A nice post over on the Avant board jogged my memory: Cybergenics
There were a series of "Isolates" 1-9 I believe consisting largely of arginine/ornithine, DMG, B-12 drops and Gamma Oryzanol that you took at certain times of the day.
PA brought up an interesting observation: The entire workout, diet and supps centered around massive GH release due to intense training on an empty stomach + GH/NO inducing aminos.
Call it the circe 1989 sledgehammer approach: I can still vividly recall performing 3-4 rounds of squats strip setted to failure followed immediately by negatives to failure followed immediatley by bodyweight jumps to failure. Passed out for 12 hours after that workout.
For those that remember, the ICOPRO program promoted by Vince McMahon/Fred Hatfield was very similar. Carb cycling anabolic diet + intensification techniques + various aminos (and a handy dandy aromatherapy bag to sniff pre-workout).
You could probably do a souped up millenium version using AMP + smelling salts + All-in-one + 1NO and a CKD.

Although I was about 13 around that time I was reading about various supplementation and what not. I was a freshman in highschool when I bought the Cybergenics system hoping to make a recomp like Franco Santoriello (or whatever his name was). I do remember the training program.. it was rigourous for its time. Dieting was extremely important and strict. If only the supplements were like they are today.... that system would be pretty damn good for muscle mass/ fatloss. In 92 and 93 creatine came out (musclemedia2000) gave me the heads up .... in 94 came products like OKG, Ultimate Orange, Ephedrine, Aminofit(nasty ****). The ball started rolling with quality supplements from then till now.I'm burnin rubber on these hoes like Vogues....

I only used the phase 1 product and did so soon after I started working out. I stopped taking the supplements after a while but I kept doing the workout. It was good because it got me on a schedule and taught me about intensity. I put on 10 pounds in the first month. Like I said, it had little to nothing to do with the supplements but the training portion worked pretty well.

BUT... the training regimen is priceless as well as the carb/protein cycling. If you can stick to the diet/training regimin you are fully prepared to handle anything the bodybuilding world throws at you.
I'd like to get my hands on that manual one more time.
