Abbreviations Help?

Hey guys,

I’m new here to T-Nation and have become an avid enthusiast of this website and Biotest’s products. I wanted to know of you guys could help me with some abbreviations though. I’ve searched the archives to try and see if there has been a post/topic in the past regarding this, but I have been unsuccessful. I have been doing a lot of reading in these forums and am unfamiliar with some of the general abbreviations that are used…not so much the abbreviations of the actual steroid types, but more-so general related. I mostly assume what they mean, but would like clarification is possible. I apologize in advance if this post may seem too “newbie-ish”, but I’m an eager learner.

Some examples are:

AAS (Androgenic Anabolic Steroids???)
PCT
LH
CP

And any others that you guys can think of that I have not listed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

David

You got AAS right

PCT=Post Cycle Therapy
ED=Every day
EOD=Every other day

There are boatloads of others that I’m not thinking of

That’s awesome! Thanks again. I personally like the ROFLMGDMFAO!!!

One that stumped me for a while was NPP. It stands for Nandrolone phenylpropionate.

Could you help me out? What do you mean by bump?

I moved it to near the top of the thread index so it would be easier to find. There’s a lot of information in that thread. It’s more than worth your time to read thru it.
