    Of course, but there's also a lot of minformation out there (*cough* men's fitness and muscular development).

    I gave him the outline that I wish someone would've given me when I was screwing up.

    First, get your bodyfat checked either through a bodpod test or calipers (the more points, the more accurate). Then get a scale.
    Second, use an online calorie tracker. Myfitnesspal is the best in this regard. Figure out your TDEE and then increase it SLOWLY (this means adding 10-20 calories PER WEEK). If you find yourself wanting to speed it up, at most increase by another 50. A lot of guys can bulk at 2800-3600 cals, and some need 4500. It's all about finding what works for you. But make sure to do this slowly
    Third, eat the right food sources. MAKE SURE TO GET ENOUGH SATURATED FATS. I can't stress this enough. Eat a piece of steak and potatoes every night if you have to.
    Fourth, be realistic with your goals. If you're not on anabolics or something less hardcore (like Anabeta) you will AT MOST gain 1-3lbs of LEAN MASS per month. Lean mass = pure muscle. We're not talking muscle and fat. Sure, it's possible to gain 10-15 pounds in a month. But that will mostly be fat. Believe me, I've done it. Plus it wrecks havoc on your thyroid.
    Fifth, get a good training program and stick with for AT LEAST 3-6 months. Layne Norton's PHAT or PHUL work great for mass. You can also go on a 3 day full body split. (I like that the most and have found that my body reacts quite well to this type of training). Also, make sure to incorporate Periodization. Google is your friend as to this regard.
    Sixth, understand that you will plateau. It sucks and happens to everyone.
    Seven, understand that supplements are only 5% of this equation. They're your boost... your edge. Other than that, they are not magic. And if you treat them like magic then you will be disappointed, despondent, and bitter towards supplements. They work, you just have to understand HOW they work and what they NEED to work.
    Eight, just keep lifting, bro.
    Nice , thanks for your help.
    Well , yea i do live with my mom , so she makes the food , but i eat steack everyday + fish in the evening with rice / vegetables , i don't drink sodas , just some orange juice sometimes with my proteins.
    i never tracked my calories , i think it's the main problem , but when i eat too much rice / pastas etc , i get fat really fast. , i don't think i eat enough to gain muscles.
    If i could get 1-3 lean muscles / month , it would be just perfect , but i don't think that i can do that after 5 years of training.
    I'm 69 kgs , i started at 53 , and i'm about 10-12% bf.
    i do take anabeta elite ^^, i gained 2 kg since february , don't know if it's because of my leg training ( my legs can be more muscle , i used to train only the up body part ) , my legs are bigger then before.
    For my training , i don't count the break times , should i ?
    I train 3-5 times / week , and everyday i go outside with friends doing dips/pull ups .
    Yea supplements are magic , i know that , but for exemple , PES alphamine is helping me losing fat , i feel it , and looks like i have more energy.

    Anyway , i'll do my best to keep gaining muscles , for 5 years of training , i don't look big , that's demotivating .

    Just my 2 cents. Rather than going by scale weight, start a good powerlifting routine focusing on the big 3; squat, bench and deadlift. Instead of setting a goal to gain 1 to 3 pounds of muscle a month make it a priority to add 5 to 10 pounds onto your lifts every month. In one year you'll be lifting 60 to 100 pounds more than you're doing now and I guarantee you'll be significantly bigger. Dips and pullups are great but stop doing them everyday. And when you do them make sure they're weighted so you know you're getting stronger. Keep track of all your workouts so you know your numbers are going up. Once that's on track you're on your way to becoming a lot bigger without even trying.

    I just can't progress , i've tried to change my exercices etc , eat more , eat less , but i gain only 1-2 kg of lean muscle in 1 year , but the first year i gained like 8-10

    duh, the training effect decreases as training experience increases, welcome to the conjugate system of block training my friend

    Give it 2-3 more weeks and if it works and you like it, you can order more. If it doesn't work for you, don't buy more. It's that simple.

    I like your product over LGI's because it is more cost efficient, but purity is important and LGI has good reputation for producing reliable products.

    Okay, and so do we.

    Check out the logs popping up in the next following weeks regarding results on our products, this thread is about whether or not laxogenin works in a pct scenario, standalone scenario, or even works, not about purity, OL makes pure products.

    I wasn't accusing you of not making pure products/receiving impure raws, just noting LGI's good reputation. It wasn't meant to be a slight against you. I will keep an eye on the logs and maybe I will directly compare the results using both myself. I understand you want to defend your products but try to realize people are going to be critical basically no matter what you state. Its better to make friends on this forum than enemies. Im all for new brands making a name for themselves. Yes this thread is about if Laxogenin works, but shouldn't effectiveness be based on if your actually taking laxogenin, which has a horrendous track record of being impure/faked. I will take your word for it that str3ngth contains actual laxogenin.

    Did not say you accused, just simply said what needed to be said. We will of course have to measure the short term benefits vs the long term benefits of any product before discontinuing. We have discontinued products in the past but there is a market for STR3NGTH currently so we will continue to support it. Actually the fake laxogenin is probably whats "working" or giving the impression of working in the short run because its usually spiked with something else, but we're here to discuss whether if real laxogenin provides benefits in a pct scenario, standalone, short term and long term.

