  1. I picked this up from a uk source online. Thoughts?
  2. Hi guys, I've been lifting for the past 4 years or so but never managed to gain much muscle. About a year and a half ago I noticed low libido, constant tiredness and a craving for sweets and hunger that wasn't common to me. I went to my GP who ran a lot of tests before sending me to endocrinology... ...long story short I was diagnosed with low test. I started on gels but because it was a hassle I chose injections. Tried Nebido which gave me a horrible allergic reaction and have been on Sustanon now for a while. Sustanon was great initially but I've noticed that I'd feel fantastic for a week and then progressively back to "tired low energy" after a week or a week and a half. Blood tests showed that my test was still low so I've been pinning every 2 weeks consistently. Things got better but I've noticed a few things. I get hungry a lot and quite often - it's been difficult to track macros or even work a diet which tends to get me upset. I've managed to grow some muscle but I've noticed that my body can look a bit bloated. Maybe water retention? I'm quite active (gym at least 3x a week and walk at least a good couple/ 3 hours per day). Is this normal as a side effect? I've been looking into other people's reports and noticed that some guys mention the increased appetite. I'm quite lean (around 10/12% BF) and was told that as testosterone would increase lean mass, that'd make me hungrier. I'm just looking for some other experiences on it and how people deal with it. Also have you managed to gain muscle whilst on it? I don't tend to notice it but friends have mentioned that my physique looks bigger/fuller. Thanks,
  3. Good morning guys Got my hands on some rip blend. Test prop 100mg, mast prop 100mg, tren ace 75mg. Just wondered if it would be worth adding in some extras? Its my first time with tren so I'll see how I react to it at this dose. But maybe extra test and mast? I have a few vials of both (and extra tren if needed) my goals are to maintain or maybe drop a little body fat and add some lean mass. Quick cycle history, did a few test prop cycles when training Muay Thai twice a day, 6 days a week. For recovery and maintaining muscle mass really, but gained well on them. My last cycle was (almost) a success. Did a dbol, test enth, mast enth cycle. Ate like a trooper and gained really well. The second half of the cycle I was in Thailand and caught some crazy sickness right before PCT. not your normal Bangkok belly, I was ill for 2 weeks, couldn't eat a solid meal for over a week. Dropped over 20lbs, obviously a lot of water but also definitely muscle and body fat, it f's you up mentally when you drop a t shirt size almost overnight. The good thing is I'm really lean and ready to bulk. My stats age 32, height 5'8", weight 180lbs, body fat less than 10% Proposed cycle rip blend 1ml eod with added test and mast so... 8 weeks Test prop 150mg eod mast prop 150mg eod tren ace 75mg eod arimidex and hcg from beginning of cycle I would carry on with test prop for a couple more weeks until the tren has cleared. PCT clomid 100/50/50/50 tamoxifen 20/20/20/20 DAA 3g per day any thoughts on this cycle for a lean bulk?
  4. I'm not sure I fully understand the relationship between Testosterone and ketosis. I know the basics, such as that a keto diet is also supposed to be testo-boosting, but I wonder if there is more to that. Amongst other things, I wonder if higher testosterone means more efficient ketosis and fat-adaptation. Or if higher testosterone means more muscle-sparing metabolism while during keto.
  5. Yooo how is everyone? Started my 10week test e cycle a couple weeks back, and it may just be psychological but I'm seeing some gains VERY early in the cycle. I'm 2 weeks in, and all my muscles look fuller, my stretch marks have started to get far worse and I already feel like a beast! I imagine I can put this down to water retention and psychological impact but what are your thoughts? Maybe my body is responding really well, it's my first cycle and I'm pinning 500mgs/week every Wednesday, if this is how I'm feeling now I can't imagine what I'm gonna feel like at the end of my cycle haha! Stats wise I'm 87kg, eating 250g protein per day and training hard for 2 hours 5-6 times a week. Any of you guys ever experienced this/know anyone that has?
  6. Ok. So let me run this down. I'm 25yo male. 5'8. 153 pounds. I want a decent bulking cycle. Nothing crazy but looking up to 10-15 pounds of muscle and strength. What do you guys think? Week 1-10: 500mg Test Enan or Cyp/ .5mg of arimadex every other day for gyno check (I am susceptible to gyno) Week 11-12: HCG amount? To help boost natural Test creation. Week 13-15: 50mg clomid every day sees good? Or needs some work?
