My first pro-hormone cycle. Advice needed.
Iâ€™m 37 years old, 5â€™5â€ and 163-168 lbs usually. I used to compete in powerlifting 20 years ago (123lb class) and Iâ€™m now committed to getting back the body I used to have and to be in the best shape of my life by age 40, earlier if possible. Iâ€™m on about a 6-7 day rotation on my workout which consists of 4 days weights and 2-3 days of cardio or rest mixed in. I work out with intensity and Iâ€™m always trying new exercises to keep it interesting.
I drink about 4-6 double serving IDS whey protein shakes (46-50 grams each) each day when possible. I take gobs of suppliments spaced throughout the day. Some of which are by SAN (CM2, OX, NAG, BCAA-Pro and sometimes Lipidex and CLA but they give me the ****s). I also take loads of vitamin C, L-Arginine, multi-vitamins, and Psyllium Husks. Iâ€™ve tried both Endotest Pro by SAN and also Stenandiol 3.0.
A little bit of background info. I recently thought I had ED but it turned out to be mostly nerves (performance anxiety) with the new girlfriend who turned out to have multiple personalities, but thatâ€™s another story. Crazy bitch. Anyway, I went to my doctor and they did some bloodwork to check my Thyroid and Testosterone level. They said both were normal. My Testosterone was 315 ng/dl and they said 240-820ng/dl or something like that was normal. Other sources said 350-1200 ng/dl was normal. Weâ€™ll I didnâ€™t want to be at the bottom end so I ask about bumping it up some. Iâ€™ve now gone to an endocrinologists at my doctors request who did more bloodwork. Iâ€™m awaiting results now. Iâ€™ve always suspected I had a low T level. I seriously doubt he will do anything for me.
Anyway, I explained my situation, not being able to grow worth **** and low T level, to my local nutrition center guru. I asked him to set me up with a program of suppliments. He showed me some pro-hormones that I know nothing about.
The nutrition guru recommended I start on:
Legal Gearâ€™s Methyl 1P for 1 bottle (75 capsules at 3 caps per day for 25 days), then immediately go into ALRI something (I assume its MAX LMG or Ultra HOTter) for a full bottle, which I assume is about one months worth and then immediately into Gaspari Nutritionâ€™s Orastan-E (90 caps at 3 caps per day for 30 days). I would also be taking the Stenandiol 3.0 with it for the first 8 weeks through mid-cycle I assume. Following this 90 day pro-hormone cycle, I would take German American Technologiesâ€™ Testrol and Hi-tech Pharmaceuticalsâ€™ Estrogenex for 1 month I think for the PCT.
I have no idea what Iâ€™m doing so I need your advice. I tend to be conservative, so I would normally want to try each pro-hormone above for 30 days with the PCT of Testrol and Estrogenex in between cycles, but he tells me to do them back to back (90 days?) before the PCT. He says that they each work off different receptors or something so its OK to take them back to back. I donâ€™t want to **** up my body anymore than it is, and Iâ€™m worried about pituitary shutdown of Testosterone and making my 315 ng/dl drop even lower the rest of my life. Iâ€™ve heard a little about â€œno DHT conversionâ€ but Iâ€™m not sure what that is exactly. Can you guys offer some advice. I think Legal Gear referred to a shutdown after 30-60 days with 30 being advertised. So what should I do?
Clueless and conservative.
