I just completed a (6) week cycle of some of Biotest’s “best” products with mixed results. Following is the dosage plan that I used:
Weeks 1-4 Tribex (4 caps 2x /day), ZMA (3 caps /day)
Weeks 5-6 Androsol (70 sprays 2x /day), Methoxy-7 (2 Tbl 2x /day)
My training was constant (6 day split, training once every other day). My diet was constant (3400 calories, 40% carb, 30% protein, 30% fat) for the first 4 weeks, but per Bill Robert’s recommendation, I increased my daily intake by about 800 calories and 100 grams of protein for weeks 5 and 6.
For the first 4 weeks, I experienced no recognizable effect from either the Tribex or the ZMA. My weight remained constant at 206 lbs, my strength increased only slightly (normal) and I didn’t experience either an increased libido from the Tribex or better quality sleep from the ZMA.
Weeks 5 and 6 were a different story. About a day into this portion of the cycle I noticed an almost constant fullness, kind of like a mini-pump all day long. I didn’t feel like punching through steel (TC), but I did feel bigger, stronger and somewhat more aggressive. My training weights increased nearly every workout and I could tell from my cloths tightening that my measurements were increasing.
When I weighed in at the end of these 2 weeks I was pleased to see that my bodyweight had increased from 206 to 215, a 9 lb gain. Unfortunately, after doing my bodyfat measurements, I found that 4 of the 9 lbs that I had gained were fat. Still 5 lbs of LBM in 2 weeks is not bad for someone who’s been training for over 20 years and is usually a relatively hard-gainer.
Based on other feedback I’m assuming that the Androsol was more responsible than the Methoxy-7 for my gains, but to clarify this, I plan on taking them during separate (2) week intervals during my next cycle. Obviously I’ll also reduce the amount of extra calories and protein to try to avoid the fat increase as well. I’ll report back with these results in about 6 weeks.
