – The best protein supplement on the market, but you gotta mega-dose it to get any strength and muscle building effects. The box says take 2-3 tabs with a meal, I take 10 with a meal.

Zinc – Zinc helps to increase testosterone and a common “side effect” is increased semen volume. Try 150mg per day to get the best benefits.

Osta Shred – Osta Shred is a SARM (Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator) and it works very well for lean, hard gains and fat loss.

Osta Shred’s key ingredient Ostarine represents the beginning of a new breed of supplements, as it does not fully interact with the receptor, but instead selectively interacts with it, choosing the receptors that produce positive effects like muscle gains and fat loss, and does not interact with the other “bad” receptors so that you are able to experience the muscle gains and fat loss without the nasty side effects!

Anafuse – Anafuse works very well for muscle gain. Anafuse is a blend of several ingredients:

Epicatechin: Epicatechin is a flavanol found in certain plants such as green tea and cocoa; and is a powerful antioxidant that helps decrease Myostatin.

Laxogenin: Derived from plants, this ingredient is essentially an anabolic building block which your body uses as a blueprint to create its own anabolics.

HICA: HICA is a metabolite of the amino acid leucine that promotes increased protein synthesis and decreased muscle protein breakdown.

Vitamin D3: Vitamin D3 is essential for muscle health in that low levels of Vitamin D3 promote decreased protein synthesis, decreased strength, weakness and muscle wasting.


Baxter of California After Shave Balm – The best after shave I have ever used and I never get those nasty red bumps on my neck any more. I live in Thailand and I pay double to have this product shipped to me.

Taylor of Old Bond Street Jermyn Street Luxury Shaving Cream for Sensitive Skin – The best shaving cream I have ever used.


I use the Synapse 25 backpack from Tom Bihn and I love the bag. It’s the best travel bag I have ever come across. Travel light and travel in style.

Supplements to help you relax

5-HTP – I have trouble relaxing at night. It seems like my mind “wakes up” at night and instead of relaxing and winding down I’ve got a thousand thoughts and ideas going through my head. 5-HTP has been a big help in relaxing me at night. Start with 100mg and hour or two before sleep to get a good night’s rest.

Kratom – Kratom makes me just a happier guy when I use it. It’s a great substitute for alcohol and there are no hangovers or debilitating side effects (but drink lots of water when you use Kratom because it can make you constipated). Before you buy Kratom you must read All About Kratom – The Bold and Determined Special Edition.
