The stepping stone to the world of PH; start here and watch your body change!
What’s up SR family! I would like to start by thanking Muscle 1 and for the Trooper program for the opportunity to give Strength 1 a run. As some of may recall, the good old days of PH, before the 2005 ban went into effect, were like Prohibition in the 20s; many powerful and toxic PH to run. Now, here in 2017, some PH have made a comeback, but not as strong as those in the past; based on what I have read and see, some like Strength 1 have received good feedback. When Strength 1 came up for the troopers, I decided to give it a world.
The main goodie in Strength 1 is 110 mg of 1-Andro, which is DHEA based. Some maybe thinking, that is a low dose; however, in my opinion, it right about where you want to be, especially if you are following the protocol that Muscle 1 suggest. In addition, one does not have to work about any estrogen conversation of any Liver enzyme elevation, since this no methylated. Furthermore, you get some black pepper extract to help the body absorb better.
Taste – these are capsules so no need to eat something that looks like cat litter; pop the capsule and be done with it.
Mix – Again, it is a capsule, so nothing to mix.
Dosing – Now, this is where I played with; I ran this in an old school some people ran strong PH back in the day; pulse cycling. This is when you run a 30-day cycle in the following manner, 2 weeks on, with one week off, and 2 weeks back. I will explain why I decided to run Strength 1 like this in the side effect section.
Strength 1 was a nice run, I am sure I may have benefited more than others who are younger; being 48, any boost, my body will take to it very well. On my 1st week, I started to notice an increase in my strength, my bench was up, and bend over rolls were up as well. In addition, Libido was up as well. After the week pause I took, I notice my strength was still up; however, libido was back to normal.
When I started the last 2 weeks of Strength 1, it picks up where I left off, stronger. However, now I started to notice my shoulders and abs to trim down; I was able to see more muscle definition. Furthermore, libido was back up and ready to play. I always looked pumped, which was a nice affect I was not expecting.
In regards to my PCT while on Strength 1, I used an over the counter AI at 75mg of Arimistane to be on the safe side and ran T-Fuel Prime from Lab Tech Nutraceuticals.
Well, Strength 1 is not cheap, at $90.00 a bottle, is on the high side. However, as the only rep has mentioned in the pass, as soon as more retailors are carrying it, the price will drop. You get 30 days if you use 2 capsules a day; however, if you run it on 3 capsules, you will get about 20 days. The way I ran Strength 1, the value went up, since I was able to get 5 weeks out of it.
Strength 1 gave me a couple of sides, which lead me to run Strength 1 in a pulse cycle. On my after 3 servings, I would get a nasty headache, I believe it was increasing my BP. In addition, by the 7th day, I started to get some lethargic feels. When I took a week off and stated up again, headache side was gone and the lethargic feeling was at a minimal.
Strength 1 at the end of the day performed well for me, this as other have mentioned, is a great place to start for anyone looking to try a PH; just be over the age of 25 to avoid any hormonal issues when cycling off. Strength 1 is a PH, which can be stacked with Muscle 1’s other PH product or even a SARM, if you can still get your hands on some real ones. I would run Strength 1 again; this time I will add a pre-cycle supplements like Hawthorne Berry to help regulate any BP issues. If you have the extra cash now and really want to give Strength 1 a run, go for it, plus we on SR get a nice Discount code to get another product at 50% off. Keep an eye out for any Black Friday deals for this; jump on it if it is on sale! I would like to thank Muscle 1 again for the opportunity.

Strength1 is a great start if your wanting to try a PH….. Now may be the time to try.
Before I start I want to give a huge shout out to Muscle1 Inc for working with me. They gave me the opportunity to run an 8 week cycle of Strength1 at 330mg daily. I was on the lookout for a prohormone that would help me increase my strength while it was non-methylated/produce no estrogen. When Strength1 became available I had to give it a shot especially where I was at in my powerlifting cycle.
– Skyrocket Strength *Met*
– Boost Muscle Density *Met*
– Boost Lean Gains *Met*
The ingredient profile is fully transparent and features one main ingredient 1-Androstene-3b-oI, 17-One. Otherwise known as 1-Andro (1-DHEA), its a two step-conversion process to 1-testosterone by two enzyme pathways. Research has shown 1-Testosterone to be 7 times more anabolic than regular testosterone. It differs from regular testosterone by having a 1,2 double bond instead of a 4,5 double bond. Whats nice about this ingredient is the fact that it doesn’t aromatize into estrogen.
The Peak Intake Complex features (Grapefruit Extract 10:1, 6′,7′-Dihydroxybergamottin, Black Pepper Extract). To dumb this down for myself and others basically this complex features 3 ingredients that enhance absorption of the prohormone into the bloodstream.
Since there is no taste or mixability to judge on I’ll go right into dosing. In regards to dosing I took 3 capsules daily (w/ food) spread evenly apart every 5 or so hours. I also took additional supplements during this time to include: multi-vitamins, cycle support supps, protein, bcaas.
