T-mag forum,

I’m wondering what the effects of taking stimulants/amphetamines would be while high intensity training (maximum strength and power) with androgens. Amount of androgens metabolized per day would be around 100mg with an anabolic:androgenic ratio of 60:40 or more androgenic (example - just taking testosterone). Would there be any drawbacks???

Thank you.

What do you mean by “with an anabolic:androgenic ratio of 60:40 or more

Minor point: what you mean by 60:40 would be called a ratio of 1.5, but obviously that's just a technical point.

There are no synthetics that have a ratio
less than (more androgenic) than 1.5 other
than methyltestosterone.

So, if for some unfathomable reason this
ratio is important to you – I can’t imagine
why – testosterone is not just an example
of what you’d be taking, it’s the only
thing you could take. So why not just ask,
if I take testosterone? Because you’ve ruled
out everything else.

More importantly, I have no idea why you are
hung up on this ratio, other than perhaps having read claims that the ratio is important
and the numbers you specified should be followed, and assumed that that author was
correct. Evidence?
