    You know your a Vet when.............

    Remember protein powder that required a blender or chewing lumps of the worst tasting crap ever tolerated to make gains?

    How about those early Amino Acid horse tablets?

    I bet 63Vette has a good one ;-)

    I remember saving my money over 20 yrs ago for some DP concrete dumbells and thinking they were going to get me some pussy.

    Not sure but didnt 63vette work at GNC when he was a bubblegummer.

    I'm not as old as you guys ), but I did get into the game early and remember the gnarly choices for protein powder that came in square tubs that were damn near impossible to open for a 12 year old. Beverly stills makes those horse tab aminos and liver pills. And my first set of dumbbells were the concrete ones, but the cheap ugly brown plastic was mostly gone so it was literally just concrete.

    Man I would pull and push those things until they would sprinkle concrete dust on my arms and shoulders. I just knew the bitches would like me. I was about 80lbs back then. Good shit.

    I still have a few of those plastic covered concrete plates at my mom and stepfather's house. If I remember correctly, 8.8lbs. LOL

    The real bitch was when too much of the sand /concrete leaked out of the plastic and it was no longer an 8.8lb, but rather 4.8.

    My brother & I got a set of those for Christmas one year. I think I was around 7 at the time. I also recall getting my first protein powder. The stuff was in a tin with one of those pry off covers.

    I just remember everything I took being called "weight gain", I don't remember protein specific powers. I used to have some of the maroon concrete filled weights on a broom stick with collars for curling and a shelf bracket mounted to the wall with a pully wired to it for pushdowns! I remember in grade school we measured strength by what you could press over your head, I think it was about 65lbs when I was 10-12 yrs old.

    I was 18 when I got Cybergenics my dad asked me if I was insane. Remember the video that came with it and the man and woman are dressed in funky clothes. Plus the set they filmed the video on looks like the house of that UFO cult that did the mass suicide.

    uh, mate?

    let's take it a step back further....

    remember BEFORE protein powder?

    we had predigested (liquid) protein. it literally tasted like something out of somebody's stomach

    remember gulping down raw eggs?