Like I said above I was at the point in my powerlifting cycle where Strength1 could do some good damage. I was running a Cube Predator program aimed at helping me gain strength & size. There wasn’t any kind of diet I was following during that time just following a flexible diet macro count to help put on size. Because of the nature of this program and the limited gym equipment I had to train with I’ll just go into my three main compound lifts. At the beginning of the cycle my PRs were: Squat 350, Bench 290, Deadlift 440. By the end of 8 weeks they looked like: Squat 365, Bench 300, Deadlift 455 for a total of 40lb PR total.
Besides for the strength gains I noticed a leaner more defined look all while packing on 4lbs during that time. I felt as if this helped me shed some fat all while gaining that weight. As most of you of have taken prohormones know you can experience shutdown. However my libido was sky rocketed as I was walking with well you know what in my shorts/pants through out the day & night.
Now I’m currently on my PCT and hope to keep most of these strength gains. If needed I will update this review if there are any dramatic changes following my PCT regimen.
Muscle1 Inc sells 90 capsule bottles of Strength1 for around $90 on their website. To be honest your going to need to buy at least 2 bottles which will cost you around $180. Now add in support supplements, a test base & pct….. your looking at a ton of money being spent. Due to the timing of my review being on Black Friday weekend they are offering a sale for 50% off using code MASSIVE50 through t.he end of Monday If your wanting to try any of Muscle1 Inc supplements now is the time to buy.
Very mild lethargy during the first week while on cycle. Besides for the mild lethargy there are no other side effects to report.
In conclusion all of the claims were met and felt Strength1 to be a very good product. However the price tag lingers, but there is hope with a 50% discount code you can use from now through Monday. As with any prohormone product (even if its safe) make sure to have your support supps ready before you start a cycle. Once again a big thanks to Muscle1 Inc. for giving me this opportunity.

Yes it worked, no it didn’t seem to convert to estrogen, but that doesn’t mean it was free of sides altogether.
Hi Everyone- BCTut here with my review on Muscle1, Inc.’s new prohormone, Strength1. I took this after being off anything that would affect my test levels for about 45 days, so I should have been a pretty blank slate. It was my first try with a prohormone, but I’m experienced with using NTBs and SARMs. This experience left me thinking I’d probably stay in my lane and only use those two categories in the future.
Each pill contains 110mg of 1-andro. The average dosage according to my research is typically 300-800mg/day depending on your body weight and amount of experience with similar products.
No taste and no mixing, these are pills.
I dosed this stuff on the high side. For the first week I took 1 pill twice daily in the morning and at night. After the first week and not seeing effects, I increased my dose to 2 pills twice daily. At 225lbs, I began to see effects at this dose.
The company only recommends dosing 2-3 pills daily, so after the second week I was beyond the recommendation for daily intake.
While I think Strength1 was clearly working, it wasn’t intense by any means and I did have sides that I’ll get into later. I did notice that the first clear indicator of the pills taking affect was an increase in muscle density. Next I noticed an uptick in my weights on major lifts like bench and squat. I never go to my 1rm, but I noticed that I was moving heavier loads in general. I also have bad knees, hips, and shoulders, so a lot of my training is focused on form and reps instead of weight. For instance, 315 is a lot of weight for me to squat typically. While on Strength1 I was able to rep up to 385×5 without trouble. My incline bench usually plateaus at 225; I was able to boost that to 265. Decline/Reverse Grip I was able to push up to 335×3. Sled pushes and pulls had me hauling 10-12 plates on the sled up from 8-9.
Despite moving such heavy weight, I will say that I felt a little less motivated. I usually watch the clock as a queue to hurry up and finish so I have time to get ready for work. On a few occasions I found myself watching and wondering if I should just leave. That was unusual for me.
I was very clear headed while taking this product too. Little spats with the wife where I may have spazzed out at some point, I found myself just not doing. I was a little more helpful around the house than I usually am and just seemed to have more patience. No more “why did you throw away my drink”/ “I thought it was old”/ “there were ice cubes in it!”. My drinks still get thrown away if they leave my sight for even a split second, but no need to cry about it on Strength1!
So you gotta figure my wife would’ve been pretty happy with me for being so helpful and not complaining, right? Wrong. Let’s get into the sides.
Remember that song “Detachable Penis” by King Missile? That’s how I felt. Like my wiener had just up and abandoned me. I had absolutely no sex drive. It was downright bizarre. Despite being so domesticated and strong looking, my wife hated me while I was on this stuff!
I also noticed I was losing some hair. I have a lot of hair, and I think it’s started to grow back now, but I was really shedding while on-cycle. At one time I was doing some work and brushed my hair away from my face only to have 10-12 hairs fall onto my keyboard. Scary!
After completing my cycle I hopped on an NTB as a PCT and my sides quickly started to go away.
What I didn’t notice were things like gyno, water retention, moodiness, etc., so I don’t think any estrogen conversion was happening. I think this stuff was actually just powerful enough to shut me down and stop my LH production.
