Spent some time with the parents today, and really got into supplementation discussions again. My foster father has been training since his teen years, and he's well into his 50's now. He's currently in a medium build, somewhere around 200lbs, and fairly lean. He's run 1AD in the past (and possibly more, but nothing that I know of and won't pry out).
He's looking to get down and dirty and try out some of the new supplements today, and is telling me how he still has some 1AD left that he wants to give another go-around to. His buddy set him up with SAW PAWMETTO for PCT, so he lost all his gains from his cycle... oh how much knowledge has been publicized since the 80's and 90's. I'm going to try to push some of the new stuff, as it just produces better gains that are easily to hold into in PCT. He cracked the 500lb mark on the bench press with his 1AD cycle, so it'll be tough to pry him off from going around again.
So I'm designing a stack for him to use. However, I'm first going to run him with some natural test boosters, as at his age I think he'll benefit a lot from. So please do critique my little setup here, and keep in mind it's for a 50 year old in decent shape. Decades of weight lifting, and his diet is in good enough check (as good as it will be). Another thing to keep in mind is that he's still fairly new to supplements, and he won't go with any bulk powders. I got a little excited talking about supplements, and started talking about Dermacrine and Sustain. Really lost him there - topical applications just push it too far for him.
Phase 1 (6 weeks) - MassFX + Activate Xtreme
*I see both compounds contain Divanil.. would it be overlap?
Phase 2 (4 weeks) - Epistane + Propadrol
*Seems to be the best for strength gains, while considering sides. He might go with 1AD anyways. In either case, I'll be sure to talk to him about the correct support supplements and a proper PCT.
Basically, I'm ordering for him tonight, so any feedback is greatly appreciated, especially on the MassFX/Activate Xtreme possible overlap. That's why this thread is a bit ambiguous... would have had more research done before, but no time! Glad to see the old guy interested though in my blabbering sharade about supplements - definitly thought he was going to shoot anything down! Also - BCAA's, creatine, beta-alanine, and all those goodies... he won't stick to them. Too complicated for him, believe it or not. I won't even confuse him with them... not until another time, if at all.
