Okay, so I decided to give VPX's methyl 1-test product "Monster TEST" a go and here's what I've got to say about it.
This **** is awesome. It tastes like ass and it kinda made my mouth numb when I would dose it, but I blew up on this stuff. I started off at a bodyweight of about 180. I was taking 4mLx2 each day (8mL total ed), 4mL upon rising and 4mL approx. 12 hours later. This totals out to 16mg of methyl 1-test each day. I was also using Lyle's UD2, mass gain variation. I was consuming about 1900 calories on depletion days, 2600 calories on maintenance days, and carbing up on about 7000 calories. I have also been doing HIIT cardio 3x/week and traditional cardio 3x/week. No other supplements were used except for protein supplements (still using Twinlab AM/PM and MRP proteins).
I was on Monster TEST for 15 days and my bodyweight topped out at 197!! Some of it was certainly water and glycogen, but some of it was certainly muscle as well. I didn't take body comp measurements, but I think fat gain was minimal. Arms increased about 3/4" (to 17.25"), chest was up to 46" and waist was at 32" at the end of the 15 day cycle. Strength was pretty good, but it's hard to know for sure as I was on a new program...but each session I used heavier weights than the last. Towards the end of the cycle, sprinting became EXTREMELY difficult to perform, my calves would pump up so quickly, it made it difficult to run even painful.
Things that I found particularly interesting:
- the amount of weight I gained, even though I was kind of dieting (with the depletion days). In the past, using Legal Gear, I had never gone above 10mg/ed so weight gain was expected...but I defintely gained more than I had anticipated.
- I did not experience any nose bleeds, as I did while using only 10mg of LG.
- There was no loss of libido
- I also didn't note any lethargy, even though I didn't stack it with any 4-AD, nor did I have any prostate or hair loss issues.
I'd also like to mention that a buddy of mine from back home hit me up about some prohormone information. This guy is an ph/ps/aas virgin so I made some recommendations to him. Although it may be frowned upon by many of the vets here, we decided to start him off on UG M1T @ 10mg/ed. He's been in the gym for as long as I've known him (we were roomies back in '98 and he'd been training for quite a while before then) and he's a big old boy. At the start of his cycle he was 226 (@ 6'2") and ripped to the bone. He decided to do 10 days on, 10 days off for 3 cycles using Formadrol v2 during his off cycles. He's now up to 245 and still ripped. He is holding water, but is still looking absolutely diesel. So, thumbs up to UG M1T as well. My boy did note that he became extremely lethargic and experienced a lot of muscle cramping, despite taking all precautions to avoid any potential side effects.
