Prohormones: Lean Dry Gains with M-Sten

Comments| Posted in Blog By Kristina Vassilieva

If you've taken an interest in prohormones, there's no doubt you've heard about M-Sten, or Methyl Sten, short for Methylstenbolone, which was first brought to the market as Ultradrol.

Methystenbolone is one of the strongest compounds on the market, which makes it one of the most popular bulking compounds in the prohormone category. Where M-Sten stands out from the rest is the quality of lean muscle gain; its advantage is very little water retention, greater vascularity and definition. Another advantage of M-Sten is that it doesn't convert to estrogen. That means no problems "down below", either with performance or bladder.

The Benefits of Peptides

Comments| Posted in Blog By Kristina Vassilieva

If you think of hormones as crowbars, peptides are pincers. The big one gets noticed and achieves obvious results. The smaller one is more subtle and can be used with precision.

Researchers realised peptides can be used to get great responses by altering very specific sites in the body that affect chemicals involved in growth. When we're talking growth, that can mean quite a few things. Here's what peptides are involved with:

  • Gaining muscle
  • Losing body fat
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Muscle recovery

Most definitely an appealing list of benefits when it comes to bodybuilding. But what exactly are peptides and why should you be cashing in on this 'awesome sauce'?

One of the biggest challenges you'll face after a steroid cycle is keeping the gains you made 'on cycle'. It is exactly this issue that encourages the poor habit of staying 'on cycle' for extended periods of time. Clearly, this is not ideal since it can seriously damage your health and organs; our bodies aren't designed to take that kind of strain.

So how can you deal with 'off cycle' blues?

The simplest answer is bridging with SARMs. Simply put, they're built for this.

SARMs: The Truth about Ostarine

Comments| Posted in Blog By Kristina Vassilieva

Ostarine has been around for a number of years and is gaining popularity in the bodybuilding world.

But what is it and what does it do?

This infamous compound is hyped to have many of the positive effects of anabolic steroids but without any of the nasty side effects but that's just the tip of the iceberg. It has a treasure chest of health benefits.

By the way - don't listen to 'Big Pharma' propaganda or some random forum post you found online; Ostarine does not cause cancer any more than the aspartame in your Cola does. These studies are giving insane amounts of Ostarine to rats - and I don't think you're about to start swallowing handfuls of pills every day...

So, let's get back to why we love Ostarine...

How to Use Peptides: IGF1-LR3

Comments| Posted in Blog By Kristina Vassilieva

At its basic level, IGF1-LR3 is a synthesised version of insulin. However, if we compare it directly with insulin, IGF1-LR3 wears its pants outside of its tights and can stop a speeding bullet with its laser-beam eyes.

The letters stand for Insulin-Like Growth Factor and the numbers relate to the position of arginine in its amino acid chain.

The upshot of this is basically a supercharged insulin-like chemical compound with a long shelf life and legendary properties when it comes to fat reduction, muscle growth and restorative function.

Understanding prohormones and how they act is a good way to leverage the many benefits they have to offer.

So what do they do?

Well, they can increase the rate at which your body synthesises protein, which is of course how they add muscle mass, but there's more to pro-hormones that that.

They can also increase the amount of carbohydrate your body can store.

They can increase the production of HGH and other growth factors such as IGF-1 and MGF etc.

Pro-hormones can also boost creatine synthesis and at the same time reduce your cortisol levels.

They can boost nutrient partitioning and elevate your insulin sensitivity.

Pro-hormones can also improve your tolerance to high work volumes and can even help you focus.

So while the synthesis of protein is the most recognised method of increasing muscle mass each of these other factors can play a small, yet effective part on its own.

The Apocalypse is Coming: SD Matrix

Comments| Posted in Blog By Kristina Vassilieva

Sooner or later, if you're really serious about bodybuilding, supplements will be on your radar. No surprise - odds are you know people who've had great results using one or other of the supplements on the market. And let's be honest, odds are you know someone who's had a bad experience too. They might not say so but word gets around.

Learn from the mistakes of others. This is about getting the body you want, not being a crash test dummy. You could put a lot of time and money into supplement experiments without achieving the quality of results that matter to you. Be realistic - do you have the resources and knowledge for that? It's a great strategy if you understand physiology and body chemistry. Plus you need to track results consistently. That's not just about information, it can include changes in thinking and mood.
