Bridging in Bodybuilding: An Introduction

A bridge can be described as anything that connects two points. However, in the bodybuilding world there are numerous points, and we want to focus on precisely two points, which are: the end of an anabolic steroid cycle and the beginning of a new one. Therefore, a bodybuilding bridge can be described as the sum of all actions taken from the day a cycle ends to the start of a new one.

Since the majority of anabolic steroid users do not stay “on cycle” year round, they opt to run a post cycle therapy (PCT) for a multitude of reasons. One of the most critical aspects of a post cycle period is having the body produce testosterone on its own, while achieving a hormonal balance. Therefore, it is no surprise that for many users the biggest concern is keeping the gains made on cycle.

One of the most prominent questions regarding the end of a cycle is “When can I get back on cycle?” Well, the general rule of thumb is: time on cycle + PCT (in weeks) = minimum time off. Thus, a 12 week cycle with a 6 week post cycle therapy would yield 18 weeks off cycle. These 18 weeks would be the bridge period, where the ultimate goal is maintaining the gains made on cycle after a successful post cycle therapy.
This is where the new school term “bridging” has made its mark. A successful bridge is one that not only restores hormonal balance, but also allows the user to maintain the majority of their gains made while on cycle. Unfortunately, the hardest aspect of coming off a steroid cycle is watching your gains fade away, leading to a great amount of frustration. This is why many users decide to stay on cycle for extended periods of time, which ultimately becomes a serious health risk, and leads to long term consequences. However, if there was a way to keep your gains and still recover properly, would you be interested?

A proper bridge can certainly increase the potential of keeping gains, but to make that happen one must understand all the variables and factors involved. The first step is to educate ourselves on what actually occurs during a PCT and the post-post cycle (bridge period).

Introduction to Intramuscular Injections

When considering injectable steroids, there are some fundamental aspects you must learn.  Unfortunately, many individuals who decide to begin using anabolic steroids, often overlook proper injection techniques.  As a result, this jeopardizes the user’s health and safety in many ways.  For instance, poor injection techniques can lead to abscess, infection, nerve damage, and many other serious consequences.  In fact, we have all heard the horror stories on what can go wrong with intramuscular injections, so lets go over the steps we need to follow for a safe intramuscular injection.

Sterilization
Sterilization is the most important aspect of any injection.  Remember – you are about to inject a foreign substance into your body, and there can be no room for error.  Therefore, any and all materials should be 100% sterile.

  • Needles and syringes are single use only! They should always be properly sealed in packaging, with no evidence of prior usage.  All vials should be fully sterilized with an alcohol swab prior to use.
  • Injection sites should also be swabbed with rubbing alcohol to sterilize the area.
  • Never touch the needle tip with your hands or fingers.
  • It is a good practice to use separate needles for drawing and injecting the substance, as this ensures a sharp and sterile tip.

Use of the proper needle
An intramuscular injection is just that – in the muscle.  However, many individuals fail to use a needle appropriate for the site they are injecting in.  Using a needle that is too short prevents the oil from reaching the muscle tissue.  This leads to the oil being trapped within the subcutaneous layer, right before the muscle tissue, and when the oil does not reach the muscle tissue, the body does not absorb it efficiently.  The trapped oil can cause abscess and infection, accompanied by severe discomfort and bruising in the injection site.

In the opposite situation, using a needle that is too long and going to deep can puncture vital structures of the human body such as nerves, arteries, lymphatic ducts and many other things you should never want to pierce or inject in.

Injecting the proper amount of oil
The muscle group you inject in can safely accommodate only a certain amount of oil.  This amount will obviously vary from person to person, depending on muscle mass and experience.  It is safe to say that anyone starting out should limit injections to one cc at a time.

Pre-injection techniques
There are several things one can do before injecting, which can make the experience more pleasant and less painful.

  • Taking a warm shower before injecting.  For some, this relaxes the body and relieves tension in the muscle.
  • Warm the vial slightly above room temperature by rolling it in your palms for 5-10 minutes.
  • Massage the injection site before injecting.
  • Any air bubbles remaining in the syringe should be ejected before administering the injection.
  • Intramuscular injections should be done at a 90° angle to ensure the needle reaches the muscle, and to reduce pain.
  • Needles should not be “darted” into the body.

Aspirate
Neglecting this step can quickly put you in the hospital, or even worse.  Once the needle has entered the muscle and you are ready to inject, you must first pull gently back on the plunger as if you were drawing in liquid, and wait approximately five seconds.  This will identify any potential blood lines you may have hit.  If you do not see blood enter the needle, you are good to inject the oil from the syringe.  However, if blood enters the needle, you must withdraw the needle completely and start over, as this means that you have entered a bloodline.  This step can not be overlooked because injecting anabolic steroids directly into the bloodstream can cause death.

In the event you aspirate and see nothing, yet halfway through the injection you feel a sharp burning, taste a funny taste or begin to cough, you must withdraw the needle.  Chances are you went through bloodline initially and the injected oil is beginning to seep in.

