Rad 140 is the gear that packs on the muscle, i used it for a week solo before adding ostarine into a stack for endurance i was extremely impressed with the strength gains and endurance gains on this stack. I packed on 10 kgs in a little over a appetite went through the roof when i also added the hgh secretoque into the stack on the theory the extra hgh produced by the secretoque stimulating the pituitary gland would help me keep my gains. If you think rad140 isnt effective the juice you used was bunk. Rad 140 is the biz, the only reason im not still taking sarms is because i was so fatigued mentally and physically while on cycle. I was sleeping up to 14 hours out of every 24 holding down a full time job as well as training. I understand the sleep was necessary for muscle growth but my quality of life suffered due to the overwelming fatigue. A sensible dbol/test e cycle actually gives slower results than sarms but without the fatigue. Another odd side i experienced on sarms was aching balls, i dropped my dose and thevpain went away. I think rad140 puts your balls into overdrive and could be useful in a pct protocol after an aas cycle. Diggin ya blog john doe ya seem to be a cool dude. Good shit bro.
Dave, let me clear the air here on some of the confusion… I recommend the 1 vial cycle for someone who is either A. younger or either B. already has high levels of natural testosterone. Now, the typical middle aged male who already had declining levels of natural testosterone COULD go with 500 mg/wk for 10 wks. Recovery is recovery at that point and if you’re going to do it then I see nothing wrong with getting the most out of that first cycle. But what you have to realize is a male with a starting level of high average test levels can still yield the same benefits of someone who is middle range-low end of normal and uses 500mg/wk of test. In either case the person can still gain a solid 20 lbs of muscle from either 1 or 2 vials, the determining factor on this is what they were at to begin with
As alluded to above, one very important thing to acknowledge when using AAS (whether taking one hormone, stacking or cycling) is the risk of harmful side effects. Within a steroid cycle, the users will often stack other non-anabolic hormones into their program to maximize specific cycle objectives for example: the addition of drugs like Clenbuterol and/or Cytomel /T3 augment cutting/definition cycles; others called aromatase inhibitors (estrogen reducing drugs) like Letrozole . Letro and Anastrozole Arimidex are often included to inhibit the conversion of excess testosterone to negatively cycle impacting estrogen and; incorporating post-cycle therapy (PCT) drugs such as the synthetic estrogens Tamoxifen . Nolvadex , or Clomiphene Citrate . Clomid (which act as anti-estrogens in the male body), can be used alone, together, or in conjunction with those like Mesterolone . Proviron and Human Chorionic Gonadotropin ( HCG ) during PCT to bridge the gap between the end of a steroid cycle (synthetic testosterone usage) and the restoration of the bodys natural testosterone production. These drugs too must be researched, and controlled in similar fashion to AAS. Thus, steroid cycles can be as simple or complex as the users individualized goals, cycle histories and levels of understanding. Below are three samples of AAS stacked cycles of varying complexity along with a beginning PCT sample, and an explanation of goal intention & rationale for the selected compounds, dosages & durations. These illustrations and commentaries will provide a better understanding of what stacking and cycling are along with the many nuances they require.
