    I've been hearing alot of rave reviews about the use of a product called glycergrow.

    Basically

    "Its glycerol.. helps to keep you hydrated(hyperhydration) - ups the osmolarity of blood fluid.. Basically creates an anabolic environment - cell volumizer, increase absorption etc
    help electrolyte balance, vascularity, tight *** pumps"

    A lot of people are raving about it.

    I would spend that $55 on 10 lbs of protein powder instead.

    Most of glycerol research is around endurance work, but..

    who wants to pay 55$ for glycerol when I can go down the shop and get it cheaper?

    oh thats right, its in a magic bbr tub of crud that makes it 100% more awsome.

    She had a traumatic brain injury, but lying there in bed, her muscles were as SWOLE as her brain edema.

    If it works on cycling endurance, it's got to work on bodybuilders. Both have huge muscles and train using the same energy pathways.
