Hey BBB, glad you could join, I think your theories on GH make a lot of sense to me so I am going to trust that until I can see a reason to believe otherwise…I still have yet to do my own experiments to compare diff protocols but everything you say makes sense to me and seems to be producing good results.
He wasn’t going for meso changes, just fatloss and lean mass maintenance so I scaled down the protocol a bit. I’ll prob run something like this when I first start and then step it up to your full protocol to see what the diff’s are.
Hussayn - the theories are BBB’s (so I can’t take credit for stealing them and adapting them) but basically they go something like this from my understanding:
Mimic the GH release pattern seen in puberty because what is natural to the body will likely produce the best results and min sides…how do we do that:
more days off between days on to let the system have a break from exogenous use causes less suppression of endodogenous production (somatostatin release) and keeps the body more sensitive to the effects of superphysiological doses of GH…so you are better off say using 6iu E3D vs 2iu ED…same amount of GH but better results and less sides.
shooting IM or IV means the GH will hit your bloodstream faster which means the GH goes to work right away and is out of your system faster which causes less somatostatin release and receptor downgrade from constant stimulation…when you inject Subq (into your fat under the skin) about half ends up in the lymph system which is slowly released.
lower doses spread through the day causes less negative sides than one or two big doses…most people experience negative sides like carpel tunnel and intestinal growth (GH gut) at higher doses (above 2-3iu)…to assess your tolerance start low (1iu) and work up to 2-3iu for a single dose to see what your cutoff point is where you start to see swelling of the wrists/ankles or adominal protrusion.
Dosing at specific times makes the most of what you use…
Early AM is when your levels are already high so suppression should be less when using at this time.
Pre-workout means you are burning more fat during your workout as fuel.
Post workout is the other time when your natural levels are high because this is when your body is trying to repair damage and cause growth of muscle cells so this is the most effective time to use it to build muscle.
Personally I don’t know if I agree with the late PM dose administration because you might be causing some negative feedback that could interfere with the body’s natural nightly GH production…personally I think I’d rather run into the night on nothing but I have also never used GH myself and only have what I have read and my own theories to go off so I need to test this out and see what sort of results each protocol gives.
