    6-Week SD cycle, stano or 5-alpha?


    I'm planning a 6 week SD cycle at 10mg. The hope is to keep most gains and not fluctuate as much.

    I had planned to run stano starting the 2nd week of SD for 6 weeks (to overlap past). Recently I've heard alot of talk about FRL 5-Alpha test. Does anyone recommend stano over 5-alpha or vice versa? What would dosing be like with 5-alpha? Are there any thoughts anything other than stano and 5-alpha to fight lethargy, etc (other than test e/c)?

    SuperPro did a SD/4AD/Stano log and it has a lot of good info. Check it out for some good answers regarding Stano and stacking SD...

    I will be running SD with 5-Alpha Test starting New Years Day. It will be ran similar to the stacking chart posted just below.

    For what it is worth, FRL has had really positive feedback on their 5-Alpha Test.

    I was going to run 800mg for the first two weeks, then jump to 1000mg for the remaining of stano. Is three caps of 5-alpha going to be sufficient to stave off lethargy, etc?

    i was actually thinking about this question a few days ago. i decided stano is probly the best bet for now because 5-alpha is relatively new. stano on the other hand is tried and true. but whoever said sd-stano-4ad just opened my mind even more. epiphany status

    Anyone have more expierence with 5-alpha? One of the reasons i'm looking into 5-alpha is because the place I normally purchase all my supps online is out of all stano products...i tried searching nutraplanet but it seems like their search function is dead...

    I'll let you know in a couple weeks. As I said before, feedback on 5-Alpha Test has been really positive, with all the expected reports of staving off lethargy, great energy for the gym, and such. Some have reported even more focus at 4/day, but 3/day has been the most common dosing.

    5-Alpha Test (epiandrosterone) is not a new compound at all. Just FRL marketing it as 5-Alpha Test is. FRL and AMS have used cyclodextrin for better absorption to increase bioavailabilty successfully for sometime now. And it has a healthy dose of B-12 to boot for energy as well.

    Not likely to log it. Maybe write up a review, but most likely just share my experiance as pertinent occasions arrise. I am deployed to Afghanistan right now, so commiting to a log isn't always easy as my computer time varies.

    Hope all is good in the sandbox! Sorry you can't be home for Xmas! I missed my son's 2nd birthday and my wife's birthday but I got to come home a month before Xmas last year. Thanks for your service man.

    I jumped for 5-alpha, i'm thinking about dosing the following:

    SD: 10mg/10mg/10mg/10mg/10mg/10mg
    5-alpha: 0/0/3/3/3/3

    Then PCT....thoughts?

    Even at 10mg you will see shut down. A normal PCT with a SERM is necessary.

    I've yet to run SD (5 bottles sitting in the cabinet) but all the logs point to going up to 20mg if you don't see sides. Unless you just want to use SD as a kicker.
