godsgifttoearth got a reaction from arbffgadm100 in Recomp course to run
its a car crash waiting to happen, going from injured to a full on cycle and training after a long lay off.
you will make cycle like gains without the gear once you start training. you don't lose the myonuclei in your muscle when you detrain. that means you will regain what was lost at an insane rate.
once you've rebounded and made sure you're not messing up connective tissues and old injuries, think about getting into a cycle.
i know its really tempting to do, I've done it before but I also ended up rupturing a bicep because my strength and size blew up way faster than my body was able to handle.
godsgifttoearth got a reaction from Sasnak in Cenzo Pharma Particle in vial
its either a lump of rubber from the stopper or its something that is probably not otherwise meant to be there.
so scenario 1 with lump of stopper is usually not to wory.
scenario 2 means the vial wasn't cleaned properly or the gear wasn't filtered into the vial in a sterile way.
if you think its scenario 2, never use their gear again.
godsgifttoearth got a reaction from stuey99 in Prop vs. Enanthate for cruise
a nice test prop is good for subq pins 3x per week with a 29g. Prop tends to give me lower E2 when pinning subq vs a longer ester as well, which is good when i'm fatter.
i can actually do 40mg test prop SubQ every other day and continue to make leaner "cruise" gains, whereas 180mg Test E IM per week basically puts me in a holding pattern or fatter gains.
i get sick of the pinning eventually but its worth doing for bridges between big blasts before going on a recovery phase.
Blast -> subq prop EoD -> Blast - IM test E weekly.
godsgifttoearth got a reaction from swole troll in Creatine and AAS
so like, creatine is needed to recover ATP from ADP.
When you're using weights, you're basically running completely off the phosphocreatine energy system. Getting supraphysiological levels of phosphocreatine means you can get more reps and recover quicker.
more reps at any given weight = more stimulation of high threshold motor units. high threshold motor unit recruitment is proposed as key to hypertrophy and "effective reps".
Shorter rest periods mean that more of the actin-myosin cross bridges remain formed, so you're then able to recruit more of the high threshold motor units in lesser reps, again, suggesting better for hypertrophy.
If you're only blasting weights in the 1-3RM range then creatine won't do much and you won't have to worry about rest periods as you're going to be waiting long enough to fully recover your CNS ability to recruit fibres fully. If you're training sub-max then creatine helps steroids or not.
godsgifttoearth got a reaction from gavzilla in Lower Libido Causes
the "on feeling" generally wears off. its probably one of the reasons people keep upping doses constantly to get the "on feeling" or it must not be working.
i get higher libido with a single sust injection per week, as i get the surge at the start followed by a much lower level but even that wears off after a few weeks.
if you have no issues with erection quality and can be put in the mood for sex, when someone instigates it and are otherwise interested in it (looking at people you're attracted to, porn) then i'd say its nothing to worry about, its normal, don't keep taking more stuff to try and fix it. you're not broken.
also with a cruise, you find that less is better for libido usually. if you're not big ramy huge, you don't need 250/week. 125-180 is more than enoguh for even the biggest dudes and keeps things at the top end of normal all the time.
godsgifttoearth got a reaction from DJAlpha in Are these estrogen levels good ?
tis fine. usually people with lower e2 are on the leaner side of things.
your precycle bloods for testosterone and estrogen don't mean much. if you have not cycled before, don't use a load of different compounds at once as you won't have the slightest idea what causes what side to happen. if its test at 600/week then that's "reasonably safe" as its been looked at in the medical literature. past a certain point, you don't get as much conversion to estrogen, so the AI requirements stall out at a certain dose. if you then add extra compounds to a 600mg/week cycle at a later date, you know a baseline to work from, so you know if your blood pressure goes through the roof, its the new compound or the total mg's you#re using
godsgifttoearth got a reaction from feelinfine in Benefits of longer vs standard cycles?
gains wise no. you're supra physiological at all times.
