  Holly Holm To Endorse Products Prohibited By UFC

Holly Holm, the American mixed martial artist who competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championship bantamweight division, has signed a new endorsement deal with a supplement company that makes a number of products that contain a stimulant included on the prohibited substances list of the World Anti-Doping Agency.

Holm recently agreed to a two-year deal and she will be seen pictured next to five bottled products of the company in a new advertisement. Three of these products are advertised as containing DMAA.

The UFC women’s bantamweight and former world boxing champion would be seen endorsing DMAA (chemical name Dimethylamylamine) that is a performance enhancing drug banned by WADA as it aids in fat loss and promotes muscle growth. Dimethylamylamine is banned by the UFC, the World Anti-Doping Agency, and the Food and Drug Administration.

This is the second time that Holm has associated herself with a company making banned supplements. Holm has been tested seven times since the inception of anti-doping program of the UFC in July and all of her results have been negative.

In a statement, the UFC said Holly Holm is a great UFC champion and a role model for the sport of mixed martial arts. It was further added that the UFC organization has not researched the company that is sponsoring Holm, and UFC does not condone any athlete that uses a substance on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s Prohibited List.

Holm will defend her bantamweight title that she swiped from Ronda Rousey last November against Miesha Tate on March 5.  Holm (10-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) looks for her first title defense when she meets Miesha Tate (17-5 MMA, 4-2 UFC) in UFC 197’s pay-per-view co-headliner on March 5 in Las Vegas. This was after Rousey requested and received additional time off after an immediate rematch at the UFC’s blockbuster UFC 200 show on July 2 was tentatively scheduled. The second fight between Holm and Rousey is expected to challenge UFC pay-per-view and live gate records.

Meanwhile, UFC women’s bantamweight contender Miesha Tate has remarked she is not in favor of a second go-around between champ Holly Holm and Ronda Rouse. Tate (17-5 MMA, 4-2 UFC) argues she is a better candidate for the title and added she is not a fan of the rematch in that amount of time, because with everything else that Ronda has going on, plus her injuries, she just do not think it is going to amount to a good outcome.

UFC president Dana White said UFC fans will see Ronda Rousey fight again. White added Ronda has dedicated the last three-plus years to working hard here. Not just fighting, but promoting and taking the sport and the UFC to a whole other level and Ronda has some well-deserved time off, but she will fight this year.

Holm’s longtime manager, Lenny Fresquez, recently confirmed Holm has inked a multiyear contract extension to remain with the UFC. Fresquez said we have officially signed a multiyear extension with the UFC and went on to add that we’ve signed an extension, and we’re very happy with the extension.

If you are looking for one of the best performance enhancing drugs to build muscles and improve body strength, Insulin can be an excellent choice for you. The fact that artificial insulin is highly effective in creating an optimal anabolic environment favorable to muscle growth without leading to side effects suggests that the muscle building hormone is the best thing for sportsmen, especially those into body building. If that was not all, insulin bodybuilding gains are nearly permanent.

This powerful anabolic agent is very effective in promoting facilitated diffusion of glucose through cells with insulin receptors that leads to development of existing and growth of new muscle tissue. Moreover, insulin is effective to increase bone density and the promotion of transportation of amino acids into muscle cells. One of the other advantages with insulin is that it helps in putting amino acids into the muscles that proves extremely useful for promoting muscle growth. Insulin is also used to increase protein synthesis and lean muscle mass when used with a highly anabolic branched-chain amino acid, leucine.

Insulin is also admired for its unique ability to stimulate significant improvements in terms of both LH (luteinizing hormone) and FSH (follicle stimulating hormone), besides promoting the IGF (insulin-like growth factor) levels and increasing the binding ability of anabolic steroids to the androgen receptors.

The recommended dose of insulin is 10 g per unit and it is best to consume 5-10 grams of carbs per every unit of insulin before or fifteen minutes after injecting insulin. Some sportsmen even use insulin in doses of 20-40 IU per day and include a decent amount of mixed carbs and at least 40g of protein with each meal.

  MGF II- Mechano-growth factor II

Mechano-growth factor II, or MGF II, is a variant of the IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor-1) that stimulates myoblasts division and helps muscle fibers to fuse and mature. Sportsmen, especially those into body building, use MGF-II as it helps in accelerating growth of muscles and promote fat mass reductions in the body.

In addition to this, Mechano-growth factor II is extremely beneficial in improving the level of endurance and muscle definition besides promoting immune defense improvements and strengthening of bones. This drug is also useful in reducing the cholesterol level and promoting accelerated recovery after intense workouts.

One of the biggest advantages associated with Mechano-growth factor II is that its users do not experience any side effects that generally occur with use of other drugs for gaining body mass. Moreover, MGF-II is second to none in ameliorating age-related loss of muscle strength and increased fragility. Medical studies in the past have suggested that MGF represents a target for therapeutic intervention to prevent age-related muscle loss due to its supposed ability to activate satellite cells and Mechano growth factor can also be used to preserve muscular phenotypes during onset of motoneuron-targeted diseases. It is believed that MGF is the most dominantly anabolic portion of the IGF-1 peptide and has the unique ability to promote greater increases in muscle weight and muscle definition, over a shorter time as compared to IGF-1 alone.

In addition to these advantages, Mechano-growth factor II, or MGF II, leads to muscle mass gains by improving the ability of wasted tissue to grow and activate muscle stem cells. It has also been shown to improve the upregulation of protein synthesis and inducing rapid muscle hypertrophy. Not only this, MGF-II has the ability to target skeletal tissue and promote muscle growth by repairing damaged tissues and can be considered potential as a generic means of treating muscle cachexia.

The recommended dose of Mechano-growth factor II is 100-200 mcg every day and the ideal frequency is two or three times a week. MGF-II is required to be injected subcutaneously 1-2 hours before training for imitating physiologic secretion. The best steroid cycle involving Mechano-growth factor II is of a period of five to six weeks.

Doping initiative stopped by lack of fundsA test developed by a British scientist for detecting the abuse of human growth hormone (HGH) by athletes is facing a race against time to be ready due to lack of funds.

HGH can trigger muscle growth enhancements and has remained undetectable so far despite being banned since 1987.

Human growth hormone is so popular among top athletes that it has been dubbed the “drug of champions”.

  â€˜Nandrolone steroid intake not a wrong doing’, say reports!

‘Nandrolone steroid intake not a wrong doing’, say reports!Nandrolone is form of anabolic steroid, known to be consumed by athletes to enhance body’s capacity to perform at its best and reduce the physical exertion caused due to training. It is primarily synthesized form the male hormone called the testosterone and also promotes the building of muscle mass in the body. Where intake of these steroids has been banned by many sports, their exact effect on the body is still a question of scientific debate.

However, the question is here whether the tests for the steroid called nandrolone is conclusive or not. On one hand even if the tests indicate the intake of this anabolic steroid to develop muscle growth and strength, this might not always act against the athlete who had consumed it.

A proof of this comes from the studies which say that the nandrolone can also naturally formed inside the human body if one consumes large amount of meat contaminated by the steroid. Besides, the fact that the compounds into which some dietary supplements are broken down are exactly similar to the ones formed when nandrolone is created reveal that the athlete cannot always be accused of taking them.

A few names that have been tested positive for nandrolone include Linford Christie, sprinter, Merlene Ottey, sprinter, Mark Richardson, swimmer, Korda, Czech, tennis player, Djamel Bouras, judo player and Igor Shalimov, footballer.
