Well, I always discounted dhea because, much like most the people I have talked to, I just didnt get it. I didnt get how it could convert at any substantial rate to something somewhat desireable. I mean, I always knew about the anti-catabolic effects and such, but I never thought it was ever really worth the possible suppression.
Now here I am, thinking the complete opposite. It wasnt until lg sciences joined the board that I realized how much potential dhea and its metabolites actually have. Ever since that faithful day that I stumbled accross the thread "how androsterone works", I have been researching non-stop these fabulous little hormones.
After much research, I have come to the conclusion that it is time for me to a little experiment. I am going to mega-dose dhea with a fairly high dose of atd. I have been bulking a little bit to sloppilly and I need to shed a little bit of fat.... approximately five pounds. What I hope to achieve is a really nice recomp. I want to drop about five pounds of fat while only loosing a couple of pounds in the process. I have contemplated throwing other cutting goodies in there too, but I think for the sake of the experiment I will leave them out. (I was thinking about some thyro-tabs and some tta and some forslean) I think that this idea should be fairly interesting to most of you guys, hence why I have decided to keep a record of my progress.
The experiment will last 4 weeks. I believe that 4 weeks should be enough time to gauge whether or not mega-dosed dhea can in fact be a viable bodybuilding tool. If at the end of those four weeks the results are not noteworthy, the experiment will end. I will keep my training and diet the same. I only eat slightly over maintenance and very rarely ever binge. I feel that dhea's main advantage would be for a recomp effect. I doubt anyone would ever put on like 5 lbs clean in a month off this stuff, but it may still have its purpose as a low suppression recomp substance. I will be missing a few days at the gym during the experiment just because I will be moving to miami in two weeks. Other than that, there shouldnt really be any interuptions.
So what do you guys say, do you guys feel that it is worth it for me to log it? Or could you care less? I just feel that this log could be a benefit to the forum because I havent come accross any other ones like it.
As well, everything will be taken orally. We already know that works, so there is no need to log a cheap reproduction of that.
