No no… That was not the intention. I went for those for other reasons, mostly because I suddenly became single again and felt a need for some confidence as I had been in a monogamous relationship for 7 years. The reason I asked for the help was strictly to combat performance anxiety! There is NO anabolic effect in either of these, they are strictly ways of increasing blood flow to the member.
The only reason I brought them up was that I wanted to point out why the bloodwork was requested, and the results of it. As a result I can state for a fact that post cycle produces an EXTREME drop in levels, and if you have not planned out your PCT ahead of time, do it before it’s too late. The resulting lethargy can cause a rahter large drop in Gym Performance.
Strangely enough, even with those low levels, it has not been a problem the way I believed it might be, and the one dose of “V” I have used ended up giving me the staying power of a 17 year old!
On a similar but different note, I would like to solicite opinions on something. I have read a lot about folks stating their BF% before and right after a cycle, and from there counting their lean muscle mass. But from what I understand and what I have experienced personally, M1T tends to create some fairly severe water retention. If I used an electronic BF analyser and tried to derive lean muscle mass from the results, while my body was retaining 7 or 8 pounds of water, would that not throw off the results entirely?? Wouldn’t the overall hydration possibly even throw off the analyser??
IMHO I think that you can only get accurate results by measuring before the cycle, and probably 7 to 10 days after it. My personal results were a drop of 7% right after cycle (15 pounds of non fat mass), and a gain of 8 pounds, but 10 days after cycle, it was more like a drop of 1 pound, and 3% (7 pounds). While this is a rather remarkable difference, it is still highly admireable for a cycle of 2 weeks and the same time off.
Any takers on this??
