My 15-year-old son ordered a "free" online trial of a men's muscle-building health supplement called Lean Muscle X. We found out after he received it that it is not recommended for anyone under 18. The main website does not mention this, nor does the ordering process have a screening mechanism to make sure that no one under 18 orders. Now we're told that he cannot return the product. Can anyone else who has dealt with this company advise me on how to deal with them? Aside from contacting the Better Business Bureau, what should I do to prevent this from happening to others?
I'm not even going to tell you how difficult this was to find. Their official return policy can be found at:
http://leanmusclex.com/Sites/1002852/im … funds.html
If they won't take it back, threaten to file a report with the Better business Bureau and the Federal Trade Commission. If you need additional leverage, mention the recent changes in the FTC Act against deceptive advertising and they should quickly change their tune.
I can't tell you anything about the supplement unless I Know what's in it that you might object to.
If your son is 15, he is too young to be handling heavy weight. the growing ends of his bones might be damaged.
It's ok for him to use weight but moderate weight and higher reps.
He really shouldn't be powerlifting until he is 17 - 19 yrs old.
He has all the testosterone he needs.
His diet should be hi in quality protein food with all the essential ammino acids, plenty of complex carbs and fats from vegetable source...and eat 4 - 6 small meals a day with lots of water...no soft drinks.
are 10 inch muscles big for a 14 yr old because i really want to get stronger
Am I the only person who really does not want anything to do with creatine or any of those protein powders?
Tell your kid to put in the work in the weight room if he wants to get big, no need for that expensive powder. Tell him to do lesser weights and a lot more of them. Despite what the 300 muscle men are walking around saying. Their backs/knees are already shot and give them 10 years when they won't be able to walk.
I was always one of the most muscular kids at the school, and I worked out less than everyone there(but I did work my but off in sports and being active every day). Now I can name 3 kids that are twice my size that have NOT left the weight room for 6-7 years now and all of them took some time of powder.
All 3 of those guys are huge. One had to quit playing sports at 19 because he ruined his back, one was just so huge that he had no athletic ability and never stretched, and the other kids a semi-athlete who did things more like me(still worked out harder and took creatine), rather than doing an intense football work out, take it in strides and don't let him hurt himself.
I used to get made fun of for doing lesser weights, it was obvious I could do more than most people there. They all did their maxes and I did half of that weight. Needless to say I still improved big time in all my muscles/strength and so did they.
qwark and mikeydoes are both right. I've also weightlifted for about 10 years and done boatloads of research and reading. Creatine can become a mood-altering substance, creating more energy, but also much more agitation, racing thoughts and sleeplessness. Most people don't even know this stuff.
Genetics plays a good part of muscle development in the early years of bodybuilding, but over time, you can gain more mass with persistence. That's how I've done it. I was always very skinny and a hard gainer. But being active a lot in younger years, in sports, and other means will do a lot to tone and develop muscles.
hmmm sleeplessness from creatine thats a new one. I take it and never had anr side effect, but i do drink lots of water. At 15 you should consintrate on your form because the weight will come, if he's going to take supplements ease into them a little here and there wont hurt.

Fitness centers and diets do not want you to lose weight, permanently. They want you to lose a little and then gain it again. So you'll have to keep going to the gym or dietitian. Therefore, they make a cure / program that is hard to follow. So there is a greater chance that you fail it, and gain...
