Indeed, the transdermal AI's can really shape up a body, which is essentially what I'm wanting. If I wanted to play the size game, I'd be on an M-drol/P-Plex and 1,500 calorie Weightgainer cycle right now, but no . . damn, I don't care if winter time's coming up, keeping lean year round is a preference .. right now, I'm trying to get to my last years best conditioning, but that was following a long-a$$ keto-diet stint, and I'm not about to do that right now .. BUT, I'm leaning up considerably; people at the gym are telling me it's happening at a wicked rate, and I'm feeling like over all, with diet, training and supplementation, things are really working out at the moment !
As for the 7-OXO DHEA, I'm still a little fresh on it, still looking into and researching it. But basically, 7-OXO DHEA increases thermogenic enzyme activity and supports healthy thyroid function. I'm finding different results with different studies as far as effects on the body's hormonal environment; http://www.topical-7-oxo.com; a couple PubMed studies are shown that may add some interest.
I'm creating a Dermabolics MetaCort hybrid; 6-OXO, 7-OXO DHEA, plus HCL (for the trouble areas; obliques) and perhaps Ashwaghanda (as suggested by Russian to boost immune function, cope with stress, etc).
