    hydroxy-test or not?


    I'm trying to decide between the Legal Gear transdermal 1-test and Legal Gear transdermal 1-test hydroxy.

    My question is how much of a difference does it make when hydroxy-test is used during a cycle?

    Also the one w/o the hydroxy has more 1-test in it. Any reason for this?

    The reason there is more 1T in the version without OHT is because there's simply more room in the transdermal carrier. A typical carrier like the 4.0 oz T-Gel can hold right around 10 grams of PH powder.

    OHT-wise, its just a preference. I personally like OHT as it's great for increasing libido and it seems to lean me out a little on cycle. A standard 1t/4AD cycle is just fine though for gains, there won't be much difference in mass gained.

    Research how to homebrew a transdermal, its very simple and waaay cheaper than LG's stuff.

    Good response, thank you. I had a feeling you were gonna say something about homebrewing which I'm glad about. It it really as easy as just dropping the powder into the t-gel?

    I was informed to give my tgel a hot bath then add in the hormones...helps them dissolve better, and you know what? They where right. Bring a pot of water almost to boiling, then let your bottle of gel sit in it for about 5 min, then add in your powder.

    I did the math it's actually a rip if ya homebrew.

    LG 6gm 1-test and 6gm 4ad $40

    Homebrew: tgel $20 + 6gm 1-test ($24 ) + 6gm 4ad ($6) = $50

    Let me know if I missed something.

    I think Bioman means it is cheaper to homebrew your own carrier. There are recipes in the transdermal section if you are interested. I'm not sure how much you would save and it seems like a hassle to me. But I guess if you have the time and the patience it could save you a few bucks.

    I'm with you on that. My parents would definitely flip if they saw me cookin up some "juice". 1-test hydroxy it is. Still gonna get some t-4 from custom as well so don't sweat it.

    LG has drastically lowered their prices in the last year or so I see. Thats not a bad price at all for a good product. I'm assuming that's a 4 oz bottle?

    Making your own carrier is does cost some bucks at first but you get many cycles worth of carrier out of it.

    The other benefit to mixing your own hormones into TGel is that you get to customize the ratio of hormones yourself. Once you know how you react to certain substances this can be a definite plus..ie go heavier on the oht or the 1t to suit cycle goals.

    I also feel that t-gel is a superior carrier than the LG.

    It seems like the using the hydroxy-test on cycle produces dryer lean gains. Agree, disagree?

    I use OHT in most or my transermals, it does keep gains a little bit drier. But you can still bloat, run an anti-e if you want totally dry gains.
