Alpha Male Results

Hi Guys,

I’m wanting some result/s information about the use of Alpha Male. I’m after serious information like, lean muscle gain/ or weight gain from the use of Alpha Male and the age of the user and the duration of the cycle. i’m not after the effects like sex drive, acne etc.

The reason i’m asking is the here in Adelaide (Australia) a bodybuilding store sells Alpha Male for $159.95 which in USA is $119.00.

If i purchase this product it will last me 6 weeks.

thanks again

Well since i got an overwhelming response. I decided to purchase the Alpha Male and started taking it yesterday. It cost me $119 USA here in Australia so im using it over 8 weeks.

I’m going to be keeping a 8 week log of results of using the product. This will include workouts, diet, pictures,Bodyweight, bodyfat levels and cycling (number of tablets per day takin).

I’m going to use Alpha Male for 8 weeks my cycle is: 5 days on , 2 days off.

Week 1
6 Capsules per day

Week 2
5 Capsules per day

Week 3
4 Capsules per day

Week 4
3 Capsules per day

Week 5
2 Capsules per day

Week 6
2 Capsules per day

Week 7
1 Capsules per day

Week 8
1 Capsule per day

My Training is: Train each bodypart every 5,6 days.

Day 1
Morning: Biceps, Triceps
Night: Cardio (12-15 minutes)

Day 2
Morning: Quads, Hamstrings and Calves
Night: Cardio (12-15 minutes)

Day 3
Off

Day 4
Morning: Chest, Back, Forearms
Night: Cardio (12-15 minutes)

Day 5: Off

I’m including cardio only because i need to increase my cardiovascular levels because of my job which im starting on 23 February 2005.

My next post will be a before picture, Bodyfat levels, bodyweight, height etc.

You’re supposed to start off at 2 capsules per day and make your way up to 6 capsules per day :stuck_out_tongue:

Well thats not correct! It doesn’t say on the bottle that you need to start with 2 capsules a day!

Considering i spent alot of money on this product i wanted to design my own cycle. And the main reason for this is so the bottle last me longer…

And also i want to go on a high dosaage and taper off until the eight week and then start at 6 caps a day on week 9!

There is no need to taper. You can’t test a product out by taking it incorrectly.

I don’t think you’re going to get great results considering you’re using 1/6th of the max dose on some weeks.

What’s the point in making a bottle last longer if you don’t use it in a manner to get the most from it?

I don’t see the point in tapering the dose. This isn’t an androgen. Besides, tapering no longer seems to be the way to go when using androgens anyway.

You will probably better off using Alpha Male at the full dosage for two weeks followed by two weeks off. This way you could do have three two-week cycles.

You could do the same thing with 4 capsules a day and get five two-week cycles out of two bottles.

Yah, the doseage guideline came with my RED KAT bottle. It didn’t say the same thing for my Alpha Male, but it has the same ingredient and more, so i assumed.

Quoting my pamphlet:

"we strongly encourage first-time users to utilize a break-in period of escalating doses. In adddition to allowing the body to acclimate to RED KAT, going through the break-in period helps you fine tune your dosing. It’s not uncommon for users to find that lower doses are highly effective and deliver all the desired benefits.

Begin the break-in period by taking one capsule two times per day for hte first week. The second week, if you choose to increase the amount of RED KAT, add an extra capsule to one of the daily doses, which would bring your daily intake to three capsules. The third and last week of the break-in period, if you opt to increase the amount again, add in the fourth and final capsule."

I could see it corresponding to a changing volume program or having to deal with outside stress. No one thing is always perfect or always sucked. I took 4-AD-EC “incorrectly” and still received great results… Well I felt they were great. I put on around 14 lbs. and kept it fairly lean. Enough to have my friends who see me everyday say “damn you’re bigger” From a bottle of the orginal 4-AD-EC (yeah, it tasted horrible. I wanted to kill myself taking it, but it was a good grossness) Anyway, I took it only on training days. This was a simple way of changing it in response to outside factors and my volume. When I wasn’t taking it due to work, school, general business, etc. I had no need to go for enhanced recovery since I wasn’t training. But if I piled 3 workouts in 5 days. Then I took it five days. It was something a little different. But turned out working pretty well.

Now if you can devote 4-6 weeks with the knowledge of what you’ll be doing and arrange your priorities. Of course just taking it straight will be the best :wink:

Well Guys thanks for the input!

I’ll take it on board!

No offense man, but this is one of the worst diets I’ve ever encountered on a body building site. This diet only constists of 2214 calories and 275g of carbs, a lot of which come from empty calories, and simple carbs. There is also no mention of pre or post workout meals. You don’t have any fruits or veggies. Needless to say, I would be quite suprised if you gained any weight with this diet. Alpha Male is powerful, but it isn’t powerful enough to give results with such a poor diet. Anyway, rather than go on all day about what is wrong with this diet, I’m just going to post a link to my bulking diet. http://www.t-nation.com/readTopic.do?id=522756