Injecting
If the aspiration went well, you may proceed slowly and carefully to begin the act of injecting.  Do not force the plunger of the syringe down – injections should be slow and steady. Once you have cleared the syringe of fluid, pause for a brief moment and then slowly withdraw the needle. After the needle has been removed from the injection site, immediately apply pressure on the injection area with an alcohol swab, or sterilized cotton pad.

Post injection
When the injection is complete and any bleeding or seepage has been stopped, it is acceptable to gently massage the injection area.  This will help disperse the oil into the muscle.  What’s more, some individuals may also find it useful to apply a heating pad to the injection area for a short period of time.  Due to the nature of certain compounds being injected in the muscle tissue, gentle massaging and applied heat can alleviate soreness and swelling as the compound settles in the muscle tissue.

In the event you withdraw the needle and experience excessive bleeding from the injection site, do not panic.  Immediately apply a sterile alcohol swab or cotton pad, and apply pressure to the site.

Conclusion
With this basic introduction to intramuscular injections, you now have the necessary knowledge so safely administer your injection.  There are several injection sites to choose from, many of which depend on the volume of fluid being injected.  Several injection methods also exist, and can be used as one becomes more experienced in intramuscular injection. Meanwhile, inexperienced individuals should begin with the basic injection guide listed above to ensure a safe and efficient intramuscular injection.

Proper Injection Techniques Ⅱ

The Injection Procedure for Intramuscular Injections

The actual injection is very simple, but just like with most things in life, the devil is in the details.

Preparation

Before you do anything, sanitize the counter you will be using with an anti-bacterial all-purpose cleaner, and wash your hands thoroughly.

After sanitizing everything, lay out everything needed for the injection: 2 withdrawing needles, 2 injecting needles, 2 syringes, 70% rubbing alcohol (or 99% isopropyl alcohol), cotton balls, Band-Aids, a sharp/hazardous material bin, and of course – your steroid vial(s). Always have extra needles and syringes laid out just in case you drop something, or decide to change injection sites last minute.

Once everything is laid out, the first step is to clean your injection site. Generously soak a cotton ball with alcohol and wipe your injection site thoroughly. Clean the entire injection site, and not just the area you are planning to inject. For example, if you are planning on injecting into the upper-outer gluteus quadrant, sanitize your entire gluteus, not only the upper and outer portion.

Furthermore, remember to sanitize the top of the steroid vial, even if it is a new steroid vial. In such case you would need to sanitize the top of the vial after peeling away the tin cover.

Getting the needle ready for injection

Carefully remove the syringe from the sanitary packaging and twist on the withdrawing needle tip. Be very careful not to touch the connection point between the syringe and needle tip. Slide off the needle tip cover and withdraw as much air into the syringe as you plan on withdrawing in substance. For instance, if you are going to inject 1 milliliter (mL) of substance, withdraw 1mL of air into the syringe. The reason for injecting the air into the vial is to maintain the right osmotic pressure in the vial.

Insert the needle into the vial at a 90-degree angle so that the syringe and top of the vial are perpendicular to each other. Next, flip the vial upside down (with the needle still in the vial) and inject all the air into the vial. After you have injected all the air into the vial, pull back on the plunger of the syringe and withdraw the desired amount of compound into the syringe. When you’re done, flip the vial back upright and withdraw the needle from the vial.

Finally, all that’s left to do now is to change the withdrawing needle tip to the injection needle and you are ready to inject. Put the cap on the withdrawing needle, twist it off and dispose of the needle in the sharps bin. Then take the injection needle out of the package, twist it onto the syringe, and take the cap off while holding the needle upright (so the tip is facing the ceiling). Flick the side of the syringe to bring any air bubbles to the top, and gently push the plunger on the syringe to remove all of these bubbles. Keep pushing the plunger until you see the first drop of oil come out. Remember, it is important to make sure to get all the air bubbles out prior to your injection.

You are now ready to inject!

The Injection

Locate the spot you plan to inject into, and spread out the skin in that area with your spare hand. Place your index finger and thumb on your skin roughly 2 inches apart, gently spreading apart your fingers to tighten the skin.

Slowly, but firmly, press the needle into the area between your index finger, and thumb. A small amount of pain and discomfort is normal, so there is no need to worry if you feel that. Additionally, it is also normal for the site to bleed a little bit during the injection. Keep pushing the syringe until the needle is all the way into the injection site – go slowly, and don’t rush.

Aspirating

The purpose behind aspirating is to check if you have injected into a vein. A lot of experienced steroid users do not aspirate, arguing that you would feel a jolt of pain if you injected into a vein, making aspirating unnecessary. In spite of the fact that this is most likely true, I still recommend aspirating. After all, it is always better to be safe then sorry.

Aspirating involves nothing more then slowly pulling back the plunger on the syringe prior to your injection. You should see a few air bubbles withdraw into the syringe. However, if you have blood coming into the syringe, you have hit a vein. In such case you must withdraw the needle immediately and dispose of it in the sharps bin.

