Dave, let me clear the air here on some of the confusion… I recommend the 1 vial cycle for someone who is either A. younger or either B. already has high levels of natural testosterone. Now, the typical middle aged male who already had declining levels of natural testosterone COULD go with 500 mg/wk for 10 wks. Recovery is recovery at that point and if you’re going to do it then I see nothing wrong with getting the most out of that first cycle. But what you have to realize is a male with a starting level of high average test levels can still yield the same benefits of someone who is middle range-low end of normal and uses 500mg/wk of test. In either case the person can still gain a solid 20 lbs of muscle from either 1 or 2 vials, the determining factor on this is what they were at to begin with
Arimistane also helps drastically reduce cortisol levels, which is a huge benefit during intense training sessions which will normally inevitably lead to your body spiking its’ natural cortisol levels. Cortisol is also known as the stress hormone and when it spikes in your body from intense training, it will severely limit muscle recovery if you don’t take measures to mitigate it with proper nutrition and supplementation. By keeping Cortisol low, you can expect to break through plateaus and intense levels of fatigue in your training which your body would typically not be able to achieve on its’ own.
Be aware that even natural or herbal supplements and testosterone boosters (available over the counter) can also have an effect on endocrine and metabolic functions in the body.
