On May 9th I started on osta at 12.5 ED. I have read various logs on these forums about rise in estrogen and some shutdown occuring even at smaller doses. (12.5 being the most common safe dose)
It seems to me after surfing the web for every bit of info I can get on this SARM that the higher the dose the closer the sides are to that of an actual test cycle. The only thing that worries me is the possibility of gyno.
I am unsure if it will work but to try to offset the rise in estrogen I am taking 2 caps of a day along with the Osta. (((((Any input on this would be great!!!)))))
I am currently on day 19 so let me catch everyone up on the progressions.
Height 5-5 Starting Weight 151 Extremely clean diet consisting of mostly chicken.
Week 1: Weight 151
Most a placebo effect the first few days. Lifts stayed the same. No change in mood or real change in body comp. Added 4 days of cardio in after my lifts doing intervals for 15 minutes on the treadmill. Overall not much to report the first week.
Week 2: Weight 149
Started the 2nd week most definetly witnessing the fat burning properties as I was without a doubt cutting up around the midsection. No change in my lifts throughout the week but my muscles were definetly fuller and my abs were coming out. Very paranoid about the estrogen rise.
Week 3: Weight 147
Definetly kicked in full force this week. Muscles are full, lefts are up a tad bit, nothing major but the pumps stick around after workouts and muscle tone looks good. Abs are looking good and fat is shedding off, almost ready for the beach. Test may be down a bit as libido is def down and i dont know if im overeacting but feel a bit sensitive in the chest. Like I stated before I am very paranoid about gyno side effects. Nothing major in the libido drop but I am tempted to pick up some sustain alpha as this stuff worked great when I did an H drol last summer. It is currently day 19 and I will pick up from here.
