Blast and Cruise, and AI


#1

Hi,

When some is ON for year round, i mean i.e Blast and Cruise ( 200-250mg Test week on cruise time ) method, is it necesarry to take Aromasin ( beacouse it's not harash on lipids like Adex, raise IGF-1 levels etc. ) year round?

Next question...

Why people run Arimidex which lowering IGF-1 level which can inhibit gains?

Basically you are asking if it is important to control estrogen while taking testosterone. The answer is yes.

well, most guys aren’t running 1 mg of A-dex/day (which is typically the dose used in the studies that have shown it to lower IGF-1). usually .25-.5 mg/EOD…

^this is typically cheaper for most guys than Aromasin.

as far as Aromasin and cholesterol/IGF-1, i’ve seen some articles that claimed it lower IGF-1 and negatively affected lipid profiles, but i can’t seem to find that data right now…

also, take a look at this data, and you’ll see that Aromasin can lower IGF-1 leves, like most AI’s do

If you b+c you should be getting bloods done there fore the answer to your question will be what ever your bloods show
