Let me first say that I am not an AMS/FRL rep and I am in no way affiliated with either company.
I bridged from a quick 3 week Mechabol cycle (75 mg) and have now been on Alpha Mass solo at 15-18 caps a day + two 1ad RDs for 15 days. I really wanted to experiment with a high dose 1-Dhea to see if I could achieve results similar to the original 1-ad, especially since a significant amount of the logs I have seen have not had stellar results.
Here are the results thus far:
Strength is incredible. I took the original 1-ad when I was a young buck, and the results are strikingly similar (though still not quite as drastic). Here's an example: on Mecha my one arm DB rows went from 100 x 8 ----> 110 x 8. After two weeks of Alpha Mass solo I went from 110 x 8 -----> 120 x 5. Across the board 5-15 lbs on lifts AFTER stopping Mecha with just Alpha.
The kicker is that this is on a caloric deficit. I started off recomping on Mecha and then transitioned into a cut once on Alpha Mass. As expected, only losing weight but surprisingly still climbing in the strength department.
The negatives: Lethargy is insane, like a sleeping bear. I literally have to drag myself into the gym somedays. I can see why people bail out on this stuff because the gains to tiredness ratio are disproportionate until week two (from my experience). I have some leftover AndroHard that I have been taking the last couple days, and it helps but will run out soon.
The other thing is the price. It is expensive to run this compound at a high dose, period. I traded for a few bottles and bought a few myself so the price wasn't too bad.
At the doses I'm running Alpha mass + 1-andro RD right now, the results are amazing. It is no doubt a contender with the methylated PHs like Hdrol in terms of strength. The best part is that the side effects are not there like they are for me with Hdrol, except for the lethargy. My BP has went down from when I was on Mecha even on this dose which is ideal for me because I am prone to high BP.
I'll probably give a final update when I'm done with this cycle, but if any one has any questions let me know.
