LONDON -- British sprinter Dwain Chambers resumed his links with Victor Conte, the man behind the doping scandal that led to Chambers' two-year ban from the sport.

Chambers, the new European indoor 60-meter champion, is using a legal high-tech breathing device to boost his oxygen capacity under the supervision of Conte.

Conte, founder of the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative, put Chambers on a program that involves breathing low and high oxygen to boost his red blood cell count.

Dwain Chambers won the 60 meters at the European indoor championships on March 8, his first international title since coming back from a doping suspension.


"This allows me to have a deeper training load," Chambers told British media. "I suffer less lactic acid, delivering more oxygen to the muscles. It's a shame we didn't know this five years ago."

Chambers tested positive for THG in 2003 and served a two-year suspension. He was the first athlete with connections to Conte to test positive for the previously undetectable steroid.

Conte was the central figure in the wide-ranging BALCO scandal that has enveloped several top-level athletes, including Marion Jones, Tim Montgomery and Barry Bonds. Conte pleaded guilty to operating a steroids distribution ring and served four months in prison.

Chambers won the 60 meters at last weekend's European indoor championships in Turin, Italy, clocking a European-record 6.42 seconds in the semifinals.

The oxygen device he uses is called the "AltoLab Altitude Simulator," which approximates the effect of training at high altitude and is legal under World Anti-Doping Agency rules.

"Everyone used to think [simulated altitude training] was all about endurance athletes," Conte said in Thursday editions of the Daily Telegraph. "No one thought of applying this to explosive sprinting."

Despite the BALCO scandal, Chambers has remained close to Conte.

"I am a forgiving man," Chambers said. "I have forgiven myself, I have forgiven him. I do not blame him for anything that occurred during that period. I ruined my career, nobody else did that."

He said his relationship with Conte is on an "educational basis."

"The information they require from me about when to test, I ask Victor for that and I give it to the relevant bodies," he said.

Chambers rejected speculation by critics about his fast times, insisting he is running clean.

"They can believe what they want," he said. "I am following the procedures. I get routinely drug-tested. I have no reason to be going down that road again. Based on my experience, there is no need."

Chambers' autobiography, "Race Against Me: My Story," went on sale Monday. He writes that he was a "walking junkie" who took more than 300 different concoctions of banned substances after linking up with Conte in 2002.

Creatine Supplements...

So, what is creatine? Our bodies naturally make the compound, which is used to supply energy to our muscles. It is produced in the liver, pancreas, and kidneys, and is transported to the body's muscles through the bloodstream. Once it reaches the muscles, it is converted into phosphocreatine (creatine phosphate). This high-powered metabolite is used to regenerate the muscles' ultimate energy source, ATP (adenosine triphosphate).
Unlike steroids or drugs, creatine is 100% natural and occurs naturally in many foods; therefore, it can never be banned from any sports or international competitions (unless they banned eating meat). Many foods especially herring, salmon, tuna, and beef contain some creatine. However, the very best source of creatine by far is creatine monohydrate because it contains more creatine per weight of material than any other source. sells only high quality 99.9% pure pharmaceutical-grade creatine monohydrate.

Nitric Oxide Supplements

1. What is it and where does it come from?
Nitric Oxide is a free form gas that is produced in the body and is used by the body to communicate with other cells in the body. To produce this gas, enzymes in the body break down the amino acid Arginine.

Nitric Oxide is a molecule consisting of one atom of nitrogen and one atom of oxygen. The production of Nitric Oxide occurs when the amino acid L-arginine is converted into L-citruline through an enzyme group known as Nitric Oxide Synthase (NOS). The chemical process of conversion is shown in figure 1.


Protein Supplements...

High protein diets, like Atkins Diet and South Beach, continue to gain in popularity among many dieters. Some athletes even use these diets and find they lose weight. Depending upon the type of athlete you are and what sort of sport you play, you might want to question the role of the high protein eating plan. Athletes should realize that much of the weight lost on these diets is a result of a decrease in total calories and the water loss that occurs with muscle glycogen depletion. If you perform high intensity or endurance training you probably know that glycogen depletion is one of the reasons athletes 'bonk' or 'hit the wall' in endurance competition. Without enough easy to access energy, in the form of glycogen, we simply run out of fuel.
