My HGH/TRT and metformin course
For all those interested I would like to outline some experiences of my recent 3 month cycle
I came off a 12 weeker of:
Weeks 1 -12 Sustanon 250 ï¿½?? 250mg EOD
Weeks 1-3 Anadrol 50mg ED
Weeks 7-12 Anavar 50mg ED
As soon as this cycle was finished A briged myself onto TRT doses and atrted the HGH and metformin this 3 month course looked like this
Weeks 1-6 HGH (hygetropin) 4iu ED (5 days on 2 days off)
Weeks 7-12 HGH (hygetropin) 8iu ED (5 days on 2 days off)
Weeks 1-12 metformin 400mg twice a day ED with high carb meals (some days I took 800mg with very high carb meals)
Weeks 1-12 sustanon250 ï¿½?? 125mg EOD
I know I may not have got everything right and I welcome criticism for my cycle which will be similar.
There is enough info about metformin in Bushys ï¿½??metformin safetyï¿½?? thread so I will not go into detail about its use, and I will only relay my personal experiences.
Metformin, The first few days you start on a lower dosage and build up, the main thing I noticed (and everyone did) was the effect on the bowels, for about 5 days or so I had a tremendous amount of gas and it really stank bad, I had to go outside it was that bad, so prepare yourself for this.
HGH, I developed carpal tunnel syndrome and had really bad hand pain and swelling, I think a different dosing protocol would be better for me next time, maybe 4iu E3d or EOD, I have seen so many different vets proclaim many different protocols as best it is hard to one, but 8iu ED 5 days straight was definitely too much for me.
TRT was great I need to get onto test E next time, I was just using up all my sus ( I bought in bulk a while ago)
To summarise my goals and achievements:
I wanted to keep as much of the LBM gains as possible from my cycle and cut down BF.
I went from 180lbs and 22% at the start of the HGH cycle to 175lbs and 14% BF, which was great for me, there are no before pictures but in my profile are some pictures at the end of the HGH cycle with 14% BF, which I am fairly pleased with.
I have come off TRT and HGH to prepare for holiday now I wanted to try and get my BF down to single digits in 5 weeks, unfortunately although the body weight has dropped dramatically I have lost too much LBM and remain at around 12-14% BF (tested again Thursday)
I tapered off the sustanon and I am on my 2nd week of Novladex, I have to say that I am coming off a lot better than I ever did any cycle, I also used HCG for the first time and feel that has really helped.
It was best to come off TRT instead of trying to take stuff abroad with me, even if I was not prosecuted just getting delayed at the airport and having my in-laws find out would have been devastating.
