a man who was very well acquainted with Vince Gironda contacted me. He
told me some stories about the old "Iron Guru" I had not heard
Back when I
first started bodybuilding I bought all of Vince's courses and I read
every single article he wrote for MuscleMag International,
cantankerous old guy was way ahead of his time. He really knew all the
secrets to building a great physique fast.
Here's one of
Vince's secrets that very few people have ever heard about....
reluctant to share this secret with you. It's so simple and easy I'm
afraid you might not take it seriously. But trust me...
It REALLY works!
Vince was a
believer that in order to grow, you need to keep your body in a
"positive nitrogen balance." This means that protein (the only nutrient
that contains nitrogen) should be constantly available in your
And Vince knew
that when you're training intensely, your body needs this additional
protein to support anabolism (growth and repair).
See, when you
eat protein, your body breaks it down into amino acids. These amino
acids are only available in the bloodstream for a few hours. If you
don't get some more protein in there within two to three hours, you'll
be in "negative nitrogen balance." This means your body is using and
excreting more nitrogen than it is taking in (catabolism).
In order to
prevent that from happening, you need to keep a constant source of high
quality protein coming into your body.
Vince was a
proponent of using "concentrated food sources." These are foods which
contain the protein and nutrients you need for anabolism... but don't
contain a lot of excess carbohydrates and calories that take up a lot
of space in your stomach, allowing for more frequent feedings.
He was not a
believer in stuffing a bunch of food down your throat to bulk up and
gain a lot of weight. He used to say, "How much do you think an extra
inch on your arms is going to add to the scale?"
So Vince had
his students take protein powder mixed with cream, raw fertile eggs,
amino acids and... (drum roll. please)...
Desiccated Liver Tablets!
A lot of
Vince's students gained an inch on their arms within 30 days simply by
taking 3 to 5 liver tablets every single hour they were awake. This
insures a positive nitrogen balance without excess carbohydrates and
some of the old timers telling of phenomenal gains made on 100 or more
liver tablets a day were very common.
Why does it
work so well?
Vince, desiccated liver contains nucleic acids for proper amino-acid
utilization, a growth factor and an anti-estrogen factor, which keeps
testosterone levels high... and it's is also a great anti-toxin.
on Desiccated Liver
In a classic
experiment, Dr. B. H. Ershoff demonstrated that liver extract was able
to boost strength, endurance, performance, and resistance to stress and
In a nutshell
here's how this occurred:
took three groups of rats and fed them controlled diets for a twelve
Group one ate a
basic diet fortified with vitamins and minerals. Group two ate as much
as they wanted of the same diet plus B vitamins and brewer’s yeast.
Group three ate the basic diet but had 10% desiccated liver added to
weeks the doctor placed the rats one by one into a drum of water of
which they could not climb out. It was either sink or swim... literally!
The group one
rats swam an average of 13.2 minutes before they all drowned. Group
two, an average of 13.4 minutes.
which ate the desiccated liver, was still swimming at the end of two
hours, at which time the experiment was concluded.
The rats that
had desiccated liver added to their diets swam almost 10 times as long
as the other two groups! As far as I know, no other supplement has even
come close to liver in improving endurance.
liver flat out works!
So take old
Vince Gironda's advice and try adding desiccated liver to your
The addition of
only 5 to 10 desiccated liver tablets per meal for five meals per day
can make a tremendous difference in your condition.
In addition to
all the positive energy-promoting factors, this simple and effective
supplement regime will add approximately 25 to 50 grams of the highest
quality protein to your daily intake.
Then sit back
and watch your muscles grow while your energy levels soar.