Unfortunately, if you injected into a vein, you will have to start the whole process over again with a new injection site. As I noted earlier, if you did inject into a vein, you would most likely experience extreme pain and discomfort, so you would definitely know that something was wrong long before aspirating.

On the other hand, assuming you saw no blood when aspirating, push down on the plunger and inject the substance into your injection site.

How fast should I inject?

Overall, the injection should take 30-60 seconds per 1mL of substance. Therefore, inject slowly and don’t rush. When you have finished injecting all the substance, keep the needle in the site for a slow count of 10, and then slowly remove it from the site. Immediately after that apply to the site a cotton ball soaked in 70% rubbing alcohol or 99% isopropyl alcohol, and gently massage the area with the cotton ball for 1-2 minutes.

Post Injection

Apply a band-aid to the injection site and dispose of the needle with the syringe in the sharps bin. Store the steroid vial in a cool, dry, dark place away from direct sunlight for best for best conservation.

Sadly, some post injection pain is completely normal, especially for new injection sites. Hence, if you are experiencing extreme post injection pain (PIP), applying a heating pad and gently massaging the area will help disperse the oil into the blood stream and elevate the tenderness.

Injection Procedure for Subcutaneous Injections

The injection procedure for a subcutaneous injection is very similar to an intramuscular injection. Everything is the same except for the fact that you do not need to change needle tips or aspirate.

Preparation

Sanitize the counter you will be using with an anti-bacterial all-purpose cleaner and wash your hands thoroughly. After sanitizing everything, lay out 2 insulin syringes, 70% rubbing alcohol (or 99% isopropyl alcohol), cotton balls, Band-Aids, a sharp/hazardous material bin, and of course your peptide vial(s).

After everything is laid out, clean your injection site. Keep in mind that you need to clean the entire injection site, and not limit yourself to the area you are planning to inject into. For example, if you are planning on pinning right beside your belly button, sanitize your entire abdomen region and not just the area by your belly button.

Also remember to sanitize the top of the peptide vial. If it is a new peptide vial, you still need to sanitize the top of the vial after peeling away the tin cover.

Getting the needle ready for injection

Carefully remove the insulin syringe from the sanitary packaging and withdraw as much air into the syringe as you plan on withdrawing in substance. For example, if you are going to inject 0.1 mL of substance (which will correlate to a reading of 10 on the side of the insulin syringe barrel), withdraw 0.1mL of air into the syringe. The reason for injecting the air into the vial is to maintain the right osmotic pressure in the vial.

Insert the needle into the vial at a 90-degree angle so that the syringe and top of the vial are perpendicular to each other. Next, flip the vial upside down and inject all the air into the vial. After you have injected all the air into the vial, withdraw the desired amount of compound into the syringe. When you’re done, flip the vial back upright and withdraw the needle from the vial.

If there are any air bubbles in the syringe, hold the needle right side up so the needle tip is facing the ceiling and flick the side of the syringe to bring any air bubbles to the top. After the air bubbles get up, gently push the plunger on the syringe until you see the first drop of water come out. Make sure to get rid of all the air bubbles prior to your injection.

The Actual injection

Locate the spot you plan to inject into, and use your spare hand to pinch the area with your thumb and index finger in order to pull up roughly an inch of your skin. Slowly, but firmly, press the needle into the skin. The needle should slide in very easily due to being so thin. Keep pushing the syringe until the needle is all the way into the injection site.

Remember that it is always best to inject slowly and without rush. When you have finished injecting all the substance, keep the needle in the site for a slow count of 10, and then slowly remove the needle from the site. Immediately after doing the injection apply to the site a cotton ball soaked in 70% rubbing alcohol or 99% isopropyl alcohol, and gently massage the area with the cotton ball for 1-2 minutes.

Post Injection

Apply a Band-Aid to the injection site and dispose of the syringe in the sharps bin. Store the peptide vial in the fridge for optimal conservation.

Thanks to the fact that the needle will be very thin, and you will not inject a big amount of substance, there should be very minimal post injection pain from a Sub-Q injection.

Proper Injection Techniques

Must Know Information

Steroids are typically injected intramuscularly (abbreviated as IM) into large muscle groups. The most common injection sites being the gluteus (butt), quadriceps (front legs/quads), and deltoids (shoulders). Meanwhile, peptides such as insulin and human growth hormone (HGH) are typically injected subcutaneously (abbreviated Sub-Q). A Sub-Q injection is done into the subcutaneous tissue, the area between the skin and muscle. Subcutaneous injections are usually done in the lower ab area.

The most important thing when it comes to injection safety is keeping everything sterile and clean. A dirty injection site can lead to a very serious infection, which could require surgery or even amputation of the limb. As grim as that sounds, if you follow the steps and procedures that I will outline in this article series, you will have nothing to worry about!