sides wise, yes. you're usually more susceptible to estrogen related problems once vs twice per week. its also harder to control estrogen. twice per week with an AI on pin day usually keeps most things smooth.
if you're not blasting and cruising then you don't need to worry about injection site scar tissue building up. that's one of the main reasons why people will try and pin once per week.
godsgifttoearth got a reaction from Lloyd H in Does subq injection give PIP or do i have a problem?
yes it can cause PiP. worst being a big red coin sized bruise that hurts like hell.
you need to make sure you have low solvent gear and it's usually best to use the fat on your ass instead of tummy as its not as sensitive
godsgifttoearth got a reaction from Sasnak in Best way to take an oral?
tried this years ago with liquid home brew. changes how some stuff actually works. dbol sublingual has way less water. so there's something to the first pass elimination theory. superdrol is apparently way less anabolic injected than it is orally.
unless there was some real science behind the differing properties, I'd just take it with some grapefruit juice/piperin and be done with it
godsgifttoearth reacted to kruz in Benefits of longer vs standard cycles?
I'm not sure what the study you posted is as I can't view it on my phone, but this one basically shows that myostatin peaks at week 8 but then returns to baseline. They gave participants 600mg test a week. Myostatin peaked at week 8 and when measured at week 20 was back to baseline.
godsgifttoearth got a reaction from Mrmotivator in Do high dosages make you eat more/burn more kcal
"lean ground beef and potatoes. Probably around 1000 kcalsx"
excluding adding extra oil, that would be like 500g beef mince when raw and 500g potatoes with skin. you sure you're eating as much as you think you are?
godsgifttoearth got a reaction from Shergar in Is this cycle safe/ good? (UPDATED)
I'd tweak it a bit.
suatanon and deca is a nightmare. it spikes quick for a few days then drops like a stone, right when the deca starts spiking. messes with libido even more than usual and makes controlling e2 a pain. use test e instead.
I wouldn't run ostarine with such low doses of aas. it crashes shbg which makes the anabolics clear much quicker. not so bad when you're doing big doses with a pin every other day.
finisteride can offset some of the deca issues but drops DHT, so can leave you open to e2 issues/gyno.
the nolva dose is utterly pointless until PCT. deca can mess you up long term so be prepared to PCT for up to 8 weeks.
adex for that amount of test and deca, with finisteride would probably be better off 0.5mg 2-3x per week. if you want to use an oral, proviron would be useful. a DHT with deca is almost a must for me.
godsgifttoearth got a reaction from Tricky in ROHM thermo lipid
that's the point tho. as you diet cortisol goes up, T3 goes down. anabolics can offset the muscle loss from cortisol and you top up the dropped levels of t3 once they start to drop and weight loss slows. why use everything at the start when the easy fat loss happens and then have nothing left when it gets hard? the clen stops doing much very quickly and t3 smashes LBM. better to use at the last 4-6 weeks of a cut.
godsgifttoearth got a reaction from kruz in Next cycle to go with test?
you could just add some EQ to whatever your last test cycle was. EQ is useful cos its just as anabolic as test but less androgenic, so its "milder" in terms of s**t like acne, hairy shoulders, melon sized prostate.
ive just tried EQ for the first time and its also a fairly useful AI in its own right. 600mg test with 300mg EQ gives me bloods on par with using arimidex at 0.5mg twice per week. your mileage will vary. was a very uneventful cycle as far as sides went as well. used 50mg var with it as well.
godsgifttoearth got a reaction from Sasnak in 10ml Sterile and sealed Vials ?
there's a difference, a fairly big one, between certified sterile vials and just clean ones.
I'm sure most will wash everything with isoprop before assembling. some may even autoclave. very much doubt any small suppliers are doing all the above in a clean room then filling with filtered nitrogen gas.
there's an argument to be had about just how sterile they need to be but there's inherit risk buying from in certified sources as a rinse with isoprop can still leave nasties.
