After finishing up my first PH cycle of Hard Rock's Halo-Plex here's my review. Because this was my first experience with PH's I'm going to try and keep my review in perspective due to the fact that the results for a more experienced individual probably wouldn't match up with my experience.

Halo-Plex is Hard Rock's clone of Halodrol; it's dosed at 25mg/pill. I can't remember the exact price but I ordered off Lockout.com for about $25-28 a bottle so total cost for the PH part of my cycle was $75-$85; I have seen similar products like CEL's discontinued H-Drol at $60-$65 a bottle. So getting my entire cycle for close to the price of 1 bottle really improves my value rating.
Value: (9/10)

Before Cycle Stats:
Height/BW: 5'11"/195lbs
BF%: 14%
Bench: 275lbs/3reps
Squat: 365lbs/6reps
Dead: 315lbs/2reps
Hang Clean: 275lbs/4reps
(Because I focused mainly on volume increases during training for this cycle I figured showing the increases in reps with weight that I struggled with would better depict the gains I was targeting as opposed to 1RM #'s)

Cycle:
50/75/75/100/100/100. I was going to stick at 75mg for a longer period of time but after talking to more experienced members on this site I chose to up it to 100mg for the last 3 weeks.

Support Supps: (Pre-load for 2 weeks and run all the way through PCT)
Opti-Men
CEL Cycle-Support
Fish Oils
Glucosamine (joint support)
Taurine: 5g daily, upped to 10g wk 5&6

Week 1:
I didn't notice anything this week in regards to results or side effects. I maybe had a little bit more focus and intensity during my training but I'm pretty sure it was just a placebo effect of knowing what I'm on.
Dosed 50mg (25mg AM/25mg 12 hr later).
0lbs Gained

Week 2:
The effects of the Halo-Plex kicked in towards the end of this week. I remember a shoulder workout and I was doing dumbbell shoulder press and I grabbed the 65's and that's normally a good weight for 8 reps and I easily completed 12reps, that was the day that it kind of hit me that this stuff was really starting to work. In terms of recovery I felt like my recovery time was beginning to decrease quite drastically while the intensity of my workouts was at an all-time high. Obvious side-effects were still not apparent this week.
Dosed 75mg (50mg am/ 25mg 12hr later).
2lbs Total Weight Gain

Week 3:
This was when I really began to feel the effects of the Halo-Plex. Every workout was better than the one before it and I could push myself harder than I ever had before. Because of this and the from the advice of senior members I chose to stick to volume increases to help prevent injuries and would only bump the weight up after I could perform 10-12 reps of a weight. This week was also when I began to experience the obvious sides of PH usage; the worst were the back pumps that seemed to come out of nowhere, the Taurine did help though I did notice minor lethargy but nothing that affected my daily activities significantly.
Dosed 75mg (50mg am/ 25mg 12hr later).
5lbs Total Weight Gain


Week 4:
The feeling of being "on" continued to become more and more apparent, my workouts continued to be some of the best I had experienced. This week was the first I began to notice a major increase in vascularity and separation in muscle groups; I was only doing minimal cardio and my diet was more in line with a lean bulk but I continued to experience a drier and harder physique. One major issue I had at this point in my cycle was lethargy or motivation because I had to do some major pumping up to go to the gym. I had no noticeable BP issues so far in the cycle so I decided to try 1 scoop of Jack3d PWO. I experienced no issues with this addition and for the remainder of the cycle I used Jacked 2-3 days a week. Back pumps were still an issue this week but maintained by the Taurine.
Dosed 100mg (50am/ 25mg PWO/ 25mg 12hr later).
9lbs Total Weight Gain

Week 5 &6:
I lumped these two weeks together because they were almost identical. The benefits of the Halo-Plex were obviously still in effect and I continued to have great results in the gym. Side effects at this point began to become bothersome but not unbearable; it was almost a guarantee that I would get really painful back pumps after my dead lift sets. I increased my daily Taurine intake to 10g and this seemed to help slightly. On my last day I finished with a Back workout that I will remember for a long time where I was just crushing weight I used to struggle with. One major issue I experienced during these weeks was a much lower sex drive, It was still there but not at the fore-front of my mind like it normally is.
14lbs Total Weight Gain

Immediately After Cycle Stats:
Height/BW: 5'11"/209lbs
BF%: 12%
Bench: 275lbs/8reps
Squat: 365lbs/12reps
Dead: 315lbs/7reps
Hang Clean: 275lbs/8reps


PCT:
Torem: 60/30/30/30
Dpol: 3 caps daily W1-4
AI PCT Support W1-4
Animal Stak W3-5
Lean Extreme W3-5
All additional support supps run through cycle
I'm a week and ½ into PCT and have only lost 2lbs and have maintained all strength increases. I feel like the torem/dpol combo has really kick started my natty test production again as the minor shrinkage I did experience is gone and my sex drive is already back on the incline.

Overall:
This was a great first PH run, the quality of the clone that Hard Rock made is top notch and I had great results. 14lbs of muscle in 6 weeks was great but where this product really shined for me was in the strength gains, adding 4-5 reps with weight that I was struggling to get 3-4 times before the cycle. Maybe it was just because it was my first run of this type of product but I highly recommend this clone to anyone considering a lower cost option for a Halodrol run.
 Pros:
 Cons:
  • Strength Gains

I just want to start off by saying that I was very impressed with my first "true" Ph run of Halo-Plex. After about a year of daily research on this site I decided that Halo-Plex, Hard Rock's clone of Halodrol, was for me. I read several reviews on how others ran halodrol and tried to build a stack that would suit me. My goal this run was to put on about 8lbs of lean mass. And I have to say that I was on point with my goal.