What You Need For An Intramuscular Injection

  • 70% Rubbing alcohol or 99% isopropyl alcohol to sanitize the injection site and the top of the steroid vial
  • Cotton balls
  • Syringes – 3 milliliter (ml) syringes are the most frequently used
  • A sharp hazards disposable container (or a small plastic container with a screw on lid, such as an old protein supplement container)
  • A small band aid to apply to the injection site after the injection
  • A needle tip for withdrawing the oil from the vial with a length between 1 and 2 inches with 18 or 21-gauge size. (needle tip = pin)
  • A needle tip for injecting – a 23, 25 or 27 gauge needle with a length of 1 or 1.5 inches.

Note: The gauge of the needle refers to the diameter of the needle tip. Interestingly, as the gauge size increases, the diameter of the needle tip decreases. A small gauge number (that is – a thick needle) will allow the oil to be withdrawn from the vial quickly. On the other hand, a large gauge number will inject much easier into a muscle and create less scar tissue. This is why a small gauge needle tip is recommended for withdrawing oil from the vial (18G), and a large gauge needle tip (23G) is recommended for the injection.

What You Need For A Subcutaneous Injection

  • 70% Rubbing alcohol or 99% isopropyl alcohol to sanitize the injection site and the top of the peptide vial
  • Cotton balls
  • An insulin needle or a 1mL syringe with a 30 or 31 gauge needle, with a maximum length of 1 inch.

Note: Withdrawing peptides from a peptide vial will barely dull the needle, so changing needle tips prior to a subcutaneous injection is not needed.

  • A sharp hazards disposable container (or a small plastic container with a screw on lid, such as an old protein supplement container)
  • A small band aid to apply to the injection site after the injection

 

Where to Obtain Everything You Need For The Injection

The 70% rubbing alcohol, 99% isopropyl alcohol, cotton balls and Band-Aids can be purchased from any local drug store without any sort of prescriptions. Regarding the syringes, you can purchase them and needle tips from a local home care store or order them off of amazon.com. Order at least 5 extra syringes and needle tips in case you drop a needle during an injection. Never, under any circumstance, reuse needles/syringes or use a needle/syringe that has been dropped on the floor. Do NOT share needles or syringes with anyone, they are 1 time use.

Injection Sites For Intramuscular Injections

When doing an intramuscular injection, always inject the needle into the muscle at a 90-degree angle.

Gluteal injection

The gluteus (a fancy word for your butt) is the most common injection site because it is a large deep muscle with few nerves and blood vessels. Hence the reason I recommend beginners stick with the gluteus as an injection site for their first cycle, since it is very hard to do something wrong there or hurt yourself. When doing injections in this area, it is a good idea to alternate butt cheeks for each injection, which should be done into the upper and outer region of the gluteus.

Nevertheless, the gluteus injection can be somewhat tricky of an injection site if you are a larger guy, as it requires you to twist around in order to inject. This problem can be solved by getting up on the big toe of the side you are going to inject into, which will help pivot your hip forward and allow you to reach your gluteus easier. Setting up a big mirror behind you to watch yourself inject also helps.

Regarding the injection volume, 3mL (3cc) is the max amount of oil that can be injected into the gluteus at once.

Quadricep injection

The quadricep is another very popular injection site. In fact, it is a simple injection site to use because you are able to sit down while injecting, can use both hands and the injection site is right in front of you. You can inject into any of the 3 quadricep heads, but the middle portion of the outer quadricep head has the least nerve endings and blood vessels, and it is the spot I recommend.

3mL (3cc) is the max amount of oil that can be injected into the quadricep at once.

Deltoid injections (shoulder)

The deltoid (shoulder) is another very popular injection site. Similar to the quadricep, the injection site is right in front of you, and you are able to sit down while doing the injection. You can inject into any of the 3 shoulder heads, but the middle of the side deltoid is the most popular spot.

1.5mL (1.5cc) is the max amount of oil that can be put into the shoulder per injection.

Bicep

The bicep is an injection site that should only be used by experienced steroid users. After all, it is a small site, so it requires a lot of precision and can be somewhat painful. For best results, inject into the middle of either of the two biceps heads.

1mL (1cc) is the max amount of oil that can be introduced into the bicep with each injection.

Tricep

Similar to the bicep, the tricep injection site should only be used by experienced steroid users. You can inject into either of the two tricep heads, but the outer tricep head (the tricep head closer to your chest) has less nerve endings and blood vessels. Just like with the biceps, inject directly into the middle of either tricep head.

1mL (1cc) is the max amount of oil that can be injected into the tricep muscle.

Pectoral

The chest is a commonly overlooked, but yet a very easy injection site to use. Inject into the lower and inner region of the pectoral – roughly one quarter of the way up and three quarters of the way across your pectoral muscle (starting from the outside of your body). Bringing the arm of the side you are injecting into across your body will make the chest muscle puff out and easier to inject into.

1.5mL (1.5cc) is the max amount of oil that can be successfully injected into the chest with each go.

Latissimus Dorsi

The latissimus dorsi (often abbreviated as lat) muscle is a very thick muscle with few blood vessels or nerves. It is a great option for an injection site, but the injection is difficult to execute by yourself. However, if you have a friend or family member who is willing to do the injections for you, the latimus dorsi is a great site to rotate into your regular injection schedule. With your arms held overhead, inject into the dead center of the latissimus dorsi muscle.

