    SURVEY!!! (for school report)

    Im doing a report on teens surrounding bodybuilding and supplementation. If you guys could quickly reply to a few questions it'd help alot.


    1. Do you believe the majority of teens lack the knowledge of supplements before buying and using them?

    2. Do you believe supplement company advertisments play a big role in influencing teens decisions on which supplements to buy?

    3. What do you think the most popular supplements are a teen buys?

    4. Do you think teens are looking for the easy route to gain muscle fast and this is the reason they turn to supplements?

    5. Do you believe the majority of teens lack the knowledge when its comes to the 3 major aspects of bodybuilding... diet/rest/training??

    6. What is the major problem you see in gyms when watching some teens train?? If any.

    Ok thats it and if there is anything you'd like to add be my guest really appreciate this guys/gals =)

    Let me also add, unrealistic expectations of themselves, this comes through looking at top bodybuilder magazines, teens need to set realistic expectations of themselves, they need not rely on drugs for quick gains in strength and athleticisim, they need to realize that only through hard training, good nutrition, and strict discipline, may their goals and objectives be met.

    yes- muscle tech has an army of teens who blindly follow them
    yes-i think all those advertisers bullshit way too much. it seems as though the really good supps, like isopure protien don't get that much advertising cuz they don't need it. teens are too lazy to research products and too dumb to ask around muscle boards and if they do they ignore the advice cuz they only listen to what they want to hear.
    As for most pop supps, what eveyone said is definitly true, however by me roids are the most popular amoung the youth. these kids have alot of money to piss away and they are lazy so they buy roids. i've seen alot kids get fucked up on that shit, gyno, extreme fat gain etc.
    yes- NO teen diets except by cutting out important meals cuz they fear getting fat or eating absolute crap, no teen sleeps more than 4-5 hours a day, and alot of them train the same muscle over and over without giving it rest.

    2. No, I think, "I know someone who blew up off of.." has a little more influence on TEENS specifically.
    3. Protein, Creatine, and Andro
    4. Yes
    5. Yes
    6. Too heavy with poor form.

    I know, I used to sell it to 'em.
