Test booster/AIs/etc. on a cut
As someone who's always been skeptical of test boosters, and the purpose of reducing estrogen etc. I have to ask if there is any specific reason people like taking this stuff on a cut? Is there anything synergistic of taking either of these (or both of them if they're combined into one supplement) while on a caloric deficit? For more clarity, would this benefit someone with normal test levels/of young age?

usually people over train / under eat when they're trying to lose bf / weight. Test will lower and cortisol will raise, hence why some people use test booster or other drugs to help diet.Serious Nutrition Solutions

There's certainly a benefit to hormonal optimization for any goal, however what you're getting out of something that is OTC may not live up to your expectations.

They can definitely be beneficial, specifically in retaining strength and muscle mass while cutting. And as Beanpole said, the water weight reduction is a big one from armistane. I've been running alphamax, our test booster with an AI in it while on a cut with Alphamine with great results. I'm 31 though and the test boosting effects are more prevelant the older you get.

good information in here....i also like test boosters for the extra aggression they may give me when calories are reduced
some of my favorites are testopro,tropinol xp, and bulbine

I agree that Alphmax would make a great addition to a cutting cycle for a couple reasons. First helping to boost testosterone while controlling estrogen and cortisol should certianley assist in helping the user to maintain more muscle mass and strength. On top of containing Arimistane, it also contains 50mg of 95% Forksolin, an ingredient well known for its recomping effect, helping to increase LBM while decreasing FM.

I think they can be very beneficial when utilized properly, and expectations aren't to high. On my last couple of cuts I've used Nolvadren XT and had some nice leaning/hardening effects starting towards the end of week two. It's become a staple of mine while cutting.
Recently I've been running a recomp log, more emphasis on leaning out, and stacked PR-XT, Na DAA and Nolvadren XT along with some Forskolin 95 and had some pretty phenomenal results with it. Much more than I had anticipated with hardly any adjustments to my overall diet.

I personally love an AI when cutting. Used to use 6 oxo with all my cuts and I always gained strength while losing fat. Also AIs dry you out which makes you look leaner.

I've used tropinol and intimidate on a cut for a contest. Made the cut that much easier, was not nearly as moody, and libido was high along with getting some sleep and not waking up in the middle of the night wanting to eat a cow.

yeah i love using AIs on a cut also. Actually, if i had to choose an AI vs a fat burner for a cut I would pick an AI. Thats just me though. I know how to control my diet and my training works with my body.

Thanks for all of the replies! I don't expect miracles from this stuff, but I notice people go crazy stacking this stuff. I was seeing if it was all worth it after I start cutting after my ArA cycle. Seems like for someone as young as me, it merely serves as a mood enhancer.

I love the way AIs dry me out when I cut. The muscle hardness is always something I notice.

I'm in the mind set that I'd rather use a complete test booster during a cut than using an AI, i find once you stop the AI on a cut that the benefits it gave you goes away fairly quickly
thats why i'd recommend something like Tropinol XP over something like erase, it'll give many more benefits than just dryness that an AI won't give you on a low calorie diet

because for me anyway, an ai type product doesn't usually give me the aggresive feeling in the gym, i don't usually get a libido bump from ais, or the well being ....low calorie diets tend of wreck havoc in the motivation in the gym which stimulants could help with but libido could drop and just that feeling of crappyness when your not getting enough carbs

I know its mentioned earlier but a good comprimise could be Alphamax, contains 75mg of Arimistane so you get you strong AI to drop water etc. But also contains Divanil, L-Dopa, 95% Forskolin, ZMA, Vitamin D3 which will all help with the general testosterone boosting aspect as well!

What about Natty test boosters? Alphamax has armistane already in it, and most who use products such as Endosurge, DAA, etc... use erase to go along with that. I agree that they shouldn't be used longer than the recommended usage states but to each their own.
