XI-KT with Formabolic PCT
Just wanted to run this past some of the more experienced users before I started. I am going to run 30 days of xi-kt at 1ml a day followed by Formabolic. I was thinking of running Formabolic at 150mg for ~40 days.
I am 32 yoa, 3 years lifting experience, 6'2" 210lbs. My goal here is recomp. Thanks for any advice you can give.

Man I been on x1 for 2weeks and the only good thing about it is that you get boners like you were 16 , but not recomp effects at all....

X1 does not kick in until week 3. And I would run it at least 1.5. Should have got two- three bottles. For PCT, you don't need an A1....and at 1 bottle of X1 for 30 days at 1ml...you don't need anything. If running at 1.5 for two - three bottles, PCT is covered with an OTC test booster; however, Formabolic will cover you too - and very well.

Finishing up bottle #2 of XI-KT and for me, weeks 2-3 were the best. Really helped me lean out in the middle. Afterwards, the results kind of leveled off. Used 1.5ml daily.

I have to say, I just finished up a run of 11-KT from Iron Legion and I was SOOOO excited to get it. I've run 11-Oxo at high doses in the past with moderate results and expected to have at least that with the 11-KT. I was very disappointed. Extremely. It wasn't even as good as 11-Oxo orally IMO.
I ran it for a little over 9 weeks. 2 weeks at 1 ML/day (all in the morning), 27 days @ 2 ML/day split in even doses morning/night, almost 3 weeks @ 3 ML/day split in even doses, or 2 ml morning and 1 ml/night, and then the final week at 4 ML/day split in even doses.
This is longer than any run I've seen logged and I spent 4+ weeks at what most would say is a high dose of this stuff. I was not impressed. I wish I was. I lost about 2 pounds in those 9 weeks. I am about 40% bodyfat so I am WAY higher than most on this board and many may say it was too soon for me to be using it. I THINK it may have leaned out my chest, shoulders, etc. a little bit - but it's hard to say. The scale didn't move at all, and neither did my waist measurement or the bodyfat on my scale - so it is tough to claim it was a recomp with no weight change. My strength went up moderately. The last 2-3 weeks, my diet was not in check.
I've lost about 45 pounds over the last year or so, and I'm wondering if metabolic damage is partly to blame, so as part of my PCT I am kind of doing a re-feed for a few weeks. But the stuff just wasn't impressive.
For PCT I am running Alphamax from Performax labs, 3 grams of DAA and transdermal 7-oxo. I have some Nolva on hand, but I don't feel the need...I normally run it after the 11-oxo, and it is smart, but I think it is unnecessary for me, in this case. Of course blood work would be smart, but I can't afford it right now.
My overall feeling is that the 11-KT is DRAMATICALLY overpriced and I think they have crammed too much active into a small amount of solution. I never bought PA's 11-KT, but I believe he had much more solution in a serving (I am guessing about 8 ml servings) and delivered about 250 mg/day of 11-KT. The XI-KT is about 85 mg/ml from what I can tell...so they are cramming as much into 3 ML as PA put in 8 ML, but also selling about 1/3 the 11-KT per bottle. I feel like if they increased the volume of the carrier and treated this as a 200-300 mg/day product, the results may be more in line with the pricing.

Reduction of cortisol via 11β-HSD1 may reduce fat and allow the acquisition of muscle tissue, via central nervous system stimulation; simply allowing the trainee to lift and train with more volume and weight. However, inhibition of this enzyme will NOT inherently build muscle.
This is why it's more suited for a bulking cycle.
It can be used during a weight reduction phase, and mileage will vary depending on the subject’s body fat percentage. But where this product will really shine is during a lean mass acquisition phase, with calories slightly above maintenance, a volume-based training regimen while stacked with another prohormone. The driest prohormone with the least amount of side-effects would be a 1-DHEA based product. On the safer side, a selective-androgen-receptor-modulator (SARM) such as Ostarine might be even safer. However, the main point is that this must be used in conjunction with another compound and a caloric surplus or it won’t be of much use.

Bottom line, it's all about the diet.

Sounds like there was no attention to diet to only lose 2lbs after 3 bottles. You could have lost 5-6lbs in that time from diet alone.