Before Cycle Stats: 5'10/160lbs. I started this cycle at the end of a cut that I began over last summer. I wanted to get my body fat down as much as I could so I could jump into sort of a lean bulk.

Pre-cycle and Support Supps:
Milk Thistle-preloaded 2 weeks prior and throughout cycle
Cycle assist-preload 2 weeks prior and throughout cycle
Organ shield-preload 2 weeks prior and throughout cycle
Taurine-5 grams daily throughout cycle
Fish Oil-throughout cycle

Cycle:
50/75/75/100/100/125. I started out the first three days at 50mg. Day four and on to week four I ran it at 75mg. Weeks four and five I dosed at 100mg. On day three of week six I upped the dose to 125mg.
Week 1: I didn't expect much this week. However, knowing that I was on "something" made me really push hard this week. I wanted the cycle to start off great.

Week 2: The first part of the week was similar to week 1. By the middle of the week I started to feel Halo-Plex and see a difference. My lifts were gradually going up and I was pumping out more reps. I started to notice a difference in my shoulders. They seemed more vascular and were taking on a great shape. My traps as well seemed bigger than normal. The pumps were also more noticeable. I wasn't taking any pre-workout during the cycle. I maintained at 75mg for this week.

Week 3: This was a great week for me. My shoulders and traps looked huge. I was up about 15lbs on every lift which made want to push myself even harder. I didn't wanna leave the gym. My focus this cycle was to gain some mass in my legs. I killed it on leg days. Shoulder and trap days seemed to be my favorite though. The vascularity in my shoulders was amazing. And my traps continued to look huge.

Week 4: I upped the dose to 100mg here and between week 3 and 4, this was the "sweet spot". I felt like a beast in the gym. I was throwing 275 pretty easy for about 6 reps. The back pumps were also very noticeable here. I increased my taurine intake a bit and it helped but back days were rough.

Week 5: This week was pretty similar to week 4. The back pumps remained but I was still killing it in the gym. I was curling the 60lb dumbells with good form. I'm not one of those guys that swings his whole body to do a curl. I'd rather curl a 15lb dumbbell with good form then swing around a 45lb one. I was up to 176lb and looking a lot leaner. I also incorporated crossfit during weeks 3-6. I went to crossfit about 3 times a week in the mornings. Hitting the gym about 5 times a week in the evenings.

Week 6: I decided to up the dose to 125mg the last week. Sides were pretty much non-existent other than back pumps. I didn't feel much shutdown until this week. All cycle I had been horny as hell and wanted to foo everything in sight. But, this week I felt libido come down. I also started dpol this week.

PCT: I ran Chlomid at 120 for a few days and the proceeded with 90/60/30/30. I also added Animal Stak with Dpol during PCT. I looooved Dpol and Stak together. On my off days I would run regular DAA. I also add Green Mag and Craze during PCT. Craze is amazing but that's a review on all it's own.

Overall: I had a great run with Halo-Plex. The sides were minimal and very controllable. I ended PCT at 171lbs lean. Which is a bit more than my goal and I'm very pleased about that. My avatar is me at week 5 I believe. The price is great, the results are awesome if you put in the hard work. I ate clean for the most part and had cheat days on Sundays. I ate around 3500-4000 calories to compensate for doing crossfit. Most would say this is a great beginner PH but I would call it a great all around PH if you're willing to put in the work and make a specific goal. My goal was to lean bulk adding about 8lbs and I slightly exceeded that. Thanks to the site for providing all the reviews and logs and tools I needed. Everything was just a search bar away.

I completed a 6 week cycle of Halo-Plex and have to say, for a clone this PH is wonderful and works as it should.

History:
I've been training for several years, but only the last 3 years did I start taking it serious. I've tried other PH's and injectables in the past.

Dosage:
Followed the recommendations at first, 1 cap twice a day. I took each tablet same time each day, one in the morning 60mins pre workout (empty stomach with water) and one 2hour / 3 hours before bed. Approx 12 hours apart.

As the weeks went by (approx week 3) I did increase my dosage to 3 a day, 2 pre workout and 1 at night, some days I took 2 before bed and 1 pre workout (by accident)

Results:
Train hard! Ate clean and got no less then 8 hours sleep at night. As for figures, I can't say how much my squats/ lunges etc. increased by but it all significantly went up after about 3 weeks, which was roughly when I increased the dosage to 3 caps (75mg).

I leaned out and put on noticeable size, completed 15min cardio after each gym day (normally 4 days of weights and 1 cardio only day) became VERY vascular and looked to be on the 'pump' all day. I ended up dropping approx 3% BF and put on approx 2.5kg (5lb) of mass.

During the cycle, I used other supplements, such as;

- Arimindex
- Liv52
- Multi-vitamin
- Protein blend
- Oxy elite pro (first 12days only)
- Craze
- Activate Extreme (natty test booster by DS)
- Bunch of other PCT related items (clomid, novadex etc)

Side effects:
Lost a bit of sex drive and got told by the GF im getting to 'big' haha

Overall:
Given I used Oxy elite and Activate Extreme during the cycle, I can't say that 100% of the results gained were solely cause of Halo-Plex however I did get good strength gains and put on lean mass, so am I happy with this product? YES! Will I recommend this product? YES!
 Pros:
 Cons:
  • Strength Gains
  • Lean Mass Gains
  • Increased Vascularity
  • Dry Gains
  • Slightly Lower Sex-drive