  7. Just needing some help / advice, any input is appreciated Stats: 23, 6ft, 95kg, 11% BF Looking to get fairly lean, maybe do an amateur competition summertime, i'm looking to do a cycle just to give me that extra boost! (not my first cycle) Dont need diet or training advice, just opinions purely on the below cycle (Fasted cardio ever morning & Weights after work) Test Prop @ 100mg / ml @ 1x ED - 16 Weeks Masteron @ 100mg / ml @ 1x EOD - 16 Weeks Anavar @ 50mg ED weeks 1-2 & then 100mg ED weeks 3-16 Also running some peptides, (GHRP-2 & CJC-1295 MOD GRF 1-29 W/O DAC, but dont need advice on these) Possibility of clen nearer the comp, just to give me that drier more vascular look Thanks
  8. How do you rate Alpha Pharma Test E (Testobolin) 250mg/ml which comes in amps? Is this good to go? Cheers
  9. I am on Test Prop, 550 mg/week 12 week cycle. Started week 2 yesterday. My gear is definitely legit, Farmak Test Prop bought in Ukraine, in a pharmacy. So far, the only sides I could see are: testicles tingle, slightly ache and seem to have become considerably smaller. Also felt some weird sensation in nipples at times, especially the 1st week. I am not running any AI or anything else. Is this normal that the side effects at such dose are so minor?
  10. Hello there! I am currently in Athens and facing a little problem. I did my researches on galinos.gr and had a little shopping list. I can get everything otc here, but there are no Testosterone ampulles to get in Athens at all. I speak a little greek and have asked in over 40 pharmacies for all manufacturers. No Bayer Testovirox, no norma testosterone. Always the same answer: It is not available anymore, the production has been stopped. The pharmacists have also been calling in their warehouses, but there is absolutely nothing here. Does someone know if any test will be ever available again in greek pharmacies?
  11. Hi everyone! I am now doing my 1st week of a test Propionate cycle, with currently planned weekly dosage of 550 mg. The aim of the cycle is to gain as much lean muscle mass/mass/weight as possible. I hav enough Prop for 12 weeks if I run it at 550mg. However, I am really worried about making the gains so am thinking of reducing the cycle length to 7-8 weeks while increasing the dosage of prop to 650-750 per week. Do you think it is better to have a higher dosage shorter cycle vs lower dosage like I planned originally and do the cycle for 12 weeks? this is my 2nd cycle after a long long break from AAS
  12. I am currently on a Test only cycle and am only at day 4 of my 12 week cycle. I was thinking about the following. Do you generally require more calories and protein to build lean mass/muscle when taking steroids/on cycle vs training naturally? Is the risk of fat gain less on cycle?
  13. Hi everyone! I have started a Test Prop only Bulking Cycle and was originally planning to do 150 mg EOD. If I am correct, this works out as 525 mg per week. Planning to run it 10 weeks. The goal is to gain as much mass as possible. Do you think 150 mg EOD is enough to see good gains? Or should I bump it to 600 mg per week? This is my second cycle after many years off
  14. New kid on the block here. Finally decided to take the "plunge" and join the dark side after years of natty training. Purchased a vial of sust from a reputable source. 4 days ago I pinned 1.25cc in my right quad. Followed proper sanitation controls and aspirated. However, due to first time nerves and a bit of a shaky hand. I felt like I moved the needle about a bit once it was in. I also got nervous and plunged it in about 10 seconds. Pulled out the needle and it bled a bit. I can clearly see that I shot through a capillary close to he surface. All felt fine for about 12 hours. Then I trained legs and omfg did it start hurting after that. Fast forward 4 days and I'm limping about the place, barely able I bend my leg past about 60 degrees. Looks a little swollen but no redness/fever/hotness. I'm meant to be going away on holiday in a few days. My question is should I get it checked out by a doc before then as the pain hasn't got any better? Or am I just suffering from a virgin muscle and poor pinning technique. Thanks.
  15.

  16. Hello mates, I'm going soon to Sofia (Bulgary) in order to get some legit roids. I want to get enough Test (Omnadren) and some other drugs (HCG, tamoxi, anastrozol, proviron) for two 12 weeks cycles (500mg/week of test for 12 weeks + 4 weeks pct). I read that you can get easily Omnadren (Sustanon), HCG, Tamoxifen, Anastrozol (Arimidex) and Proviron. Basically I think I've got two options: 1st - Bring back 1 cycle with me into the flight and to send back to UK the other one through the mail. 2nd - Bring all the stuff myself in the flight (which is going to be stuff for 2 cycles, 10 boxes of omnadren more the other drugs). From what I know in UK is legal to import enough gear in person for 12 weeks but it is ilegal to do it by mail, but customs don't say nothing specific about how many gear is enough for 12 weeks so I'm a bit confused. Anyone has any suggestion or know something about that? Any experience or suggestion about sending roids by mail? Probably if I bring everything with me nothing is going to happen but I'm not sure. Thanks mates,
  17. Hi Guys, I did a test+tren cycle a year and a half ago and ended up developing gyno on both sides. I did try taking letro back then but it did not really work As of now, I am wanting to get rid of the gyno I have got. Is there a way out? I am willing to go for any kind of PCT for the same.
