    Are AnaBeta Gains Keepable?


    I ran AB at 4 caps/ day and blew up, in a caloric deficit. It was amazing. Now I'd like to run at 6 caps/ day for 6 weeks in a surplus. But I noticed... as soon as I stopped the AB... I didn't look the same. Not in my head. I've got pictures of me down the shore toward the end of the run looking GREAT. Haven't looked like that since. But I did run keto right after AB and might have done it wrong, rendering myself flat and gross.

    Oh, right, so, did you keep all of your AB gains?

    Haha but that was 5-6 months down the road man. If you figure out your new maintenance value it's very easy to keep the gains. The way I cut is I bulk 3-5 months and then cut. I know I'll lose some muscle but now that ive learned about beta-2-adrenoreceptors I used those to my advantage to preserve muscle and tap into adipose. Alphamine has really helped me achieve what I want when I go into a cut. Just plan your nutrition accordingly and you'll be surprised.

    I've kept all size and strength gains. Is AnaBeta the only thing you stopped? Also, you're fine taking 4/day. No reason really to take 6.

    Never lost any gains coming off. Just some decreases in muscle fullness, etc.

    Actually, people have had good results with 6 ED. If you do some searching there's quite a few logs out there

    Now I'm second-guessing. I should still get the two bottles and run 6 ED for 6 weeks, right? Right. I think so.

    If you enjoyed 4 caps a day so much I would probably just stick there. You'd get 2 more weeks of AB use out of it with that scheme. 6 may be better but it may not be worth it if 4 is already very effective.

    I'm thinking AB and Slintensity to finish out my first bulk ever and keep the gains as lean as possible.

    I agree with this. If you go on a low carb diet immediately afterwards then that will also have an effect, obviously.

    This is definitely true.

    I've always kept the gains I've made on ABE. You may lose some glycogen retention when you come off if you're not eating the same amount.

    Even strength gains I keep.

    I suggest you bump it up to 6 caps a day. Or do 4 ABE, and 2 AB which I'm doing now. It's amazing how much of a difference you see with the 2 extra caps.

    I've never used Slintensity. I have used Anabeta Elite and Anabolic Pump before with phenomenal results.

    Anecdotally, when AnaBeta-01 was first released for it's beta test most of the loggers commented on what they speculated to be glucose disposal qualities within skeletal muscle. This was not something that was told to us (I was one of the beta testers) to minimise placebo effect.

    I am reluctant to combine AnaBeta with glucose disposal products where blocking carbohydrate absorption is one of the mechanisms.

    I am not saying the products wouldn't stack well. I am just saying that the added 'GDA' might inhibit one of the things which makes AnaBeta so good.

    IMO, all gains are can be maintained from a natty supplement if diet and training are there.
