    We are testing some new products and considering these companies for sponsors to the site. We want to be careful that we don't just take on anyone. If you have any products that you personally would back let us know and we will look into it. The good news is that we have a couple companies (I can't share who yet) that are going to be getting involved in the site more. Let's just put it this way things are going to get interesting. Again any recommendations let us know. We want the best for you guys and your opinion means a lot. We want to weed out the junk and leave you with the best. God knows we spend a ton of money on this hobby, but if we can spend our money on good products we will be saving in the long run. Thanks everyone for your support of the site and our awesome sponsors.

        I think products by BPI and USPlabs are really good for what they are. I love the micronized BCAA's by USP, and their fat burner is one of the best I have tried that didn't contain ephedra.

        Oh and I know that TP/TN used to carry Pepto Pro. Not sure if they still do, but I think the world of it.

        Just first couple companies that came to mind.

          Lock it up, that brings up a great idea that I am working on, but it does not involve actual sponsors since Truenutrition is the big dog on here. We aren't against other supplement companies advertising necessarily, but I don't know if they would want to for this reason.

          Basically the idea would be more of a thread involving test users of new products. I'm just trying to find a way to make this more interesting for the company and for our members. I really don't want to do the same boring thing. In other words test users would probably have to do some work in order to be test users.

            Oh I think I see. I'm up for being a guinea pig...I try too many supplements to name. It's like my vice, haha. Do you mean reccomend types of products? Well, I think it would be interesting to try some different thing...the following is what I like to try different forms of.

            Sleep Aids.
            -When you find a good one, it makes a world of difference. I know TN has one, but I have used it and it isn't as strong as some others I have tried (I have MAJOR sleep issues).

            Nootropics/Cognitive enhancers
            -This is a really interesting topic. I have tried a few different formulas, and some straight ingredients (5-HTP comes to mind), and find they actually do work. A heightened sense of well being, motivation, clarity, steady energy levels.

            More non-stim preworkouts.

            Multi-Vitamin packs
            -I have been using more and more now a days the vitapacks with 5-6 capsules per dose, like you would see in an Animal Pak type of deal. I have noticed differences between doing that and just taking a one a day formula. If anyone could come up with a SERIOUS ingridient profile for the hard training athlete, TN could.

            Corticeps (sp?) Mushrooms:

            This is starting to get looked at as an endurance enhancer. From some folks I have spoken with it's the real deal. Non-Stim too. I haven't tried any products with it, but I hear good things.

            Immune system support:
            -I have noticed over the years I get sick once, MAYBE twice a year. But, when I do I get nailed. I rationalize it as I get whenever I am training very hard or slightly getting overtrained...we all know this happens. I would love a product I could take year round that I knew would help my immune system.

            Digestive Health/Pro Biotics
            -I think they do WONDERS.

            A fiber product
            -Guys who train hard/eat large amounts of protein rarely get enough fiber. And it helps so many bodily functions.

            Green pill
            -Basically, a fruit + veggie combo capsule packing in all the nutrients and phytochemicals found in fruits and veggies. (another health oriented idea)






            And I know this category gets a lot of flak, but I find some products have merit:

            Pro Hormones



            Those are the ones I had on the top of my head. I'll keep thinking
            Is that what you meant Doberman? Please include me on the list of people DYING to "test" anything that TN puts out there. I think it would be fun.

                  Support products like knee and elbow sleeves, wrist and knee wraps, lifting straps that don't snap after 2-3 months of heavy usage. Maybe the new "lifting" mouth piece trend from under armor? Recovery tools like rollers, sticks, thera-canes, etc.

                    Oh I really like the idea of recovery tools. There's a huge untapped market for guys who have no clue about foam rolling. I think that would be awesome.

                      Is this training only or other products looked at to be a sponsor? I was going to mention some auto stuff.

                      But great ideas Lock. I would be intersted in being a test user for something.

                          I believe TN is coming out with one by the end of the month!

                          Doberman, I'll do some brainstorming to come up wit ideas. It seems Lock nailed most them haha and nator's idea for support/health products.

                          EDIT: How about a company that sells clothes to guys 5'4" and under? lol

                          I'd be down to test and review something if you are still looking for people.

                            Great ideas guys.

                            Pretty much all of them have potential.

                            I'll keep you guys in mind for testers. I don't have any commitment on this yet, but we have seen some interest. So Illl et you know.