  18. Need some advice, Really want to get my first cycle going and just bought some aburaihan Test E online. I'm a 2 weeks and 4 pins in and feel no different, did some more research and found there's a load of fakes out there. Here's some pics of the stuff i was sent, are these fake? or does enanthate take a few weeks to kick in coz it's a longer ester? I know you're probably thinking 'what a prat' and believe me I feel like one but i'm new to this and just want some advise form people in the know coz nobody i know is on the gear...any advice would be appreciated. Cheers
  19. This is a log of my 2nd cycle, anyone planning on doing something similar can refer to my experience with these compounds stacked. Stats: Age: 37 Height: 5'11 Weight: 12 stone, 76kg Got back into lifting in 2009, experimented with different types of training, body weights, light weights high reps, heavy weights low reps, circuit training etc..... learn't about different forms of dieting, experimented with different cutting and bulking regimes, tried a vast spectrum of supplements and extensively researched supps and steroids. Cycle history: First real cycle was Test E and Tbol, 12 weeks Test E at 500mg per week divided in 2 injections per week. Pinning quads only rotating each time. Tbol at 50mg last 4 weeks. Ran HCG from first to last Test pin at 500 iu per week with adex at 0.25 mg EOD. PCT Nolva 40/40/40/40, Clomid 50/50/50/50. Great cycle, no problems, absolute breeze, didn't feel shut down at any point, pip from the Test wasn't great but not too bad either. Went from 76kg to 85kg. Prior to the above I did a 7 week run of 11 oxo which I don't really class as a cycle, 300/300/400/400/400/600/600, pct 8 weeks of Core Alpha Test booster. Good results, leaned out, nice pumps and recomp. My 2nd cycle I did just before summer 2016 went as below: week 1- 10 T400 @ 400mg per week, split in two pins Saturday and Tuesday. HCG @ 500iu once a week straight after Test pin Arimidex @ 0.25 / 0.5mg EOD week 1 - 4 LGD 4033 @ 8mg per day Week 1- 8 Tbol @50mg per day, I had a 6 week supply but run at Mon - Fri only, not on weekends so it stretched out to 8 weeks Week 7 - 10 Trenavar @ 60mg per day Week 8 - 12 11 Oxo @ 600/600/600/900 Week 12 - 16 Nolva - 40/40/40/40 Clomid - 50/50/50/50 Anabolic Freak test booster half way through Nolva and Clomid PCT for 4 weeks Ran Core Alpha 2 weeks after that for 4 weeks Cycle support throughout cycle and PCT was Pure Cycle Protect as well as Liv 52. I use Animal Pak all year round along with cod liver oil capsules. I only did the Trenavar at the end for just 3 weeks as it was last minute decision so wanted to test the waters, ran a bottle of Inhibit P and followed it with a bottle of Prolactrone to keep prolactin in check. didn't think it was necessary to use Caber on this occasion. The 11 oxo added some icing to the cake as an addition at the end and a bridge into PCT. Solid leaning out and vascular effects. All in all it was another great cycle. Very lean results with significant muscle density. I didn't weigh myself on this occasion, but in comparison to my first cycle which was predominantly based around a clean bulk, this was much leaner with more quality mass and definition. However moving forward I think I would prefer to keep it simpler in regards to how many different compounds I include. The Tbol did it's job, it's mild at 50mg per day but the vascularity was apparent and it complimented the Test. Had mild headaches on the first few days after use but this soon went away. LGD, no idea if this did anything at all so I can't comment on it. Any size or pumps in the first 4 weeks could have been the test and Tbol. Trenavar (German Pharmaceuticals), this helped lean me out a fair bit adding definition, enhancing vascularity and fat loss. No noticeable strength gains but keepable aesthetic results. No Tren sides to report besides night sweats, maybe a very slight under the weather type feeling as others have reported but that could have easily been the issues I had with the very painful pip from the Test 400. As for the T400, a combination of prop, Enen and Cyp. This was definitely effective and you can feel the prop kicking in as soon as you inject. The first injection in the quad went without a problem, the pip was bad but nothing too dramatic. However after the 2nd pin things started to get very painful. From then on the pip was horrendous, the site would swell up for a few days then calm down, it wasn't an infection as it passed and I'm clinical with the sterile details. I was limping and had to take Ibuprofen to ease the pain. Another issue which I didn't experience before was hitting nerves in my quads. I was injecting in the same part of quads as before (outer side) with a 1 inch needle as previously used. The first time this happened I could feel an uncomfortable pain as the needle went in over half way, not a sharp pain, just an uncomfortable one, so I pulled the needle back a bit to get out of that zone as it didn't feel right, then injected. Soon as I pulled the needle out I felt like I was about to faint, I had to concentrate hard not too, started sweating, feeling sick and week, stumbled out my room walking round the flat like a mad man trying to get myself back to normal, injection site swelled up, managed to focus and power through it, had a glass of water