Take Alpha Male in the Beginning?

Hi, I’m just beginning training, and my friend gave me a bottle of Alpha Male, free of charge.

Is this something I should fuck around with yet? I wouldn’t consider it yet, but I have it already. If not yet, when should I start using it, and how exactly?

I’m almost 22 if age is a factor. Thanks.

The worst that could happen is that it does nothing.

While this is true, if you’re actually just beginning training, I’d wait. That’s just me, though.

I’d wait two or so months to really get into a training/diet regimine, then add Alpha Male when you’ve got all the basics taken care of.

I think getting newb gains, then adding Alpha Male when progress slows would be your best bet.

I would at least train to get a foundation of strength before taking it and that is the least I would wait.

Actaully, I would hold off until I hit a plateau and not think about taking it until I had 12 consecutive good weeks of training in.

Impulse control is our friend. :wink:

I’m sure the expiration date is good for a long while. It was awesome of your friend to give it to you, but especially if you weren’t considering it yet, I’d hold off.

That’s a huge factor. You’re 21. Wait until you’re further away from your natural hormone peak to get the most benefit from it.

Two tablets once or twice a day. I forget exactly what the label directions are, but whatever it says, I’d follow it.

Thanks for the responses, I will wait at least until I’ve been doing some consistent training for a few months, if not longer. Maybe a year.
