  3. so buy them up and make it easy on me guys.

    I just ordered 2 more bottles.

  4. 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?

    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.

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.

    My skin gets so bad when running certain hormones and hormone related compunds... This past Post cycle is actually making me wanna quit AAS altogether...I get that cystic acne like crazy....bleh..

    Even though the Activate compound is blocking DHT, is it possible that the increase in free test can also indirectly increase DHT? In other words, even while blocking DHT, is there an overall net reduction in DHT or net gain? (in theory)
    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.

    Blocking SHBG may reduce overall test output, but you are freeing up more active test.

    For example -

    Without Activate:

    Total Test: 100
    Free Test: 40

    With Activate:

    Total Test: 80
    Free Test: 60

    Arbituary numbers but you get the gist.

  10. Does it matter if taken with or without food?

  11. No, but generally i'd recommend taking right before you eat food to avoid burnt-tasting burps.

  12. Tom, and Silent thanks for the info. I wont be bulking again till
    december, so I have plenty of time to figure this out. But with all
    the **** i'm using for my cycle, I think I'll save the Activate till my
    pct.

  13. Dr D said it would be a good idea to taper down the activate when coming off.

    And you can do a much smoother taper with the beta

  15. 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

  16. 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.

    (P.S. This is related to another thread, but no one responded to clarify this: ActivaTe & Propecia, DHT, SBHG confusion )
    Bumping for an answer. Maybe if this isn't Robboe's area of expertise, Dr. D or Sledge could comment further.

  18. when will the next shipment be out because mine did not ship yet i ordered it the june 22.

  19. 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?

    All outstanding orders were cleared by yesterday so it will have shipped, only Melissa won't have gotten round to updating your account info yet.

    For practicality, 10 caps x2/day is feasible. But yes, 7-10 x3.day is also good.

  22. 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.)

  23. That just went live today. I'm weeding out all the bugs to be fixed. Thanks for the heads-up.

    I don't get this issue. What page are you trying to access it from?

    The page is "http://www.designersupps.com/article_info.php?articles_id=2 0"
    Try to follow the link "For the rest of this full length article, please read this: ActivaTe[1].pdf (290.11 Kb)". The link it tries to follow is "http://www.designersupps.com/download//ActivaTe[1].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.

  26. Ah yeah, i already knew about that. Weird, huh?

    But it's part of the old site, not the new one, so i'm less concerned. Eventually, that facia will be gone completely.

  27. 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?

    Absolutely.

    I'm not recommending this to anyone, but personally, i would risk going upwards of 75mcg T3 while implementing the NHAS.

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

    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.

    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.