and everything was fine. It was an eventful afternoon. Apparently that was due to hitting a nerve and my blood or sugar levels dropping. From then on if something didn't feel right I'd draw out and start again, I found out that apparently the best part of the quad where there are the least / or no nerves is the upper on the outer side were your pockets are. Injecting there didn't give me any issues in regards to hitting nerves but the pip and swelling was still there. PCT went smooth, I didn't feel shutdown or suppressed at any point. Besides the pip making me feel ill everything else went smoothly as planned. Kept about 80% of the size a few weeks after PCT, the form, recomp, definition and vascularity remained. My gym routine is 2 body parts per session, 4 different exercises on each body part, 4 sets with an 8 - 10 rep range. I'm in the gym around 4 to 6 days a week, on days I don't go I do 12 rounds of shadow boxing at home, 3 minutes with 30 sec break. Good form of cardio too. My diet on cycle consisted of oats, whey protein, chicken, vegtables, lentils. Pretty much same thing every day, around 6 meals a day, occasional rice and bread. Calories were around 2300 to 3200. I've been through numerous, bulking, lean bulk and cutting regimes and I don't need excessively high calories to make quality lean gains, it just makes me fat and out of shape with no extra real muscle. At the start the calories were at the lower end, towards middle and end they were higher as I could make more effective use of it. Every cycle is a learning experience, personally for me I think simplicity is best, next cycle contemplating Test & Tren E, MAYBE throw Anavar in there if it's good quality close to the real thing, if not then Test and Tren is plenty. Will most likely aim for glute injections next time round. Cycle including PCT ended mid August, got bloods done in October, everything came back in normal levels, cholesterol was a little above normal range which could have been due to other factors around that time such as diet. Even though I eat clean year round with minimal chat meals, high carbs for me leads to more fat = potential rise in cholesterol. At the moment I've trimmed down by keeping it pretty much just chicken / meat with broccoli, spinach and mixed salad. Feel great and Highly recommend it.
  20. I'm looking to come off a long blast and cruise cycle soon (2.5 years) as I'm looking to start a family with my other half, blasts were 500mg Test E and cruise on 200mg. Any help on what the best PCT protocol would be and when to get blood work etc.
  21. Hey guys. A mate of mine bangs a gram of test a week, doesn't take any AI or SERM and he says he feels fantastic. I believe the dose/gear is real as he's strong as hell and grows like fook. He says he takes test enanthate and sustanon on their tod as he doesn't get on well with deca or tren. However, if I go over, say, 800mg of test a week, I tend to curl up into a coma and cease to function (although I can tolerate higher doses of shorter esters better). For those of you who run a ton of test (what I'd consider a gram or more), how do you deal with the sides? Is it simple a case of managing your estrogen or do some guys just have their limits? I'd love to try another run on high test but don't fancy wanting to sleep all the time. Cheers.
  22. Hi guys. Having a couple of issues on cycle. I'm currently on 500mg test cypionate/400mg mast enanthate/400mg NPP a week at the minute. I pin every three days and take 12.5mg of aromasin the same time as I do my shots. Now the issue seems to be the day after I feel like crap, the day after that I feel like crap and then by the time it comes to pin again I'm starting to feel better. When I say crap, I mean chronic back pumps - to the point where walking anywhere for longer than 10 minutes becomes a task - being hot all the time, spotty, loss of libido (can get a rod on just don't really fancy it) and lethargic. These all tend to be symptoms of either high test or high estrogen. Any ideas how to rectify it? Switch aromasin to EOD rather than E3D? If using masteron, do I reduce the frequency of aromasin - maybe twice a week? I've not been running caber so progresterone might be an issue, but I assumed 400mg NPP, as well as using aromasin, wouldn't be an issue. Might just reduce the amount of gear I'm taking - maybe drop the masteron slightly or completely - to see if that makes much of a difference. Been using same labs as usually do so believe all gear is legit. Cheers.
  23. First off, I'm 18, lifting for about 2 years and 8 months, I know this is not recommended for anyone under 25, consider this me just educating myself on the subject, if i was to consider a 12 week testosterone cypionate cycle (inject) of 500mg per week, (250 twice) what side effects post cycle should I expect? I understand that my natural testosterone levels will decrease well below their natural levels and will remain like that after I cease the artificial hormones, does pct stop or at least reduce this? What sort of gains retention could I be expecting? I would appreciate educated and reasonable answers rather than being bashed for inquiring about this at this age, that k you. Also, if th result is an inevitable period of low test in my system, how long would this be for? And what would this mean for me? Thanks again