2mL (2cc) is the max amount of oil that can be injected into the latissimus dorsi per injection.

Injection Sites For Subcutaneous Injections

As mentioned above, a Sub-Q injection is an injection into the subcutaneous tissue – the area between the skin and muscle.

You can perform a Sub-Q injection anywhere you can pinch an inch of skin with your index finger and thumb. However, the abdomen is the most common and easiest area to perform Sub-Q injections into.

Drugs administrated through Sub-Q injections are done using an insulin syringe or a 1mL syringe with a 31gauge needle tip. The insulin syringe holds a maximum of 1ml, and has small increments alongside of the needle going in sets of 10, all the way up to 100. A reading of ‘10’ on the barrel would correlate to 0.1mL and a reading of ‘50’ on the barrel would correlate to 0.5mL

Sermorelin (GRF 1-29)

Why would you never use Sermorelin? Well…there are many reasons why bodybuilders and athletes may not ever touch this peptide, but we will get into that later. Let me start off by saying Sermorelin is actually known to us by the name GRF (1-29). The original GFR (1-29) is, in fact, the root of the HGH molecule and that remaining peptide containing the first 29 amino acids is actually what is responsible for stimulating pituitary response. The name Sermorelin is the prescription drug name and this alone is why it is so widely prescribed by hormone replacement therapy clinics (HRT).

Introduction

Even though in bodybuilding circles we don’t hear much about Sermorelin, this doesn’t mean that this peptide does not have its uses. In fact, anti-aging and hormone replacement clinics have been prescribing it for years because it works as a clean GHRH. The problem for the bodybuilder or athlete is that it has a very short half-life of about ten (10) minutes. This becomes an unattractive feature when compared to the half-life of MOD GRF (1-29) (CJC 1295 without DAC), which comes in around 30 minutes. Despite its short window, it does bind quite effectively to the pituitary receptors. The other main down side associated with its very short half life is that it is quickly broken down by blood enzymes within minutes. This is why a GHRH peptide with a half life of 30 minutes or longer is desirable, since it will survive the blood enzyme death and allow it to circulate the body looking for hormone receptors to bind to.

Functionality

So, why would bodybuilders or athletes want to utilize Sermorelin over other peptides that have longer half lives like MOD GRF (1-29) or CJC 1295 with DAC? To put it simply, you could easily work this into a multi-dosing protocol along with you other long acting GHRH’s and GHRP’s. Let’s look at Sermorelin’s known positive effects like: increased lean body mass, reduced fat, increased strength, improved recovery, better sleep, strengthenining of the heart, enhancing of the immune system and increases IGF-1 production. Yes, while the ability of Sermorelin to act is short, it still promotes all of these factors stated above. Not to mention it also has the ability to increase protein synthesis, promote growth of all internal organs with the exception of the brain and promote and increase in liver glucogenesis. Despite its tiny half life, Sermorelin’s ability to increase IGF-1 in the blood stream will only further increase the function of the metabolism and the growth of new cells in muscles, bones and organs. Sermorelin is heavily pushed by HRT clinics and is often referred to as the anti-aging peptide since it is very good at reversing some of the effects of aging in adults. The fact that doctors can legally prescribe this peptide helps HRT clinics further their legitimacy and also offer a viable and more cost effective solution to prescribing exogenous HGH.

Dosage and Usage

Sermorelin, along with the other peptides you will use, comes as a delicate lyophilized powder that should be kept out of the light and in a cool dry place. Reconstitution is done with bacteriostatic water (BC water) or sodium chloride meant for injection. Injections can be administered one hour before workout at a dose of 200mcg-300mcg. Normally, Sermorelin injections are taken before bed at around 300mcgs. Of course, as with any GHRH, you will want to use this peptide alongside a GHRP like GHRP-2 or Ipamorelin for maximum release of growth hormone stores. Ideally, though user could still benefit from using a GHRH like CJC 1295 with DAC and a GHRP like Ipamorelin throughout the day and then utilize Sermorelin as a pre-bed timed dose. Do not discount Sermorelin as simply an anti-aging peptide. It can still help promote the growth of lean body mass and increase the availability of IGF-1 in the blood stream.

Side Effects

Sermorelin is pretty mild in terms of side effects, but, like most peptides, it has the ability to bring on head rush, flush feeling, some swelling at injection site, dizziness, and nausea. I could not find any cases where prolactin or cortisol levels were elevated by the use of Sermorelin. As always, listen to your body and follow a dosing protocol that is in tune with you goals.

Conclusion

While athletes and bodybuilders are not going crazy on the forum’s over Sermorelin, there is no doubt that it has its place in the community as an anti-aging agent and perhaps another tool to use within your current peptide protocol. The fact that it has been legitimized within the HRT community and is available via prescription also means that the effects attributed to this peptide have been well researched, studied and proven to work.

