Just wanted to update my halovar expierience. ran 50 mg for 1st 17 days then upped it to 75. Im thinking 5 weeks 5 days which will finnish 2 bottles. Im up 9 lbs so far(175 to 184) all muscle. Strength gains are simply unbelievable.
Squat went from 225 x 10 to 295 x 9
and all other lifts up as well. No sides maybe a bit of aggression.
Some advice to others DRINK WATER every gram of carb pulls over 4 grams of water into the cell with it. Your water consumption needs to increase. I overlooked this at first and had a down day where i lost weight and strength. I read another posters expierience claiming he needed 1.5 gallons a day.I ve made the adjustments and have really exploded the last few days. Im feeling pumped all day even on off days.DRINK AS MUCH WATER AS U CAN. It may have even increased my appetite, not sure if its attributed but appetite has been up.
Some backround info Im 40 yo been lifting since im 17 on-off,mostly on.
This is my first ph. Ive tried every supp, diet, and workout that has looked worth trying. Ive had results ranging from great to horrible in all of the 3 categories. So for me 9 lbs muscle in 3 weeks is truly appreciated. Im including this info for the young beginners on this board who want to jump in and stack everything right away.
Make sure u learn what diet/supps/workout works for u first. You cant learn this while you are ON because anything will work. Also young beginners can grow naturally, when you have had good results and understand diet and workout physiology then add ph's.
some questions for advanced users.
My doctor has put me on testosterone replacement therapy about 5 years now. My free test was low (8) and with a little andro gel its about (35) Its an anti-aging /quality of life thing not a bodybuilding thing. and it has improved my energy/drive/libido. I feel like im 25 in the aftermentioned categories.
I also take Arimidx ( ai inhibitor ) to lower my estrogens.
So my question is how will this affect my pct ?
Should I make adjustments while im on ?
Im guessing tapering off /down the Arimidex and going to nolvadex for pct.
Im guessing if I took a highly androgenic compond in the future I would consider stopping androgel while on and restarting in pct ?
Well for any 40+ yearolds I encourage hormone replacement theraphy for drive/energy / libido quality of life. It's becomming more popular and seemingly almost all men by age 40 can bennifit.
Thanks in advance to any responses and ill post my final results in 2-3 weeks.
