First off, my stats:
Thats right, I'm choosing PP's ANDROLEAN as my first ever pro-compound. A little about me first before I explain why I chose this product over the abundance of aas/ps products available today. I've been training for over 10 years but with very little success for the first 6. Starting out I was just like everyone else; skinny, and VERY UNEDUCATED! So my lack of results early on are not surprising, but after spending years reading Muscle & Fiction trying every "pack on 20lbs of muscle" workout they herald across their covers to no avail, I began reading books. Mainly on bodybuilding. The information I began to study was--uh--a lot different than the magazines. The main thing that changed? I learned how to eat! Suddenly I transformed my 190lbs struggling physique into, at my highest, a 230lbs single digit BF machine! Okay, maybe not a machine, but I was happy. This happened over the course of approximately 2 years with all the staple supps, creatine, beta-alanine, omegas, etc...
My training and diet are tailored specifically to my body, as I've experimented with this quite a bit in the past. I know what works for me, and I've learned how to listen to my body. Alright, enough rambling, now on to my decision. Originally I would lurk the pages of AM reading post after post in an effort to learn more about advanced supplements and finally had to sign up. After signing up I spent a long time reading and *ehem* using the search bar to grow my understanding of these compounds. I've learned a lot, and thanks to all of you! I'm finally at the age I feel that my body will respond well to something, but I'm more from the conservative field. High-risk high-reward compounds didn't suit me. Most people tend to look at these products as "miracle workers", that all they need to do is take the hardest hitting new compound and poof, you'll look like Jay Cutler. The truth is these are "supplements" to "supplement" our training and nutrition. Without the groundwork laid, the structure just won't stand, and if you haven't made gains without aas/ps, you won't do well with them. I'll now step off my soapbox.
I chose ANDROLEAN for the following reasons: safe compound, very mild so I can see how my body will react with minimal sides, and great reps! I've witnessed the PP reps share their knowledge with many AM members and never push someone into one of their products. This led me to believe the products must speak for themselves.
As for my diet and training, my struggle in the past has always been horrible motivation and energy while cutting, this is where I'm hoping AL will deliver! I'm in the process of moving so no gym membership for the next month but you can run and do push/pull ups anywhere (another reason why AL is a good choice right now). I'll be doing HIIT training for 1hr every morning, then circuit training 3-4 days a week in the evening (because no gym membership while I move). Kcals will be 2500 with 60/30/10 protein carbs and fat. I will cycle down carbs (thus reducing calories) every 2 and 3 days. Example: day 1 normal, days 2 and 3 cycled down, day 4 normal, days 5,6, and 7 cycled down. This allows me to keep a weekly routine.
Please jump aboard and feel free to chime in with advice! Also, PP reps and anyone that has experience with this product, is there anything else I should expect for sides? PCT will be PP Test rec stack along with daa.
