  1. Here's my stash, what are your thoughts on a recomp?


    Goals: Gain 5 pounds lean mass, lose 5 pounds fat

    Cycle Hx: Halo, Phera

    I have several combinations of pct supplies to cover just about any combination of legal designers.

    Stash:
    Epi original label (1)
    Havoc (1)
    Furazadrol (2)
    Superdrol (2)
    Prostanazol (unfortunately only 1 bottle)
    Propadral (1)

    My thoughts are:

    1) Furaz to Havoc or Epi bridge

    2) In addition to option #1, I'd add prostanazol double dosed in the first 2 weeks and Propadrol double dosed for the duration.

    3) Havoc or Epi stacked with Furaz or prop with high dosage for a 3 week shorty

    4) Insert your idea here ... that's the whole point of this thread

    I say get either the Havoc or the Superdrol in there. I would think stacking either one with furazadrol would be nice for a little recomper effect.

    My suggestion:

    Superdrol: 10,20,20,20 or Havoc: 20,30,40,40
    and
    Furazadrol: 200,200-250,250,250


    I would save the rest for a different cycle. I just may be doing a little variation with superdrol or havoc myself very soon.

  3. Thanks for your input broski

    Do you think +5 lean mass and -5 fat is reasonable with a strict diet for Havoc/Furaz? I feel like I'm pretty good at manipulating my macros based on weekly skinfolds (I use a caliper so I know that recomp is occuring, rather than just guessing like most do).

    I have a few more Havoc questions for the expert rep but we'll just take it one issue at a time.

    I think it's very possible bro. It sounds like you're very in tune with setting up the macros which is key to this stacks success. I have some furazadrol on hand myself and am curious to use it.

    This stack just may be tough on the joints though. I'd definitley have a good amount of support in there. Maybe have some DHEA on hand to. I'm dying to try PP "Dermacrine" transdermal spray.

    If there is anything i can do to help, please let me know buddy.

  5. With your experience already celc, I would suggest the Epi @ 30/40/40/50 and the Furaz @250/300/350/400 for a strong 4-Weeker! And I definitely think those goals of muscle gain and fat loss are attainable and keepable!!!! THE THUNDERGOD

    I really think stacked the Furaz at that dosing will be absolute murder on the joints, and won't offer any additonal benefits, only sides.

    The Havoc dosing looks solid though.

    We're on the same page so far.

    The two things I see as sides for this stack were joints and BP. For whatever lucky reason, I seem to be resiliant to BP issues so far on cycle. But, I will still preload my hawthorne berry and run it throughout the cycle.

    Past joint issues are under control since I've been training mostly submaximally with HST techniques on and off for the past 6 months. I also have plenty of cissus and Glucosacream on hand, just in case. Both have worked well for me in the past.

    Next question, I've seen a small group of people on other boards recommending short 3 weekers for epithios at a higher dosage, in the 40/50/60 range. What are your thoughts on this strategy in terms of post cycle recovery, libido, and likelihood for other sides that we haven't discussed?

    Definitely agree here, I just ran epi (30/30/30/40) with furaz (200/200/200/250) as my first cycle and found it relatively low dose ( im ~205).

    My aim was a lean bulk, but got carried away with the PB and carbs and ended up eating around 4500 cals a day, and gained a lot of weight and fat, mild strength gains. I thing this stack is ideal for a cut/recomp as oppose to a bulk.

    The only sides I had was minor forehead acne towards the end of week 4, and 2 days into PCT its already going down. Joints and back pumps were not an issue, I had cissus and taurine but didnt use either, no lethargy, no noticeable testicular atrophy etc. hope this helps a bit

    Depends on the user really no? I did this stack slightly lower dose (see above post) with zero joint issues. However if I could do it again, I wouldnt stack them, I would have just ran havoc/epi at a higher dose. Maybe bridging could work

    I've read some of those. At anything above 40mg/day the shutdown will be more harsh. I think it can work really well for a quick 3 weeker at high dosing, but the sides and shutdown will be more noteable at that dosing (50-60mg)

    I think you'll get much better and retainable recomp effects with a 4 weeker. I think the 3 week power cycle is great if you wanted to bulk, but for what you want to do i'd go ahead with how we've set it up already.

    I've never had any issue with libido myself at 40mg and under.

    Yes and No. I know that ThunderGod is a big guy, and it may work for him, but stacking the furaz with havoc is really up in the air on how bad it will effect joint issues.

