I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but say I wanted to run activate by itself while training natty for 2-3 months...since I will not be running RXT (acne gets too bad) will I receive any HPTA shutdown when coming off? I've heard that it can actually cause shutdown, is this true?
Also, you guys that were experiencing acne while using activate solo...how bad did it get, and how was it compared to the acne from RXT for those of you who've tried both? thx for any help.

Nah, course not. It won't effect your HPTA. Who told you it would?Originally Posted by lifted
I'm quite prone to bad skin (this tends to be the core of Steve's insult material) but Act wasn't too bad on me at all. A little more on my face and back.Also, you guys that were experiencing acne while using activate solo...how bad did it get, and how was it compared to the acne from RXT for those of you who've tried both? thx for any help.

I thought I remembered Dr. D or somebody from DS say that if anything, free test would rise while total T may decrease a bit or something like that due to the aromatization of the conversion??!! Pff...I can't remember, anyways that's great to hear...I wanna get a little boost for the rest of this summer until the fall before I full out bulk again....a little edge would be nice.Originally Posted by Robboe

If we're talking theory, then yes, there may be an increase in DHT. The case here is similar for the case with testosterone - there may be an overall drop in testosterone, but the %age free will definately increase.Originally Posted by rrgg

Blocking SHBG may reduce overall test output, but you are freeing up more active test.Originally Posted by lifted
For example -
Total Test: 100
Free Test: 40
Total Test: 80
Free Test: 60
Arbituary numbers but you get the gist.

Robboe how'd this affect your strength? Also, have other testers reported increases or no? I'm primarily interested in increasing poundages on lifts and am trying to decide if this is worthwhile or not

Awesomely, if that's even a word.
I've said this elsewhere, but i gained reps on every set whenever i trained. It may have only been one rep, but i also said every set - not exercise.
Some sets i'd be able to bump the weight.
This effect never appeared to slow down or reduce as time went on either, which is why i wanna use Act for a long 8-week cycle.

Bumping for an answer. Maybe if this isn't Robboe's area of expertise, Dr. D or Sledge could comment further.Originally Posted by rrgg

Is there anything wrong with dosing only 3 times a day, like 7-10 caps 3 times a day?
As long as your getting more, shouldn't that help extend the period its active in the blood until your next dose?

Thanks for putting up the html version of your website. But why is the Activate writeup there password-protected? (It's available via the flash site.)

The page is "http://www.designersupps.com/article_info.php?articles_id=2 0"Originally Posted by Robboe
Try to follow the link "For the rest of this full length article, please read this: ActivaTe.pdf (290.11 Kb)". The link it tries to follow is "http://www.designersupps.com/download//ActivaTe.pdf" The double / after download doesn't seem to matter, I get the same message changing it to a single /. The flash page links to "http://www.designersupps.com/product_writeups/activate.pdf" which works fine.

I cant remember if this has been covered or not. do you think the NHA stack would be strong enough to retain muscle while cutting? if so would I need to wait til week 2 or 3 to start cutting to allow my test to get high enough?

That's impressive to say the least, as that much t3 gets me catabolic in a hurry!Originally Posted by Robboe

Yes, but i am quite endomorphic, and i could probably take 25-50mcg during the latter stages of dieting to "replace" any drop in thyroid without dropping too much muscle, sans androgen.Originally Posted by builtolast
Jumping into 75mcg near the start of a diet is pretty crazy talk without androgen, or NHAS for me. I wouldn't recommend anyone else do this unless they have prior experience with NHAS or T3 on separate occasions.
