    pre or post W.O. for igf-1


    Title says it all. Before or after? Why? Thanks for input, as I might need to change routine.

    I have done both 40mcg/d for 25 days, and 80mcg/d for 25 days.. both runs were the typical bilateral injections into muscles trained, post workout.

    This current run I'm doing is 40mcg/d for 50days, and I'm pinning prior.. just because I want to try something new, and also because Lr3 has a half life that makes this feasable.... I know of some others that are pinning bilaterally into muscles worked 2 days later.. the reasons why are explained in their posts..but I forget where I saw it.

    regardless, I'm seeing comparable results with this 3rd run, pinning prior training....

    I like to do it after W/O. The main reason is the pump I get keeps me from doing anything really in the gym.
    If your pinning twice a day (morning and night) I do not think it matters wether its before or after (assuming your going into the muscle trained).
    I'm leaning for pinning a day or so After into the muscle worked. It wouldnt matter when it would be done then.

    The only times I pin before workout are days I feel I need a little something to get me going. And again, not into the muscle that Im training.

    post works best for me. Pumps are on, and there's no worry of potential lethargy in the gym.

    I did 10 mcg per side today pre workout and had excellent pumps that lasted along time.
    Lift heavy and eat lots of dead animals! Yes, that's me in my avatar.

    There isn't a good reason to pin IGF-1 sub-q IMO.

    I think after the workout's shower is the best (wait for the body to cool al ittle) because heat can degrade the peptide. injecting pre or post and showering can waste away your IGF.

    don't buy IGF for pumps, use creatine or nitro stuff. IGF is much stronger and better than that. furthermore, IGF-1 pre may abolish some of the GH response during workout.

    when I did IGF-1 I worked out mornings or early afternoons and did IGF post shower. that way it also didn't mess with my night time GH response.

    Did you get localized growth out of that method?
