So about 10 days ago I started an ATD stand alone cycle, added Activate 3 days later.
At the start of the cycle I had just come off NO products so I felt less pumped, but within the last few days Ive started to get that "on-cycle" pump going on.
Ive gained about 4 lbs so far, at first I thought the first two were BS because I pigged out the day before, but it didnt go away and over the weekend I gained a couple more.
Strength this weekend was higher, about 2 additional reps on most excercises. Added some more weight on bench and was able to do the same reps as when I peaked during my last ErgoMax/Prost cycle.
If anything I seem to have slightly more definition.
The only thing is, the original libido boost seems to have turned the other direction. Kinda pisses me off because if I didnt mind having less libido I would just do normal gear.
Anyway I will be on 3 caps/day ATD until friday then I begin tapering. So far it seems like this type of hormonal "boosting" cycle, as opposed to "replacement" hormonal, seems effective to a somewhat lesser degree.
Hopefully these products will continue to be available over the counter, so I can bridge cycles with something like this. My gameplan is kinda like...
Month 1 : 4 Week Cycle ( real gear )
Month 2 : PCT
Month 3-4 : NO Cycle ( CM + A-AKG )
Month 5 : ATD + Activate Cycle
Month 6 : NO Cycle ( CM + A-AKG )
Figure this will keep my gains going without my body adjusting to any specific part of it.
