Insulin Protocol/Experiences?

I’ve been using humulin r for about a month… I use 10iu pre workout and to be honest the pumps are out of this world. I eat low carbs and have gained about 12lbs using slin only. I know it’s dangerous to deplete carbs but I have messed around finding the least amount of carbs I can get away with without going hypo.

If anyone is experienced with insulin I was wondering if it could eventually shut the pancreas down and become insulin dependant… I only pin about 2 or three times a week to ensure I don’t gain a tolerance. What is a good protocol to follow?

I’ve never used it but Mike Arnold’s protocol is supposed to work pretty well.

Slin scares me, I doubt I’l ever touch it.

sure thing mate

30 minutes before workout
Inject 15 IU Humalog
60 grams Vitargo, Karbolyn (or similar).
20 grams of Hydrolyzed protein (whey, casein, or beef).
4.5 grams Leucine.
4.5 grams GPLC.
5 grams Micronized creatine monohydrate.
2 grams Beta alanine.
15 grams Glycerol monostearate
10 grams glutamine.
3 grams Taurine.
2 grams vitamin C.
500 mg Potassium.

60 minutes later
60 grams Vitargo, Karbolyn (or similar).
20 grams Hydrolyzed protein (whey, casein, or beef).
4.5 grams Leucine.
5 grams Micronized creatine monohydrate.
2 grams Beta alanine.
15 grams Glycerol monostearate.
10 grams glutamine.
3 grams Taurine.

60 minutes later
60 grams Vitargo, Karbolyn (or similar).
20 grams hydrolyzed protyein (whey, casein, or beef).

Note: You should consume a regular meal within 3-4 hours of beginning this protocol. Also, I don’t recomnmend doing it if it has been 5 or more hours since you heve last eaten, as your blood suagr will be pretty low when you start…so try to get in your last meal within 3 to no more than 4 hours before beginning the protocol.

Lastly, since you will be drinking your last shake either at the end of your workout or very close to it (unless you workout for many hours), there is no need to eat a whole food meal assoonas the workout is over. You can wait a good hour after consuming your fina shake before eating a post-workout meal, as your body will already be supplied with all the nutrients it needs to grow.

This program will work very well for you. Give it a shot. 15 IU is a good starting dose of insulin for a pre-wrkout protocol. The amount of carbs and protien provided is more than enough to use up 15 IU of Slin, but if it worries you, somply use 10 IU for your 1st time and then go up to 15 the next time. Your pumps will be through the ****in’ roof and you will quickly gain fullness, size and overall bodyweight. Bottom line: You will feel like you are using AAS for your first time all over again and will look much bigger within just 2 weeks. It will work better if you follow this protocol at least 5 times a week. Guys who train only 3 or 4 days a week don’t notice quit as good of results because they’re only using Slin 3-4 times per week.

Should at very least buy a glucometer, and check your fasted glucose levels in the mornings, establish a baseline whilst not using slin, then keep an eye on your levels.