HGH Fragment 176-191

HGH Frag 176-191 is a fragment of the HGH peptide.  Scientists found that if they truncated the peptide at the C terminal region they could isolate the fat loss attributes associated with HGH.  Taking this fragment from HGH, including the peptide bonds from 176-191, they found they had developed a peptide that regulated fat loss 12.5 times better than regular HGH.

Introduction

There is no question as to why bodybuilders of the modern era utilize human growth hormone.  Its ability to regulate fat loss, pack on size and increase IGF-1 levels is just a few of the many attributes that many seek.  HGH Frag 171-191 was developed so that bodybuilders and athletes not looking for the growth properties from HGH could still reap all the results of its amazing fat loss properties.

HGH FRAG in Action

As a part of a peptide regiment, bodybuilders should seriously consider adding HGH Frag into their protocols.  It has an incredibly ability to regulate fat metabolism without the adverse side effects on insulin sensitivity.  By isolating the tail end of the GH molecule, scientist have found that HGH Frag 176-191 works even better than HGH to stimulate lipolysis (breaking down of fat).  In fact, it actually inhibits lipogenesis; meaning, it stops formation of fatty acids and other lipids.  Also, unlike other fat burning compounds out there, users will not experience hunger suppressing qualities or the jittery feelings that can be associated with ephedrine like compounds (think clenbuterol).  Since it does not compete for HGH receptors, multiple studies have shown that HGH Frag 176-191 will not cause hyperglycemia.  In addition, it will promote lean body mass, protein synthesis, increase bone mineral density, and better sleep.

Dosage and Usage

HGH Frag is like all of the other peptides we have covered and come as a delicate lyophilized powder that should be kept out of the light and in a cool dry place. Reconstitution is done with bacteriostatic water or sodium chloride meant for injection. In order to reap the benefits of HGH Frag, users will need to dose around 500mcgs per day.  This can be done by dosing 250mcgs in the morning pre-workout, and 250mcgs before lunch or 250mcgs before bed.  Users will also want to take note of the timing of injections and their diet at that time.  It is optimal to inject HGH Frag 176-191 on an empty stomach or with just protein in the stomach.  Like other peptides, HGH Frag has been noted to not work as effectively in the presence of carbohydrates and sugars.

Side Effects

The side effects most commonly associated with HGH Frag 176-191 are few but can include: redness or soreness at the site of injection, and excessive sleepiness or lethargic feeling.  Other than that, the positive side effects are many. HGH Frag 176-191 destroys fat, promotes lean body mass, does not affect glucose levels, helps to strengthen bones, can improve sleep patterns for many and helps protein synthesis.

Conclusion

For the cost and the ability to totally break down fat, HGH Fragment is an amazing tool to use along with your favorite GHRH and GHRP peptide protocol. The added benefits, without any of the nasty unwanted side effects associated with exogenous growth hormone, make HGH Frag 176-191 extremely attractive. No more worrying about thyroid issues, glucose sensitivity, tingling, or carpal tunnel problems. Just the ability lean out and increase vascularity while still being able to slab on lean body muscle.

Melanotan II

Many in the bodybuilding community have already heard of Melanotan II (M2) and its amazing ability to promote darker skin pigmentation.  What many bodybuilders don’t realize is that Melanotan II also comes with other added benefits that would be of great interests to those on and off cycle.   These can include weight loss, increased libido and lean body mass.

History

Melanotan II was first developed by a group at the University of Arizona with the intent of creating a peptide that could lower the risk for skin cancer.  They succeeded and found that they could increase the amount of melanin naturally with M2, which helps protect skin and organs from ultra violate rays.  As an added benefit, they found that it also increased libido in males who did not respond well to Viagra.  Studies have shown that Melanotan II could be used as a replacement therapy for patients with inadequate response to PDE5 inhibitors.  Also noted was the ability for it cause weight loss as well as decrease appetite.

Why Melanotan II

For a bodybuilder planning to compete on stage, there is a considerable amount of time and attention to detail committed before they are ready to compete.  Being muscled up and defined is only accentuated by a nice tan to make lines and definitions pop out and become more evident to viewers and judges.  Enter the heptapeptide Melanotan II, now bodybuilders can actually protect themselves from over exposure to the sun while boosting melanin.  This results in a darker and more tanned complexion.   When Melanotan II is added to a peptide protocol leading up to a show, it will boost melanin levels, resulting in tanner skin; in addition, it will increase fat loss and muscle hardness.

Dosages and Usage

Like every peptide we have discussed thus far, please remember that peptides come in the form of a white delicate powder and should be stored out of light in a cool dry place.  All peptides need to be reconstituted with bacteriostatic water or sodium chloride specifically used for injections.  In order to use Melanotan II effectively, you need to understand your skin type.  To keep things simple, we can go ahead and break skin types into three categories.

Skin Type 1:  Very fair skin, never tans.  Dosages: 50-60mgs or 5-6vials.

Skin Type 2:  Fair skin, burns but sometimes tans.  Dosages: 30-40mgs or 3-4 vials.

