Training is feeling great on this stuff.

Saturday was shoulder-focus, highlights were hitting some light logpress for the first time since January and then strictpressing 155 for sets of 8 after. Also curled 20s for the first time since bicep surgery.

This morning was squat, after 4 doubles with 355 took it for a set of 8. Hyperextensions, db rows, glute-ham raises rounded out the posterior work.

Just a little on inner chest & rear delts where my shirt rides on them, but I believe that started after a few days in Florida before I ever started 3AD, due to all the humidity and getting in and out of water all weekend. Face is clear and things aren’t getting any worse.

Day 8 of 3Alpha
Bodyweight 214.2

Feelin’ juicy and strength appears to be trending forward still without issue. Week 2 and I have managed to hold my weight static, which is good.

Benchpressed up to a very easy single at 275 today, followed with 205 for 3x8, some 2-board work and accessories. Triceps are already aching!

Planning on adding a harsher oral this weekend for the last month of cycle. Candidates are 40mg M1A, 20mg Msten, or 15-30mg more S23 on top of whatever is in the current SARM stack. Going to hold at 75mg 3AD for another week.

Day 10 of 3Alpha
BW 213.6

Training today was feeling out ~90%. Squat 405 & 425 for doubles, then pulled singles up through 500 hookgrip on a stiff bar. Not much else worth mentioning but it felt great. Heaviest deadlift by far since surgery and weight moved fast.

As soon as I say no acne so far, wife and I realized last night I am indeed getting a bit of bacne coming in. Going to pick up some more B5 to go with carnitine to stay ahead of it.

Also took BP mid day about 1 hour after a 25mg dose of 3AD, and it was 135 over 66 with a pulse of 60, so added in one tab of Carditone last night.

I have settled on adding 40mg M1A starting tomorrow. It won’t require any further ancillaries and will be more convenient at 2 caps/day then messing with S23 liquid and it’s short-ass half-life. Need to really push towards a caloric deficit vs a recomp tho to keep my strength under control on M1A as my tendons continue to accommodate to real weights again.

I am loving this stuff tho so far. Way smoother and less noticeable than epiandrosterone and better, more consistent sexual function & energy. Not like taking bumps through the day just to get through, like a feel good and the half-life is sufficient taken 3x a day.

Very much like proviron honestly, in that regard.

Eh, i wouldnt base your decision to self treat your blood pressure on one not even appreciablely high reading. With a diastolic pressure of 66 and that pulse youre looking fine man. A systolic pressure of 135 could have been from a hundred reasons if you dont take it consistently.

I here you & agree. It’s been consistently over 127 on a calibrated machine, both at the grocery and at work, every single time I’ve taken it since I went back on cycle. I am just taking 1 tab per day and will get readings at different times over the week to make sure I’m not getting too low. Apparently the effect is cumulative in the system so it does demand attention and I will certainly take it back out or pulse it to keep things steady - that is actually the goal, not to stay on it.

BUT, on that note: just finished training and adding in my first dose of M1A (40mg daily). Never used it, but M1T jacks my bp up for real so I am anticipating a general rise.

Sound reasoning. Cant argue with that logic. Especially with the fact that you're adding in a compound that you know historically effects your blood pressure negatively.

do you think this may be worth running alone if traveling and won't be able to use test? interested in this.

could bring some sarms with me either 10mg rad add on top or LGD or something

This and RAD would be a good oral stack while traveling to keep everything running well if you don’t wanna PCT or bring anything illegal or injectable, definitely. My stack is all legal (SARMS, 3AD, M1A) and will be flying with it in a couple weeks in country.

Depending on length of trip tho, I will say many guys just load up on a longer ester right before they head to the airport and bring orals with them. If you put a personal use amount of anadrol in a small Vitamin bottle, checked or carryon, customs generally isn’t going to even waste their time looking at it. Worst case it’s confiscated, but they’re not testing it. They are looking for things that can hurt people.

This is how strength athletes compete around the globe - load up on long ester, then run orals til you’re back. Or set up a source locally, but that was harder before the internet.

Ive flown domestic a few times with sarms and andros in my carry on and they didnt even give it a second glance. Like hyde said, they are generally looking for weapons. As long as you arent carrying 1000 pills or going to someplace like saudi arabia you are fine. Worst case scenario they confiscate them and tell you to move along.

You know what they will give you a hard time about? A lever belt & powdered chalk. Every time we go somewhere for a comp we have to explain what we’re doing and why we can’t risk checking the comp gear.

As if somebody is actually going to try to attack someone with a belt lever

Looking good, man. Nothing like gaining strength while maintaining or losing weight. Curious, were you still a little nervous the first time you hit bicep curls again, even if you had plenty of time to recover? God knows I would be but I'm kinda neurotic about injuries.

Problem is length of trip is 6-7 weeks. And is not domestic...

Bought two bottles of the 3alpha though. 120 capsules is enough to run 75mg for 6 weeks, may even just start at 50 for the first week. May just run solo or will add the rad on top at 10mg. problem is I never ran rad before and don't want to run two first time compounds, would rather run just one (well, I've run epi andro and proviron. close enough probably lol)

Not really, at the Arnold both Kristin Rhodes & someone who trained with Brian Shaw when he was recovering from bicep surgery told me I would tear out the top from my shoulder before I would rip the new anchor out once it’s grown in.

