Re: Progenex fails to meet label claims.

Cooper, perhaps, but facts are facts. Do you think that no one should point it out? Should a company be allowed to behave as they evidently have with no repercussions?

Personally, I've never used the stuff and wouldn't bother - I think I've learned by now that 99.99% of outlandish supplement claims are too good to be true.
Yeah, there are CrossFitters who swear by Progenex, wear the t-shirt when they workout, etc. I think this is actually motivated by two factors, both economic:
- Progenex sponsors Games athletes who promote it on their instagram and twitter and t-shirts, etc.
- Some CrossFitters and CF boxes are Progenex affiliates who sell the stuff for extra income

In both cases it's in their economic interest to promote it. There's also ******** and Isagenex, which are basically the same type of thing. (multi-level marketing companies, a.k.a. pyramid schemes)

Re: Progenex fails to meet label claims.

hahaha! the board automatically censored the name of one of those pyramid schemes. I'll give you a hint: starts with "advo" ends with "care".

Re: Progenex fails to meet label claims.

I assume it is because he was asked quite a few times to not promote here and he kept doing it. He could provide some valuable insight though so that is a bit disappointing.

Re: Progenex fails to meet label claims.

It looks like his last post was moved to Pukie's Bucket:

http://board.crossfit.com/showthread.php?t=88564 (wfs)

It was a link to this recent article he'd written:

http://wannabebig.com/training/post-...eeping-it-100/ (wfs)

Seems strange considering he's written for the CrossFit Journal and linked to a ton of his own articles on this forum.

Are these his only websites?

Re: Progenex fails to meet label claims.

Yep, I don't think he has any other sites. WBB is pretty dead these days though. I know he will write an article there every now and then but the message board is a ghost town. Shame too, there used to be a ton of STRONG guys that posted there regularly back in the day. There are still some really good articles there though.
