This is my first pro-hormone and my decision to take it wasn't taken lightly and after many hours of research I decided to go forward. Epi is a methylated compound and it is essential to have Cycle Support
and a SERM (it's debatable but I highly recommend). Chemical name-2a, 3a-epithio17a methyl-17b-hydroxy-5a-androstane and it is known as a designer steroid (not to be confused with anabolic steroid). This specific version was recommended from a friend looking for an alternative to Epistane
by IBE and said it was equal if not better. My intentions to take this stemmed from a major hump (plateau) that had lasted 6-8 months.
preload 1-2 weeks with Milk Thistle
AI's Cycle Support
continued with Cycle Support
And of course tons of protein throughout and Xtend
*=first day started with 10mg
#=29th day took 50mg
I took with meals broken up throughout the day and 10mg 30 min. preworkout
Guess I was one of the lucky ones because I didn't receive any bad side effects other than 1 day of a lethargic feeling.
Honestly I didn't think that recovery
was anything special until I got off it. Then it became clear that it helped immensely. I would have probably been dying the next day especially while hitting up the heavier weight.
It gave a great pump throughout the whole cycle. I took occasionally with Nitrox II
and the pumps were insane and memorable.
It was around $30 online, but you also have to factor the SERM and the supporting cast of supplements which ran a little steep. As far as just this product it was cheap.
This product did exactly what I had hoped for which was to get past a plateau. Its hard to gauge effectivness in terms of other prohormones
since this was my first, but I can't give it any less than a 10. My strength went through the roof and my body fat% went down as well. Well, here's the before and after:
I really enjoyed this cycle and especially with not getting any side effects! The recovery
and pump was a nice added bonus that I wasn't expecting. I'm half way through PCT
and have kept all my gains so far. I have kept half the weight. I would recommend to a knowledgeable, smart, cautious first time user of pro-hormones. Also, someone looking to cut and keep all their strength would gain from this product and also people looking for strength and not just the pounds. To note I was 24 years old and througout PCT
just turned 25 and I do not recommend for users under the age of 21.