    As far as PHs are concerned I think most like to see post production lab results...there have been too many companies knowingly and unknowingly putting out contaminated products or just plain bulk...labs will carry a LOT more weight than logs to start. I think the cost of this ingred is what is making people suspicious~~no one likes to throw away money

    Add to the fact that it seems impossible to source "real" laxogenin, just doesn't seem like a smart investment to me, especially when considering so many tried and true supplements out today that DO work..

    Not trying to knock OL or any other company putting this out (LGI has as well, and they're a trusted company in my books), but it just doesn't add up to me

    Again, I'd really love to see "real" laxogenin, and see it really work, but it doesn't appear it's really in the cards

  11. The funny thing is... laxogenin is "discovered " by an american scientist in 1996 . That is actually not true at all.almost All publications are from japan and china. And first time laxogenin was discovered (japan 1963). Pubmed is the proof

    Even had Jake test it for all forum trolls.
    The Secretabridge has had awesome reviews. Yes, it's an expensive ingredient.

  16. I gonna stack it with PA (phosphatidic acid), HMB-FA and laxogenin

    I heard that the Blackstone product is supposedly well dosed and legit. I haven't tried any of these products yet though.

    But what separates the natural from the ProHormone version? Also if this isn't the thread for such convo a link to one would be nice as well

  21. 5ALaxo is a steroidal saponin. There is no PH version, however some companies place it in their PHs as a "boost." Str3ngth, DermaStr3ngth and Anogenin are simply 5ALaxo with no other ingredients. Whether or not this stuff works (biochemically) is up in the air. There are a few scant research papers, but no peer reviewed studies.

    I've only seen feedback from SecretABridge in which "subjects" report:
    -Better/more fluid joints
    -Some strength in the form of new PRs
    -Some leaning (but this could be the alleged cortisol reducing properties)

    PA had a thread about this way back: (3b,5a,6a,25R)-Spirostan-3,6-diol

    I'm interested in anecdotal feedback, but I will never waste money on this when there are such better options out there.

    At 1.5g per bottle its hard to believe that their laxogenin is well dosed or legit. Iv'e heard of some ph like gains in the first week and that just screams cross contamination/spiked to me. Laxogenin orally does not sprout ph like gains. There was another company as well that produced laxogenin a year ago and people were comparing it to halodrol. The company also magically took it off the market for 6 months and just came back out with it.

    Well, if the label is legit, it's a natural plant steroid rather than an actual PH like what we think of when thinking of PHs. It's a single ingredient product going by the label of Anogenin.

    I thought all you really needed was around 100 mg's of laxogenin for it to be effective. So that would equate to 1 bottle of the Anogenin lasting 15 days. As for claims of PH-like gains, people make these silly claims all the time, I don't place much weight in those claims, but I am always willing to give products a fair go to see if it does something or nothing. Haven't tried Anogenin or any laxogenin product yet though.

    You should apply to log for DermaSTRENGTH, great opportunity to try transdermal laxogenin. Laxogenin is best used between 100-200mg's per day as reported by our customer base.

  27. Laxogenin is pretty new to me personally so I haven't done that thorough of legwork to look into it but I have seen numerous claims that most laxogenin products are not effective because they are bogus? I also seem to recall that it's a pretty expensive raw to source in the first place. Any general consensus on this? I only thus far had one person actually tell me over PM that the Blackstone product is super legit but I've never tried any laxo or Blackstone products and for all I know, it may be placebo or it may not be. Anybody else whom have had experience with various laxo products have input on this matter?

    There is two laxogenin suppliers (who actually produce it) and we have access to both, as stated before I am getting another supplier to custom produce it as well. I am hearing the same things about their laxo that I heard about the company that had a tainted version, so you see it leads me to believe they are both spiked, I could be wrong though but seeing that LGI's and OL's produce the same sort of results we may have a pattern here.

    I have tested so many H-Drol raws as of late and may have finally found a presentable one but we will see, I am very picky when it comes to Quality Control and having access to options is a must.

  32. I was just looking at Str3ngth and DermaStr3ngth, I was pretty surprised at the huge price differential between Str3ngth and Anogenin. It's a $10 difference and you get double the amount with Str3ngth per bottle, how is this possible? Anybody tried both products that can make a compare and contrast? If I give this stuff a go, I would much prefer to go the more economic route, obviously.

    It's possible. You'd be surprised if you knew the real prices of raws of many supplements. They're not THAT expensive.

    I can definitely believe it, but definitely not willing to buy a bottle of each and do a compare and contrast, lol. Hopefully someone out there has done that already so that I don't have to :P If not, hopefully someone will.

    We publicly release lab results on our subforum, check it out. Our laxogenin products are a real deal. Not sure if we've already published results of lax but we'll definitely do it soon.

    Because all of Blackstone Labs products are extremely pricey... They think very highly of their products. *not saying that's a bad thing, but makes it hard to stay competitive.
