Epistane...Yet another question thread
I'm new to the forum and find it very informative. This may be leading to my confustion. I'm suffering from info overload after two days of reading review after review and opinion after opinion.
I am starting my research on a possible epistane pulse cycle. I have read the Results from Pulsing thread as well as the No excuses thread regarding SERMs.
I have found a stack by IBE..I'm sure you know the one. comes with the ep, cycle support, and post cycle support.
My question is...if I end up deciding to try my first ph cycle...would this stack cover all my bases, or would I NEED some others? SERM, I know is recommended, but I'm not sure if my doctor will rx. If one is needed, can I get some OTC suggestions?
Simple would be nice. I'm not looking for huge gains or a miracle...I would like to lean up and maybe in the process gain a few. I'm 35, 5'6, 167-170 lbs, not sure of my bf%.
Thanks for any help and/or guidance!

I finished a 9 week epi pulse about 2.5 weeks ago. No SERM for PCT, just using Stoked. No problems. I have done cycles with "heavier" supps like superdrol. You MUST use a SERM with those. The IBE stack should work fine, too.
I would opt for pulsing epi....Really worked out nicely for me.
I know my doc would rip me a new A**hole if I asked him for a SERM. There are places you can get SERM's without a Rx....but only for your lab rat.

OP - I like an additional milk thistle supp with the cycle support. A multivitamin, fish oil, flaxseed oil, and l-lysine are also staples for me year round.
If this is your first cycle remember, diet and training are 1 and 2 - PHs and AAS just get you to that next level.

Dr D in his post says that by pulsing you are likely to get 60 percent of the gains .Whereas continuous dosage youd get 100 percent so if you can accept that and you feel better for pulsing , then why not.

By pulsing I prolong the cycle giving me more time to go at it. Plus....somehow I feel that if I have a longer cycle I have a greater chance of Keeping my gains. I straight 3-4 weeks cycle of means most of my muscles will only be hit 3-4 times on this cycle using one body part per week split. I personally would love to hit the muscles twice as much. I guess I just love bein ON and want to prolong it and it would be a waste to miss or have weak workout because of hectic day to day life/business.
Note; I have pulsed Epi and 1-T (right or wrong) I see pluses and minuses to both.

Yes I agree. Another reason why preventing shutdown in my book might not be such a bad idea, is because we all have testosterone, so why not use it to our advantage rather than eradicate it.
What i mean by that is to take a substance at a lower dose and over a longer period of time thats going to compliment testosterone so in effect you have a stack .Just my view.

Like I said. I prefer pulsing because I don't feel blowing up in 30 days and keeping it is as realistic as having 60 days of hitting it hard and keeping the gains. I am sure the gains come easier on a 3-4 week pulse but you only have 4 workouts per bodypart on a 4 week cycle. IMHO.

I'm also gonna begin my 1st cycle sometime in the very near future. I bought a bottle of Mdrol (and all the Cycle support) about 6 months ago, and intended to use it, until I found out my BP was a little questionable and how harsh Mdrol potentially could be for a 1st cycle. After months of deliberation, Ive opted to do Epistane, but only after I've somewhat peeked out my strength and size. I'm returning to training after a 4 year layoff.
Anyway, I've been told lately that Epistane or Hdrol would be a better 1st cycle. I intend on running them back to back with the appropiate PCT's and time ofcourse. Its just that "in between" time is what I'm the most curious about. I mean once you've done the 5 weeks of PCT can you follow up with another PH immediately, or do you allow your body time to return to normal Homeostasis. It's my understanding that's what the PCT time allows your body to do. I understand goals predicate which PH you should use, but lets face it, clean size is ultimately what each of us is seeking. I suspect, eating top notch during each run will allow you to the latter.
Its my understanding from a potency standpoint, its as follows: Epistane, P-plex, Hdrol, Mdrol, Trenadrol. This is the order that I was considering until I was told to be careful about running more than 3 cycles a year.

All figures typical and hypothetical:
3 days x 40mg = 120mg / week x 6 weeks (even Dr. D recommends pulse cycles stop @ 6 weeks) = 720mg of EPI.
7 days x 40mg = 280 / week x 4 weeks = 1,120mg of EPI
720mg of EPI over 6 weeks < 1,120mg of EPI over 4 weeks.
The pulse cycle utilizes 64% of the EPI that the ED cycle uses and therefore can be assumed to get 64% of the results as well.

Not everyone sheds on it, but when someone with no prior history....who doesnt even shed on M1T says it made him shed...I would believe him.
