    Best mass building supplement of the last few years


    hi all,

    I've been off the forum for the last few years so, have lost track of what supplements have become popular from receiving good feedback. When I was last a regular the rage was the hypermass stack, jungle warfare, x factor and t-Bol. I'm looking for some suggestions on what to run for 1-2 months given today's supplements available. I am looking for something to help build mass.

    I'm just finishing up PCT (clomid and rebound xt) from a m-drol cycle and will have a few months before starting up a phera cycle so would like to use this to bridge the gap.

    My staples already include:

    Whey /Casein
    Creative Gluconate
    BCAA
    Multi
    Vit C
    Glucosamine
    Fish oil


    Cheers

    I still feel x-factor is one of the best go to products for this goal. Of new things though check out AnaBeta. Quick search around the forum should yield plenty of feedback if you want it.

    AnaBeta + Plenty of CHO and Calories = Recipe for some great success in my own experiences.

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I'll do a search for lots of feedback, but in short is this a hormonal product? Ideally would like to stay away from those given my recent m-drol run and phera coming up. If it does have a hormonal effect, is the consensus that it is suppressive and a PCT required?

    I did a run of XF about 5 years ago but didn't get anything noticeable from it.

    Anabeta is not suppressive and does not require pct.

    Anabeta is an awesome product and i really enjoyed MassFX as well.

    Ive been thinking of possibly stacking the two at some point.

    As bolt stated and I completely agree with, arachadonic acid is probably one of the most effective non-hormonal mass gainer out there. X-Factor is still around and good, pick the original over X-Factor Advance though, or go with X-Gels. Take at least 1g before each workout and you'll be set. If you want to elicit a greater response, add 2g of ALCAR and 1g of Agmatine. Add in D-Aspartic Acid (DAA) and you'll have a nice simple stack.

    Once I get some extra cash I will jump on it. I just keep forgetting about it.

    Mass FX/Hard FX stack does great for me so I don't think about it much. It isn't until threads like these that remind me that I need to try it.

    I have an addiction to anabeta. My bottles and I meet every night with a couple of steaks and some cheese to discuss our feelings. Mostly I just tell the steak to shut up, cut its damn throat and then eat it with cheese.

    I agree with you on this T-Bone. However, I must also say that Anabeta does have a tendency to make you crave buffalo burgers quite a bit too.

    I've personally used ArA (old school x-factor) and USPLabs prime with great success. There are a good number of reviews on both.

    AnaBeta seems to be getting a lot of solid reviews.

    In my experience Anabeta really shines when you eat the **** out of some carbs. The reps will give you the lowdown, but in my opinion I think taking AB on a low carb diet would not yield the greatest gains compared to the gains seen on a high carb diet.

    I have been away for a while but I do believe I posted my thoughts on the original AnaBeta way back when and I specifically mentioned I do not think it should ever be a consideration to run it on a low carb diet. Honestly if you are afraid of carbs then you shouldn't be using something like AnaBeta. However, if you are doing a recomp then AnaBeta can be used quite effectively. It really just depends on how you manipulate your macros in your diet when using it. Just my two cents.

    Cheers!

    I'm coming off of a long oral cycle on Friday (I'm on TRT so no PCT). Starting Saturday: DAA + Erase + Activate Xtreme + AnaBeta + X-Factor.

    Why I like Triazole? One of the few products to consistently give me strength gains in the gym. I believe the effect may be independent of aromatase inhibition.

    I've read some great things about it, particularly with lowering inflammation in the body. The science behind it (at a basic level) seemed to make sense to me. I have asthma and get bad joint pain, so thought it would be worth a try. Currently in week 3. Will see out the month and assess.

    But I digress, don't want to totally derail this thread. Thanks to those who answered my question, much appreciated!