Skin Type 3:  Medium skin, sometimes burns and always tans.  Dosages: 20mgs or 2 vials.

Beyond that, if your pigmentation is already naturally olive or darker, you will need to use less Meanotan II for your tanning needs.  The tan results coupled with exposure to sunlight and UV rays should last a user all summer or through a season.

Daily Dosages vary depending on your needs:

For Erectile Dysfunction (ED): average dose is around 0.025 mgs/kg (1kg = 2.2 lbs)

For Tanning (skin pigmentation): average dose is 0.025-0.030 mgs/kg (1kg = 2.2 lbs)

Taking too much M2 can make you somewhat yellowish, so you need to start slowly with lower doses and move your way up.

Side Effects

The side effects associated with Melanotan II are similar to other peptides:  flushed face, headache, feeling dizzy, lethargy, nausea, white patches and possible soreness or redness at site of injection.  The benefits users get from Melanotan II are: darker skin pigmentation, appetite suppression, fat loss, lean body mass, increased libido and frequency of erections.

There is a serious anecdotal note about Melanotan II, some users have experienced serious nausea after using M2.  This is variable from user to user, but has to be a concern.  You need to feel out your dosages and start slow before you go head long into using this peptide.

Conclusion

In bodybuilding, especially at the competitive level, everything is taken into consideration even the darkness of your tan.  Therefore, it’s best you use a peptide like M2 for tanning instead of going to the tanning bed every day.  Remember guy, tanning beds cause cancer!

If you don’t compete, but still want to maintain an even tan this upcoming spring/summer, then Melnaotan II is the best peptide to work into your protocol.  Its added effects of sexual arousal and fat loss are welcome benefits for users who want to have that summer beach body. After all, what good is a buff tanned body if you can’t get it up.

Which Water Should Be Used to Mix The HGH with?

Plain sterile water for injection is the best diluent for somatropin. If at all possible you should use it. Alternatively HGH can be mixed with bacteriostatic water (0.9% sodium chloride), normal saline (0.9% NaCl) or water containing 0.9% (9 mg/mL) of benzyl alcohol.

Plain sterile water for injection should be readily available over the counter at any local pharmacy. If you cannot find it, see if you know any doctor or nurse – they have plenty of it. If for whatever reason you cannot find plain sterile water, you can also make your own:

  1. get the cleanest possible drinkable bottled water (preferably in glass bottle if you can find it)
  2. get a small glass bottle with reusable plastic cap
  3. put the small bottle and the plastic cap into a pot of water and boil it for a few minutes (to kill all the bacteria)
  4. at the same time boil your drinkable bottled water in another pot
  5. When both pots are boiling, take the glass bottle out, pour out all the water from it, put it upright and pour in the boiling water from your drinkable water pot. Seal the bottle with the plastic cap and let it cool down to the room temperature
  6. You now have sterile water which can be use to reconstitute HGH with. Only use it once to reconstitute a vial of HGH. As soon as you open the bottle, it will no longer be sterile, so the next time you try to use it, it can contain bacteria. Create a fresh one each time.

Generally each 10IU or 12IU somatropin vial is reconstituted with 1ml of sterile water. Using an insulin type syringe you first pull 1 ml of sterile water into the syringe and inject it into the growth hormone powder vial. Do not inject directly into the powder with force but rather let the water gently slide down the inside wall of the vial. Do not shake the vial. Injecting with force into the powder or shaking will damage the HGH molecules. After the water is injected into the HGH vial, there will be a few small lumps of powder remaining for a few minutes. Just put the vial into the refrigerator and leave it there for a while. After about 30 minutes, all of the powder should be dissolved into clear liquid, ready for injection.

Are HGH Muscle Gains Permanent ?

Short answer

Steroids + physical activity generally increase your muscle cells in size. Growth hormone + physical activity increases the muscle cells in size and multiplies them by promoting growth of new ones.

No matter how you gained your muscle mass, your body will always do it’s best to match the muscle mass to your physical activity levels. The harder/longer your physical activity, the bigger/stronger/faster your muscles will be. When you reduce your physical strain, the muscle mass will gradually be reduced to match it.

Long answer

Human body is a highly adaptive, energy efficient “machine” it is designed to sustain only as much muscle as is needed for each individual’s daily physical strain. A person used to doing heavy physical work (lumberjack, athlete, etc) will have much bigger muscle mass compared to non physically active individuals. Should an active person reduce his daily physcal strain his body will gradually adapt by reducing the excess muscle mass – so as not to feed and carry it around if it’s not needed.

The same works the other way around – if a physically inactive individual starts going to the gym on a regular basis his body will gradually adapt to the new hardship by growing more muscle mass in order cope with the person pysical activity level.

The speed and intensivity of the muscle building process is increased by introducing steroids or human growth hormone. Steroids rapidly inflate the existing muscle cells with protein and water while growth hormone stimulates growth of new muscle cells in addition to inflating the existing ones.

