    yeah bro, i love the igf, i get sooo lean and vascular, last time i did it i injected my bis, chest and calves, they all grew. My calves grew an entire inch, my arms grew a 1/2 inch and my chest grew a lil over a 1/2 inch. This and toremifine are musts for my post cycle therapy. It also helps greatly with healing. I had hurt my left pec right before i started the igf and it healed very quickly.

    I also have pretty tight skin, i dont think that my skin gets tighter on igf, i think that my bf% lowers and my muscles get more of a pump

    I wasn't all too impressed with my first go-round with it. But I am planning on giving it another go in the near future, maybe during this PCT...

    I voted "No" but I see it more of a middle ground.

    How do you prep inject for IGF ...i put 50 mcg IGF-LR3 (diluted in AA) then i fill the rest of syringe with BA NaCl. Am i losing any IGF into the BA NaCl vial when i add the solution to my syringe?

    im not exactly sure what you are asking here (either that or im to lazy to reread it) so ill just tell you this, you will want to dilute all of your igf with your AA. if you have 1000 mcgs about 2 ml of AA is what i do. put them together in a vial.. if your igf vial is big enough for 2ml of AA then use that (squirt the AA down the side of the bottle, not directly into it.) again idk if you already did this or not.. anywho... when your ready to inject take the syringe you just sucked up wit your reconstitued igf and put it in the BA water, dont fill the whole rest of the syring up with BA thats just madness.. i only go about 10 or 15 notches (lines, IU's, whatever) oo and no dont worry, no igf will ge tlost in your BA Water vile.. i think thats what you asked

    I fill the igf up to the 4th line on the slin pins and then fill up the bacteriostatic water to the 30th line

    pretty much on days you workout, directly after you workout, in the muscles you just worked out, within 20 minutes after your workout, that should workout.

    I do 40mcg bilaterally.

    After I draw the IGF, i suck back a little air so there's no IGF in the syringe. That way the chances of it leaking into your BW are 0. Either way it should be fine if you draw it out upside down like normal...

    Gotcha......DO you inject first thing in the morning on days you dont trian? I was also looking at a 6/1 schedule.

    I dont smoke, but if you got the results from doing things in that order......Sh*t pass it my way.

    I have used it once during PCT. Did not really notice much as i already have pretty low bf. Helps with appetite which i did notice during my run with it. Could tell it was legit cus i used slin with it one time and as normal procedure i lowered the amount of slin i would normally used and i still went hypo. Anyways i have not given up. In the future i plan on running it during a cycle in hopes for a synergistic effect. To all of those who did get good results were you using media grade or receptor grade????

    I am around 6-9%bf when im bulking man. The last time i used igf, i was bulking, but it was really clean, and i went down to 3.1%. I wasnt getting ready for anything and i wasnt trying to cut. And yes it helps protein synthesis so it helps you keep gains during postcycle.

    I dont inject on days that i dont train. My schedule right now is
    Day1:chest, shoulder, tris
    Day2:biceps, back, abs
    Day3:calves, quads, hams
    Then u just start it over, take a rest day whenever u feel the need. Just try and not take too many, lol. I usually do like 1 a week or so, lately i havent felt like taking any though. I am doing it this way so that I can inject chest, biceps and calves. So you might want to try something different if you want to inject other areas. Also weed is sort of a natural grubon, lol, and when u combine it with grubon you eat like a lion. Just try and keep it clean.

    I really think it is worth it for one main reason. When I am on it I honestly don't notice much and I really dont buy into the localized growth aspect either BUT my max weight was always 215 and it was VERY hard for me to hold 215 for mor ehtan a few days and would always settle down to 210-212. Since running IGF a couple time my max wieght I can hold is 224 so I really believe it does add new cells and over time you will see the benefits down the road.

    How much AA did you use to make it sting like a mofo?

    BA will also degrade the peptide much faster than other carriers.

    My only concern from using IGF is the SIDES. That stuff would randomly make me so hypoglycemic that I'd pass out.

    Oh, these weren't right away. Shoot, I'd get a hypo-crash 10 hours after injecting sometimes.

    I say worth it. It's always under a bill for a mg.
    Anywho I need some M1T this december..... Somebody needs to start carrying this sh1t. Ahhh. M1T + IGF1. I'll probably be so miserable on cycle that I'll wanna die. M1T...IGF1... and some Epistane with IGF1 and test prop.

    i love it for injuries.

    i used it on and off for over a year. like it but wasn't really worth the $ for th results. However i usually have some sitting around so that i can jump right on it if i have an muscle tendon issues.

    If i didn't take AP i probably would still be cycling it.

    does this stuff have the same effects as what the life sciences researchers use? i am talking about what the mr's and ag's type outfits sells over the internet (or the joe blow hush mail sellers that claim 97% pure product)?if not then how can these so call peptides work as good as users report? and can you always trust the quality of some chinese powders now a days? i have read from a few bb sites,word searched, i even brought some gh frag and used it for about 8 wks myself with no noticable results. how can anybody prove that this stuff works?
