People underestimate just how effective insulin is, its a stronger hormone for growth than test by far.
Improve your insulin sensitivity and make better usage of your androgens.
Westclock - if you don’t mind (and nobody freaks out because this is in the wrong section), could you please elaborate on that statement being as specific as possible? I think that you are talking about timing your simple carb intake to cause insulin spikes at opportune moments. Is that what you are referring to?[/quote]
Well yes that is DRAMATICALLY helpful while on cycle, even more so than normal, but that works fairly well whether your fat or not simply because your body is desperate to replenish glycogen postworkout anyways.
What I meant is that having maintained low bodyfat levels for a while before you start your cycle, then while on cycle, eating a large amount of carbs.
The less fat you have the more of that insulin goes to the muscle tissue.
Insulin is likely the most anabolic hormone out there, but it causes growth of BOTH fat and muscle tissues.
The less fat you have the less effect insulin will have on the fat, and the more will go to making you grow a great set of wheels.
This is an overly simplistic explanation, but all Im saying is that limiting your insulin (eating low carb) or wasting insulin (being fat), is going to have serious effects on how much you gain on cycle.
And dont forget, as was mentioned, body fat levels and aromase are related, therefor the fatter you are the more likely you have to have high estrogen problems.