Right now Strength1 is being sold for $89.99 on their website. I wasn’t able to find it elsewhere. I think the price is a little steep. If you don’t care about the sides I experienced and can afford it, you might think differently for a product that clearly worked from an increased weights perspective.
For me, personally, I think this stuff worked but I wouldn’t do it again because of the sides I experienced. If you aren’t expected to have sex regularly and aren’t a diva about your hair like I am, you will probably like it. I think Muscle1 overall seems like a pretty reputable company based on their feedback to other reviews. So I’ll just leave it at that. Not for me, but might be worth a go for you!

Just 3 pills a day to increase STRENGTH and mass!
I want to give a big thank you shoutout to Muscle 1 for participating in the TROOPS and allowing me to use and review their Strength 1 product! I am a 26 year old firefighter from Ohio. My main fitness goals are to maintain a solid shape for my job and to build muscle mass / strength.
Like their Mass 4 and P Cycle products this is a very small, simple, and straightforward ingredient label. First up on the label is 1-Androstene-3b-ol,17-one at 110mg per serving. This is an prohormone that will convert into testosterone inside the body during a 2 step conversion process. The company claims this ingredient is much more potent than normal testosterone. This ingredient is also non methylated which means it is safer on the liver than previous prohormones. It also means there is less to almost no side effects during your use. Next up on the label is their “EPIC” Elite peak intake complex at 600mg per serving. ”Tis complex contains grapefruit extract 10:1, 6′,7′-Dihydroxybergamottin, and black pepper extract. All of the ingredients in this complex are meant to increase absorption in the body. That is is for the label and ingredients!
This supplement comes in capsule form so there is no taste or mixability to review. The capsules are average size compared to most other supplements. They do have a funky kind of off putting smell to them but it didn’t bother me during my use. The dosing for the prohormone is 110mg per pill and most of the research I did before starting this said that 330mg a day is the sweet spot for a beginner to prohormones. I stuck with 330mg a day throughout my entire usage.
Between using this and their MASS4 supplement I found them to be very effective at what they intended to do. I gained about 9-12 pounds by the time I finished and it all felt and looked like lean muscle. I noticed I did get fairly lean and my diet didn’t change much if at all. In fact I probably ate a bit more. I did notice an increase in strength but it wasn’t as successful as my muscle increase. All of my lifts went up slightly but where I noticed it most was my reps at the current weights I used increased quite a bit. It was definitely nice to see a difference in shape and strength. I started noticing changes and results when I was about 1/3 my way into the supplement. I already consider my Libido to be pretty good so I didn’t notice too much of a difference there.
Here’s my only downfall to this product. It’s not widely available at all and it’s fairly pricy. The companies website is the only place online I was able to find it. The site has it listed at originally $110 a bottle but currently on sale at $90. This company is rather new so I’m hoping once they get their name out there a bit more they will be able to lower their prices.
I experienced no negative side effects during my usage of this product. I know a lot of people experienced lethargy but that did not effect me at all.
Overall I was very pleased by this product. I saw and felt great results. I definitely would recommend this to anyone who has been lifting awhile and is stuck at a plateau or is a hard gainer. Only problem is you’ll have to be willing to shell out a bunch of cash in order to get this. I would definitely love to try this again in the future if I ever found it cheaper. Thanks again to Muscle1 for allowing me to use and review their STRENGTH1 supplement!

First time user looking to make some strength gains.
(About yourself, 1-3 sentences maximum)
What’s up SR this review is on muscle 1 strength 1-Andro product. I’ve tired the PCT which I really like for a first time user now I’m doing for there strength gains. I’ve never tired a 1-Andro when muscle 1 put there put up for review I really wanted to give it a try to see how it would run. Some of the claims for this product is lean muscle gains, sky rocking strength, along with increasing muscle density. Let’s see how it works.
The main ingredient is 1-Androstene at 110mg, then follows the elite peak intake complex at 600mg
Dosing was to take 1 pill 2 to 3 times daily. I did the 1 pill 2 times daily.
For being the first time using and 1-Andro product the results were solid. I notice a nice increase with my weight training in the gym along with a little added extra rage to get it done. There was also more noticeable difference with my body I was putting more mass and size on with my training. The extra strength from the 1-Andro helped me achieve more of my lifting goals in the gym. I was able to rack n pull 495lb for 15 reps. Which before when I was not on this product there was no chance I would ever be able to do that much weight. Also I was also able to bench squat 525lb for 12reps which was a PR before was 495lb for 2 reps. Overall this was a great beginner 1-Andro product and in the future I would be willing to try something stronger. I was very pleased with the results that I did get.
The price with this product it is 89.99 for 60 servings but that would also depend on how the dosing that you use. It would of course cost more if you did it three times a day.
If you have never taking a 1-Andro product before defiantly give muscle 1 a try. The results were really good and made a great impact with my overall lifts and making some PR gains.