Mainly just pissed that I have so much stuff to rebuild. Grip, curling, pressing, back strength, deadlift. It’s coming back though.

Glad to have you!

Yeah even test undecanoate isn’t going to be around for 7 weeks. Your plan is solid. 10mg is a good dose of RAD to get the benefits without the sides.

If you were fine with epiandro and proviron you will like 3AD.

Feeling great, energy is steady and I don’t feel lethargic at all from this stack. 3AD is still at 75mg per day for at least this week; it is definitely so much better than 1,250mg of epiandro. Only needs 3 doses a day & doesn’t have the peaks and valleys.

Strength is coming back up no doubt - squat 360x9 on Monday, and today benched 225 for 4 sets of 6 and some very easy 5s a bit heavier in the Slingshot after.

Day 10 of 3Alpha
BW 213.6

Also took BP mid day about 1 hour after a 25mg dose of 3AD, and it was 135 over 66 with a pulse of 60, so added in one tab of Carditone last night.
Been on 1 tab of Carditone/day for a week. Added M1A @40mg/day 5 days ago to this stack. I have already taken one dose of M1A a couple hours ago and not had my Carditone yet today and just took bp:

122/63, pulse 68. That’s a pretty significant drop in a week, despite adding a harsh oral. And zero perceived sides or discomfort (I have occasionally felt like my nose is slightly stuffy but NOTHING like what tadalafil would cause). Extremely impressed.

Unrelated, loving how hard my muscles feed on 3AD. My left tricep looked good but felt mushy after not being able to use it for 3 months - training it has made it slowly better, but introducing 3Alpha has it flat out SOLID.

Gains I’m sure (I plan to maintain weight post cycle), and hardness I’m sure won’t be - that is a temporary aesthetic benefit from highly androgenic hormones like DHT.

It’s a great feeling while it’s around! Very addictive.

BW 221.6

Feeling beefy and solid! No noticeable change in sides with 100mg so far vs 75mg - taking 2 caps with my first dose of day, then 1 cap two more times daily. Libido has calmed down some as I’ve accommodated but function is still very good! This is a terrific otc “test base” to supercharge a stack. Mood & energy are nice on it too.

Training is going well. Hit 192x5 on a 10” logpress (longer ROM than a standard 12”) Saturday, Monday I squat 365x10, & today I benched 360 in a yellow slingshot before some back-down raw work. I haven’t even held over 275x1 on bench since bicep surgery, so this was really cool!

Feeling good, very impressed how I feel on this cycle. Did a deload session yesterday with some farmers walks, strict press, deadlift, triceps, pull-ups, & back extensions - everything easy peezy.

Heading down to Florida this weekend to watch the filming of the finals at World’s Strongest Man. Thor appears to have hurt his ankle sadly, so it could be a year for a new champion!

Looks like the Farmer’s Walk portion at the very beginning, or more likely truckpull prior, because as he transitioned to the first Yoke from the farmers he is already hopping.

His IG said torn plantar fascia. But he’s not stopping lol.
He gave all he had, but he only managed 3rd this year. Mateusz took 2nd place and Martins is the 2019 World’s Strongest Man!

Yeah sides are next to nothing, very easy to manage. Good power.

Where did you get mechabol?

World’s Strongest Man was a lot of fun - glad we made the trip down. Got to watch the last 2 qualifier events and all of the Finals on Sunday. Did all the beach things & haven’t trained since the deload session Thursday, which I’m fine with. Starting to feel pretty thick again! Finally got some sleep last night and back to training tomorrow.

06/22/19 - Day 32
BW 223.6

Made it through a busy week at work and not quite enough sleep, but still had some productive training. I have used 50mg of 3AD twice a day for several of the days rather than 4x 25mg doses and it still seems to cover the day much better than epiandro - the half life must be much longer!

Did a lot of deadlift volume Wednesday that was preceded by dynamic front squats against chains, which had me sore for 3 days after, and benched 245x10 touch ‘n go pretty handily Friday. Mainly some bodybuilding junk besides that - I had an absolutely wicked pump this morning doing some upper work involving shorter rests and giant sets. Did take 50mg 3Alpha with my normal preWO concoction and boy did it seem to make a difference.

ZOO has a log going, pretty sure he does split doses on off days but all preworkout on workout days.

6/24/19 - Day 34

Had a bad burst of acne from the beach trip to World’s (sunscreen, humidity and sand coupled with 3AD made for the perfect storm) that’s finally healing up a week later it seems. Energy is still solid. Tomorrow is last day of 3AD Wish I had ordered some more! But cycle is drawing to a close in another week anyway. It will only be 9 weeks, but I don’t have any HCG on hand and really can’t justify staying on longer with no comps in immediate future.

BW 226.4

Well, the magic is over...2 bottles last me 5 weeks at 75-100mg. I am taking a few days on epiandro/4andro as I finish my last week of this M1A & prepare my thoughts for comparison for the final review, but I can already say I miss 3AD.

Gained 12-13lbs on this leg of the cycle, but given the stack I ran & hitting the rebound off the diet that’s very much expected. What I want to stress is how awesome it was having 3AD on board. I loved it and think it will become the new standard for otc “test base” options for anyone who gives it a shot.

Interesting brother. Gotta be honest I didn’t expect 3ad to be that good....

Also; awesome review. I love the stuff at a medium 50mg as an add-on. The fullness is there for sure
