Beginners to prohormones
I field more questions from beginners than any other customers and unfortunately they are often the ones who have been most misled by the myths and inaccurate information which is passed off to them as fact by the uneducated or the unethical. Quite simply, any beginner to prohormones, or someone who may have only used prohormones infrequently and with poor results, should not even consider some of the prohormones that are available on the market today. For this individual the most important thing is to establish good training and dietary habits and ensure they have been training for a minimum of two years and are at least 21 years of age. Personally, I would recommend not using prohormones until users have at least five years training experience and have experimented with the other bodybuilding supplements available on the marketplace today. Once ready then I would look at prohormones exhibiting high anabolic (muscle building) action with low androgenic and estrogenic action (low side effects). These compounds tend to be the easiest to recover from and the least stressful on the body enabling comfortable progress and retention of gains. The options in this category are:
Choose ONE of the above and run at the dose recommended by the manufacturer for no more than four weeks. While taking these compounds I recommend some form of cycle support to ensure cardiovascular and liver health is optimised - AI Sports' Cycle Support is ideal. Use this at one scoop a day. For post cycle I recommend the stack below:
Take the Reversitol v2 and Lean Xtreme for four weeks and the Erase Pro for eight weeks.
For athletes in this range we can consider one of two options. The first is to stack any of the compounds previously listed with Fusion Supplements Androtest in one cycle. For instance, you could run Cynostane with Androtest and gain a very beneficial effect with low side effects. Anyone considering stacking should take note that you do not need to run the products at the full dose as you would if taken alone. Also we only advise stacking Androtest and one other. You would not stack Cynostane with Protodrol, for instance, as they are more likely to lead to liver toxicity. Instead if you take both at 2/3 or 3/4 of the full dose you will still get an increased effect without excessive side effects. An alternative is a product which is not so mild but will produce good gains, products which are tried and tested for many years. Options include:
Advanced users would be those who have run many cycles and find they need more now to continue to gain muscle mass and are willing to tolerate the increased risk of side effects that comes with stronger products and higher doses. One option would be to combine any of the products in the section above (Havoc, Trenadrol, Methdrol) with Androtest. This will produce extra gains without too much in the way of more side effects. You would not stack Havoc, Epistane or Methdrol with each other though. Another option is to select a product that is stronger still. Options include:
Any of these three can be run alone for profound gains in size and strength.
For those who have seen and taken everything, for whom training and muscle gains are a religion, the options are reduced in terms of what can be done to further increase muscle mass. Now, we have to look at stacking prohormones to achieve maximal results while avoiding causing undue stress on the liver. We minimise liver stress by using cycle support and avoiding stacking two methylated prohormones. Options include:
Ultimate Hulk Stacks
At this point there is not much left to do as you must be a beast to need the stack below, but for those who are looking for the final level in prohormone stacks here it is:
Anyone running a stack like the one above should expect explosive muscle gains. Even at a reduced dosage of each compound (we recommend no more than 50% of the normal dose) gains should come at a much accelerated rate.
A note on PCT
We touched earlier on essential supplements for PCT and cycle support but for the advanced, mutant, and hulk stacks we suggest adding one or more of the following products to PCT:
Hopefully after this article it is much easier for people to now know what is appropriate for them to take. If you found this helpful, let us know on the forum and like and share on Facebook or Twitter!