No matter if muscle mass was gained with the help of steroids, human growth hormone or hard work alone, the body will reduce it if it’s no longer needed. In theory HGH users should retain more muscle mass because of the increase in quantity of muscle cells, but don’t count on anyone noticing it:) If your physical activity goes down, so will your muscles – no matter how they were gained.

Muscle memory

On the positive note there is such a thing as “muscle memory”. Once the muscle mass is developed, even if it gets reduced due to inactivity, it will rapidly get restored should the activity levels increase again. A person starting to build muscle mass from zero might have to spend years to reach the bodybuilding type phisique, while a veteran bodybuilder who hasn’t been working out for years can get into top shape within a few months of hard work (or a few weeks weeks with HGH and steroids).

In addition to energy efficiency the body has another aesthetically undesirable inclination – to store energy (fat) and thus keep you prepared for potential bad times (periods of famine) which may or may not come.

The human body doesn’t care about fashion. We may want to look muscular with next to zero body fat, but the body is only interested in functioning efficiently. Why drive through the city centre with a trailer truck and almost empty tank of gas, when a motorbike with a full tank of gas will allow you to drive easier, faster and longer. The body aims to remove all unnecessary muscle and save as much fat as possible (to prevent you from starving if you run into hard times). It is exactly the opposite of what we desire:)

If you want to prevent your body from removing the excess muscle mass, you have to use it – stay active and work out on a regular basis. If you want to prevent your body from storing fat, you have to show it that food is always in abundance – eat small (protein rich, low carb) meals, many times per day.

Steroids Before and After

For the individual who has never supplemented with anabolic steroids there is always a bit of a mythical thought process that takes place; after all, you don’t know what to expect and based on what you’ve heard it can cause your mind to run wild. Often and quite commonly is the thought of steroids before and after; you see yourself as you are now, you imagine the anabolic advantage being added in and before your vision you see a massive pile of ripped to the bone muscle. In most cases this vision will be far from reality as the reality of steroids before and after is often far from the imagination of the rookie and largely from the imagination of popular culture and society. The truth is really simple; when it comes to anabolic steroids many do not know what they’re doing and this is especially true for the first time user. You can go to any gym and most have heard it a thousand times “If I took steroids do you realize how big I’d be?” The steroids before and after imaging in this individuals head is so misplaced it’s laughable but most truly believe if they ever supplement they will gain 20-50lbs of pure muscle. Even some veteran users have this delusion as many do not understand what true weight is.

Steroids Before and After – Bulking

If you’ve spent any time in the gym, regardless of how hard you’ve worked or how great the gains you’ve made have been inevitably you will always want more; it’s simply human nature. There are some who reach a certain level and they may be fairly satisfied but you’ll rarely if ever find anyone who will even begin to claim with a serious tone that they’ve reached perfection in their desired pursuit. As an individual who finds himself a part of the muscle game for whatever reason the bulking phase or as it is known in competitive bodybuilding “off-season” is the point in-which mass and strength are obtained. With the introduction of steroids before and after the results will most assuredly be nothing short of mind-blowing, especially your first time through. While you may have spent years adding ten pounds of pure lean tissue to your frame naturally, with the use of anabolic steroids you may very well find ten new lean pounds of tissue on your frame in a fraction of the time.

Through the use of steroids during the bulking phase it is very easy to pile on massive amounts of weight; a gain of 20-30 or even 40 pounds is not unheard of but it is important to note as powerful as steroids are more than likely the full brunt of the gain is not muscle tissue; just because you gained 40 pounds of weight does not mean you gained 40 pounds of muscle. When you are bulking, with or without anabolic assistance some fat gain is inevitable as is a fair amount of water weight; the laws of the universe do not change simply because you are supplementing with anabolic steroids. Nevertheless, make no mistakes, with the use of steroids before and after will take on a new meaning in your bulking season quite unlike it ever has before.

Steroids Before and After – Cutting

For any athlete when he attempts to drop weight he will inevitably lose some muscle tissue; the point of a good diet is to lose as much body-fat as possible while maintaining as much lean tissue as possible but some tissue loss will occur. For anyone who has never supplemented with anabolic steroids this can be a very frustrating reality; you’ve put the time in to gain the size and now you want to turn this physique into a ripped machine but in the process you lose many of your hard earned gains. As you progress you’ll more than likely pick up new and better tricks, you’ll find things that work better for you and allow you to preserve more muscle but you’ll find in most cases you’re still losing quite a bit. Again, enter the world of steroids before and after and when it’s time to diet you’ll find the steroids before and after effect to give “dieting” a whole new meaning.

With the use of anabolic steroids while dieting we are finally able to hang onto a large portion of the muscle mass gained in our off-season period of training. Sure, some of it will still be lost when the diet reaches a certain level of intensity and it must necessarily reach this level if we are to truly lean out but the difference in muscle loss versus muscle kept will be nothing short of miraculous. With them in play, steroids before and after a diet will give one a leaner more muscular physique, one that has held onto much of its strength even after losing so much weight; one that is harder to the touch, harder in appearance, more vascular and more pleasing towards the desired purpose.
