  1. SARMS

    I guess drop the dose to 15 or less man, see how it goes, may as well considering you've already bought it. It's a rough side effect that only some people seem to get, wish I could help more man. Extra coffee? hahah
  2. Rolled Shoulders fix

    Ayo fam, thought I'd stop in and link this, good vid.
  3. SARMS

    At what dose?
  4. SARMS

    It's all a big scheme to harvest stem cells, the next big steroid haha
  5. Rolled Shoulders fix

    I've managed it more with chest stretching, and posture cues. No amount of rowing and pull movements really helped my posture, it was a mind muscle thing for me. That said face pulls were handy. Also getting under the incline bar bench with a light load and using it as a weighted stretch was farken orgasmic. #nohomodoe
  6. SARMS

    Yeah it's entirely reversible as soon as, or soon after discontinuing the drug. I should correct myself here, and say its more an issue with glucose tolerance than insulin sensitivity, same real world effect though. Poor glucose control. I've heard that it is because of competition with IGF1, but I'm not entirely sure if that's scientifically accurate. This study shows that fasting glucose is normal, but tolerance, not so much. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9467542 Why this matters vs real hgh, is that mk677 causes multiple gh spikes throughout the day, meaning poor glucose tolerance throughout, where real gh, you get the impact of gh within a predictable window, evening from what I understand in the context of general health, not max gains. So you usually don't eat around those times and don't face this issue as much. That's what I was meaning by multiple spikes being bad, or troublesome. You can see the multiple spikes during the day here: https://academic.oup.com/jcem/article/82/10/3455/2823475 I don't know much about hgh for sports performance, so maybe someone more experienced can chime in on the use of hgh, and insulin. My intention for it was to see if I could get some benefits of increasing hgh for general health and joint health, tendon repair etc, any cosmetic effects after that were a bonus to me. But having uncontrollable and constant spikes in gh and the relationship with poor glucose control, its not exactly the best solution, or a total replacement for real hgh. It's cheap though team. So I mean, There is a use for it no doubt. But with the general advice I've seen for mk677 of "you should run it for 6 months to see benefits" isn't entirely benign info considering the time you would be exposing your body to high blood sugars. It's worth being aware of.
  7. SARMS

    Well to start there's a whole bunch that work through different pathways that will help any cycle. Like mk677, or cardarine. But for the roid replacements. Such as lgd and ostarine. It's probably cheaper and more effective to use an oral steroid. But if the sides are too much. Thanks yeah sarms are a great replacement and that could be where the real value comes in. Tolerance. Just give it a hoon man. See if it's something for you.
  8. SARMS

    For what purpose? They work, but they are nothing like AAS, I think of them as AAS with a ceiling. As in they seem to have diminishing returns in many cases, that limit the results possible from them. I'm fascinated with them though. I've tried ostarine and mk677. Ostarine was cool, better pumps in the gym, slight performance increase, and some kgs at the end of it. Very mild though. LGD Looks amazing, but as these anabolic sarms do cause mild shutdown it's a good idea to have a PCT ready, you really have to consider if you think those gains are worth the sarm and the PCT over just oral AAS plus PCT. Mk 677, I've actually got into recently at varying doses, maybe I can update with my experience later. But so far better sleep, slightly fuller muscles. No hunger or bloating, but savage insulin resistance. It doesn't necessarily cause gh bleed, but it causes multiple spikes of gh throughout the day. That's been the only put off for me so far, even on a low carb diet. It's definitely not a long term replacement for actual hgh as far as I can tell. But its the cheapest way to get gh through other means, you can google blood work from others who have done it, it's quite impressive.

    no where note worthy haha, how you been homie?
  10. Conor McGregor or Floyd Mayweather?

    It's like discussion of fedor vs whoever. Even if coner beats mayweather, he'll never be able to beat him at his peak. There's always going to be speculation, and it's so hard to set up these phenoms against each other when they peak at different times. I used to think coner was a shittalking kent until he lost and came back like a champ. I'd love to see him fight mayweather...and woodley, and anyone really hhaha.

  12. Upping TRT

    fkn lol, this was amazing. Post of the year
  13. It would be so hard to know what "recovered" actually means without some blood tests. I've only blasted and cruised once for just under a year. No more than 800gm of gear per blast and 150-250 for the cruise portion. Ran Nolva and Adex for PCT 40 40 20 20 then leftovers for Nolva and adex I ran at 1mg for as long as it lasted. I felt I got most of my production back pretty early on within a week of starting PCT, but i still didn't feel 100% right for about 2 months after stopping. Mainly based on sex drive, and gym sessions. That can be because of so many other factors though and it's still an issue of grounding your idea of recovery on just feeling though. I don't really experience any drastic crash, so I find it hard to judge regardless. My current blood tests for testosterone come back normal, slightly higher than my last one but nothing significant. From hearing others talk about recovery, it sounds like almost all people recover. To what degree no one really knows. If you can,it's a good idea to get a blood test before so you have some sort of marker as to where you are currently, and at least give you some real idea of whats going on in your body other than going by how you feel. When/if I go on another cycle, I think I'd rather do a longish cycle and then just come off. I dont really see the need to be pinning and spending money just to maintain a slightly higher(still significant but nothing like 500mg/pw) level of test. Depends how into bodybuilding you are I guess. Good luck matey.
  14. Worst food stories..

    Kina.... Tried to man up and take a massive scoop of dat shit. Spent 20 mins trying to down it without yakking. Fucking foul.
  15. Sorry to hear about your friend woody. Did he get diabetic ketoacidosis? If you know what brain chemicals were effected that info would be handy, otherwise I have no idea about that. My thoughts on why relying less on insulin is a good thing is beacause of how complex the release of insulin (and glucagon) is in a non diabetic, and trying to mimic that with a fancy pen is quite hard. You dont have to go keto, but a low carb diet has shown to do wonders for type 1 diabetics. Much more stable blood sugar generally and better hba1c results. Switching from a glucose based metabolism to a ketone fat based metabolism allows you to avoid lows, which are the more immediate danger, especially if your active. Why swim against the current. That's beside the point though, no matter your diet, all these things are monitorable. My insulin use is on the "low"side because I'm most likely still making a bit of insulin. What this really means is that my exogenous insulin use is adequate, and that's all it really can be. Enough or not enough. Your mate and myself can find that out through a c peptide tests, That along with current daily use of insulin, and occasional blood ketone readings, should paint a picture as to why that happened, and if it was to do with a lack of control, or something else. If your friends insulin was so low that it was some of the body's basic functions like neurotransmitters i'd think that you'd be able to pick that up through some form of reading with your glucose or ketone level. It just sounds like ketoacidosis. Perhaps with an imbalance of electrolytes. Which if so, is possibly the worst shit Eva. I feel bad for your mate. Who knows really, if he couldn't see it coming, it could have been anything.