    I honestly believe that furaz in the 200-250mg/day range stacked with havoc would yield the best recomp effects for MOST people, not everyone.

    Havoc at 30/30/40/40-50 would work fine with the furaz.

    Thats the dose I used for furaz, and had no issues.

    Furaz over 250-300mg/day isn't going to offer any more benefits in the majority imo. My buddy who's 250+lbs ran it a few times in a stacker and said anything over 250mg/day didn't add anything noteable to the stack.

    I should get slow mun in here to see what he has to say about the furaz.

    Havoc dosing will vary greatly between a bulker and a recomper. The 40mg/day range would be max imo. 30,30,40,40 should work well for a cycle designed for that in most.

    Thats interesting. I see a lot of people running furaz up to 500-600mg. I would be interested as to what slow-mun would say.

    As for the havoc, I suppose it depends how the OP reacts to it. Some get enough out of it at 30mg, some need it at 40mg+. So for recomp and cut lower doses are needed then?

    500-600mg/day? Interesting, but i think that's completely pointless and certainly not cost effective at that dose.

    For a recomp or cut 30-40mg/day should work best for MOST, not all.

    I base this all from my own personal experience as well as all the cumulative feedback we've received. I should add a section for bulk vs. recomper vs. cut in the havoc write-up.

    I think the reason that I have no apparent joint problems even with extremely heavy training, is that I take 20 grams of healthy efa's everyday. 12 grams of fish oil and 8 grams of flax seed oil. Everyday!! It works as an anti-inflammatory and it'll practically "lube" your joints!! THE THUNDERGOD

    I actually haven't seen or heard of anyone running Furazadrol at 500-600mg a day. I wouldn't think that would be a very cost effective cycle, since it would take two bottles to get a week done. I think the OP would be just fine with an Epithio at 30-40mg and Furazadrol at 200mg for 4 weeks. I don't think a bridge is necessary and I wouldn't recommend it. On the flip side, if someone is pushing 275lbs+ and running Furazadrol at the upper end of dosing, then that would make sense IMHO. It just seems as if most of the regular posters around here are between 175-225lbs and needlessly assume that higher dosages equal better results, b/c they heard of someone else's success from doing so.

    Yeah EFA's are definitely key. Tear it up TG!

    Interesting, I see 400mg+ being thrown around at bb a lot. I used 2 bottles for 4 weeks. I thought using like 8 8 bottles was excessive Thanks for the response

    You got your reasoning for inaccuracies once you mentioned the site the info. came from. JK, but I feel that is one of the worst sites to get any type of OTC hormonal cycle knowledge and advice from(non-hormonal is a different story entirely LN is the man). There are good amount of hormonal company reps there that are under 21 on there and have ran numberous cycles with what appears to be lackluster results. Its also a place that tries to makes posters feel guilty for using products of this nature.

    tell me about it. I learn a bit off PA's posts there, and there are a few that definitely know their stuff, but in general people there over-emphasize things. They will jump down the throat of a 19-20 year old who has been training for 5 years with great diet/training etc, but a 22 year old who has been training for 4 months wont get grief because he is 21+ !!!! They also over-do PCT's there, you will see a low dose epi cycle, with nolva 40/40/20/20 plus an AI plus a test booster plus cortisol control, plus dhea and much more for PCT.

  24. Good posts guys!

    Thanks for your input as always Sol! I had planned on contacting you eventually. But since you're here already, do you have any thoughts on feedback on Furaz frontloading? I've seen a few suggest that running it at 250-300mg for the first week to get it to kick in and then cruising at 150 or 200 for the duration of the stack. Thoughts?

    I guess I should mention stats since we're talking about dosing now... I'm 192 at 12% bodyfat. Macros are about 300/300/60. I'll start out pretty close to that but protein will get in the 350 to 400 range on cycle.

    Front loading may work..... I'm not going to knock it because I've never tried it. If you plan on doing it, then I'd be interested to see the results. On the flip side of the coin, it may prove to be an unnecessary experiment, b/c you'll still get great results without any risks by running it at the same dosage straight through. I'm all for the experiementation though. I like it when people try new things that may prove to be of benefit for others. I say front load.

  29. Havoc 30/30/40/40
    Furaz 300/200/200/200

    2 bottles Furaz and 1 bottle Havoc should last 26 days.

    Thoughts?
