    Thoughts on going straight into sarms after my steroid cycle. Also a good sarms shop

    As above. Has anyone tried it before. I watched a video the other day and this guy swears by it because it apparently helps keep the gains you loose during pct. I’m just doing a short cycle of steroids. Test p Dianabol and NPP for 6 weeks. I was thinking I’ll run mk677 throughout it...

    Old Kunts

    I look at old kunts with no mobility, no strength and no energy who can barely walk and, like everyone else I guess think if only they'd lift and do some cardio that'd fix it. But I've been wondering if that's too simple a solution. Are most garden variety old kunts incapable of doing a training...

    Safe to add new HCG to old reconstituted HCG?

    About 6 months ago I had to travel and I left behind about 5ml of bac water with appx 2500iu of HCG. I know the HCG has lost its potency due to it's short shelf life once mixed with bac water. Am I able to add HCG into it effectively reusing the water/old HCG mix?

    Study of pro bodybuilders: 4 days vs 6 days per week with equal volume yielded equal

    Another cool graphic put together by Thomas Coughlin, this one on our study that investigated the effects of 4 vs 6 training sessions a week where both groups worked each muscle twice per week on a volume-equated basis. The really cool thing about this study is that subjects were pro...

    Probably a dumb question but I'm going to ask anyway
