Is Ergomax LMG all hype?
I keep reading all of these posts saying that the last run of Ergo ALRI ran, isn't living up to the hype. Can someone fill in some of the blanks here for me. I bought 4 bottles thinking it would be gone forever and now I'm wondering if I jumped the gun. I am finishing up an SD 3 weeker, up 10 lbs. and happy with the outcome so far.
What gains did you get from it?
Dosage, How long did you run it?
Did you get Gyno from it?
If you can think of anything else, please elaborate.

It has been reported to be the exact same thing as the first run, so results should be comparable. I have taken both together and loved it. On submaintenance calories I gained 6lbs while losing fat. My libido was insane and I looked harder/fuller/more vascular. Felt great on cycle too. My advice: don't pay attention to the internet hype, finish your pct, let your body fully recover AFTER PCT, and then take 20mgs a day for 4-6wks and decide for yourself what you think.

You took SD/Ergo together? I will finish and give it a shot. Not Ergo/SD together.Originally Posted by Dungeon1
Anybody else have anything to say about this stuff?

I made a poll about this in the now defunct ALRI section. Since its gone, I will paraphrase the results. There were about 30 responses.Originally Posted by Mach .78
(This is for Ergomax LMG, the "original")
40% experienced a huge increase in libido, 20% no change/a decrease in libido. 40% experienced some increase.
50% gained over 8 pounds, 50% gained 1-8 pounds.
40-50% gained "a lot" of strength, and the rest got some strength.
This is not what I had thought ergomax was known to do, i.e., boost libido and size a crapload in nearly everybody. There are clearly those that didn't respond as well on it as others.
However, that being said, and knowing that e...max contains DMT (same as Ergo), there have been three people who have told me they used Ergo and E..Max and that their cycle(s) with Ergo were VERY good and their cycle with E...Max was nowhere near it. This leads one to question whether e...max might be underdosed. I do not believe the "receptor downregulation" theory ALR put forth adequately explains this phenomenon, as two of the three who have relayed stories to me did TWO cycles of Ergomax and experienced the same strong gains twice, and the third time did not. The other person experienced strong gains, and the 2nd time (with E...Max) did not.
What would help is if those who have used both could chime in. You should expect the 2nd cycle to produce less results, but not qualitatively and only with a small (<50%) quantitative change.

Good post my friend. I would like this stuff to produce some results. Do you think Nutraplanet would take back 4 unopened bottles? If I'm going to put my liver through it, it better produce something.Originally Posted by SilentScream27
I would like to see some E-Max results then, because that's what I have. Post your E-max results people.
Again, thankyou for your help Silent Scream.

Ok, Like what I'm hearing. Do you have a log started somewhere? If you don't, do you at least have it written down? Come back to this thread and keep us updated on your progress. Is this your first run of anything, SD, Ergo etc? Keep it up man, good stuff.Originally Posted by JonasDavidsson

if i'm interpreting right the first cycle or two of these do well and after that they suck , so that means to me i'll use a great doseage and stack the first two times so there wont be any leftover after that for a sucky one that just tears up my liver.

Two weeks into, hopefully, an 8 week cycle, up 7 lbs. Strength gains across the board on all lifts, nothing dramatic 5-10lbs and/or a few more reps. This is particularly important, b/c I had really slowed making progress before trying E...Max LMG. The two weeks prior to starting I was stuck at the same weight as the previous week. This is my first go around with any of the ErgoMax formulas, I hope that the next one goes as well.

There's a 20% restocking fee at NP. I believe Raven herself stated that if anyone was not behind ALRI 100%, that she would give you a refund for your bottles.Originally Posted by Mach .78
What was your starting body weight, height, and BF%?Originally Posted by JonasDavidsson

If that was a "rule" we could apply across the board, then the two who used Ergomax twice would have seen not-so-great gains in their 2nd ergomax cycle and very bad gains in their 3rd (E...Max). This wasn't the case. More data is of course needed...Originally Posted by WATERLOGGED
Perhaps this may help. Who has done two SUPERDROL cycles about 3-4 months apart... and can they compare the gains/sides here in this thread?
08-06-2005, 05:51 PM
No I was referring to the old and new formulations of Ergo in one cycle. SD and Ergo would not be a good idea in the same cycle. Search around you'll find plenty of reasons.
08-06-2005, 05:55 PM
I never said that. I am merely trying to gauge how the strength/size/libido/other effects of SD changes from the 1st cycle to the 2nd cycle, and then will extrapolate to ergomax. So again, whoeever has used SD and then done SD again (note dosage and cycle length differences, and please, other hormones you were taking), let us know how things went.Originally Posted by Dungeon1

I am doing SD gain... I gained 4 pounds in the first 5 days on it second time around and I gained 6 pounds the first time around in that time period. This time around I am stacking with 75 mg of Prostanozol as well, first time it was all by itself. Don't think this matters much since Prostanozol is reported to be very mild as far as weight gain goes, but it's worth mentioning.
So... it seems like gains are slower, even stacked, but I would still consider the gains I'm experiencing exceptional especially considering I only use 10 mg per day.
I won't be able to do a full comparison to my first SD 3-weeker since I'm just doing a small 1-week section of SD before I start 4 weeks of E...Max.

E...Max makes me feel sick!
Just finished a two week trial of E..Max.. I gained 5 lbs, but felt sick the whole cycle. The first 1.5 weeks @ 20 mg/day E..Max completely ****ed up my sinuses, made me feel lethargic, made food "shoot" out of me and killed my sex drive. The last .5 week I felt the same but to a slightly lesser degree.
Obviously, I am either allergic, I respond opposite than most or ???? Of all the anabolics I have done throughout the years, this stuff made me feel by far the worse. It looks like my second bottle will be gathering dust.
Back to the dark side!

I asked Bohica and he said he ran SD 3 times so far with like 13, 15 and 18 lbs. to show for it. He must be a super responder. I want some of that.Originally Posted by SilentScream27

36lbs sounds like a lot....if those were in between cuts, then I can believe it. 36lbs on straight bulk is quite a bit though. Especially for a stand alone.
People too often exaggerate their gains and what steroids can do for you. Even the likes of Ronnie Coleman, etc, had to be on for years to gain huge amounts of weight.
Nobody is going to gain a solid 15lbs on a 3 week cycle. 5 lbs glycogen, 5 lbs water, 5 muscle maybe.
Too much hype gave myself and others too high of expectations. It just shouldn't be like that.
08-06-2005, 10:32 PM
EXACTLY...46 lbs in 3 cycles? Dam, run about 20 more cycles and this dude is gonna be 500+lbsOriginally Posted by kwyckemynd00
08-07-2005, 02:09 AM
I don't think he kept all those gains, that was merely the weight change from beginning to end of cycle. This is the most accurate measure in comparing steroid effects, as you don't need to control for varying PCTs.Originally Posted by Cheezefacta
08-07-2005, 07:38 AM
He used the same Pct (I think) for each cycle. I'll PM him to post here to see what he says about it.Originally Posted by SilentScream27
