Lol, I was stumbling around the net lately, since I caught a pretty nasty case of the flu on Tuesday (hence, no Wed or Fri log since I was slow as shite). Lookie what I found:
I can't believe the bullshit propaganda that trainers will eventually make bed partners with. First the (clearly) failed deFranco nutrition bar with *28 grams of protein!!!!!1111one*. Good golly there's no way competitive cheaper brands could provide such a thing. OOOHHH WAIIIIT! Actually they can, which is probably why that shit fell under:
One lone soldier standing up against the deFranco defense brigade - "it's not that unhealthy c'mon now"
Then nutrition bar 2.0 (reminiscient of the whole Bill Phillips bullshit, with Sean Phillips not too far behind him). The NEW IMPROVED FOCUS FOOD EnerGI Bar!!!!!!!!! NOW NSF CERTIFIED FOR SPORT!!!!! Cue shitass used car salesman ad copy touting superhuman effects, from athletes he's trained. Cue ad copy for "scientifical" specs (I haz scientifcal eviDANCE LOLOLOL ~v~) - https://www.ginutrition.net/shop/products/focus-food.html. OOOhhh you mean I'm only gettin 22 grams of protein, MAKING IT LESS THAN YOUR PREVIOUS SHITE BRAND? Bu-bu-but they're so good and they improve my performance soo much it should be illegal right? Take a looksie:
FOCUS FOOD's ability to boost strength, energy, mental clarity and overall feeling of well-being made some people skeptical as to whether or not this great-tasting snack contained any banned substances — even my own athletes would look at me funny after eating a bar and then PR'ing in the gym that same day!
This type of response dates all the way back to early 2006 when the first-ever sample batch of DeFranco Energy Bars [currently, Focus Food EnerGI Bars] arrived at my gym in plain silver wrappers. That morning, I asked the 7 guys that I was training for the NFL Combine to try my new product before our speed workout. Their first reaction was, "Damn, this candy bar is good!! But why are you having us eat a candy bar before training?!" Long story short; when I tested their 20-yard sprint times, all 7 athletes PR'd! I'll never forget that day; it was unreal. The first athlete to PR that day was a little-known wide receiver from Monmouth University named Miles Austin. After PR'ing by .07 seconds in his 20-yard sprint and having a great workout, he looked at me and said, "You sure that candy bar is legal? I felt great today, but that shady silver wrapper scares me a little!" The rest - as they say - is history!
Holy fuck. The economy must be going bad here, to resort to scammy ad bullshit here. I can only shake my head at this. However, I also await the creation of the Rippetoe Bar (free 3x5 or 5x5 vitamins, whichever you're stalling on first) in response to milk drinkers who don't want to be 250lbs of "lean muscle" at 5'8".
