Hello there, beginning to research a female cycle of Osta and TB500. Decided to post my findings here on T-Nation.
A little background :
12 years lifting
6 years strength training, 2 years Strongman for funsies, then foot was crushed by tire (helping Ex escape from under his 1200lb tire when he thought his hamstring was tearing). So, arthritis in right foot now.
Started training BJJ a few months ago, enjoy it but now my knees are unstable, popping, possibly ligament damage and/or meniscus tears.
Left elbow pain when fully contracted (I.e. when tying a ponytail)
Plantars Fasciitis from heavy sled pushes, farmers walks in Chucks at gym, and also probably from jump roping and walking around barefoot in my concrete floored house.
Recent one rep maxs:
These maxs are from a month or two ago, as the knee issues have had me taking more rest than I normally like. Not sure if I can still do these numbers, but am guessing I’m still in the ballpark.
Researched with Osta before, and experienced excellent strength gains. I’m a female, so keep that in mind. Takes ladies more time to add numbers, so excellent for my standards is different from a gentleman’s standards. Also gained 25-30lbs bw during that time. Did notice muscles slightly larger.
Anyhow, combining these two for healing. Also will be using regular Comfrey poultices for expedited healing. This is an excellent healer on it’s own and have used it successfully many times. If you don’t know what it is, feel free to look it up. Generally use it overnight, or 24hours if it’s the weekend and don’t have anywhere to go. Miracle healer by itself, so am expecting nothing short of miracles with this combo.
Osta 25mg daily
TB500 2mg 2x first week, 1mg 2x/wk for 5 weeks
Comfrey poultice on one knee per night, switching knees each night. May poultice elbow and feet after knees show improvement.
Dosed Osta and TB500 today after meal.
Regarding other supplements:
Taking 1tsp Cissus Quadrangularis daily
4-8 capsules Fish Oil, so 500mg-1000mg omega-3 per day
Make bone broth weekly in slow cooker, drink one cup per day.
2-3tsp Calm+Calcium (calcium magnesium supplement for sleep aid)
