I’m thinking that 4-AD-EC must have a longer half-life than expected, giving significant benefit even in week 3. I will be very interested to find out the results from the University study we’re having done.
It’s the only way I can account for the otherwise-unheard-of phenomenon of continuing gains in week 3 (this does not happen with any 2-week pharmaceutical steroid cycle using short acting esters and orals that I’m aware of.)
It works out quite fortuituously that 4-AD
has such low suppressive tendencies that you still get fast recovery in week 3 while still making gains. When Androsol was introduced, I had no idea that 4-AD would be as low-suppressive as it is (nor for that matter any idea that it would have so little, if any, effect on the hair – at that time I was telling people they should expect hair loss because “all androgens cause hairloss in those prone to MPB.”)
Sometimes things just work out better than expected!
