  • Great points made. I also think that somteimes, when guys first start lifting weights and do get those beginner gains, once they stop and fall back to normal muscle gains, the lifter thinks that something is wrong and gets on a mission to do everything they can to prolong those results.The supplement companies that make big claims probably take advantage of this desire. Beginner gains could be compared to a first time high for a drug abuser. They now are trying to chase that feeling they had the first time they got high. So after a newbie gains 10 pounds of muscle in their first month, and then after that only gets 1 pound per month, then certain articles and supplement advertisements convince them that their magic pill/powder will get them back to gaining 10 pounds of muscle ever 2 weeks, for as long as they take them!The reality is, these companies will continue to do well for a long time, because humans buy the things that promise to do what they want them to do, even when they know it not to be the truth. They will continue to invest in items that tell them what they want to hear.Great article
