    what is the most effective 8 week test supplement?


    I am currently running a hyperdrol, mass fx and retain stack for 8 weeks. After the stack is over im going to take 4 weeks off and run another 8 week stack. I was wondering what you guys thought would be the best and most effective 8 week test booster, estrogen minimizer and cortisol blocking stack?

    My two ideas
    1. -X factor 50 days
    -2 Bottles of Mass fx
    -( insert here??????)
    2. -Mass fx- Four weeks
    -Superdrol NG- Four weeks
    -3-AD- 4 weeks
    -TRisorbagen- 4 weeks
    -Advanced PCT- 4 weeks
    - Retain- 4 weeks

    or hyperdrol, mass fx and reatin again. I like AX stuff a lot and am doing a log for them now. Any suggestions????

    Drive would go very well with option #1- it is VERY synergistic with X-Factor, and I imagine that it would also go well with Mass-Fx- there have been a number of logs on various boards documenting the effectiveness of the X-Factor/Drive stack.

    We just put together the Testosterone boosting stack. Its a synergistic combo to maximize T production, and it would likely stack well with the x-factor -

    I will stack X-Factor with Gaspari Novedex XT. As good a test booster as I have ever seen.

    One person experience. Typically it helps to use oil/fat when using test booster. So say you take in 3 caps before bed, try to take that with 2 whole eggs(and some egg whites) or some olive oil. Will get you better result.

    ive always been real skeptical on novedex primarily cuz GNC sells it. Ive been considering a bunch of stacks and i like what i read about DTH. I also like what i read about powerfull and the AX stack and drive and x factor. Has anyone out there takin a combo of a couple of these and can comment on effectiveness? Im planning a 8 week stack and i want incredible results....

    In my opinion, either stack is great. Anything you put with the new massfx will give great strength gains! I know from personal experience. although, if you are not 21 or older i would advise against the 3-ad. Personally, the second stack is to expensive for my taste. I would go with the first stack and add in a few things.


    1. -X factor 50 days
    -2 Bottles of Mass fx
    -2 Bottles of Alpha drive xl
    -2 Bottles of NOW DIM
    -bulk Beta Alanine

    This would give you great strength gains and some lean muscle gains.

    On the other hand, the second stack if you have the money, would be crazy sick! I i had the money i would buy all the AX products!

    thanks for the advice. How exactly would i dose that stack? Another stack im thinking now would be something using deisel test hardcore. I just wish there was a definitive answer out there for which product gave the best weight and strength gains.

    1. -X factor 50 days: 5 pills a day, on the xfactor diet
    -2 Bottles of Mass fx: 2 pills pre and 2 pills post workout!
    -2 Bottles of Alpha drive xl: 1 pill with massfx (1 pre and 1 post with massfx) then 1 in either the morning or at night.
    -2 Bottles of NOW DIM: follow what the bottle says.
    -bulk Beta Alanine: 3grams a day split in to 2 doses. I do 1.5g with my pre workout shake and 1.5g with my post workout shake.


    thats how i would do it. like i said the massfx with get you strong as hell alone, adding in these supps will just give mass and a lil more strength. Also, i think it will help the mass stay on far after your done with the stack.

I dont know if i should switch up my next stack completly or add some stuff to this one. What exactly would the x factor diet be? and how would like powerfull or deisel test add to the AX triple stack

    dth a test booster. seeing that you have massfx a test booster, i think it would be overkill.


    the powerfull would be ok for boosting hgh, but still with this stack i think i would get a mass gainer instread of another hormone boosting product.


    the xfactor diet: i couldnt really explain in detail, hit jjohn up and he will tell you what it's all about.

    I would add a mass gainer so i can gain considerable size. creatineand xfactor i think are the best.

    What about 6-oxo? IIRC, There was a clinical study showing doubling of testosterone levels in 8 weeks.

    the alpha drive xl is to give you more of the active in the massfx. they will complement each other well.

    search for swansons dim. It's cheap and a good amount. the dim is good, because you need estrogen in your body to build muscle, and this actually make the estrogen the best type for building muscle.

    Overrated but only just a tad. It is one of the rare test boosters that wont give you loss of hair or any side-affect. Plus you can get the 180 tablet bottle for about 60 bucks or so, better than most popular test boosters.

    I would personally recommend 6OXO to a first timer. If they go straight to powerful test boosters the sheer aggression would make them go nuts.

    I would personally recommend 6OXO to a first timer. If they go straight to powerful test boosters the sheer aggression would make them go nuts.

    actually they did a study and did find it causes hair loss. I will find it for you.

    no, retain2 is a cort blocker and dim will help make better estrogen for building muscle.
    although, retain2 is also great for building muscle too. if u would like to add it in do it.

    I cant find it so far, but i did find this..... shows no body comp change.

    Even though FT was increased, est was only slightly inhibited, and body comp had no statistical change...


    Effects of eight weeks of an alleged aromatase inhibiting nutritional supplement 6-OXO (androst-4-ene-3,6,17-trione) on serum hormone profiles and clinical safety markers in resistance-trained, eugonadal males.(Research article). Author(s)an Rohle, Colin Wilborn, Lem Taylor, Chris Mulligan, Richard Kreider and Darryn Willoughby. Source:Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition 4.13 (Oct 19, 2007): p13.

    Abstract:
    The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of 6-OXO, a purported nutritional aromatase inhibitor, in a dose dependent manner on body composition, serum hormone levels, and clinical safety markers in resistance trained males. Sixteen males were supplemented with either 300 mg or 600 mg of 6-OXO in a double-blind manner for eight weeks. Blood and urine samples were obtained at weeks 0, 1, 3, 8, and 11 (after a 3-week washout period). Blood samples were analyzed for total testosterone (TT), free testosterone (FT), dihydrotestosterone (DHT), estradiol, estriol, estrone, SHBG, leutinizing hormone (LH), follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), growth hormone (GH), cortisol, FT/estradiol (T/E). Blood and urine were also analyzed for clinical chemistry markers. Data were analyzed with two-way MANOVA. For all of the serum hormones, there were no significant differences between groups (p > 0.05). Compared to baseline, free testosterone underwent overall increases of 90% for 300 mg 6-OXO and 84% for 600 mg, respectively (p [less than] 0.05). DHT underwent significant overall increases (p [less than] 0.05) of 192% and 265% with 300 mg and 600 mg, respectively. T/E increased 53% and 67% for 300 mg and 600 mg 6-OXO, respectively. For estrone, 300 mg produced an overall increase of 22%, whereas 600 mg caused a 52% increase (p [less than] 0.05). Body composition did not change with supplementation (p > 0.05) and clinical safety markers were not adversely affected with ingestion of either supplement dose (p > 0.05). While neither of the 6-OXO dosages appears to have any negative effects on clinical chemistry markers, supplementation at a daily dosage of 300 mg and 600 mg for eight weeks did not completely inhibit aromatase activity, yet significantly increased FT, DHT, and T/E.
