New 'Steroid Alternative' Takes Over Muscle Beach
Athletes Swear By It — But Should It Be Banned?
Muscle Beach
Which body type do you want? At the famed "Muscle Beach" in Venice, Calif., we polled bodybuilders whose physiques more represented the center photo about their sports supplement preferences.

controversial, new muscle-building compound sold under the brand name Monster Mix is fast becoming the most popular steroid-alternative among bodybuilders at California's famed Muscle Beach, according to March 2016 survey results.

The MeccaWith prohormone laws recently enacted banning the most powerful steroid-like compounds, we wondered what supplements today's ultra-shredded bodybuilders were turning to. And what better place to go to find that answer than Muscle Beach — home of The Mecca of Bodybuilding, Gold's Gym Venice, where the cult muscle classic "Pumping Iron" was filmed.

Now, we're not naive enough to think the muscle monsters (top left) are simply taking "amino acids" to achieve their freakish physiques; nor are we lame enough to seek out the supplement opinions of the "Beiber-looking" dudes at the gym (top right) who, in their own minds at least, really do think they're all jack'd up ("you gotta try this dope new energy drink, brah.")

Nah... here, we keep it real — and instead we sought out the supplement opinions of 100 bodybuilders with the "physique profile" of the lifter in the above-center photo: Ultra-muscular, lean, and symmetrical — without being so "oversized" that you're left with no doubt that dude is engaging in some, shall we say, pharmaceutical indiscretions ("I just know that sum' beech is on somthin'...").

Poll: Bodybuilders Switching to 'Underground' Steroid-Alternatives 

Monster Mix Graph As mentioned, the surprising winner of our supplement poll is an "underground, all-in-one protein blend" called Monster Mix, with 83 of 100 bodybuilders saying they use the supplement (see full results at right).

Monster Mix? We'd never heard of it — but it's obviously gaining a "cult-like" following among some seriously jacked bodybuilders at "The Mecca," so we wanted to know more...

First of all, what exactly is Monster Mix? It's marketed as a new "hardcore" whey protein supplement containing naturally occurring "metabolic intermediates" discovered by Russian sports scientists. Sales data shows it's one of the hottest supplements going in amateur athletics — but not without controversy.

Critics say the supplement — originally offered in Russia under the brand name Mонстр Mикс (Russian for Monster Mix) — gives athletes an “unfair advantage” and should be banned. Proponents argue that research shows the powdered sports drink to be both safe and effective and that banning the supplement containing natural plant compounds would be akin to banning vitamins.

Research recently published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine showed that 40 experienced weight-training athletes supplementing with the metabolic intermediaries in Monster Mix saw a 6% increase in lean muscle mass within just 10 days.
One thing people on both sides can agree on is the controversial, new supplement works. Research recently published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine showed that 40 experienced weight-training athletes supplementing with the metabolic intermediaries in Monster Mix experienced a 6% increase in lean muscle mass within just 10 days.

In another recent study, human test subjects supplementing with the anabolic agents in Monster Mix showed marked increases in muscle protein synthesis and hypertrophy (muscle growth), greater back muscle strength, better coordination, and improved recovery ability.

What’s more, recent research out of Russia shows Monster Mix’s biochemical matrix had a profound effect on activating lutenizing hormons in the body, which in turn signaled testosterone production by as much as 440%.

T Study

And if all that weren’t reason enough to have athletes stocking up, a separate study recently carried out in Russia showed this unique biochemical matrix helped increase the muscle strength and mass of Russian athletes, while speeding their recovery time from exercise, by naturally increasing levels of IGF-1 (growth hormone) and testosterone.
