They are chemical free, they have an about us post on the site that explains.
I am a novice at this with small weights but I noticed my upper body got a nice complete build out just from the dead lift
Seems a lazy way to quick build up with one exercise and exercise we do everyday life picking stuff up then lots of rest and fruit
I do not doubt what you say about squats kinda same motion but without as much on the arms ?
SQUAT AND DEAD LIFT ;) and don't forget to press!
from my experience with muscle gaining
1) need to eat EXTRA calories
2) need to push yourself to the limits
You should be doing cardio IN you weight training - make a circuit with no breaks, and watch your HR get up to 170+ :) By this I mean, a circuit of weight baring exercises (some body weight such as push ups, other using dumb bells, the bar, machines etc) that are really challenging and make you sweat and hurt.
I will do weights so heavy that I struggle to get the 10th rep. If you aren't challenging your body, telling it 'hey, I need to muscle to do more things', then why would it gain? I am sure you probably carry shopping or textbooks regularly, so if you're exercising with a similar weight to that, how could you expect a change?
Yes that is the best way to do it according to many experts! I absolutely love this book which advocates this approach:
Charlie Abel recommends short intensity work outs as taught in this book:
