As if that's possible. And no, that photo doesn't convince me that it is...looks more like it's been cut with a bandsaw than torn.

I'm a big fan and continuous user of Optimum Nutrition products. I will be the first one to tear this up.

Why would you need the product if you already have the strength to tear the magazine in half?

True. Who can rip that thing off just doesn't need anything else.

By the way, it works in a first moment, but after you think of the postal service cost youjust give up the idea.

EXACTLY!!! Maybe this is a product specially conceived for people who are already strong and muscled... i dunno! Maybe if a regular guy has a bit of that, he gets an OD right away! :D

that´s my point, if you can´t rip it, then you should call the vitamin guys.

Why would I want to destroy my magazine? Defeats the purpose of getting something for free really.
