    yesterday arvo had a extra sesh with some mates, just chucked some wraps on and squat 190 x 3, 220 x 2. Whippy bar and chickened out, wanted a triple at 220.
  6. ADHD, Medication and Building Muscle

    This might suggest they could progress through puberty slower between 14-16 yrs.. https://www.mja.com.au/journal/2013/198/1/growth-and-pubertal-development-adolescent-boys-stimulant-medication-attention
  7. ADHD, Medication and Building Muscle

    This paper might suggest not, although the study was only 4 weeks in design: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5408967/
  8. ADHD, Medication and Building Muscle

    Maybe look into the mechanisms of ADHD and how to negate it with lifestyle changes .. Knock out junk food: Sugars, grains, vegetable seed oils (especially omega-6).. Increase omega-3 consumption, as well as other healthy fats: 8 and 10 carbon MCT oils.. Limit LED exposure from TV's, gaming devices, mobile phones etc..
  9. ADHD, Medication and Building Muscle

    Or does already having ADHD during childhood or the introduction of medication during childhood present hormonal changes that could extend onto adulthood? Especially during the pre-pubescent stages? Anyone with ADHD please chime in. My boys a beast and deserves to look like one!
  10. I have a friend who is ADHD, taking ritalin and quetiapine.. he's beyond strong but has difficulty adding muscle mass which I'm baffled on. His training needs honing in but tbh any average Joe would see results from the same application of training so my question is 1. Does Ritalin or Quetiapine affect hormonal levels, test, natural hgh levels etc And 2. Can he take a sarm such as rad140 or mk677 without adding any strain to his system. Will it work or are his natural hormonal levels already/or will become too compromised? Thank you

  15. LOW T & TRT

    Dr David Sinclair recommends metformin for its health benefits regards longevity, I've read some of the research he put forward, after consultation with my Dr it was decided adopting a keto style diet would confer similar effects on insulin sensitivity, fat loss, and overall longevity, but without the side effects..

    W8d4 squat 150 5x7
  17. Earlier
  18. LOW T & TRT

    I never said it was, a fat lost pill, though research shows it can provide weight loss benefits for some people, through this research it does not seem to be idiotic at all, as it seems to help some people. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/23147210/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3308305/ Personally I have it and don't use it, I like the research surrounding the insulin sensitivity from this compound but I need more knowledge on this compound, which is why I asked. If the best advice to educate me is Taking it as one is idiotic. then I guess I am done here. I apologise for offending the powers that be. Be safe ... Ciao

    W8d3 bench 102.5 7x5 curls
  20. LOW T & TRT

    Metformin isn’t a fatlose pill. Taking it as one is idiotic.

    w8d2 squat 140 4x9
  22. LOW T & TRT

    I have no complaints, but putting Dr Love on the shelf, what if I did both??? 500mg per day on keto diet or low fat low carb high protein diet, yes I maybe just thinking out loud. I cant say I am not curious of what the results would be. All In the name of science of course.
  23. LOW T & TRT

    Dr's love prescribing drugs for no logical reason... Metformin decreases hepatic glucose production, decreases intestinal absorption of glucose, so why not just lower glucose intake..?????

  26. LOW T & TRT

    TOTALLY APPRECIATE THE INSIGHT .. I started the AI for 2 reasons: 1) nipples for some stupid reason started to get sensitive doctor told me to take 1mg per day arimidex (BUT) after a tour through these forums and others I brought a pill cuter and take 1/2 mg EOD and the nipples stop hurting and the estrogen level in the blood started to lower, I am quite cautious but educate myself on these things which is quite a trip, I suspect the nipple sensitivity was due to the aromatiastion to estrogen which is the 2nd reason why I started to use them, no more sore tender nipples (LOL) If micro-dosing is pointless I wont bother with it and will put that down to blond moment and move on (LOL) at present I am using the Sustanon 250 @ 176mg @1ml (every 10-14 days) to finish what I have as my Doc has changed me onto 200 mgs Cypionate @ 2 mls I am thinking that 1ml every 7-10 days as I am trying to balance out my injections when I switch. TB500 - BPC157 info, thank you so much, I am going to give your customs / pet idea a try, as I am a member on the NZKC that occasionally breeds bull terriers :) its is worth a shot. ------------------------------------------- I was prescribed metformin told it will help cut some weight and help with insulin sensitivity etc .. BUT I am continuously learning more about it. feel free to educate us on the pros and cons Thank you for the awesome advice

  28. Hi Everyone, My name is Jason, I'm the Harm Reduction Lead for the New Zealand Needle Exchange Programme. I joined the site because I thought it might be a good place to learn some more about steroid / PIEDs use in New Zealand. I would like to see our staff around NZ have more knowledge in this area so we can provide better service to clients who use steroids / PIEDs. I also wanted to let you know that the New Zealand Needle Exchange Programme has just launched an online shop. You can purchase injecting equipment from our online store and it will be delivered by courier in discreet packaging with no mention of the needle exchange visible on the outside. You can access the store via our website https://www.nznep.org.nz or directly at https://bit.ly/nznep-shop If there is anyone who would be interested in helping us improve the service to better serve people who use steroids / PIEDs feel free to get in touch!
